And soon there will be nothing left.
No libraries, just the internet.
No public housing, just landlords.
No offices, just flexible working arrangements (provide your own laptop).
No schools, just online individually-tailored learning environments.
A lament for the demolition of Birmingham Central Library and the sad state of local government today.
The the post title is a variant of the Manic Street Preachers opening line from the song “A Design For Life”. Which was itself inspired by the inscription over the former Pill Library entrance “Knowledge gives us Power”.
