It's that contraption masquerading as a bridge that does my head in. Makes me think of a finger crusher from the Spanish Inquisition.
Beyond a critical point within a finite space, freedom diminishes as numbers increase. This is as true of humans as it is of gas molecules in a sealed flask. The human question is not how many can possibly survive within the system, but what kind of existence is possible for those who so survive.
