Design for Society isn't an anti-design booklet; really, it really is an anti-consumerist-design publication, in that it finds what most folk may agree are the socially and ecologically unsound values and unsatisfactory implications on which the approach of consumerist layout is developed. In so doing, it prepares the floor for a extra in charge and simply form of design.

I’m with Stupid / 17 2 It’s Not Merely Amusing— It’s Historical GENE: Men are, and have always been, the principal architects of history. GINA: Agreed. But— GENE: No, allow me. Women’s comparative insigniﬁcance as major players in the advance of civilization is the result of their virtual enslavement over thousands of years by the rigors and restrictions of their biological responsibilities. Though requiring enormous fortitude and emotional strength, this role remained subordinate, a condition perpetuated by men, who actively prevented women from achieving even a semblance of economic independence, political enfranchisement, social parity, or even literacy.
GENE: I’m trying to parse that last response of yours. I am trying to ﬁgure out how you veered from point A to point B. GINA: See, a woman would have no trouble with this. It is not veering, it is dancing. Men hate to dance. This is the difference between the male and female senses of humor.

There are sometimes footnotes.

They involve language, character depth, subject matter, even titles. No woman would ever write a book called Around the World in Eighty Days. No woman wants to go around the world in eighty days. Do you know how much packing and unpacking you would have to do? You want to stop, go shopping, sample the food. Many years ago at Dartmouth, a female professor was teaching Erica Jong’s Fear of Flying.
