Indeed. It may be as German Philosopher Peter Sloterdijk argued in the third volume in his trilogy Bubbles, that we don't want NO walls around us.We all have spaces around us, such as the space we live in, or the office we go to. What we want are personalised walls, where we can project our own mini phantasies, as we live these in closer proximity to each other in a global space. So we should do the opposite then and build personalised walls. A completely different project then!
