How does the shown object point to a better world?
The wide, uninterrupted horizon of the big Texas sky evokes limitless possibilities of a socially and legally unbounded society and world.
This is how I imagine a better world:
A socially and legally unbounded society and world are ones that are
unconstrained by and freed of
boundaries, restrictions, discrimination, inequality, oppression, death, and murder
put in place by social constructions of
biological sex and indeterminate sex,
disability, and other physical and mental characteristics
— all naturally occurring human distinctions, except gender –
in the service of holding in place and controlling
darker- (or lighter-) skinned people,
women and girls,
those who are disabled,
and those who have other physical and mental markers
for the benefit of those who use economic and political power, sometimes channeled through manipulation of religion and other social institutions,
to grow their power
by bending it through social constructions that block and deny opportunity and access to resources
in order to diminish the power of individuals and groups
by making them invisible,
criminals and law breakers,
through these constructions,
by undermining and destroying their dignity, integrity, and humanity through rendering them the Other.
“The sky’s the limit!” (translate to read, “There are no limits”) in the utopia of We, we human beings together.
