Monocultures of the Mind

I am increasingly sensing that the primary threat to nature and people today comes from centralising and monopolising power and control which inevitably generates one-dimensional structures and what I have called “Monoculture of the Mind”. The monoculture of the mind treats all diversity as disease, and creates coercive structures to model this biologically and culturally diverse world of ours on the privileged categories and concepts of one class, one race and one gender of a single species.

Hello there 🙂 My name is InĂȘs, I’m 29 years old, and I live in Lisbon, Portugal. I created this blog in November 2014, just for fun, because I love cooking and want to take it a little bit more seriously. I never write down what I cook and so I keep forgetting delicious combinations! I also love to read, so I might sometimes write some ideas on what I’m reading. The same thing goes for films. I also created a category for photography because I love it more and more and would like to share some of my photos and maybe get some feedback. I hope you enjoy!
