Anyone read Power: A Radical View by Steven Lukes? I’m quick reading it. One point stood out, which now seems so obvious, but never occurred to me before: Power is at its most effective when it is invisible. A good case in point is the power of speciesism–the ideology by which humans exert power over other species. Speciesism isn’t discussed by Lukes but I’m enjoying exploring his book nonetheless.

Parties for animals around the world call ⤵️ on the University of Barcelona to stop the planned killing of 38 beagle #dogs next week & for them to be handed over for adoption instead.
The lives of these animals matter.

We visited The National Trust’s Kingston Lacy today for the first time. A beautiful house with an intriguing history. We look forward to a return visit in August when we’re next in Dorset and the weather hopefully warmer to see the gardens.
This is Chisel Beach. Much like the beach at Hastings. But bigger.
