Mutation

Museum of Natural History (Pixabay)

"New York is a mutation masquerading as a modernization. What is presented as modern is actually, in many respects, deeply archaic, but we are conditioned by our nineteenth-century intellectual heritage to think that  whatever comes later must be better adapted, more fit, more highly evolved than what it replaces. It's here, therefore it must be fit."
Robert Fitch, The Assassination of New York
