Design​ ​is​ ​a​ ​bastard​ ​practice,​ ​it​ ​is​ ​fundamentally​ ​detached​ ​from​ ​its​ ​own​ ​inherited​ ​ethos​ ​so as​ ​to​ ​appear​ ​progressive,​ ​virtuous​ ​and​ ​fashionable.​ ​Such​ ​abstinence​ ​from​ ​knowledge and​ ​past​ ​experience​ ​models​ ​a​ ​practice​ ​that​ ​advocates​ ​competition​ ​over​ ​communion​ ​–​ ​a renunciation​ ​of​ ​experience​ ​and​ ​sanction​ ​of​ ​illusory​ ​solutionism.​
