Sociology http://publicradiotulsa.org en "This Place, These People: Life and Shadow on the Great Plains" http://publicradiotulsa.org/post/place-these-people-life-and-shadow-great-plains <p>Farming, as a way of life, has of course been on the decline in this country for a long time now --- and one way in which we can actually see this dwindling livelihood is by noting the disappearing or decaying farm structures throughout America's rural landscape: the houses, barns, and out-buildings that made such a landscape habitable in the first place. Our guest is a photographer whose work tells the stories of these once-loved-but-now-abandoned buildings. Nancy Warner joins us by phone; she's a fine-art and portrait photographer based in San Francisco.

How will this complexity ultimately affect society? What happens when life becomes literally <em>too complicated</em> for human beings? On this encore edition of ST, we listen back to an interesting discussion with an expert on these matters.

What should we make of law-makers --- based in Washington, DC, or elsewhere --- who debate nuclear policy when they've never taken a class in physics? What happens when people everywhere become more and more reliant on technology even as they understand less and less of it?
