Tools of Encouragement by Erlend Peder Kvam / 32 page paperback published in 2023 by Nieves (Switzerland), color offset printing / ISBN 9783907179574
Humans have created many tools in order to make life better and more organized, such as languages, nation states and a lot of different objects. But who ever asked about their opinion? Eventually, everything that the creators have created – everything that they have imposed their own agenda on, has come to create a language of their own.
