10. Why Trails are Political

#lesson3 #interpretation

On politics generally speaking. In German, we have the word "Deutungshoheit".
It’s a very nice word! "Hoheit" is power and sovereignty. And "Deutung" is interpretation. A trail is an interpretation of a territory. And that poses the question of who is authorized, who has the power, to interpret.
All interpretations of territories are questions of power, and in that sense what we’re doing is very political.
