We Are All On Flight 93 By Derek Joe Tennant

We are prisoners, trapped in a dominant, racist culture. We don’t know that outside life is different: loving, cooperative, with enough for everyone. Remaining within this culture, we are less... More > than whole ourselves. It’s a lie that model prisoners escape. Note: everything you have done to save the world has failed. Meanwhile every 28 hours another black man is gunned down by *authorities*. We talk about gun control but don’t teach conflict resolution, take guns away from police, or solve problems of race and class. Just *recycling* or driving an electric car is not enough. It is hard, actively seeking ways to monkey wrench us into collapse while we still have life, resources, and energy to rebuild with. It is critical that we address our spiritual life. What if every moment were a meditation, every act a blessing? I know what it feels like to give up my struggle and acknowledge that someone I dearly love has died, and that I failed to save them. I will not give up again.< Less

Unfuck Our Future By Derek Joe Tennant

What we need now is a fundamental rethinking of economics in general, and capitalism in particular. Despite the economic crisis of 2008, and the specter of even-greater collapse impending, we hold... More > assumptions that ensure dysfunction. Deep questions that bear scrutiny include, “What role should markets play in family life, in social programs, in how we provide health care and education? What are the limits to growth, and can this system function during any prolonged contraction? How do we value (and therefore price under the capitalist model) freedom, democracy, or love?” As we lose sight of intrinsic value, we struggle to value life itself. In a world comprised mostly of gasoline-powered vehicles and poor mass transit, we find it unimaginable that we might construct a way of living that doesn’t require us to travel farther than we can walk. We discuss the impending extinction of Mankind, but cannot mention the end of capitalism. What would it look like, to change this state of mind?< Less
