Context is everything. The responsibility of scholarship is comprehensive inclusivity. The business of politics is too frequently partial or preferred prejudice, narrowness of focus and narrative exclusion. The internet affords us the means now to access reliable and representative accounts of matters that would otherwise enjoy privileged filtration.
A classic example in recent days, that I consider to be essential reading is from Tomdispatch by Alfred W. McCoy
I also strongly recommend James Corbett’s excellent documentary summary
How green can we be? If truth be told, we must be greener than green, so golden that we’re blue. Forests and oceans are the source of all sustainable life. If the Green party can deliver resilience and intelligent transition I’m all for the Greens. The challenge is not to be naive. We must reclaim history and embrace biopolitics.
The fundamental discourse needs to be squarely rooted in the agro-ecological paradigm and the imminent and necessary agrarian renaissance. Until we get this 110% correct there’ll be no future worth speculating about. It’ll be perpetual anarchy and unrestricted barbarism ~ virtually where we are already courtesy of US hegemony and climate disruption.
Soil is everything and land reform the key to sustaining our soils ~ everywhere and always. Then we’ll gain a better grip and begin to understand how to get our fisheries healthy through comprehensive marine ecosystem conservation ~ a truly global priority of extreme urgency.
I don’t want to hear the same old same old, that we all know so well. I want to hear Jill Stein talking enthusiastically about the real shakers and movers, like Lester Brown, Vandana Shiva, Miguel Altieri, Amory Lovins, Bioneers, Janine Benyus, Third World Network, topics like African organics, Barefoot Economics, Permaculture etc etc. The list is very, very long, so this is now an enormous constituency, globally. Blessed Unrest indeed!
Read McCoy’s account, it explains so much….
Depose the tyranny by any means render the demon USURY impotent.
I’m pretty confident that Jill wouldn’t know a “movement” if it bit her in the ankle!
Just curious, are you supporting any candidate for president this year?
