    Blame on you, Mankind...


    “But if we’re no good at cleaning up the shit we’ve sowed, if we’re incapable of taking the long view, there’s one thing we absolutely kick ass at. Can you hear it? Can you hear Rush Limbaugh spluttering that the Sierra Club should pay for the cleanup, because it was those idiot environazis that forced drilling off the land in the first place? Can you see Sarah Palin’s Trig-worthy attempts at revisionism as she tries to claim that “Drill Baby Drill” actually meant only-on-land-and-never-in-the-water-NOW-do-those-crazy-greenies-get it? Did you see Halliburton and BP and Transocean falling all over themselves trying to blame each other for the mess?

    That’s what we rock at. That’s where we leave every other species in the dust: the laying of blame. And with the laying of blame comes the passion for payback…

    And the rest of us — those who kow-tow, and back down, and do what we’re told because we know what happens to us if we don’t — we’ll feel good too, when CNN shows us the footage of Tony Hayward’s children being carted off the stage in body bags.

    That is the one positive result this unimaginable catastrophe might yield, when all is said and done. It might at least make us feel good.

    I’ll take what I can get.” – Peter Watts

    Any genuine revolutionary impulse in our present era must be directed at the system that we have created in opposition to life itself, not at its government. This is why there can be no revolution from within that system. We have no where to stand, no position from which we may take aim. We are corrupted when we eat, we are corrupted when we work, we are corrupted when we make love, we are corrupted by the very act of living within this system. We, as a people, live from a system of unlife.

    Worth a read - Rushkoff on BP: Too Big to Fail? The BP Bailout as Corporatism http://bit.ly/9D661p



    Deft. Germane. Sharing it.

    I did read Rushkoff's "Life Inc." after "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" - a beautiful contrast. Like future after past.

    Then I moved on to refreshing reasoning why Douglas Rushkoff is closer to workable soutions than Robert Kiyosaki.

    "Spontaneous Evolution" by Bruce H. Lipton and Steve Bhaerman.
