The reality of and the outward toll inflicted by greenhouse gas engendered Climate Change is clearly evident (to all but the corrupt and devoutly ignorant) e.g. increasingly destructive and deadly tornadoes and hurricanes, destruction of marine life, severe droughts and rapacious wild fires—landscapes of death, scattered debris and shattered lives.

Darwin observed that conscience is what most distinguishes humans from other animals. If so, grief isn’t far behind. Realms of anguish are deeply personal — yet prone to expropriation for public use, especially in this era of media hyper-spin. Narratives often thresh personal sorrow into political hay. More than ever, with grief marketed as a [...]

Uno de los más odiosos -y recurrentes- gestos que el burocratismo obsequia a los pueblos, es el del “látigo de la indiferencia”. Se trata de una “indiferencia” especial, combinada, oportunista y adaptable según se trate de épocas electorales o de lapsos de gestión“pura y dura”. Es una “indiferencia”, refinada y astuta, esmerilada con [...]

Why Elections Are Not a Waste of Progressives’ Time
Internacionales

Viernes, 17 de septiembre del 2010

A pithy idea -- now going around in some progressive circles -- is that elections are a waste of time. The idea can be catchy. It all depends on some tacit assumptions. For instance: elections are a waste of time if you figure the U.S. government is so far gone that it can't get much worse. Elections are a waste of time if you've given up on grassroots organizing to sway voters before they cast ballots. Elections are a waste of time if you don't see much value in reducing -- even slightly -- the extent of injustice and deprivation imposed on vulnerable people. Or, if you see the organizing of protests, community groups, unions and the like as "either/or" in relation to working for the election of better candidates. Or, if you think the goal of those who struggled and suffered for the right to vote -- seeing the ballot as an essential component of democracy -- is outdated and rendered moot by present-day frustrations and outrages.

As we devolve into a commodity culture, in which celebrity, power and money reign, the older, dimming values of another era are being replaced. We are becoming objects, consumer products and marketable commodities. We have no intrinsic value. We are obsessed with self-presentation. We must remain youthful. We must achieve notoriety and money or the illusion of it. And it does not matter what we do to get there. Success, as Goldman Sachs illustrates, is its own morality. Other people's humiliation, pain and weakness become the fodder for popular entertainment.

by Chris Hedges October 26, 2009 Violence against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people is wrong. So is violence against people in Afghanistan and Iraq. But in the bizarre culture of identity politics, there are no alliances among the oppressed.
