Just finished re-reading Invisible Man, by Ralph Ellison, the penultimate anti-rupture argument. In it the Brotherhood works to ignite a rupture, in this case a race riot, hoping to spark revolution. It does not work out so well. Echoing many of the sentiments of those who respond to my rupture essay. I've been reading lots of crazy-ass fiction lately but Invisible Man takes it to a new level. Some of the surreal, nightmare scenes just left me stunned and I'm sure I'm mising half the mythology and…

1000 1000 PLATEAUS :: 7H3 4R7 0F M4NL1N355 :: Shotgun! "It's a coming of age song," says Curt. "Getting out of the house, realizing that I wasn't going to be able to accept whatever the status quo was going to be, that I was going to have to be satisfied with whatever level of existence that I had achieved. It's probably the most truthful song I've ever written."   "Plateau" by Curt Kirkwood; Meat Puppets II (1984) Many a hand has scaled the grand old face of the plateau Some belong to…

Once upon a time in the Confederacy, a benevolent slave owner named Orrin noticed some of his property acting...restless. When I say benevolent I mean he recognized that a well-fed slave, one with decent housing and a mattress would be more productive. So Orrin went the extra mile to provide certain amenities, certainly more than his neighbor the Cruel Slave Master, who had a different business philosophy. This Cruel man starved his chattel and then whipped them to extract as much labor as possible…

Andreas Malm uses the term "induced implosion" and quotes Benjamin 'The destructive character has the consciousness of historical man, whose deepest emotion is an insuperable mistrust of the course of things and a readiness at all times to recognize that everything can go wrong...What exists he reduces to rubble- not for the sake of the rubble but for that of the way leading through it....It is Nature that dictates his tempo, indirectly at least, for he must forestall her. Otherwise she will take…

:: American Names by S. V. Benét* :: Ballads and Poems, 1915–1930 ::  I have fallen in love with American names,The sharp names that never get fat,The snakeskin-titles of mining-claims,The plumed war-bonnet of Medicine Hat,Tucson and Deadwood and Lost Mule Flat. Seine and Piave are silver spoons,But the spoonbowl-metal is thin and worn,There are English counties like hunting-tunesPlayed on the keys of a postboy's horn,But I will remember where I was born. I will remember Carquinez…

when considering the question of how we "should" move forward as a species or global society.. we're faced with a host of dilemmas, maybe more difficult than ever.. given the current population, ongoing ecological damage including climate change, and massive disparity of wealth, resources, and technology between regions around the globe. we're also faced with differences in ideological beliefs and varying degrees of understanding and knowledge of what any of that means to any particular individual..…
