Richard Heinberg: To advocate for human rights, peace & social justice and ignore their necessary ecological resource basis is dishonest and self-defeating.
To think that we can advocate for human rights, peace, and social justice while ignoring their necessary ecological basis—is both intellectually dishonest and ultimately self-defeating. – Resilience/Energy Bulletin: Population, Resources and Human Idealism. [SQ Copy]
Paul Kingsnorth: Toilet of Industrial Civilization.
The modern flush toilet is a good metaphor for the civilization we are living in. You crap into a pipe, you push a button and flush all your waste away, it disappears and you never see it, and somebody else deals with it somewhere; and you never have to deal with your own shit; and then you end up deep in it. – Paul Kingsnorth.
The modern toilet, the flush toilet is a good metaphor for the civilization we are living in. You crap into a pipe, you flush it away and you never see it, and you never have to deal with your own shit; and then you end up deep in it. But I just think its the notion that you just press a button and all of your waste disappears and somebody else deals with it somewhere and its probably going to be okay; is exactly how we grow up and live our lives like that. – VPRO: The battle against climate change by Paul Kingsnorth.
