“Good intentions” which will get skewed on their way to full blossoming, as all ideological utopian straight roads to bloody happiness usually are, in order to guarantee, in the end, once again, their own successful catastrophic and shining failure.
I love walking and bicycling, though, and some other things you’ll get from that, whether you like it or not. You’ll see.
And I also must tell you from the start that I agree with Theodor “Ted” Kaczynski who opens his 1995 Manifesto (you’ll find it here) with the following : “The Industrial Revolution and its consequences have been a disaster for the human race.”
To me, one of the most recent aspect of that “evolving disaster” is Agenda 21 (1992) itself. How do we get rid of an “evolving disaster” (and the society we live in is an “evolving disaster”, no doubt), when the “solutions” are born from it? We won’t get rid of the “evolving disaster” Kaczynski evoked and described in his 1995 Manifesto. At best, we will just manage the failure — with results ranging from quite good to unbearable. In that sense, Agenda 21 is unavoidable.
Meanwhile, while disaster managers are managing disasters, one can ask oneself much more fundamental questions, like this one, for instance: “Why is there something instead of nothing?”
I was an active hunter-gatherer thousands and thousands of years ago when it first popped up in my mind. And answers came, little by little (the fact is the dividing line between a question and a prayer is quite thin) .. But the disastrous system we live in tossed away that question a long time ago — and apparently, that question (or that prayer?) is not part of Agenda 21, which means Agenda 21 is not essentially “different” from the disastrous system we live in : it prolongs it’s metaphysical misery, poverty, indeed emptiness, by simply trying to “stabilize” or “coagulate” the whole thing in its final form.
Those notes from my Carnet de Notes are really just that : notes. Zigzaging notes jotted down on the chaotic road to an other evolving totalitarian disaster. There’s a video on Agenda 21 at the end of the post. But the internet is filled with articles and videos on the subject, anyway.
That being said, let’s zigzag further, just musing (before getting back to Agenda 21, a little further down): What about open range and free grazing? You’ve probably watched some western movies? Is Open Range a “communist movie”? With corporate-capitalistc paid, masked, anti-“communist” terrorists (the “bad guys”) threatening common law cowboys (the “go0d guys”) en route from Montana to deliver cattle (probably in Abilene, Kansas)?.. “Open range”, “free grazing”… Continue reading
