Accepting Collapse and Moving Beyond Hope

Our biosphere is dying and so is all life on Earth. Hope in “a solution” is the drug we use to avoid the truth that it’s too late, that our culture is responsible, and that it will not help us.

I have to admit that I haven’t been fully honest, in a lot of my writing I’ve implied that it’s important to get engaged in community in order to change policy to avoid extinction. The truth is that the time for action has come and gone, greedy people made decisions decades ago to force us down the path of ignoring the problem while we had any chance of solving it.

Be Prepared (2018-03)

I was raised under the motto "Be Prepared", this ethos guides my decision making, I intend to be prepared for each new phase of our collapse, this is my March 2018 self audit.

“The Collapse” sounds like a thing that happens in front of your eyes right? It sounds like an event, a catastrophe that dominates everybody’s attention, like an explosion, or a market crash, or a war. No, it’s not that simple, nothing in this interconnected hypernormalised world will ever be simple. Collapse of our civilization, of this dominant culture, is a continuing and long process, it has no clear beginning and it’s end will only be defined in the history books.

We Have Monetised the End of the World

Destroy Capitalism! There is money in stopping climage change and saving the Earth but there is much more money in making it worse.

Pain Essay

Yeah this culture is killing the planet and I could spend a lot of energy pretending it isn't or I can accept this is reality and do whatever needs to be done.

Getting in Trouble

All my life I've been getting in trouble and been afraid of getting in trouble. I'm not afraid anymore and you can't be either, because we really need your help.

I hadn’t been using my blog because I was afraid to, afraid of what would happen if I wrote about what I was thinking. When I was 18 I used to write about getting tattoos and making money to get tattoos. These days I write about the atrocities committed by the American Empire both locally and globally, I write in protest to a system so corrupted by power that its current course is set on destroying all life as we know it.

Sunday Service - A Seat at the Table

In our current society we give others a seat at the table, and then teach them to concentrate power and dominate their group.

You don’t really seem like a Church person Dirk - Anyone I’ve met. Some who read my post “Do Justice, Love Kindness, Walk Humbly” will recognize that is not my quote, in fact I heard it at service that day and was inspired to come out to the same park I am in now to write about it. Again this Sunday, after attending the Fort Collins Mennonite Fellowship I am feeling inspired to write about service and duty, things that have meant a lot to me my entire life (as a scout), and which I feel a longing for when I am not doing regularly.

Nobody Can Do This Alone

Our survival is the responsibility of everyone, we can make that our governments priorities, but we need to take power back in order to do that.

For me the biggest relief over these years is learning that I’m not solely responsible for saving our species from extinction. The hardest thing to come to terms with is that most of the species is ignorant of the dangers we face, or responsible in their own small way for pushing us closer to the edge. Alone you cannot save us from the impact climate change will have on our ability to produce enough food for our survival.

We Will Be Destroyed, If We Remain Divided

Under the oppression of tyranny we learn helplessness. Under constant division we stand alone. Under threat of violence we do not fight for freedom. Together we can get our fair share. Together we can serve our purpose. Together we can change the future. Stand Together & Together We Stand.

Do Justice, Love Kindness, Walk Humbly

A society founded on the values of justice, kindness, and equality, would be radically different to our dominant capitalist culture.

This society which praises capitalism for its efficiency in driving progress, justifies the destruction of life under the claim it has permission of both the people and God. These justifications are not only unacceptable, they’re also lies. The dominant culture is driven by neither Democratic or Christian values which it pays so much lip service to. Democracy and Christianity are frameworks for creating equality among people, in theory. In practice the dominant forms of Democracy and Christianity have been co-opted by the powerful to serve as tools that concentrate wealth and power to reward themselves and punish everyone else.

The Origins of Money, HipCrime Vocab

the HipCrime Vocab is a source of many in-depth essays analyzing power in our society, where it came from, how it is distributed, and the ways in which the systems enforce control. What’s a hipCrime? Well you committed one when you opened this blog. Keep it up, it’s our only hope! The author just completed an insightful and dense series The Origins of Money, and at ten posts, I have to say I’m relieved that’s it come to an end :p

100 Days

In the American Media you’re hearing a lot right now about Trump’s first 100 days, people are (rightfully so) giving this topic a lot of attention. Understanding what this presidency focuses its attention on in its first days gives us an idea of where the administration is pointing our future. I had personally been thinking about these 100 days a lot lately, and honestly, it was making me extremely depressed, despondant, and anxious.

Noam Chomsky on Trump's First 75 Days

Recently Democracy Now interviewed Noam Chomsky on Trump’s first 75 Days as President, here’s some key points I took away from it. On the alleged interference of the election by Russia, Chomsky points out that America is constantly interfering with world politics and overthrowing governments. If Russia and Trump were to have a more positive relationship this would not be a negative thing at all, especially considering we’re at a really dangerous time.

America, Resist Donald Trump

I will begin to resist by writing more. Trump is proving to be the perfect distraction for the Republican party, he creates outrageous executive orders that consumes the public’s social media feeds. In the meantime the Republican controlled government carry out their systematic destruction of the services that were keeping America from both starting a nuclear war and bringing upon climate change harder and faster than ever.
