hi tully thanks, you are a sound, kind and kindred spirit, I noticed people are thinking in my direction and straining the grey whirly folds to get heads around a watertight bleu print like organic money emissions from the bottom up, etc. (tully and respondees notably). Broad base orientations are well, good and needed to try combat specialistic divide and rule trends but as we who try get more and more numerous, resource bundling, credit and opportunity base systemicizing lags while we overlap more and more, insulatedly rather than the aimed for cumulatively. Prestige may, I think correctly be interpreted as acknowledgement in return for the stimulation of metabolism. There seems to be confusion and shortsightedness about life spans; understandably so since making ends meet is harder when these are shorter; try finding fire wood in the desert or pump oil without an army to back you up and leave you with a vanishing fraction of it......

From "Conversations with God," Book 3, by Neale Donald Walsch, pages 40-48 (not complete, snipped for brevity) >In an earlier part of your history, you lived on this planet in a matriarchal society. Then there was a shift, and the patriarchy emerged. When you made that shift, you moved away from expressing your emotions. You labeled it "weak" to do so. It was during this period that males also invented the devil, and the masculine God. Satan was essentially a male invention. Ultimately, all of society went along with it, but the turning away from emotions, and the invention of an "Evil One," was all part of a male rebellion against the matriarchy, a period during which women ruled over everything from their emotions. They held all governmental posts, all religious positions of power, all places of influence in commerce, science, academia, healing. Men had to justify their existence, for they had very little importance beyond their ability to fertilize female eggs and move heavy objects. They were very much like worker ants and bees. They did the heavy physica.......snip........... the source of all fear. The smile of the amused Goddess, experiencing limitless love and gently submitting to the laws of nature, was replaced by the stern countenance of the not-so-amused God, proclaiming power over the laws of nature, and forevermore limiting love. This is the God you worship today, and that's how you got where you are now. I can't do much with this dry, abstract text, though I understand and appreciate the need/drive/motivation to write it. I much prefer Wrangham's "Demonic males" when it comes to showing shifts in power; one of the points made in the last mentioned book is that the feeding grounds of the Bonobo aren't grazed by Gorilla's leaving them enough succulent herbs to obviate the need for roaming (and) larger territories which puts fit males at an advantage over females 'burdened' with offspring. The perpetual gender mix is conducive to love rather than war. A largely abstract take on the problem comes from a book I read recently. Allow me to cite, comment and add some excerpts but first I would like to dedicate this to all westerners who feel it their duty/task/browny point opportunity/mission to go and 'bless' natives with 'superior' whitey science and substance. Excerpts from "The rules are no game, the strategy of communication" with: "women in production: the chorus line"; and introduced by "the naming of parts and the 20th century war", written, written by Anthony Wilden, 1987, Routledge and Kegan; I posted it in my file: /dualities_and_gender.htm
This must have been a Matt post http://www.akha.org: I am working intensely in a region being over run by American Evangelical dominated missionaries. The missionaries come in all kinds. Some simply need a good swift kick up side the head to get their ears to work. But others come who simply have no idea as to the effect of what they are doing. They can sit there and teach all the children that their culture is bad, their parents as well basically, and to get rid of it all and help them sort of buy the village and build a big church for Jesus while half the people are starving. But when you ask them if they understand what they are doing they don't have a clue. Some of it comes with Mission School indoctrination. Some of it is extreme naivity. But when you ask yourself "what am I going to do with this problem, how am I going to constructively approach this person" one has to realize that in many cases they just don't know. No one has ever presented to them anything other than the theories they got raised with. I saw a national geographic program about a native South american tribe that killed all missionaries even they had the blockheaded audacity to try again. An australian with an all inclusive, cosmic, I would go so far as to say 'rainbow' perspective was left in peace there and allowed to stand and live with them. Very moving program, don't know the name (one of the geezers wrote back he thought I must have been watching fantasy Island).

There are mindsets and economic systems of genocide. ************ eZ: the first statement has been addressed as to its irrelevance to the discusssion. the latter, well, it's meaningless to strip "mindsets" and "economic systems of genocide" from the context of white supremacy and european/amerikkkan imperialist expansion. mindsets and economic systems in and of themselves are not credible explanations of the carnage. dave needs to set his plow a little deeper here and examine how the various components/aspects of european derivative cultures have worked together to sustain a globally dominant cultural imperialism that is unrivaled in human history. ************** Personally IMO this projection of a racist eurocentric construct is amazing in a forum such as this, especially in people that should be better educated as to historical COINTELPRO divisional tactics. DBowden AIM Supporter *************** eZ: it is amazing that dave confuses the government's blood quantum shenanigans with an intentionally political analysis of european derived cultural thought and behavior. it is dave's "choice" to remain underinformed. whether he agrees with the analysis presented or not, he, like me, is obligated to at least comprehend the analyses that run counter to his own. what good is it to call oneself an "AIM supporter" (which AIM?) if one has not taken the time to learn about an emerging way of thinking and organizing that is about ending the acification of our people by white folks who are unwilling to go further than their activist credentials, and their vestedness in those credentials, will allow them to go. ************** Any human being that lives in a place that calls for them to defend their rational for being is wasting their time being there. ************** eZ: the burden here is on dave to prove that anyone here has suggested or said directly that white folks have no right to *be*. it was Mattie McDaniel who was "feeling" that way about what he was being challenged about....it was the Ture who asked if poor Mattie was supposed to kill himself? those are facts. *************** The internet is an illusionary place full of faceless individuals. DBowden, AIM Supporter *************** eZ: the internet is very real in terms of its use as a political tool. it can be used to harm or help. it is an excellent tool for challenging white privilege and for finding ways for it to expose itself, as more than a few folks have done on this list. dave should make no mistake that the damage Microsoft has done with its Encarta, internet based representation of Afrikan history is very real. And, if they haven't done it yet to native people, they will. the internet is very real. a few weeks ago the League of Indigenous Sovereign Nations used the Internet to provide timely input into UN deliberations in a matter of seconds. the action alerts that are put out via this listserv and many others have increased the resistance to government sanctioned corporate abuse of native people. Recently, an online workshop focused on challenging white supremacy involving activists from all parts of the world concluded after 1 year of intensive discussion of the central question: "what does it mean to be white?" now people are meeting face to face, empowered by the *discipline* this medium required of its participants. White folks in the workshop came around, by and large, to the realization of the many number of ways they were trying "to help" from a very, very low state of denial about the impact their whiteness was having on *antiracist organizing*. They were held accountable for the entire year, not being allowed to *backslide* with their usual "yeah, but..." commentary (because behind every "but" you know their is ca-ca!) , or their pacifying rhetorical ethics of misappropriating great truths (that we are all one) to suit their own ends of not having to *question themselves* and be accountable are how they are benefitting from their race privilege. some wanted to do what Martha Ture did, (remember, shout "go die" and pout), but they couldn't because they had made a committment to listen, learn, and find ways to have relationships with people of color that did not colonize us. Ish and few others have been putting messages out about how everyone has the right to "be themselves". yes. that is true. no one is arguing against that. but how can the lot of us make the claim that we *are* being ourselves if we have left the impacts of white supremacy on our humanity unexamined? how can an Indian person or any person of color honestly say that if their white friends, lovers, and offspring have not taken the time to examine how white supremacy informs every aspect of people behavior in the US (where i live), how can they claim they are being themselves? and if we choose to say "it doesn't exist" how do they know for sure? how can a white man or white woman, who is seventeen to 20 generations removed from any indigenous heritage and has been immersed in white euroamerikkkan culture all of their life, make the claim that they are being themselves. banging a drum or wearing hair in dreadlocks or supporting "AIM" doesn't make it so. Ish: on two continents..both have had ancestors hazed like buffalo from their homelands, forced to endure the degradation of objectification, interred by the conquerors and exterminated at the whim of the invaders....Get it? **************** eZ: with one key difference.....can one example be named where indian people migrated to another continent and participated in the carnage (homesteading, mining, slavery, slave "trading", the southern states' Confederacy, etc....) against an oppressed people, and then strived for positions of power and privilege, based on the redistribution of lands and natural resources of those same people, while a national policy of extermination was carried out? Perhaps we could ask some palestinian folks the same question.
Heartfield's Myths ((source: http://csf.colorado.edu/pen-l/jan98/0106.html)) Messages sorted by: [ date ][ thread ][ subject ][ author ] Mon, 05 Jan 1998 09:35:10 -0500 Louis Proyect (email@example.com): James wrote: The first was wholly reactionary: the plantation system, which as Marx explains in 'The American Civil War', was driven to expand extensively because, depending on slave labour, it was incapable of intensive devlopment. Yields could only be increased by taking more land under cultivation. This led to further expansion and a political debate over the legal status of slavery in the new territories. This is the first pseudo-fact in the whole rant, and it is completely wrong. The slave-plantation system was not only integrated into the world circuits of proto-capitalism and then early industrial capitalism, it was at the heart of so-called 'primitive accumulation'. There is a wealth of research by now which shows that slavery was not some subordinate mode of production but was often the best-organised most highly-capitalised branch of capitalism. From the 17th ce the New World was increasingly at the heart, not just of European capitalism, but of the world system as a whole; a mechanism, primarily thru silver exports, of incorporating Asia into the nascent world capitalist system. Heartfield might care to read Robin Blackburn's latest tome on the subject, but in any case I am sure that Jim Blaut will provide the necessary correctives to Heartfield's misinformed views. Heartfield: But the second dynamic West, principally in the North West, was far from being reactionary or indeed capitalistically inspired. Indeed the settlers in the North West who were driving the frontier on, were immigrants from Europe who were fleeing reaction in Europe, as well as the power of the capitalist class on the Eastern seaboard. This is just as silly. Where on earth did these immigrants come from? From what were they fleeing? At this time, before 1850, they were primarily English, Scottish or north European, and the Irish were beginning to arrive. Why? Ever hear of the Enclosure Movement, the Highland Clearances, the potato Famine, James? Do you suspect these events were in some way connected to the rise of industrial capitalism? Even before that, emigration from Europe was driven by the market forces of proto-capitalism and the growth of the reserve army of labour. These settlers were independent farmers who had gone West to avoid the monopoly power of the Eastern elite. Read: they were driven west thru a porous frontier to avoid being proletarianised. This is progressive in the same way that everything in capitalism is progressive according to Heartfield: the truth is that large numbers of people were being hounded from one end of the world to the other, and forced to commit atrocities against each other, in the service of and at the mercy of gigantic unfolding forces of world capitalism. There is something Orwellian about Heartfield's inversions. > When the US government ceded territories to Indian tribes in the many broken treaties, it was not a sop to those native Americans, it was a deliberate attempt to frustrate the Eastward expansion and its populist influence on US politics.> Yes, the Eastern patricians wanted to depress the value of labour-power and had 2 ways to do it: close the frontier in the east or close the frontier in the west, which is what they did in the end. Ground up in the class struggle between proletarians and capitalists in the East, the Indian Nations were faced with one future only: annihilation, either by new incomers AGAINST their easternm masters, or by incomers AT THE BEHEST of eastern capital once it became clear that there were more profits possible from opening the forntier than closing it. It is a pity that Louis Godena gives aid and comfort to this kind of miserable posturing. What Heartfield wants to say but is still afraid to openly pronounce, is that winning the West was a good thing and so was the way it was won. In fact, the emptying of the America of their original inhabitants and the crazed and homicidal way this was consummated, a terrifying orgy of rapine and murder which Hollywood celebrates and so does Heartfield, are historical crimes big enough by thermselves to redress the scales of judgment, if there are those who still think that capitalism is 'on balance', 'on the whole' a progressive episode in human history.

comment on:...... lumping people into faceless categories: we forget that we are dealing with people who have reasons for believing the things they do, whether it is family upbringing, the influence of religion or state propaganda, or just growing up in this damn culture. So? Shows we know where they belong which is respect right?

on hurt feelings: Proximity comes in 2 flavors: one repels, the other attracts. Hurt feelings result from unheeded hints about imposition and crowding on the one hand and unanswered invitations on the other. A tip of an iceberg bobbing in a swell of souped up chemistry full of loops feedback, clutter, distractions, assaults, insurrection, invasions, static and quiet extasy. Hurt feelings can be evoked by unexpressed insensitivity and incapacity, allowing expectations of toned training and well attuned exercise of discretion stroking with one's own set of values even and especially when instrumentarium, gauging standard, sense development and a host of other culturally embedded routines obviously just don't mesh. Every mystery blooms on a pile of old shit. But the biggest amount of civilization fostering soil isn't so (self)refreshing anymore. Aversion to its abuse set me off travelling but I'm back trailing the worst of the US behind me it seems and that's embarrasing. A bad easy ample aghen. Dad warned me not to marry out of blood, league, class or even county but my eclectic gregariousness shaped by 60s and 70s Dutch television flavors made me a social and/or asocial freak, an infertile hybrid (got 2 kids one in the US, never get to see 'm though, that's how bad it got to be with me though I can't believe it's that bad to be with me), unique. An eye in the universal normstorm; a cliff in the sea of sentiments; good placement offor windmilling opportearnity. Taking people on dizzying rides when tackle-clamped (onto <squared>) the wrong way.

This is ultimately the meaning and wisdom of babylon, bioregion and dialect formation: avoid static and distortion by an observance of proper scale; of course megalomarxists and all permutations thereof think they have the glitches taken out of those objections to global harmonization but who wants to sit in front of loudspeaker to attend a jamsession with participants from all satellite and/or cable-enchaintrained corners of the globe, no matter how well delaycorrected it will never beat the real thing while doing the right thing and that's paying attention to the little things: puttering around one's (b)eat.

to tully: Wow, I love you Tully, may our affinities never cease nor stop to astonish and multiply; I certainly think all of the following bears repeating: problem with the city (well, second to its ugliness and blight) is the total dependence on the Corporations that is required if you live there. Yes, you can grow tomatoes in pots on the apartment roof, but you simply cannot provide for the majority of your needs yourself there unless you beg or rummage the dumpsters. That is not a way I would care to live. me: I would say there is a task as well as an opportunity there; the metropoli are so disgustingly wasteful, yet all refugees have a preference for them. In Holland asylum seeking is discouraged by compounding the poor souls for such lenghts of time that they will send enough distress back home to stem the flow; recycling could be their window of opportunity. I just recently found 1 year old hard wood windows, huge ones, in a dumpster, never buy clothes here; perfectly usable ones on the street every week, etc. As an activist, it seems that one can be spread too thin and must do some sort of specialization if you are to focus. You can see it everywhere on the web. I went looking for some sort of "catch all" type activism group and was quite surprised when I found none. Each has its focus, that perhaps by necessity is a limited piece of the "problem pie." To limit activism to protest is too shallow an approach and may even be counterproductive, especially when guilt is assigned as it invariably is when specific outrages are dealt with.
