Whenever everyday people start asking themselves the question… – “Wait a minute, if people of yesteryear did all sorts of things we find barbaric, from keeping slaves to public flogging, what might future civilizations be equally appalled by in our age?” … they almost inevitably come up with some version of: “Well, it’s probably something about how we treat non-human animals”. It probably is. In the article below Hanzi Freinacht explains why the current Animal Rights movement is failing, and why we need a new updated, metamodern, Animal Rights movement. https://medium.com/@hanzifreinacht/the-four-pillars-of-metamodern-animal-rights-aka-how-to-prevent-133-holocausts-3ff5fcba366cThe Four Pillars of Metamodern Animal Rights aka.

Can ecology be used for degrowth? “Now, appealing as this sounds, it should be pointed out that ecology—as a science—is a considerably harsher one than economics. The word sounds nicer, but a quick comparison of textbooks of the subjects reveal that while, yes, economics focuses significantly on competition, ecology does so to a yet greater extent, and also callously studies bifurcation diagrams of populations (which is a nice way of saying, when most die off in a horrible collapse, before they grow back, and repeat), and it also features words like predators and parasites, which are hardly mentioned in economics. …

“When people are networking, they’re often on the lookout for people to collaborate with—or, more specifically, they’re looking for people to recruit for this brilliant once-in-a-century project of theirs. The only problem: so is everyone else. As a newcomer, you’ll quickly discover that everyone has a project—a project they for mysterious reasons think to be just as much the center of the universe as your own. As such, when people are networking, the polite thing is, of course, to hear the other person out and learn about their project and do a lot of nodding. Oftentimes though, the problem is …

“In their first-ever conversation on the topic together, Daniel Görtz and Nora Bateson join me to talk about stage theory. Since Nora’s social media post declaring developmental stage theories “BS” and “colonial as hell,” the value and legitimacy of stage models has been a fervent topic of debate within the liminal web. In this conversation, Daniel and Nora are given space to more completely express their opinions on the topic before engaging with one another directly in discussion/debate in an attempt to gain a deeper appreciation and integration of one another’s views. A long-anticipated interaction, and, by the sound of …

“The argument I wish to make in the following is not that civil wars and violent crime lead to higher political order. But, if violence in society is successfully contained, its energies channeled into discourse, it is the very differences of people’s interests, ideologies, and perspectives that push new forms of political reality into being. So, what we have increasingly come to discuss as the “polarization” of society and its political landscape is not only a bad thing. Yes, it’s a bad thing when a zombie hoard of Proud Boys bloodthirstily shuffle through The Capitol bellowing Nancy Pelosi’s name. But …

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qM_71pPO3Ao A pretty good conversation on different strands of metamodernism — 3 different theorists (Greg Dember, Lene Andersen, and Daniel Gortz) interviewed by Jonathan Rowson. Originally meant for Rebel Wisdom but published on Perspectiva. My wifi went down so I recorded on the phone, hence weird picture and sound on my side. Anyways, thanks everyone who participated!

“Consider the following critiques of our growing tendency to long for the indigenous: – There is always a risk of “appropriating” the indigenous cultures, meaning that the unique identities and expressions of these become part of our larger, commercialized systems, which in turn can harm the self-distinction and dignity of minorities. – If tribal cultures are fetishized, large swathes of majority populations will “want something” from them, and this something may not even be there to begin with. This can be excruciating and frustrating. – Our longing for the indigenous can often be expressed as “token” representation, either through musical …

– Greater collective intelligence will tend towards fewer people more deeply involved in more multi-perspectival and disinterested (because we select also neutral representatives) processes of deliberation in councils, with a greater emphasis on the quality of the communicative process. The development of new systems of governance are evaluated on the basis of collective intelligence, not “democracy” in and of itself. – Such councils will in turn create an increasingly complex meshwork of cross-influence, hence converging on a deeper and deeper coherence, without there being one central authority that forces them in line. – And such councils will be committed to …

“The somewhat gruesome public spectacle of the ongoing Johnny Depp and Amber Heard trial is only a case in point—whatever it is we’re watching, it is hardly a rationally organized process of finding the best solutions for healing of relationships, the restoration of personal dignity, and guidance towards desirable future behaviors. If we take these goals (relational healing, protected personal dignity, and behavior change in pro-social directions) as being the “rationally desired” outcomes of our judicial processes, it is difficult to see why the current consensus of criminal justice would be the best possible one. Whereas our legal systems do, …
