“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Future Christ

I can tell already that Future Christ, aided and abetted by Anthony Paul Smith's great translation and introduction, is going to be very important for Buddhaphobia. Laruelle (he of non-philosophy) begins his examination of religion and violence not with the destruction of peoples (genocides such as the Shoah), but with the destruction of heretics and heresy. This is precisely how Buddhaphobia is going to work. You can almost map our arguments in this regard onto one another. I'm quite excited about that.
