“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

The Last Night

...and speaking of Campagna, if you haven't read this, then you might want to, a lot. It's so lucidly written, and it shares a lot with some of my more recent thoughts. If you look you'll see that there is a new, really well done way of writing left prose. I was blown away by Bifo's new book (pun not intended, oops).

Nice Book, I'm really enjoying it. Raises the question about how politics seems to be limited to replacing a Whole with a different Whole. Any politics that aims for something less than a new Whole is critiqued for not doing so. Incomplete. But what about this idea of putting together a new set up of Parts that don't add up to a Whole? Causing parts to veer in a slightly different direction. Misreading the labels on parts on purpose.

There's some kind of connection here to Eileen Joy's Let Us Now Stand Up for Bastards
