“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

Podcast for BLM #MeToo and everything!

 Please do check out my new Patreon page. I've made five podcast episodes since the US election--which is of course still terrifyingly in process. I just can't hold back anymore. 

There's a piece about me for the New Yorker that hasn't come out. There's plans for another series of my BBC show, which will require so much effort to get approved again. There's a Newsnight interview with me that will never see the light of day. And I'm getting desperate to share my ideas without having to wait. There's no time. 

And since the BBC just will not see what they're doing, in their new lite magazine format, putting fascists and fascist notions on air all the time, in a both-sides format that allows its consumers to contemplate fascism front and center...

Since they've been doing that since Trump was elected, actually since Brexit, which is the same thing...I've decided to boycott them. I'm done. 

Patreon requires a subscription. It's a sliding scale so you can pay as little as $1 a month. I'm donating all the proceeds to the NAACP legal defense fund. 

Look it up if you don't know what that is. After George Floyd was murdered, Trevor Noah, who comes from Soweto and is awesome (look him up too if you don't know, The Daily Show) suggested that we donate to it. 

Black Lives Matter and #MeToo are planet scale collective action to create a future that will also be able to accommodate nonhuman beings in a nonviolent; way. I mean it. America exports a lot of shit, but we also export this.
