“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

There It Is: The Ultra Right Is Still Obsessed with Ecological Politics

 This guy persuaded a poor lad to sail on a boat from Hawaii to the south Pacific where there was less covid, he said. I'm reading about it on CNN. They're lost at sea. 

CNN reproduced some screenshots of his videos, and on the far left you can see "Agenda 21 injections." Injecting people with Agenda 21? Agenda 21 as an injection? 

The covid shot was seen as the mark of the Beast. 

What is Agenda 21? It's section 21 of the Biodiversity document produced in Rio in 1992, the Earth Summit. America didn't sign on, even. All that paragraph says is, nations should cooperate to promote biodiversity. 

The extreme right takes this to mean that a world government of bla bla insert-antisemitic-trope-here will keep the Aryan race from thriving. 

Almost every extreme right organization in the USA has a genealogy that can be traced back to hostility to Agenda 21. 

George I's America didn't sign on to the document--but you see how not signing on actually fueled the ultra right conspiracy theory? That America was going to be overrun/defeated/etc?

If you're interested I cover this in Humankind

There's more than you'll read on CNN. Why did this bastard think of sailing to the Pacific islands? He assumed they wouldn't mandate the covid shot. Why? 

I believe what Derrida liked the most about my first book, Shelley and the Revolution in Taste, was how it discusses the Pacific islanders in the racist imaginary of Europe, how they were seen as embodying the template of the perfect human, an amalgam of Adam and Apollo, Eve and the Venus de Medicis. In other words, discovering whiteness in the pacific, as if to vindicate white supremacy. 

The "guru" jerk who did this to actual human beings was most definitely intoxicated with this, I claim.
