“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's a lot of work out there on using 'subjunctive' this way. See https://scholar.harvard.edu/sites/scholar.harvard.edu/files/puett/files/puett_ritual_and_the_subjunctive.pdf or https://link.springer.com/chapter/10.1007/978-3-030-17391-3_2 for instance.

Thank you very much Jordan. We are, however, arguing for a subjunctivity installed IN THE REAL as such, not in cultural translations of it.
