“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

We Did This. So We're Going to Repair It.

 Since Slavoj just said it I don't feel so bad about it, having been lambasted for it in Japan. 

White politics and thought created the nation state. Then it created one inside a destroyed caliphate. I've seen the maps, drawn by "Lawerence of Arabia" (they're in the Old Library and my alma mater, Magdalen College Oxford):

"As I already suggested in a recent text of mine, ideally the US (with some allies) should simply invade Gaza from the sea, establish its own power zone there where millions of civilian refugees will be safe, providing for their elementary welfare and in this way constrain Israeli power - it is a safe bet that Israel would not risk an open conflict with the US. In crazy times, crazy acts are needed."
