Techmology and Scientism / Re: CRAZY PREPARED

We used to live very close to a Mohawk Indian reservation in upstate New York, when I was very little.

My mom was working on a small garden in our yard and when a Mohawk guy she knew to be a good gardener (many of them were, iirc), she apologetically dismissed it as a hobby attempt. He laughed and said there was nothing to be ashamed of, because "the time to learn to garden is not when you're hungry."

My acting teacher sent us all the link to it, and mentioned it in class.


I have a sneaking suspicion that he may, in fact, be a mittens and win teacher.

I can't Torrent from my school. This means they do not want me to be CRAZY PREPARED and thus intend to use me as slave labor/food in the aftermath. :tinfoilhat:

Incidentally, Kenen: "Heroine" means something totally different than how you used it.  Made me giggle, though.

I read the OP again with this in mind and :lol:

This sort of sounds like an anti-Pinealist rant, but directed at us

except I have a hard time actually connecting it with anything that we actually do.

Your name brings to mind how I can (and will, given half a chance) rebuilt civilization out of the back deck of my ancient Volvo.
Now that sounds like an article for Intermittens.

Actually, that sounds like part of an entire Intermittens theme.

Now, being that I'm an environmental studies major and all, I probably ought to have an opinion on this.

I got nothing. There's so many howling monkeys on both sides that I'm starting to think that global climate trends are not all that different from economic climate (take a shot!) trends: nobody actually knows wtf is going on in its entirety, but a whole lot of people sure get off on making sweeping generalizations.

Which, really, is understandable behavior for monkeys. In general, there's three possible outcomes:
1) The doomsayers were right, and we're totally fucked.
2) Change is happening, but we can take steps to mitigate its impact. Shit will still happen, but it won't ruin civilization.
3) All of this was a big fat load of bullshit and nothing significant is really going to happen, at least not in our lifetimes.

Regardless of what specific arguments the talking heads and self-appointed experts make, they still have odds of one in three of being able to claim they were "right." Not bad, really.

If there's money and notoriety to be gained in the meantime by hyping the shit out of your position on the issue, why not? Fame, money, and one in three chance of being in the category of "People Who Were Right All Along" in the history books sounds like a pretty good deal to me.
