No Fracking Anywhere

IAF Distributes Addresses and Phone Numbers of NC Energy and Mining
Commission

On July 1st Insurrectionists Against Fracking, a loose alliance of humans
who like drums and hate being poisoned, visited a public hearing in
Sanford, North Carolina' regarding hydraulic fracturing in the Cumnock
Shale Formation. Under state pressure. the North Carolina Energy and
Mining Rights Commission is fast tracking regulations to determine how and
where the gas and oil industry can frack and dump fracking wastes. Aside
from creating a cacophony before and during the meeting, the recently
formed and disbanded IAF circulated 100 flyers encouraging the public to
contact the North Carolina Energy and Mining Rights Commission directly.
The flyer also contained links to direct action and sabotage manuals. As
fracking anywhere is an attack everywhere, the flyer is replicated here
for your use.

It's cool to see folks doing this kind of thing from an anarchist perspective. Sometimes when people start with a total critique, they can't figure out anything concrete to do with it besides read more critique. Which is in the best interest of booksellers, I guess.

indigenous anarchists understand the universe as a relational web structure [habitat-inhabitant interdependence] and this is also affirmed in the relations-first, things-secondary modern physics view.

colonialism's worldview, on the other hand, is not relational, but is based on notionally independently-existing things-in-themselves, notionally with their own internal process driven and directed development and behaviour. this is the Enlightenment European view of 'man', 'organism' and 'organization'. it is a view which regards the 'inhabitants' as 'independent' of the 'habitat', in contradiction with the indigenous anarchist view of 'inhabitant-habitat INTERdependence'.

slowly, the Enlightenment European view of habitat-inhabitant INdependence [as in Newtonian physics and mainstream science] is being exposed to have no grounds in physical reality and is a view that is being rejected as the NOT PHYSICALLY REAL IDEALIZATION that it is.

as the storm-cells say to the atmosphere, ... we ARE the only home we have.

hippy hippy hippy

the natural world continues to undergo relational transformation and this is the world of our experience. we invent words like 'technocracy', 'capitalism', 'sovereigntism', 'authoritarianism', 'christianity', 'islam' to point to 'belief systems' which involve 'rules' and 'regulating' of one's behaviour through the intellect. sovereigntism requires that we pay taxes to a central authority to fund the hiring of police and military to ensure that we continue to pay taxes.

capitalism requires that we trust 'monetary currency', a symbolic substitute for goods and services. this has allowed us to unravel the relational bindings of naturally-evolved community; i.e. if we saw that our friends needed to enlarge their house, we helped them do so, and we felt good in our 'rising to the occasion' to do so. in general, our individual and collective behaviour was orchestrated and shaped by the relational dynamics we are situationally included in. in a capitalist society, money does away with the outside-inward orchestrating and shaping animator of behaviour that characterizes the relational matrix of nature. a family in need of enlarging their house uses the combination of their own intellectual authority plus money to individually fulfill their own needs. in the capitalist system, money is what actualizes the abstract Enlightenment archetype for man, organism and organization, of the 'independent reason-driven machine'. money breaks the individual out of the relational matrix of nature and converts him from a sailboater [who derives his power and steerage from the relational dynamics in which he is situationally included] to a powerboater [who derives his power and steerage from his own inboard resources]. capitalism and socialism [both being supported by money] don't just convert the individual from sailboater to powerboater, they convert individual communities, individual commercial enterprises and individual sovereign states to powerboaters so that they can carry their member-passengers forward to their respective desired destinations.

this 'replacing' of the source of organizing, from the relational-spatial dynamics of Nature wherein outside-inward orchestrating influence and inside-outward asserting behaviours are in sustained conjugate relation, ... with an intellect and purpose driven and directed organizing force, essentially splits 'man' apart from the overall relational matrix of nature. the new 'capitalist behaviours' [or socialist behaviours] get in the way of natural relational dynamics because the individuals [humans, nations, commercial enterprises] unilaterally 'declare their independence' and their intention of driving their behaviours, powerboater style, from their own intellectual plans and purpose that they keep 'in their heads'. the unfolding 'now' of their experience means less and less to them as their powerboater destinations reach back from the future [illusion] to grab them by their lapels and hijack their behaviour.

what is 'real' in a physical sense, is what is unfolding in the continuing 'now' of our experience, and that 'reality' is still kept in its natural primacy by 'other animals' and all of nature, putting those humans whose belief systems have had them 'unilaterally declare independence' and see themselves as powerboaters that intellectually and purposefully set up their own preferred destinations, and let their individual and collective behaviours serve the attaining of those destinations, while ignoring the call of unfolding now and its outside-inward orchestrating influence. The literature abounds with stories of beautiful and wild females pulling on intellectually-driven powerboater males, saying; 'let's do it now, not just a quickie, let's keep doing and and be making some babies' while the destination oriented male is saying, ... we don't have enough money yet. in three more years, given the promotions and raises i plan on getting, we can let the orchestrating influence of the unfolding 'now' have a bit more influence once again, as when we were natural born kids. but, right now, i am determined to let the intellectual constructs that fashion my desired future hijack the sourcing of my behaviour.

“What we call ‘normal’ is a product of repression, denial, splitting, projection, introjection and other forms of destructive action on experience.” -- R.D. Laing

the point is that the world of our natural experience is one world, and the worlds of capitalism, socialism, sovereigntism, technocracy, christianity, etc. are like embellishments superimposed on it. if a fleet of boats pursuing a school of salmon suddenly stop and turn around, ... all of the laws of newtonian science apply, as normal, ... but the wolf on the shore will be surprised because he does not see the international boundary line that is implied by two markers spaced a long way apart, and he doesn't read the printed warnings in the nearby marinas.

'progress' or the notion of the 'advancement' of the capitalist system, or 'technocracy', is something that happens within the intellectual belief-based system in our heads and is NOT something that happens in the real world of our natural experience. the cleverest wolf observer will never experience this thing we call 'progress' although he will experience the degenerate fall-out from the manner in which it reshapes our belief-based behaviours [and puts them even more out of joint with our natural in-the-now experiencing].

there is a clever wolf in each of us, and he remains in nature and outside of this dynamic we refer to as 'progress'. he is not compelled to 'play the game' and be part of some or other intellectual belief system that 'regulates' the believer's behaviour, but it may be that those he loves are absolutely mesmerized by it, and if he keeps his membership in the capitalist lunatic asylum in good standing, he can continue to embrace and be together with his loved ones.

“School is an institution for drilling children in cultural orientation. …American classrooms, like educational institutions anywhere express the values, preoccupations,and fears found in the culture as a whole. School has no choice; it must train the children to fit the culture as it is. …Since education is always against some things and for others, it bears the burden of the cultural obsessions. …It thus comes about that most educational systems are imbued with anxiety and hostility, that they are against as many things as they are for. … The function of education has never been to free the mind and the spirit of man, but to bind them…acquiescence, not originality. …Schools are the central conserving force of the culture.” – Jules Henry, Culture Against Man

“Children do not give up their innate imagination, curiousity, dreaminess easily. You have to love them to get them to do that. Love is the path through permissiveness to discipline; and through discipline, only too often, to betrayal of self.” -- R.D. Laing

how many children have you encouraged to keep 'their' membership in the capitalist lunatic asylum in good standing by sending them to school? if you missed the chance to do something when you were young and fearless, do you still have the strength to let [encourage] your children to leave the asylum even if they have to abandon you in it? such questions are directed to those born into such lunatic behaviour-regulating asylums, most of whom, involuntarily continue to commit their energies to sustaining them, whether we are talking 'capitalism', 'sovereigntism', 'christianity' or etc.

^no one will ever read this comment.

nothing in emile's comment departs from or goes beyond the understandings of 'indigenous anarchism.

the 'circularity' of interdependence in the habitat-inhabitant relation is what leads one out of existing entrapment by linear thought structures which are the foundations of authoritarianism, sovereigntism, capitalism,and out of the egotist view of self as an 'independent reason driven system' whose development and behaviour is purported to jumpstart out of one's own interior, giving one one's own linear trajectory from past to future whose x,y,z,t coordinates are mapped in absolute space and absolute time.

for anyone needing liberation from the Western linear mindset [it's an ok simple tool, but if that's the best you got, you're in trouble], it's worth looking into 'indigenous anarchism' and how the circular understanding of 'inhabitant-habitat INTERdependence' frees one from the linear structures of Western colonialism, sovereigntism, capitalism and moral judgement based retributive justice, where herds of self-described 'independent reason-driven systems' let their individual and collective actions be driven by a rational master-plan hatched through a 'political process' homed in on using the principle of Lafontaine "la raison du plus fort est toujours la meilleure"

Surely niggas in the americas before the finding were very varied. But some specific "view" has been pushed as "The Indigenous View." It's kind of like, say, passing some mainstream buddhist "view" as the buddhist view.

And the mainstream is shallow. mitakuye oyasin, how is grammatically that even but has been translated as...

Languages are like framing methods. English "we are all related" is a framing, so it would be "we are all separated." Having come to have an "a priori," this not outside framing, taking it somewhere... But does it follow? How could framings follow. What would be their following. Taking "we are all related" to, say, "war is nonsensical." Framing it through the other. Does it follow?

The rationalization of the strongest...

in “reply2emile” you seem to argue that the indigenous peoples, and/or Buddhist sects cannot be captured within one philosophical profile, ... that the various indigenous peoples were ‘too different’ to capture in a common framework such as ‘The Indigenous View’.

as you say, the view that ‘we are all related’ [mitakuye oyasin] could be interpreted in English as ‘we are all separated’. all of the stars in the milky way are visibly separated but are all related by participating in the same spiraling form.

this is a ‘things-first, relations-second’ Western view.

in the relational space of the indigenous anarchist, outside-inward orchestrating influence shapes inside-outward asserting developments and behaviors.

thus the indigenous anarchist view of ‘different’ is that the PARTICULAR, DIFFERENT ‘individual’ persons or tribes are the universe expressing itself differently through these different relational forms (agents of transformation) that gather and are regathered within the ‘relations-first, things-secondary’ energy-charged plenum.

by contrast, the Western view of PARTICULAR, DIFFERENT ‘individual’ persons or tribes, is ‘things-first, relations-secondary’ so it starts from the ‘thing-components’ [euclidian closed geometric forms] and goes from the general to the particular. the general forms from basic ‘common geometry’; i.e. ‘all those furless-skinned things with two feet, two legs, torso, two arms, two hands, and head’. ‘Difference comes the ‘options’; i.e. depending on whether we add breasts-and-vagina, or penis-and-testicles, we branch off into more particular and thus ‘different’ things [quantifying the size of these organs gives another dimension of ‘difference’]. We continue to capture ‘difference’ in this purely inside-outward feature fashion by measuring how much work they do, and how much money they make etc.

there is no ‘dances with wolves’ differential that points to habitat-inhabitant relation based difference as in the indigenous anarchist tradition.

the concepts of difference differs. that’s why when you say;

“Surely niggas in the americas before the finding were very varied”

by ‘varied’ are you speaking of ‘different’ in the Western sense or in the indigenous anarchist sense?

anyhow, in the relations-first, things secondary view of indigenous anarchism and modern physics, the overall relational dynamic, which is non-local, non-visible and non-material because it is purely relational, is like ‘the great field’ or ‘the great spirit’ and since the individual relational forms are the universe expressing itself, the material and the physical are one thing with conjugate aspects. by contrast, in the Western worldview, space and matter are two separate things and mind and body are two separate things.

if you go to any ‘indigenous anarchist’ website, you will find offerings such as this.

“Given all of the geographic, ethnic, cultural, and linguistic diversity of Native American spiritual traditions, some consistent key concepts can be generalized and summarized. These teachings originate in the oral tradition and can now be found in published forms. In terms of philosophy and belief, most native spiritual traditions are considered holistic and animistic. They originate in ideas that the spiritual and material worlds are intimately entwined and that nature is an embodiment of sacred and spiritual energies. Therefore, everything on Earth and in the universe— plants, animals, clouds, humans, rocks, and so forth—has a soul and is animated by spirit. This belief is also often called pantheistic, meaning that the source of the universe, the universe itself, and nature (including humans) are all merged as part of one sacred, spiritual creation. These teachings support the idea that the divine or sacred is both immanent and transcendent, with the emphasis on immanent, prioritizing a more personal and intimate relationship with the sacred in daily life.”

the ‘commonality’ of belief across indigenous anarchist tribes includes the fact that they regard individual relational forms, such as the human or the mountain or whatever, as being the manner in which the universe is expressing itself [is transforming]. i.e. vive ‘la différence’.

the ‘great spirit’ of the ‘continually transforming relational spatial plenum’ expresses itself through the individual relational forms that gather in the relational activity continuum. the purely relational flow of the atmosphere-plenum expresses itself through the storm-cells it gathers, like the biosphere expresses itself through the ‘tribes’ of people and other things it gathers in the relational activity continuum.

the non-local, non-visible, non-material field-flow of the continually transforming relational spatial plenum, ... is the one-ness that brings forth the ‘differences’. in the indigenous anarchist worldview, the differences are the children of the one-ness. for the Western world view, those individuals, tribes etc. that are different, are different ‘in their own local inside-outward asserting right’, ... so we would trouble ourselves, as you seem to be doing, with the issue of how so many ‘different things’ [in the sense of ‘independently-existing different-things-in-their-own right’] could develop a common worldview. the answer is that they are not ‘really’ independently-existing existing different things-in-their-own-right, but that is the illusion comes bundled in with the Western world view and its noun-and-verb European language-and-grammar thinking-machine architecture.

the natural world continues to undergo relational transformation and this is the world of our experience. we invent words like 'technocracy', 'capitalism', 'sovereigntism', 'authoritarianism', 'christianity', 'islam' to point to 'belief systems' which involve 'rules' and 'regulating' of one's behaviour through the intellect. sovereigntism requires that we pay taxes to a central authority to fund the hiring of police and military to ensure that we continue to pay taxes.

no concepts!

Talking of concepts sounds like an attempt to give a reality and unity to words and their use in frases. The concept of violence.

English "people" sounds nationalistic, in that "people" denotes an homogeneous, boundless group of humans and "peoples" multiple groups. The american people. Many politicians like to speak of "The People;" generalizing about "the humans" doesn't quite works. And with niggas in america before the finding, there were tribes and what not but I'm sure it wasn't all just "tribes."

So I was talking of specific humans, not "peoples."

Now "niggas in america before the finding" is rather long but I find it curious how it's used, like you don't see it used for chinese, "ethnically chinese" whose distant ancestors presumably were in china too. It's like calling these niggas in america "indigenous" is the politically correct thing.

Nigga your long ass replys feel a bit condescending, this ain't a monthly journal or something

Views are hopelessly outdated! Abolish views!

how "indigenous" is used*

according to Spinoza and poststructuralist thinkers who are influenced
by him, is immanent as multiplicity which fully constitutes the plenum
of relations from innumerable unique singularities, all of which are articulated
as differences of a substance that is not of origin , but coextensive .
this is a "western' way which is similar in sentiment and cosmological
understanding to indigenous peoples. the key is the inter-relational field
of forces of relation. in that sense both traditions, if you are open to them and look for them,
have much to teach as a more adequate way to coordinate specifically human relations as a-part
of the full of plenum relational forces. both of these ways have nothing to do
with Neo-Hegelian dialectics ,either of the idealist or materialist versions.
Dismantling the current Ideology of Sameness and the Power of the One(%),( under control of the Master Signifier);
and the liberating of full expression of difference will go a long way to the furthering of mutual respect
and harmony with our habitat . we here strive for (conatus) : mutual respect among ourselves and with our environment.
we must overcome Fear but most importantly our Cynicism; on this site, towards each other and towards our prospects.

THE PRIMITIVISTS HAVE FOUND WHERE I LIVE AND MAILED ME A ROCK. I'm fairly convinced this site's admin gave my info over to them! Please people, don't trust anyone on this site. These hipster losers are closing in and I'm afraid that it's going to take more than educating the masses to get out of this pickle.

If I recall, humans are computerized machines which can be traced back to the Neolithic period where we mechanically engineered rocks. Given this human created technology's capacity for creating fire, bridges and homes, those hypocritical primitivists sure do rely on technology to send messages....another form of technology!

Stupid primitivists

My name is Anarchisteve and I approve this message

Paid for by Friends from the left. Vote Steve in with that mechanical extremity we have named the arm!

Fuck off you Parliamentarian.

Steve is a leftist. Some leftists advocate parliamentary politics. Therefore Steve is a Parliamentarian.
