From Wild Resistance no 6, Winter 2019.
January 21, 2019
I’ve opened nearly all of the previous five issues of this journal with an unintentional, yet persistent theme: our world, the world that civilization has created and recreated, is shifting.
Politically, socially, ecologically: not only is the climate shifting towards instability and unpredictability, social and political climates are as well. It is no longer a question about whether or not we are off the rails, but how far off we are and what damage will be done in the crash. The events of our world seem to unfold in the chaotic outpouring of feedback loops created by the real time updates fed into devices that are meant to keep our attention. Devices meant to keep us from looking up.
