Leave trees in the ground, or we will find ourselves there. Leave trees in the ground, or else. No Justice, No Trees.

If we live in a world where people need to be paid to keep the peace⁠—they can be paid to keep the war.

I enjoy the smell of books far more than the look of them. Life is short and books are long.

When no one is left to bury us.

We don’t see any borders, do you? [picture of the Earth]

Politicians will ultimately always get in the way of our rebellions. Cut them out of our movement or our movement will cut ourselves away from the people.

🏴🏴 We wave these flags at night to brighten our way. If you won’t let us dream, then we won’t let you sleep.

People say I’m throwing my life away, I say my parents, grandparents, great grandparents… threw my life away. Now we wade through their garbage, hoping to come out okay.

And we were running and fighting, fighting and running, just like our ancestors had done. Without giving up, without surrendering, without being defeated.

The capacity for anguish is vast.

God bless the Godless.

Religion is the misunderstanding of the magical qualities the Universe bestows on all of us to varying degrees.

How about less talk of Jesus and more walk of Jesus.

Castles in the sky cast great shadows on we who dwell on the lands below them. To hell with your heavenly afterlife.

The fate of the system that should be⁠—and the existence of the false one that should not⁠—breeds in some of us a sleeplessness. We fight on, and we must dream on while we are awake when we are robbed of said sleep.

Be sure to not fall in to the same isms that you attack your enemies of.

We are Earth erupting, or we are its ashes.

Thy who chews the wrong green, becomes their own enemy—machine.

Validate their fears and not their desires.

Perhaps I overuse the word system, but it’s nothing compared to how much the system overuses us.

Dreams are an active space in which we have been conditioned to remain passive. #ReclaimDreams

Fragment of a song: Nothing ever changes, that’s why it’s called nothing, your spirit will soar, if to the eagles you sing. If we do not wander we will remain lost; If we do not wander we will remain Lost; If we do not wander we will remain lost; If we do not wander we will remain lost.

On your birthday give presence to yourself.

I prophesize that the judgment days are here: not judgement of our pasts, but of what we judge to do, now that we have the knowledge, the truth—what will we do now?

If you don’t have the energy to do anything this winter, then literally don’t do anything! The finite Earth doesn’t have energy for us. #WinterStrike #DegrowthDecember2019

Response to a question prompt: Getting my needs/food from the lands that I walk upon. Not the lands of other people, other animals, other ecosystems that shouldn’t be made to serve my needs way over here. As a settler/nomadist I feel it’s important for me to stop this inter-generational idea that other places than where I currently exist should be subservient to meeting my needs. Global capitalism is a disease, and if I can be in community that focuses locally we can start to heal ourselves and the lands that give us life.

May 32, May Gusta.

We don’t die—we live or we go extinct. #ExtinctionRevolution

Revolution is what the situation calls for. Anything less is a dishonor to it, and the extinction of the species.

All species are immortal until they go extinct.

Flaws in the brain create flaws in the terrain.

We call it like we see it, and we don’t see no fucking borders.

Don’t confuse slowing the violent system down with slowing yourself down in your efforts to correct it. We must speed up to head off the disease and to slow it down. We cannot take it easy and expect a good outcome. It is full on Luddite-ism to think that you can slow down.

Most anti-capitalists are not revolutionaries, they might say they are but they make the common mistake of thinking ideologies reserved for the mental space somehow will translate into active realization of revolution in the world generally. They fail to understand their ideology, and that their understanding is prevented from realization by the very system they hope to productively oppose.

Forests put out fires.

Humans we haven’t found ourselves yet—wander more! #ÈjércitoNomadistas

You might be a little busy for a Rave on J31x2? What about the cops?

Little Apple In The Big Apple, then became rescuing Little Apple from the Big Apple.

The tag of revolution many put on themselves is easily cut by the scissors of reality. Revolution must go deeper than the skin and the garbs which suffocate it from breathing.

You are here to fight this war or you are here to die from it. Alternatively, if you are not here to fight this war, then you are here to die from it.

Give fascists big enough cuffs and they’ll arrest the Earth. Those cuffs are named capitalism.

Before you can fully fight for the forests you must allow yourself to be planted there.

Lphorisms Z and random comments

When you really understand guerilla warfare, no one will know that you really understand guerilla warfare.

Urban densification is one of the worst artificial creators of scarcity mentality. Cities are the most intense invasion of our species and do not lead to the efficiencies that people dream of when we conceptualize of packing ourselves in the way we speak of packing sardines in. All that happens is a lesson of pure miseducation, where our conceputalization of ourselves on this Earth gets further distorted and replicates on, or produces in hideous inversion a different category of cancer on other, non-urbanized lands. Lands that are perpetually shit on are overfed just as lands that are never shit on are starved. Deserts of sand and deserts of concrete, with not a healthy jungle in between. This is end-state disease; this is extinction.

Seize the means of production? Destroy the means of production save the land. Factories are not for occupying but for de-occupying.

There’s not something wrong with me, there’s something wrong with the world we grew up in.

Identities didn’t roam the free and open land in the age of our ancestors, no. They are the festering acne on the surface of a deeply damaged modern landscape, known only in this age—the last age. The last age, for none will follow, extinction will lead, and the species left to bleed. Capitalism late stage bringing about the last age.

?ArtistA¿ Internally consistent, syncopated, outwardly questioning the destructive rhythms, with the proactive creation of new ones.

The decolonization is of physical structures built by humans, less so humans themselves. Human centrism is itself the product of colonialism. Decolonization must be about fighting for that which has been truly silenced and othered, which are the ecosystems, the land. Sovereign Peoples freely associating with that which is non-peopled but yet significant and more deeply oppressed by colonializing mindsets.

Elites call it a mistake. It’s a crime motherfucker! (in response to something Biden said was a mistake, back in February)

At the times, ephemeral or consistent, when Extinction Rebellion becomes more conservative politically than ecologically, we must practice #ExtinctionRebellionDistancing and be sure our vision is not steered away from Revolution.

It is a tragedy that the word tragedy has come to exist across our language.

Justice: A Thought. Just us, a bad thought.

The strongest fighters are lovers first.

Gentrifiers are those that move to a land and support economies and lifestyles that were not native to the people that were born in the land. Those that come and rent from landlords that are not of the community⁠⁠—but are themselves gentrifying pathway creators⁠—are gentrifiers. Gentrification is a fistula that sucks away resources from those who were more in harmony with the area, and so if your actions are supporting the fistula in any shape or form, and not the healing and resetting of it, then you are partaking in gentrification. Decent politics do not unmake this economic reality and this physical displacement and distortion of resources that one creates in an area when they choose to gentrify. Gentrification is a choice, a choice that imposes force and lack of choice on others.

Human extinction and human caused extinction has already been happening because of the system⁠—what do you call genocide? We have too many known historical examples and nothing has been done by the governments of the world. We need a revolution to overthrow the system.

Accelerate at the evil, and only at the evil. Your wake will be the waking, and the others will then balance you, positively slow-down as they also strengthen-up your vector. By the time you reach the evil all you will need to do is stare, and it will cower and blink and disappear. Let your speed be the only sword against the ecocidal, and let the rumor of it’s coming be the only blow. For then the wind makes a great turning into a gentle breeze, one that turns on the ecocidal into eco-regeneratives.

On A12, whether it’s April 12 or August 12, or any other fucking day spring-summer-fall, we are on the eve of a huge planting or a huge perishing. The time of hiding our needs and desires in the night is over. We move forward in broad daylight as the human race, and we find our roots and we plant them, or we bury ourselves. Do the work! Seed the future to see the future.

The Comradification of Late Capitalist cultural icons continues with Scrooge McDuck. Coming soon! Ahead of the May 32nd strike. Everyone is welcome on to our arc to get the fuck out of this decades-in-the-making dystopia. Comrade Britney thanks for getting this boat floating during corona time. Comrade spongebob is obviously down with the cause, up with the arc.

Hypocrites are those that speak of distributive justice from the towers of urbania that they chose to abode in, for they have no sense of the justice in distributing themselves harmoniously across the land. Whether it’s concentrating wealth in to the hands of the few, or concentrating bodies into the lands of the many, there is very much going to a problem of justice growing.

There are two types of fascists—fascists, and the reactionaries against them. Whether both of these are fascists or the fascist-ized is an open question. What we are witnessing now, in the world of social distancing, is a broadly distributed fascism: there is a vulnerability to conditionability made evident in the rapidity to obedience; secondly there is a general homogenization of ourselves in the visual-sphere, as the wearing of masks naturally de-humanizes ourselves in face (literally) of the other, and the other to us. Masks are far less complex than faces, and far more prone to stereotyped beliefs entering. Covering up with masks doesn’t liberate us from individuality, it strips us of our humanity with an objectified homogeneity. Perhaps wearing them keeps us safe, but it also puts us in danger.

Towards Writing Words That Are Worth A Thousand Words (Lphorisms, Subverbs)

Subverses are words worth a thousand words, not words that birth a thousand words. A lengthy apology of the notion of short writings, subverses, humming birds. Lenghty enough, unfinished… Here is the enough:

I once wrote that quotes are words [that are] worth a thousand words. Words that deserve being uttered more than once, and are potent enough that they need not be. Words filled with paradox and purpose—and repurpose!—subverbs and subverses at their best, culture jarring and culture jamming. Words worth committing to a picture, as memes, or even words worth a thousand pictures: emotion pictures. Paradigm cracking and paradigm creating, these words are three to four orders of magnitude greater than the comparably empty string of drivel that circulates as our numbing agent; the common words that serve to delocalize and disempower us—the plastic kites that in these sonically windy times blow and immobilize us to be nothing other than droplets wetting another’s wave—speakers that were already spoken for. Subverses and their ancestors are quite different, for they are difference. To cross-pollinate from permacultura conceptualizing—subverbs and their kin are words that are heavily stacked with deep and seamless ecosystem functionality, and they create their own edge in deserts of homogenization. They have great use value in our perilous times, but also a timelessness that will seed them through to future times, a future that will carry along all who attach to their kernel of enduring wisdom that expresses in the manifold appearances and languages that quotes are shaped in to. They are polyculturous. They see us through, as they are torches that keep us burning. Our imperiled species wants to continue on and to sing on, and as we are now faced with revolution or extinction, quotes are our fucking mating call when the the end of our breath draws near. Be not long winded—be deep rooting; and so beware of being past tensed.

We appear to be at our most creative because we’ve incredibly dumbed down the environment with which we interact. We stand out on the lands we’ve flattened out. The root cause living on as the classes of symptoms die out.

One Minute Writing Prompt “New York 2040”

Here’s what I wrote:

Zoom in on New York Town #DeGrowth and #Relocalization
NYC population has grown by a factor of 100—this is in that the biomass on the island has grown 100 times. The human population in the 5 boroughs, Manhattan in particular, has actually shrunk by a few orders of magnitude, and people have repopulated the lands in other parts in harmony, so we here.

I don’t know what’s going on in the rest of the world, that sort of superflous distracting information of ages past is no longer available nor deemed empowering. We learned that nNews of far away places doesn’t empower, it just breeds fear. There is no long are climate movement, only a micro-climate movement. A permaculture term. And a permaculture quote from Masonabout Fukoyka pervades human societies- “What Less Can I do”

The difference between a revolutionary person and a revolutionary people is a revolution. To put the revolutionary at the front, is to enable the persistence of the paradigm from which we are trying to break. A fiery revolutionary can only spark a fire that has already been in waiting.

Fight The Power (draft december 2019 old version)

Fight with power

Fight the power, fight the power

said year after year, forgotten hour every hour

fight the power fight the power

what the fuck does it stand for

We don’t stand with it

It’s gone

Power, power, power, power

power out

Forgotten in analog

now divided in bit

Zero sum game

but where is the winner

very little joy

even left for the sinner

systems we build, systems take hold

systems build us, insisting we’re sold

fuck your brands, fuck you in bold

everything you touch, turns to cold

winters never coming,

the winter we can’t escape

a system that promotes

thievery, murder, jealousy, rape

Haze everywhere, suffocating our fire

smoke every land, sorrows of empire

If I had a bullet, I’d bury it deep

not in your skull, but where it could sleep

The Earth take us, or it take our machines

right now it can only hear, the wrong screams

machines machines machines machines

where screams, where screams

drugged up – senses down

no pain is felt to turn this around

every hour every hour every hour every hour

call on your ancestors, who hung up on you

tell them you love them, but not what they do

tell them you need them, not because they are strong

tell them you need them, to right their wrong

then tell them to you hate them

let them carry that load

let their spirits rot

along with their road

dig up their bones

throw away their grave,

give them back to the oceans

to a cleansing wave

they didn’t leave us for dead

when we’re healthy pink

they did this knowingly

they left us extinct

they got death, and they left us for extinction

they got death, and they left us for extinction

our grandparents handed our parents a disaster,

our parents handed us a catastrophe

WE WILL NOT HAND OUR CHILDREN AN APOCALYPSE

fuck you and your writings of inevitability

we will not hide behind your books of divinity

we will let bullets be buried deep in our bodies

these times are prosperous? is that what we call these?

build your power, grow some roots

or the endless winds

the erosion bullet shoots

we will not hide behind divine books that say this was inevitable

we will allow the bullets to be buried deep in our bodies

Our time is not ours, our time is hours, minutes, seconds,

our time is now if we fuck their power

Another world is possible, but another Earth is not.

As Extinction Continues there will be more and more moments of silence but for the wrong reasons.

The work of building a movement very quickly becomes completely natural and intuitive to all who fully engage and believe in the process. Growing a movement is not a tangential stream—it is the return to the river that has always been our essence. It was our first nature that was robbed of us by the oppressions designed by civilizations bent on control.

Another world must be in walking distance, because we’ve run out of time. #CarLessKarlos

Home is space not a place. The territoriality, the possessiveness, that the dominant paradigms have bred in us since nomadism has left. These dominant paradigms are the false parents that took us from nursing from our Mother Tierra. #EjercitoNomadistas

Affinity groups flourish in an affinitive environment. Proactive and open to interaction. To organize the whole is to disorganize it. This attempt at homogeneity is the tyranny of one locality over another is what we now know as globalization. Don’t worry about straying from western notions of democracy; they need to be abandoned and democracy re-conceived. We want each group/cadre/tribe/organization to feel free to build it’s own power, and not be hampered by relationships of servitude. Each species must be strong to be the best ally to others. We do not want the inversion of the system, the inversion of the oppression- we want it’s destruction through our active dismantaling. We want allies not servants. We want decentralization, in other words localized empowerment.

Ejercito Nomadistas, we run for government off us. We walk for it too. For a May 1 Strike, for Youth enfranchisement and empowerment, for localism, for community Assemblies, for community autonomy, for Degrowth. Running for another world, walking for another world.

South is up! Compas Up Rose

Quite upsetting, the way we subalterned humans just accept our fate is to be decided on this platform of representative election cycles. With stakes so high, it’s like a sporting event for our existence. We so calmly let our futures be determined by something that requests we have little control over it. Stop giving legitimacy to it! Elections are not at all about asking the people to formally take control of the powerful, and are everything about asking the people to formally relinquish control to the powerful.

To decolonize is to deurbanize. The concentration that is an urban centers intrinsically relies upon there to be other, peripheralized spaces that exist in its service.

Extinction Revolution: We Are Not Drilling.

Home is a space we create, not a space that dominions desecrate.

We are about halting the system—we are going to do the no thing.

Oppression is almost as important a word as liberation. Use it carefully, but use it. Truth must be spoken.

No formation coming soon. Free Movement.

Happy Related Birthday! We are biological family so I’m obligated to say something, but most days we forget the other even exists.

 

 

 

Extinction Revolution Explanation (draft)

Why Extinction Revolution?

Many of us pouring our time and energy into Extinction Rebellion don’t believe that Rebellion according to the UK model to persuade the government is how this will or should ultimately play out. We want system change and we want to do it ourselves, autonomously and with new collectively held power. We no longer want to be in an uneasy cooperative position with some

What is The Extinction Revolution?

The Revolution Against Extinction is a campaign to evolve out of the old world that brought us to this point to Another World Is Possible. Autonomy is privileged.

(Revolución contra la Extinción, Revolución o Extinción for two possible Spanish variations that juxtapose XR as a choice, as used by XR Colombia – https://www.facebook.com/XRColombia/ )

)

is a campaign, a call to

Akin to The Extinction Rebellion movement started by Rising Up! In the UK, the Extinction Revolution is a campaign, a call to action, to fight for and create a revolution

We focus not on but creating a new, autonomous and local world, much like biological life has always lived until the exceptionalism of imperialist and globalizing human tendencies under a repressive dominant paradigm.

less on influencing governments and corporations to reform themselves, and

2 demands –

-collective, community assemblies – localization of power is the most direct way to heal the planet. Biological life operates in local spaces, humans have gone astray from this through the globalization ethos. It’s time to return to immediate (not mediated) interactions and sharing of power.

-Another world is possible, and we must make a Just Transition There. (4th demand worded)

We recognize war is being made on

Oppression and Extinction are not seperable, but extinction in the human epoch is genocide and is the final telos towards which oppression approaches.
