Polar Bear Facepalm: (“analysis” of) Climate Camp #epicfail

polarbearclimatecampSpeechless, really.

“I acknowledge the significance of post-Hardin literature on the commons whole-heartedly, but place myself in opposition to such literalizing interpretations of CfCA’s anti-authoritarian ecology, discerning in fears about the commons a certain 21st-century Hobbesianism that the mere experience of self-organized management of common-pool resources too easily dispels.”


“In addition, they reasserted a difference between natural and political components of self and being that lags behind the emergent ironizing and blasphemous cyborgian faith that — at times — lifted Climate Campers and may lift the Climate Justice Collective, up and out of the stew of mythic socializing dualities.”

and… well, it really does go on for paragraph after paragraph like this.  Has to be read to be dis-believed….
