> The underlying point is that the progress of society has nothing to offer us and everything to take away. Often it feels like we are giving it away without a fight: when we sell our time for money, allow our passions to be commodified, invest ourselves in the betterment of society, or sustain ourselves on the spoils of ecological destruction, we openly (though not consensually) participate in our own destruction.
I remember how finally identifying CIVILIZATION as the problem was such a relief. like, "oh so it's not my fault for being trans or pan or not thinking in the same ways as most people? it's, like, concrete institutionalized systems of unambiguous oppression? oh... wow, cool. I'm not broken like I thought I was all this time!"
