Notre dame de Landes

December 11, 2012

People sometimes struggle against powers larger than them to protect their homes.

I think its self evident that people struggle to defend their homes. Ever since people settled down they had to fend off other groups to keep them out of their lush valleys and what not.

With the discovery of the Americas this struggle grew to new dimensions. The dimensions spoken of here are about the establishment of a Global trade system in which many decisions of geopolitical consequence where conceived in a domain where Progress, Religious/White superiority, or capitalism and racism joined hands to go down history on its way to Modernity.

Even though its clearer than ever that the Global South is more clearly exploited by the parasitic tendencies of Modernity, these powers do not exclusively roam those lands. Currently brave civilians are standing up against a Modernizing project in their area imposed upon them by Big Capital and the complicit State.

Their stories are twisted in the media, because if they would not audiences would get confused. people would get angry because their worldview of Modernity would not be supported, people would join the struggle and create different societal bonds and work from counterpower. Europe would effectively stand up against its self identified project of Modernity. This would especially in this age of Globalization be not in the interests of the old Domains of capitalist power.
