  Post-Work: The Radical Idea of a World Without Jobs
Posted by: Odin - Wed, 23 Jan 2019 23:39:14 +0000, 11:39 PM - Forum: Health & Psyche - No Replies

By Andy Beckett for The Guardian

Work is the master of the modern world. For most people, it is impossible to imagine society without it. It dominates and pervades everyday life – especially in Britain and the US – more completely than at any time in recent history. An obsession with employability runs through education. Even severely disabled welfare claimants are required to be work-seekers. Corporate superstars show off their epic work schedules. “Hard-working families” are idealised by politicians. Friends pitch each other business ideas. Tech companies persuade their employees that round-the-clock work is play. Gig economy companies claim that round-the-clock work is freedom. Workers commute further, strike less, retire later. Digital technology lets work invade leisure.

In all these mutually reinforcing ways, work increasingly forms our routines and psyches, and squeezes out other influences. As Joanna Biggs put it in her quietly disturbing 2015 book All Day Long: A Portrait of Britain at Work, “Work is … how we give our lives meaning when religion, party politics and community fall away.”

And yet work is not working, for ever more people, in ever more ways. We resist acknowledging these as more than isolated problems – such is work’s centrality to our belief systems – but the evidence of its failures is all around us.

  Neanderthal Dental Plaque Shows What a Paleo Diet Really Looks Like
Posted by: Odin - Sat, 12 Jan 2019 04:52:36 +0000, 04:52 AM - Forum: Health & Psyche - No Replies

"We need to revamp the view of Neanderthals as these meat-eating, club-toting cavemen,” adds Weyrich. “They had a very good understanding of what foods were available to them".

Weyrich’s results matches all of these earlier ones, and portrays Neanderthals as adaptable and versatile. “Those that occupied southern regions with relatively warm climates, consumed different types of foods, including meat and vegetables,” says Luca Fiorenza from Monash University, who was not involved in the study. “But Neanderthals that lived in very harsh conditions, such as northern Europe, were forced to rely on the limited sources available—meat.”

The mouth microbiomes of the various Neanderthals were as different as their diets. Those form the largely vegetarian individuals from El Sidron were closer to the microbial communities in chimps and Stone Age human gatherers. Those of the Spy Neanderthal clustered with other humans who eat more meat, including European hunter-gatherers and African cattle-farmers. These results suggest that you can use the microbes preserved within fossilized plaque to work out what their long-dead owners may have eaten.

  The Strait
Posted by: rocinante - Sun, 06 Jan 2019 23:27:19 +0000, 11:27 PM - Forum: Culture & Art - No Replies

The Strait: Book of Obenabi. His Songs
by Fredy Perlman

https://theanarchistlibrary.org/library/...the-strait

A Note to the Reader:

An early death kept Fredy Perlman from finishing the two-volume account of Robert Dupre’s forebears who lived on the Strait and in the surrounding woodlands. In both volumes, "Book of Obenabi. His Songs” and "Book of Robert Dupre. His Tales,” narrators recount familiar historic events as individuals indigenous to the region might have experienced them.

Fredy intended to present The Strait as texts written down by Obenabi’s nephew, Robert Dupre, in the 1850s. In 1851 Obenabi presumably told (or sang) his narrative to Dupre in Detroit’s prison hospital, uncle and nephew having been jailed as conspirators who opposed construction of a railroad across Michigan.

In addition to Obenabi’s songs, Robert Dupre was to be credited with preserving the tales of his aunt Wabnokwe. This history purports to be based on journals Obenabi’s sister kept throughout her life, and it constitutes Book II of The Strait. As a French-speaking resident of Detroit, Dupre wrote both narratives in French.

Fredy planned to present himself as the translator of Dupre’s manuscripts. His ostensible link to the text was through Ted Nasibu, a twentieth-century "rememberer” who was a fellow-printer at the Detroit Printing Co-op on Michigan Avenue. Both Ted and his friend Tissie appear in an earlier Black & Red publication, Letters of Insurgents. Through Tissie, Ted became acquainted with Robert Avis, Tissie’s cousin and Dupre’s great-grandson.

The Prologue situates Avis in a hospital bed in 1984. The surroundings combined with his anguish transport him to his great-grandfather’s side as the latter listens to his uncle Obenabi in 1851. At the beginning of Chapter 1, Obenabi, who also carries the name Jacob Burr-net, is recounting the experiences of his thirty-second year, events which occurred in 1826.

This volume of The Strait was essentially complete at the time of Fredy’s death in 1985 but a few minor changes were appropriate. In Chapter 9, I used Fredy’s outline to write some missing paragraphs. A few inconsistancies remain, but I hope they are minor.

With some misgivings, I have added the chronological dates on the right-hand pages. Although each page of Fredy’s manuscript mentions the year in which the events occurred, I doubt that he planned to include them when publishing the book. I feel they aid the reader in situating the story so have retained them.

Fredy did intend to append a glossary, but the rudimentary one provided here is mine, not his.
John Ricklefs designed the cover.

  Deceit.Lies.Control.Manipulation. THE NET
Posted by: Hoot - Fri, 04 Jan 2019 03:14:48 +0000, 03:14 AM - Forum: Science & Technology - No Replies

Oh how kooky things are getting.
  Technology is our problem. We all know this,right ? Maybe a reminder of tactics by the controllers while keeping in mind what tech is now capable of.
   There are folks online(for now) writing from the heart,like myself. There are also scum out there that are looking to deceive,entice and help paint a big ol' bullzeye on you. What you say, can, and will be used against you ? Maybe this will hold true in a really big,surprising way some day. But who's keeping track of what we're saying ? Better question is: Who or what is enticing us to openly (online is in the open) declare ourselves as dissidents ?
   Here's another question: If you've been able to realize and grasp what the ultimate goal is for the controllers, do you think for a moment that they're not going to use the internet (and multitudes of other techs) to find and destroy everyone in opposition to them ? 
  We've let the problem go for quite a while now. Ted told us it will get harder. We need to focus OFFLINE. I hope we can find a way to collaborate with local friends without the net. I think it is time to prioritize.
  Talking of rabbits and mushrooms and the wilds is my pleasure too, but this is no time for that. I also don't care what's on TV. Havn't watched for 5 years. Info,intell,tactics is all we should be interested in. With that said, I like Jacobi's site: Wild Will Project. Lot's of good info. 
   Is Jacobi the real deal ? I like to think so, but I will not trust the internet with making my judgement. Nor will I trust the net for accusations against certain people.
  With THAT said, we can remember what the controllers are capable of, in the form of an example,when they team up with occult members.
    Maybe some of you are familiar with the "Free State Project" in NH ? Well, there's an offshoot of this called the "Shire Society". A thirty-something from FL. decided he needed to come to NH to "promote freedom". I've become familiar with their forum and have created a theory. ONLY A THEORY. At the same time I don't give a shit about these technophile/bitcoiners either way. Here is an interesting link on Ian Freeman of the "Shire Society"  
https://thelastbastille.wordpress.com/20...rken-rose/
    Here is another link on informants and infiltration tactics used by CIA. http://www.outpost-of-freedom.com/Vortex.htm
You do the math.
  I have faith in bringing it all down. I love the wilds,mountains.  I think the internet,will deceive us in uncanny ways soon. 
   Bottom line is trust. Beware of the internet.
I'll be in the Northeast Mtns. with the boreal chckadees. Fuck the system.

  Anyone well read in Marx?
Posted by: Odin - Thu, 03 Jan 2019 20:42:18 +0000, 08:42 PM - Forum: Politics - Replies (3)

There is something which stuck in my head that I read many years ago. It was either Zerzan or Bob Black who wrote something which included the line 'Marx thought age 9 was a good time to start work'.

At the time when I read it many years ago, it sounded strange. So I looked it up. I remember it took me a long time to find it at my local university library, but I eventually found it in one of the volumes of Letters to Engels (I think?), but I'm not sure. When I read the context it wasn't exactly a devastating critique of Marx's view on child labor, since he also advocated for much better working conditions and shorter hours for working children. So I didn't dwell on it, but I did make a mental note of the fact that Marx was in principle still okay with the idea of child labor.

Over the years I had forgotten about it until recently when it came up in a discussion I was having with someone on a youtube channel. Now they are demanding a source.

So I went back through Zerzan's works and Bob Black's works to try and find the original source where I first read it, but I can't find it anywhere in either of their writings. I thought for sure I had read it in Zerzan's The Practical Marx, but it wasn't there. Maybe it was in an article in AJODA? On the other hand, I'm not about to go through Marx's entire collected works to try and find it again.

If anyone on here is well read in Marx and could point me in the right direction where Marx would have mentioned this, and exposed his belief in child labor, I'd be grateful for a reference.

Thanks.
