One could argue that industrial production could be maintained and yet scaled down, leaving ecosystems and non-industrial peoples some room to co-exist. Firstly, this proposal invites the question of why civilization should determine its own boundaries, instead of the victims of its predation. Secondly, there are no historical examples of production economies that do not expand, mainly because they must expand after depleting the resources available to them at any given time. The structural complexity and hierarchy of civilization must be refused, along with the political and ecological imperialism that it propagates across the globe. Hierarchical institutions, territorial expansion, and the mechanization of life are all required for the administration and process of mass production to occur. Only small communities of self-sufficient individuals can coexist with other beings, human or not, without imposing their authority upon them.
“Half of me is beautiful but you were never sure which half.” - Ruth Feldman, “Lilith”
The support of industrial society is act against life, a genocidal act against the original nature-based peoples of the world, also an act of speciesism. This comes in the forms of capitalism, communism, socialism and some groups of anarchist who in fact consume animal products, alcohol, marijuana and other unnecessary products. Well its all fucked up, so enjoy the beauty that's left and try to do the best you can - i understand that for some people this is a lot to ask... and then again many don't care, this reminds me of something i read "It's difficult to wake a person who is only pretending to be asleep".
Every worm, insect, fish, bird, every animal is working for the well being of the planet. Only we the industrialized humans, who claim to be rational and the most intelligent species here, are not doing that. We consume products produced by our industrious hands and we who blame society, understand that we are society.
The least that we can do is to stop creating little consumers who grow to become dependent, stop offering the children up to the billionaires, their corporations and industries as wage slave workers!
“If children were brought into the world by an act of pure reason alone, would the human race continue to exist?
Would not a man rather have so much sympathy with the coming generation as to spare it the burden of existence, or at any rate not take it upon himself to impose that burden upon it in cold blood?”
― Arthur Schopenhauer, Studies in Pessimism: The Essays
Industrial civilization is the target here and it must fall in order for there to be any kind of justice and for peace to happen!
We are coerced into believing that we need to work in order to maintain our sanity and that it is evolutionary. We have become subservient to greedy wealthy men, this is not freedom, this is a well disguised slavery!
The planet is becoming a globale work prison and one day the billionaires soon to become trillionaires will no longer need us - expendable we are. We will be replaced by androids, cheap workers needing only to be mechanically maintained and programmed by a small amount of humans. We are being used by greedy narcissistic man who care very little for our well being!
The paradise of the consumer is made out of the hell the animals live, which is factory farming and related to planetary degradation!
Many people desire an existence free of coercive authority, where all are at liberty to shape their own lives as they choose for the sake of their own personal needs, values, and desires. For such freedom to be possible, no individual person can extend his or her sphere of control upon the lives of others without their choosing. Many who challenge oppression in the modern world strive toward their conception of a “free society” by attempting to merely reform the most powerful and coercive institutions of today, or to replace them with “directly democratic” governments, community-controlled municipalities, worker-owned industrial federations, etc. Those who prioritize the values of personal autonomy or wild existence have reason to oppose and reject all large-scale organizations and societies on the grounds that they necessitate imperialism, slavery and hierarchy, regardless of the purposes they may be designed for.
The disappearance of the working class as a defining force in the struggle against capital we will also witness the disappearance of the concept of the crisis, once considered to be a precise moment in the future where economic collapse and disorder were to herald in the revolution. There was the belief, even among many anarchists, that one day this would occur, it was only a question of time, so all that we had to do was to spread anarchist ideas and propaganda whilst awaiting the great event. We now know that crises do not exist, not because the world is in perfect order but because, on the contrary, it is in complete disorder. And if capital is surviving by adapting to the chaos of economic reality, we cannot talk about programming or economic ‘laws’, or think of the class struggle as something that has ‘alternate phases’. There are moments of greater or lesser intensity in the struggle between exploiters and exploited, but there is no way to measure expectation. We must conclude that the time is always ripe for attack, it is only the means we choose and the surrounding conditions that change.
The great difference between Nature Based Spirituality and human centric organized religions, (this includes politics, science-technology, entertainment, fashion and design, every aspect of contemporary industrial society, the health and welfare of mind and body) is in the inter-personal relationships. Nature Based Spiritual societies had a practice that taught respect for all beings. Realize, Nature Based Spiritual peoples had a "system" that produced a society in which there were no locks on doors, no orphanages, no need for oaths, and no hungry people, no exploitation - just a necessity for survival, and the practical and spiritual need to maintain the interpersonal relationship with animal and nature (of course there will be the conventional and insecure civ-man to contradict, with an overdeveloped sense of entitlement to be right and rational). Nature Based Spirituality taught that sharing one's goods with another human being or animal was the highest form of behavior. These people had tenaciously held to this tradition of sharing their goods with other people in spite of all attempts by invaders; organized religions, government agencies (police or military), and schools to break them of this custom.
And then industrial society came along and substitute "giving" for sharing. There was only one catch; giving meant, giving your time to work and bosses, in exchange for currency and not just to charities, which industrial soceity created, a poverty. But to the consumerist society, and not "sharing" with other people or animals and definitely not sparing nature from our human greed. Giving, in the modern sense, is simply a method of controlling the masses, and convincing them they are individual, that also have a personal preference and a freedom of choice, collectively and unconsciously, a form of institutionalized selfishness.
Animals, free-living tribal people and Nature, ultimately Earth, she is sacrificed at the alter our massive hedonistic society!
Oblivious to activities of pretended "human nature".
Demi gods are still influential, no longer respecting nature.
Entertainment Politics is where the GODhead speaks.
We have lost a mass generation to him.
With an overdeveloped sense of entitlement!

I washed my sheets at the riad of an awkward stint
There was a time when I remembered you
Forgotten in this moment
A virtual fantasy avatar injectory
I was the one that was confused
Keep the city clear for me
urban panic station
The mind of ill repute
A plastic doll a drastic call
At the top side of the continent
In a traditional Moroccan palace
With an interior garden...
I discovered I was in the Fallacious region!
We The People!
The kind of violence that goes on is unseen by most people, in fact most people in first world countries ingest the violence every day and believe that it's normal, that violence has now become part of the treat that all of humanity, and not just humans, but currently all other species are now experiencing the violence of human domination, we have come to occupy almost the entire planet, through violence!
The beat of the drum resonates, into the spirit, celebrating human ingenuity, intuitively from the stretched skin of the exploited!
Synthetic - a virtual rise to fame...
