Depressed / angered / confused / rendered hopeless by the state of the world? Is the spectre of Christmas Consumption eating your soul? Is The Dithering - a state of indecisive agitation - getting to you?
My Christmas present to you is this: Donna Hathaway’s important and hopeful paper “Anthropocene, Capitalocene, Plantationocene, Chthulucene: Making Kin”
“Right now, the earth is full of refugees, human and not, without refuge. I think our job is to make the Anthropocene as short/thin as possible and to cultivate with each other in every way imaginable epochs to come that can replenish refuge…My purpose is to make ‘kin’ mean something other/more than entities tied by ancestry or genealogy…”
And let’s start making kin!
