"I find it frustrating when people imply that there is no way to analyze power because it’s ubiquitous, fluid, and purely relational. The idea that power is impossible to possess, anchor, and pinpoint can suggest that power relations are completely socially unintelligible and impossible to examine. However, even though there is no external view of a fixed locus of power, there is still the possibility of illuminating alignments of power through an examination of webs of power relations and patterns of effects. That how we might arrive at an analysis of, say, patriarchy, which isn’t reducible to the concentration of power into the hands of men, but rather is maintained though “mobile, polymorphous, and contingent techniques of power” that include multiple strategies, whether it’s the naturalization of women’s inferiority in scientific discourses or the day-to-day performance of gender in order to be perceived as an intelligible human subject. Even Foucault was very aware that something like “constellations” of power or “alliances” exist even in the absence of absolutist and fixed configurations of power. Confluences and bundles of relations of power are produced within disciplinary configurations of power. These constellations can accrue power and resemble classical “oppression,” as links, alliances, and alignments of power coalesce."

i don’t trust people who are super into “proper grammar” and “correct punctuation” because what lies just beyond that smug superiority is some sinister classism that gets acutely racist in a red hot minute, so for similar reasons I’m instantly wary of anyone who takes great pride in their love of “logic” and “intellect”

Fuck Earth Day.

No, really. Fuck Earth Day. Not the first one, forty-four years ago, the one of sepia-hued nostalgia, but everything the day has since come to be: the darkest, cruelest, most brutally self-satirizing spectacle of the year.

Fuck it. Let it end here.

End the dishonesty, the deception. Stop lying to yourselves, and to your children. Stop pretending that the crisis can be “solved,” that the planet can be “saved,” that business more-or-less as usual—what progressives and environmentalists have been doing for forty-odd years and more—is morally or intellectually tenable. Let go of the pretense that “environmentalism” as we know it—virtuous green consumerism, affluent low-carbon localism, head-in-the-sand conservationism, feel-good greenwashed capitalism—comes anywhere near the radical response our situation requires.=
