Henceforth and all through out, homo sapiens sapiens may be referred to as man, mankind, or the certainly masculine pronoun of ?he?. It is here that the writer admonishes the implications of such discriminative methods, and extends his due pre-sincerities for any political faux pas he may commit. Let these references imply the axiomatic in expendability of the woman and not be interpreted as the propulsion of chauvinistically dominated histories. The task of symbolizing the equities of women and men in every reference to humans throughout writing is task in and of itself. This being said, any complaints regarding this issue will be warmly embraced, given a feasible substitute is in accompany. To speak frankly, the human race acts as a parasite of the Earth, whether directly so or by association. However, this insectile comparison discredits the parasite: whose clout does consist of occasional discomforts to the gastro, but stakes no claim to Tupperware touting refrigerators. A parasite, like any other non-human, plays its role in the delicate balance of the community of Life; taking only what it needs to survive. Judging the merit of this role is as subjective as defining the word terrorism. Conversely, humans behave as if the Rapture may come at any moment; pillaging the Earth?s resources and stockpiling them for safekeeping. The depletion of the ocean?s fisheries, destruction of the rainforest, for three million years the human race managed to enact its role in accordance with the ?untamed? world. Theodore Roosevelt?s arrogant vision of America?s manifest destiny is virtually a parable for contemporary civilization, and will one day be its undoing. Theo?s words epitomize the devastatingly expansive position most of man has taken throughout history, with the Fertile Crescent as its Genesis. The discovery of agriculture allowed man to expand in settlements, which Daniel Quinn describes as a ?biological adaptation practiced to some degree by every species (135).? Quinn continues by saying that ?every adaptation supports itself in competition with the adaptations around it.? The law of limited competition is one that ensures the stability of the community of Life by naturally limiting the expansion of one species, thus limiting its competition with other species. Humans haven?t always excluded themselves from these laws of nature, and understand that bi-pedal prodigals are not inherently so. Prior to the ascension from the cradle of civilization, various cultures such as the Bushmen of Africa, Kalapalo of Brazil, and Navajo of the United States managed to obey the bounds of limited competition. What brought the harmony to hiatus was the discovery that man should no longer be limited to teeter tottering on the razor thin line of hunter-gathering existence. The moment Adam sunk his pearls through the flesh of an apple from the Tree of Good and Evil, his true place amongst the beasts of the jungle was realized. Previous to Adam?s Macintosh machination man grasped no higher hold of survival than a simple field mouse, for both were foraging incessantly to extend the days of a seemingly pointless existence. Modern man refuses to acknowledge this, for he believes that before him stands a world of great disarray and chaos. Armed with agriculture, humans have decided that the proliferation of our adaptation is more important than that of community from which it spawned. Man asserts that he has been bestowed with a conscious mind to bring the world into order. This mindset justifies that rainforests aren?t meant to be havens for the diversity of Life, but to be razed and ranched for the Rally?s in Rochester. These farm fascists, whose goal is to plough every plot to perpetuate population, are accurately described as totalitarian agrarians. The swelling of this particularly destructive path has simply overrun the majority of the human race. Daniel Quinn adduces in his novel, Ishmael, that this path?s proponents are best described as the Takers. Takers guide their actions with the conviction that the Earth is meant to be harnessed and exploited for the advancement of man. Quinn suggests that the products of such a ?megalomaniac fantasy? of domination are societal ills such as: ?greed, cruelty, mental illness, crime, and drug addiction (147).? Those that are deeply rooted in the societies that harbor such humane digression justify their position by explaining that these ailments are the price we pay for progress. Not only have the destined digits of the Taker extended to every acre, apple, gem, or jewel of the Earth, but have also required the exploitation of it?s own brethren to obtain these commodities. The very structure of the Many political organizations throughout history profess their loyalty to a myriad of wholesome idioms, which justify their questionable actions. Pem Buck accounts in her novel, Worked to the Bone, that the
And not only do the The corporate world is a dazzling example of the full automation of humans, for their reference to employees ?Human Resource? can get no colder. Thus far I have been unsuccessful in locating a formal definition of the concept of totalitarian agrarianism, and in truth I?m not completely certain of what the term means. Hopefully by the end of this document it?s meaning and, more importantly, its consequences will be understood. Furthermore, I would like to present an alternative method of agrarianism for the United States and the world abroad. I suppose that a working definition is order. As described by W.B Bizzel, agrarianism is a ?political agitation or civil dissension arising from the dissatisfaction with the existing tenure of land.?
Ishmael ? world made for man ? world made for elite man ? Worked to the Bone. *brethren: this is where the stereotypes come in. To exploit a population you must alienate them, must make them different from others, so that only they will question their condition. It is the nature of the Taker and his destiny to collapse upon himself. Much of the ?civilized? world clings ideologies of laissez faire. Throughout history one can note that the product of such a policy will create corporate organization whose motives often supercede those of the political organization from which it was spawned. This in turn creates social rifts and deplorable socio-economic disparities. In respect to this condition, I cannot possibly accept the idea that a free market system is an expression of our ?free will? as human beings. It is the nature of a free market system to deprive the exploited of social improvements for which they?ve toiled. niddle Eastern notes, religious idioms) I believe it was the late 19th century American industrialist, Adam Smith, who first conceived the idea of specialization. In a sense, we have Mr. Smith to thank for the world?s gut wrenching economic disparities. Specialization is the devotion of an economic region, such a country, state, or individual factory, to a specific product or service. For example, the ingredients of a carbonated beverage are stewed at This Factory, and are then shipped to That Town?s bottling plant where the ingredients can be bottled and labeled for distribution. But, this example is one of small proportion. When applied to the economy of an entire country, specialization can reveal many consequences; positive and negative. While the citizens of the United States may benefit from a local?s increase in productivity resulting from specialization, citizens extraneous may suffer from an economic pinch. Marxism ?dismantled from the top? (Quinn, 247). Well, somebody?s got to do it.Well, do they? Why do low wage jobs exist? Because the hamburgers won?t flip themselves, damnit! We need em? for the proliferation Is this price we pay for the advancement of civilization? The Profession of guilt. As the option of opting out entirely is too isolationist for my taste of method, even I am not impervious to this vile status. I don?t mind lumping everyone in the United States into a generalization. If we stopped flipping burgers and produced more protein supplements and soy we could return the pastures to forest.
