Who Cares About (Deep) Ecology? A wild sex party, an apple and a garden

Unsuspecting Representative of Life on Earth

Dear Friends . . . have we really lost the plot? Regarding Deep Ecology: There is after all a simple heartfelt response to life, like when you are walking past the pet shop and you pop in there to be utterly seduced by the beauty by the magic, the wonder and the sheer joy of nature in the irresistible form of a small bunny. This experience is direct, personal and undeniably enchanting. You could say Bunny Cuddling is Deep Ecology 1.01  . . .who doesn’t love a cuddly bunny? Dr Quantum is a Bunny lover aided and abetted by an accomplice who is a serial bunny cuddler. What can ya do? Now . . .and i am warning you . . .please be advised, , this could get ugly.

Sadly the simple pleasures of life must share the human experience in a complex matrix. The big bad wolf seems never to be far away. Life is littered with the corpses of simple pleasures that became convoluted abstractions, ambiguous concepts, twisted ideals. Until next time sweet bunny of love. The shadows of the forest are calling. I speak here of course of the Malthusian Doctrine vs Deep Ecology. Well . . . you were warned. Yes . . .things are getting ugly. If this was an Alfred Hitchcock movie the suspenseful music would be starting.

The Reverend Thomas Malthus (1766-1834) was not one of those soul-singing joy-filled reverends of the Harlem Gospel Choir variety. Oh no. Quite the reverse. He was English, intellectual, an economic system theorist of his day. You might say he was white, uptight and out of sight. Sing it with me now! The Rev Malthus was well intentioned and well and truly imbued with the puritan ethic. Not what you would call a hip col swingin cat. Malthus’ main riff was basically a bit of a dirge, a drone. This flip cat was hooked on the down beat. And, he was like . . . a cube. Totally linear. Malthus’ philosophy went something like this:

As things improve in society and populations expand the capacity of life on Earth to support that growth will remain constant and thus shrink in proportion to human society. Situation: There’s not enough to go round. Get ready for famine, disease, catastrophe and death. So prepare to settle for less and straighten yourself in the ways of the Lord. This dear friends . . . is God’s way of teaching you a lesson. Hmmm. See what I mean about Malthus being on a downer?

Malthus . . .you’ve been working way too hard. Time for you to have a long holiday.

Hello God! . . .  Dr Quantum is ready to see you now, you can come in.

Ah yes! . . .Dear God of Love . . .my deep and abiding faith . . . is that you don’t dole out lessons of this Malthusian nature. So what’s up God?

Oh . . . is that so?!!! Well I am so glad you popped in. Oh you don’t say? Fascinating, absolutely fascinating. Huh! We must talk more often. Soooo illuminating. . . No! Not at all! Pop in any time (d’ya get it!?). . . .Sorry folks just having a word with the infinite about Malthus and how his historically located philosophy has been hijacked and twisted by the Machiavellian elites. Do you know what she said? Oh you’re not going to believe this! Well on second thoughts, maybe you are.

So here’s what God(dess) says about Malthus. He was a man of his time. The doctrine of limited resources was not a bad message as such to be injecting into the mind stream. And to be taken in context . . .please!The Machiavellian power elites have gone two ways with this. Firstly with one hand they pretend to reject the doctrine proclaiming loud and long that there are no limits. This neo-conservative rant is then picked up by the next level of shoe-shiners down-stream who think they are being really smart in a right wing creepy sort of way. Hello Tony Abbott. Which while true absolutely is not true within the closed and limited domain of Earth’s biosphere. Even a broken clock is right twice a day. Secondly with the other hand they are secretly preparing for the calamities to come, figuring on reduced population growth due to their own wicked/stupid ways, and using this agenda to further control populations with secret planning going on in behind-closed-door type meetings. Hello to the power elites. These feckers are a largely Godless lot who tend to see not at all past their own miserable “realism” and engage in nasty battles to carve up the world for the spoils of things like genetic engineering, cashing in on war and the distribution of goods and services. Just like the Mafia except bigger. And this of course is good for a burgeoning paranoid conspiracy theory industry. Hello to the paranoid conspiracy theorists. Things have gotten waaaaaaay out of control.

Can we just . . .take a moment to breathe . . . .in . . . .out. Relax, relax, relax.

You see . . .it’s all about proportion. As long as i get the biggest one then everything’s OK. But . . . seriously folks. Yes there are limits to how many trees you can chop down, there are limits to how much carbon dioxide you can pump into the atmosphere, there are limits to growth on the linear scale. There are limits to how many fish you can harvest before marine populations collapse. There are limits to growth. Yes that is true, when growth is measured in purely physical terms. But real growth is actually unlimited. Now here’s the thing . . .our current challenge is to redefine growth. There is more to it than how much stuff you can get your hands on and cram into that space under the stairs. In that regard, God isn’t teaching us hard lessons. These are the lessons we chose to learn when we came here. God didn’t force them on us. As a matter of fact this isn’t our natural home in the universe (talking about the physical universe we call home). We insisted, more or less that we wanted in. Something about a wild sex party, an apple and a garden. Now that we are here we do have to play the game. That’s why you come here . . .coz you want to play. It’s all a game. Apparently in God’s house there are many universes. As a matter of fact God(dess) is a master of improvisational jazz and an excellent dancer. Skilled in all styles. Yes a Tantric Yogi of the highest degree. Likes picnics, movies and walks on the beach. Great sense of humour. Likes painting toenails rainbow colours.

God really doesn’t mind what you do, but apparently you should mind. Welcome to the God of the New Age.

Malthus was a well intentioned man of his times. And now it’s time to move on. The universe IS unlimited, but our approach to LIFE has been . . .limited. Now it’s time to grow, to reach, to discover and to create, new ways of being. Which brings me to the nature lover’s deep delightDeep Ecology. Should be simple right? Bunnies are cuddly and so are trees . . .so hey, while you’re at it invite the spirit. Right? Ha ha ha ha! Wrong! Fail! Epic Fail! Bring up the Alfred Hitchcock music again. Because apparently . . . such appalingly naive behaviour plays right into the hands of the controlling elites. Deep ecology, i am told, is strictly for the birds. Wow.

Here’s how this piece of miscreant intellectualism goes . . .The absolutist dogma of pop-ecology is only rhetorically related to real scientific ecology. The mystical vagueness of so-called Deep Ecology does nothing for the real cause of ecology which must be rigorous, it must be scientific and above all without emotion. Furthermore my attachment to this childish form of nature love plays right into the hands of the ruling elites. These are the dark forces, the Machiavelian practitioners of realpolitik. My dancing in the woods with elves, faeries, bunnies and trees just plays right into the hands of the ruthless powers who are about to take control of the world and form a one-world government (subtext: with the dark prince as the ruler) Gosh.

Well that’s it! The gloves are coming off. Thos bastards aren’t going to stop Dr Quantum from cuddling Bunnies. Let them try and stop me. Ruling elites be damned. Those feckers have realley crossed the line this time. Listen . . . i was prepared to sit idly by while the ruling elites spliced genes into soybeans that means that the bacteria in my gut that jumped across from those genetically modified organisms would continue to produce insecticide INSIDE my body. Which measn MY BODY is now genetically poisoned, THANKS TO THE WORLD’S MOST HATED COMPANY. GUESS WHO? (to find out just google: the world’s most hated company) Hey . . .did i complain? Not a murmur out of me. I sat by and watched 2 and a half men while forking instant noodles into myself . . . meek as a little lamb.

So I am able to purchase cheap groceries from Coles & Wollies and cheap manufactured goods from K-Mart ex China funded by the bankruptcies of Australian food producers and billions of dollars worth of cheap Australian coal destined to increasingly pollute and warm the planet. Hey . . .Hey! Did I complain? Not much. But now . . . this, this is too much. Now I’m freakin mad as hell. So cuddling bunnies and hugging trees while singing to the God of the forest is just a naive distraction and what I really need to be wary of is the prince of darkness forming a one world government using bunny cuddling and the United Nations as a front. Shit. Why didn’t I see it sooner.

It’s all so clear now. Huh! I’m going to start blogging over with the errrr, Christian Right.

I think I am going to proclaim my dissent by putting it on a T-Shirt. It will read: I cuddle Bunnies so F*#K YOU!

That should get the message across clearly.

Firstly that is one cute bunny, although my first instinct isn’t to cuddle him but smother him with little kisses! Yeah, i Kiss Bunnies so F*#K YOU! And Dr. Q, thank you for another creative, passionate, and entertaining rant. IT’s always good to remember the impact we have in our world and to remember the great gift of our true nature, which is to see the beauty in our environment and desire to hold it, cuddle it, kiss it, bless it and attune to how to keep the balance.

I recently wrote a blog entry critiquing the Green environmental movement from a Marxist perspective. It covers the locavore and organic foods movement, deep ecology, permaculture, lifestyle politics (veganism, freeganism, etc.), ecofeminism, and “radical” environmentalism (Green anarchy, veganarchism, and anarcho-primitivism). I’d really like your feedback — comments, questions, or criticisms are welcome.

You have a lot to say. And I want to hear it. But you’re way too self-indulgent to be tracked. Too verbose. Too narcissistic.

What does this mean: “The left is shamelessly close to his frightful political position with it’s own orgy of deregulation and mass privatisation. ”

Did you mean “the right”?

Now don’t go flame on me. That would be too jejune.

Hi Willis. Hey I don’t think i would flame on you. Do you really think that is me? Now narcissistic I can handle. Perhaps narcissism is what all contemporary hipsters have to wrestle with. It is i believe the great illness of our times in the glamour saturated “Western civilization” I think that to be beyond narcissism one must be made of deeply un-corruptible moral stuff, and alas, that . . . I am not. Nevertheless one does make a concerted attempt to rise above the tsunami of banal and abominable content thrust at the citizen of the realm from, more or less every angle daily. Ability to receive and deal constructively with criticisms – objective feedback – is essential to any sustainable system. One of the outstanding characteristics of all tyrants is that they do not like and are not open to objective feedback AKA criticism. So please feel free. A conversation around same is even more welcome but alas so very rare in these narcissistic times. It seems all most “creative types” want to do is EXPRESS themselves. Listening has become a rare art form. Long live the evolution. And yes . . .I meant the LEFT – in this country anyway (Australia) the left has jumped onto Friedman’s bandwagon. The whole proposition of deregulation and privatisation has become a truth so widely accepted by the power elite that it has become increasingly difficult to find any intelligent debate about it. The Left wing in this country have privatised Power plants, the telecommunications industry and every single other thing they could get away with. Thanks for the retort
