I feel it important to keep in mind that the ‘privatization’ mantra that is now so detrimentally sweeping the globe draws on perspectives that hold planned obsolescence as a central engine to the overarching construct of constant growth.This sentence reads with barely a ripple, so benign, so like the old aphorism that still waters run deep.
Where did the amassing of wealth come from hundreds of years ago? What were the methodologies? What ARE the methodologies? We are in the backwash of a centuries old tsunami from an eruption of human narcissism intensifying among the technological/financial elite utterly blind what is being lost due to the full spectrum domination delusion.
Not unlike proposing dedication to solely a technological fix for climate change, humility has been cast as a weakness rather than the living perception of being part of a magnificent creation for/by which we have been endowed with a stunningly elegant resonance capacity called mind.
Vulnerability, like humility has been subjected to an intense colonization of the conceptual capacity and function of these linguistic approximations of living processes.
What happens when vulnerability is considered from the perspective of being on a threshold, where the vast potential for learning is poised for equilibrium required to take in the unfamiliar? It becomes a treasured condition that can and arguably MUST be cultivated. What does it require? Others. Unfamiliar others. The others’ treasures that unfold and arise in equilibrium quite beyond any ‘final frontier’.
Testing/privatization is imposition of mental ‘silos’ for the purpose of further siloing - because the mindset that advocates it can only configure its perspective from those already siloed criteria.
I’m reminded that the real meaning of art - say a Jackson Pollock - is a tracing, an artifact of a PROCESS. Look at the artifacts of Leonardo DaVinci, an individual who wrote backwards, whose designs and sketches were frequently unfinished and whose perspectives generated untold blossoming in countless areas of life.
How many children must be subjected to the backwash of knuckle-dragging failed theories of economic theory destroying the environment and natural capacity of human beings to engage our natural desires to step humbly and joyously into that vulnerability of exploration of meeting the challenges the system has unloaded on this elegant planet?
