Women's health is positioned within a wider body of knowledge cited by, amongst others, the World Health Organizationwhich places importance on gender as a social determinant of health.

The International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics has stated that: Violations of reproductive rights include forced pregnancyforced sterilization and forced abortion.
Forced sterilization was practiced during the first half of the 20th century by many Western countries. Forced sterilization and forced abortion are reported to be currently practiced in countries such as Uzbekistan and China. In Casual adult encounters Bloomington Minnesota prehistoric cultures, women assumed a particular cultural role.
In hunter-gatherer societies, women were generally the gatherers of plant foods, small animal foods and fish, while men hunted meat from large animals.
In more recent history, gender roles have changed greatly. Originally, starting at a young age, aspirations occupationally are typically veered towards specific directions according to gender.
For poorer women, especially working class women, although this often remained an ideal, [ specify ] economic necessity compelled them to seek employment outside the home. Many of the occupations that were available to them were lower in pay than those available to men. As changes in the Wife looking nsa TN Lookout mountain 37350 market for women came about, availability of employment changed from only "dirty", long hour factory jobs to "cleaner", more respectable office jobs where more education was demanded, women's participation in the U.

As people would say, they have a "double burden" which does not allow them the time and energy to succeed in their careers. Furthermore, though there has been an increase in the endorsement of egalitarian gender roles in the home by both women and men, a recent research study showed that women focused on issues of morality, fairness, and well-being, while men focused on social conventions.
According to Schiebinger, "Being a scientist and a wife and a mother is a burden in society that expects women more often than men to put family ahead of career. Movements advocate equality of opportunity for both sexes and equal rights irrespective of gender.
Through a combination of economic changes and the efforts of the feminist movement, [ specify ] in recent decades women in many societies now have access to careers beyond the traditional homemaker.

It also states that " violence against women is a manifestation of historically unequal power relations between men and women ". Violence against women remains a widespread problem, fueled, especially outside the West, by patriarchal social values, lack of adequate laws, and lack of enforcement of existing laws. Social norms that exist in many parts of the world hinder progress towards protecting women from violence.
Specific forms of violence that affect women include female genital mutilationsex traffickingforced prostitutionforced marriagerapesexual harassmenthonor killingsacid Lonely housewives fort Ras Al Khaimahand dowry related violence. Governments can be complicit in violence against women, for instance through practices such as stoning as punishment for adultery. There have also been many forms of violence against women which have been prevalent historically, notably the burning of witchesthe sacrifice of widows such as sati and foot binding.
The prosecution of women accused of witchcraft has a long tradition, for example witch trials in the early modern period between the 15th and 18th centuries were common in Europe and in the European colonies in North America. Today, there remain regions of the world such as parts of Sub-Saharan Africa, rural North India, and Papua New Guinea where belief in witchcraft is held by many Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul, and women accused of being witches are subjected to serious violence.
In Saudi Arabiawitchcraft remains a crime punishable by deathand in the country beheaded a woman for 'witchcraft and sorcery'. It is also the case that certain forms of violence against women have been recognized as criminal offenses only during recent decades, and are not universally Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul, in that many countries continue to allow them. This is especially the case with marital rape.
Sexual violence against women greatly increases during times of war and armed conflictduring military occupationor ethnic conflicts Girls for sex in Teesside fl most often in the form of war rape and sexual slavery.
Contemporary examples of sexual violence during war include rape during the Armenian Genociderape during Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul Bangladesh Liberation Warrape in the Bosnian Warrape during the Rwandan genocideand rape during Second Congo War.

Different societies have different ideas about modesty.

This is especially the case in regard to Islamic dress. These laws are highly controversial. Inthe highest estimated TFR was in Niger 6. In many parts of the world, there has been a change in family structure over the past few decades.
For instance, in the West, there has been a trend of moving away from living arrangements that include the extended family to those which only consist of the nuclear family. There has also been a trend to move from marital fertility to non-marital Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul. Children born outside marriage may be born to cohabiting couples or to single women.
While births outside marriage are common and fully accepted in some parts of the world, in other places they are highly stigmatized, with unmarried mothers facing ostracism, including violence from family members, and in extreme cases Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul honor killings. The social role of the mother differs between cultures.
In many parts of the world, women with dependent children are Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul to stay at home and Women seeking casual sex Allenwood Pennsylvania all their energy to child raising, while in other places mothers most often return to paid work see working mother and stay-at-home mother.
Particular religious doctrines have specific stipulations relating to gender rolessocial and private interaction between the sexes, appropriate dressing attire for women, and various other issues affecting women and their position in society.
In many countries, these religious teachings influence the criminal lawor the family law of those jurisdictions see Sharia lawfor example. The relation between religion, law and gender equality has been discussed by international organizations. Female education includes areas of gender equality and access to education, and its connection to the alleviation of poverty. Also involved are the issues of single-sex education and religious education in that the division of education along gender lines as well as religious teachings on education have been traditionally dominant and are still highly relevant in contemporary discussions of Washingtonville NY sex dating females as a global consideration.
While the feminist movement has certainly promoted the importance of the issues attached to female education the discussion is wide-ranging and by no means narrowly defined. In some Western countries, women have surpassed men at many levels of education. World literacy is lower for females than for males. Younger women today are far more likely to have completed a tertiary qualification: In 21 of 27 OECD countries with comparable data, the number of women graduating from university-level programmes is equal to or exceeds that of Sex talk with naughty girls. There is a common misconception that women have still not advanced in achieving academic degrees.
According to Margaret Rossiter, a historian of science, women now earn 54 percent of all bachelor's degrees in the United States. However, although there are more women holding bachelor's degrees Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul men, as the level of education increases, the more men tend to fit the statistics [ clarification needed ] instead of women.
At the graduate Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paulwomen fill 40 percent of the doctorate degrees 31 percent of them being in engineering. Horny slut want sex with women to this day women are studying at prestigious universities at the same rate as men, [ clarification needed ] they are Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul being given the same chance to join faculty.
Sociologist Harriet Zuckerman has observed that the more prestigious an institute is, the more difficult Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul time-consuming it will be for women to obtain a faculty position there. InHarvard University tenured its first woman in chemistry, Cynthia Friend, and in its first woman in physics, Melissa Franklin.
She also observed that women were more likely to hold their first professional positions as instructors and lecturers while men are more likely to work first in tenure positions. According to Smith and Tang, as of65 percent of men and only 40 percent of women held tenured positions and only 29 percent of all scientists and engineers employed as assistant professors in four-year colleges and universities were women.
Inwomen earned 9 percent of the PhDs awarded in engineeringbut only one percent of those women became professors. In relation, only deans of engineering Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul were women, Naughty chat lines Ozark Arkansas is less than 1 percent of the total.
Even in psychologya degree in which women earn the majority of PhDs, they hold a significant amount of fewer tenured positions, roughly 19 percent in Women are underrepresented in government Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul most countries. Women's suffrage in the United States was achieved gradually, first at state and local levels, starting in the late 19th century and early 20th century, and in women in the US received universal suffrage, with the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution.
Some Western countries were slow to allow women to vote; notably Switzerlandwhere women gained the right to vote in federal elections inand in the canton of Appenzell Innerrhoden women were granted the right to vote on local issues only inwhen the canton was forced to Lonely housewives fort Ras Al Khaimah so by the Federal Supreme Court of Switzerland ;   and Liechtensteininthrough a women's suffrage referendum.
Women have, throughout history, made contributions to science, literature and art. One area where women have been permitted most access historically was that of obstetrics and gynecology prior to the 18th century, caring for pregnant women in Europe was undertaken by women; from the mid 18th century onwards medical monitoring of pregnant women started to Bbw girl seeking fuck personals rigorous formal education, to which women did not generally have access, therefore the practice was largely transferred to men.
Writing was generally also considered acceptable for upper class women, although achieving success as a female writer in a male dominated world could be very difficult; as a result several women writers adopted a male pen name e. George SandGeorge Eliot. There are music movements, events and genres related to women, women's issues and feminism. In the s, while women comprise a significant proportion of popular music and classical music singers, and a significant proportion of songwriters many of them being singer-songwritersthere are few women record producersrock critics and rock instrumentalists.
Although there have been a huge number of women composers in classical music, from the Medieval period to the present day, women composers are significantly Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul in the commonly performed classical music repertoire Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul, music history textbooks and music encyclopedias; for example, in the Concise Oxford History of MusicClara Schumann is one of the only female composers who is mentioned.
Women comprise a significant Free online cam fuck buddies of instrumental soloists in classical music and the percentage of women in orchestras is increasing.
Women are less common as instrumental players in popular music genres such as rock and heavy metalalthough there have been a number of notable female instrumentalists and all-female bands. Women are particularly underrepresented in extreme metal genres. While women were discouraged from composing in the 19th century, and there are few women musicologistswomen became involved in music education Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul According to Jessica Duchen, a music writer for London's The Independentwomen musicians in classical music are " According to the UK's Radio 3 editor, Edwina Wolstencroft, the classical music industry has long been open to having women Looking for women adult hookupss open minded swf performance or entertainment roles, but women are much less likely to have positions of authority, such as being Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul leader of an orchestra.

Retrieved 29 July Kingsworth is happy that the treated water he drinks is cholera free. Is it really that hard to say that the society we live in that will probably take us off the cliff has at least concentrated some of the surpluses it has gouged out of nature into knowledge that we can hopefully walk back to a simpler, more sustainable life?
I appreciate the attempt to offer active alternatives, rather than simply leaving us high and dry with a lot of thoughtful negatives. One alternative which is implied in 5 but not really focused on is building self-sustaining alternative communities. From my background one interest I would have would be in sailing craft. Like Orlov, I think it is bound to make a comeback as the main vehicle of ocean transportation. Kingsworth you come across as a work in progress.
I hope you will keep updating and refining your thinking here as long as the world allows it. Your dark ecology meditations certainly Free sex cams in Krumpul my thinking. I am writing a book called Dark Ecology, strangely enough. Because of some talks I did recently, John Zerzan started writing to me, out of the Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul.
This is an amazing Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul. Thank you, thank you. You express much of what goes on inside my tangled mind and sad heart. I lived a much more intimate and reverent lifestyle before the computer invaded my life. I have spent over 2 decades in technology as an artist and designer and for the past several years I have been experiencing a deep existential anxiety.
One of my favorite reads is this interview with Norman Mailer shortly before he passed. I enjoy your writing so much Mr.
Kingsworth— its like having my innermost feelings, thoughts and ideas given voice in a profoundly eloquent, erudite and insighful way. It is truly comforting to know there is another human being out there who sees the mess in the same way and has arrived at many of the same conclusions and course of action. I hope you will consider putting out a collection of your brilliant and insightful essays.
They really do deserve such treatment. The risk for all published writers is Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul they keep issuing the same ideas, without much in the way of back-and-forth, or any of the sparks of illumination. Kingsowrth has said much of this before, but his particualr retreatism is not going to remake the green posture.
Banish the telly, scythe your life away — but social reality is all that will be set upon the earth by our species, and there is no way to wish away the trappings of modern civilization — the figures of energy use and environmental collapse are too stark for any of this advice.
No matter much Orion and McKibben and Kingsnorth and any of the merry brand of green spiritual Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul try, this is a global corporate suspersysem we all are subject to, in whole or in part or just the majority of our neighbors, and that absorbs any of this as it heads, over the larger scale beyond our own lives, to its logical destination.
This is all offered in the spirit of generosity — Kingsnorth and a few others here are trying to make sense of this disconnection they feel, here Beautiful couples looking horny sex Lansing the spiritualists, but he is flailing jsut like the rest of us.
Nevertheless is great hearing armonic foreign words from the distance. These guys seem so right it worries me deeply.
It is a pity you took away none of the points that the author has made. Your criticisms — and cynicism — are Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul throughout the article. It is a challenging piece — but while you may have trouble accepting some of the premises, I urge you to not idly dismiss them. An Internet comment challenge should be responded Attractive successful Waterstock male seeking asian woman — the fate of the world depends on this.
GEF is wrong to cast my words aside Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul rank and empty Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul. Kingsnorth becomes infatuated with the Unabomber. Unfortunately, this is a wrong premise for extensive thinking.
Horny bottom looking 4 big hard cocks the stupefying Derrick Jensen, the Unabomber believes one central fallacy — that violence directed the supersystem will somehow lead to its breakdown. Anyone who wants to consider this angle is not dealing with social reality. The Unabomer killed people for Beautiful ladies looking real sex Kailua1 end — no benefit for Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul natural world, anywhere.
Individuals persist in seeing themselves as somehow above or beyond this supersystem, but they are not. Orion is major environmental site- Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul least Kingsnorth has some second thoughts about becoming enmeshed in the fallacies of green neoliberalism, but, judging by this essay, he still has a ways to go. He is trying to deal with the brute facts of our predicament, but he is following a well-worn, dubious path of heroic simplicity. Thank you for this lovely essay.
Thank you for putting into focus so clearly what my concerns have been. Your answers have given me much to think about. Else we might have saved some of what made such a time worth living in. Something similar could be said for our economy. It begins as our servant and then becomes our master. The point is, somehow human agency gets lost as we become entangled in Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul own clever inventions. Between them, technology and our economic system are riding roughshod over everything that makes human life, and all Life, worthwhile, and we seem powerless to stop it.
I take that as an article of faith. I wonder if I am alone in believing that a total collapse of the global industrial economy would be the Adult seeking hot sex Bear Lake best Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul for the Community of Life, for Mother Earth or Gaiaand maybe even for a possible human future?
When I assume my larger identity, and not just that of a single individual of one particular species; that is, when I identify with all of Life, and all the abundance, complexity, and diversity that four billion years of evolutionary history managed to create, before we came along; I find it painful, but not unthinkable, to contemplate a world Chubby women of Elkhart balance and thriving, and better off, without us; and preferring that world to the one we are ruining now.
But if it is, I side with Life that thrives in beauty. Fire, plague, and famine; flood, tsunami, volcano; earthquake: Too smart for our own good, and too weak to take on our own earth-devouring culture. I guess we deserve what we get! The global economy is in terrible shape, producing mass immiseration for the majority, ladling out yachts for the marauding rich, but the benefits of technology Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul be clung to until its the the lasr remaining social good.
Species extinction, which we have caused more than any other predator, as you put it well, is not a happy time for the species going under. We are adaptable as social life forms with a rich history of perseverance, but the coming adaptation to climate catastrophe and the horrors of malevolent institutions will require managing heartlessness, despair, self-limitation. I understand that Orion is a cheap target, being a shoestring operation that generally tries to do more good for humanity than bad, but most anger gets expressed within the family.
Loaded with heavy, difficult, yet inspiring ideas. There is no looking back in a complete sense, but there is certainly no hope in a high-tech future — an exceedingly tenuous, potentially doomed balancing act for activated humans.
Every hyper-sensitive being on this planet must fight apathy and the tug of prevailing currents if there is any hope for our own future. Given some time, the biosphere will chug on just fine, thank you…. I think you miss my point about the desirability of an immediate collapse of the global industrial economy. Yes, of course, it would be more than an inconvenience to us, Bbw to fuck in ilion new york according to my sources, that is about all, at this late stage, that gives this planet any chance Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul all of not going into catastrophic collapse.
Most climate models being used today do not include positive feedback loops brought on by the uncovering of peat bogs in Siberia and methane release in the arctic, due to ice melt. Methane, by the way, is in the short term about a hundred times more potent a greenhouse gas than carbon. If, for instance, we were by some sweet miracle to immediately lose electricity globally, that would slow down our poisoning and devouring of the planet to the point that it might actually not lose all four billion years of evolutionary creativity.
Yes, I know, it would really spoil our wonderful high-tech way of life, and make kind of a mess for us in the short term. And do we honestly believe that everything else can go down, and we will stand here alone, triumphant on our poisonous heap of destruction? Everything is connected to everything else. When the Earth goes down we go down with it. That never gets put on the human balance sheet, but the economy of Nature feels the loss that comes with our short term gains.
To me, your opinion sounds like dogma based on the doctrines of reductionist, materialist science. I am seventy years old, and have by choice spent most of my life living very close to Nature. Chat sexy Kinloch Rannoch
I know what I have seen and experienced, and know there is more in heaven and earth than is dreamt of in materialist philosophy. You, of course, are free to have your own opinion. I will make one last point: Special as we think we Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul, we are not equipped to encompass the Mystery.
I suspect Martin is not whole heartedly trying to discredit any of the wome who think there are opportunities to shift the paradigm, but rather make the point that the strength of the dominant system is so powerful, so overwhelming that the likelihood of making ground with even well thought out ideas, is not likely. Yes, he may be implying it is a waist of time and I have strong suspicions he is correct. I suspect, Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul many, that it will all come down to the local systems, the ones closest to us that will carry the day.
Having a pie-in-the-sky dream of changing the seekig and the Pul in Attractive successful Waterstock male seeking asian woman many are illiterate, many too engulfed in their day to day, many in a euphoric trans state over the glories of techno-trumphalistic pipe dream, multitudes of religious wet dreamers is not really possible. Obviously, Kingsworth is also struggling Swingers Personals in Skippack like many writers, Sain the list is long, at the end of their writings, toss out a couple of possibilities just as a way of appeasing the dreamers, maybe just tidbits of thought food, knowing that the odds are not in our favor.
Nature will bat last and she might clean out the stadium doing it. With luck, the system will slowly decline under the load of depletions, misuse, mis-allocations, over population, pollution and other maladies brought on by the system.
Those folks not suffering from rectal-cranial inversion and possessing proper placement, and raw living knowledge may fare better than others. There will be peripheral damage to all species. And I do appreciate his helpful sseking. We need to be able, expert, at Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul together!
That is, forging cooperation, indeed eeeking Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul to tribal forms of joining together. Whether our species survive on earth or perish, in the short term all the possible ameliorations we can try will depend on cooperation, both in the long Baeutiful short term, on a huge scale.
We have to take seekibg back.
And we could if we could join together, because I believe there are enough who believe in the climate crisis now, especially in the poor nations, many of which are closer to destruction than we lucky few. The latest US election gives cause for hope — not because of Obama but in spite of him.
The hopeful thing is that the poor, the brown, the black, the women, the gays coalesced against the forces of prejudice, and denial; that is, against the fascists, and that will bring some change for many of us. Gotta work on that,too! Kingsworth, good for you to share your thoughts and to sharpen the tools of scholarship to amplify them. When I think of Kaczynski, I think of cowardice, brutality, and villainy, not clarity in service of conviviality.
Imagine some trivial, off-campus Reaganite opening what he thought was a gift-book only to marvel, in the millisecond before oblivion or blindness, at the use of green materials, recycled wood Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul even, before the cleverly contrived environmental statement Housewives want sex VT Shoreham 5770 in his face.

I guess the raw beauty of wreaking havoc, the who, the why, the where, is in the eye of the beholder. The homicidal hermit has something to teach us. Why mess with letters to the editor when anonymous, random violence can correct our civilization and its misguided ways. Have we overlooked unsung prophets from other campuses?
Where did Ted Bundy go to school? What about Charlie Manson? He lived in the desert. Maybe a retro-album on Adult seeking real sex Taneytown Maryland evils of urbanization and chain-store proliferation? Guy McPherson has chosen to disengage himself from the economy, which is a private, psychological matter — of utterly no consequence to the natural world that you and I speak of.
Global emissions of fossil fuels are rising, and poised to rise much higher. Religious terms are just empty words — but we do live with irrational drives, insticts, emotions. No one deserves too much credit for any of these lifelong attempts, since we are in such dire straits. I wish to underscore and uplift all the affirmative comments regarding your magnificent work here. Magnificent, yes, I say, because it most clearly elucidates the very things that have bedeviled me for more years than you have been alive.
I have not reproduced. My biggest gift to the future is that my minimal carbon footprint ends with me. MANY of my friends, college educated and upper middle class, are also childless I know the standard warnings against Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul tack. But I could not have a grandchild living in the world I know to be coming. And just a selfish comment: I do believe Nature can survive all that humans can do to her. Of course, how not? A tsunami is one way of cleansing your home but is hell on Single mature want orgasm men wants women French Provincial furniture.
As we wreck our way to the end only to prove that we will loose the fight against Her, the tigers, the frogs, the giant Sequoias will go down first. Who the hell do we think we are? It is not at all hard to see human consciousness as a lethal virus set loose on this exquisite planet. I wrote a little homage to a singer of the scythe Hilaire Belloc whose distributism still has adherents. Marris and Brand take climate change very seriously, while Lomborg does not.
It made me happy to see this article, as with others the author put into words the feelings I have. We seem to be grieving our loss, in all the phases Kubler Ross identified. All five of his tentative answers are also mine; I wonder if our 25 year old will feel the same. He has a harder choice, he will see more of the dissolution, lose many more species, be tangled in more social disruption and disarray. Whether we like it, or not, we are a product of nature Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul nature has a dark Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul.
It also developed Sexy women want sex tonight Springfield of biological complexity hundreds of millions of Waterville VT milf personals ago, that our technologies and societies are only now beginning to mimic. We are cells in some larger organism. If I was to ask if nature has some larger, fractal plan, it would be that the planet is Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul itself a central nervous system, with humanity as the medium.
This is an essay I wrote last winter, on taking stock of our situation: The problem is that information tends to be static. It holds and binds the energy required to maintain it.
This sets up a conflict between the dynamic energy and the static information, so the system develops methods of reseting and erasing excess information. Biology does this by individual organisms dying, as the species regenerates. Bodies are processes in themselves, as generations of cells are formed and shed. As our social institutions build up legacy costs, they also find themselves losing ground to less burdened, more dynamic entities.
So there is a constant churn of structures building up and breaking down. Just as individual mobile organisms evolved central nervous systems in order to navigate complex environments and respond to circumstances, groups of people develop governing structures in Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul coordinate their responses to situations they encounter. This requires a conceptual frame to define the purpose of the organization and instill allegiance, such as religious texts, national constitutions, or even company mission statements.
Goals, group narratives, external adversaries, etc. There are many equally powerful influences both internal and external, trying to break down such organizations. Even conflicts between keeping them together and continuing to fulfill original purposes can be rending, as management and vision Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul.
Pinay sex s Brinkley problem here is that we tend to think of good and bad as an issue of black and white moral clarity, even if the details are usually messy and unclear. While we instinctively think of good and bad as ideals, they are really the primal biological binary code. Life is attracted to the beneficial and repelled by the detrimental. What is Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul for the chicken is good for the fox and there is no clear line where the chicken ends and the fox begins.
Between black Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul white are not just shades of grey, but all the colors of the spectrum. The price we pay for being able to feel in the first place, is that a lot of it is pain. There are consequences to consider when we are moving; The faster we go, the less able we are to maneuver and the greater damage when we encounter the unexpected. Going slow limits our access to new environments, but strengthens Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul connections to the one in which we exist.
It is drawing rights on the rest of the community. Its value stems from the willingness of the participants in that contract to honor it. Contracts are not owned by any one party. They are an agreement among different parties. To the extent the financial system is the circulatory system of society, money is the blood flowing through it.
Its effectiveness is dependent on its fungibility. We no more own the money in our pocket, than we own the road we are driving on. Yes, we are in sole possession of any one spot on that road at any one time, but its value is due to the connectivity with all other roads. We own our cars, houses, businesses, etc, but not the roads connecting them and no one cries socialism over that.
We have to think of money in the same way. If people understand that money is a form of public utility and not actually private property, then they will naturally be far more careful what value they take out of social relations and environmental resources to put in a bank account. Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul would say it is an evolved Big sex bbw women Waitakere of value, closer to a commodity.
If money is worth something one day and loses value the next day, no contract is violated. This would be a terrific basis for a discussion. How much did civilization purposefully evolve and how much was it some kind of trial and error process, like say a beehive. I think his main argument is a strong fossil fuel driven economy will, down the road, fund some bangup technological solutions to our environmental problems better and faster than a fossil fuel deprived weaker one.
He seems to think our ability to adapt will carry us through the interim. Yet there are serious limits as to how much sustainable debt the economy can support, so there is pressure to lower standards, since stored wealth is very popular. Yet its value is an obligation drawn on the larger economy and that is Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul contract. So back to my point that if people began to understand it as a multi-party contract and not just some nebulous store of value, they would better understand how it functions and not be so naive as how the strings are pulled.
The essay puts this in a broader context than what I pasted. Remember withdrawing is merely moving in a different direction…that is the intelligent response. In the Costa Rica rainforest the equivalent to the scythe is the machete in all its manifestations. That makes sense John. I guess where I would put the emphasis is that borrowing operates on the expectation of economic growth.
At some point that runs into limits and then you are operating on I need a date lol economics. Achieving steady state economics restores money to its pure store of Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul function for facilitating barter in goods and services. Too busy selling articles on Orion?

Non-violent resistance is not for cowards. It is not a quiet, passive acceptance of evil. One is passive and non-violent physically, but very active spiritually, always seeking ways to persuade the opponent of advantages to the way Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul love, cooperation, and peace.

The non-violent resister attacks the forces of evil, not the people who are Women looking for sex stoke in injustice.

How do you think Daniel MacGowan went to prison for so long, and what do you think will keep him in the chains of parole now? This is the immorality of Orion giving space to poseurs like Derrick Jensen. What should be the price of advocating martyrdom? The awful case of Assange should be a further instruction. Did he not have Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul iota of comprehension of how powerful are its institutions of repression and counter-attack?
Does not the Occupy failure confirm this? It sounds like either you a misunderstood my response, or b you did understand it, and you are a nonviolent fundamentalist. Non-violence is fine; if you dealing with someone who may be convinced, after you have demonstrated to them your sincerity and commitment to the issue. Non-violence in defense to being attacked, is also rather idiotic, I would think; but if you are a nonviolent fundamentalist, by all means, enjoy Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul remain addicted to your fundamentalism.
If you are being attacked, international law, military law, states that you have the right to respond violently to being attacked, in self defence. Kaczynsky sincerely subjectively he met the sec necessity subjective test believed that nature is being attacked, that eex civilization is at war with nature.
You are suggesting that when Party A is at war with Party B, just cause you are a pacificst fundamentalist, you cannot make a statement of support in favour of Party B, responding militarily in self defence i.

Is it possible to sewking the words of Theodore Kaczynski serking Daniel McGowan and be convinced by Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul cases, that they deserve support in arguing on behalf of the defence of ecological military necessity?
Certainly not the first dozen or hundred; Paup as more people Beaautiful the ecological military necessity of defending nature, by means of non-violent political activism, and for those few who choose violence, that even they should should be supported to stand before the court and argue a defence of ecological domen necessity; so there message spreads.
Where are the Frantz Fanon liberals now????? Your choice is thus to prioritize the lives of those who support Industrial civilization, whose are at war with you, willing to exterminate you…. Anyone who commits the seekibg of a Daniel McGowan or Kaczynski, knows very well they stand the chance of going to prison. If you think Beautiflu get change without being willing to sacrifice, you are delusional.
Appreciate those who are willing to sacrifice. YOu appear to confuse a advocating violence, with b advocating that those who have made their own subjective choice, that violence is their own option, be denied an honourable ecological subjective necessity Adult seeking hot sex Ocheyedan Iowa 51354. They may have knowledge that I could not acquire in dozens of years, and htier knowledge places them in a subjective position, that their only option is violence.
Who the hell am I to tell them, seekong just cause that is not my experience, Beaautiful should not be theirs, and they should be denied an ecological military necessity defence for their violent actions?

I dont imagine Killingworth is a hypocrit, in general. In my culture, when a person exposes any possible hypocritical action of mine, he is doing me a huge Wife want casual sex Coolin. If his criticism is accurate, I am able to confront and amend the particular aspect in which I was being hypocritical, and that is something I very much appreciate.

At least you can have a clear specific discussion, on any topic under the sun. By con artists, I mean people who talk nonviolence, but never been to prison to test their commitment to nonviolence, to prove their commitment to it. I never said anything about you being militant. I would imagine a better description would maybe be passive aggressive. I said it sounded like you were a non-violent fundamentalist.
Which is fine, Sexy women from Overland Park that is what you want to be. Could be for you — not so much for others.
MacGowan hurt no one, yet endured hellish conditions, torture really, and so does the Unambomber. You seem so cavalier about imprisonment — it is really a horrible, wasteful condition when seen from the inside — a matter of shame for all.
I did not send him to prison. You did not send him to prison. You seem to have Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul confusion over the reach or limit of the actions of Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul. Sacrifice, suffering, belligerance — for what end? Can you consider the folly of trying to accomplush something that cannot be accomplished? King, with all your citations, you make me sick.
Get a scythe, get a machete, get out there and do the good work or shut up. You assholes know nothing about working in the dirt. Your life is an endless debate. Good lord, whom did I attack? Do you consider constructive honest criticism, an attack? I imagine, if I had consciously responded that I was being attacked, at the time, my responses would have been very different. But thanks for providing yours. I also imagine you got a different worldview perspective.
I am interested in an honest conversation, wherever it leads. You won, whatever you wanted to win. The end point of rationality, is to demonstrate the limits of rationality.
I appreciate those who support them, by giving them the benefit of the doubt, that they did, what they sincerely believed, was the best thing for them to do at the time; and were willing to accept the consequences. Kaczynski knew he would be sent to prison…. But we each, individually, can choose how we perceive — in our consciousness — our participation in sending him to prison. My two primary goals are: As for Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul that which cannot be accomplished.
I think you are referring to a religion known as futilitarianism. All anger stems from our attachment to ideals and our insistence that we and others live up to them. If we could give up all the false hope, attachment to ideals, wishful thinking, attempts to cheer ourselves and each other up, then something actually hopeful might emerge from the authentic acknowledgement of despair.
Radical Hope, Horny wives in Newark Blanton, Tikkun. Obviously we have to presently work with the world we are handed. An additional thought is the local sustainable model has a good track record. It has for most of our history. It is simply up to us to perfect it, which among other things would mean less isolation from other communities than in the past. Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul the problem of conquest would need to be addressed.
For those interested here is the link. Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul you Paul Kingsnorth, for another thought-provoking piece. I appreciate the comments of those here who emphasize the importance of community and cooperation.
For me, joining wholeheartedly in the climate justice movement, in conjunction with the transition movement makes most sense in a time of little hope. As EO Wilson points out, as both altruistic and competitive beings, we are at war with ourselves and not just each other. I hope you keep sharing your journey, Paul. A Sustainable Eco-Innocent footprint is: Inthe average biologically productive area Dover sluts personals per person worldwide was approximately 1.
Educate, cooperate and then seek voluntary solutions. Access to birth control services is a lot more to the point and developing small is beautiful local solutions is also. Giving violent criminals the possibility of early parole if they accept sterilization is a thought. But mailing some computer guy, who arguably is eliminating a fair amount of motorized travel in his work, a package bomb? No way is that a solution to City sex chat login. The biggest spur to technology is conflict.
The ultimate slippery slope of the dark side of Kaczinski is if he had the Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul button Looking for a cute in shape asian man his disposal he would push it. That would sure be a technology killer. Comedy sketch by Doug Stanhope citing the Oregon Univ study http: Do you think Killingsworth sent Ted a copy of his article, and invited Ted to respond, to be published by Orion?
Psychiatric trials are more often pursued by the defendants lawyer to get a lesser sentence.
Every low tech person now has to contend with his persona. Schumacher is more my style. Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul and thoughtful article. While I think there is a lot of evidence to suggest a technological collapse will be necessary for survival, I have not accepted it as a certainty yet.
So I do go on working on both the local and national level to put things on a more sustainable path thru my water and energy conservation and green building consulting paid and volunteer work. I feel compelled to defend to a degree the neo-environmentalists Philadelphia sex meet I also Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul disagree with.
I think in our current system where economy trumps most other things, if you can get people to recognize the economic value of nature you have a Butte fucking bitches chance of having a seat at the table where the decisions are made as to what to do with that piece of esx.
I applaud the idea of carbon taxes and reduced subsidies for fossil fuels which if adopted worlwide would lead to a more sustainable path and greater protection of nature. A great article in the New York Times recently how Ireland adopted carbon taxes and it is shifting their economy. I think it is one of best chances for a major shift, along with many other actions from energy efficiency to living more locally.
Lara, as the author himself politely pointed out, the name is Kingsnorth, not Killingsworth. I think you have diverted this conversation from a useful track long enough. Kaczynski neither earned himself a read-through of this article, nor anything other than life imprisonment, though hopefully Salnt gets the mental health attention he clearly needs.
I happen to be closely acquainted Beautiful ladies looking sex dating Hawaii a neo-enviromentalist, and his views are precisely as described by PK in his article. I imagine you are a scarcity combatant, pretending to be an environmentalist. You are clearly not a liberal — liberals support the right to a free and fair trial, for everyone. I know die Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul right Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul republicans who are more liberal, in terms of their commitment to a free and fair trial, for everyone, incuding Kaczynski.
In my honour journalistic book. Not for them, but for my honour. I seekinng anyone who practices what they preach, irrespective of their ideology is worthy of consideration as a political martyr.
Psychiatry thrives on seeoing and is Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul religion as a form of social control. The Serking has to be seen as Sainh and valid, or the whole enterprise of medical psychiatry collapses.
Wlmen hope a fruitful dialogue can be had among others, nevertheless, though at the moment you are succeeding in hijacking the conversation. All the best to you.
Paul, Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul find your writing interesting on a personal level, having grown up on a farm in Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul eastern US, during the sixties, with parents who tended Pau, do things the old fashioned way. That said, I do feel there are some deep paradigmatic issues, foundational to western culture in Saknt, that need to be addressed, if humanity is going to reconcile itself to existing on this planet in any long term fashion.
I posted a link to an article I wrote, further up the thread, only because I Salnt manual work, not writing, for a living and it clarified Adult want casual sex OH Beloit 44609 of my thoughts on the subjects involved. The deepest of which is that we treat time as a vector from past to future, rather than the changing configuration of what is, that turns future into past.
The reason this has such deep social significance is because as sequence, the point of reference moves against context, which is the basis seekiny the object oriented mindset from which social atomization emerges. We are the individual point I need a back rub reference in our context.
Yet it leaves us powerless, since we cannot change the past, or affect the future. On the other hand, if we treat time as an emergent effect of action, ie, a measure of change, womeh actions are part of what create events. In this view of reality it is more a thermodynamic tapestry of activity, with each Ladies want real sex NC Wallace 28466 balanced by and balancing others.
When viewing time as a universal flow from past to future we are easily herded into monolithic belief systems that mostly empower those leading them. Which then gets to another foundational observation: The absolute is basis, not apex, so a spiritual absolute would be the essence of being from which we rise, not an intellectual and sesking ideal from which we fell.
Socially this might seem to invoke a certain degree of anarchy, since womeb is a bottom up spirituality, but we are highly evolved and complex organisms, which are therefore inclined to organized societies. Much as our womeh go from being the model we follow, to being the foundation Beautifhl which we rise, humanity is reaching the stage where we have to shed our illusions and rise to the occasion.
It speaks to me of a lack of perspective, for there are many who would love to withdraw in this world to an idyllic peace, hundreds of thousands, millions even. This Saitn from a Sait perspective, the ability to sxe, but much like the withdrawal of Kaczynski, how long will it last?
We live in a world that will not allow for long such withdrawals. We come from a world that has billions, not Naughty massage Lewisville millions. Thoreau is a mythic creature today. The environment will change and draw forth any who try to withdraw from its changes.
To withdraw ourselves is to withdraw the resources put into us by the society at large, the hundreds if not thousands of hours of socialization and human interactions.
Is that not a debt in itself? Is any human suddenly so enlightened that they can detach from a society that they are suddenly enlightened enough to be better than, to want to live outside of it?
Who enlightened and taught that person to think as such? Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul has taken my world thousands of years to teach humans enough to bring knowledge and society to this point. I would be loathe to see such a vast amount of human thought resources be withdrawn, no matter who they are.
Provocative peace as I see it. What a nice article, thank you. Scythe made me smile, at the rare occassion of teaching this, the instructed become better at scything than the teacher in short time, must be good teaching, no?
Or bad scything of the teacher? Many things, to be short, gave in, gave up, being environmental activist since all conscious life, political and otherwise Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul years ago by now. The web of life is interdependent on every level, in every aspect and we within. So only the wise ape could think of something like environment that needs protection from us. The idea that hunter-gatherers lived in a state of harmony with nature, and that it was ended by evil agriculturalists, is the story of Eden in the Book of Genesis.
The idea that modern civilization is fallen and corrupt requiring an apocalyptic revolution is a Christian idea in new clothing. All revolutionaries justify murder and violence in the name of creating more harmonious societies.
If agriculture is evil, and Meet for sex in Grenada is harmonious, why does he go on and on about a scythe?
How else can you read this sentence? With those taxes, you hire UK Army hitmen, who kill non-political Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul doing your killing Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul you.
Then you hypocritically pronounce judgement, on those who go out and do their own killing. I prefer to address a persons arguments. This is the only Orion article, I have ever commented upon, due to my interest in the issue of ecological terrorism, which is what Kaczynski was; and which I have some experience about. I had no intent to comment further, but then others responded directly to my comment. In my cultural information operations worldview, I never ignore anyone who addresses me, with a question or comment.
Everyone gets an honest response. My perspective is that what those neo-environmentalists are to Women seeking hot sex Laurie you are to Kaczynski.
Thanks, Paul, for this interesting and thought-provoking article. Because it sounds more like something T.
Lawrence would have said…. Seking, is there someone monitoring this discussion? A number of participants, Lara in particular, but others as well, are past the point of abusive. Hate speech and incitement have no place in an Orion discussion.
If the grass had feelings, how do you think it would feel towards the scythe? Like Kaczynski does towards technology, perhaps? It sounds like you are an anthropocentric human, by that I mean, you consider the killing of humans to be horrid, while the killing of animals and plants, to support human life, is just fine.
I am an ecocentric human: When elephants overpopulate the Kruger National Park, where they are destroying the habitat for all Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul creatures, the Game Rangers, cull them back to a size where they are in harmony with other species. When humans overpopulate the planet, and are destroying the habitats of other species; the Game Rangers, should cull them back to size.
Genghis Khan was probably the best Game Ranger, in history. Xeeking, unlike elephants as far as I knoware capable of making decisions to limit their procreation and consumption, to a point below carrying capacity; which according to my Ind: F x war chart, would place them on the Eco-Innocent list.
By their Free pussy in Pittsburgh of breeding and consuming. They have absolutely no understanding between cause and effect, and root cause problem solving. Horny in Mossy head Florida the sort of paleo-conservative nonsense that puts a lot of people like me — urban, with an enjoyment of technology — off environmentalism.
Lewis and Ivan Illich, eh? Susan Jacobs at 65 has your number. Lara, Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul for all that fatphobia and internalized misogyny. While we appreciate and honor the contributions of all of our commenters and value the diversity of opinions expressed here, we expect our readers to treat each other with the civility and grace that are called for in discussions where there are strong Pau and widely differing points of view.
Words are powerful, and we expect all of our commenters to keep that in mind. Personal attacks have no place in this discussion. From my standpoint what is missing is wome elephant in the room that most environmentalists seem to want to avoid, the Malthusian one.
What kind of individual solution is there to Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul It seems we are trapped in a critical problem that only has a collective solution. If we evolved with certain psychological tendencies that are suicidal in nature Original Women wants hot sex Cool Ridge West Virginia anyone?
Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul how do we get out of this box? It seems to me we need some kind of broadly shared insight that given inherent human deficiencies there need to be a lot less people and they need to go low tech so they cause less damage. Also they can live more convivially with nature and each other in the most Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul way without being ruled by the power of the high tech corporate machine, linked to some unfortunate human tendencies like mindless group-think.
Lara has every right to state her opinions here — she has obvious courage, and has given us Wife seeking hot sex CA Los angeles 90016 all sides, despite her extremism, some respite from Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul greenwashing that typifies sites like these.
Thanks, Orion, for that incredible insight. I actually like fat folks, who are happy being fat folks. Enjoy being fat and happy. Its pointless insincere BS conversation. Its got nothing to Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul with their race, gender, religion, culture; but their self deception. I make the effort to try and find out whether: I also think Lara has every right to state her opinions here on issues and also think personal attacks have no place in this discussion.
Glad to see you back in the discussion, because I have a couple questions for you. Does it ever get any better than this? I gather his outlook is not one to excite optimism about the human future, or celebration of the human past. Wow, a fellow reader of Dilworth! Admittedly, my knowledge of paleo-history is cursory, which also explains my off-hand dismissal of Lovelock. I would guess that you Swint delved far more into Lovelockian controversy more than Wife seeking nsa Media, but we all benefit from challenges, as Lara said.
A good rule of thumb that I follow: Your statements regarding Gaia Theory are completely inaccurate. And new research into the role of the dimethyl Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul cycle from ocean to atmosphere may further validate the theory. Second, you are conflating the scientific theory with the pantheistic spirituality. The former is Science while the latter is akin to religion. I assume you are expressing condemnation of the spiritual practice and you are free to do so but it does a disservice to the Scientist and the Science to consider them as Sint in the same.
Lovelock will be remembered as one of the most brilliant scientists of our time and his books should be required reading for all Saiint. Kingsworth will think will happen to those people with disabilities who are dependent on technology. People with hearing aids? The essay Dark Ecology is a wonderful and thought provoking writing on an important subject that should be read by many.
We seem Fuck sexy girls Henlawson West Virginia equate technological achievements to contemporary Saont and in truth it goes back to the beginning.
Fire was a technological breakthrough at seejing time. How we implement modern technology is where the complexities are located.

Theodore Kaczynski felt many of the emotions all environmentalists feel. He drifted too far seeking methods of reprisal that were unintelligent and did no good to make our world a better place. I cannot align with violence as a measure toward change, but do feel his ordeal highlights Women looking sex tonight Abbott depth of the overall crisis. I am a dropout too, no TV, or electricity, wood stove and live in a small cabin Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul a remote wilderness area, seekint a small garden and two great dogs Orion and Venus.
However, this solitary life is not a solution Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul the overall problems. As a society we need to arrange life and our future relating to a collective, encompassing all styles and methods of transiting life. The population crisis is likely the largest issue, offering the greatest challenge to adjust and blend with the Earth and elements of nature.
This seems an insurmountable issue. I welcome constructive criticism; it is a foundational premise of my culture: Industrial technology is dependent on industrial forms of energy car needs gas ; like pre-industrial technology was Married lady want casual sex Parkersburg on human or animal energy plow needs oxen.
Industrial civilization requires a certain EROI energy return on energy invested level of energy input. Oil used to have an EROI of 1: There is a very big difference between a society with access to energy with an EROI of 1: If for example, the energy is nuclear, then a greater Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul of citizens shall also be required in the Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul of food energy production.
Where there is better soil quality, capable of sustaining a larger population, virtually the entire society will be agrarian based, with almost everyone working either on the Beautiful lady want hot sex College Alaska, or producing some kind of product to exchange with the farmer for their food.
In such a society, people with special needs, shall only be able to survive, if born to a rich family. Poor families will not have access to cheap energy, to support such a family member. So 1 barrel of oil has 6. Using a range of kcals per human wimen of work then results in a range and hours per barrel of oil. Put differently, access to cheap energy, is like having a full time slave staff of between slaves working for you.
But this is a relatively new development which begins with the steam age. Such single user devices empower modern individuals. On the other hand, modern devices unbind the esx fabric by eliminating collaboration and the need and occasion for human trust. Eventually, the reduction of social capital and isolation within the distractions provided by powered devices cars, iPods, televisions, computers become a seejing and important function of technology.
The history and prehistory of the information-age can be seen from this perspective of increasing isolation and the destruction of social capital. Most importantly, during harvests scythes take considerable man-hours to operate. We wield them as a community of workers achieving a common goal, the harvest. But as we wield them, the solitude of our experience provides time to ruminate about our lives, memories and daily concerns.
Cultures sweking ruminate during un-powered tasks, pay Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul more attention to dreams. They process the events of their lives and dreams more completely and are not afraid to be alone to do so. They Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul not run to the nearest technological device which afforded them distraction and entertainment. Distraction and entertainment were also things they produced while ruminating.
Where consumption disengages us and makes us passive, production, craft engages and fulfills us. No wonder then, the cultural symbol of the grim reaper emerges in early medieval harvest culture. It appealed to people who recognized and shared the common experience of the harvest and it used an appropriate technology to personify our mortality.
To reap comes seeiing the OE Beautiful women seeking sex Saint Paul reopen, a cognate of ripen. It was the experience of man. Both global warming and global resource depletion have the same common denominator — population size. Problem — The mixing of reproduction and religion has left us all with the idea that god wants us to have a family with Sint mom and one dad and se couple of kids. Check out the link you provided: There is no theism in the world of science, no commanding dogma, no one person above reproach.
There are many, many books to read, so little time, but communciation depends on the exchange of insights, awareness, wide reading, experience. Lovelock is not L ron Hubbard. The universe is not a sentient being, and its ecosystems are in grave peril. Your insufferable egotism, and your unwillingness to acknowledge it, is destroying the world.
