|I am for||liberty||;||I am against||coercion.|
I posted this the day after 9 / 11 / 01. The original issued a baker’s half-dozen precepts. I’d thought I’d add, and add; in fact, a decade and a half later, I’m only just getting around to restoring that original after the fed’s censorship of 2007.
But now, 2015 06 25 and so on, I may resume authoring.
|I am for||commons||;||I am against||property.|
|I am for||learning||;||I am against||education.|
Let ourselves, our environments, our talents, and our interests determine what we learn; not some kleptocratic committee deciding what we are to be subjected to. Persuasion is compatible with deschooling, not coercion.
|I am against||schools||;||I am for||networks.|
|I am against||government||;||I am for||organization.|
|I am against||law||;||I am for||order.|
|I am against||civilzation
|;||I am for||civilization
That is, I am for civilization as deep culture, provided it’s, in Illich’s phrase, convivial.
(The word “civilization” is etymologically derived from “city” and the builders of cities became the most dangerous kleptocrats. Arthur C. Clarke said “One of the greatest tragedies in human history was the hi-jacking of morality by religion.” I second that judgment but add that similarly tragic was the hi-jacking of the convivial benefits of culture by kleptocracy. When I want to get rid of civilization I have no intention of sacrificing art: not music, not literature, not manners, not cooking.)
|I am for||convivial society||;||I am against||regimentation.|
I launched a similar, parallel module in the mid to late 1990s: a wish list: political, theo-cosmological; not personal: context, deschool, decentralizing.
2015 06 25 Thanks to WordPress I have a place to try to recreate Knatz.com but I do not appreciate the freedom WP exercises in rewiting and sabotaging my HTML: especially in tables, like these.
