- For all the (supposed) micro-rationalities of capitalism, it produces some huge macro-irrationalities (overshoot of planetary boundaries, social inequity).
- Finished listening to What Is To Be Done? with Breht O'Shea and Alyson Escalante.
- Listened: Red Menace: Climate Leviathan: A Political Theory of Our Planetary Future
- Great discussion of Climate Leviathan by the Red Menace crew. Very engaging overview of the book. Definitely need to get around to reading it.
- I was listening while doing jobs around the house so didn't get chance to note that much. But was nodding along to lots of salient points along the way.
- Alyson and Breht both thought it a very worthwhile book and liked much of its analysis. They veer more to Climate Mao than Climate X, but still found value in X.
- I do think there's a strong argument that you'd need a planetary sovereign of some kind to tackle the urgent and global polycrisis.
- Why bother with org-roam and Termux on my phone? Why not just stick with orgzly for fleeting notes and then process them at the laptop?
- A few reasons. First off, I just enjoy tinkering, and it's fun playing with Doom Emacs in Termux 🙂
- Second - in my daily life outside of work I don't get that much opportunity to just sit at my desk so often fleeting notes just like you in orgzly without getting processed.
- So far, though we'll see how it pans out, I'm finding much more opportunity to grab a moment here and there and process stuff incrementally through termux.
- Planetary sovereign.
- From Climate Leviathan, the idea of a global 'state' of some kind, to coordinate response to climate crisis (and polycrisis in general).
- "a tangled knot of crises spanning global systems."
