org for necessities

from a nother way deck (slides 4-6):

perhaps we haven’t yet gotten there (global systemic change.. back/to an undisturbed ecosystem).. because we keep focusing (and rhetoric ing) and obsessing on nonlegit ‘necessities’.. 

(ie: from hannah arendt‘s promise of politics around 1505 ff.. that politics is about organizing for these necessities of survival et al.. and the magic wand)

because.. when those nonlegit ‘necessities’ don’t satisfy.. (as they can’t) we perpetuate the myth of sea world.. of tragedy of the non common.. where scarcity/fear/violence/oppression/order.. are assumed

today we have the means to let go of all those assumptions.. we have the means to undo our hierarchical listening (to self/others/nature)..  so that we can hear/see/grok the essence of human being.. ie: maté basic needs 2018

imagine if we organize around that enoughness .. around the essence/necessities of that

adding page while re re reading hannah arendt‘s promise of politics:

ie:

2050

the household, which a free man could leave at will, was not just the place where man was ruled by necessity and coercion, but also the place where the life of every individual – though bound up in that necessity and coercion – was secured.. where everything was *organized to provide enough of life’s necessities.. thus only that man was free who was prepared to risk his own life.. and it was the man w the unfree and servile would who clung too dearly to life..

*org (around non legit necessities) as the poison.. let’s org differently

let go

we need to org for legit necessities ie: a nother way

_________

and.. much more from promise of politics:

1499

freedom of the mind for its concern with the eternal (the aei on), which is possible only if the needs and necessities of mortal life have been taken care of.

graeber care/free law

1505

 *if only “all that is essential to our wants and comforts were supplied by some magic wand, a

1596

when there is no more poverty, ,such excesses will inevitably ‘wither away’

huge.. when get back/to grokking enough ness..

a nother way to live..

majoring on ‘necessities’ that can never satisfy/protect.. will only grok in the legit freedom of ie: graeber care/free law

1685

It is so difficult to comprehend that there is a realm in which we can be truly free, that is, neither driven by ourselves nor dependent on the *givens of material existence.

huge

esp when we realize legit needs/necessities

but/and .. today we can ie: imagine if we.. there is a nother way

1948

because man is not self sufficient but is dependent in his existence on others, provisions must be made that affect the existence of all, since w/o such provisions communal life would be impossible. the task, the end purpose, of politics is to safeguard life in the broadest sense.. politics makes it possible for the individual to pursue his own ends, to be, that is, unmolested by politics..

i think we keep messing/obsessing with the wrong necessities.. ie: there’s a nother way.. it’s not so much that we’re dependent on others.. but that the dance is interconnected.

1973

what distinguishes the communal life of people in the polis from all other forms of human communal life.. is freedom.. this does not mea that the political realm was understood as a means to make human freedom.. a free life.. possible.. being free and living in the polis were one and the same.. but only in a certain sense.. for to be able to live in a polis at all.. man already had to be free in another regard.. he could not be subject as a slave to someone else’s domination or as a worker to the necessity of earning his daily bread

huge

gare enslavement lawearn a livingany form of m\a\p..

Man must first be liberated or liberate himself in order to enjoy freedom, and being liberated from domination by life’s necessities was the true meaning of the Greek word scholl or the Latin otium—what we cal today leisure. This liberation, in contrast to freedom, was an end that could, and had to, be achieved by certain means. This crucial means was slavery, the brute force by which one man compelled others to relieve him of the cares of daily life.

whoa. so slavery as means to freedom.. but none of us are free if one of us is chained

2050

the household, which a free man could leave at will, was not just the place where man was ruled by necessity and coercion, but also the place where the life of every individual – though bound up in that necessity and coercion – was secured.. where everything was *organized to provide enough of life’s necessities.. thus only that man was free who was prepared to risk his own life.. and it was the man w the unfree and servile would who clung too dearly to life..

*org as the poison.. let’s org differently

let go

2165

then life sustained within the household is not a means to the higher purpose of political freedom, but rather, control over the necessities of life and over slave labor within the household is the means by which a man is liberated to engage in politics. 

? *sounds like gare enslavement law.. rather than bachelard oikos law.. what we need is oikos ness

2204

the academy guaranteed to the few an institutionalized space for freedom..

none of us are free

slaves to free from necessities in house.. academy to free from necessities/market in public.. neither enough.. both cancer.. need a diff sort of ie: graeber care/free law.. beyond age 5 et al

2216

The few, wherever they have isolated themselves from the many—be it in the form of academic indifference or oligarchic rule—have manifestly ended up depending upon the many, particularly in all those matters of communal life requiring concrete action. . politics concerns self w everything that guarantees existence of freedom.. ie: admin and provision of life’s necessities.. ….. Politics becomes on the one hand a necessity that stands in opposition to freedom, and yet on the other hand is the prerequisite for freedom.

wrong necessities.. let’s try ie: a nother way

2228

on polis providing life’s necessities.. decided by people talking/persuading one another.. but that was precisely what no longer mattered once the justification for politics was seen as guaranteeing freedom fro the few

Freedom as the end purpose of politics establishes limits to the realm of politics; the criterion for action within that realm is no longer freedom but competence and efficiency in securing life’s necessities.

wrong necessities.. so wrong admin

2330

this however in no way changes the fact that the activities required for sustaining life and property .. or indeed for improving life and augmenting property.. are matters of necessity and not of freedom..

yeah.. not.. so loaded.. ie: wrong necessities

what the modern era expected of its state, and what this state indeed achieved to a large extent, was the release of men to develop their socially productive energies, to produce in common the good they required for a ‘happy ” life.

2419

not being free: 1\ whe person subject to force of antoher 2\ when person subject to life’s naked necessities.. labor is the activity that corresponds to he coercion by whichlife itself forces ust to provide ourselves w these necessiticites

but 2 is really just same song of #1 .. when nonlegit necessities.. ie: a nother way

in all premodern societies a person could free self from this labor by coercing others to labor for him.. by force and domination..

ie: supposed to’s of school/work.. work as solving other people’s problems.. any form of m\a\p

in modern society the laborer is subject to no brute force and no domination. he is coerced by the direct necessity inherent in life itself.. .. here then.. necessity replaces force..

yeah.. not.. wrong necessities means still force.. structural violence et al

here then necessity replaces force.. but question remains: is it easier to resist the coercion of brute force or of necessity..

same song because same non legit ness

on.. until labor automated.. all become laborers

laborers/slave any way.. ie: gare enslavement law.. when any form of m\a\p.. which includes people telling other people what legit necessities are

necessity, not freedom, rules the life of society; and it is not by change that the concept of necessity has come to dominate all modern philosophies of history..

huge to a nother way.. org’d around legit necessities .. aka: essence of human being

2445

the brute *force sometimes necessary for the defense of politics and those *provision for sustaining life that must first be secured before political freedom is possible.. have now moved to the center of all political activity by applying *force as the means whose highest end is supposed to be sustaining and organizing life..

yeah.. all *red flags .. non legit necessities needs force to maintain
