THE EIGHT PRINCIPLES OF UNCIVILISATION
from The Dark Mountain Project Manifesto
1. We live in a time of social, economic and ecological unravelling. All around us are signs that our whole way of living is already passing into history. We will face this reality honestly and learn how to live with it.
2. We reject the faith which holds that the converging crises of our times can be reduced to a set of ‘problems’ in need of technological or political ‘solutions’.
3. We believe that the roots of these crises lie in the stories we have been telling ourselves. We intend to challenge the stories which underpin our civilisation: the myth of progress, the myth of human centrality, and the myth of our separation from ‘nature’. These myths are more dangerous for the fact that we have forgotten they are myths.
4. We will reassert the role of storytelling as more than mere entertainment. It is through stories that we weave reality.
5. Humans are not the point and purpose of the planet. Our art will begin with the attempt to step outside the human bubble. By careful attention, we will reengage with the non-human world.
6. We will celebrate writing and art which is grounded in a sense of place and of time. Our literature has been dominated for too long by those who inhabit the cosmopolitan citadels.
7. We will not lose ourselves in the elaboration of theories or ideologies. Our words will be elemental. We write with dirt under our fingernails.
8. The end of the world as we know it is not the end of the world full stop. Together, we will find the hope beyond hope, the paths which lead to the unknown world ahead of us.February 10, 2022 at 9:02 pm #100652boscohorowitzParticipant

I don’t think the truckers in the Great Southern Land are having anywhere near the impact that those in North America are having. Possibly because we’re not as closely linked as the US and Canada. The only bridges we have are shipping routes and they’re not as easy to blockade. I suppose they could blockade the ports.
The MSM are treating our protestors with ignore. The general attitude is that they are deluded, conspiratorial ratbags. On the other hand, there is also an increasing number of people who see right through the whole thing.
I think what happens in North America will greatly influence what happens here, so I await developments with great interest and a measure of optimism.
BTW, it has now been officially decided that “fully vaccinated” means “up to date”. No national mandate; it’s up to the states and territories to decide on that.February 10, 2022 at 11:36 pm #100668HuskynutParticipant
Re the DMED data, I’ve recently started following Mathew Crawford on Substack,who is brilliant and prolific in his analysis and writing. Today’s piece covers DMED and pledges to delve deeply into the data itself.. I look forward to see the outcome: https://roundingtheearth.substack.com/p/defining-away-vaccine-safety-signals-ea2
Re truckers, prtests and NZ – yesterday saw NZ police arrest ~50 protesters in some ugly scenes. From the many video clips I’ve seen taken by the protesters, they did a remarkable job of maintaining a peaceful and often cheerful demeanor. The MSM of course have reported the complete opposite.
The whole of the NZ parliament remained silent on what was taking place right outside their doors. Interestingly, several high-profile ex-politicans have come out today loudly condemning the arrogance of current pols refusing to meet with genuine protesters and deploying police against them. Rodney Hide, the ex-leader of the ACT libertarian group launched into the parties current leader (who has been on a roll lately, but turned into a bit of dick as a result..) contrasting all the things the party nominally stood for against the current leaders behaviour. Whack! Pop! Kowee..! Holy smoke Batman – lat volley landed with aplomb!
With the weekend approaching, it appears a large number of people are heading to Wellington from around the country to reinforce the protest. The weather is supposed to be terrible tomorrow, but hopefully they persist.
Myself, I felt guilty for working yesterday and not getting myself down to support the protesters. This morning I talked it over with my 8yo, and she is keen to go down there on the weekend and see what a protest looks like. It’s a balancing act for me, as her mum is much more compliant and doesn’t want the issue becoming extremely divisive between the three of us.
Lastly, re trust in GPs – prompted by this article: https://hatchardreport.com/how-medical-ethics-came-to-be-ignored/
..yesterday I started drafting a note to my GP and the medical practice asking how they’ve reconciled their oaths and intellects with their behaviour in being rabid jab promoters in the last year. I don’t want to change practices – as individuals I’ve been impressed with every one of them I’ve met, but as a collective they’ve been ghastly on this issue.February 11, 2022 at 12:08 am #100671tinfoilhatted canuckParticipant

My impression is that the trans-national ruling class decided what they wanted to do several years ago, and now they’re doing it- quite well and easily, I think.

Yes, you now need to take a very different view of the medical profession. You need to question their advice constantly.
Dentists are also part of the medical profession.
A year ago I had a big cavity in a rear molar that reached the tooth’s nerve. My dentist said I needed to have a root canal done first by a specialist which would cost over $1,500 Cdn. I elected to have the tooth pulled for $200 Cdn instead.
Last week, I discovered another big cavity in a rear molar. I went to my dentist and he said, for a $120 Cdn fee, that I needed to have a root canal done first, because the cavity extended close to the tooth’s nerve, before he would fill the cavity. The root canal by a specialist, would now cost me over $1,600 Cdn.
After mulling it over for a few days, I rejected the root canal option and rebooked with the dentist to fill the cavity.
Yesterday, basically over his objection again that this was not a good idea, he did the filling. He used white filling rather than with metal filling material.
Today, I am back to normal. My tooth is not talking back to me at all. So I now know I made the right decision. Yes it is possible that this molar will be more sensitive to hot/cold liquids but only time will tell. I have had cold liquids today with no SOS signals coming in from the affected tooth.
So obviously this was just a 100% money driven issue. Looking back, I should of had my first molar cavity filled too, not pulled out. Live and learn too late.
As for my family doctor, I already know he strongly opposed ivermectin. Nuff said.February 11, 2022 at 12:52 am #100675WESParticipant
Mr Ford may now have a rather hard time motivating my family (4 votes) to rise up on election day!
If I don’t get up and vote, then the rest of the family won’t bother either!
I do however wonder what kind of blackmail pressure was brought to bare on our Ontario premier to volunteer to be Trudeau’s lightling rod for such a politically stupid suicide mission.February 11, 2022 at 1:19 am #100676tinfoilhatted canuckParticipant
My guess is a private poll that showed most Ontarians are like my dear wife — trusting of governments, white coats and following orders ( an elementary teacher of the left-ish sort ) As you know, big election coming up.
I will be a LOT more active searching out candidates who don’t know-tow to the medical based apartheid response to this pandemic.February 11, 2022 at 1:20 am #100677
Another very fine comment found at That Other Site:
> So we have a ginormous “upsurge” that forces auto manufacturing to shut down. Led by whom? Petite bourgeoisie who believe in Odin and Anglo-Saxon replacement theory, that’s who. It’s enough to make a cat laugh.
You forgot to mention that it’s been reported that 90% of Canadian truckers are vaccinated.
It’s tremendously disappointing that so many commenters here are OK with government forced jabs of inadequately tested, experimental drugs, number as yet to be determined by those who profit from them, and biometric tracking of compliance as a requirement for participation in society innocuously known as a “vaccine passport.”
As if such a system is only being established to keep hospital beds available for those who need an appendix removed or a stent placed, and has absolutely nothing to do with future control of dissent.
I, for one, am grateful to those petitely bougey Odinists, nativists and horn honkers for seeing the dystopian future and protesting to prevent it. As if owning your own truck somehow makes you too “well-off” to speak for “labor.”

There’s a good line in the movie ‘The Neighbor’ ca. 2009, where Michelle Laroque’s love interest says to her
“Iook: I lie for a living; I’m the Liar of liars, and what you’re selling me is weak.” (paraphrase)
Present-day applications abound, I think.
the movie is a maybe shallow but fun romantic comedy, by the way, especailly if you like Laroque, and Matthew Modine (Birdy, Full Metal Jacket).February 11, 2022 at 2:22 am #100686VietnamVetParticipant
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said of Liz Truss the Foreign Secretary of the United Kingdom, “I’m honestly disappointed that our conversation turned out like the mute with the deaf. We appear to be listening but we’re not hearing anything. Our detailed explanations fell on unprepared ground.”
Well! So much for diplomacy! Let’s have a war!
This same laissez-faire attitude towards the coronavirus pandemic permeates the USA/UK/Canada/Australian governments. Now that truck drivers are hurting corporate profits; not to mention, threatening to kick the bums out; five democrat blue state governors end mask mandates.
Thank God. The pandemic is over. Except, it isn’t.
February 9th’s weekly average of daily deaths with COVID-19 in the USA is 2,411. This is equivalent to the 2500 Americans who died in the deadliest day of combat in US history, D-Day Normandy Landings in WWII. Every day, over and over again, for how long? The simple truth is that it does not matter how many Americans are dying to the Western Empire’s current rulers.
Masks are one of the proven interventions that lower the risk of transmission of the virus. Like finding early off-patent treatments to prevent and cure illness; inconvenient mitigations are discarded to make more money and stay in power; not prevent illness. Public Health is of no importance in the West.
Perhaps prayers will be answered and hope wins out. But Omicron BA.1 is the cause of current second highest surge of deaths in the USA. It may be the last variant to sweep the world unhindered but, on the other hand, Omicron BA.2 variant is 2/3 of the new cases in Denmark and has been detected in half of the US States.February 11, 2022 at 2:30 am #100687
Two years into the “pandemic”, I’ve yet to meet, or hear of directly (i.e., not online), anyone who’s been made seriously ill by the Covid.February 11, 2022 at 2:45 am #100689SeaBirdsParticipant
We’re also keenly following the events in Wellington, and sorry we don’t live nearer. Hope you can take your young daughter to the protests on the weekend – hopefully a positive turning point in the history of NZ that she will never forget!

This would be a good time to begin measuring our messaging effectiveness. How many people around the world are more or less convinced that Covid and the Vaccines are systematic planned mass killing, for REAL?
Any websters out there willing and able to track all of the vital stats regarding this issue? Country by country plus Grand Total would be helpful. Tables and graphs would also be cool. Something along the lines of Statista. Traffic to the site would MASSIVE, so it should be an excellent money maker for some ambitious Tech entrepreneur. Now’s the time to get started, near the beginning of broad public awareness and acknowledgement that this cleanup activity is, indeed, a real thing that is NOT going away for at least the next few years.

Feb. 9th, whitehouse briefing
Fauci’s response to booster question.
For example, there may be the need for yet again another boost — in this case, a fourth-dose boost for an individual receiving the mRNA — that could be based on age, as well as underlying conditions.
So, I don’t think you’re going to be hearing, if you do, any kind of recommendations that would be across the board for everyone. It very likely will take into account what subset of people have a diminished, or not, protection against the important parameters such as hospitalization.
Same day, Fauci was quoted as saying this,
“It will depend on who you are,” Fauci told the Financial Times, “but if you are a normal, healthy 30-year-old person with no underlying conditions, you might need a booster only every four or five years.”
Hmmm, four or five years? (He is spooked by something in the data or was misquoted)
Interesting video from Prasad.
It’s beginning to look as if one jab would have been sufficient in preventing severe disease with delta and that risk only make some sense in an older subset of the population. It’s also possible that a smaller dose may have been sufficient. Current adult Pfizer jab contains around 15 billion LNPs.February 11, 2022 at 4:25 am #100706

The large amounts of people who did get tricked into being vaccinated will support the banning and cancelling of the “unpure”.
So it’s to unfold with a minority of obedient facists, stripping the rights of the people who refused to take the experimental shots. Seems likely to backfire, in my opinion. Not wise, but then history proves ‘civilisation’ (those claiming to represent the status quo) to be folly, time and time again.February 11, 2022 at 9:32 am #100721Dr. DParticipant

I agree with that. The [useless, except for wordsmithing] online “left” are seeming a little testy and maybe fearful these days about the Truckers taking some honest real-world action.
