On an island, a place of edges, the ocean provides a counter-narrative, nonlinear in
what it reveals; "time's arrow" is modified by the rhythmic cycle of the sea as it
encounters, and ever transforms, the shore. Historical, archaeological, or even
narrative knowledge is challenged by its meeting with the sea that offers up its own
kind of knowing. We need to stretch, even confound, our usual frames to take account
of such knowledge.

Global Islands Project -- ongoing series of multi-media pdf-ebooks/field-recordings -- a
pastoral, pictorial and phonic elicitation of island parameters. An intensive
examination of small islands and their paradigmatic solutions to globalism...
Ethnographically a shared world of historical experience -- not the romanticized and
divided universe of them and us.

Your feudal-world is based on mutual relief at your common corruption. Maybe some
cultures are based on even worse. But that wouldn't change the bad faith of it and as
years go by, you wake at night in terror of your whole life being an act of shattered
faith, where everything is self-interest and nothing more, where every human
interaction is driven by a silent, even subconscious calculation of some ulterior
motive, to the point that a sea of bad faith has taken over your whole life, there's no
small island left from which you can even try to build a bridge of good faith, because
even that effort becomes suspect, even good faith is nothing but self-interested, even
altruism is nothing but solipsistic, even your professed agonizing right here right now
is nothing but a gesture, made to the conscience in order to assure it that it exists.

Deglobalisation is not a synonym for withdrawing from the world economy. It means a
process of restructuring the world economic and political system so that the latter
builds the capacity of local and national economies instead of degrading it.
Deglobalisation means the transformation of a global economy from one integrated
around the needs of transnational corporations to one integrated around the needs of
peoples, nations, and communities. We cannot talk about construction without
deconstruction, reintegration without disintegration.

The world (universe) is mostly filled with the black hole (or the vast and deep sea )
of the forgotten. Compared with this, the world of memory is only a small island in
the vast "sea of oblivion."

A traveller, who has lost their way, should not ask, 'Where am I?' What s/he
really wants to know is, 'Where are the other places?'

Ni sa yali ga na noda itovo, sa oti sara ga o keda.
(When we lose our culture, we are nothing.)

Vientos del pueblo me llevan
Vientos del pueblo me arrastran
Me eparcen mi corazon
Ye me aventan la garganta

12 mailing list:

You cannot politically defy the institutions when all you really wanted
was to be clasped to their bosoms and hope in time to be cherished under
the very framework of oppressive values you are thinking of overcoming.
That would be co-optation, revolution only in the sense of a circulation
of elites rather than the extirpation of the very impulses of elitism.
