“There is a particular pessimism within deep ecology, dark/black ecology and inhumanist philosophies towards humanity’s ability to control/dictate the world, born out the biospheric-egalitarian rejection of human supremacy. It is a naked, tragic, and erotic pessimism, which manifests from a primal love for wild anarchy.”
“..I find greater resonance with abursdist philosophies, my absurdism contains the non-human nihilism of my own destruction (and coinciding creation).”
Literally any time someone evokes "rights" or having a "right" to something, I want to shake them by the shoulders and scream: "What is a right? Where do rights come from and what are they based in? How do we know what they are or that they exist? And who do you think guarantees those rights?"
People seem to have this quasi-mystical understanding of what rights are and how they work. Bats in the belfry, baybeeeee.
The Industrial Revolution and its consequences have been a disaster for the human race. They have greatly increased the life-expectancy of those of us who live in “advanced” countries, but they have destabilized society, have made life unfulfilling, have subjected human beings to indignities, have led to widespread psychological suffering (in the Third World to physical suffering as well) and have inflicted severe damage on the natural world.
