The Perversion of Hostility to Life (a verbal essay)
Listen here (as it refuses to embed, sometimes, for whatever reason)
I'm really enjoying these verbal essays....In this one, I discuss the notion of "hostility to life" as it manifests in Wilhelm Reich, Nietzsche, Alan Watts, Derrida, and the Tao. What a funny thing to wish things were otherwise! To wish that whatever is happening wasn't happening! When there's no alternative! This is it! There's no outside the text! Amor fati!
Which doesn't mean we can't change things. It just means the terms in which we seek to change things are less, well, adamant. Perhaps.
