The Mixed review 4-13-12 (NATURE OF THE STATE)

The Mixed review is a record of my daily readings. I hope it provides a resource for your own projects and projections into the intricacies of our world.

First let me show you that: "We The People Are More Powerful Than We Dare To Believe" - Paul Cienfuegos

Paul Cienfuegos is part of a radical new idea, a coordinated offensive for the expanding of environmental and democratic rights. The organization Cienfuegos works with the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund defends the rights of real natural entities, against the encroachment of legal fictions, without compromising their principals of de-centralization and democratic individual rights. This is the way you fight corrupt globalization, my friend!

The Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund has helped many communities around the country, mostly on the east coast, to establish town charters in order to increase the decision making power to the people in their localities. One such community is Blaine County in Pennsylvania. The Home Rule Charter for Blaine Township is a remarkable document. It’s remarkably versatile in the way it balances seemingly conflicting rights.

Section 311
Final Authority of Local Law The People of Blaine Township shall have a right to introduce and adopt laws on their own initiative, and the final authority on the constitutionality, interpretation and effect of all laws adopted by the People of Blaine Township, or by their Township government, shall be the People of Blaine Township.

Section 317 Right to Own Property Each of the residents of Blaine Township possesses a right to own property, but this right shall not convey with it a right or privilege to deprive or curtail the rights of People or Nature.

Section 324 Rights of Natural Communities Natural communities and ecosystems, including, but not limited to, wetlands, streams, rivers, aquifers, clouds, and other water systems, possess inalienable and fundamental rights to exist, flourish and naturally evolve within Blaine Township. Consequently, no private claim to ownership of natural communities, whole ecosystems or the genetic material of any organism shall be recognized within Blaine Township.

(There’s even a section on the right to bear arms.)

Section 314 Right to Bear Arms The right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

On April 21, 2012 Paul Cienfuegos will be

be leading a 75-minute mini-workshop at the Earth Day conference at PCC Sylvania campus at 1pm.

12000 SW 49th Ave. Portland, OR 97219 | 971-722-6111 |

Second let me show you that: Gilles Deleuze has good things to say about "the three great forms of thought" on page 197 0f "What Is Philosophy?".

"What defines thought in its three great forms­__ art, science, and philosophy__ is always confronting chaos, laying out a plane, throwing a plane over chaos. But philosophy wants to save the infinite by giving it consistency: it lays out a plane of immanence that, through the action of conceptual personae, takes events or consistent concepts to infinity. Science, on the other hand, relinquishes the infinite in order to gain reference: it lays out a plane of simply undefined coordinates that each time, through the action of partial observers, defines states of affairs, functions, or referential propositions. Art wants to create the finite that restores the infinite: it lays out a plane of composition that, in turn, through the action of aesthetic figures, bears monuments or composite sensations."

Third let me show you that: THE FUNAMBULIST has a new article on coil miner (amateur) architecture.

Bernd and Hilla Becher's photos ironically demonstrate the dual beauties of laissez-faire design and environmental awareness.

Although the coal industry is among the most destructive to the environment I personally find these mining structures to be quite enhancing to the Pennsylvania land scrape. the Funambalist points out that much of the materials used in the construction of these structures where probably gathered from the surrounding area.

Forth thing on the table is: The Nature of the State according to Murray N. Rothbard.

This is a great argument against a long taken for granted state of affairs.
