Racist-colonialist capitalism operates by misusing terms like "natural" and "universal," hiding its highly social and contingent assumptions under these platitudes, walling itself off from criticism like a coward.

The reason I feel it's important to so frequently and so vehemently kick scientific materialism as we know it in the shins is because it's unbelievably pervasive, and largely it's blind, that is, as an ideology it does not self-reflect. It wouldn't recognize itself in a mirror.

The most common defense is that "science is useful," as if demonstrating science's utility within its own parameters makes it safe. The problem is precisely its belief in the universality of its parameters.

I froze, sure I was on the nature path alone, "Hi?"

"I'm a bird helper," the small, high-pitched voice explained. It also seemed to be coming from some bushes.

"Are you... a person who helps birds or... a bird who helps persons?"

"Yes? Yes!" the voice sounded uncertain for only the briefest moment.


"Oh! You're about to walk into poison oaks."

"Huh. That's very helpful! Thanks!"

"Welcome!" the voice proudly chirped.
