KMO welcomes Paul Kingsnorth, co-founder of the Dark Mountain project to the the C-Realm Podcast to discuss the themes in his recent Orion magazine article, Dark Ecology: Searching for truth in a post-green world. Paul is critical of neo-environmentalists; environmental activists who have made peace with the logic of capitalism and the infinite growth paradigm. They see environmental stresses as technical problems which are best addressed with technological remedies, and they agree that anything that is real and worthy of consideration can be quantified by science and priced by the market. Anything else is wool-minded romanticism. KMO draws a parallel to cosmopolitan liberals who despise and ridicule their “red state” counterparts but who have made peace with the imperial wealth pump that makes their lavish cosmopolitian lifestyles possible.
