313: Peak Oil & the White “We”

Available on Patreon.

KMO welcomes Jay Smith and Jeff Wilburn to the C-Realm to reflect upon the Age of Limits  conference. Jay and Jeff, along with their girlfriends, accounted for  most of the African-American conference-goers, and this leads to a  discussion of how the on-going Peak Oil conversation is one carried out  primarily by whites and, to some extent, aims to preserve white  privilege and assumes that whites must take the leadership role in  deciding how best to address the challenges of the coming long  emergency. Both Jay and Jeff initially found the work of James Howard Kunstler  to be valuable but later came to chafe at Jim’s seemingly dismissive  attitude about black culture and the supposed failure of  African-Americans to assimilate into mainstream society.
