The State is a cold concern which cannot inspire love, but itself kills, suppresses everything that might be loved; so one is forced to love it, because there is nothing else. That is the moral torment to which all of us today are exposed.

Avam Olarak Futbol

Football in Sun and in Shadow [Gölgede ve Güneşte Futbol] adlı kitabında Eduardo Galeano, dünyanın en ünlü sporunun ticarileşmesine ve halk tabakasından kopmasına değindi. Kitabında ‘’spor sektöre dönüştüğü oranda, eğlence için oynandığı zamanki güzelliğini kaybetmiştir. Profesyonel futbol, işe yaramaz her öğeyi reddetmektedir; kâr getirmeyen her şey de işe yaramaz olarak kabul edilmektedir”, dedi. Bunu bir kez daha, modern futbolun gerçekte olduğu gibi göründüğü Brezilya’daki 2014 Dünya Kupası’nda gördük: modern tüketim kültürünün bu kutlamasına katılmaya parası yetmeyecek olan, altta yer alanlara karşı agresif, değişmez sermaye birikiminin mantığına hizmet eden bir mekanizma. Sadece pasif tüketiciler olarak katılabileceğimiz küresel süpermarketin raflarında görücüye çıkan bir metaya dönüştü. Continue reading “Avam Olarak Futbol”

“Free public transportation implies many changes, a completely new way to look at the city, both in terms of how we move and how we tax, but also how we live, where we live, how we relate to each other as a society, and our broader relationship to the urban, regional and global eco-system.”

The political ecology of Cornelius Castoriadis

By Yavor Tarinski

Castoriadis

Ecology played a major role in the thought of Cornelius Castoriadis. Castoriadis viewed ecology in stark contrast from most environmentalists, now and then. Like political ecologists and the readers of this blog, he insisted that nature is not a commodity, and should not be seen as something separated from society. For Castoriadis, nature was integral to his, and anyone’s, political project. Continue reading “The political ecology of Cornelius Castoriadis”
