An Insurrectionist Manifesto: Four New Gospels for a Radical by Ward Blanton

By Ward Blanton

An Insurrectionist Manifesto includes 4 insurrectionary gospels in line with Martin Heidegger's philosophical version of the fourfold: earth and sky, gods and mortals. hard non secular dogma and dominant philosophical theories, they provide a cooperative, world-affirming political theology that promotes new existence via no longer resurrection yet revolt. The insurrection in those gospels unfolds as a sequence of surprising but worldly practices of important confirmation. in view that those workouts don't depend on fantasies of get away, they engender intimate changes of the self alongside the very coordinates from which they emerge. Enacting a comparative and contagious postsecular sensibility, those gospels draw at the paintings of Slavoj Žižek, Giorgio Agamben, Catherine Malabou, François Laruelle, Peter Sloterdijk, and Gilles Deleuze but rejuvenate scholarship in continental philosophy, severe race conception, the hot materialisms, speculative realism, and nonphilosophy. they suspect past the sovereign strength of the only to begin a thorough politics "after" God.

Example text

We need a theology that genuinely takes account of the earth without lapsing into wishful thinking about what it means to live in harmony with nature or New Age platitudes about Gaia that produce a false spirituality. Traditional theology locates value and meaning outside of, and far beyond, the earth in a transcendent realm of heaven. ”28 God is a substance both unmovable and eternal, separated from all the things we experience that change and grow and die. Christianity takes over and modifies this conception of God, giving God a personality and positing a stronger link between divinity and humanity by way of the incarnation of Jesus as the Christ, the Son of God.

As the United States started to reach limits in oil production, super-giant oil fields were discovered and developed in Saudi Arabia, and the United States’ alliance with Saudi Arabia “won” the cold war by flooding the market with cheap Saudi oil in the 1980s, destroying the Soviet economy. A key year is 1970 when worldwide growth began to slow, as the United States reached a limit in domestic oil production, and the world reached a limit in the global cost of energy per capita, which required a new transformation of global capitalism.

Although she does not make the connection with energy, Naomi Klein traces the political and economic aspects of this new corporatism in her book The Shock Doctrine. The shock doctrine is actually a response to a shock to the world economy by the first impacts of ecological limits on cheap energy. United States oil production peaked in 1970, and in 1971 Richard Nixon was forced to abandon the gold standard, which marked the end of the Bretton Woods arrangement. Interest rates floated free, and a de facto oil standard was established after the shocks of the OPEC oil embargo.
