The Chorizo Syndrome

[anarchist – robotic controversy]

… incarnations of Thoreau (1) and Proudhon (2), one facing his political isolation to re-discover a monist (3)  relationship, the other promoting the success of a bottom up urban social contract (4)  in which they have both participated in the past, sharing their protest, illusions and utopian ideals on the barricade.

The Thoreau avatar has developed a tree disease (5), which he uses to protect and feed him… as shelter and cannibalism… in a monstrous physiological proliferation of keratin branches.

The Proudhon avatar affectively and vainly tries to convince him to re­turn to the city they created a few years ago… A city of a social model which “Thoreau” renounced and abnegated.

We face two systems of “anarchia” (6), of political choices: the multitude of bottom up, music of the swarm as Rimbaud  talked about in the ‘commune of Paris’  revolt; versus its “dandyism” (9)  antidote, through an individualistic disobedience and intellectual-physical regression, to (re)discover a naturalist daily routine (10) , an ecosophical relation with the beats of mother earth…

A chorus assist in this ontological dispute…and expresses what they suppress…

1 Henry David Thoreau, a leading transcenden­talist, had an early influence on the individualist anarchist school of thought. He is best known for Walden; or Life in the Woods which reflects on his two years experience of living in solitude on the shores of Massachusetts Walden’s Pond where he ponders simple living in natural surroundings.

2 Pierre-Joseph Proudhon is considered to be the founder of anarchism and mutuelist theory. He is best known for his works Property is Theft and What is Property? where he contested the legacy about property resulting in the origins of collectivism.

3 Monist is the ideology that only one ‘thing’ exists, from where species and biotopes are co-substantial.

4 A bottom-up social contract is the piecing together of systems to give rise to more complex systems, thus making the original systems sub-systems of the emergent system.

5 The treeman syndrome (Epidermodysplasia verruciformis) is a rare skin disorder resulting in the uncontrolled growth of scaly warts over hands and feet

6 Anarchism is a political philosophy that advo­cates self-governed societies based on voluntary institutions. Anarchism holds the state to be undesirable, unnecessary and harmful and thus societies should be stateless.

9 Dandyism (antidote) – description about how a system of equality needs the disruption of and individualist character to break monotony !

10 (re)discover a naturalist-vitalism-animism daily routine – an­thropocentric arrogances ignore “by nature” the ‘’rights’’ of the earth.
