Updates and additional notes

POWER: (“Power” is a relational term. It can only be understood as a relationship between human beings in a specific historical, economic and social setting. It must be exercised to be visible.)
1. Power is control of, or access to, those institutions sanctioned by the state. (Definition by Barbara Major of People’s Institute for Survival and Beyond, New Orleans)
2. Power is the ability to define reality and to convince other people that it is their definition. (Definition by Dr. Wade Nobles)
3. Power is ownership and control of the major resources of a state; and the capacity to make and enforce decisions based on this ownership and control; and (Alternative definition to #1)
4. Power is the capacity of a group of people to decide what they want and to act in an
Organized way to get it.
5. (In terms of an individual), power is the capacity to act.

Future of Environmentalism with Clint Jones, UWSP Philosophy

Full Lecture – Part 1

Here’s Clint Jones, UWSP Professor in Philosophy, on “green, white-ecology, deep ecology, dark ecology, and black ecology,” Lecture Part 1.

(it’s deep)

Lecture – Part 2
“Consider what it is to learn of the death of the last North African white rhinoceros. Where were you? What did you think? How did you feel? Can you really comprehend its extinction? More importantly: Can you empathize with a creature that just lost its being? It was you, after all, that died. It was you that went extinct.”


Question & Answer Session – 1

Question & Answer Session – 2
“The Black Ecologist is going to say something like this…” “You can’t solve a capitalist problem with a capitalist solution,” right? “It was the rhinoceros yesterday; it’ll be you, tomorrow.”

Question & Answer Session – 3

“…You want money, to access power, that’s exactly what you’re after, right? And you’ve been told that that’s success; having money, having power, that’s success. But if you take the profitability out of productivity, and you ask yourself if what you’re doing has value, that’s gonna change the way you think about how you ARE in the world. What you are becoming is what you should be worried about, not what you’re doing at the moment, right?”

“Black Ecology is revolutionary, but it’s not revolutionary, in the way you’ve been taught to think about it. It’s not, you know, in the streets, you know, fighting tear gas and trying to take The Man down by the throat while he’s trying to shoot you with rubber bullets, right? It’s re-thinking, how to co-exist. How to exist, not just interpersonally, right, but in a sort of intra-being sort of way, right? With other beings…”

Q & A part 4

“Most of our entertainment is apocalyptic. Most of the way you think about the world is apocalyptic, right? We always live on the precipice of the End Times…So how do you pull yourself back from the brink, right? I think it’s a lot of work.”

UWSP Student Govt Assoc-Katrina Shankland Listening Session

As promised, “Film at 11”

At tonight’s Listening Session with UWSP-SGA + Assembly Rep Shankland’s Listening Session at UWSP, regarding the “tech-schoolization” of UW-Stevens Point.**

Ivy Engwall gets Segment 1, because she’s an officer in UWSP College Green Party so I’m bias… (first 25 seconds are blurry because I’m not a videographer…)



**”Tech-schoolization” is a project of the Grover Norquist-Scott Walker-WIsco GOP one-party regime in Wisconsin since elections 2010. It re-defines the mission of the UW system as serving the workforce needs of Wisco-corporations.

Segment 2 features Rick Christofferson, an active person in Portage County Democratic Party and progressive groups in central Wisconsin.


Segment 3, first part Dan ___________, second part,  is Karlene Ferrante, who’s also an active person in central Wisconsin progressive activities.

Segment 4:

Savannah _______ speaking first. Mike ___________, a teacher, speaks second.

Segment5: Ann Stein.

Lenore Hitchler’s rap on the “new UWSP” plan, last evening.

Part 7 of the listening session.
The Cameraman speaks. Has to drag Karl Marx into the discussion. That’s so “Humanities!”

Segment 8: Abby

Segment 9: Adam Greuel: “Where is Bernie Patterson? And where is Greg Sommers?”

A Mathematics Major speaks out on the need for Liberal Arts majors, too!
