Every fortnight AJ_Gray calls the captains of carbon to account for their abuses, finding the bastards and flushing them out.
Sons of the Same Earth
...is derived from The Myth of Sisyphus by Albert Camus:
“Happiness and the absurd are two sons of the same earth. They are inseparable.”
The blog is a manifestation of the ongoing attempt to create meaning, and the inevitable failure to do so. Faced with the contradiction of the absurd, my response is to rebel, to stand up and say “Enough!” to the captains of carbon, my environmental enemy, whose response to the absurd is suicide by environmental degradation. Within such a context, happiness may arise - or if not that, at least some mirth at their expense.
...is a writer, teacher and curmudgeon. Though he is irascible, he's fundamentally reasonable. He's dedicated to the environmental cause but enjoys modernity, wishing simply for contemporary industrial society to exact a lower environmental cost. The venality and hypocrisy of big business incenses him, so he works to call the captains of carbon to account for their abuses.
