Western culture is infatuated with the dream of going beyond, even as it is increasingly haunted by the specter of apocalypse: drought, famine, nuclear winter. How did we come to think of the planet and its limits as we do? This book reclaims, redefines, and makes an impassioned plea for limits-a notion central to environmentalism-clearing them from their association with Malthusianism and the ideology and politics that go along with it. Giorgos Kallis rereads reverend-economist Thomas Robert Malthus and his legacy, separating limits and scarcity, two notions that have long been conflated in both environmental and economic thought. Limits are not something out there, a property of nature to be deciphered by scientists, but a choice that confronts us, one that, paradoxically, is part and parcel of the pursuit of freedom. Taking us from ancient Greece to Malthus, from hunter-gatherers to the Romantics, from anarchist feminists to 1970s radical environmentalists, Limits shows us how an institutionalized culture of sharing can make possible the collective self-limitation we so urgently need.
From the afterword:In the ´´it can now be told” department, we may now reveal that the mysterious ´´Commander X” was none other than the enlightened Venusian sage Commander Valiant Thor. Unfortunately, this sleight of hand was necessary during most of the 20th century due to heightened Cold War tensions and various threats that had been made against Thor and his family, who were working hard to end warfare and nuclear bomb testing on Earth. Since conspiracy researchers like Jim Keith, William Cooper, and Gray Barker had the ear of the public, it was crucial they be among the first Earthlings contacted. Thor worked closely with Barker, in particular, contacting many UFO witnesses and convincing them to write books and articles about their experiences, thus keeping flying saucers and the machinations of the deep state at the forefront of alternative news. Thor was not appreciated at all in the Soviet Union and was constantly under surveillance by Eastern Bloc agents. Today, he remains a staunch opponent of dictatorial regimes and their attempts to control Pres. Donald Trump. (Thor has even claimed that Trump is the Antichrist, penning a book on the subject called Oh, Hear Ye! The Trump of the Super-Deceiver: Mystery Man of Darkness, 666.) Thor even went undercover as a US military trainer and intelligence official, working with Air Force and Navy officers such as Dan Fry, Calvin C. Girvin, Albert K. Bender, William F. Hamilton, William Mills Tompkins, and Mel Noel. Many of these contacts came before Thor’s forced internment in the Pentagon between 1957 and 1960, after which the Thor family became more circumspect about working with citizens of our planet. At one time, Thor worked closely with Nikola Tesla, sharing all the knowledge he could with that advanced human, even though some of it may have skirted the fringes of galaxial law (which states that we should merely observe underdeveloped species rather than a 1.
