On extinction level events, and other abstractions: a eulogy of love



Here in the West, we don’t know anything about death and passing, except how to fear it. But the best moments for me have come at deathbeds and funerals, simply because the totality is suddenly there, as well as a deep and very sweet cherishing of every breath we the living can still draw.

(NAINAMO)  Nobody can think globally, any more than one can seriously imagine one’s own death. And so when Fukushima exploded four years ago and as our skies and oceans became laced with toxicity, none of it seemed as real as the trivialities of my life.

Basically, I tried not to think about what lay across the waters. And so even now, as we are being slowly radiated to death in what has become an obvious Extinction Level Event, our planetary fate remains abstract to ourselves: more important than the trivialities, of course, but not more real. And being human, I guess I’m not unusual in that way.

Human Rights Ambassador William Gomes asks for closure of investigation against Balendran Jeyakumari

sl_womanIt is believed that Balendran Jeyakumari was targeted by the authorities in connection to her role leading demonstrations and calling for investigations into war crimes and enforced disappearances during the visit of the United Kingdom Prime Minister David Cameron to Sri Lanka for a meeting of the Commonwealth nations in November 2013.

On 10 March 2015, human rights defender Ms Balendran Jeyakumari was conditionally released upon payment of a bond of 200,000 Sri Lankan Rupees (approximately €1420) pending completion of the investigation. As part of the conditions imposed by the Colombo Chief Magistrate Court for the release, the human rights defender’s passport was confiscated and she is required to report to the police twice a month. Since the enforced disappearance of her husband during the war against the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), Balendran Jeyakumari has led a campaign demanding to know the whereabouts of missing persons who had been arrested by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of Sri Lanka.

The idea that “might makes right” can be found discussed in the works of Plato which date back to 380 BC, although the issue probably has existed since the days of the cave man. This cynical comment about the powerful can be seen in today’s world stage as powerful world leaders attempt to justify their aggressions by labeling their opponents “terrorists.” Innocent civilians are often slaughtered on both sides of the resulting conflicts, yet the “mighty” claim to have a legitimate moral authority to slaughter, while damning those who resist their aggressions as criminal evildoers. Very often, the big guy responds to resistance in a very disproportionate manner. Ring any bells?
