My Agenda (since someone asked) with Addendum - Caesar gets his coin but not our souls.
Far from the blueprint of post-structuralism for a totalitarian postmodernity, which ironically props up predatory corporate capitalism and the pervasive surveillance state, from the moon, we can see the Will of the People of the Planet for balanced, Cooperative Global Governance that controls and regulates oligarchic greed for the well-being of all of humanity.
I submit, that is the cry heard round the world... for relief. The saddest part of the spectacle is that there is so little historical memory that history has to repeat the lesson, usually (I regret to say I probably should write "always") at a more tragic level of intensity, apparently in order to get the attention of leaders who ought to know better but continue to whistle in the dark.
Cooperative Global Governance or ever-worsening social upheavals and oppression... and debacles of nationalism. Take your pick. Cooperative Global Governance or a globe where Brave New World and 1984 look tame, accompanied by Distopian and Utopian organizations, of various kinds, both fanatically religious and fanatically secular, both forms of intolerant exclusivisms. The key word is "cooperative," what the world has been working at, by fits and starts, for over sixty years with the United Nations, despite all the use of it as a "tool" of nationalisms.
Another way to phrase all this is that slavery is barbaric, despicable, and leads to unhappiness among the people, destroying their spirit, often causing unpleasantries to arise from below. While it might last for a while under force, slavery seldom lasts without the most dire consequences. Human beings flourish under an Economy of Love, which is to say the material is nothing; the spirit everything. In balance, we strive to live out our lives for the humane good of ourselves and others.
So, this is my "agenda"--that the money-changers in the temple not be mistaken for God, that the suffering of humanity throughout the Ages count for something after all. God is not an idea, including this idea, but an experience, the ground of our being, to which we shall return.
The fascist, Nazi values and politics of Nietzsche, Heidegger, Paul de Man, Derrida, et al., were not conducive to civilizing, peaceful ends but symptoms of Western lust for worldly power and decadence. Romanticizing them, and others like them, in the university has not been a great success for world civilization.
From the moon, we human beings can see what is of real and lasting value.
