So you go to Wal Mart to buy your groceries because it s so damn cheap but then you realize Wal Mart is hiring very few full time employees and not offering reasonable health care to its employees and it s walking employees through the process of how to get Medicare not to mention they re closing down small businesses by exploiting foreign economies to get the lowest possible fucking cost so Wal Mart s making YOU pay medical benefits for ITS employees and replacing good jobs with shitty ones and you don t want to support that not to mention most of their food comes from the big corporations that have copyrighted their grains and are in the process of pushing small farms out of business by suing them for copyright infringement after their seeds blow onto the smaller farmer s land so you decide to shop somewhere else and isn t it time to go organic anyway so you drive over to Trader Joe s and load up your cart that feeling of guilt finally subsidingSo you get home and you unload your reusable bags and load up the fridge and then as you slide a boxed pizza into the freezer you see printed across the bottom Made in ItalySo now you re shopping for your groceries at a different store from where you do the rest of your shopping adding to your carbon footprint not to mention they re transporting your pizzas across half the fucking earth before they land on your shelf So you may not be selling out your next door neighbor but now you re shitting a big one right on Mother Earth s face You head down to the local farmer s market and buy some little pygmy apples the size of clementines and they re all weird colors but they re from some local farm and you buy some locally made bread and buy some wait what is this Red Bull Doritos All of a sudden you realize only the fruit here is local and some of the bread so you find another farmer across town you can buy beef from and another farmer who you can get pork from and now you re buying all locally and driving all over God s red desert to get everything you need and spending twice what you did at Wal Mart and spending half your saturday collecting food Now you re contributing to the local economy and not giving money to the giant food corporations that are trying to push small farms out of business but you re still driving all over to buy the shit and burning through petroleum like a motherfucker Face it when it comes to the continuity of life on this planet you are a pest You re the renegade cell eating away at all of the nice and friendly cells around you I know I m not telling you anything new right now you ve seen The Matrix you ve heard about overpopulation global warming oil spills and you know how totally absolutely fucked polar bears are right now but it s always been like that ever since you were born and we keep coming up with new sciences so inevitably something will come up to save the day right We ll take some polar bear DNA and store it and once we re all caught up with Jurassic Park technologies we ll bring em back And by the time we get to there we ll be able to stop raising cows we can just raise steaks little flat cows that don t have brains don t have needs other than maybe watering them and spooning nutrients into their slack mouths and sea urchin like chicken creatures without any minds that we can make into chicken fingers and none of them will feel a thing so there won t be any uestion ethically speaking right RightDon t hit me up with your playing God argument because that s bullshit We play God when we amputate a gangrenous leg when we remove a tumor when we brush our fucking teeth So what is really wrong with growing steaks in soil and not raising cows in huge concentration camps where they hang out in their own shit all day What s wrong with doing away with coffins and simply mulching our loved ones They re going in the dirt either wayIf we re being utilitarian is our urchin chicken happier or less happy than our chicken in a lightless pen with ridiculous pecs so oversized his legs are broken What about the chicken who has gone mad and is now pecking other chickens to death Probably urchin chicken I m just saying That said I wouldn t eat urchin chicken if I wanted to go out on a limb and say a company would be reuired to even TELL me the product I was buying was urchin Warning this product is made from something that tastes like but isn t a chicken They don t tell me when my steaks are cloned or through what fucked up chemical reactions they ve made my food so I have my doubts What s wrong with growing a mindless food animal much the way we grow corn or rice or soy What s wrong with growing mindless clones of ourselves just for the purpose of harvesting their organs This would be an easier uestion to answer if I wasn t an atheist and I could uote an instruction book but I can t I have to answer the uestion and I ll give an answer that Atwood kinda does but doesn t we don t know what will happen We didn t know sea walls would increase erosion in other parts of the river when we first started building them We didn t know that lighthouses would kill tons and tons of birds because birds fly toward the light We didn t know that carbon emissions could be a problem until we d flooded tons of them off into the atmosphere So why shouldn t we use science to make the world cater to our every desire and impulse Because we can t even predict the weather Oh you want me to talk about the book Yeah I guess I could do that As you can tell by my meta review this one gets the gears in your head turning But the characters were all flat and although full of potential ended up dull The post apocalyptic world we re reading about is intriguing as are the new creatures that have replaced humans The bizarre freakish animals created by science are also perfectly horrific That said some of this feels like a pretty big stretch According to Atwood we ll eventually be desensitized enough that we ll enjoy watching people tortured to death online and we ll also like watching little children having sex with grown men And I m not talking about in a 2 girls 1 cup watch it once because it sounds fucked up way I mean she imagines people will sit around watching this shit all the time Perhaps I m a prude but I don t think either of these will ever become popular with than a small audience My cynicism only goes so far I

REVIEW Oryx and Crake

CHARACTERS Ñ PRIMACLEANSEPLUSUK.CO.UK ☆ Margaret Atwood Margaret Atwood ☆ 1 READ & DOWNLOAD READ & DOWNLOAD É Oryx and Crake Nd mourning the loss of his best friend Crake and the beautiful and elusive Oryx whom they both loved In search of answers Snowman embarks on a journey–with the help of the green eyed Children of Crake–through the lush wil. One Generation AwayI find it difficult to tell whether Atwood s dystopian fantasies are meant as constructive social criticism or as sarcastic prophecy Recent headlines suggest that her prophetic skills dominate and with them her anticipatory sarcasmIn the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal and the MeToo movement for example the British actress Joanna Lumley is reported to be fervently hoping that not all men are bad As Spencer Tracey said in the 1955 film Inherit the Wind when told by the trial judge in the Scopes monkey case that he hoped that Tracey wasn t mocking the court Your Honor has every right to hope So no Joanna it s hard to find a good one but please go on hopingI think it s fair to say that there is little hope for males in Oryx and Crake Certainly not for the protagonists of JimmySnowman nor the eponymous Crake who are both thoroughly misogynistic from puberty onwards They humiliate females in their fascination with kiddie porn and their fantasy of women as either saints or incompetents But the obliue references to male oppressors goes far beyond the characters of the story If I interpret Atwood correctly she includes Adam Smith Moses Freud Darwin Gandhi and perhaps even the genetic scientists Watson and Crick as symbols of a male dominated corporatocracy And she s undoubtedly right The XY genetic make up is clearly defective After all how does one otherwise explain the recent tragedy in Toronto in which ten people were killed and another fifteen seriously injured This insane atrocity was carried out by a so called incel that is an involuntarily celibate male His murderous grievance was against women because they found him sexually unattractive His considered strategy for revenge was random homicide by motor vehicle One such nut case would be embarrassing for man kind but it is reported that than 40000 men subscribe to a Facebook account which promotes an Incel MovementAtwood s anticipation of the Incels is remarkable Crake is a Jim Jones type of scientific genius who is responsible for a world wide genetic make over Part of the Crakian genetic re design for humanity thereby creating the children of Crake is the ritualization of sexual activity so that males don t feel bad when rejected by prospective female mates Otherwise the world would continue to be plagued by the single man at the window drinking himself into oblivion to the mournful strains of the tango But such things could escalate into violence Extreme emotions could be lethal If I can t have you nobody will and so forth Death could set in As a solution the losers in courtship rituals in Crake s new world immediately lose all sexual desire as well as their glowing blue penises as soon as they receive the negative news Men are pigs and are in need of fundamental reconstruction in other words even by their own assessmentOr accurately men are pigoons according to Atwood s story line Pigoons are one of the many new species created by modern genetic splicing In this case of pigs and raccoons Other varieties include rakunks snats wolvogs bobkittens spoat giders and rabbits that glow with the genes of jellyfish These invasive and predatory animals are mis attributed as the Children of Oryx This is another misogynistic swipe since Oryx is an Asian girl sold into slavery who becomes both a porn star and Jimmy s feminine muse a dig at Jung whenever he has enough booze to stimulate alcoholic hallucinationsOne might think that Atwood s literary reach might have exceeded her intellectual grasp in conceiving such strange creatures as pigoons But in today s news appears the astounding announcement that pigs brains are now being kept alive outside their bodies The scientists involved apparently all of them men believe that it is possible to repeat this remarkable feat with any mammal And that therefore inter species splicing is indeed feasible Human immortality some believe is at hand The children of Crake indeed human beings hope they can stick their souls into someone else some new version of themselves and live on forever It is not just their genes that are uestionable Male minds are philosophically harmful in their rationalization of male power as beneficial in an Invisible Hand sort of way The benign logic of competitive personal ambition for advancement for reputation for wealth for making the world better is a mere excuse for power seeking The male mind is warped in its essential isolationism He Jimmy wanted to be himself alone uniue self created and self sufficient The uest for power ensures only one thing an increase in the destructiveness of power Another way of saying the same thing an increase in power reuires exploitation of the environment of animals and of other people particularly of women Someone or something always loses in the competitive hormonal struggle Crake made the Great Emptiness say the menThe zero sum game in the male dominated world is enshrined by the children of Crake in its creational mythology Crake made the bones of the Children of Crake out of the coral on the beach and then he made their flesh out of a mango But the Children of Oryx hatched out of an egg a giant egg laid by Oryx herself Actually she laid two eggs one full of animals and birds and fish and the other one full of words But the egg full of words hatched first and the Children of Crake had already been created by then and they d eaten up all the words because they were hungry and so there were no words left over when the second egg hatched out And that is why the animals can t talk Crake in other words not only eliminated sexual rivalry he also destroyed the possibility of intelligent conversation Even Jimmy his disciple and uondam advertising copywriter recognizes the profundity of the loss Hang on to the words he tells himself The odd words the old words the rare ones Valance Norn Serendipity Pibroch Lubricious When they re gone out of his head these words they ll be gone everywhere forever As if they had never been Crake s debasing of language is actually part of an ideology The whole world is now one vast uncontrolled experiment the way it always was Crake would have said and the doctrine of unintended conseuences is in full spate This ideology is I think the central theme of Oryx and Crake It is an ideology of chaos of irrational rationalistic inuiry and technological development an ideology which conforms to the competitive driven strangeness of masculine nature The latest headlines from California about Bill Cosby s conviction make it difficult to disagree with Atwood at any point The Elephant in the Living Room Make Television Work for Your Kids friend Crake and the beautiful and elusive Oryx whom they both loved In search of answers
