  • Religions as frames
     OP - May 05, 2020, 08:11 PM

    The word frame is used currently to describe a perspective someone has, religions obviously frame what a believer thinks and sees.

    Just found some fascinating framing based on commoning :-)

    Free, Fair, and Alive
    The Insurgent Power of the Commons

    by David Bollier and Silke Helfrich
    From co-housing and agroecology to fisheries and open-source everything, people around the world are increasingly turning to 'commoning' to emancipate themselves from a predatory market-state system.

    Free, Fair, and Alive presents a foundational re-thinking of the commons — the self-organized social system that humans have used for millennia to meet their needs. It offers a compelling vision of a future beyond the dead-end binary of capitalism versus socialism that has almost brought the world to its knees.

    Written by two leading commons activists of our time, this guide is a penetrating cultural critique, table-pounding political treatise, and practical playbook. Highly readable and full of colorful stories, coverage includes:

    Internal dynamics of commoning
    How the commons worldview opens up new possibilities for change
    Role of language in reorienting our perceptions and political strategies
    Seeing the potential of commoning everywhere.
    Free, Fair, and Alive provides a fresh, non-academic synthesis of contemporary commons written for a popular, activist-minded audience. It presents a compelling narrative: that we can be free and creative people, govern ourselves through fair and accountable institutions, and experience the aliveness of authentic human presence.

    When you are a Bear of Very Little Brain, and you Think of Things, you find sometimes that a Thing which seemed very Thingish inside you is quite different when it gets out into the open and has other people looking at it.

    I understand religions as older ways of framing before we invented nation states capitalism socialism etc. I am proposing instead of attacking the particular religious frame we might meet we get people to understand frames and then choose one or more that fits :-) , maybe change them with the weather?

    Of course the true frame is worship of the triune Flying Spaghetti Monster, Invisible Pink Unicorn and dark goddess of chocolate

    a western-centric trinity? clearly a victim of latent christianity.

    it's unlikely that american and european thought will have much direct influence on the future - the rest of the world outnumbers them.
