I call this continuum, a culture of domination, a multi-threaded mix of custom and practice, close at hand, in us and around us, that makes the bullying, victimhood and damage of domination seem natural and inevitable.
As evidence of this naturalisation, to bring it into awareness, I collect images of my local cultures of domination. Take a look at the selection of them below. I’ve found, as I hope you will, that rather than seeming to be a given, like the weather, by bringing them out into the light of day they become more susceptible to choice, interruption and confrontation. And less undermining of ‘living from love’.
I couldn’t resist remixing it somehow, so picked some of the pictures and text and I created this video at Jumpcut. I’m not sure how well it works (thus the late night post) but here it is.
That, and the Chocolate Jesus video have me wondering what else I can do in Jumpcut.
