babies are tenderness, so to answer the question, yes, but let's teach them what we know of rewilding. feral babies! this reminds me of an article in GA a couples issues back about building momentum (rather than "movements") against civilization. relating this fight to boxing, we can grease up our gloves and faces to take a few blows, know when to pivot back, and strike when the blow will be a knockout!
AF F E C T I O N instills strength. Without it,
it is nearly impossible to struggle with
e x p eriences too intense and painful to endure.
Tenderness is a way of life, opposed to the
automatization of the clock and forced labor.
Robotization is a way of death, opposed to the
liberation of time and leisure, which allow tenderness to grow like a healthy trunk in the garden of
all and so spread its aroma among all beings that
inhabit the planetary garden. In contrast, globalization imposes a standard mold on our garden. It
manifests itself in a triple process: imperial expansion of capital; worldwide standardization through
economic control by transnational companies, and
domestication of the soil through monoculture,
destroying natural variety and paving the earth.
Its avarice threatens all natural cycles. The soil is
the skin and the flesh that covers our planet. Clean
air is the landscape that gives us oxygen and
p r otects us from dying, burnt by the penetration
of ultraviolet rays. Condors and Magellan sheep
have been blinded due to the weakening ozone
layer. Water gives us life. Soil, air and water are
parts of a natural cycle that pollution interrupts.
Then, fire gives us the energy we need, and the

a continuous line where past, present and future
intersect simultaneously but in an unreal way.
The notion of time is an authoritarian imposition
of the social order that justifies itself with the false
idea of progress, a model of legitimization of the
dominant order: industrialization, imprisonment
and territorial delimitation. Materially, we live in
the present, in existence itself.
Ã’Hic et nunc,Ã“ so goes the Latin refrain,
here and now. Because of this, memoryÃ‘always
active and arbitrary, changing and selectiveÃ‘
gives us a perception of our own experience.
Experience amplifies peculiarity, a process distinct
from history, this is to say from the standardization
of the official. The only common factor to all the
peculiarities there are on earth is tenderness.
Affection is a primary necessity of human beings.
Knowing, then is to understand that without tenderness and love, no revolution can be possible.
