More On Difference
Maybe islands aren't the best models for difference: difference as barricades is, perhaps, more like what I'm concerned may, too easily, occur. I wonder, as basic resources, namely potable water, are going to become at the fore of all forefronts of importance (of course in many places this likely is already the central issue), whether difference as a model for understanding the world will loose some of its currency. Overall, much of what I've posted today is just a paraphrase of one strand of Amyarta Sen's book Identity and Violence, which strikes me as a really wonderful book.
