Excerpt from An Unnatural Order – Lantern

Read an excerpt of the fully revised and updated An Unnatural Order: The Roots of Our Destruction of Nature by Jim Mason.

It’s been almost 30 years since the first version of this book was released, but it’s very relevant today. How we relate to the other-than-human world is still not widely discussed. An Unnatural Order looks at the big picture about othering of all kinds.

“It wasn’t so much about relating toward someone else; it was more how I wanted my body to be. I wanted my body to be a particular kind of way that it just naturally was not. I am addressed as a man, and I can understand that. I’m more of a feminine person, and I still felt more comfortable being seen as a more feminine man, because that’s how I was.

It’s like the discussion about whether you’re Black or not. Sometimes, it’s hard to explain to someone who isn’t Black every little detail of my life that’s conglomerated into making me who I am as a Black person. Because the beginning and end of any identity I may have isn’t only pain and oppression, and I may not want to describe myself in those terms. I may want to say, ‘I’m Black because of my culture, because I am beautiful and handsome.’ “

Ethics on the Ark: Zoos, Animal Welfare, and Wildlife Conservation - 1560986891 | Smithsonian Books Store

Emma Marris's article on zoos (https://www.nytimes.com/2021/06/11/opinion/zoos-animal-cruelty.html) echoes not only the work of Jo-Anne McArthur's photojournalism in CAPTIVE, her collection of photos of animals, human and nonhuman, in zoos and aquaria, but the ethical considerations of philosophers Lori Gruen, who writes about animal dignity in ENTANGLED EMPATHY, and Dale Jamieson, whose work on our moral consideration of nonhuman animals in zoos reaches back to the mid-1980s. You can find his writing in the excellent volume ETHICS ON THE ARK. See link.

Pit Bull Flower Power Reader Photos

Since 2014, French photographer Sophie Gamand has been composing portraits of adoptable pit bulls from more than thirty shelters and rescues throughout the United States. Many had been waiting for years for a home. Adorning her models with handmade flower-crowns, Gamand tells each dog’s story and celebrates their inherent personality, vulnerability, and individuality.

Posted and shared widely on social media, the portraits—at once charming, candid, and deeply affecting—have not only led to hundreds of dogs finding loving, forever homes, but have also spurred efforts to destigmatize an animal whose reputation for violence says more about us than it does the character of the dogs themselves.

For decades, pit bulls have been demonized by society and portrayed as hellhounds. They’ve become the most feared, hated, and abused of all companion animals...

The Marble Room – Lantern

Bill Hatcher, author of The Marble Room and Principles of Flight, grew up in a racist, religiously supremacist milieu in rural America. Desperate to redefine truth, he left home to serve in the Peace Corps, teaching geography at an all-girls’ boarding school in Tanzania. His Bible Belt racism and religious beliefs crumbled as he learns to consider God in different ways. https://lanternpm.org/books/the-marble-room/

What comes after religion? This question is at the root of how an increasingly self-aware humanity will struggle to define itself in the 21st century. William Hatcher’s memoir, The Marble Room, explores this question by taking readers on an archetypal adventure of self-discovery. The author grew ...

In the spirit of Rainer Maria Rilke’s Letters to a Young Poet and conceived of as a modern-day vade mecum, Letters to a New Vegan consists of 32 humorous, evocative, spirited, and even tender epistles offering advice, counsel, and inspiration from activists and leaders who’ve followed the vegan path for years. The aim is to ignite, sustain, and refresh the passion and commitment of those who want to live more consciously and compassionately on the planet, with other people, and with themselves.

Grief Is Love: Inspired by Six Saints and Three Angels by JJ Flowers is now available: https://lanternpm.org/books/grief-is-love/

“The beginning of grief is overwhelming. Everything must stop as you attempt to absorb what has happened, which is impossible. You cannot fathom it. There is little to no comprehension at first. Instead, a pervasive numbness descends over your mind, body, and soul.”

In the space of eleven months, Jennifer Flowers’ husband of thirty-three years died as did their son, Jonpaul. Grief bust her heart wide open. Grief Is Love is a hard-won, honest, and profoundly sensitive guide for anyone who has lost someone dear to them, and a companion as you move through the stages of grief.

"People come into our lives for a reason during a season. People come into our lives to teach us valuable lessons. People come into our lives: shining jewels, gems, pearls, diamonds, and emeralds. People come into our lives to impart their wisdom. People come into our lives with the grace of God/Spirit....Although I am no longer friends with Monalisa at this present time, I want to express my gratitude to her for helping me to open my eyes about veganism. We all must show gratitude to people who paved they way for our successes, achievements, and accomplishments. I wasn't mentally and spiritually ready to embrace veganism during our friendship; I know now how veganism is a mental, spiritual, and ethical choice. Monalisa sparked this in me, but I was too blinded, clouded, and distracted to get the lesson, jewelry, and wisdom. I totally get it now—thirteen years later. People come into our lives for a reason during a season. We never know who God/Spirit sends into our lives. I am proud to proclaim how a Black le***an vegan saved my life.—Donald Peebles

The Supremacist Syndrome: How Domination Underpins Slavery, Genocide, the Exploitation of Women, and the Maltreatment of Animals by Peter Marsh is now available: https://lanternpm.org/books/the-supremacist-syndrome/

Proponents of human exceptionalism claim that only humans possess certain morally significant capacities, and as a result are entitled to be treated better than members of all other species. In the last fifty years, scientists have discovered how these capacities are shared by other species, which only raises the questions of how and why we evade responsibility for inhumane behavior, not only to animals but to one another. To answer these questions, Peter Marsh examines three different ideologies: ethnonationalist supremacism (the Holocaust in Hungary), racial supremacism (the rule of King Leopold II of Belgium in the Congo), and gender-based supremacism (men’s treatment of women in Victorian and Edwardian England). He shows how supremacists applied mechanisms of moral disengagement to legitimize and evade personal responsibility for oppressing and exploiting members of a less-powerful group.

Marsh considers whether these different types of supremacism have common features and compares them to how we treat animals to examine whether that, too, causes unjustified harm to members of a weaker group and is wrong in the same way racism, sexism, and other supremacist ideologies are. Finally, he asks what we can do to overcome human supremacism and other supremacistideologies, providing practical examples of cross-cultural collaboration, humane education, veganism, and extending concepts of identity beyond borders of culture, race, and nation.

Our material is mostly arrived at through the verbatim telepathic gift of Uthrania Seila Sentana-Ries, and must be referenced to the fact that we are all living at the end of an era and the beginning of a new one, and that spiritual and emotional preparedness for events to come is absolutely crucial. You may contact me via my facebook/messenger page if interested.
We are looking for a trade publisher to take on the official publication of many of our books, beginning with this one https://www.trafford.com/Bookstore/BookDetail.aspx?Book=185768 which has been with Trafford Publishing with whom we have since lost contact. My next post will give you an idea of the array of books which we are at this time making available to the public for free in pdf format.
