"To continue doing our analytical work we need to add our stories to those that are storying otherwise. It's an insurrection that refuses the paralysis of critique. That the world is finished because we know how it works. And you are stupid because you don't know how it works and you are just an activist, or you are just a witch, you just believe in something, you are really stupid... we know how the world really works. That kind of arrogance which is the arrogance of the scholars, the arrogance of the intellectuals. Our poison is the poison of that which we poison the very thing that we think we are doing. We think we are contributing to the story but we are feeding it poison by our own relentless being smarter than everybody else with the latest version of our theory." Donna Haraway
We need to keep telling our stories alongside others that are already telling their stories so that our world-ing does not become one of thinning the storylines. We need to make the weak stories stronger and the strong stories weaker to create balance and peace.
