<![CDATA[Revolutionary archaeology reveals the deepest possible Anthropocene | Aeon Essays]]> https://aeon.co/essays/revolutionary-archaeology-reveals-the-deepest-possible-anthropocene

Humanity’s transition from hunting and gathering to agriculture is one of the most important developments in human and Earth history. Human societies, plant and animal populations, the makeup of the atmosphere, even the Earth’s surface – all were irreversibly transformed.

<![CDATA[Capitalist Catastrophism | ROAR Magazine]]> https://roarmag.org/magazine/capitalist-catastrophism/

Is Mark Fisher’s “capitalist realism” this generation’s “end of history thesis”? For nearly thirty years Francis Fukuyama’s contention that “Western liberal democracy” represents “the end point of mankind’s ideological evolution” has measured the ebb and flow of history.

<![CDATA[The Day the Dinosaurs Died | The New Yorker]]> https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2019/04/08/the-day-the-dinosaurs-died

If, on a certain evening about sixty-­six million years ago, you had stood somewhere in North America and looked up at the sky, you would have soon made out what appeared to be a star. If you watched for an hour or two, the star would have seemed to grow in brightness, although it barely moved.
