Jeg har lest The Dispossessed av Ursula K. Le Guin som januarbok #elidas1001lesesirkel

The Dispossessed handler om forskeren Shevek som drar fra månen Anarres til moderplaneten Urras. Folkene på de to planetene skilte lag for 750 år siden da en stor gruppe anarkister valgte å flytte til Anarres. Mye av boken følger tankene til Shevek rundt oppvekst og voksenliv hos anarkistene, og besøket hos det kapitalistiske samfunnet til landet A-Io på Urras.

Dette er en science fiction som inneholder mye politisk filosofi og det er ikke min favoritt. Likevel likte jeg å lese om livet til anarkistene. På en måte føltes det like utopisk som livet på en fremmed planet er i utgangspunktet. Shevek prøver virkelig å forene to folk, men det er mer usikkert om de to ønsker å bli forent.

Dette er ikke den beste 1001-boka jeg har lest. Men den hadde sine lyspunkt.

He said, “You put another lock on the door and call it democracy.”

You are afraid of us, there. You fear we might bring back the revolution, the old one, the real one, the revolution for justice which you began and then stopped halfway. Here in A-Io they fear me less because they have forgotten the revolution. They don’t believe in it any more. They think if people can possess enough things they will be content to live in prison. But I will not believe that. I want the walls down. I want solidarity, human solidarity.

There are souls, he thought, whose umbilicus has never been cut. They never got weaned from the universe. They do not understand death as an enemy; they look forward to rotting and turning into humus.

We are poor, we lack. You have, we do not have. Everything is beautiful here. Only not the faces. On Anarres nothing is beautiful, nothing but the faces. The other faces, the men and women. We have nothing but that, nothing but each other. Here you see the jewels, there you see the eyes. And in the eyes you see the splendor, the splendor of the human spirit. Because our men and women are free—possessing nothing, they are free. And you the possessors are possessed. You are all in jail. Each alone, solitary, with a heap of what he owns. You live in prison, die in prison. It is all I can see in your eyes—the wall, the wall!”

He explained to Atro that he now understood why the army was organized as it was. It was indeed quite necessary. No rational form of organization would serve the purpose. He simply had not understood that the purpose was to enable men with machine guns to kill unarmed men and women easily and in great quantities when told to do so.

“You see,” he said, “what we’re after is to remind ourselves that we didn’t come to Anarres for safety, but for freedom. If we must all agree, all work together, we’re no better than a machine. If an individual can’t work in solidarity with his fellows, it’s his duty to work alone. His duty and his right. We have been denying people that right. We’ve been saying, more and more often, you must work with the others, you must accept the rule of the majority. But any rule is tyranny. The duty of the individual is to accept no rule, to be the initiator of his own acts, to be responsible. Only if he does so will the society live, and change, and adapt, and survive

“My world, my Earth, is a ruin. A planet spoiled by the human species. We multiplied and gobbled and fought until there was nothing left, and then we died. We controlled neither appetite nor violence; we did not adapt. We destroyed ourselves. But we destroyed the world first. There are no forests left on my Earth. The air is grey, the sky is grey, it is always hot. It is habitable, it is still habitable, but not as this world is. This is a living world, a harmony. Mine is a discord. You Odonians chose a desert; we Terrans made a desert. . .
