Awesome Banu Subramaniam !!!
https://www.linkedin.com/posts/uwa-press_we-need-other-logics-for-our-approach-to-activity-7203868877296918528--zoa

I just closely, carefully, and with my well read literate and 35+ years scholarly and professional practises years well informed,
read this article.

If the article has, we may label them, political sides, expressed by awesome Banu Subramaniam, by Zoe Knapp and by awesome Dan Simberloff and Ken Thompson,
then the well evidenced truths expressed in each of these political sides,
for many years and decades I am aware of and agree with.
https://www1.wellesley.edu/wgst/faculty/subramaniam

In my 35+ years professional experiences and 54 years life-long seriously cultured-nature-person life experiences,
awesome Banu Subramaniam has expressed the deepest truths and least hypocrisy, of the expressors in this article;
while the journalist and the three additional expressors,
show to my awareness that they are still catching up with the depth of awareness and reflection, awesome Banu Subramaniam expresses.

So next for me to read awesome Banu Subramaniam's new book.

"

Everything is clean to the clean-minded; nothing is clean to dirty-minded unbelievers.
They leave their dirty fingerprints on every thought and act.
They say they know God, but their actions speak louder than their words.
They’re real creeps, disobedient good-for-nothings.

It takes no intellectual genius nor philosophical genius nor any genius form of thinking,
to realise the basic reality that – by the actual definition of the word :
Only the recipient can evaluate altruism (proffered).

Please beware, quotation: "
This is a question directed at iNat staff: today I stumbled over this article published by Smithsonian Magazine about a month ago.
In the latter part of the article it says:
The iNaturalist algorithm isn’t the only system built with the platform’s data. Google Lens, a Google image recognition technology, is also partially trained on iNaturalist data in order to recognize images of species.
This data is used for more than just research. Deep Learning Analytics, an algorithms startup that was acquired by General Dynamics Mission Systems in 2019, also made extensive use of iNaturalist data as part of a contract with the U.S. Department of Defense. The idea was to build an app, called BioThreat ID, for the military to identify invasive species like vipers and inedible fungi, according to documents obtained through a public records request. […] Today, the app is functional, but General Dynamics Mission Systems hasn’t made it widely available to download.

...

Given the extraordinary development of AI technology, I think this is a topic where many users would appreciate proactive transparancy.

Career works include many parts such as for example :

• professional roles in field ecology, field botany, ecosystems regeneration and restoration, working with first peoples since the early 90s in Melb., ecological and botanical surveys, mapping, monitoring, plants and seedlings identification including grasses, sedges and rushes (uncommon skills), extensive ecological (geo-)databases design, construction, use and management, herbarium specimens' collection, preparation, databasing and identification, GIS (all aspects see below), etc.;

• practical getting hands dirty roles in pest plants removal and herbicide treatment, ecological and culturally informed burning, genuinely ecologically sustainable farming —soil depositing— and nursery propagating of indigenous plants' species, etc.;

• professional roles (office based with p/t fieldwork data collection), in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and databases (DB) design, construction, use, analyses and syntheses, integration, management, training staff in, field data collection systems design and integration, high precision GPS organisation, integration and use, computer programming and coding, Apple Mac and iPhone–iPad OSs, MS Windows OS, Office, etc.. - specially skilled in professional best practices of ecological subject matter GISs-DBs.

The above professional career parts include roles I've had in Au: state, national and local governments, first peoples and others' community organisations, not for profits, companies and more.

Today (2021 Sept. 21st) I coined a quote, regarding any systematic thinking topic:
"Ignorance based absence of evidence has nothing in common with a well attested evidence of an absence based on comprehensive survey results' real knowledge of the evidences of presences, uncertainties and absences".

2021 Oct. 8: " Credentials do not comprise a religion, hence do not let anybody suffer from the fallacious delusions of credentialism ". (~ism per se refers to ideology per se of any form).
In systematic thinking reality, credentials just summarise an institution's snapshot in time assessment of an individual's academic practices within a small disciplinary subject, so long as the assessed person didn't cheat any of the assessments;
which far too many people have told me, confiding that they have done and in my honesty I refused to do or to accept from other persons.
Again, not a supremacist religion and in reality, not nearly as important as too many European ancestry ethnocentric, perverts, sickos and evil imperialist sociopaths have pretended.

In reality any question has the minimum three answers: Yes. I do not know. No. If you have too much arrogance most of the time to say the admission of I do not know then you really do not know much about nor even have awareness of reality in general.
I do not do nor initiate fighting yet defend honest good faith values and myself to completion, when fought with by other's initiating it.
And constant competitiveness, mentally ill people and sub-cultures do – in Christian terms people under the influence of the confused and confuser, deceived and deceiver, self-mislead and misleading, self misdirected and misdirecting, extremely delusional and deluding, most evil extreme arrogance, fallen angel satan.

After ca. six months deliberation, communication and standing up to a minuscule minority who targeted me for buttons pushing sneaky abuse, then denial of that abuse, gross lying false narratives about my person and then hate speeches to rub it in when they cyber–gamed the so called community standards to try to put that over me too, including gaming the good faith presumption;
I have deleted all except one good example observation to iNat good faith users, of my deliberately maxed out 916 observations. Thus 915 I have totally deleted from iNat, including several thousands of my photographs I originally uploaded here.
I have all of these observations and many thousands more on community controlled places in the internet and my backups.
I have all my plants and animals photographs of course, more than 14,000 of them, including in backups.
Much relief from this rabbit hole and underneath the ground surface rabbit warren with too much of demagoguery unlit dead ends' holes (metaphors obviously).

Quotation: "

'Us' and 'Them'

   A further challenge to closure builds on the violence of totalising monologue.
Whose past and whose present are implicated in the moral work of engaging the past in the present?
Monologue is another primary form of closure.
Critical theory of recent decades has shown western thought and action to be dominated by a matrix of hierarchical oppositions which provided powerful conceptual tools for the reproduction of violence.
In this matrix the world is formed around dualities: man/woman, culture/nature, mind/body, active/passive, civilisation/savagery, and so on in the most familiar and oppressive fashion.
In fact, however, these dualities are more properly described as a series of singularities because the pole labelled 'other' (woman, Nature, savage, etc.) is effectively an absence.
This point is articulated extensively by feminist theoreticians.
Luce Irigaray (1985), for example, shows that the defining feature of woman under dualistic thought is that she is not man.

   Ecofeminists extend the analysis to include 'Nature', and show that the same structure of domination controls women, Nature, and all other living beings and systems that are held to be 'other' (Warren 1990, Salleh 1992).
Val Plumwood (1994: 74) speaks directly to the centrality of this structure: 'the story of the control of the chaotic and deficient realm of "Nature" by mastering and ordering "reason" has been the master story of western culture.'
Within that 'chaotic and deficient realm' were all those others who were classed outside the 'Us' that is the hero of the story.

   Stripped of much cultural elaboration, this structure of self/other articulates power such that 'self' is constituted as the pole of activity and presence, while 'other' is the pole of passivity and absence.
Presence is a manifestation both of being and of power, while absence may be a gap awaiting transfiguration by the active/present pole, or an enabling background; in either case, without power and presence of its own (Plumwood 1997).

   A crucial feature of the system is that others never get to talk back on their own terms.
Communication is all one way as the pole of power refuses to receive the feedback that would cause it to change itself, or to open itself into dialogue.
Power lies in the ability not to hear what is being said, not to experience the consequences of one’s actions, but rather to go one’s own self-centric and insulated way.
Plumwood (2002:27) notes two key moves in sustaining hierarchical dualism and the illusion of autonomy – dependency and denial.
The pole of power depends on the subordinated other, and simultaneously denies this dependence.

   The image of bi-polarity thus masks what is, in effect, a singular pole of self.
The self sets itself within a hall of mirrors; it mistakes its reflection for the world, sees its own reflections endlessly, talks endlessly to itself, and, not surprisingly, finds continual verification of itself and its world view.
This is monologue masquerading as conversation, masturbation posing as productive interaction;
it is a narcissism so profound that it purports to provide a universal knowledge when in fact its violent erasures are universalizing its own singular and powerful isolation.
It promotes a nihilism that stifles the knowledge of connection, disables dialogue, and maims the possibilities whereby ‘self’ might be captured by ‘other’.
Levinas equates these totalising monological narratives with war.

   This is not to say that monologue itself lacks debate and conflict, but more deeply that it is self-totalising in only including what it can accommodate within its own narrative, and by insisting that others, if they appear at all, appear as they are considered by that monological narrative.
Indeed some monological narratives are so broad as to be able to encompass everything, but only within the terms of the narrative.
Elizabeth Povinelli’s (2002) brilliant new study of Australian multiculturalism gives a much more complex face to public monolocultural discourse than I am able to present here.
She focuses on the 'cunning of recognition', examining the impossible necessity for Aboriginal people in certain contexts to be able to produce for the nation an identity that the nation defines as authentic (see also Merlan 1998).
This is one of many ways in which monological narrative scoops up others on its own terms and within its own self-understanding (see chapter 3).

   The dismantling of the war-like theory of 'self' is a necessary step … ... ...
