Doc Î La planète des singes ☆ Pierre Boulle

La planète des singes Á Uce wear clothes and men are speechless naked exhibited at fairs used for biological research On the planet of the apes man having reached to apotheosis of his genius has become inertTo this planet come a journalist and a scientist The scientist is put into a zoo the journalist into a laboratory Only the journalist retains the spiritual strength and creative intelligence to try to save himself to fight the appa This is a book that deserves to stand the test of time I think it's as valid now as it was back in the fiftiesLet's ignore the movies for just a moment They're important in their own right for capturing a cultural zeitgeist and for showing us all how damning cultural bias can be One can make the argument that the Planet of the Apes movies underscored the 60's put it all in sharp relief But I'm going to talk about the book about why the book needs to be read nowCultural bias is everywhere All around us It's in the very air we breathe In general we don't see itOur assumptions make us prisoners The apes are the epitome of Western Thought Casually racist in everything they do they rationalize everyone OTHER than themselves into a kind of slavery Whether it's about cultural superiority scientific superiority military superiority or ANY reason to make themselves appear important than the OTHER they take itBecause what would happen otherwiseRhetoric would fall apart giving way to a careful observation of the real circumstances People are being kept in cages They're experimented upon They are left in atrocious conditions and made to fight for scraps to survive The purpose is to turn them into animals FIRST in order to prove the original assumption that they are animalsIf this isn't classic racism I don't know what is Every argument they make must revolve around the basic assumption that THEY are better than US If the argument doesn't fit it is thrown outOnly OVERWHELMING evidence to the contrary can lift a single human out of this bondage and but the great emancipation only works for this single humanThe pervasive racism persistsClassic cultural biasWe are fully immersed in it We feel the hopelessness underlying their bulwarks of rationalizations We are made small helpless even as we retain our dignity in all the tiniest of ways And ultimately we lose It takes a whole society to change a whole society Doc Î La planète des singes ☆ Pierre Boulle
