RIP Western black rhinoceros
What a piece of work is man.
Notes toward an International Libertarian Eco-Socialism
The African mammals section of New York City’s Museum of Natural History has models of both the white and black rhinoceros found on the continent. Unmentioned in the texts accompanying the black rhino’s exhibit is the fact that its Western subspecies has since 2011 been considered to be extinct, having been driven by poaching to oblivion.
The animal’s fate is yet another demonstration of the cruelty and senselessness of capital, another victim in the sixth mass-extinction event impelled by hegemony. RIP.
