The rebel in those gospels unfolds as a chain of outstanding but worldly practices of significant confirmation. on the grounds that those exercises don't depend upon fantasies of break out, they engender intimate changes of the self alongside the very coordinates from which they emerge. Enacting a comparative and contagious postsecular sensibility, those gospels draw at the paintings of Slavoj Žižek, Giorgio Agamben, Catherine Malabou, François Laruelle, Peter Sloterdijk, and Gilles Deleuze but rejuvenate scholarship in continental philosophy, severe race idea, the hot materialisms, speculative realism, and nonphilosophy. they suspect past the sovereign strength of the only to begin an intensive politics "after" God.

They represent a short-term boon, but in the long term do nothing to alleviate the reality of energy scarcity. 26 CLAYTON CROCKETT Money is based on energy, and money can be created as more and more energy is produced, but when available energy peaks and declines, money declines as well. 18 The unprecedented growth between 1945 and 1970 in large parts of the world is due to the exploitation of oil and the financialization of the oil economy that was established by the Bretton Woods Accords in 1944 toward the end of World War II.
In Heat: How to Stop the Planet from Burning, George Monbiot offers a radical and desperate plan to cut carbon emissions by 90 percent in 2030. He explains that “carbon dioxide levels have been rising over the past century faster than at any time over the past 20,000 years,” and the only way to account for this increase is human activity. ”5 The increase of greenhouse gases is heating the atmosphere and the planet, especially the oceans, which is melting polar ice and raising sea levels. Monbiot’s book was published in 2007, and the failure to reach any agreement at the United Nations Climate Change conference in Copenhagen in 2009 proves that the global community of nations is unable or unwilling to seriously address this problem.

Malabou argues that writing driven by “the power of the linguistic-graphic scheme is diminishing and that it has entered a twilight for some time already. 22 Plasticity means there is no dualistic separation of mind and body, matter and spirit, and, ultimately, form and energy. In terms of insurrectionist theology, we embrace the term materialism for two main reasons.
