“You are both the detective and the criminal.” Tim Morton Dark Ecology
I turn the key in the ignition, I’m a criminal.
I forget to take my own bag to the grocery, I’m a criminal.
I fired my clay sculpture at x degrees, I’m a criminal.
I read about lie of carbon capture, I’m a detective.
I forward articles about ocean of plastic, I’m a detective.
I hear how Europe failed to pass resolution to go carbon neutral by 2050, I’m a (sad) detective.
At some point you figure out (detective) that you did it (criminal).
