On the Critical Realism of the ‘Dark Mountain Manifesto’ in Relationship to the Myth of ‘Human Resources’

In these comments on the ‘Dark Mountain Manifesto’ of Kingsnorth and Hine (2014), and its authors’ reflection on it five years later, I point out the origin of the three ‘myths’ of progress, human centrality, and separation from nature (as ‘environment’). I see a straightforward relationship between these myths with the organizational myth of ‘human resources’ in which people at work are seen as  a trainable energy source of dubious motivation, rather than an embodied consciousness in unceasing transformation and self-development.
