Rallying and Mustering Nonviolent Forces for the Humanitarian Invasion of Ukraine
Phase 2 of The Hawke Plan™
I’m sorry to say that it looks like this plan might be calling for an invasion of Ukraine in the winter by unarmed civilians in order to stop a war. It’s a terrible plan. I don’t know who put me in charge.
If you don’t know what this is about:
What’s the plan again?
I don’t know what the actual plan is because I haven’t been able to reach Ethan Hawke so all I have is blog posts. Near as I can tell there’s 1 core element to the plan and then 4 optional components I’m attempting to attach to the project with staples, bubble gum, and duct tape.
Let’s call the optional bits Addons because that’s fun.
Core Plan: Pope Francis and Ethan Hawke lead a march into Ukraine, comprised of Ukrainian refugees returning home, intended to inspire a cessation of hostilities.
Addon 1: The Humanitarian Invasion of Ukraine can Arise! from every adjacent nation— including nonviolent forces originating from Russia — in order to maximize the cultural impact of the call for peace.
Addon 2: The Humanitarian Invasion of Ukraine can Seize the Means of Service in order to optimize the logistical capacity of the march by bolstering it with the massive economic output of megacorporations.
Addon 3: We can simultaneously use the First Conference of Common Understandings and Shared Ontologies in order to figure out a bunch of important stuff about our world and civilization.
Addon 4: The Next Great Pilgrimage can be an ongoing process where people continue to form massive transnational collective groups intended to go places, stop horrible bullshit, and fix things.
This plan sucks
In the absence of the single greatest philanthropic effort in the history of our species, by a wide variety of elites from a wide variety of nations, the people participating in this march will be critically undersupplied. The march will have a much higher risk of failing and the inevitable death toll will be much, much higher.
Yes, there is an inevitable death toll. Ethan Hawke may not have known this when he proposed it but that’s how it’ll go down. I’m sure Pope Francis realized it almost immediately. A plan like this can only result in casualties given the nature of the journey and its destination.
Just because receiving a wide variety of support from the various elites that own and control our planet is unlikely to happen doesn’t mean this plan can’t work. Our civilization has given us Amazon Prime and Hello Fresh, Starlink and Better Help, Costco and Samsung. The Global Supply Chain is the most powerful and complex esoteric system in the history of our civilization.
The Global Supply Chain basically a synthetic god and the news has shown us of late that it’s an angry god. Maybe it would be happier with us if we were using its overwhelming power for something substantive instead of making cheap shit and pollution in some places so we can make piles of garbage and pollution in other places.
