The problem of Tyagarah being clothes optional is its remoteness, making it a target for the socially and sexually damaged victims of our sexually repressive old-world social system.
The problem could easily be solved by making public beaches clothes optional – much safer.
Provision for those who believe we have bodies with ‘dirty bits’ could be made by declaring Tyagarah ‘clothing compulsory’.
Do we have bodies with ‘dirty bits’ or is that a deliberate piece of body-shaming manipulation?
We knew this stuff 50 years ago but while the movement spawned by the social revolution of the 60s and 70s has been growing well with over 90 per cent of people now environmentally concerned, it grew organically, not at all organised.
On the other hand the wealthy and influential with a vested interest in the status quo certainly noticed that revolution and have been thoroughly organised.
They’ve engaged in a relentless process of reinforcing conservatism. The finest legal and political systems money can buy, aided by the finest mainstream media money can buy, have done an excellent job of it. But the outcome is inevitable: we either transition to a sustainable future or, as is rapidly becoming obvious, unsustainable is terminal.
Regarding ourselves as unworthy pieces of shit with ‘dirty bits’ is probably unsustainable.
