Deep adaptationは「深い適応策」って意味で、私たちの社会は持続不可能で、効果的な対策（すぐゼロカーボンなど）は取れていないから、数十年（数年？？？）以内に崩壊するしかない、という、「崩壊から生き残る人はよりいい社会を作れるように」の社会活動の動きです。今年本は出版されて、編集者のJem Bendellさんとのインタビューを英語にまとめて、XR日本の週一回のZoomで行う話し合いで日本語に訳させていただきました。

Naomi Osaka Is Part of a Larger War Within Sports: who should make the rules? And how much power do athletes have to protect themselves?
June 2, 2021
Congratulations, tennis. You’ve won neither the battle nor the war with Naomi Osaka, but you have just bullied one of the biggest stars in your sport into quitting a major tournament that could use the publicity she would have brought to it.
“There was outrage around the world when 1,134 people died in the devastating Rana Plaza tragedy in Bangladesh on April 24th, 2013. Horrific images showed bodies being pulled from the rubble following the collapse of an eight-story garment factory complex in Dhaka as desperate families stood by, waiting for news about their loved ones. “
Eight years on, garment workers are still losing their lives while making our clothes: – In November 2020, 12 people were killed in an explosion at a garment factory in Gujarat, India. – In March this year, 20 people were killed and dozens left injured after a fire… in Cairo, Egypt, – a further eight killed and 29 injured when a 10-storey building collapsed in the same city later that month. – Meanwhile, in Gazipur, Bangladesh, one person died and another 42 workers were left injured following a factory fire.
As night fell on August 11, about 150 people assembled at Gyoko-Dori Avenue near Tokyo Station to protest against a series of rape cases that ended in non-guilty verdicts.
Since the first event in April, the Flower Demoーinitiated by feminist activists Minori Kitahara, Eiko Tabusa and Akiko Matsuo, and held on the 11th day of each monthーhas expanded to 18 cities nationwide and continues to evolve into a larger social movement in Japan.
In late September 2019, an estimated 6 million people joined climate strikes across the globe, demanding urgent action to address the climate emergency facing our planet. Rallies in global metropolises such as London and New York saw hundreds of thousands take to the streets. Meanwhile in Japan, a country of 126 million people, marches drew a combined total of less than six thousand. After the country had suffered months of record-breaking rains, floods and heatwaves – where were Japan’s climate strikers?
The Social Dilemma (movie) shows that social network services promote outrage and division because that leads to more views which leads to more profit- and to the breakdown of society and democracy (as is happening right now across the world, particularly in the US)
By contrast, Polis is a social network that promotes and amplifies agreement, so we can find our common ground.
THIS IS THE FUCKING ANSWER!
