Funny to think what you want to show off, instead of the good photos i mostly like the one that got photobombed by a pigeon 🤔 https://mastodon.xyz/media/F0kxrZYINXUmTLyTQhw
From the idea that a society needs a central authority to quantify it's assets and rule them efficiently you can logicially follow corporatism. This is seeing society as a body in need of a head, while in actuality our bodies stay distinct and hierarchies always stay apart from the rest. A society does not need a head, because a society as a concrete reality is nothing but totality of it's participants. It serves no higher end. Well, it would do that if it existed. We don't live in a society. We live in cages.
Do you follow me and I follow you?
Here's your warning: If I see you post about the debates I'm going to ask if you've read up any on the IWW and if you haven't, I'm going to guilt you for watching the debate instead of reading that stuff.
It means more; that shit on your TV is entertainment; every relevant regulatory body has told us our past few elections weren't legitimate. Democracy is bureacracy is inequality.

Organising, Being Local
Don't be disparaged by national and international politics. People are organising in your local area. Check out how to volunteer and help with schools, libraries, local food banks. The people there may not have the same politics as us, but think of yourself as a seed. Your actions can be used to help grow a radical, verdant garden in your community.
The Fascists infiltrated politics by playing a long con. We can play the long game too. Go and play the civic game. When you run into a wall or resistance, organise with your fellows about getting around it. If the organisation you are working with doesn't do something you want, talk to the folk working there. Someone will want to help. There are always people looking to help.
Speak your heart. Listen to others. Take care of yourself. We will get through this. We are the Ones we are waiting for.
Fuck a world of forced specialization. You can be a farmer AND a philosopher. You can be a carpenter and a portraitist. You can be a lawyer and an electrician. You can be a mycologist and a flautist, a bookbinder and a skateboarder, a chemist and a stripper, an upholsterer and an Aramaic scholar, a gymnast and a fisherman. You can be so many things, any combination of things that you love or like or are interested in or want to try. Idgaf! If you only want to do one thing? That's fucking awesome and good too!
But I refuse to accept a world where a farmer must be just a farmer, a carpenter just a carpenter. Labors of body, mind, and spirit can all fit together, no matter what capitalism says.
every AAA studio video game gives its workers salaries. they were paid for making it. the sales don't go to the workers, they go to the companies that own the workers. If it's not an indie game, it's actually a moral imperative to pirate it, if you can, because that money is better off not in EA's pockets. What's good for the workers is unionization. Or perhaps the end of capital, so studios can be formed on a voluntary basis purely for the pleasure of making collaborative, interactive art.
If you want a straightforward, practical project to help contribute to leftist, anticapitalist, and anarchist movements, then learn a new language. It is without a doubt one of the most limiting factors in our movements.
What is happened in Iran earlier this year? If I knew farsi I could maybe tell you, but instead I just know what the NYT said happened.
I’m not surprised tiny homes and sustainable living are being coopted by the Mill/Billionaire class to say "See? These upright animals LOVE living in voluntary jail cells that are void of basic sanitation and are psychologically damaging! Fuck health and safety codes! Poverty is a choice! Boooootstraps!"
philosophical anarchism, brekshit
In Britain, one of the national prides of the country is the National Health Service (NHS).
When Brexit was being campaigned for, they said "We send £350 million per week to the EU. Let's fund our NHS instead"
The our is key. Because that's how the NHS is generally talked about in Britain. "It's not the NHS, it's OUR NHS. We built it, we own it, it's ours." It constructs an unhealthy image of what healthcare is: a service. A service is by definition not something one can own, it's something one can provide and another can use. The NHS is not a product that we own.
But when we propertise it in language, it becomes property in practice. Contrary to the myth spread by the Brexiteers, it's more likely that the NHS will be gutted of its funding, lose access to its largely immigrant-driven workforce, and be sold off for scrap to the Americans.
