My lovely trans comrade has asked that I share her friend's top surgery crowdfund.
Also, does anyone know the philosophy tube video where they talk about the 'do you have a responsibility for what you don't know' thing? I remember the example they used is a person putting a severed pig head on the doorstep of a Jewish building like just as a joke without understanding the context of their actions.
A contradiction in anarchism is that we're like: none of this bullshit is your fault, its the fault of the rich and powerful. But we're also like: you have the ability to make this world less shit if you work together with your class to eliminate the boojwazee. Idk, I guess its only a contradiction if you believe that you have a responsibility to prevent harm when you have the opportunity (which I do). But what is more complicated is whether you have to take responsibility for something you don't know (for e.g. that a better world even is possible). But even so, it would be difficult to say that someone who believes in anarchism but does not act anarchistically is to blame at all for this bullshit.
#SunDIY I made a new patch for my bag, it's not too bad I think for my first time sewing in a while.
"The spread of statistics is the spread of capitalism – which, running out of far flung lands and unexploited natural resources, now colonises our entire lives by mapping out and selling the aspects of existence once uncommodified."
A weird contradiction in liberalism is how it both places responsibility on and takes responsibility away from the individual. On the one hand you alone are responsible for the condition of your life whether it be poverty or riches, and on the other you have absolutely no control over the way society is run and such things can only be changed by so called great men of history.
And the way that this destroys the dignity of those in poverty is horrifying.
Just read Anarchy by Malatesta, and while I didn't learn much that I hadn't already learnt from breadtube, one thing I realised was that I was thinking of anarchy as much more standardised than it ought to be. Like I was thinking 'every town would have these specific organisations, and they would be structured like this' when really such organisations ought to just be created and organised in the way considered best by those in that situation. Perhaps even commonplace ideas such as federation would be booted in the face of a more suitable alternative.
Sunbeam City is a anticapitalist, antifascist solarpunk instance that is run collectively.
