Next time you run into someone calling Tsipras and SYRIZA a "radical leftist" or even a "leftist", show them this picture. They are aligning Greece with the worst imperialists of the area, giving legitimacy to Netanyahu right before the election, and signing to jointly promote "energy stability" (i.e. oil and gas extraction and pipelines) in the Eastern Mediterannean. The worst kind of geopolitics and drum beating, with the worst kind of climate-destroying investments, with the worst possible partners.
I move to make the Three Billy Goats Gruff the official anti-trolling mascots.

Beautiful old school printing.
#Lunarpunk is the other face of #Solarpunk. It's important to remember that it's ALSO utopia-punk. Here is my most intuitive example: think of a night that everyone feels safe walking around in. That pretty much sums it up, really.
But more generally: a night with the song of crickets, with friends waiting for you at the park with guitars, with lying on the ground stargazing, and with singing songs of farewell to loved comrades who came to visit but now have to return to their homes in the asteroid belt.
I recently found out about the "Semiotic Square" (see http://www.signosemio.com/greimas/semiotic-square.asp and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Semiotic_square ) and I've been trying to understand where #solarpunk fits in. This is far in as I've managed to go, starting from the category of Utopia. Can anyone help? What do people think?

Sunbeam City is a Libertarian Socialist solarpunk instance. It is ran democratically by a cooperative of like-minded individuals.
