Here an except from the interview I really liked:

“I’m often trying to do is to debunk the idea that you have to be a full-time activist in order to be doing anything for the world.
I actually think you have to be a full-time human because you have to be paying attention to the fact that you’re already connected.”

Political Nihilism has never achieved anything and offers nothing to anyone. Likewise a "ruthless critique of everything existing" only achieves political inertia and smug satisfaction in armchair theorists as the world around them falls apart. How comfortable it is to criticise everyone else for trying to make the world a better place in which we find it, and how paralysing it must be to be afraid of having the same done to you. If you're not making mistakes you're not making anything.

so I've been listening to y'all bitch and moan about XR and Earth Strike and quite frankly, I agree with you. So I've been drafting up a proposal for a loose network of activists (united by shared principles rather than with any official structure, think antifa) to work alongside such groups to try and make sure the climate movement isn't dissolved or crushed, and I've posted it as a page in the wiki. Please give it a read and share it if you like it, trynna get other propaganda stuff based around its principles on the go too

“diversity of tactics!” is never excuse to avoid criticism of a movements’ tactics.

Diversity of tactics means we see the value of many different initiatives being taken at the same time, we don’t pretend to have all the answers and we try not to get in each other’s way.

It doesn’t mean there are no bad tactics, or tactics that could become much better.
Debate on tactics should thrive. And if we still end up doing very different things, we do them better because we learned from each other.

Inspired by @scottishwobbly's amazing music posts, I thought I'd coin a hashtag for sharing radical music:

Have rad music you want to share? Use the hashtag and we can build a big library of the stuff 🎼

As much as I'm into Social Ecology and Bookchin's school of thought, I can't help but yawn when I'm reading his denser works. So I thought I'd put together a wee Social Ecology reading list made up of easily-digestible essays not written by Bookchin:

Social Ecology (as a whole) - 'Communalism Pamphlet' by Marcus & Stephanie Armagi filmsforaction.org/articles/co

1. Dialectical Naturalism - 'The Trouble With Wilderness' by William Cronon williamcronon.net/writing/Trou
