I really wish I read this one when I was first coming to anarchism. I was daunted by the length, but didn't realize Berkman wrote 'What is Communist Anarchism?' in plain language, with the intention of making it understandable to anyone (not to mention easily translatable) #OurReads
The secret goal of Mastodon is to create a majority-anarchist environment such that any individual who joins will be exposed to those ideas to the extent that they're properly explained and normalized to them, then occasionally bring in new batches of people with enough time in between for the old batch to be subsumed into the antiauthoritarian mindset before the new batch arrives
It's all part of our Cultural Anarchist agenda, you see
Maybe the reason NTs think that autistic people don't have facial expressions and have a monotone voice is because they just can't read facial expressions that aren't NT lol
Personally every autistic person I have met had very expressive facial expressions and tone of voice, even ones who themselves thought they were monotone. Way more expressive than NTs, at least in my opinion.
Just like intellectuals made 'queering' into a toothless thought experiment that doesn't really effect queers, they seem to be doing the same to the verb 'decolonize'.
To decolonize means to stop the process of colonialism and get the colonist out.
So you can't decolonize a museum by changing the wording of the signs, you have to actually return the stolen art, ALL of it.
You can't decolonize Anthropology by writing papers. You have to actually stop studying POC to advance your white career.
Jam. 19. fae/faer or they/them. Muslim. Autistic. DID system. Anarchist. Queer (no truscum or exclusionists).
