chatting with friends from three different countries about what corrupt, rotten bastards the cops are where we're from :acab:

This pamphlet, 'Too Many of Whom? Too Much of What?' was produced by No One Is Illegal, back in 2010. At the time there were a number of outlets, both mainstream and supposedly โ€˜radicalโ€™ that were pushing the idea that population was one of the main sources of environmental destruction. To confront the argument that controls on migration or on population as a whole was a solution to climate disaster, NOII put together this incredibly well researched, yet relatively easy to read discussion paper.

These arguments have once again began to rear their ugly heads within the environmental movement, and it is important to refute them.

Run for office y'all. You don't need to be anything. You don't need to be some kinda special 1 of a kind maverick or whatever. You'll have staff and a legal team to help you out with whatever you're unsure of. We have elected officials in congress RIGHT THE FUCK NOW who think
-babies grow in our stomachs
-carbon monoxide is good for us
-periods happen at will
-A biblical war between Muslims and Jews will bring Jesus Christ back.
-That a Nuclear Winter is no bfd.

You're fine, you're qualified.

I want to write a free, copyleft book about how to thrive on low income in the USA, because all the books on personal finance give advice like "don't buy a latte every day," instead of "first, get your staples at the food bank, and *then* any other food via food stamps."

I've been writing an outline, and I need more sources. What books and links can you tell me about that are like more the food stamp example? (And please retoot!)

When someone's a smarter feminist/anti-racist/queer-radical than me I can usually pick up new ideas from them really quickly; but when someone's a smarter marxist than me they usually leave my head spinning for a long time before the point sinks in.... :blobderpy:

First of all.... the ruling class aren't just "people with a lot of money," they're the private owners of the tools we need to build our society, and the commanders of our labor power... so jot that down!

This was a super good point in 1899, and it's even more important 120 years later.

It really annoys me when I see inequality analyzed by simply bracketing income levels, (like "the top 10%" or "the bottom 50%" or w/e). How can you approach the problem of inequality when you're completely ignoring the social structure that creates it -- capitalism?
