#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.
left strategy, etc. Show more
things people should always consider working towards on the left that are just as important as front-end direct action and activism:
- establishing fundraising venues that all leftists orgs can use and which will hopefully allow for more efficient and practical fundraising efforts
- gaining contact information and email lists to send out activism info, fundraising pitches, etc. to
- creating messaging systems and platforms in general to facilitate communication and cooperation
- working with other leftist groups to trade skills and practices and praxis
- developing accessible, clear messaging and fundraising pitches
- creating and preparing propaganda, flyers, posters, etc. for mass distribution
- supporting the development of leftist political and social infrastructure in general
ancestry dna services reproduce whiteness by erasing cultural and historical specificity. the idea that you can be "40% scottish" as a material thing is horse shit. if you did genealogical ancestry and found that your great grandparents migrated from glasgow after a local industry failed, that is actually material and locates you within history.

There is no mythical past to return to, no matter what some of the stories say. Messiah is in the future.
IHRA, israel/palestine Show more
one of the many issues with the IHRA definition of antisemitism is that it attempts to silence all discussion of whether it's racist for israel to maintain a Jewish majority at the expense of Palestinians' basic human rights. and, well, it is.
Solarpunk, thinking aloud Show more
I feel like the overlap between solarpunk and anarchism is heavily represented on this instance. Some people seem to write as if solarpunk is just a new flavor of anarchism, but I insist that it is not.
Solarpunk is very compatible with anarchism, and there are shared goals and values. But regarding methods, the overlap is narrower.
I don't see solarpunk on it's own as being anti-state. It isn't pro-state either, which makes it compatible with anarchism.

Thread about compliance and capitalism, twitter, functioning labels Show more
Wondering out loud if anybody has written about the inter-relation of capitalist labor demands and developmental so-called disorders.
It seems to me like all of this pressure to adhere to neurotypical standards is not about providing support (obviously), but turning us into workers, on the one hand, or effectively (or even literally) punishing us when that's not possible.
Contrary to the assertions of a certain famous self-appointed community spokesperson, we can't all just go out and get jobs.
Our support needs are real: pep talks and bootstrapping is just cruelty.
Once again, as I've posted before:
""High functioning" is used to deny support.
"Low functioning" is used to deny agency."
