Finished a first draft of the English version of "Chapter 9 - The Road of Women and the Family." Roughest first draft yet, lots to change, interesting chapter -- not what I expected. Big old Hegel quote -- didn't see that coming. Should be interesting to people familiar with extra-economic activity in household and informal sectors.
Getting evicted from your apartment for no reason sucks, but knowing that your landlord runs an international nonprofit surely takes the sting off, a little bit. I bet she's super-woke too, and I'm sure that also helps...er, somehow.
Meanwhile, if anybody in Atlanta's got someplace for this healthcare worker and her kids to live, sounds like they could really use some new digs.

@GuerillaOntologist As someone who's not meeting this expectation, I think it's exactly right.
The NYC "Bad Old Days" seemed pretty great Show more
Last night, I got to go to the home of my best friend's godmothers, two adorable old lady lesbians living in a SoHo loft they've been in since the 70s, and they told the story of how, thanks to tenant regulations and housing laws, they were able to buy their building along with the other tenants... and *evict their own landlord from his office*.
I've never even dreamed a thing like that was possible, and I nearly jumped to my feet whooping with glee.
on the myth that peer-to-peer self-organizing can be conflict-free and inclusive because the people involved are reasonable, good and rational.

Is there a hashtag for mutual aid ideas? Something with suggestions for mutual aid things and stories of people giving and receiving?
Cause I think that'd be real cool!
Just posted Chapter 8 of Solidarity Economy Roads by @luisrazeto on GEO!
This chapter is about how and why a #SolidarityEconomy does a better job of serving ecology, as well as humanity, than the current system.
As always, thanks to @Matt_Noyes for providing the translation.
Pro tip for the coming #collapse: the most important survival skill is how to grow trust.
@socalledunitedstates anarchism in everything but name is far preferable to anarchism in name only, which is partly why I say that teaching values independent of ideology is appealing to me. Telling a kid, "hey, we're anarchists, and this is what that means" teaches that the primary concern is the term "anarchism." I'm more inclined to teach "these are the things we believe in, and that's why we're called anarchists," not the least because it offers adaptability and the freedom to choose whatever label fits best (or none at all) rather than assigning "anarchism" inextricably.
