Started donating $15 month to GEO, a fantastic online publication that maybe has the best collection of articles about cool projects of all medias out there.

Focused a lot on co-ops, but also other forms of counter-economy based on mutual self-help.

Recommend you check out the site and become a donor too.

“America and the Cult of the Cactus Boots: A Diagnostic” by Phillip Freedman. Some down home SubG inspired anti-con literature for the modern age, spouting straight from the hip!

Henry George (1839 - 1897) proposed that goods and services derived from land (everything from natural resources to cities) should be communally owned, and otherwise every individual should own all the fruits of his or her labors. His proposal was called "Georgism" or "Single Tax."

Distributism is an economic theory that emerged from the Roman Catholic Church. The general idea is that the means of production should be owned by as many people as possible rather than concentrated in the hands of a few. This might include a reversion to earlier levels of industry and an abandonment of the modern level of industry, but it might not. It might include a return of guilds of industry, but it might not.

Small town politics/policing. 

Heard today that an old lady in town got a ticket from the cop (who's not a local) for driving her golf cart to do her errands...which she's been doing forever 😡. Now's she's struggling to get around with her walker in all the smoke. The town's up in arms. Petitions are being written. The Council is gonna get an earful.

Forgot to caption. Two stickers on a bike. One depicts a bee hive and says "all we have is each other. Mutual aid." The other contains a long quote from Emma Goldman about the purpose of education being to draw out the expression of child's unique character, not turn them into robots, so to speak.

Is it just me or do almost no cyclists bother to use hand signals for turning anymore? I feel like this was much more of a thing in my youth...

Splurged on a used ebike...and I'm giddy as a school boy. 😁

You know inflation is getting out of hand when a free tire rebalancing costs you 4 bucks.

And that doesn't mean your favorite album isn't also the best thing ever recorded. There can be more than one best, after all.

WAR's The World is a Ghetto album is the best thing ever recorded and I will glare disapprovingly at anyone who says otherwise.
