@kensanata I'm a published author, and I think that the original copyright term of 14 years with the option to renew once for 28 years total was perfectly reasonable.

so yeah, here I was, just minding my own business, quietly screaming to myself like I have been for the past couple months, when i decided on a whim to finally get around to making an account here. I log in, only to unexpectedly discover this massive community of co-opers who *actually* know what the fuck they're doing when it comes to running co-ops! like, holy fuck I have so many questions

Good piece on the lineage back to of the ideas and structures of the Kurdish resistance.

"Rather than advocating the abolition of the state through an uprising of the proletariat, he suggested that by developing alternative institutions in the form of popular assemblies and neighborhood committees - and notably by taking part in municipal elections - the power of the state could be 'hollowed out' from below, eventually making it superfluous."


I think that when I'm too overwhelmed to post anything significant I'll just share pics of my many animals. Behold the newest: a year old cat named Heck.

Had my second meeting with a local media outlet whose founders are considering a as their exit plan! Both, who own 85% of the company, now seem actively interested in the idea. Next step is to convince the three younger managers, who each own 5%... :)
