What you can do -

@dazinism funny how they claim that Rojava has rejected statism while at the same time people are being conscripted into the Self-Defense Forces.

Are they? I hadn't heard that
I've not deeply researched statism, not sure what attributes are/not necessary
My suspicion is that any human organisation at the scale of a state will end up sharing many features with states

Think a huge chunk of humanity could do with better methods for organising at all scales from household to international

I dont unquestioningly support Rojava, but I'm fascinated by the way folks there are organising & I'd like to see how things progress
