Come into the nerdery and help me chew over some of the ideas from Douglas Rushkoff's book Team Human.
How do linear belief systems fuck over the planet and ultimately of course, humans too? How can a cyclical perspective change the way we are in relationship with ourselves, each other and the planet? And can we let go of the need to 'own' ideas in favor of embracing ideas buried, silenced or ignored?
The institutionalization of activism - much like charity - depends on preserving the current capitalist system. So, it feels like an apt and vital time - for a radical change.
At the same time, whatever you call it, if "it" means building for justice, grassroots autonomous power, we're on the same side - and we don't have time to burn bridges.
Meanwhile, less than a week into 2021 and we've already got men dressed up as goats taking over the Capitol building...what a time to be alive!
