the most ludicrous thing about 'tHe EcOnOmY' as a reason for lifting covid restrictions is that just giving people money would be better for the economy in every measurable way

uspol, COVID, venting/irony 

I find it ironic that I am told as an anarchist that I am destructive and want to kill people but yet I didn't allow a pandemic to ravage through millions of people, killing/maiming them, and destroying the economy. Just something that I am musing because I am having an increasing number of students being quarantined

US Politics: Biden is still bad actually. 

So I'm not saying Biden is literally == Trump.
But I am just going to point out he ended his speech with "And may God protect our troops."

I really don't know about your personal struggle, but mine doesn't really end with a kinder, gentler Empire. Biden is still a representation of the agressively imperialistic US political culture.

We should recognize this as the pyrrhic victory it is and prepare to have to firmly entrenched our position in anti-fascism and anti-racism in order to meaningfully agitate for a better tomorrow.

The history of colonization we live through means this is always a necessity. But the unfortunate truth is a victory by the standards of the hegemony will be viewed by many as a victory full stop.

Electoral politics can not save us. At the best it can get out of the way enough for us to do the real work. Settler-colonialism will always be the default state of the government of the US under its constitution. That history can not be unwritten through simple participation on its terms.

Trump was the Enemy, Biden is the Enemy. Complacency is the end of resistance. Take your breather, we all need it. Decompress from the abuse of an incompetent tyrant and steel yourself for the work ahead.

Anarchism does not mean bloodshed; it does not mean robbery, arson, etc. These monstrosities are, on the contrary, the characteristic features of capitalism. Anarchism, or socialism, means the reorganization of society upon scientific principles and the abolition of causes which produce vice and crime. Capitalism first produces these social diseases and then seeks to cure them by punishment.

anarchism (leftism), uspol, moving forward 

The long and short is that if we can build communities that are capable of functioning on their own, we win. Most of us understand this but to do that we need to let go of ideological purity a little and just act. Diversity of tactics is the only way forward. This means sometimes working through local governmental frameworks, if that is the most expedient way to achieve our goals.

I am guilty of this so it doesn't come from a place of judgement but we anarchist and leftist need to act more and doompost less. We need to go out and talk to people (not necessarily about anarchism) to build communities. This election was won by a narrow margin of minority voters. We need to prop them up more and amplify their voices. The fight is long and hard and never-ending but we need to hold on to hope 1/2

Analysis by Democracy Now's Juan Gonzalez finds that Trump share of white male voters was same as 2016, and white female's share went *up*.

Meanwhile armies of young people, especially of POC, did enormous voter registration and outreach to win Arizona and Georgia.

So Dem establishment, while you were wasting time chasing moderate Republicans, young people of color went out and saved your a**. Don't forget it!

If you find yourself grateful for GA voters this election cycle, remember: You're grateful for the mobilization of black and brown voters by dedicated black and brown activists. Because I guarantee you us white folks aren't doing most of the lifting here.

Does anybody know where I can find reliable information on the Green New Deal? I want to add it to a lesson I am teaching my Environmental Science class
