News and up to the minute commentary:



Has it occurred to folks that part of the complex about the protestant work ethic is assuming that it's always in play? People motivated themselves before the Protestants. I personally only bring that crap up in the most extreme cases: when you can see that people literally don't know what to do with spare time or mistake alienated labour for the meaning of life or other completely toxic things like that.

Chopping wood feels good while I'm doing it and I know its practical and useful. Anarchist projects with my friends are the same, unless we let them get too abstract or derailed somehow. So like, by the time the ghost of the protestants is being conjured, you've already shit the bed. Do we need to be paranoid about it before we even start or just by asking a question?

Until 8.30 it's hard to understand due to echo. A cheap trick to improve audio quality would be to speak under a blanket. Looks silly but works.
