TOTW: A Revolution Is Upon Us
Given that we have an idiot in the Whitehouse. Given that we have driven the alt-right back to the shadows where they belong. Given that a blue wave is coming. Given that a whole generation of tyrants are about to pass (can I hear a Kissinger!). Given that the fascist creep is on the run. Given that we are running down the walls. Given that 2018 is the year of Mo. Given that we are finally ready to take environmental problems seriously.
What does anarchist victory look like? Does it look like fighting off repression or does it look like material advances against the state, capitalism, and the industrial world powering both? What would those advances be? How about disarming the police. Full stop. How about celebrating the end of the current economic boom (and hastening the end. How would we do that)? Is the logic of "find each other" & "get organized" enough and how do we get started when we are trapped by these stupid websites (yes, like this one) and social media platforms?
If a revolution is possible in our lifetime, where do we begin?
