Totally agree. It’s so hard

Totally agree. It’s so hard to agree on where to go from here. Criticism is mostly easy, the thing that really drew me to Chomsky (Other than I study linguistics and he is pretty prominent in that area) is he works to explain how these oppressive systems operate. It’s easy enough to point out there is a problem but to the extent that it’s bad actors or systemic and how that interacts is fascinating to me.

It’s also been his talks that have directed me to historical movements and given me the framework to criticise the abstract concept of ‘power’ and ‘authority’ on the grounds of being themselves alone and not based on their works. Before I was radicalised I did the stupid lib shit of comparing the goods and bad things that political parts did. Like oh, the left party helped unions but the right party grew GDP by 50% more in their years. Hummmm yes these are the important factors to look at.

Fuck me man I wish I could take back all my political opinions from before I was 20

Back on track though, if you know of any good texts that provide better models for criticism and an understanding of power, please link me. I only found this place and the anarchist library 2 weeks ago.
