@GreenandBlack ...Yes. As Bowlich said, rural North America is telemediated now, highly propagandized. And not just white folks. Rural self sufficiency traditions (good) have curdled into reactionary capitalistic individualism (bad).
I can say that arguing from ideas as a blank slate or from the local language works much better. No one is going to read Marx. It’s just not on. But presenting collective strategies to fight exploitation with local meetings works. >
@GreenandBlack Rural organizing requires being oblique. Coming in “looking lefty” isn’t a great idea. Reading elites as “city slickers” can work. Getting local institutions on one’s side, being mindful of not feeding petty rivalries, is tricky but important. That means, welfare office volunteer cliques, community centre cliques, the Grange, miners, churches. Say “amen”, pass the ammunition, and expect to be surprised to who will sign up for fighting the man with a canny bit of bluewashing.
