I had an epiphany recently when an activist on a ventilator pointed out that it wasn’t their revolution if they died because you couldn’t keep the hospitals running.

Criticising “capitalism” only gets so far: you have to slide the better version underneath it while it’s running. You have to save everybody.

Otherwise you’ll need to remind me - and then - why you thought you’d be better.

This is why I like to watch “capitalism” closely (and lift everything that works).

#stacktivism: "owning the means of not-dying"

reallifelieselsewhere.wordpres

To wit: an aim to simply "own the means of production" is aiming too low if you can still be held hostage by being denied access to the infrastructure you need to survive (food, water, medicine, housing).

An interesting line of thought from a few years back. An intellectual ancestor of #solarpunk?
