Man I love you all here on the Left but we got our shit super backwards. We engage primarily in social capital exchanges in private, jockying for social status for who of us is the most woke. Then. we refuse to engage with that same system publicly. I'm seeing academic discussion dying in private circles while at the same time only seeing academic discussion in public. That's not how the system currently works:

You can't beat it by being exactly the opposite of what you need in any given context. Academic debate and discussion are for small circles to hammer out consensus. Public debating on Twitter and Youtube doesn't reach consensus. You also can't avoid that the public sees only your social value and values your beliefs less due to the very-Right Overton window. Therefore you cannot ignore the fact that you must engage in effective social capital exchange in public when representing the left. Losing your shit to the whole world or debating the far right doesn't work.

The "purity" values of the Right has crept in. It's not impure to engage the system effectively and have attainable goals.

Discussing self-care with a mastopal today I am reminded of this line by Audre Lorde:

“Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation and that is an act of political warfare.”

The first half of that might be obvious to some but it was a revelation to me. For much of my life I held the opposite view which then impeded my self-care. Thank you, Ms Lorde.
