Hey friends, if you share my interest in 1.) praxis and 2.) pawbs, I made you some stickers. Get them here - https://dawnchapel.storenvy.com/products/25482732-these-beans-stickers
Serious recommendation: if you like solarpunk, look into AfroFuturism. It's been around -way- longer, and tbh, solarpunk was probably inspired by it. The aesthetics and ideals often overlap, and there's way more lore and fiction to read! Also, you'll be giving a platform to people that have great ideas and need the attention.
there's something here about how leftist infighting bothers me not because of how it sets us back (i think leftist infighting is really useful for pushing us forward and getting things into our brains sometimes, or at least, it''s complex) but rather because i think we tend to... we say "there isn't much i can do about that thing outside, but i can do something about this person being too tanky" and in aggregate that means we are ineffective as a whole
it's nice that we have evolving and thought-out positions on things, i really like that about The Discourse. but i'm also extremely wary of it of course, because like. there is no sense behind what gets Discoursed. by which i mean it is a literally random/chaotic process and i don't trust that because of how it can be directed by angry actors and how it hurts people who don't have enough safety net and stuff
it is hard because i have that built in human urge to weigh in on things when people around me are talking about them. but i am trying to be more in control of that feeling, because i don't want to contribute to the thing where suddenly everyone has opinions about a thing just because we're all talking about it, like, id rather be more sparing with when i do opinions i guess?
