The American Mythology, White Supremacy, and Gun control

The American Mythology, White Supremacy, and Gun control

The shooting in El Paso, Texas left 22 people dead, and at least 24 more people wounded. Shortly before the shooting the perpetrator, Patrick Crusius, posted a slur laden ‘manifesto’ on 8chan. This post most prominently referred to the Great Replacement conspiracy theory, which states that Europeans and people of European ancestry are being replaced by people of non-European ancestry. The shooting appears to be a pretty obvious open and shut case of White Supremacist…

Support the Symbiosis Congress

Support the Symbiosis Congress

Demand Utopia is a Social Ecology group founded in Portland in 2017. They are centered around the ideas of Democratic Confederalism, Post Scarcity, and as they put it ‘creative militancy’. A main part of their ethos is the rejection of nihilistic despair in the face of the problems we face but optimistically embracing community. They draw inspiration from many groups such as The Black Panthers, EZLN, and Rojava. Since then they have gone nationwide with…

The age of Guerilla Ecology

The age of Guerilla Ecology

The following is a primer on a concept I have termed Guerrilla Ecology. In this, we will explore a theoretical/historical basis for these ideas, goals such practices would seek to accomplish, ethical concerns, and lastly practical applications of these ideas in a way that is most consistent with these goals and ethics. I have laid this out in a way that each of these portions can be understood completely independent of each other. However, for…

However on certain points it completely dropped the ball in ways that frankly equate to colonialist thinking. It…

A New Mythology

A New Mythology

To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day 2019 I would like to briefly cover the history of Saint Patrick’s Day but more importantly dive into the modern implications of this myth and how we can attempt to transcend it. This is not an attempt to say this was the only erasing of Earth based spirituality in Europe, it is one example, but given how glorified it is even in modern times it is the one I will…

Towards a Cascadian Municipalist Party

Towards a Cascadian Municipalist Party

In Left Libertarian circles there tends to be a lot of dogmatism in regards to electoralism. On a national level these critiques have much more standing but on a local level they tend to be overly simplistic. A good example of working class advocacy on the local level is Kshama Sawant of the Socialist Alternative Party. Sawant is a councilmember sitting on the City Council of Seattle who is largely responsible for the “Millionaire Tax”,…

Community Coops – Addressing and solving the issues of Consumer Cooperatives

Community Coops – Addressing and solving the issues of Consumer Cooperatives

Consumer cooperatives provide millions of people in Cascadia and alternative to the standard Capitalist model. While they act in a way more beneficial to the average member of the working class they still share many of the same issues that Capitalist firms do. Consumer Cooperatives operate the way most firms do in a market economy but are owned and operated by the consumers themselves rather than a private Capitalist or a Board of Directors. This…
