I think that the thing about mutual aid is that there has to be some effort that move beyond just providing for the needs of individuals. We have to build things that replace the state and capitalist apparatuses for the needs that we're providing.

i agree and i think that if mutual aid is done in its true style, it would automatically replace capitalist exchanges and binds. but I'm not sure if all mutual aid does this. a lot of mutual aid is go fund me type thing, and I find it to be good in emergency settings, but it's not really truly mutual aid.
