In the context of this and some other stuff I've been goin through...I'm really starting to contemplate the superfluousness of a lot of knowledge and efforts. I might need to do less reading/planning/skill acquisition and just more direct action helping people.

Don’t treat direct action as if it won’t help you build on your knowledge of the world. It’s a learning experience just as significant as reading theory, if not moreso.

True that. I guess more of a dichotomy of theory/practice. I've been getting too far off-balance and not constantly letting one inform the other.

For me it's pretty much the following:

Building as autonomous and resilient a mutual aid society as possible within your bioregion but also with substantial interconnections beyond regions. But that means we have to do everything, always - all the reading planning and skill acquisition (as well as all the means to transfer that knowledge) and all the infrastructure- and relationship-building.

But it's baby steps out here.
