Greetings! Not sure if anyone is here much anymore. I've been getting back into political reading and trying to move forward and organize locally and things. It would be nice to find some social ecologist-types to discuss things with. Social Ecology and Communalism can indeed be an exciting read!

I remember how excited I was to read Post-Scarcity Anarchism. Its discussion of "preconditions" and how to identify them as a basis for moving concretely toward the world we wish to see was compelling, along with the critique of authoritarian Marxism. Its advocation for "study" or "affinity" groups seemed to provide a pipeline from the theoretical directly to social action.

Currently, I'm reading Biehl's biography of Bookchin, Ecology or Catastrophe, and re-reading works such as Damian White's Bookchin: A Critical Appraisal. If anyone is reading this, maybe we can get this Communalism forum a little more active again?
