Do you want to mod this space? Message the admins if so.

The best thing you can do is promote the forum in other Bookchinite places and bring social ecology / communalists here. Right now you're prob the only one.

Thanks ziq! I may reach out. I just thought I'd try to support this site and maybe run into some people for discussion. I've fallen out of the loop a bit, and honestly have found many Communalists to be a bit rigid. I think the ideas of social ecology are pretty compelling, and lend themselves to anarchist-communist and even unorthodox Marxist interpretations. Of course, this is blasphemy to some, but I think an "open" social ecology is really the only (and most exciting) way for it to move forward. It seems that, for all the coverage of the Kurdish stuff (which I find incredibly exciting and inspiring) and talk of Bookchin and social ecology, very few seem to be actively engaging with the ideas at more advanced levels.

Yeah on reddit especially it's a very insular community.
