I think it's a little weird that people who propose degrowth don't get told that their position implies genocide.

Gets me wondering who exactly is being genocided when people say that anti-civ implies genocide.

Anybody got clarity on this?

Genocide is a complicated word. Different institutions have different meanings. Some people consider certain events to be genocide while others disagree or stand aside.

Mass murder is an easier term to define and agree on. And I am pretty sure neither degrowth nor anti-civ requires mass murder.

i just finished making a zine and i guess i'm looking for another short project. i want to make anarchist thought digestible and pretty (with pictures and concise text). if anybody wants to collab on something let me know. i can't promise i'll do it but whatever.

Landlords are Parasites and Don't Take the Baton Sitting Down are the kinds of things i'm making.

the fact that landlords consider tenancy an investment means that by definition they are earning money on the property. by definition, your rent is greater than the property value. the excess goes to their pocket. the landlord exploits the tenant to leech greater than the property value; the tenant gets nothing in return. the landlord is a parasite.

i think there's a word missing there after 'leech'?

is there? using leech as a verb. replace it with "take", to take greater than the property value. tbh, the paragraph could probably be simplified. it kind of repeats itself unnecessarily.

I like what you're doing with this stuff and look forward to seeing where this all goes.
Are you making them by yourself and (if you can talk about it) based in personal experiences?

It'd be nice if you found a good thumbnail for people who wanna post it to facebook

Don't Take the Baton Sitting Down

"Brothers and Sisters" is not a phrase I like, since nonbinary people exist

yeah just making them by myself. i'm just seeing it as a way to hopefully make anarchist ideas accessible and feel like i'm contributing something (i know this stuff is very surface level but i'm open to other things). some personal experience, but i wanted the protest zine to be more comprehensive than i could write alone so i looked to tactics used by other protesters to try and consolidate it into one document. i also didn't want to talk at length about street medic experience, since i'm not a street medic and didn't want to give bad advice, so i left some things out.

i'll see if i can do this.

fair. not an intentional slight, i just wanted a term that was relatively inclusive that wasn't "comrade", since that whole comrade thing weirds me the fuck out. i'll use something gender neutral in the future.

leech (noun) greater than the property value. noun denoting the determinant object which determines property value, is what I think u/ziq was heading at.

  • leech (money) greater than property value
  • leech (wages) greater than property value
  • leech (earnings) greater than property value

however it's just my assumption.

Yeah it is that. But the vision is quite big in terms of shrinking industry and effect on the environment etc. So I imagine it might still get the same kind of genocide argument as anticiv does, basically.

I've been feeling better recently. I'm trying to learn Nahuatl or Quechua or another indigenous American language, but I can't find the motivation to learn the vocabulary and I keep feeling like I'm horribly butchering the pronunciation.

I think it's possible to be anti-porn without denigrating the all the people involved in it. In a perfect world we could have ethical porn perhaps, but we obviously don't live in perfect world. It's great that there are sex workers who feel liberated by their work in porn and are able to support themselves, however there are so many negative consequences of freely available porn that I don't think anyone should feel bad for thinking it doesn't belong in a healthy society. It is important to be careful about the way you explain your position on it though, lest you be branded as some sort of regressive, as you said.
