I don't know if it's just me, but I'm seeing a lot of really cool Anarchist media popping up in general on the internet. With all the firing of left leaning journalists/artists, they are becoming more radicalized. Like when cracked got rid of Cody Johnston, who is now making a grand 5 part series on dissecting the fascism of trumpism. Looking forward to that! Plus I'm hearing lots of great stories about radical kids seeing through the reactionary bullshit.
Also, Raddle's den of thieves is getting bigger with some more growth on f/shoplifting. Seems that the users there generate some very helpful and productive content. Lets never forget who the real thieves are.
Y'all are great.
Love, Rage, and Solidarity!
Just goes to show that unemployed creatives are much more willing to take risks. When they phase out workers even more and replace with AI, maybe we'll finally get a revolution. We won't bite the hand that feeds us until it stops feeding us.
I'm seeing a lot of anarchist blogs and stickers in my local area and in my language, it's awesome. There's also a lot of nice stickers mocking generation identitary, which always puts a smile on my face. I have a feeling that things are going in the right direction. Even the hipster-anarchists that join mostly because they think it's cool are beginning to read and learn, and that's quite something.
What's generation identitary?
AKA Generation Identitaire, Generation Identity. A group of young patriotic, neo-fascist, anti-immigration "activists". They're trying to make nationalism and lightweight nazism cool and appealing to the youth, and they're doing a surprisingly good job at it, with fancy logos and big actions. They're growing fast in Europe.
Their core website is here: https://generation-identity.com/
What's not listed there is the Danish group amongst others.
Personal life shit is probably making me look like a jerk right now if anyone's even looking, but I just wanted to thank you again for being an awesome new(ish) mod, GrimWillow, and since localville certainly isn't reflecting the reality you're describing, maybe it's time to print out some stickers or staple a few posters to some telephone poles.
We used to have a vibrant anarchist community here before our local Occupy went sour and I'm still trying to figure out what happened. All I see is gentrification and such horrific security culture that it must be provocateurs and honeypots as well as college freshmen who just never had a chance to learn any better.
Localville is dreadfully normal as far as the wrong side of the tracks not too far from a college town goes so I'm probably too paranoid about doxing myself.
I'm just not that important.
It certainly is cheering me up to see our rapidly growing band of Robin Hoods. I still wish there was something behind the scenes I could do to cheer them on, but it would probably just be an unnecessary and annoying distraction at this point.
