I know that intellectually. I can see that clearly with someone I haven't ever bought into, like a Kamala Harris or Larry Krasner. But Bernie was such a big part of my turn to radicalism that I still have some emotional attachment to him. I like him personally, so it disappointments me when he does stuff like this.

Also, as someone who has followed him for a decade before he ran for President, I think he has become more and more of a liberal, especially over the last 2 years. So part of my surprise is his continued turn from somewhat radical social democrat into purely liberal career politician.

  1. Fuck you

  2. Capitalism doesn't produce safety and comfort for the vast majority. I'd personally take Soviet style society over current capitalism (though it has been rightfully pointed out that soviet style economy was not communism, but state capitalism). That being said, I would rebel against that too.

I will be asking them, but from what I know the community needs access to healthy food and affordable housing.

I think some other projects that might be good are:

  1. A Gym or fitness facility/community
  2. A Really Really Free Market
  3. An anarchist library
  4. A place for people to hang out
  5. A place to organize training that would focus on organizations that could support people in crisis without having to call the police

I really want to expand what I'm thinking about though and start with a very wide net and then focus down on what would be most helpful to the liberation of my community.

What does everyone think the Underground Railroad is today? Bones talks about, and I agree, that they can serve as an amazing example of decentralized network that fought with great success against a massively violent and oppressive system. So what might that look like today? Building up places of safety? Rescuing people from capitalism? Rescuing people from ICE and/or prison?

I am not saying we have to be capable of any of this today (we frankly aren't), but if we start to build the foundation today, we will be capable of it in the future. So what should we be building to?
