My thoughts on this are very similar to what’s laid out in this podcast. I think about food as a part of a larger system that we have a relationship with. When I was eating meat the story of my food was one of slaughter and exploitation that I took part in. I have no part in the relationships of indigenous people to their food so what I think is irrelevant.
As well, I’ve noticed that white vegans insist on focusing on traditional practices like indigenous people hunting, or eating what the western world considers domestic animals, etc. as an issue moreso than as selver said “the factory farms white people created”. Most likely because of latent racist bullshit.

Use git! Then you could even host a gogs instance on a hidden server. Its fairly easy learn git if you don’t already know it, and it allows for pretty precise version control like you the kind you need. Then host it as a hidden service through either Tor or I2P

Edited to add more info.

This a great and informative article. Definitely touches on some key points. I find the part on mutual abuse particularly interesting as that seems to always be how things are framed, regardless of the truth of the matter

In my original post before the edit I mentioned that I had heard of some association with transphobia but I didn’t know the story so I removed that. That’s really messed up, and avoiding addressing it is a bit contradictory to what A!’s been saying. Thanks for sharing that.

I don’t really get the hate A! receives (It may be because of lack of awareness). The times I’ve interacted with him he’s been very pleasant. Maybe it has to do with his projects? Or perhaps it could be related to his “celebrity” for lack of a better term. If anyone has more info I’m really curious.

I do really wish that some people who have oppositional views had called in to argue. Not that I would agree with them but it would make things more interesting. This show is solid, but I think the format could benefit from some more exposure.

Also is anyone interested in a live listening thread this Sunday?

Well they laid a bunch of people off during a conference, and have pivoted to services as what seems to be a money grabbing attempt. It’s being talked about a lot on the Jupiter Broadcasting shows.

I was thinking about what an archive looks like post-collapse. Obviously having a hard drive full of books won’t matter if I don't have electricity. Maybe it looks like storytelling? They are similar in ways that I think are pretty important: They can act as a collection of general knowledge and of shared history. As well as disseminating that info it also lets people re-engage with the lessons previous anarchists learned and perhaps take something different away from it. I still am not sure what that looks like practically but I guess that’s the fun part!

EDIT: I would love to hear about the mutual aid network if you’re willing to share.
