38 - Dual Wielding Powers

March 24, 2020

We practice safe socializing and ask the tough questions like where is Joe Biden? Is he in cool-down after boofing nootropics for the town hall debate? We discuss the Democrats and the politics of defeat, and their current unwillingness to corner the political market of meaningful social assistance, instead pushing for means-tested garbage that’s gonna piss everyone off and slow things down. We discuss the possibilities of cybernetic socialism and scalability of mutual aid networks. Also, the DOJ wants to suspend civil rights during a national emergency.

We tease our bonus for the week - Kate Mullany and women's labor organizing in Troy in the 1860’s before our wildflower for the week - when we chill out, nature heals.

And to finish this episode, please enjoy Brit's rendition of Kropotkin’s Conquest of Bread: Chapter 9: On the need for Luxury!
