All power to the affinity groups
If you've recently been radicalized, don't join some hierarchical organization that considers you a means to an end. You and your friends already constitute an affinity group capable of acting autonomously. Define your own objectives and fight.
They'll tell you that you need their leadership. No — you need to find comrades you can learn with as equals, developing a shared analysis and the skills to act. Being someone‘s pawn won’t amount shit. Arm yourself!!
Tankies, genocide denialism, fear of violence
I'm a bit, uh, terrified by how mainstream tankies are becoming. Whenever anyone mentions the Uyghur genocide or the fact that China is capitalist online they come out of the woodwork and start their harrassment campaigns.
There seem to be more and more of them and it's fucking terrifying cause if they take over the left again we're in for another century of purges from both the right and the """left""". How is this happening again? How are they gaining more traction than anarchists? Why is the side that only wants control more popular than the side that wants freedom for everyone?
If capitalism were really the most efficient way of meeting people's needs, we probably wouldn't be having so much trouble producing and distributing enough #COVID19 vaccines.
Of course, we also wouldn't be facing mass evictions—or widespread poverty—or climate catastrophe.
Guess what! I started a patreon page!
Over the next few months, I'm going to be working on a 2D hand animated short to submit to festivals. I will be posting updates on how that's going weekly, along with my other creations!
As a patron you'd see unique illustrations, sketches, & content and you also get goodies too! If you want to support a black artist and join me for an inside look on my art journey, come check it out! 🖤

White and non-black poc give reparations
"Every time [person] posts something racist, I just roll my eyes and scroll past."
"Why don't you block her, baby?"
"Because sometimes she posts legitimately funny shit."
And that's it, folks. That's why white people are still fucking racist in 2021. Because we'll put a para-fucking-social relationship above opposing oppression.
In the midst of a nation-wide rebellion, in #Philadelphia people built barricades to defend encampments, while vacant homes were occupied. In September, the city handed over homes to 50 families. @PhlHousing gives a blow by blow of how it all went down. https://itsgoingdown.org/occupy-takeover-how-philadelphia-housing-action-turned-vacant-buildings-into-homes/
