Just finished this wonderful, thoughful, piece from some accomplices (I have a cringe reaction to the word comrade) in Atlanta.
This piece delves into how the inability to address the tensions between insurgency and escalation ended up creating a situation of frontal conflict around the Wendy's occupation, which became separated from the terrain of everyday life in which the uprising is occurring.
@tom_nomad thanks for sharing this.
What a weird vibe I got from the clipboard guy.
Yeah, that story was specifically odd, and illuminating. Can't ever remember hearing about anyone doing something like that outside of liberal events...
@tom_nomad right, it seemed super co-optive and like...intrusive? Very weird. Are you atl local?
Nah, I'm in the Rustbelt
@tom_nomad ah cool. Appreciate you sharing the story.
Of course! Let me know if there is any more analysis stuff coming from ATL!
@tom_nomad I live about three hours north but yeah I will. Try to keep on top of local and semi-local stuff, you know?
