Podcast Ep 81 Organizing: Dead or Dreaming?
This episode takes on some though questions I don’t hear asked by others on the Left. The reality of organizing is in some ways taken for granted. I cover the end of CHOP and the existence of other autonomous zones to discuss the trend away form having organizations. I discuss many points on this from my time in Occupy, to how the current police overhaul movement has taken shape. In the 2nd half I cover at length a Book review to launch into digressions about class war, system change strategies, and wondering where activism can go that it hasn’t already. Are we doomed to continue repeating the patterns of our age until it all falls apart?
