Ep 82: Organizing: Alive and Kicking
From the open questions of the last episode I turn to the actual examples of collective organizing; focusing on student debtors and Amazon workers. I then pull from my own experiences as well as a story of a game dev and past revolutions to explore horizontal organization in the economy and justice. I even touch on how the project of new horz structures can address ‘cancel culture’. I can’t guarantee the feelings of the privileged though.
