radical softness is maybe the best political theory i've ever heard! caring about things and forgiving people for their mistakes and letting your guard down and feeling unreservedly passionate and emotional is freeing and powerful!

maybe this offer will be more relevent once ive posted some more tutorials but if anyone has a specific mend they need help with, lmk and i can make a tut for it❣️

i need to patch over a stain on my quilt so i’ll make a tut for that very soon 👍🏼

Here is my mother’s new cat, Oliver. He’s a demanding sweetie, hopped up on the back of the couch to bonk my head with his and everything.

One friendly walleyed lynx-point Siamese (at least part-Siamese). A great addition to my extended family.

(Image descriptions aren’t working in my browser, unfortunately, but the photos are pictures of an affectionate cat)

By the way, I'm happy to find local activist/leftist groups for you if you DM me your general area (county, closest city, etc). I've been doing this for a while so I know generally what to look for, though I'm not as familiar with the organizations outside of the so-called US, and the language barrier will make it tougher in countries where English isn't the primary language. But I still try and rarely ever come up with absolutely nothing

Please boost this! Getting organized at the local level is very very important!!!

Huh, after searching for it, there's no hits here, so I wonder if there's any interest in starting a #skillshare tag. Something like #sunDIY like #skillshareSaturday (alas I'm short on a pithy pun) where we post mini tutorials for whatever we'd like.

We must be prepared to #resist #Ecofascism .

From Desert:
> in extreme situations people turn to extremist solutions
> in most places, rebel movements are more likely to be statist than anarchist

As the climate disaster unravels, its political implications will be just as deadly as its direct ones.

Support your local #antifa .
Organize with your local #anarchists .
Join your local #FoodNotBombs .

We can, should, and do fight #ClimateChange , but what is strategy without contingency?

As tough news start to weigh harder on the shoulders of all of us, I think it's time to give thought to the idea of action for action's sake.

So many radicals are paralyzed by fear of inefficacy, and thus deprived of the joy of standing up against the system.

This is a truly staggering fact: Wall Street bonuses totaled $27.5 billion last year, which is more 3 times the combined annual earnings of *all* American workers employed full-time at the federal minimum wage.

We can, and must, raise the minimum wage and tax the rich.

#SolarpunkReporting or maybe #reporting in general:

Have you heard about Solutions Journalism? Its main idea is to step beyond the regular investigative journalism and show solutions to the problem which worked in other places.

It combats news fatigue and allows people to see that they _can_ do something. It gives hope where regular journalism just exhausts us with a constant stream of bad news.
