"One can view technological civilization, in particular its accelerations in the twentieth century, as an attempt to drown the questions of Nietzsche's chief witness, the tragic Diogenes, in comfort. By making technological living tools of unknown perfection available to individuals, the modern world aims thus to silence their uneasy inquiries about the space in which they live, or from which they constantly fall." - Peter Sloterdijk, "Bubbles"

On Mayday I didn’t pag rent! Might tomorrow, but I might not also

I desire a rain so strong I am literally soaked to my bones.

Going in circles?
Don't feel you've been foiled.
When viewed from the side
Your path has been coiled.

“We think many pro-revolutionaries rather enjoy the antagonism of capitalist society and the part they play by supporting a side.” which makes me think of why so much anti-capitalist art comes off as corny. you look like a cartoon character. this is not to say all anti-capitalist art is bad, but so much of it is, for lack of a better term, corny.

discussion of global anti-blackness 

"When we map the history of the modern world and mark time by Black lynchings—spanning from the Arab, Transatlantic, and Indian Ocean slave trades to the apartheid government sponsored intra-Black violence and massacres that marked South Africa’s “democratic transition” to the “Rainbow Nation”; from “post”-apartheid South Africa’s recurring violence against Black “foreign nationals” to the country’s 2012 Marikana massacre; from the Nigerian government’s massacre of citizens protesting the brutality of the SARS police unit to the present-day enslavement of Africans in North Africa; from the Mediterranean crisis to China’s 1988–1989 Nanjing Anti-African Protests; from India’s recurrent attacks on its African students to Chinese corporations’ human rights abuses on the African continent; all the way through to Southern China’s denial of medical treatment to African migrants in the wake of the global Sinophobic COVID-19 backlash—we find that anti-Black violence in all its variances and valences consoles and coheres all nationalisms and nation states.

Black suffering sutures the wounds of the world. The moral arc of the universe does not bend toward justice. When we mark modernity’s time by Black lynchings, there is no “historical progress.” Instead, world-historic lynch-time continually returns us to the Nadir."

Tomorrow is May Day! If you want to read or listen to what May Day means to anarchists and rebels you can check out The Witch's Child. It's available as a PDF and as audio on resonanceaudiodistro.org

Going to get big into Eternalism this next week, so watch out unless you've read Alan Moore.

why aren't cops, judges, prosecutors, wardens terrified of reprisals? their reign of terror could stall at any moment, and people have very long memories
