'Common Sense', Hegemony, and Your Journey

16 Upvotes

Building off of Gramsci's notion of hegemony and the corresponding conception on 'common sense', I'm curious whether you all had moments in your life that shattered your preconceived notions about the operations of power in modern society, that forced you to reflect on the ways in which your consciousness, your taken-for-granted 'common sense', was impacted by being raised within the confines of a propagandistic system.

I just have a quick question. Are there any Anarchist groups in Kansas? I tried looking around and all I could find was AnCap bullshit.

im organizing my first protest. please help.

20 Upvotes

I was directed here from r/punk and r/activism so i hope yall can help. Im organizing my first protest with very little assistance which is going swimmingly except im 17 and have little to no idea what im doing. We're protesting the impending abortion ban but our town isn't really near any significant government buildings and im not gonna protest at the planned parenthood so there's really no good places to have it. We're having it on the square because it gets a lot of foot traffic and is right outside the court house. Is that a good place? Does the place matter? I could also really use any tips on how to get the word out. Honestly i could use any tips you've got.

affordable housing campaigns

14 Upvotes

i'm just wondering if other anarchists here are organizing for affordable housing in their cities, especially in the u.s.? are there successful campaigns already happening? are people organizing across political differences, and how were you able to successfully do that? what relationships did you have to build with city officials, or not? were there specific goals, like organizing against the income requirements?

Leftist Introductory or 101 Subs are Extremely Compromised

66 Upvotes

Leftist Introductory or 101 communities are Extremely Compromised, and it's a huge problem.

I made my entry into left spaces 7 or 8 years ago, and around that time r/askcommunism and r/communism101 were both helpful for me to get started and feel things out before I slowly drifted more and more into the libertarian-socialism corner. While not everybody I talked to in those early days behaved completely in good faith, bad actors were a minority of my interactions. Likewise, I enjoyed the content of several internet personalities at the time. I've outgrown most of the folk I used to be a fan of, but I believe most of them encouraged critical in thinking and gave me a nudge in the right direction before I moved on. Only two or three of the people I used to follow have had actual holy-shit-those-were-his-true-colors moments over the years.

I think it's pretty clear that the ecosystem of entry into left spaces is much less healthy than it was several years ago. Tankies and creepy Patriotic-Socialist types are extremely loud in those communities that are likely to be the first stops of a person figuring out they're a leftist. The debate-bro genre has greatly exacerbated the parasocial or culty dynamic for fledgling lefty kids. I know a big part of the problem is that moderation culture on reddit has devolved into extremely toxic cliques.

Is there anything proactive we can do? For my mental health I tend to just mute communities that look like shitshows, but there are some pretty nasty ramifications in the communities where I abide. It's a pretty common trajectory for folk to be communists for a couple of years before becoming anarchists, and I just can't see that pathway thriving if communist spaces continue to be extremely fucked.

For My American Comrades

23 Upvotes

Hello to all of my comrades. This is specifically for my American comrades that plan on doing some protesting in the no doubt frequent protests that are going on right now, and likely will continue for some time, for Roe V. Wade/abortion rights. The information could probably transfer pretty well to other countries, however, phone numbers, organizations, and laws will be different

The following is advice from a former legal observer from the National Lawyers Guild:

While you may be protesting lawfully, a protest may go sideways by the actions of others. Please be vigilant for your safety.

Police weren't the only ones data collecting. So, the points on masking your identity, those are important.


For my friends going protesting, a few notes from my legal observer days*:

MOST IMPORTANT

Become familiar with the National Lawyers Guild (nlg.org) They have a 1-800 number, write that on your arm. If you get detained, that's who I recommend you to call. I strongly recommend you NOT talk to police* without a lawyer being present. EVEN if you are "innocent" or you "did nothing wrong".
* Utah does have a "Stop and Identify" law in place, you DO have to identify yourself and your address, by law.

-- ## (Note from me Lyla: check your state law for "stop and identify" laws.)

▶ For those of you who use "biometric unlock" on your phone, please stop using that. Police don't have to ask your permission to open your phone using your face or thumb. Use a password.

▶ if you have visible tattoos, cover them. consider using hats and sunglasses.

▶ try to use public transportation as license plates IDs were being collected

▶ march, protest -- but please don't overdo it. I saw several collapse from fatigue and from heat exhaustion. On several occasions I walked almost 40k steps in a day ( just about 20 miles)

▶ please spend time reviewing this site below
