"Some time ago I heard a well-known economist reply, when asked about solidarity economy, that while it is necessary for there to exist as much solidarity as possible, it mustn’t interfere with the structures and processes of the economy, for fear of affecting the basic equilibria.

Instance Block Recommendation: (Transphobia/Aphobia) literally defines itself as an "anti-mogai exclusionist lgbt instance."

Budding city planners will have access to 90+ building blocks to arrange and combine and to create unique neighborhoods and discover the implications of their designs. The game will embark on a story of ecology and understanding as additional resources are always needed to unlock new blocks, configurations, and combinations to create more prosperous neighborhoods. Throughout the design process, players will need to avoid the decay of their city blocks by making sure each unit doesn’t run out of resources and become a strain on the complimentary units around them."

"While bringing about expropriation, society cannot continue to organize itself on the principle of parliamentary representation. A society founded on serfdom is in keeping with absolute monarchy; a society based on the wage system and the exploitation of the masses by the capitalists finds its political expression in parliamentarianism. But a free society, regaining possession of the common inheritance, must seek, in free groups and free federations of groups, a new organization..."

A Very Good Review Dunking on Asad Haider's Terrible Book

Haider's "proposed dichotomy between a sectarian and divisive identity politics (by this point virtually synonymous with Blackness) and an expansive 'insurgent universality' merely displaces the terms of the “race versus class” debate while repeating a tired, class-reductionist argument in veiled form."

some of y'all really dont know what intersectionality means 

"I argue that Black women are sometimes excluded from feminist theory and antiracist policy discourse because both are predicated on a discrete set of experiences that often does not accurately reflect the interaction of race and gender...
