A warning about bad faith arguments and propaganda

I wrote a piece in October 2020 about live streaming. The article was written with the idea in mind that the argument against live streaming was genuine. That the people arguing were doing so in good faith. Perhaps some of them are. After all, they have every reason to be afraid. People in activism are […]

Quick Note on Metaphors

As a precursor to the lengthy arguments about anti-journalism and pseudo-anarchists attempting to censor activism, I want to briefly discuss these two specific ‘ metaphors ‘ that have been floating around the Twitter-sphere. These mantras are popular phrases used in an attempt to shut down arguments when journalists want to film any activist events. * […]

About the site…

Some significant changes are coming. I will no longer be writing alone or managing the site alone. It is going to become a joint venture.

“I tried to tell you…”

Talked to a friend the other day. The extent of the conversation was along the lines that “we tried to tell all of you but you thought we were crazy”. And as I read the drafts from 4-5 years ago, the ones I never published, I think about how I wasn’t loud enough. How I […]

On Protest (2)

[Note: I started this draft several years ago. Similar to On Protest (1), which was published years after writing, the context has not changed. Some details have been filled in with current events or my own knowledge growing.]   The word is officially revealed that Dear Leader has never been a decent human being. The […]

Looking Across the Ocean

My country is dying. And we are struggling against the rise of fascism in the process. I knew this day would come. When I was preparing to leave the US, in my gut, I knew it would come. No matter where in the world I ended up, I knew that at some point I would […]
