The only thing beautiful is uselessness

it might give a framework under which to open up the tent. All the dichotomies rigid ideologies and enemy lists just foment disunity.

it's interesting how the philosophical underpinning of a field can influence public perception. like economists seem like idiots because they're positivist so they make bold pronouncements that are completely wrong some time, while theorists seem like they're constantly evading attributing a fixed meaning to anything they write because they're poststructuralist or whatever

nagl "thread"ing yr own post lagoon

ok but like, are you gonna make a FOR HETEROGLOSSIA banner?

like, i've been trying to get people to re-read their Huey Newton for 10 years cause I thought their (at least on paper) confrontation of racism *and* capitalism *and* hetereo/sexism was just the kind of umbrella thinking that could be useful to bring people onto the same page but

who's gonna listen to hoos

i kinda hate how some ppl try to roll anti-capitalism into any discussion of anti-racism/feminism/etc. like obvs things ~interact~ and are not completely independent but your successor socialist utopia is still gonna be racist af if it just assumes that once we pull out the jenga piece of the profit motive all other oppressions will just fade away

flopson, Friday, 27 February 2015 20:10 (four years ago) link

the good thing about anti-capitalism is that [almost] everyone has a personal stake in it as a system. for the vast majority of ppl any given identity politics is not to have a personal stake for them, at best they can be allies.

Mordy, Friday, 27 February 2015 20:12 (four years ago) link

is not going* to have

Mordy, Friday, 27 February 2015 20:12 (four years ago) link

BIG HOOS aka the steendriver, Friday, 27 February 2015 20:14 (four years ago) link

well i'm certainly not pro white ppl! fuck those guys imo.

Mordy, Friday, 27 February 2015 20:15 (four years ago) link

but the pt is that even among WHITEZ, the vast majority do not benefit from capitalism

Mordy, Friday, 27 February 2015 20:15 (four years ago) link

it's funny how you start having a discussion about whatever and before you know you're having theoretical debates about the priority of capitalism. it's not so much that anyone needs but it's already there and at work.

ryan, Friday, 27 February 2015 20:16 (four years ago) link

ppl are most smug about how capitalism is bad out of all the leftist twitter topics, like they have discovered a most beautiful secret, the thing they neglect to mention is that other things are bad too

lag∞n, Friday, 27 February 2015 20:16 (four years ago) link

xps ha left out the key word, "it's not that anyone needs theory..."

this is exactly why black liberation politics and particularly the anticapitalism of the panthers & APOC groups is so essential to any useful analysis i think

BIG HOOS aka the steendriver, Friday, 27 February 2015 20:16 (four years ago) link

imo the left will never obtain self knowledge until it faces the fact that socialism is the most #actually form of government ever theorized
