"Anarchism aims to strip labor of its deadening, dulling aspect, of its gloom and compulsion. It aims to make work an instrument of joy, of strength, of color, of real harmony, so that the poorest sort of a man should find in work both recreation and hope." [ Emma Goldman]

Capitalism's impoverishment of the individual's spirit is hardly surprising. As Godwin argued, "[t]he spirit of oppression, the spirit of servility, and the spirit of fraud, these are the immediate growth of the established administration of property. They are alike hostile to intellectual and moral improvement."In other words, any system based in wage labour or hierarchical relationships in the workplace will result in a deadening of the individual and the creation of a "servile" character.

"Their obedience training at work carries over into the families they start, thus reproducing the system in more ways than one, and into politics, culture and everything else. Once you drain the vitality from people at work, they'll likely submit to hierarchy and expertise in everything. They're used to it." [The Abolition of Work]"

"the man whose life is spent in performing a few simple operations, of which the effects too are, perhaps, always the same, or nearly the same, has no occasion to extend his understanding... and generally becomes as stupid and ignorant as it is possible for a human creature to be... But in every improved and civilised society this is the state into which the labouring poor, that is the great body of the people, must necessarily fall, unless government takes pains to prevent it." [Adam Smith]

"So instead of aiming just to produce because the economy will collapse if we did not, anarchists want to ensure that we produce what is useful in a manner which liberates the individual and empowers them in all aspects of their lives." [cited by J.S. Mill in On Liberty, chapter III]"

"For all anarchists, a "voluntary association that will organise labour, and be the manufacturer and distributor of necessary commodities... is to make what is useful. The individual is to make what is beautiful." [Oscar Wilde, The Soul of Man Under Socialism, page 25] Or, to bring this ideal up to day, as Chomsky put it, "[t]he task for a modern industrial society is to ... (Read more at link)

Simple and standards based to use the existing early #indymedia process and have a dual approach of security/openeses so you can come into the reboot by the direction you like. If we don't have this approach we end up with late indymedia process only and ripping noises and no project at all. Why waste a year to get to this outcome is my thought.

The images show the radical trust based decentralisation and standards based approach. it's based on #KISS and trust building throughout.

The are a problem as they are reducing the value of trust. All human interactions are based on this value if you reduces it you reduce our shared humanity.

The don't know they are a problem. Have a conversion with a today about this.

This conversation is important as its not historical. Its a present and future issue so looking back is directly dealing with today and helping to mediate tomorrow.

This message is a spade.

On the reboot over this winter I planted a seed in the ground, the Berlin community watered it, waiting for it to sprout, then needs nurturing past the seedling stage to a healthy plant, the first step to healthy forist.

If you are interested in a flourishing alt-media garden get involved in plant care, till the world you would like to see, water your dreams.

I have lots of historical chat on about how usefull failbook is for campaigning and how its all harmless cat mems thus its not a political project. Go back pre snowdon and this is more than a 90% view. Think if i look back i can find most of my friends saying similar things not pointing fingers here as this was normal.

If we foget we repeat, if we scapgoat we are no better than the trolls.

is a spade

You can use a search engine openworlds.info that will remove the "personalisation/manipulation" of the and add alternative views to your search. Ps. We need programers and sys admins for the project to make these tools work better.
