Things You Might Have Missed

Read this! It covers so many things that have been on my mind lately.  It is, as the person who posted it says, long and academic.  But it is worth the time.  In short, it explains how middle and upper class women moved into the non-profit savior industry and how their liberation came at the expense of other women. It shows how that connects to support for the state.  It shows so much.  Really important stuff.

This report on migrants journeys through Mexico is heartbreaking.  It is also long, but at least read the sidebar/boxes with the migrant stories.  Sickening.

I thought this piece on atheism and anarchism was really interesting.  I commented at the bottom and would love your thoughts on my thoughts.

Really liked this post on anarchism and disability.  I’ve posted about this issue before and she includes thoughts on how to handle disability in our communities without a state.

Looks like the shit is hitting the fan in Argentina.

This video of British rappers is worth a watch.  They are talking about whether rap is challenging power or in service to it.

Liked this post about how people use “free speech” as though they are exempted from criticism.

And finally, my friend Lacy posted some stuff about the really free market we had. Much fun.
