How many machines remain unused solely because they do not return an immediate profit to the capitalist! … How many discoveries, how many applications of science remain a dead letter solely because they don’t bring the capitalist enough!
Carlo Cafiero, “Anarchy and Communism”, pp. 179–86, The Raven, No. 6, p. 182 (via probablyasocialecologist)

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE DON’T SCROLL PAST THIS.
Scarleteen is a vital queer and trans positive sexual health resource. Their staff do an amazing job of creating really comprehensive and helpful articles on literally every sexual topic you can imagine. They also provide live chats, advice columns, moderated discussion forums, and SMS-based peer support. This site has helped me on countless occasions, and I refer at-risk queer and trans kids to this site every single day.
Scarleteen is invaluable.
And Scarleteen needs your help.
During their annual donation drive this year, the site was only able to raise $1,500. Only fifty people out of Scarleteen’s 350,000 unique monthly visitors contributed to the fundraising drive.
This means that unless Scarleteen sees a stable, sustained, 50% increase in donations, the site will essentially be forced to go dark on May 1. No more new content, no more advice columns, no more forums, no more live chat, no more SMS support. 
This is devastating.
If Scarleteen goes dark, millions of young people, vulnerable queer and trans teens among them, will lose access to essential, fundamental sexual health resources. We cannot let this happen.
Please, please, please donate to Scarleteen. Consider making a recurring monthly contribution if you feel that this is within your means. Even $5 or $10 a month will go a long way to helping this very, very deserving organization.
And whether or not you’re able to donate at this time, please signal boost this and spread the word. Scarleteen does incredible, very necessary work, and they need our help.

The more democratic a group or campaign is, the more effective it is, as all people involved can have an input and feel a part of the project.
Although often basic, this information is essential for the smooth-running of an organisation and sticking to these simple guidelines can make the difference between a long lasting successful group and a failure.
Below find tips on many aspects of organising, from facilitating meetings and financing your group, to structure and making decisions.
How to start a group
Basic principles of revolutionary organisation
Coming up with a strategy and set of principles
Decision making and organisational form
Financing a group
Handling difficult behaviour in meetings
How to organise and facilitate meetings effectively
Successful delegation guide
Taking meeting minutes guide
Building a solidarity network guide
Federations and networks guide

I didn’t read all of these so I don’t know how useful they all are, but there’s a shortage of good practical documents like these. Maybe they’ll help someone.

non-binary genders date back to ancient egypt if not earlier and yet people still act like they’re some kind of “tumblr trend” like what else from 2000 bc are you not gonna believe in? roads? beer? locks?

the pyramids are a myth perpetuated by social justice bloggers

…anarchists are not Bakuninists (or Proudhonists or Kropotkinites or any other person-ist). We recognise other anarchists as what they are, human beings who said lots of important and useful things but, like any other human being, they make mistakes and often do not live up to all of their ideas. For anarchists, it is a question of extracting the useful parts from their works and rejecting the useless.

AND FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER IN CINEMA HISTORY AN AMERICAN MADE MOVIE SWAPS FANATICAL PATRIOTISM FOR BASIC HUMAN DECENCY EVEN THOUGH THE MOVIE ITSELF IS CALLED CAPTAIN AMERICA AND IT DOESN’T GET ANY MORE PATRIOTIC THAN THAT BUT MARVEL CHOSE A DIFFERENT PATH AND I’M THANKFUL FOR THAT pardon my capslock

I think that’s what’s so great about Steve. That he is what we as a country can only aspire to be. Kind of like how Superman inspires the human race, Captain America inspires his country to be better.

 (via hanabi)

See, I don’t really even think of him as a MURRICA sort of thing really. I mean yes his superhero name and his outfit and shield are a little much for me, but I’ve always liked him as a character despite the fact that as an anarchist I really don’t like things that scream MURRICA. This is because the values he exemplifies- justice, standing up for the oppressed/the underdog, fighting fascism, freedom, equality, etc.- are actually very true to my own values. It’s just that I think America is always trying to push this image of itself on everyone that says these are the things America values and what it is. Of course, not one of these things is actually happening in America at all and it never really was. Steve represents, to me anyway, what it would be like if America actually followed the ideals it pretends to believe in: Truly and genuinely good, willing to do whatever it takes to bring about freedom, justice, and equality. Unfortunately, America is very corrupt. Our government is becoming more and more transparent about it and the big corporations are becoming more and more obvious about their role in politics. So as long as America is a country where there is anyone with power over anyone else and where there is such a divide between people economically, basically as long as America is a capitalist country (or as long as it has a government and corporations), it will never be this way. I like that Marvel doesn’t actually make Steve super patriotic or anything either. The uniform and the name are just constructs that were kind of forced upon him anyway. Rather than taking him in the MURRICA direction, they made his character more about fighting things that are dangerous and bad. I mean (Spoiler alert!) in The Winter Soldier he has literally all of SHEILD trying to kill him. A government agency. Does that sound like something a person who’s only about patriotism would have going on?
