Im Zuge der allgemeinen Krisenstimmung scheint der Enthusiasmus der IOPS-Community auch vom verbreiteten Katzenjammer erfasst zu sein. Alles ist Mist. Keiner macht was. Ich verstehe das nicht. Hier scheint es eine "Organisation" jenseits von Kaderparteien und lokalen Nachbarschaftsinitiativen zu geben, die Wert auf Klarheit und Aufrichtigkeit legt und sich dennoch nicht scheut, die dicken Bretter anzubohren.

No commodities or profundity chasing here. This is primal use value all  up in ya face. And he's an old fart as well, who's  been doing it for years. Eyebrows and recalcitrant stiff middle fingers all over the place. A fuck you to the man. Who says you have to grow up! Revolutionary…

"In my experience you definitely get knee-jerk responses to issues relating to things like Venezuela where the anarchist types tend to refuse to support that particular struggle on the grounds that it is top-down or something.
