Rejected debris of hope and happiness by I. Z. Nessuno-Raskolnikov  One is disturbed to see the tent cities spreading with each passing year. "It's just all over, every underpass, even close by where we work – that's been a long-term popular place – but never like this, this shit is just fucking ridiculous."  Just a few blocks away from the luxurious mansions where families spend their weekends, people are suffering; Murder, human trafficking and poverty. Close to the wealthy…

The Pallet House by I. Z. Nessuno-Raskolnikov  We all love green stuff; right? Another story about stuff; Human stuff. I need more space for my stuff; space for more relics and antiques; space for stuff to member: "Ohh.. I member dat stuff!"; Memorabilia and shrines; decadent western lifestyles. I want less space; I have less stuff; got rid of stuff. I am a fugee; All I need is a clever, tiny space to live happily ever after. A little wooden shed outside the ghetto; solar powered stuff. Ohh..…

Your invitation is here. The above invitation is from me, as the founder and CEO (i.e. nobody in particular) Imagine it coming from someone with a profile like Noam Chomsky or Danny Glover (as Global Ambassador), who has the potential to unite the activist movement behind a single initiative that can actually bring about real change. This project is now at a stage where we need to reach out more broadly and I was delighted to come across IOPS and have added it as a new project entitled: People-first…

L'économie-politique actuelle se caractérise, entre autres, par : - un dilemme inévitable dû au degré de complexité de nos sociétés : toute représentation intellectuelle est totalitaire et univoque. Or, l'expérience vient immanquablement contrarier, par l’enquête pragmatiste, cette interprétation en proposant des données nouvelles. C'est la raison de l'effondrement de tous les systèmes de mise…

  Hiya, I relatively recently submitted this to an essay writing contest on global warming, and thought I'd share my entry here. It's short, and I tried to incorporate a bunch of ideas and tendencies I align with, like libertarian municpalism, Peak Oil, animal liberation, etc.Mainstream discourse over global warming, and climate change more broadly, has largely remained on the surface, doing little but set back minimally the pace of its threats to everyone’s well-being and the continuation…

As anyone can see, IOPS is not doing well. Although new members keep coming in, the activity level here is close to absolute zero. So a natural question is, Why bother? Why not simply admit that IOPS is a failure and give up?  The essence of my argument for not giving up is that “something like IOPS” is needed, and that there is currently no alternative. I do not feel a particular loyalty to IOPS as an organization, and if I see a better alternative I’ll be happy to jump ship,…
