HIVE MIND

HIVE MIND

one hundred days of insanity bombast and bigotry…more than one hundred days of resistance–reaching deeper and summoning the best of the human spirit…the quasi-comic spectacle of proto-fascist corporate incompetence would be amusing if the stakes weren’t so deathly high…war games in the middle east–saber rattling of atomic dimensions in east asia…tens of thousands converge for climate justice–led by front line communities and fiercely styled by a small legion of vibrant artists crafting flags banners and parachutes…may day will be another day without an immigrant–erecting a proud wall of resistance to the threatening tide of anti-immigrant xenophobia….organizing in the age of trump is an exercise in navigating contradictions…every day there is an urgent meeting or action–some new outrage…the fire of the moment is intense and palpable…but this is a marathon not a sprint–and we must care for ourselves, for our communities, and for those we love if we are to remain sane amidst this maelstrom…we are evolving a hive mind of resistance–a deeply rooted think tank of cosmic proportions…building power to transform by any means necessary–and through all available avenues…our tweets are public and our texts are encrypted…cops can raid our homes and find only a rough outline of the world we want to build–socialism, communism, anarchism…call it what you will–but the truth wears many masks and emerges through subterranean tunnels aspiring to make borders obsolete…we worship the sun–we see angels dance in the moonlight–and our hive mind drives deep building a capacity for social transformation of godlike dimensions
