@solidarea what do you think about radical childcare?

i think if we are serious about building lasting movements we can't ignore it's importance. theres been recent influx of rad coloring/childrens books and that's great but we need to integrate those materials into comprehensive practices for radicalizing youth. kids internalize capitalistic values/behaviors faster than you might expect and if we don't interrupt it early and effectively then we're only creating more organizing and political education work down the line.

@solidarea all sounds legit to me. I remember being a kid in the 90’s and getting into huge fights with my lefty father because I wanted the right brands displayed on my clothes and he was trying to figure out if there were any sneakers still made in the US.

@jash

word. very relatable. my Marxist dad also didn't understand my pre-teen obsession with owning all the correctly logo'd gear.

even toddlers get caught up in "that's mine," "they're ugly," "i need this now," etc.

@solidarea yeah. I have a toddler. They a lil learning machines, and the world is full of awful lessons.

@jash

but im sure you are full of wonderful lessons that tip the balance :blobcheer:
