the kids | This is Forever’ – this is for the future. What we will in the present cracks open the actually-existing to unleash potentials for the yet-to-come. What we affirm now will return to us, accumulating a set of powers and virtues into a body capable of refusing command and of claiming its own irreversible destiny.

This is the attempt to theorize from these positions toward new ways of life, and new ways of organizing society.

Marcus Hammerschmitt | Grotesque but true, capitalism at the start of the 21st century set out to realize the utopia of a life without work - and cannot face this fact - because of its own inner pressures. Reducing working hours is crucial for lowering unemployment. Creating a social net, e.g. universal health care, is a precondition for sharing work. more... 0 Comments

Worker Freedom | Requests have been routinely made and ignored for the purchase of a stepladder. It is vital for our safety that we have a stepladder available to use for such tasks as changing light bulbs, reaching boxes on high shelves, and cleaning ceiling tiles. Currently, we are forced to balance ourselves on unstable cafe tables to accomplish tasks in hard to reach places. Our store is not ergonomically designed and until it is, the purchase of a stepladder would be a simple solution to a number of safety concerns. more... 2 Comments
