Personal pronouns purposefully confused.
What do you mean when you say you want to change the world?
(What world-changing project are you working on and why?)
What do you mean by ‘social change’, ‘social purpose’, ‘social action’?
(what do these buzz-words mean? Do they help to make change (using the given project definition above) possible, are they useful? If so, how, why?)
How do we check that we’re changing the world in the way we intended?
Or (maybe more realistically) how do we know how we are changing the world?
Everyone changes the world. The world changes everyone.
There’s a whole load of intersecting cultural and social bullshit that makes different capacities for world changing deeply problematic. That makes me angry (if I have enough energy).
I am queer, anarchist, feminist. I couldn’t begin to answer those questions without those identities. They are the reason for asking, and will be language of answering.
Complexity. I keep saying that I have so much to say about this. It is still true. It is getting clearer. Maybe my next post will make a start. I just know it will take a while so I’m putting it off. Terrible plan.
