Scott is a long time organizer and activist and is best known as a co-founder of the Common Ground Relief Effort in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrine. Common Ground is the subject of his seminal book, “Black Flags & Windmills." His upcoming book “Setting Sights” is available for pre-order now on PM Press.
In this episode we have a critical and informative discussion with Scott Crow about new ways of thinking beyond resistance towards a politics of possibilities. We discuss some of the pitfalls of “activism” and the toxic subculture that can tend to exist within in it. Scott explains about how the vocabulary we use can alienate us from our goals and the world we want to build. We talk some shit about Alex Jones, right wing media and the dangers of it as well.
