Questions I regularly ask myself when I'm outraged about injustice:
1. What resources exist so I can better educate myself?
2. Who's already doing work around this injustice?
3. Do I have the capacity to offer concrete support & help to them?
4. How can I be constructive?

Degrowth: A Call for Radical Abundance — Jason Hickel
It doesn’t have to be this way. We can call a halt to the madness – throw a wrench in the juggernaut. By de-enclosing social goods and restoring the commons, we can ensure that people are able to access the things that they need to live a good life without having to generate piles of income in order to do so, and without feeding the never-ending growth machine. “Private riches” may shrink, as Lauderdale pointed out, but public wealth will increase.

In this sense, degrowth is the very opposite of austerity. While austerity calls for scarcity in order to generate growth, degrowth calls for abundance in order to render growth unnecessary.

Degrowth, at its core, is a demand for radical abundance.

Benefits of Weight Training: 3 Reasons Why You Should Lift Weights
Just had a great talk about the value of sports vs. reading in life. Have you learned more from pushing yourself physically or mentally?

Many of you sent in great answers, but I particularly liked this one from Tom…

Not sure which — there's tremendous value in each. Mental teaches you about others, physical teaches you about yourself.

Tom explained what I hadn't quite been able to put my finger on: there is an incredible amount to be learned from both reading and playing sports, but you'll learn more about yourself when you push yourself physically. [evidently Shopclass as soulcraft makes a similar argument - when you must work with material that will not give]

how to do nothing – Jenny Odell – Medium
This type of embarrassing discovery, in which something you thought was one thing is actually two things, and each of those two things is actually ten things, seems not only naturally cumulative but also a simple function of the duration and quality of one’s attention. With effort, we can become attuned to things, able to pick up and then hopefully differentiate finer and finer frequencies each time.

Art Districts | Benjamen Walker's Theory of Everything
Empty buildings, run down neighborhoods and cheap rents.
This is the bait you need to attract artists, speculators and urban revitalizers. But in order to attract pioneers you also need illusion and myth. We tour the art districts of New Orleans, Los Angeles and Detroit with writer Peter Moscowitz, activist Maga Miranda, and artist Maya Stovall.
