Climate chaos and mass extinction got you down? Tired of social oppression and state terrorism? Well, to quote the famous Indian writer/activist Arundhati Roy, “Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.” For millennia, people have created societies of their own choosing – from pirate communes, quilombos, and the Civil War era Free State of Jones to today’s eco-municipalities, temporary autonomous zones (think Oaxaca, Standing Rock, or Rojava) and longtime anarchist communities like Christiania in Denmark. If the proverbial crap hits the fan, could Madison transform itself into a self-sufficient intentional cooperative safespace or would we become just another Mad Max episode in humanity’s social devolution.
Future sessions held alternate Mondays: 11/25 & 12/5.
