We had a lot of trouble with Western mental health workers who came here immediately after the genocide and we had to ask some of them to leave.
They came and their practice did not involve being outside in the sun where you begin to feel better. There was no music or drumming to get your blood flowing again. There was no sense that everyone had taken the day off so that the entire community could come together to try to lift you up and bring you back to joy. There was no acknowledgement of the depression as something invasive and external that could actually be cast out again.
Instead they would take people one at a time into these dingy little rooms and have them sit around for an hour or so and talk about bad things that had happened to them. We had to ask them to leave."
don’t forget, he was a horrible racist and blood-thirsty war criminal directly responsible for the death of millions of people.
reminder again that chruchill is a piece of shit who was right about literally nothing and the fact that he hated communists only makes him more of an asshole.
He was right about Hitler being bad… but he thought Hitler was bad because he wanted to do exactly what is described in this quote to other European nation-states.
-Peter Gelderloos, Why Nonviolence Protects the State- Nonviolence is Racist (via fuckyeahradicalquotes)
REBLOGGING FOREVER! USING VIOLENCE (OR TALKING ABOUT IT AS AN OPTION) DOES NOT MAKE YOU OPPRESSIVE!
Once again a white American dude tries to act like he knows something of the world, and once again gets it completely wrong.
Nonviolence doesn’t entail privilege, nonviolence simply entails an audience. Read up on Arundhati Roy and other non-Western activists of color — us folks who actually KNOW and have had to survive this genocidal shit.
And while an audience can be a luxury, that is not a conversation that pasty Westerners like Peter Gelderloos get to dictate or even interject in. Yall really going to let some cracker ass European settler get away with branding Indians who overthrew British tyranny and African-Americans imprisoned and assassinated by white supremacy as ‘privileged people’?
LOL manarchists and their desperation for sublimating puerile white boy rage into ‘activism’ that conveniently erases the hell out of struggles they can’t even imagine.
