Interview on the Black Ocean Blog

Dana Guth did an interview w/me about the idea in and process behind my new book Someone’s Utopia, which also got its first review in Fanzine by Joseph Houlihan.

But, also, let’s face it, there are more important things to read right now in order to digest what the 2018 elections meant and didn’t mean and whether they were just a speed bump for creeping fascism or whether one can hope against hope this is turning point and then entertain the thought that it might be a turn towards realizing a visionary leftist politics and what to do either way (something). So here’s some more important things to read than my interview:

“Trump Was Repudiated” by Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor.

“Hidden in Plain Sight: A Note on Legitimation Crises and the Racial Order” by Michael C. Dawson.

& look at what these amazing people did.

And a friend sent me this waiting at a bus station in Richmond.

And just read whatever helps yr values flower into rad leftist action or replenishes you for action.

Ok now here’s the interview.
