Serious recommendation: if you like solarpunk, look into AfroFuturism. It's been around -way- longer, and tbh, solarpunk was probably inspired by it. The aesthetics and ideals often overlap, and there's way more lore and fiction to read! Also, you'll be giving a platform to people that have great ideas and need the attention.

"Capitalism made your cell phone" is not as good an argument in favour of Capitalism as you think
Money; capitalism Show more
If we took all the finances in the world and split it evenly between everyone, we would all have 70.65K–155.8K USD (depending upon who you trust to estimate how much money there is in the world). Also, since nobody would have substantially more than the rest of us, they wouldn’t be charging you rent or mortgages. Seems like a lot of money to be upset if it was “all” you had.
Someone who thinks they're cis might be trans. I thought I was cis once. There aren't many (perhaps no) trans people who didn't think they weren't cis at one point.
This is part of why I think giving accurate information on trans issues is so important, and why engaging cis people on it is so vital.
You don't have to be responsible for this engagement. But don't shit on people who *are* doing it.
Alright, here it is: I am going to be making a zine every month this year out of newly public domain materials from 1923. I just launched a Kickstarter for subscriptions, which are capped at 100! Please back and share :) https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/887675031/1923-a-monthly-zine-of-public-domain-treasures

You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting -
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.
-Mary Oliver, Wild Geese
