Thriving in Dystopia

Ep8: Why movement matters, and who is allowed to move #abolishICE #herosjourney #originstory

June 29, 2020

In the spirit of the topic of the show for today, Dave and Bob meander on various dystopias, stories, psychology, and news events relating to movement.  Global movement has been profoundly affected during the pandemic.  Yet, taking a page from Joyful Militancy, the brothers attempt to weave together crucial ideas of movement: who gets to move? If movement leads to change, how can we harness movement?  And then how can movement lead to freedom especially for those that are least free?

Thanks to the artists: HOME, Drake Stafford, Cullah, and the enigmatic Joe Schine.

2) Quote by Elysium director Neill Blomkamp is actually, “this movie is not good enough.”
