A treasure fell in my lap from the apple tree. It is a podcast by Jeff Wright about the Trojan war, starting with the Wedding of Peleus and the Original Snub in which Our Lady of Elections and Fender benders tossed the Apple of Discord right up to the fall of Troy.
I was only going to listen to the first couple of episodes about Eris up to the Judgement of Paris and ended up embroiled in the Trojan war because of the riveting storytelling.
Anyway, check it out if you are into this sort of thing…
On Activism is a new publication from the elusive Boomtime Cabal: Exploring concepts such as what activism hopes to achieve and the flow of power, action over paralysis in a society that bombards information, and building systems of lasting change.
It details how to get involved in change you want to see, even if what you do is small.
It highlights the importance of communication and incremental change over glory chasing or ego of Causes.
It warns of the perils of the lack of self criticism and introspection on a personal level and at a group level and delves into the role of Discordianism and the need to poke fun at ideas we hold dear and those of the causes we band to.
It expands into the changing role of technology in activism and ramifications of how we communicate through new mediums, to the mechanics and interplay of protests and organisations (and the perils to watch for).
