The Quest for the Offline Left: The Social Solidarity Economy with Marcus Peters

Transcript

No transcript...

In Episode 29, we sit down with Marcus Peters, an activist and organizer based in Montreal, to discuss the social solidarity economy. We talk about what a co-op is, why they're important for the Left, and how they can give workers control over their work. We also discuss a new union Marcus has been organizing in the forestry sector. Finally, we get into the problem of wreckers — and how to organize effectively in spite of them.

Part of the series The Quest for the Offline Left.

Fucking Cancelled
Fucking Cancelled
Fucking Cancelled is a podcast with three aims. First, we analyze and critique a phenomenon on the left that we call the nexus: a synthesis of identitarianism, social media, and cancel culture. Second, we offer emotional, spiritual, and ethical insights into the process of rejecting and exiting the nexus. Third, we move toward a different vision for the left grounded in solidarity, freedom, and responsibility. We are leftists who have spent many years inside the nexus. We have been too afraid to critique it and we have suffered the consequences of critiquing it. We know all too well the destructive impact the nexus has on our communities, our movements, our spiritual, emotional, and mental health, and our capacity to be responsible, ethical actors. We are also recovering addicts who live our lives by a set of spiritual and ethical principles which are starkly at odds with the rules of the nexus. We offer these principles as a guiding light toward a different left. Fucking Cancelled is a podcast for anyone who feels stifled or trapped by the authoritarian, punishing culture that dominates the left. It’s a podcast for anyone who is too afraid to say what they really think. It’s a podcast for people who have been cancelled, who are afraid of getting cancelled, or who have taken part in the cancellation of others and wondered if it was right. Fucking Cancelled is a podcast for leftists who dream of a left grounded in solidarity, freedom, and responsibility, rather than coercion, authoritarianism, and punishment.
