"[T]he call for a #CitizensAssembly cleverly sidesteps any internal movement bickering... It says: we know what the problem is and we want a more legitimate, more democratic way of solving it."

Look, if hopepunk isn't your thing, I get it. But you don't get to downplay its revolutionary nature just because you are a pessimist.

@Wewereseeds @Efi one place to start is the book Afrofuturism by Ytasha L Womack.

There's also a whole lot of fiction. Check out people/Magazines like:
Fiyah Lit
New World, Old Ways
Phenderson Djeli Clark
Nnedi Okorafor
K. Tempest Bradford
Sofia Samatar
Nk Jemisin
Alexis Pauline Gumbs
Rivers Solomon
Nalo Hopkinson

Not all of these are strictly afrofuturist, but many of them are or they build on afrofuturist foundations

Cringe is part of the general slipping of right wing terminology into everyone else’s vocabulary and as a communications major I am sick and tired of people acting like it’s just a phrase that doesn’t have its basis in mocking other people. Full stop, think about the context of how you want to use it and ask yourself: would bad work here? Or awkward? Or uncomfortable? It’s one thing to cringe at something. But something being cringy is usually shorthand for a different dog whistle.

a green new deal needs to include a shorter work week as most our energy consumption comes from work/traveling to work

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.
