Arriving from the demonstration in Graz, hopefully people vote against the nazis on sunday.

An additional good morning wish for everyone facing freezing temperatures. I wish you warmth and safety, and the support to get those things. ✨

Il Buscopan e il caffè insieme non vanno bene. Sapevatelo.

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

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.
