i think a lot of us are feeling a bit overwhelmed by all the chaos and confusion building up in our Occupy motions. Faced with such, i tend to fall back into critically appraising myself and ideas i find myself “taking for granted”. Here’s a short list of approaches which may aid in thinking through things, generally.
Some interesting links for critical self-reflection:
http://peopleofcolororganize.com (a generally excellent-looking site!)
http://unsettlingamerica.wordpress.com (has some excelling articles challenging Occupiers to think through our assumptions; see especially Zainab Amadahy’s “Why indigenous and racialized struggles will always be appendixed by the left”
