    Ep 269 - The Concept Privilege: Barrier or Bridge for Social Justice?

    Ep 269 - The Concept Privilege: Barrier or Bridge for Social Justice?

    Episode  269 of RevolutionZ considers the concept and practice of privilege as in, for example, white privilege, male privilege, and class privilege. Is to uncover, call out, and renounce privilege, a powerful tool for overcoming racism, sexism, and classism, or does this approach instead have unintended consequences that interfere with its own aims? In offering a controversial exploration of a widespread activist approach am I defending my own white, male, class privilege? Or am I trying to contribute to anti-racist, feminist, and economic justice? You decide. And by all means, then let me know your assessment.

    Ep 268 Election 2024 Engage or Not, Vote or Not...

    Episode 268 of RevolutionZ addresses the upcoming U.S presidential election. Will there even  be one? If there is, who will be candidates? Should a revolutionary, a radical, a progressive, or a typical citizen vote, get out the vote, watch Netflix, block a bridge, hibernate? All the above? None of the above? Is there even a way to sensibly think about such choices? Hate fascist Trump? Hate Genocide Joe? Okay, then what?

    Ep 267 Time Has Come Today - Become Revolutionary

    Ep 267 Time Has Come Today - Become Revolutionary

    Episode 267 of RevolutionZ is, what? Part primal scream. Part an argument for going all in. The title is from The Chambers Brothers. The sentiment is channelled, I hope, from tomorrow to today. The words are equal parts rage, hope, and plain truth.
