Trying to fish for an analogy to help describe the process of discussing counter-capitalist theories and templates without signing up to them. Really struck by recent conversations with Rónán Burtenshaw and Miles Link and the flagging of works by Seth Ackerman and David Schweickart - both writers new to me - and also the idea that talking about counter-capitalist worlds and transitions to these worlds is not the same as signing up dogmatically to ten-point plans of tactics and strategy. That discussing the works of people like Ackerman and Schweickart is not about ossifying the analysis, it’s about where you take it. It’s not about signing up on a dotted line. I mean, you don’t have to agree with the Sound of Music to enjoy where this ends up.
