Self-Isolate, Self-Educate! Political Education in the Pandemic

Ultimately, without a programme of political education, we have no self defence against the ideological hegemony of state, capital and patriarchy – their worldviews appear almost spontaneously as our own.
We, as already politicised radicals and revolutionaries, need to provide the tools for genuinely critical worldviews to emerge from the fragments of a liberal common sense shattered and superseded by the pandemic’s realities. We need to develop within ourselves and each other the necessary courage in our convictions and capacities for autonomous action, and critical understandings of the current system, to develop our own organised response, and this necessarily emerges from genuinely revolutionary worldviews aimed squarely beyond the present state of things.
