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superseded by the pandemic’s realities.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.
