I think the best question to test whether someone's a bad person is "If you saw someone shoplifting groceries, would you tell management/the cops?"
I feel like even the most brainwashed person, as long as they're still fundamentally compassionate, would say no. Or at least would ask follow-up questions. They'd in some way recognize that if you had to choose between starving or disrespecting social conventions of property, it's right for you to steal
Anyone who gives an unconditional yes is a monster
If I gave into relying on and believing in government to support my individual survival, then I would not be inclined to build a community.
I would accept the isolation of capitalism. I would not share my gifts with friends in exchange for collective survival.
For this, I can be glad I was rejected by the system.

with definitive tastes of "Soylent Green" as well as bringing the usual excellence of the director, lead cast member and Oakland resident Boots Riley...
...that's the movie "Sorry to Bother You",
one of the best 2018.
Also the title of the album Boots Riley's band The Coup made while Boots was participating in #OccupyOakland.
That album contains for example "The Guillotine" and is a follow-up to the Communist's "Party Music" containing e.g. "5 Million Ways to Kill a C.E.O", which Boots performed at Occupy Oakland (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JkKQzd-g92M).
We're hosting the second installation of our free market common, where we bring stuff we don't want and pick up stuff we do. We also serve fika, talk trash, talk politics and talk trash politics.

None that are specifically like that, but a bunch that have similar politics.
Books: I'm partway through Criptiques, but it's good so far. In terms of personal narratives, All the Weight of Our Dreams, Typed Words, Loud Voices and Loud Hands, for sure.
Also, And Straight on Till Morning has a long essay on lawsuits against Judge Rotenberg Center. Authoring Autism discusses autistic agency extensively, especially from a rhetorical (and neuroqueer/liberation) perspective.

I'm still learning how to get rid of the urge to mold people into being right for the position I want them in my life
& instead choose to let go of whatever position I've decided for them to then opt for something that fits ~us~ as we, individually, are
