  • Counter-example: when the IWW fought the Zapatistas.

    TLDR: The IWW had been so long suppressed by Mormons and the Salvation Army, that when the syncretist Zapatistas approached their strongholds carrying crosses instead of anarchist symbols, they identified them as just more footsoldiers of the capitalist class.

    Hope and Contradictions: My Year in Rojava (March 2024)
  • She paused for a moment. “Is that it? Nothing else? No other criticisms?” She was challenging me to dig deeper. In Kurdish revolutionary culture, couching your criticism in a compliment or an excuse is seen as a sign of dishonesty and liberalism. It should instead be treated as a gift, as something essential. “Be direct,” her tone seemed to suggest.

    I like that Heval Newroz accepted and encouraged criticism; that she views the revolution not as a finished work but a project still in progress. I agree you can't expect society to change quickly, and education is the key. I hope their revolution continues to progress in an anarchist direction.

    Thanks for sharing the article.

    Indoor farms are remaking the produce market — at a cost to the planet
  • Not recent, but I was privy to the latest advancements at the time. Perhaps there were a half-dozen overseers who lived near the fields and did labor management and crop observation, but there was always an army of latinx workers share-cropping less profitable crops during rotation seasons, driving pesticide sprayers, doing firewatch during dry days, maintaining the cesspool, and a number of other tasks that were either too person-intensive or beneath the white owners and their middle-class wage managers. 90% of the people on the industrial farm were people of color, and all the jobs they did were dangerous, underpaid, and essential. That percentage includes the white people working in the machine shop, and the contracted crop-dusting pilots.

    Ironically, the automation in development was targeted at reducing the number of middle-class white people needed to run the farm, and would have little effect on the army of cheap labor that was ever-present.

    I've seen a small portion of the beast that is large agribusiness, and I'll admit there may be other sides I haven't seen that may contradict my experience. But it is wise to doubt the rosy self-congratulatory picture taught in textbooks when confronted with the experiences of real life. Most of the people who bring you food for the prices you enjoy are invisible, and your education system is complicit in keeping things that way.

    Indoor farms are remaking the produce market — at a cost to the planet
  • Indoor/Vertical farming requires powering artificial light unlike traditional farming, but the energy use is a red herring.

    Traditional farming typically requires more labor, not less. The key factor is that it is very easy to have most of that labor done by migrant temporary-visa and undocumented workers, for lower wages than would be legal in an industry where exploitation on that scale has not been normalized.

    The primary cost, and the reason corporate vertical farms are failing to see profits is their professional labor force. If they could also be run by slaves, most would be competitive with traditional farming.
