  1. Nice story, but not a real solution
    is too idealistic, with human nature, trust is not something you can take it for granted, it needs time, sometimes a lot of time

  2. Seems like capital was the least important part of this, didn’t play a single role in anything. Activism and community building were the important things… why continue to perpetuate the capitalist system that got your ancestors into such a precarious position in the first place? This guy has lost the plot.

  3. "I believe the power of community has driven more change than capital ever has."
    You would be very, very, very wrong. Nothing has driven more change positive and negative than capital. It makes everything from vaccines to wars happen, kinda unbeatable when it comes to driving things.
