Why is it That Others Feel No Interest For Us? That is us. We are on the verge of recognising ourselves. We inscribe the area and the activity. It is us, us, us. We are the ones who spend our energies in the struggle against capital. We define capitalism, we define the struggle against capitalism, we define ourselves as the agent of that struggle, and we sketch out the goals that we are fighting for. But doesn’t this involve only a very small number of people? This only involves a very small number of people. And capitalism is a system of social relations that conditions the existence of billions of human beings. So, if this system of social relations is so harmful why aren’t there many, many more people involved in the struggle against it? We don’t want to talk about that.
An online discussion about Frere Dupont’s essay ‘Why is it That Others Feel No Interest For Us?’ hosted by FORGED BOOKS, Manchester’s anarchist reading group.

If you don’t have Chromium or Chrome and don’t want to install a new browser you can use one of Jitsi’s apps here: https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet-electron/releases/tag/v2.0.2 - you will need to change ‘Server URL’ in settings to https://8X8.vc/ and join the room /forged/books For mobile devices try: https://jitsi.org/downloads/ - you will need to change ‘Server URL’ in settings to https://8X8.vc/ and join the room /forged/books In our test session, the mobile apps kept losing their connection. If you’re really stuck, you could try joining the meeting room /forged/books with the desktop and mobile apps listed here: https://download.8X8.vc/
