Today’s human landscape can sometimes appear very bleak. It is defined, among other things, by drastic stratification, unprecedented poverty, and the exploitation of the masses by a small privileged class. This is not a world that is short on suffering, and though we recognize that some level of suffering will always be a part of life, we also reject the notion that the injustice and oppression we see is somehow inevitable or acceptable. We strive to develop an understanding of the diversity of these experiences and how they intersect and relate as outcomes of the wide reaching white supremacist capitalist patriarchy. Armed with a more complete and accurate understanding , we move to abolish this system, to seize the problem at its roots. From this foundation, we can begin to materialize the ideals of liberation that will hold humanity to a standard of mutual respect and enriching cooperation.
