  • Mutual Aid, by Dean Spade
  • Just finished this and thought it was pretty solid --ivan
  • sex, ecology & spirituality by Ken Wilber, talks about hierarchies (-Ajay)
  • The Cooperative Culture Handbook. Yana Ludwig and Karen Giming.

  • The Broken Earth Series - by N. K. Jemisin
    • The Fifth Season
    • The Obelisk Gate
    • The Stone Sky
  • the Ministry for the Future by Kim Stanley Robinson
  • Emergent Strategy - https://www.akpress.org/emergentstrategy.html
    • Inspired by Octavia Butler's explorations of our human relationship to change, Emergent Strategy is radical self-help, society-help, and planet-help designed to shape the futures we want to live. Change is constant. The world is in a continual state of flux. It is a stream of ever-mutating, emergent patterns. Rather than steel ourselves against such change, this book invites us to feel, map, assess, and learn from the swirling patterns around us in order to better understand and influence them as they happen. This is a resolutely materialist “spirituality” based equally on science and science fiction, a visionary incantation to transform that which ultimately transforms us.
