Last night we hosted a political potluck dinner that we’d advertised on several local encrypted message groups. Our home – oh, it’s bloody good to be back – filled with new faces and old friends, with those of us in this growing tribe of folk who have become increasingly politically awake to what gaming the pandemic has enabled. We shared food and conversation about the forthcoming federal election.
We spoke to the story of how the pandemic has been used to erode democracy, silence dissent and generally pave a way for (unelected) neofeudal lords and ladies to fuck around with we common folk. ‘We’ being the burgeoning global neoserfdom, all supposedly fighting against each others’ algorithms and other data-mined manipulations while unwittingly being shaped into passive receptors of synthetic-biology food and medicine – UBI serfs with digital identities, controlled by centralised digital currency enforcing we only buy from big Energy, big Ag and big Pharma and get all our basic needs from companies owned by the global elites who are going to save us. Well, that’s at least how we’re reading the current situation.
What follows is our off the cuff, rather naive (open) take on the gathering last.

We welcome your comments and your shares. We’d love to hear about how you’re feeling about the upcoming election, and how you’re feeling about the political landscape in general.
Sending all the very best from Tree Elbow,
Patrick, Meg, Blackwood and Zero
