Rude Awokenings vol. I
Personally I am STOKED to get plugged into a socialist organization that is DOING THINGS! And, on a psycho-spiritual level, my insides are still fucked up by my time as a traumatized activist in woke world.
That's why I'm writing this zine—not because I think endless critique on the pitfalls of neoliberal identity politics is a useful end in itself. But because I think reckoning with this worldview now, as it continues to gain cultural dominance in the US and be exported across the world, is a necessary part of our journey toward a unified, effective political left.
- excerpt from Introduction
Rude Awokenings is a serial zine sharing one artist's wrong-thinking socialist perspectives on all things leftism, identitarianism, social media, solidarity and whatever else is on my dang mind.
In this first issue, I go ballz to the wallz. Topics include OCD, racial purity politics, unborn babies duking it out with long-dead ancestors, Jesus Christ, self-loathing and of course, cancel culture. I hope you enjoy it. Thanks for being here. —Bebe
