So, yet another school shooting followed by outrage and the usual call for change. The ugly truth is that we are all the problem, even those of us who don't own guns and who want . We're the problem we because we're too passive. We demand far too little of ourselves as citizens of a supposed democratic republic by the people, for the people, we've been content to watch passively as "our" government, proves ineffectual at solving problems. Voting and typing isn't enough.

Some examples that I've seen or been a part of: Bike co-op (fixing donated bikes, teaching repair skills to kids, , transport), (shared housing fostering community, shared resources, , economical), community gardens (learning how to grow food, mutual aid, time spent together, food production), tool library (sharing resources), community free schools/libraries. Almost any local business can be built as a co-op. via potluck meals

@Dennyhenke I've just written a thread on twitter along similar lines - particularly the food, community gardens and community kitchens.

Trying to get something set up in my neighbourhood to address chronic hunger and malnutrition.

Thinking guerilla gardening might be the best tactic because the wheels of power move so slowly.
