BECAUSE I WANTED TO. Anarchist Bookclub by FORGED BOOKS
I also came to be appalled at the somnolence of the peasants, who are mired in pain but feel no pain, and the ignorance of the workers, who work diligently while they are being devoured to their bones. If the chains that bind them are removed, they are likely to go to the wielders of political and economic power with their chains and beg them to chain them up again. Perhaps they will be happier if they are allowed just to sleep in ignorance.
An online discussion of BECAUSE I WANTED TO by KANEKO FUMIKO hosted by FORGED BOOKS, Manchester and Sheffield's anarchist reading group.
Online conversations take place on the Jitsi platform here: https://8X8.vc/forged/books
We recommend the Chromium browser on desktop: https://download-chromium.appspot.com/
Chrome should also work. We couldn’t get Firefox to work with Jitsi.
You can also use one of Jitsi’s desktop apps here: https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet-electron/releases/tags – you will need to change ‘Server URL’ in settings to https://8x8.vc/ and join the room /forged/books
If you’re really stuck, you could try joining the meeting room /forged/books with the desktop and mobile apps listed here: https://download.8X8.vc/
