Happiest Baby in the Bloc exists to partially document our combined experiences raising a child in an atomized, immiserated social and ecological desert and the techniques we use to combat the apparatuses of control that seek directly to undermine our project of creating our lives as free individuals.
We are two anarchist parents creating life-ways that will support and nurture our growing child, life-ways that are in direct negation of raising the model citizen as defined by capital. If post-industrial capitalism's main project really is the molding people in the image of itself, then we need to challenge that anthropomorphism of capital at the source, in our everyday life. This means attacking the mechanisms of conformity that ensure the reproduction of the existent (i.e the commodity, the spectacle, the school, the workplace, et cetera). We want to break the cycle. For good.
Our wish is that this web space will act as one working example where other pro-revolutionary parents and caretakers can draw inspiration, glean practical advice and steal ideas from.
Yours for the destruction of domination and the creation of healthy, vibrant and nurturing life-ways,
