What can you do to stop nazism and fascism right now? / Nazis recruite new members in the exact same ways as any other terrorist organization. / You take e.g. a young, impressionable person (usually male) with feelings of powerlessness, unsafety and insecurity.

He is given a fabricated enemy projection that he can blame for all the bad stuff he has to encounter in his personal life. // Why am I alone? Why does nobody care? / Why am I poor and miserable? / Why does everybodyhate me for no reason? // Fascists have what they crave: easy answers to complicated questions. // Because feminists and the gays want to enslave the heterosexual male! / Jewish elite! Illuminati! White genocide! / God has forsaken the West! Kill ’em all!

061218-afa (3)

First and foremost, nazis want POWER. For one reason or another they feel dispirited, humiliated, emasculated. / To such an abused soul it’s easy to sell REVENGE. // Leftist politics don’t have such sexy hero myths to offer, but rather just slow, troublesome long-term goals. / (Capitalism, structural oppression, toxic masculinity) / (Altruism, solidarity, humility, intangibility, abstraction, grass-roots level)

061218-afa (4)

Then why do nazis feel so powerless and vengeful? / Watch out, that immigrant’s trying to steal your cookies. / Yeah! He sure is! / (Cliche, I know.) // Nazis want to steal the power ”back” from the leftist ”elite.” / Capitalists want to steal resources from everyone*. / Looking kinda alike? That’s cause it’s the same goddamn thing!

(*: Kaikki = siirtomaat, köyhät, julkiset palvelut, luonnonvarat. Fasismin lisäksi patriarkaatti ja ihmiskeskeinen luontokäsitys ovat kapitalismille ominaisen oikeutusajattelun sivuoireita.) / (*: Everyone = colonies, people living in poverty, public services, natural resources. Along with fascism, patriarchy and human supremacist biosphere relationship are symptoms of the feeling of entitlement attached to capitalism.)

061218-afa (5)

(Flowers of evil: Power fantasy, recruitment, bitterness and vengeance.) / Here are some suggestions to you specifically! // 1. Disableing nazi support gigs and merchandise sales! / (City premises, event organizer.) / Contact those who enable nazi moneyflow and visibility!

061218-afa (6)

2. Call out hate speech! / Yo, shut up you racist fuck. / I’m not alone! / That person probably won’t change their mind (at least not immediately), nor will they even be listening. / But they sure will be listening! / Take a friend with, calling out hate can be dangerous sometimes!

061218-afa (7)

3. Guess what else diminishes fascism other than diminishing fascism? / It’s enlarging antifascism! // Donate to a human rights organization by means of money or labour! / (LGBTQ Pride team) / (Food not bombs)

061218-afa (8)

4. The usual, or sticker wars! / Sounds hippie? Exterminating nazi symbols from the streets is a valuable act nonetheless. // 5. And don’t forget demonstrations! Although demonstrations and punching nazis is the most visible and tangible form of antifascist activism, it’s not operating on the premise that ”there, now we’ve saved the world, boy how cool and exciting that was!” / Direct action isn’t always exciting and sexy, nor is any form of antifascist action any worse than another. All aboard according to their own skills and energy level! No pasaran! <3

Other than moving in, I haven’t blogged about living in a commune at all although I moved out in June. // And although I did live there whole nine months! / I was given birth by the commune to become the succesful artist I am today! Ha-ha! / A-hem… // We were six to eight (I forget) human roommates and like a dozen animals such as cats dogs, birds, lizards and bugs. A mixed bunch of students, job-havers and unemployed. / The proprietors rented out this huge mansion of a house to the bunch of us as long as they would finally find someone to buy the house.

180918-kommuuni (2)

Buying the house was by no means a thing to happen all that fast, you see the house had four small bedrooms, three large bedrooms, an enormous dining/living room and A GOD DAMN SWIMMING POOL DOWNSTAIRS INDOORS. / Welcome to luxury communism, y’all! / (I tried the pool like twice because I mean… the fuck?) // Clearly the house was originally built to accommodate a large family with children. The walls were thin as paper to make sure the adults would hear the kids go about their shenanigans. / Niko, no!!! / Juice / (Paint thinner) // This was not a very practical feature in a young adult household, should one prefer to get up at seven in the morning. / (Normal speaking voice) / (A dog startled by her own shadow) / (Stairs cracking) / Not all of us were able to have a soundproof room, nor did the earplugs help with the looming feeling of constant human presence.

Living half my adult life with singular roommates was all fine, with a lot less household maintenance and a lot more solitude. / Roommate’s traveling, aika nakuilla! / Huulisynkkaa henkesi edestä! / Yuck. // Communes however require a shit-ton of maintenance, house meetings and surprise guests. / If only I had seen that coming! // Sure, it would’ve been mighty credible as an anarchist to live communally and grow tomatoes in the back yard, but I’m far too unsocial for that kind of stuff should it require living in a kolkhoz. / IF I CAN’T SECLUDE, IT’S NOT MY REVOLUTION!

But honestly tho, the best thing about the commune was getting to know all the queer anarchist individuals in the city. I wouldn’t change a thing about that experience <3 / Greetings from the pink-black bubble, y’all!

In Rehab Theatre people mostly know me as ’Niksu.’ / ’Niko-Petteri?’ Is that a comic book character of yours or what? / (New director) //…Uh, no. It’s me. / Oh! Ah-ha! Ha! Ha!!! // But what about my blog? The image of a Niko-Petteri as curated and moderated by myself? / What about the ’self’ as a social, teleological, cultural construct? / What about the position of the stars in the sky??? / Niksu. / Niksu!

Moro nääs, halluukkonää nähä mun luurankotuheron? // Mikä surettaa, pikku goottityttö? / Ku mää en löyvä mun röökejä.

My new job starts tomorrow. // How’s it feel? / Thanks for asking, I am FUCKING TERRIFIED! // I haven’t had a paying job in 1 ½ years. Doesn’t 500+ days count as long-term unemployment? / Yummy, delicious free taxpayer money! Guffaw! Systeemi on mätä! // I’ve tried to develop myself during this time. Maintain my health, sleep schedule, diet, relationships, political goals… / And don’t forget moment relax! // ”Professional skill” is an empty and arbitrary term! Salary work is not an inherent value! / BUT I’m excited to have a chance at some sort of micro-scale economical autonomy. And to have a job in my own field in a very interesting establishment.
