Reddit Going Public: Saving the Amazing Anti-work Library

I have for years now been concerned about the corporate takeover of the world and the rise of social injustice and the huge suffering worldwide caused by GREED. Reddit has just filed to go public which can have huge implications of censorship although I am not a fan of disinformation. I just do not participate. I was recently alerted by a Laura Flanders podcast of Collective Economics of the Reddit group, Anti-work. Fantastic resources in that interview.

This is a quick try at sharing their amazing library. We will see if technically this works and if the group has leaders/co-creators who do not approve. Here goes. I will clean up later. Meanwhile, I highly recommend joining Anti-work: Unemployment for All, not just the Rich.

By Nancy

Traditionally, I would be called a teacher, based on my high level of education and experience. Using leading edge practices, concepts, and products including quantum and co-operative inquiry methods, I see our time together as co-learning; the web and culture likes "coach", so be it. In co-op inquiry and in Buddhist terms, there is no teacher except the Self. Therefore, I call myself a researcher and co-learner into quantum processes based on current and ancient sciences that can transform lives. We need only a little time to do this and I offer ongoing support as needed. My motto is, together, we heal and together we learn and co-create a world of joy and peace. I currently live in the Land of Enchantment, New Mexico. I grew up in the enchanted lands of the Monterey Peninsula, between the birthplaces of many leading edge beings and processes, Big Sur (Esalen) and San Francisco, where I completed 24 hours of a 36 hour Ph.D. in Transformative Learning and Change at CA Institute of Integral Studies. My interests and my passions are deep. I embrace life and know transformation very personally.
