I write a monthly newsletter about decentralization, autonomous organization, and authority.

I also write longform essays about specific topics that intersect with the above, like mental health, work, and cooperation.

I apply epistemological anarchism to topics in philosophy, science, technology, politics, and ultimately, culture, to reveal better possibilities for us in our personal health, communal organization, and daily life. I hope to light a path toward science-based, bottom-up organizing for better health, resilience, and autonomy for the average person with this work.

I'm currently interested in revealing how authoritarian rationality shapes much of our social institutions, thwarts our personal autonomy, and how anarchistic methods of analysis and approaches to organization can take power from bureaucracies and give it back to us.

I'm doing this by writing about the history of depression, and how authoritarian private and public interests have worked together to define it and exert authority over our mental health.

At the end of this series, I'll put together a tutorial that will show you, with evidence-based methods, how to apply simple, cheap, non-proprietary things to your own mental health for better wellbeing. 

My roadmap of upcoming content:

- State Legibility, IoT, and Smart Cities: How Technology Turns Us Into Objects
- Mutualism, Cooperation, and Group Selection vs. the Neodarwinian-Malthusian death cult
- Believing Women: The Medical Legibility of Autoimmune Diseases
- Don't be a Chicken: Taylorism, Fordism, Specialization, and Chickens
- Prisoner’s Dilemma, Finite and Infinite Games, and the Emergence of Cooperation

I will never put any of my content behind a paywall or claim intellectual property rights as I'm fundamentally opposed to IP, so this is just to support my time researching and producing this stuff. Thanks!
