Technomancer at The Student Insurgent
I’m a trans woman, nerd, and anarchist and occasionally write things here. I’m most often active on Mastodon, a decentralized and federated social media network (see Fediverse link above).

When we talk about “Solidarity”, there often is a problem where it turns into a leftist version of “thoughts and prayers”, rather than what it was originally meant to be: an umbrella term for actions taken from one place to support the people of another. This article seeks to provide a universal jumping-off point, instead of focusing on a particular state of affairs in a particular state’s borders. The situation on the ground is always changing, and this article would otherwise become irrelevant after a month or two.
*This is the first of the web exclusive articles written for exclusive publication on The Student Insurgent’s website Introduction Elitist publications are scaremongering1 to the bosses of the world about “Quiet Quitting”, a new term that asserts working for your scheduled hours - and nothing more - is a problem. This article will provide a brief introduction to this concept, then explain why it’s dumb as fuck. The Facts About Quiet Quitting The first known mention of “quiet quitting” was on Twitter2 as a suggestion for a doctoral studies paper on the greatest leadership challenge we face today
Introduction With the reorganization of The Student Insurgent over the course of the summer including the formation of this committee, it felt right to create a new website. This article discusses what to expect going in, and the philosophy that got to version 2.0 of the website, which is now live as of the publishing of this article. Don’t worry about the old site! You can still access version 1.1.5 (the last version of the old site) at https://old.
Resignation rates in the so-called United States have been increasing far above the usual upper limit of 2.4% from the last 20 years. They have gone up to 3% as of November 2021 according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The pandemic has made work even more miserable than it already was before, and people are sick and tired of it. It’s understandable then, why people are quitting their jobs. This phenomenon has become well-known as The Great Resignation, and could potentially be a long-term trend following the end of the pandemic.
