text Who Cares? A Feminist Critique of the Care Economy - by Nancy Folbre
We live in an increasingly uncaring world. Patriarchal capitalism offers rich financial rewards to those who pursue their individual self-interest and penalizes those committed to the care of others. Competition is more highly valued than cooperation, and individual rights trump social obligation. Family and community life are treated as leisure activities...

text 2013 worst year in decades for abortion rights-what can be done? - by Jane Cutter
The year 2013 nearly broke the all-time record for the most new restrictions on abortion passed in a single year. Some 22 states passed 70 different laws including late-abortion bans, doctor and clinic regulations, limits on medication abortions and bans on insurance coverage, according the Guttmacher Institute, a pro-choice research group.

text Dorothee Soelle: Teacher of God and Prophetess - by Willy Spieler
Twenty years ago Dorothee Soelle warned of that totalitarian religion in North America that is in power today. She spoke of “Christo-fascism” and meant the “Christian” glossing over a capitalist system that goes along with murder, exploitation and destruction. The harsh words can be found in “Mysticism and Resistance” (NW 10/83).

text The Timid and Intimidated Nature of the Pro-Abortion Movement - by Nick Nile
Not only should abortion be legal but it also is well worth arguing that having children should be made illegal (as in a crime). Now here is a statement even most sleeping Americans would agree is a radical proposition (so radical in fact you almost never encounter it). And yet it is a very practical and sane proposition, even to its extreme, logical outcome, that is allowing our very own human species to become extinguished (as in extinct). After all the ecological system of this world doesn...

text Democrat Obama Opposes Emergency Birth Control for All, Appoints Reactionary Pritzker - by Register Peace & Freedom or Green
Hardly a week passes when Democrat Obama gives us another reminder to register Peace & Freedom or Green. This week he proudly supports the appeal by his Justice Department FOR A SECOND TIME of a good court ruling that Emergency Birth Control be available without prescription to all women, regardless of age, who may have an unwanted pregnancy. He also appointed his financial sponsor, billionaire, anti-labor, banking crook, Penny Pritzker, to chair the Commerce Department.

text Occupy Oakland: The Assault on Patriarchy Continues - by Slenderbutter (repost)
At the GA on Sunday, 1/27, approximately 90% of those in attendance expressed an interest in continuing a discussion on the harmful practices of patriarchy at the GA next Sunday, 2/3. I take this to mean that we don’t want these problems to be neglected any longer. Several agenda items have been suggested for this work, and we hope others will critique this list and contribute items of their own. Here are some agenda offerings:
