Political Origins: An Introduction

"We have to talk about liberating minds as well as society" - Angela Davis
Hello :)

This column will primarily be talking to various wonderful folks about their political views, how they developed, and many issues that said people are passionate about. To start out, I'd like to introduce myself.

My name is Rachael, and I don't particularly have any one ideology that I adhere to - but I am a Marxist. I'm passionate about feminism, music, and my two cats, Clarie and Pepper. I strive for my politics to mean something - to fight for everyone. 

I'd say as a whole that my politics and my work, they are entirely based out of love. I think one of the contributing factors to my becoming a radical is perhaps my constantly being in a negative environment.  When you truly see capitalist values for what they are - actual pain.

I hope that this develops into an interesting and insightful look at others' political findings, and perhaps shines some light into topics or points you may not have considered or have knowledge of.
