"this record is about all of us waiting for the end.
all current forms of governance are failed.
this record is about all of us waiting for the beginning,
and is informed by the following demands=
empty the prisons
take power from the police and give it to the neighbourhoods that they terrorise.
end the forever wars and all other forms of imperialism.
tax the rich until they're impoverished."

I find the message with this album interesting.

"we are waiting"
"we have demands"

I think it reflects clearly, perhaps unintentionally, just how angry and how powerless to act we feel at the same time.

We're waiting for something to give us permission to move, because to move now can often mean suicide by state.

We can and we must but where and when and how?

For me, it means preparing myself. And hopefully building something around me that could be called community
