Well, this might not last very long.
The anarchists who took over the Capitol Hill section of Seattle, with the tacit approval of the police department no less, appear to have a sourcing problem. The groups loosely controlling the area are clear about who is not allowed inside and who is welcome. Among those on the outs are police, while the group happily welcomed the homeless.
That is, until the homeless apparently ate their food and left them short of essentials, such as plant-based meat substitutes.
A person tweeting under the handle anarchomastia wrote:
“The homeless people we invited took away all the food at the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone.
we need more food to keep the area operational. please if possible bring vegan meat substitutes, fruits, oats, soy products, etc. – anything to help us eat”
This might end up being a problem as the people involved dubbed their little slice of heaven “autonomous.” That autonomy might evaporate once the group exists only to the extent that others feel inclined to provide them with subsistence. Then they become beholden, and then… hey wait! That just makes them one more corrupt government.
