In the world we're fighting for (one without property or exchange, without classes or money, without a coercive state) the things that typically compel people to work under capitalism will have lost their hold over us. Why then, we're often asked, would anyone engage in productive labour?
Anarchists respond that people will be intrinsically motivated toward tasks which they find interesting and useful, that humans have an innate tendency toward creative, productive pursuits. To some, this makes intuitive sense. Others require a little more convincing, and it's hard to blame them. Our boilerplate response is lacking because it requires people to take for granted this proposed human tendency without an explanation of where that tendency comes from.

Election season. It's a sad time.
Elections are neither nothing nor everything. Within narrow bounds, we get to choose -- criminally narrow bounds that mean they cannot touch the things that mean life or death, more suffering or less suffering, for many, but can make small but real changes that mean life or death, more suffering or less suffering, for others. It would be politically foolish and morally dubious to ignore that.
