The Revolution School

We are an open collective of artists, magicians, activists, hackers, academics, psychokinetics, witches, scientists, healers, empaths, thieves, chemists, archivists, gamers, freaks, friends, allies, and enemies (aka Superheroes and Scroogers). We began in August 2020 to form the two action teams, Operation Scrooge and League of Superheroes. The Revolution School has since expanded to process, inspire, support, and facilitate actualizing projects by members of Rev School that embody and animate the Two Principles of The Revolution:

1. Always* operate from a place of abundance**
2. Always choose the most expansive*** route

* Always means pertaining to any manner of actions that can be deemed revolutionary.

** Abundance is knowing you are enough for the mere fact that you exist.

*** Expansive is reaching beyond binaries, hierarchies, and capital, which is simultaneously a shift from a classical/Newtonian physics worldview to quantum physics co-worldings.

Note: One can "only" decipher the most expansive route when one is operating from a place of abundance. The most expansive route can change from moment to moment as we move with spacetime and take account of and be accountable for the continually shifting specificities of entanglements and intra-actions with apparatuses, bodies, and material-discursive practices that co-produce subjects/objects and the world’s becoming.

We believe the primary reason someone holds onto and extracts power and resources is because of unacknowledged, unprocessed, and unloved trauma. A Scrooger is someone who actively befriends their traumas and, therefore, can have expansive relationships with another person’s traumas. A Superhero is someone who actively offers alternatives to carceral-based institutional apparatuses that have become naturalized.

Not only are our projects revolutionary; the group itself is emerging as its own revolutionary project. Currently, The Revolution School Google Group consists of over seventy members with varying, come-and-go, open participation. Out of this large group, dedicated team affiliations form to work on specific projects. As of 2021, we have formed two team affiliations: My Litttle BEI 🤖🐱 and ND Time Bandits.

Each active member of Rev School builds a player card to add to the expansion of The Revolution Deck: Scroogers and Superheroes, as either a Scrooger or Superhero or a hybrid of both. The cards are designed by Devin Alejandro-Wilder and inspired by Jessie Closson’s Superheroes/Scrooger Trello cards. Below are member player cards for My Little BEI 🤖🐙 and ND Time Bandits.
