Defund Social Workers

Nice piece by @Emily Cooke

in “PMC” terms: Social workers are a disciplinary arm of capital, obviously, but their profession is made out to be something else, something about justice, which is both an authorizing myth AND the terms on which social workers themselves come to resist their assigned role.

I see people are getting upset about this. if you're interested in hearing more about the ambiguous role of professionalized care workers, here's a podcast about that. dissentmagazine.org/blog/know-your…

but i also understand if you're just here to get mad. i do that too.
