C&P from an email to friend who sent me previous #heyfeedfox link:
In general *punk I think is a sort of hacked agency claimed by people who have to live in a system but have neither ownership, nor authorship stakes in creating it.
The politics of "oppression" being projected onto the system is a sort of naive first-order response. *punk is a second-order response. A sort of "we didn't start this, but we'll finish it" grasping at power.
Or at least cultural performance of power-grasping
