Organized mutual support has always been strong within the autism and disability communities, but it can g much further, writes Alex Kronstein, who looks at the Antigonish co-operative movement and the Black Panthers social programs for inspiration
Alex Kronstein reviews two board games rich people are bound to hate. He looks at Co-opoly, think Monopoly for people who rather cooperate than compete. Next he looks at Rise Up: The Game of People and Power, where the purpose is to build a social movement and beat an oppressive system. To cover the Nova Scotia angle for this review Alex also looks at Father Moses Coady of Antigonish, the founder of the cooperative movement and the main reason there are still so many co-ops of all sorts in Nova Scotia.
