Why do I spend so much time creating free high quality printable materials of old Yiddish texts and music, using open source tools?

Because I think that such materials and tools must be available to everyone—not just those privileged with academic access—if we want to bridge the chasm created between us and our ancestors by the Holocaust and the era of assimilation, and effect a Yiddish cultural revival in our Diaspora.

I can only imagine the kind of future we'd have if all the young queers I know who want to start communes didn't have to slave away for decades to have a possibility of maybe getting the land they need and instead were able to start experimenting with models to make the communities work and practicing their skills growing food and making high quality artisan goods.

@derpayatz such as one I saw that was released by a university press, I can't remember which one or the title at the top of my head, and that only focused on Ashkenazi leftism.

I also wasn't saying there was anything wrong with Yiddish revival at all, or with enjoying and reviving Ashkenazi culture.

@derpayatz It's fine. I will say I was never suggesting that everyone learn Judeo-Piedmontese, an extinct and barely-attested language, or even Ladino. Nor was my initial criticism even mainly directed at revivalism; it was directed more at a broader emphasis on Ashkenazi culture that I see in Jewish Currents, in leftist podcasts, etc.. Or in the Wikipedia article on the Jewish left, which was presumably written mostly by Jewish leftists, and Ashkenazi ones. Or on "histories of the Jewish left"
