The pamphlet Self as Other - Reflections on Self-Care published by the crimethInc. collective deals with the concept of self-care and health within the capitalistic system. In experiential reports it tells about rethinking it.
"In activist circles and elsewhere, it has become commonplace to speak of self-care, taking for granted that the meaning of this expression is self-evident. But 'self' and 'care' are not static or monolithic; nor is 'health.' How has this discourse been colonized by capitalist values? How could we expand our notion of care to encompass a transformative practice?" CrimethInc.
