This summer included fun trips to Seattle (the NW is the best!) and a wonderful trip to Minneapolis. The midwest is a refreshing change from the coastal anarchist scene. Less sectarian, less bohemian, and full of interesting projects. People should stop moving to the coasts and make the Midwest more awesome! Halloween is near. The […]

Arirang

From: Chaos Marxism Chaos Marxism aims to be a technology of ecstacy – or, more importantly, integration of ecstacy into the Real World of Horrible Jobs, of inner and outer worlds – which has always been the goal of mystical paths and dialectical materialist praxis. Capitalism generalises alienation, in which work is turned against the […]

Samavartaka: An Open Letter to the Sacred Order of RAAN

From: Redanarchist.org By Nachie 09.15.2010 “Today, a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration – that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively. There’s no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we’re the imagination of ourselves. Here’s Tom with the weather.” […]

A rejection of essence – Part 2

5 minutes have passed since the interaction in front of me. The homeless man slowly places his glass to the table. He drank two full glasses of milk and sat there, glowing in pride for being ‘one of us’. Everybody in the cafe watched from the corners of their eyes — this man was not […]

What is left to write must not be writ.

Some Anarchists write of very deep, philosophical, historical, and ethical questions: they know their boundaries. Other Anarchists repeat the same drivel over and over again: they’ve memorized their rhetoric. Then there are Anarchists who put their pens to the tasks of strategy, tactics, daily life, and what to do: they know the difference between theory […]

Discordianism as Perfect Nihilism

From: Principiadiscordia.com By Cain Discordianism as Perfect Nihilism. It’s funny, but the more I read about Nihilism, the more I think Discordianism is one possible antidote to it.
