Post-Modernity and the Appeal of Anarchism: Follow-up

On December 5th, I presented at the East Bay Anarchist Bookfair and Conversation Event because there were not as many presentation submissions as I had hoped for. During the initial organizational meetings for the event, we discussed what the theme would be, which became both the Inhuman and the Anthroposcene. Thinking about the question, “what […]

Ouchie

On 9/11/2015, I made the mistake of breaking my foot. The bone I broke is the calcaneus (or, “heel bone”). It is sometimes referred to as a Don Juan Fracture; or, a Lover’s Fracture. The term “Lover’s Fracture” comes from the nature of the break: besides car accidents, it is a break that usually happens […]

Behind the Glamor

In my last entry, I made an attempt to describe the relationship between office work and the power of appearances. To recap the growth of both office work and what may be thought of as the entertainment industry account for some of the significant changes that came of the 20th Century. Some connections between the […]

Glamor, Charm, Charisma and Boring Office Work

In old and forgotten times and places, charisma was thought to be an attribute that could be influenced through metaphysical means: the casting of spells, the blessing of gods, the alignment of stars.

Identity and Developmental Psychology (for anarchists)

I often read questions posed by anarchists that to really answer, require insight into the psychological development of individual subjects. Additionally, what I’ve noticed along with the frequency of these sorts of questions is the extent to which anarchists want nothing to do with psychology. I’ve never been entirely certain why this is, but giving […]

Anarchists and Dionysus

I’ll write it later, but the idea is going to be about us Dionysian types and the difficulties of dealing with the revolutionaries. This isn’t going to be some Nietzsche blah-blah. There has and still is a rift between the “serious revolutionaries” and the punks, artists, hedonists, queers, whatever. The difference between how we hate […]

More questioning of Sexuality and Identity

I’ve been trying to come up with a term to summarize a concept: DGaF-Sexual (DGaF = Don’t Give a Fuck), I-don’t-know-or-care-sexual, are-you-asking-me-if-i’ll-do-you-sexual. None of it is sticking. I’ve written enough general stuff about this, but I don’t even think queer or binary-opposed arguments are cutting it. I really just don’t see any point to defining […]
