THE SCOOP-

This August will be the launch of the Institute for Advanced Trouble-making, a week-long anarchist theory and action summer camp. Camp will take place from August 11th – 18th, 2017 in Worcester, MA.

Our long term goal for the I.A.T. is to create a lasting anarchist education hub in the Northeast that can train new and old organizers alike beyond the basics in anarchist theory, anti-oppression and movement building.

Topic of the Week: dating...

It can be tricky finding compatibility in dating and relationships at the best of times. So how do anarchist views and ways affect these things, especially considering anarchists make up a tiny percentage of the overall population?

Does dating within established anarchist circles help? Or does this become stagnant at some point?

For people living outside major centres, how do you find people to date who are of like mind or even who are not hostile to your ways?

ARRm and Hammers: a further response to Alexander Reid Ross

Alexander Reid Ross is right that he attended my anti-civ discussion group at Dry River Anarchist Collective several years ago. It's about all he gets right in either of his recent pieces insinuating sinister affinities between fascism and post-left anarchists. But then, he always had the attention span of a flea-hop.

I'm also one of the writers identified as post-left in “Egomania,” along with Fredy Perlman, John Zerzan, and others.

“The question is not: who has the guns? but rather: what do the people with the guns do? 10,000 or 100,000 proletarians armed to the teeth are nothing if they place their trust in anything beside their own power to change the world. Otherwise, the next day, the next month or the next year, the power whose authority they recognize will take away the guns which they failed to use against it.”

Back in 1967, Guy Debord wrote, “It is the sun that never sets over the empire of modern passivity. It covers the entire surface of the globe, endlessly basking in its own glory.” When he wrote that sentence, the late Monsieur Debord may have been under the impression that “it” was his “spectacle,” but it may as well have been porn.

“Porn is the sun that never sets over the empire of modern passivity. Porn covers the entire surface of the globe, endlessly basking in its own glory.”

From Black Rose Anarchist Federation

Last night the U.S. military launched nearly 5 dozen cruise missiles at Syria from U.S. Navy ships in the eastern Mediterranean Sea. This was a U.S. response to chemical attacks against civilians allegedly ordered by Bashar al-Assad. The Democrats and Republicans are united in their support for U.S. imperialism. Hours before the attack Hillary Clinton “came out of the woods” to say that the U.S. should conduct air strikes against targets in Syria. Today stocks in Raytheon and Lockheed Martin, war profiteers who make hellfire missiles, have been rising. The war profiteering companies U.S. officials euphemistically call the “defense industry” are full of alchemists who know the right mixtures to turn blood, horror, displacement, and human misery into profits. It is difficult to formulate an adequate response, beyond our general stance against imperialism and militarism, when there is so little information to go on beyond U.S. State Department statements and corporate media reporting based on those statements. However the following are some short initial thoughts from Black Rose – Central Illinois. This is not a definitive position paper or anything so official, but simply an initial reaction.
