(Food Not Bombs, May 24, 2005)

Last week, the ACLU reported they received documents that reveal the FBI "is targeting peaceful political activists for harassment and building files on constitutionally-protected political activities and associations that have nothing to do with terrorism or other criminal activity." Apparently, they are particularly interested in Food Not Bombs, a non-violent activist group that opposes the government's prioritization of war and military programs over social programs.

It is difficult to live with the forces of alienation that cut so deeply into the world around me. The cuts are severe, but they're manifested in both subtle and striking forms -- as both a silently infectious condition and a whirling maelstrom of spite: from a painful number of day-to-day interactions that are based on exchange, to the disempowerment associated with wage labor, to the countless number of times that I've stood with clenched fists and disingenuously thanked a police officer for not giving me a ticket when I wasn't wearing a bike helmet. When it's so rare that I'm afforded an opportunity to really be myself, it's an ardous task to make sense of myself and my life in this condition. I imagine that many other anarchists have similar difficulties.

It's easy enough to hedge about politics. It comes naturally and most of the time the straight answer isn't really going to satisfy the questioner, nor is it appropriate to fix our politics to this world, to what feels immovable. Politics, like experience, is a subjective way to understand the world. At best it provides a deeper vocabulary than mealy-mouthed platitudes about being good to people, at worst (and most commonly) it frames people and ideas into ideology. Ideology, as we are fully aware, is a bad thing. Why? Because it answers questions better left haunting us, because it attempts to answer permanently what is temporary at best.
