Topic of the Week: A Book of Crosswords

Worker here. Since I have gone into semi-retirement I have been working on a project that reflects on my time at http://anarchistnews.org. It is called 50 Sectarian Crossword Puzzles and while the site tends to be non-sectarian, this puzzle book illustrates and celebrates most of the sects involved in anarchism. There are many of the inside jokes that long-time users of anarchistnews have come to enjoy and despise.

‘Anarchy – Civil or Subversive?’ : A Collection of Texts against Civil Anarchism (Dark Matter/ACN)

Bored of the type of anarchism that seems to exist only as a boring routine of endless meetings and crap benefit gigs full of self-important tossers?
Sick of middleclass mummy's boys pretending to be proles?
Fed up of being told what the “class struggle” is and isn’t?

We are too and so we put together this booklet about it.


Topic of the Week: Anarchist Projects in Relationship

It's easy (and simplistic) for new sites (and other media forms) to compete with each other. This is understandable since new projects are frequently started out of some kind of frustration with existing options, as well as out of some positive desire (for self expression, a particular kind of conversation, etc). This site was partially motivated out of frustration with Infoshop's liberal inclusions (among other things), and itsgoingdown was apparently motivated in part by irritation with the trolls here (among other things).

Topic of the Week: Housing

One of the biggest problems that most of us deal with is the problem of finding a place to live. In other words, the problem of housing. Housing is an issue that comes up over and over again. It can take the form of the sub-prime mortgage debacle that preceded the 2008 financial crisis, the rent strikes that preceded insurrection in Glasgow and Spain, squatting, land projects. It can also be seen as one of (if not the) primary compulsions driving our acceptance of waged labor.

The Unlikely History of Tolstoy College

By Jennifer Wilson from The New Yorker

There was a rumor, among professors who came on board later, that the founders of Tolstoy College originally wanted to name their school after Leon Czolgosz, the Polish-American anarchist who assassinated President William McKinley. Tolstoy, being a pacifist, gave them better cover with the administration of the State University of New York at Buffalo, under which the school operated, or so the story goes.

topic of the week: Games and Anarchy

Games are ubiquitous, and, as they become bigger and bigger money-earners, they're gaining in social cred (here is a link to someone promoting games as a way to solve serious world issues http://www.ted.com/talks/daphne_bavelier_your_brain_on_video_games?langu... although the idea of putting so much responsibility on fun seems contradictory).
