Reactions to AR and JZ. anarchistnews.org - how to run? Gerald Vizenor in Black Seed?!
McDonald's as China's new community; Raccoons Invade Brooklyn; School makes kids
standardized - and sick. An app to prevent deforestation. Rush to exploit Antarctica. Adorno:
"The freedom in philosophy is nothing but the capacity to lend a voice to its unfreedom." Key

Anarchism As Spectacle

From Destroy Everything

The “anarchist scene” is currently in an uproar. If people aren’t upset about Michael Schmidt’s racist remarks and possible “infiltration”, they are gossiping about the recent feud between Aragorn and Bob Black. Anarchism has, in the span of a few weeks, been reduced to the petty gossip of tabloids. Those at the head of these events are doing nothing but spectacularizing the events. In the Michael Schmidt case, AK Press decided to prematurely announce things, then wait until they could secure a more mainstream outlet to publish on. In the other case, we have seen a barrage of social media, along with a eulogy for Mr. Black, in a written/semi-physical war which could just continue ad nauseum. Why do we care about these things, of which the majority of us have no direct involvement? Why has reality entertainment reared its ugly head in anarchism?
