From LBC about the book:

For those anarchistnews fans who miss Worker's acerbic and insightful bon mots on modern-day anarchy and anarchists, here is a fix (however temporary) for you.

Fifty crossword puzzles of occasionally ludicrous difficulty (there are scattered puff questions throughout also, for those of you, like me, who are terrible at these kind of games) are featured for your education and amusement.

Anarchistnews.org is the most popular, utilized, and non-sectarian news source pertaining to anarchists in North America. Its open commenting system continues to be one of the few spaces in which anarchists, nationally and internationally, converse about topics of the day, challenge each other, and critically engage with a wide variety of issues and events.

Worker retired from running the site after eleven years... Since then they have reflected on their time in the daily trenches of running the site, and this book is the result. These crossword puzzles speak to the years of comment threads, the ridiculousness and wonderfulness of the anarchist space in North America, and finally the absurdity of working with cantankerous, stubborn, and self-righteous people by way of essay or manifesto.

These puzzles should probably be done by a reading group or a group of friends. They are supposed to make you think, laugh, and perhaps smack your head. A more perfect metaphor for North American anarchism cannot be found.

should be for an aristocratic(anarchic not monarchic obvs) archaic idea of anarchism not some silly eschatological utilitarian futurism.

toaster fuckers

Transhumanism doesn't interest me because I'm broke and cynical. Like, is transhumanism about wearing a back-brace so that I can lift heavier boxes for my time-owner?

no transhumanism isnt about that. its about uploading your brain and consciousness to a computer server so after your mortal body dies you can control a robot who lifts the heavy box.

That would be far more palatable then the Abrahamic born silliness of Transhumanism. I would essentially see it as corporeally driven neo archaic values. There would be machineology but not the enframing enveloping accelerating utilitarian logic.

THAT is what black and blue should be.

I certainly agree with the religious eschatological fetishism which is similar to the sentiments of cargo cults in non-industrial societies. This shows the inherent psychological resemblance of diverse cultures when extrapolating linear time based mythological premises of the future. In the same way Western cultures dominant fetish is investment in future capital expansion.

blah blah everything should be stirner blah chistian influenced anarchists blah.

o hey Einzigebot

Obvs. Nietzsche, Wild, Novatore, Lao Tze, Archaic revivals. That kind of thing.

Damn you primmie scum and your crypto-nihilist "puzzles". I literally invented transhumanism on Usenet in the 2000s (that is how old and wise I am) to finish giant essays, which great sex can't even hold a candle to, and you noob kids are all just jealous!

Everybody knows this.
