From Little Black Cart

Welcome to the quarterly newsletter of Little Black Cart. We distribute anarchist anti-political books, pamphlets, and newspapers. This quarter we have a few new issues of ongoing journals and a new booklet by Ron Sakolsky and Seaweed. We are setting the stage for exciting new developments in 2018 and hope to clear our palates from the unsavory tastes of 2017. Begone! we say to the obsession with wrong headedness and headlines. Huzzah! we say to a focus on an anarchist life, projects, and friends.

Little Black Cart continues on with spirit and energy toward these aims, with you, and against dumb shit.

New Titles

In Search of the Masterless Men of Newfoundland

This title is comprised of two essays on the topic of the possibly mythical, definitely legendary, Society of the Masterless Men, a group of escapees from conscription, in the mid-1700s. This small book includes a new essay by Sakolsky, a modified reprint of a piece by Seaweed (originally published in his collection Land and Freedom), and an introduction by Sakolsky. This booklet could easily be seen as another chapter in the excellent and seminal book, Gone to Croatan.

The BASTARD Chronicles 2017

The fourth in the chronicles of the adventures of anarchist theory in the bay area. The theme in 2017 was evil, for reasons that will probably only suffer for being explained, but certainly are associated with the forced simplification of complicated realities; the polarization of thinking and acting; a general tendency toward even more us-versus-them attitudes than normal (which is saying a lot), and purges, witch hunts, etc. Presenters had different takes on why evil, what evil, and how evil, from an embrace of what is reviled to a questioning of revilement in general, to exploring specific practices that deserve more attention and analysis.

Atassa #2

Not necessarily the most controversial thing LBC has ever published, but certainly the publication that has caused the most furor so far. This journal gives a platform to non-anarchist, ex-anarchist, and a-anarchist, eco-extremist thought, not limited to, but including, some people who defend killing people. While neither of the two issues of this journal include communiques from the folks who claim to have done such killings, there is some sympathy with, and also some not-necessarily-sympathetic analysis of, the phenomenon, which apparently is extremely dangerous. So, we have all been warned.

This issue does not include any direct responses to the brouhaha in certain circles about the first issue, but there is a lot of what could be considered indirect reaction, including most significantly the heart of this issue--an indepth look at christianity: how deeply it has been instilled even in groups that consider themselves atheist, and what some of its underbelly has included historically.

Some would argue that eco-extremism is one of the few lines of thinking that takes seriously the idea that we are all complicit in our slavery, that we all have choices to make every moment of every day about how and if to resist.

Politics is the enemy of anarchy, and it knows it.



Atassa 2- ballsy move. is it as boring and dull as the first one?

Can already hear the sound of hateful circle jerking! Blah blah, platform this, blah blah crypto that! Something something kaczynski, gabba gabba suck-it-Aragorn! But seriously, I'll probably read it.

some excess verbiage, but enough depth to make up for it.

Fitting artwork for Atassa #2! A fucking Swastika!!! Not so crypto-fascist any more eh??? ;)

That's the ancient indigenous symbol of the eternal cycle of recreation, the opposite of totalitarian ideological unity.,.

"An ancient indigenous symbol." That's a bit vague. It was obviously put on there to provoke and there's nothing wrong with that, but just admit it.

that you know will provoke, and doing something to provoke.
the fact that folks get their panties in a twist about stuff like this is indicative of bigger issues.
just sayin.

Well, what I really meant was it is an existentialist-nihilist symbol, but because this whole method of perception and cognition is beyond the scope of most posters on this site, I chose the closest analogous group of folk who most resemble the ExiNihil seers, in their shamanic capabilities, which the folk on this site could most closely associate to, though individualist anarchist would in a broad sense represent this symbol, but with 3 spirals rather than 4, which signifies community.

Next to the sieg heils of the PFLP... Seems like that "swastika" is far less obvious.

I was joking by the way

The primmie nihilists aren't hiding it anymore: they're fascists, they've always been fascists! Does Alexander Reid Ross know about this yet? I'm posting an all-Portlander alert to meet up and form an antifa legion to storm Berkeley. We need to de-platform them on not only every bookfair and every website, but the country as well. Does anyone know if Abe Cabrera is queer and disabled as well as being POC? - I mean, that might be their one out in all of this, but... - no, I just fucking can't! I will never be calm on freedom of speech. I just fucking can't, I mean, if you come to my C4SS dojo, you'll see - we rage-blackout and throw tables when it comes to freedom of speech.

Everyone knows this.


Young William, I have received your dire call and will muster our PDX forces post haste! What diabolical forces would infiltrate ancient Indigenous tribes and creep fascist symbolism into their unadulterated consciousnesses?! The LBC primmie nihilist crypto fascists must have mastered time travel before your left market transhumanist altruistic engineers were able to, William. The consequences will surely be severe!

But fear not, Young William. I am penning another book, immediately!



If you disapprove of actions whose primary goal is killing completely random civilians...you're a Christian. I'm sure that will be a thoughtful analysis.

it's started already, the complaints about the reasoning in articles they haven't read.

I await to be proven wrong.
