Track at the end?

Do a Q and A w/o Aragorn so Ariel can shine through. She seems like she wants to follow the party line and I get that. Aragorn and his "criticize everything" approach makes people apprehensive and fearful of expressing a thought else they might have it trampled by King Aragorn of Hobbitland. TBH, I listen to the show for Aragorn's opinions, but I do see why all cower before him. Even Bellamy is forced to cut his own balls off. These conversations aren't between peers. It is an apostle/acolyte exchange. was just a vasectomy.

A! and I disagree about a number of things - a major of my praxis (autarky, forest gardening) is disagreeable to him, for instance, and we have theoretical differences on what he calls Indigeneity and what I call ideology that have come to light in two different episodes of The Brilliant. Of course, he is something like fifteen years my senior and has been around the anarchist milieux for far longer than I have (I'm almost an outsider, really), so I deferred to him on a number of things on The Brilliant, given that so much of the show has been about examination of and critique of the anarchist milieux. Probably one of the failures of the show was not sufficiently showcasing how we disagreed, which usually makes podcasts more interesting - that and the lack of on-the-air castrations, of course.

only one of the many....stick to the day job Aragorn! and take those orders from your boss for which you sell your soul and your credibility as an 'anarchist!' The alarm goes off... time for work... time to sell your soul... again and again ha ha ha

Or better, Aragorn do his version of "Hard Talk" for the show. Or maybe a section called "The Takedown" where he rips someone a new asshole if he can't pull an interview.

I cannot detect any apprehension or fear when Ariel gives her take on TOTW. Aragorn does not come across as someone who wants others to defer to him because of his many years as an anarchist.Deference is such a non-anarchist thing to do,because it suggests yielding to presumed superior knowledge.I refer to Zerzan,Aragorn,Gelderloos,Black and other anarchist writers,past and present,but I will not defer to them.

LOL! I troll you! I troll you! LOL! I'm so successful! Now you question your very existence because I had 5 minutes of free time. LOL! Fuck you! LMAO! I'm in your head, making you think your consciousness chose this line of thinking, when really I made you think! I'm so powerful. BTW Bellamy, you are too good for that land project bullshit. You are better on a podcast. Much better praxis. Why haven't you taken on Dr. Bones yet? He totally messed with your dude while acting like he has no connection to him. How does your land project fit into your egoism? Where are you going with your ostrich syndrome? Don't you see that state failure will create an upheaval which renders all your efforts useless? Where do you stand on Sir Einzige? He seems like a fellow traveler, wanting to make little bio-centric, white friendly micro-states, just like you. How many people of color and queers on working on your land? Don't you need significant investments to do that? If having money to throw around is praxis, then why aren't you funding projects that accomplish real goals instead of milking cows?

is that you furreal?

No. I'm just provoking Bellamy to become better than some hick ass farmer.
