The existence of this possibility, most meaningful for the essential core of the present social order, is precisely a reason not to make our life outside already a prison: conventions and prejudices, progressive compromises and fleeting satisfactions which allow us to get to the next day, leading to constraint and fear that seeks to diminish us in our own eyes. This revolutionary project that each anarchist develops in themself also continues to develop when one is in prison. Contributing to it and not sacrificing our initiative to the dictates of repression is a revolutionary, not merely anti-repressive and of course human, solidarity that I also feel for anyone who stews in the dungeons of the State.

TOTW: How do you use your cyberspace?

It's no surprise that anarchists would reject the internet entirely as being used for liberatory purposes. After, it started out as ARPANET by the military, with the obvious intent of further dominating their territory as well as U.S. controlled locations abroad abroad. This ended up working perfectly as a business model as well in late capitalism, with the internet becoming a giant data collection scheme.

In memoriam: Joffre Stewart

From Hard Crackers by Max G. Bernard

Devastated. My long time friend Joffre Stewart has died. Joffre, a long time anarchist and pacifist (after serving in the military during World War 2) was a poet and was referred to in Allen Ginsberg’s Howl. [Ginsberg was taken by Stewart when they met years ago at a gathering in San Francisco. In his poem “Howl” Ginsberg refers to Stewart as a man “with big pacifist eyes sexy in their dark skin passing / out incomprehensible leaflets.” Stewart says, “Later I met Ginsberg again, and I said I did not think my leaflets were incomprehensible. He said that was a reference to his state of mind and that it had nothing to do with the leaflets themselves.”].
