from mother jones by Mason Adams, May 25, 2020

“Life in these mountains ain’t always been easy, so people around here take a stand when they see something they don’t agree with—and I’m one of them,” says walrus-mustached Jammie Hale in his thick southwestern Virginia mountain accent. “People that grow up in places like this, seeing their environment destroyed, it stirs them, it causes people to want to get involved, and that’s why I’m here.”

Prisons, Gender, and the Violence of Inclusion

When finally the cell door closes, when the jangling keys recede, you’ve arrived as far as you’re going that day. Then you can exhale alone with your mattress and be in your own body again, your body no longer a problem to be solved or a question to be answered.

Anarchy: Action in the Face of Uncertainty

From The Libertarian Labyrinth

By Shawn P. Wilbur

You can have the right elements in hand and still require a lot of experimenting before they are anything like an elegant ensemble. With this series on “Defining Anarchy,” I’m conscious, not for the first time, that between the simplest and most abstract sorts of definitions and those that we might really apply in practical terms there are a variety of clarifications regarding present contexts and future possibilities that need to be made.

Lecce, Italy: Without Authority

From Anarchists Worldwide

This was the expression of a Russian anarchist who, in the early years of the twentieth century, fought without quarter against the Authority and the iniquity that presented itself before him. The defense of property and the wealthy classes meant hunger and misery for everyone else, as well as jail and torture if these interests were undermined. More than a century later, the history of Russian and Polish anarchists, including the anarchists of Bialystok, a small minority of Jewish origin, speaks of the human and ideal struggle against the ferocity of the established order that starves and kills.

From https://twintrouble.home.blog/

Another episode, another seismic shift in the global landscape. This time, it’s an an unprecedented mass uprising against police led by activists, protesters and yes, rioters, who are making moves to change the violent systemic racism of the police, prisons and politicians.

Rambles in the Fields of Anarchist Individualism — No. 2

From Libertarian Labyrinth

I expect that my method in these exploration and experiments will be much like my daily circuits of the grassy hillside, as I cover the same general ground in all kinds of light and weather. But those atmospheric effects are not to be discounted, particularly when what we are circling are some fairly protean understandings of individuality. So there will be some advantage to sorting through the impressions a bit, as I present them.

Immediatism 83&84: An Anarcho-Satanic Reversal

The BASTARD Chronicles 2017

From Immediatism.com

As an Anarcho-Satanist, I envision a reversal of the polarity of biblical mythological symbolism -- seeing Satan as the "good," liberated rebel, and seeing God as an "evil," authoritarian fascistic dictator.
