Many of you will have heard of NAASN, the North American attempt at creating an academic anarchist event. It has has nine events around North America. I've attended about 4-5 of them and our guest this week is somehow involved in the event/project. Nathan Jun is not just an academic though, he is also a social media commentator and the editor of a new collection of Hipolyte Havel essays by AK Press. What is old is new again!

Since it is often said that if you can't say anything nice you shouldn't say anything at all... I've been standing mute for some time. I'm sick of it but I am exhausted by all the hate and all the different permutations of how my words can be, and usually is, misrepresented by the listening audience. But I get it, attempts at humor are best landed to a very sympathetic audience and snark never sounds good if you don't agree with the snarker...

What's new with LBC - Spring 2018

From Little Black Cart

Practically, this means our project is less historical than others. We have published plenty of historical material, but mostly it has been about lives we relate to, rather than learned, "history-making" sweeps like the ones that Avrich and Ackelsberg have done so well. For better and for worse, LBC is more about theory and philosophy.

Our book for this quarter reflects this bias. It is the new translation by Wolfi Landstreicher of Max Stirner's (aka JS) The Unique and its Property. Because this is a book of ideas, particularly ideas shared by some of our closest friends, we decided that we wanted to do a bit more than usual for its launch.

Scott Crow has been a good friend for years. We agree on almost nothing except on how to disagree. As a grown adult I've probably had the longest conversations on record with Scott. We are both talkers. We both have a bit too much pride in our ability to convince people by using our words. I'm not sure we ever consider ourselves convinced, or convincable, by others. We power on.

From Medium by A.S. Robak (Dec 18, 2017)

It should not come as surprise to the majority of our population that there is a fairly new phenomena that has arisen within the later half of the 20th century that pertains to the preservation of our environment. Just as light green environmental groups and lobbyists have gained traction within the mainstream, so have their more radical underground counterparts.
