Black and Green Review
Black & Green Podcast 9: 6-5-2018.
Some podcast housecleaning, now available on the Channel Zero Anarchist Podcast Network, upcoming Goodlife Revival interview and Gathered Remains promo. Info on submitting work for Black and Green Review no 6. Monsanto's insane 'Climate Fieldview' "social network": automation and automatons for a dismal future. Discussion on Barbara Ehrenreich's excellent new book Natural Causes. On growing up a Zionist and writing a book about Christian missionaries, but not overlooking the colonization of Israel. Readings from Fredy Perlman.
We are excited to announce the start of the newest project of the Black & Green Project, cookies which are guaranteed to meet your feral needs. After years of scraping by financially, and using our own funds to underwrite the project of an anthropology-based anarcho-primitivism (which is obviously the only true anarchy), we have concluded that as a compliment to the Feral Revolution, we will implement a mutual aid project to fund the wild revolt through the sale of cookies.
Episode 2: Feb 15, 2018.
Some thoughts on mass shootings and violence, the importance of community and conflict resolution. Anti-missionary intermission, fucking with missionaries. Why I hate philosophy rant and thoughts on "anti-academic" posturing.
You've been asking, now here it is. First introductory episode of the new B&G podcast is up at archive.org
There's a page for the Podcast in the top bar navigation with more info and contact form to submit questions, comments or whatever else for future episodes. Consider this a work in progress.

From It's Going Down by Kevin Tucker
Fake news is an insanely stupid story.
At the very least, it should be. But after a narcissistic, anthropomorphized internet troll beat out an old school, textbook neo-liberal for the United States presidency, it has become absolutely and begrudgingly unavoidable. It serves equally as a phrase used to debunk the exposure of true misinformation as well as a term for the misinformation itself. Somewhere in there is the punch line to a joke Marshall McLuhan might have made up.
From Black and Green Review - by Sky Hiatt
The advanced civilization of the present is marketed as a stronghold of fortified security where citizens can confidently live out their lives free from the dangers posed by uncivilized life. Life spans advance, health improves, and we are protected from the threat of wildlife attacks, attacks from nation states or terrorist invasions. Considering this popular narrative on its own terms, it would seem that those fortunate enough to be living in such societies would be typified by fearlessness and living fearless lives. But, ironically, though securities have advanced and proliferated, our fears have not receded. To the contrary, they have evolved in step and thus are ever-escalating. So far at least, our fears are always one step ahead of our security technologies.
