To My Critics: My Own Peculiar Albatross

From Bellamy Fitzpatrick dot com by Bellamy Fitzpatrick

Under different circumstances, I would not have brought this issue up so early in my blog, and perhaps would never have brought it up, but the recent mention of me on The Solecast has made me think it is necessary to lay this issue to rest once and for all. My hope is that I will never have to comment on it again, but will be able to reference this blog entry and the podcast links associated with it to any and all future critics.

From It's Going Down

Invitation/ Call for Participants:

After various attempts to break with the endogamy of our collectives, of trying and failing to move beyond merely interpreting the works of classical anarchists, we have decided to launch this call. Our objective is to meet others and exchange experiences, skills, ideas and dreams; to return anarchism to the streets and incorporate it into everyday life.

From It's Going Down

In this episode of the It’s Going Down podcast (originally recorded for Pacifica Radio), we present a discussion and analysis on the evolving impeachment crisis. Fundamentally we ask if we have a dog in this fight, as the Democrats, who have spent years advancing and helping to fund Trump’s drive toward war, his growing attacks on migrants, Muslims, and the poor, and his massive transfer of wealth into the hands of the elites through his tax cuts, are now pushing for an impeachment inquiry over totally unrelated matters.
