Attentat on Immediatism Podcast

Attentat is a journal of nihilist and anarchist ideas, including "Insurrectionary Anarchism as Activism" and "Nihilism as Strategy," two of its essays. "Art of Nothing" is a nihilist piece patterned after Tsunzi's the Art of War. "A Critique of Critique" is "the gap between what we need and what we can get" and "a lament about the role of recuperation and our role in perfecting it." "A Howl Against Marx" looks at Marx in each of his roles as sociologist, economist, and political philosopher, then concludes that "[o]ur hatred for the system does not accompany a capacity to do much about it. We would not even recommend building this capacity. This building of capacity is one of the surest ways to be noticed by the agents of authority.... Therefore we are left with little but our howl." Five additional essays have been left unrecorded for you to enjoy in print. Attentat is published by Pistols Drawn and is available from LittleBlackCart.com.

Toward an Army of Ghosts on Immediatism Podcast

Tom Nomad would like to see anarchists operate in increasingly illegible ways, whilst conducting real-time analysis about police operations, as explained in this companion volume to The Master's Tools. To challenge the state, anarchists must operate within the gaps in police coverage, with the intention of disrupting policing itself, which is what enacts the state in material reality. Thinking theory itself is action, and has value to the extent that the theorizing we are doing interrupts policing and so disrupts the state.

Permanent Subsistence Zones on Immediatism Podcast

"I am not aiming for relationships that always exclude any degree of sedentariness any more than I am aiming for an obligatory sedentariness.... The village isn't a stage on a downhill momentum toward urban life. The net and song and mask aren't first steps on a path toward rank and privilege, environmental degradation or ever increasing degrees of mediated lives. They are merely the outcome of sensual wisdom, of embeddedness, of organic life ways. In this sense my destination is primarily toward small villages and seasonal camps." ~Seaweed in Permanent Subsistence Zones

Finally, John Moore's "Beyond the Fragments: A Response to Industrial Society and its Future" offers a critique of the manifesto, reacting directly to Kaczynski's EF persona during the Unabomber events.
