Announcing: The Northeastern Young Anarchists Network (NYAN)

NYAN: A meme project thoroughly committed to not being taken seriously.

from Center for a Stateless Society

It is with great excitement that I announce the formation of the Northeastern Young Anarchists Network. Formed by libertarian socialist members of several broadly leftist student activism groups on college campuses in the American northeast, NYAN (yes, like that nyan) seeks to be a lateral connecting point between anti-authoritarian leftists to discuss the finer points of anarchist theory and debate without the feeling that we must necessarily band together homogeneously to debate or counter authoritarian leftist views within activism groups. We represent a broad range of ideologies ranging from anarcho-communism to communalism to left-libertarianism to what Nathan Schneider identifies as “anarcho-curiosity” and beyond.

Anarchy Bang: Introducing Episode 46 – OK Boomer

From Anarchy Bang

Aging. In the nineties it seemed the average age of the anarchist horde was in the late teens/early twenties. By the WTO (happy anniversary) it was more like college aged or mid twenties. Today the bell curve is flattening out and an average seems well into the thirties. I remember a friend opined that as the economy stopped absorbing people the age range of an anarchist would continue to rise. Whether it is politics, the economy, or a change in counter-cultural norms the anarchist is aging. What does this mean? Does it mean that generation gaps are occurring in the anarchist space? Does it mean we have more money and conservatives in our midst? Are we experiencing the same OK Boomer moment the rest of the culture is? This is the second of the last four episodes of this show and we hope you can join us in conversation!
