If the latest controversies have taught us anything it is that the newest generation of anarchists (and anarchist-adjacent) deal with political disagreements differently than we have in the past. The story is likely apocryphal but it is said that when Johann Most (German anarchist who immigrated to the US in 1882 to join the labor movement here!) talked shit (generally implying that the Berkman assassination attempt against Frick was not what was claimed by Goldman) Emma whipped him across the face.
From Little Black Cart
Welcome to the quarterly newsletter of the Little Black Cart project. We distribute anarchist anti-political books, pamphlets, and newspapers.
LBC is continuing on with our new, lighter 2017 schedule. This year we anticipate publishing 4-6 titles rather than the 10+ we have been making for the past five years.

Easter: a day normally celebrated by the recollection of Christian myth, the painting of eggs, and the wide scale eating of pork in clear defiance of Judaic law.

From The Brilliant
It turns out that as time goes by The Brilliant is finding its identity as a place for in depth conversations about the life and projects of different anarchists around the US. This episode continues a focus on the Southwest (LA & AZ). Episode 44 is a long conversation on the topic of intra-scene fighting. What are the rules? Are there rules? Episode 45 is more of a freewheeling conversation about bad @ podcasts, opinions, and some back-and-forth.
It can be tricky finding compatibility in dating and relationships at the best of times. So how do anarchist views and ways affect these things, especially considering anarchists make up a tiny percentage of the overall population?
Does dating within established anarchist circles help? Or does this become stagnant at some point?
For people living outside major centres, how do you find people to date who are of like mind or even who are not hostile to your ways?
