From The Conjure House
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. This holiday is obliquely about rebirth or resurrection, whether a simple celebration of springtime or the foolhardy belief that the energetic mass behind all things chose this day to look upon earth and scream “deuces.”
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?
From Black Seed
The last issue of Black Seed came out a year and a half ago. Collectives come and collectives go. The need for a vigorous, engaged, and different kind of Green Anarchism remains. Issue five has, as its theme, this idea of a new start. A new beginning.
From Horizontal Hostility
Horizontal Hostility’s inaugural episode. The five hosts gather in the same city and same room (with two spectators and occasional commentators) to talk about Riseup.net’s decision to turn over information regarding two users to the FBI and their justification.
Slow and steady, we exhume the past. Here's some of our dirty work from the past year:
Sneaky Cop Haters in late 1970s St. Louis
A whimsical dash through five years of anti-cop mischief: “March 1976: The RIT wire basket factory in Rock Hill caught fire because someone wanted it to. That someone wasn’t hip to racist, ex-cop general manager Buck Ray. While Bucky was kicking back in his recliner at home earlier in the week, that someone also sent him telephone and postal threats and a drive-by shower of buckshot to convey something quite scary to this quite scary man.”
From Gods and Radicals
Not everyone in the set of organizational networks and social scenes we call “the US activist community” calls themselves revolutionary. However, those that do have a rainbow of radical organizations to join, with more shades of anarchism, socialism, and communism than most people will ever hear of. Given the radical population’s limited size, competition is fierce, both for already-converted leftists and the as-yet-uninitiated.
