Anarchy Bang: Introducing Episode 48 – Conflict

From Anarchy Bang

This is the end. Not the end of talking, of course, but the end of this particular project of trying to talk at and with people. Especially about anarchism. Especially with phones. But mostly the project exceeded the format and the audience and excitement build as much as we could have reasonable expected given how niche our project was. This was particularly funny when we got callers who had no idea what anarchism is.

Colonization and Revolt: E. Ornelas on the Radical Potentials of LeGuin’s “The Word for World is Forest”

Colonization and Revolt: E. Ornelas on the Radical Potentials of LeGuin’s “The Word for World is Forest”

From The Final Straw Radio

This week we are pleased to present a paper given at the 2019 north american anarchist studies network that took place this year in Atlanta Georgia by e ornelas who presents a thoroughly de-colonial reading of Ursula K. LeGuin’s novel The Word for World is Forest. The paper is entitled “If You Wait, It Is We That Will be Burned: Exploring Violence and Resistance in Ursula LeGuins The Word for World is Forest”. You can find the full text of this book up at the anarchist library. This book of LeGuin’s was written in the early 1970s and was first published as part of the anthology “Again, Dangerous Visions” and subsequently published as a separate novella as part of LeGuin’s Hainish Cycle, to be read in a loose trilogy with her other novels “The Dispossessed” and “Left Hand of Darkness”. As e ornelas states in their paper, this novella is not among LeGuin’s most popular but carries very strong anti-colonial and anti-militaristic overtones which was in part a reaction to the invasion of Vietnam by US imperialist forces, also called the Resistance War Against America, which occurred from 1955-1975 and whose traumas and repercussions can be felt and seen to this day.

Anarchy Bang: Episode 47 - Family, Holidays and was it ok to enjoy Thursday's meal?

From Anarchy Bang

Is it our responsibility to be(come) new people, without families, as we create and unleash anarchy upon the world? This episode is about family, holidays, and our role in both.

Holidays in general are most interesting as a) Times of disconnection between expectation (warm homes, comforting families, supportive and/or steady friends, etc) and reality (frequently no or toxic family and/or friends, no money, no time off, etc). and b) Coming together with the people who we do want to share things with, in spite of the cultural expectations rather than because of them (Jews going to Chinese restaurants on Christmas, to name a non anarchist example).
