Anarchism is not only a stateless society but also a harmonized society that exposes man to the stimuli provided by both agrarian and urban life, to physical activity and mental activity, to unrepressed sensuality and self-directed spirituality, to communal solidarity and individual development, to regional uniqueness and worldwide brotherhood, to spontaneity and self-discipline, to the elimination of toil and the promotion of craftsmanship.

Murray Bookchin, Ecology and Revolutionary Thought  (via fyeahmurraybookchin)

I should clarify: when I talk about stop voting, how elections are a joke, how your voice is literally “statistically non-significant,” I am really talking about all elections at the Federal level; Congress and the Presidency.
By all means, vote for your local school board, vote in your mayoral election. The whole point of advocating non-voting behavior is to stress, above all else, action at the most local levels. That is grassroots activism. That is how you effect any meaningful and lasting change.
But for the love of God, please stop pretending that you have any impact on U.S. domestic and foreign policy by casting a ballot in federal elections.

Sept 9:  #Revolution starts with one person standing up and saying “No more!”.
Live your life in such a way that government is rendered utterly useless.

wunderschonen:

Be my president, please.

Translation in random order:
She’s not an old white guy - I love different people. I will blindly follow her.
I’m too weak to process my own way in life - please tell me what to do.
I only care about fitting in while attempting to be different - please make laws that have nothing to do with me, but will forever affect me and my children.
I love to drink to - she will make a great president because Pinto Noir!
Why the fuck anyone wants someone to rule over them is just beyond my scope of understanding at this point.
But at least promise me if she buys wins the election, we can call her the Cunt-In-Chief.

Diana

Most of you that follow me know I’m an Anarchist.  That means I also don’t believe in things like the royal family, or any sort of Monarchy.

The thing with Diana is that she never really liked being a Princess.  They really treated her badly.  She came from an aristocrat family, but it was her adult life that I enjoyed.  Once she got away from Chuck and the family, she focused on her kids, and really put HIV/AIDS, landmines and more, on the public map in a different way.  She had some good sense to use her celebrity (meaning not movie star, but rather famous for being known) for something good in the world. 

It was a big deal that people like Michael Jackson, or Diana Spencer, or Liz Taylor, were going to hospitals in the 90s, and actually touching HIV and AIDS patients.  There was still so much ignorant stigma around people living with HIV & AIDS, that they were treated like quarantined, caged animals.  It was a stupid notion, and I partly blame Ronald Reagan for ignoring it for so long, and creating a sense of “out of sight, out of mind” among people.  I mean my god, if the president doesn’t acknowledge it, why should I?  It wasn’t until his 2nd term was almost over that he even mentioned HIV & AIDS in the public.  (Of course by the end of his miserable life, he didn’t even remember he was president, most likely.)

I’m glad Diana, and whoever else with the social clout to get eyes on a disease, did what she did.  For that, I can forgive her being a royal the first few years of her adult life.

Footnote:  I find that most people today still don’t know all the ways (there’s only 4) that HIV can be transmitted.  ‘Murrica! 

Home of the spied upon, land of the ignorant.
