Nobody likes to talk about Anarchism these days, and people who use its lexicon are usually buried in the media, as the recent Occupy movement was. It's an immediate red-flag, and I know I intentionally avoid using words like "revolution" and even calling Anarchism by its name because I think people will just shut off and stop listening to me if I say them. I find this sad, and I'm sadder still that I self-censor in this way, because there are important things to say, that I care dearly about, which use these words.
What I mean to say is that I really appreciate both the content of Andy's posts and how he chose to write them. it makes me feel a little braver, a little more comfortable with something that is part of who I am and what I believe, and safer bringing it up in public.
You can find the introduction here and the first part here.
And for something fun and related, here's some Chumbawamba!
