preparty for ebab – fights and fun!

reading for 10/14

sorry this is so late!

we are taking the concept and practice of talking to people we don’t agree with, in particular leftists.

how to do it, why to do it, and when to do it.  and what the various formats that we operate within (ie communicating online, etc) allow for and discourage.

these are in chronological order, and refer to each other, so best to read them this way.





9/30/14 – Malatesta

Here are three readings by Enrico Malatesta

Here are some questions that relate to Malatesta

  • Other than jargon what is actually different about the problems faced and considered by anarchists of his generation?
  • What mistakes do we share with our forebearers that seems more obvious in reading their material than our own?
  • What can we learn about how we think about race from what anarchists in the 19th century thought?

reading for 9/16 voltairine!

my favorite chick! i was assigned to choose 2, but 3 is better. 🙂




just off the top of my head – the first article is a fantastic example of a kind of argument that people rarely choose – in which the argument takes as its subject the strongest example of problematic behavior (in this case, a happy loving marriage is what voltairine takes on, when we all know there is a preponderance of Other examples). oh, that’s not a question: um, how do we do our arguments a disservice by picking easy(er) targets? what are arguments we have (with ourselves and others) where we could choose stronger targets?

the second article raises (among other things) the question of emotion among anarchists, and what role that has. this is something that the reading group might be more comfortable with talking about (especially if the feeling is anger), but that isn’t commonly accepted behavior. why do we think emotion continues to be so challenging?

the second article points out how the u.s. already has tendencies that support anarchist thought (i think voltairine does a better job than crimethinc, but i don’t recall her being much more critical of it than CI is). debate!

reading for 9.9.14

while many of us have a tendency towards philosophy, this week we are going back to basics (well, a type of basics, anyway) and reading berkman’s ABC of anarchism.
to understand best how we got here, it is helpful to remember/learn the steps in the genealogy.
what do we still agree with? what do we emphatically disagree with (and why)? what has been borne out, what has not, and what remains to be seen?




in memory of audrey — this was the text that decided her that she was an anarchist.

reading for 8.26

two chapters from revolt and crisis in greece
full pdf is here
revolt and crisis in greece.pdf

chapters to read are 2 (urban planning and revolt); and 3 (the polis-jungle)

1. the main question here is–how does this translate to the u.s., specifically to the areas we know and live in?
the cities we are in are certainly structured differently, and of course our cultural expectations and assumptions are also different.
2. is it possible for us to recreate our environs (in the ways that specifically chapter 3 talks about)? what would that take? where would it be most likely to last/succeed? or is this something that we should even be trying for?
3. critical mass makes a brief and surprising appearance in their analysis… what about *that*?!

reading for 6.24

the reading (from lew) is from the book, The Way of Tarot, by alejandro jodorowsky, psychotherapist, author, film director, and writer of what alan moore called the best comic book ever written.

1. this reading gets us back into story telling, a common thread these days, and (as the beginning of an analysis of tarot as a psychological tool — vs a divinatory one), raises the question of the usefulness of old images/tools for changing how we think. is the change we want one that gets in touch with old ways of being (in which case do old-reminiscent images help that?), or new ways? what do new and old even mean in this scenario?

2. one reviewer on amazon talks about this book being very illuminating, but marred by outdated and limiting understandings of gender (women are receptive, men are active, etc). this is hinted at in the final paragraph of our reading.

without defending jodorowsky (which there is no need to do) is it interesting to question the basis of modern feminism? (which argues that men and women are close enough to the same that that is the best/only acceptable generalization to make about the question.) whether or not receptivity/action are the relevant roles, what do we get from considering that there may be differences that are body-based? what do we lose from that?

3. in this intro jodorowsky posits other people who changed the tarot as bastardizing it, but his changes as making it better, and cites his dedication to the process as evidence of that. does it matter that on the face of it this is contradictory (ie who is he to determine the effort/relevance of other people’s work on the tarot)? how is he referring to an original truth, and what does that mean about how he thinks people are in the world?



Jodorowsky about his twitter account:

Yes, I will have 200,000 followers. Every day it’s growing. The twitters sometime I make in English. For me it is the new literature. The new poetry is there. It’s free, you do that because you love to do that. The characters are limited and you have immediately answer. Now when I make a sentence I know 200,000 people read it. You have immediately answer! Fantastic literary communication. Philosophical, also. A lot of persons speak idiocies, no? How they go to the bathroom. It’s silly. But if you use that technique with real soul, with a desire to communicate, it’s the most important invention of our century. That’s what I believe.

june 17 14

we will be watching a video! one of the infamous adam curtis videos of legend.

we are planning on watching on hour’s worth a month, to gradually catch people up who’ve never seen them before (or have only seen them once!)…

this one will probably be the first episode of the power of nightmare, but the person bringing the videos gets to decide.
