I wanna be anarchy
I stopped by the Anarchist Book Fair this afternoon to witness for myself the anarcho-communist crowd engaging in good ol’ capitalism. The vendors inside the fair building are doing a swift business, with a lesser amount spilling out into the blanket sales in the courtyard.
Judging by the how-to books on incendiary devices, and slogans such as “My heroes have always killed cowboys”, destruction style tactics have not gone out of style. Followers of Che, Chomsky, and various “liberation fronts” are well represented here.
Gandhian anarcho-capitalists such as myself found few commonalities within this lot. Just the same, I dropped a handful of Free State Project flyers and stickers on the orphan propaganda table. Maybe one or two of them will eventually come around.
If you didn’t get your fix of revolutionary angst, there is more to be had tomorrow, from the BASTARDs in Berkeley. It runs from 10 am to 5 pm, at the UC Berkeley Dwinelle Hall.
