Punk Politics #69

Way too often in the underground there’s questions going around about whether or not Anarchism is the answer to societal ills. Being that Anarchism is the only moral and responsible answer to the boots on our necks the questions are of economics and how to achieve the goal. There are a few economic options. There’s anarcho syndicalism which is essentially socialist anarchism as the workers run production and all capital is shared.

On the white washing of revolutionaries to declaw their message and meaning. Time to dispel these white lies. To talk about 2 specifically that mainstream culture watered down and fed us false idols of. Martin Luther King who we are taught is just this peaceful minister and “I have a dream” is the whole of his gospel.

Maty’s Corner #13

Maty’s Corner #13 An Open Letter to Christians and the LGBT Community. Christians; I respect and defend your right to refuse service to whomever you wish. But it is not following Christ to not provide services to someone based on sexual orientation. Jesus was the savior of gays, whores and criminals.

Stop refusing to be good people! Also, remember free will, them getting married … Continue reading Maty’s Corner #13
