Anarchist Guidebook

I don’t know if it’s just me or if it is the world in general…but at the moment…things seem pretty ho-hum….maybe I should be reporting that Larry Birkhead is the father of Anna Nicole’s billion dollar baby, or maybe I should be talking about the anti US protests in Iraq, the political machinations of Bush and Gonzalez, the relative merits of Obama or Hillary and the reasons why New Yorkers hated Giulliani…but I’m finding all of this pretty boring. I could tell you about dogster.com, the social networking website for spoiled dogs, I could wax amazed about high end doggie treats and healthy gourmet doggy cookbooks. I could delve into the nuts and bolts of how to cause mass destruction with a ball point pen….but instead…I think today, I will just print this short text that Lawrence has sent me….

THE ANARCHIST GUIDEBOOK by Pete Winslow
After you pay your taxes, buy all your licenses,
submit to the draft and spend 40 hours a week at the
office, you’ve still got maybe half an hour a day for
anarchy.
Some of the things you can do are
not read the newspaper
not buy any advertised product
jaywalk
play the accordian badly on street corners
write a subversive children’s book
eat something inedible like treebark erasers or
dynamite
go into a supermarket with various obscure items and
place them on the shelves
paint meat different colors
organize protest marches at classic music stations
to demand top 40 tunes
and enlist support for all candidates who campaign
in Uncle Sam costumes.
After you have more experience with anarchy
you can improvise.
