Remembering Saint Max on this All Saints' Day: A spooky explanation of why I don't vote from an individualist's perspective.
Because creeds are fun: I am a Cynic, a Christian, and an Anarchist
Shit libertarians say.
As we remember Tiananmen Square today, there are some seriously neat protest movements happening on the ground in North America right now. The Quebec student strikes, Occupy Wall Street, Yo Soy 132. We will reclaim our space from capitalism square by square, park by park, street by street, house by house, mind by mind, and heart by heart. It is those clinging to their things while dwelling in their mansions who need authority and chains-of-command; those of us in the streets have no use for either.
I hate how people try to appeal to Jesus to support their own ideas of who should or should not be candidates for marriage. Jesus' teachings do not so easily lend themselves to those who would rule over their neighbors.
Bombs are good if NATO drops them; otherwise they are terrorism.

Some thoughts on the necessity of law.
My jury trial, stemming from criminal charges brought against me after being arrested at the Occupy Denver camp for peacefully sitting in the park overnight, is on Monday (April 30th). The D.A. has offered me a last-minute plea offer that would give me a very light penalty compared to what he will ask for in the likely even that I'm convicted. This is what I asked my attorney to relate to the D.A. in response.
Two headlines about UC police departments. First, the task force investigating last year's pepper spraying incident at UC Davis released its report condemning both the administration and the police department and calling the decision to use pepper spray on the peaceful students `objectively unreasonable'. Second, the EFF and UCLA reached a settlement in a case against the UC Berkeley Police Department and the FBI stemming from an illegal raid at a radical community center in August 2008. As part of the settlement the FBI and UCBPD acknowledge they broke the law and will pay $100,000 in damages.
Dear citizens of the world, you can stop killing each other in the name of safety and enslaving each other in the name of security and prosperity. You're going to die anyway. This is what I believe. Adapted from an online conversation I had recently.
Dystopian visions of future freedom are no excuse for the nation-states of today.
