Hosted by Rydra, Squee, and Kelpsea. We discuss our day at the East Bay Anarchist Bookfair in Oakland, CA. We discuss tabling and presentations on mass shootings, self care for the damned, post-modernity, rojava, spiritual anarchy, and more. What the fuck is nihilism? Are we nihilists? Can you be a nihilist? Is self care destruction? Is destruction art? Is art inherently irrational? Rydra and Squee finally get into a disagreement, it is over Rydra making claims to being ahistorical and Squee says context matters!
0:00 We have business cards, we say hi to Kelpsea. Rydra did 30 minutescof assembly line work with star wars legos. We have new T- shirts and we have been releasing audiobooks, so check them out and record some
anarchist theory, fiction, communiques, whatever, and send it to us.
4:25 Rojava talk discussion
5:30 Discussion of the mass shooting talk from the East Bay Anarchist Bookfair: rhetoric behind the shootings, anti-society, anti-civilization?, what is the relevance of these(if any) to the anarchist project. It seems like anarchists do not enjoy children being shot. How does justice play into all of this? Why are anarchists outraged when people cops aren’t convicted. There seems to be a strong/loose relation between nihilist and anti-social anarchist ideas and some of the ideas espoused by some of the mass shooters, does this matter?
14:12 Discussion of “Self Care for the Damned”: Is embracing immorality not just another way to live morally? Squee attends despite a past history of violence and attack by the presenters. He made it through unscathed. 19:36 are we nihilists? What does that even mean? What does sexual perversion have to do with this? Rydra explains with help from Sam Delany
23:00 Aesthetics are apparently the most important and honest thing there is, so says Rydra. What do we want to see, smell, hear, and taste, in our lives.
25:00 an argument against linear time! It doesn’t exist?! Anarchy is now, in the moment? or is it?
marketing, Rydra understands this as who can read the matrix before. Is money power? Rydra argues power is power, clearly a well thought out argument!
