Once in a while, an event or personality becomes controversial and anarchists everywhere don their lawyer hats to get in on the action. On this site we get to witness a sample of the things anarchists have to say. It may seem like we can intuitively sort out the mess of argumentation styles, provocations, and jokes; but, the accuracy of such intuitions is less than satisfying upon inspection. Is this anarchist sincere? Is that anarchist making an attempt at humor? And is the joke good enough to transcend the realm of meanness?

I generally refuse to debate to which degree our collective future is set in stone. Placing hypothetical situations at the forefront of political thought seems foolish to me, as none of us are clairvoyant. Hypothetically, if all fossil fuels were left in the ground, and no more were burned as of tomorrow, we might have a chance of survival as a species. Hypothetically, a solar storm could knock the grid offline, saving the natural world from further extirpation. Hypothetically, the powerful could adopt humane policies to reduce human suffering during ecological and industrial collapse. We know, however, that these are sordid fantasies. They are sordid because they detract from real suffering being visited upon the natural world everyday, and the suffering of those humans to which the apocalypse is not a distant future event, or a clever metaphor.

The first thing you realize once you are released is that your eyes no longer stumble into walls, railings and dividers. They can wander and see the sky barbed wire. Also, your footsteps are no longer numbered. Twenty up to the wall of the courtyard, twenty to return to your cell.

But anyway, I feel my release is just the first victory against the fear and injustice they want to impose upon us as a condition of life...
