identity

Lines in Sand

A compliation of three essays that explore identity, oppression, and social war within the anarchist movement.

"...Recognizing that we'll never all agree on anything, and this is good, I want to argue nonetheless that a needed common ground is an understanding and embrace of social war. I'm afraid that those who speak of oppression without acknowledging the war we are a part of, not as metaphor but as a real and current practice, will only succeed in turning a battlefield into a garden, decorating this cemetery of a society with flowers and accessibility ramps. I don't care to argue that one side or another is necessarily more correct, only that revolution becomes impossible not when we enter into the current historical era but when we start believing in civil society and stop noticing that the guns are pointed at us too."

Hoax #7: Feminisms and Change

"Hoax is intended to question how you feel about feminism in relation to different aspects of day-to-day life. In this seventh issue, we want to talk about change. We aim to explore these questions and more: What are our goals for ourselves and our communities? Which methods do we use to gauge change, and is progress ever quantifiable? In what ways do we knowingly and unknowingly showcase personal changes, and how are these changes read by others?"
