Shaking Uncontrollably: Less Talk, More Rock, Under God

Liam | I checked the news just before sitting down to write the intro for this week’s edition of “Shaking Uncontrollably” and the top story is that Pakistan’s President Pervez Musharraf said that the US threatened to bomb his country “back to the Stone Age” after 9-11 if he didn’t help America’s War on Terror. Yawn. Of course we did. We should change the national motto from “One nation under God” to “Less talk, more rock! (Under God). I’ve seen professional wrestlers with more tact. more...  0 Comments

Act Now: Federal Legislation Labels Activism 'Terrorism'

Animal Rights | The Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act is currently pending in Congress, and industry groups are doing their best to push it through quickly and with little public scrutiny, Patriot Act style, before Fall recess.
Please act now to make sure that the War on Terrorism, and the tragedy of 9/11, isn’t used to push a political agenda and silence dissent.

'This is Forever': From Inquiry to Refusal ~ A Discussion Series @ Bluestockings - FALL SChEDULE

the kids | This is Forever’ – this is for the future. What we will in the present cracks open the actually-existing to unleash potentials for the yet-to-come. What we affirm now will return to us, accumulating a set of powers and virtues into a body capable of refusing command and of claiming its own irreversible destiny. This is an inquiry into the current composition of political movements and struggle, which seeks to understand acts of refusal that are taking place on the terrain of everyday life and on the level of planetary antagonisms. This is the attempt to theorize from these positions toward new ways of life, and new ways of organizing society.
