New Midwest anarchist zine

Many of the questions raised in At Daggers Drawn are rooted in a particular context (Post 70s squat and anarchist scene). It's hard to grasp all of it unless you can understand that culture: the pressures towards armed struggle or, conversely, towards passive squatting.

On the other hand, I suggested it because it does raise many other, more basic points: on informality, decentralization, and most importantly, personal projectuality. It's important to develop shared languages, and an accessible but demanding engagement with concepts that are also wrangled with by other comrades.

All that said, I think your points are fair, and it's not like your blog will lose points if you stick to stranger things. This is a good project.

Here are a few other suggestions, though:
