A pamphlet written by Peggy Kornegger looking at feminism, anarchism and the combination of both.
“ When we say we are fighting the patriarchy, it isn’t always clear to all of us that that means fighting all hierarchy, all leadership, all government, and the very idea of authority itself. Our impulses toward collective work and small leaderless groups have been anarchistic, but in most cases we haven’t called them by that name”.

A collection of texts looking at addiction culture, links between alcohol and capitalism and straight edge from an anarcho-primitivist angle among others.

You want to create a community, but after a show everyone just goes back to their rooms and drinks themselves to death”.
