small reflections on Anarchy

Hope you are well,

it’s hot here in,

my beautiful ugly,

real hot,

oh well,

’tis Summer.

I’ve had a beautiful week,

spent some time with my girl,

being with the one you love,

well,

you all know, right?

I’ve been working,

survey monkeying,

and,

I am getting back to,

my photography,

it makes me happy,

it gives a concrete,

rendering of my thoughts,

my life,

and,

in spite of all that has,

happened,

my life is good.

I have just finished reading,

At The Cafe:Conversations on Anarchism by Errico Malatesta,

wonderful book,

shows the true beauty of anarchy,

from a practical and intellectual,

viewpoint.

If you yearn to learn more about,

anarchy,

this is a great book for that,

a short yet deep read,

disputes all those ridiculous cynical arguments,

not in the least pedantic,

well worth your time,

my anarchist’s son,

recommended it,

and,

he was so right.

Who knows,

you might find yourself becoming an anarchist?

đŸ™‚

Anarchy has long had this bad wrap,

as humourless and black,

and,

yet,

my two favourite anarchists,

the great Emma,

emma-goldman

 

and my friend the anarchist,

were brilliant,

bon vivants,

colourful,

fierce,

with a love of laughter and food,

free love,

and,

a belief in and a love of humanity,

no intellectual laziness,

rigor,

always rigor,

but,

with fun,

and,

kindness.

I re-watched the PBS documentary on,

Emma,

recently,

and,

what struck me most,

is how when anarchy,

is truly,

understood,

not demonized,

by the capitalist opposition,

it is seen as what it truly is,

an ideal state,

romantic and Utopian?

Perhaps,

and,

what pray tell,

is wrong with that??

I am absorbing this book,

still,

processing,

and,

now I am reading,

well,

finishing,

The Heart Of The Matter,

and,

just starting Life and Letters of Keats,

morality, truth, romanticism,

that’s where BB is at,

right now.

Later girls,

be well,

BB
