Blossoms of an Aborted Revolution

Original analysis by Malaginoo.

Let us not mince our words. The EDSA Revolution has failed.

If you look around at the state of society in our archipelago, you can see clear parallels to the horrors of 1972. A dictator, with the military and police in the palm of his hand, supported by sycophants blindly loyal to his person and by local and foreign capitalist interests, brutally murdering and terrorizing the poor, and the dissidents who fight for them.

It’s as if we never woke up from the nightmare.

So anarchy’s all about doing whatever the hell we want, right?

The Mind is a Battlefield too

A note from Coyote Bob.

How much of our negative self-talk is based on false ideals foisted upon us by Capitalism? Last night I caught a friend (who shall remain anonymous) using negative statements about themselves based on not having the “right” job, or living situation, or socioeconomic status. My friend is sort of an anarchist chaote type and regularly posts anti-capitalist stuff. But their self-talk was full of capitalist ideas of personal worth. It saddened me and I tried to do my best to snap them out of that kind of thinking.
