The interest of people in punk was growing. And FIB, as a political culture, could see the potential of this raw music. When first punk started, they hated it. They spoke about it as an imperialistic product typical fanatical bullshit.
But suddenly they realized that the punk message was in a certain way able. Both hated cops. Both used really? It could be used to gain votes, a raw idea for Reagan, what aboufSOD playing for him? It would be fun to see these assholes doing publicity for RR. And then the circus started.
This campaign was a musical one which went on for three years. Each weekend there were about 25 gigs. Almost all of them were performed by punk bands. Sometimes there were even people at 1 gig.
These huge gigs took place in open air spaces or sport installations. All around the place ypu could find Basque flags and FIB slogans. In the meantime, small places and squats were starting an alternative to this macro shit. These places are run by people in- volved in the scene in a deep manner.
The problem with these squats or gaztetxes is the lack of money and organizafion. But there are some places like Andoain or my town. Llodio where people give the best to each other in order to create cool, friendly and really alternative spaces.
We have created a collective of local hardcore bands to promote gigs and putting out some releases. On to other subjects. The all women issue was a really great idea. If there is any radical feminist reading this, please show me the truth about life, sex, love ard music. You know, thinking is such an awful sport. Being human in- volves having doubts and being cynical.
So try to escape from your little punk world and try not to be so close-minded in your bunch of rules. You will enjoy life twice as much. Yesterday I went to a record shopiust to look around. I can give you some addresses. Write me! Speaking of records. I want to expand the zine with interviews and artwork.
It would be great if you could send me stuff to print but please try to be as much original as possible. If you did, then they have garnered more money by selling your name on the mailing lists that they sell to organizations with similar targets. I started to get glossy brocures from well established, liberal-oias magazines and investment groups. Magazines and special interest groups create more income for themselves by offering incentives, like free gifts, discounts, refunds and rebates, that will add to their mailing lis.
If you learn how these insti- tutions practice business and earn financial support then you will know how to subvert their intentions and communicate yours. Go to the library and look under subjects such as. The first two have bibliographies. The last two you will probably have to get through inter-library loan. Novels that approach tnis subject are considered science fiction. People remember much better what they have learned on their own.
He was Torcecfinto a system of two-valued orien- tation good guys vs. It would be unreasonable to expect him to view the prose- cution — or anyone supporting them as any- thing other than bad.
However t I live in a geo- E raphically isolated area within the church elf of Texas. There really is no underground within this area, but there are a lot of posers. You can imagine how difficult it is to find good music here. More on that later. I am unfamiliar with the different kinds of punk music. Now the local scene report.
The major- ity of the scene is comprised of students like myself. Of the high school students in this region, only about are involved in this fascinating subculture. But only about fifty are really into the scene. The rest are just trying to piss off their parents. A brief example of what this has lead to. About two years ago, a senior at my high school was quickly suspended because she had a mowhawkil The excuse?
Hewitt, N. You can find ROIR everywhere at stores that count. No coins or personal cheques please. All send air!!!! I'm also interested to personal-1 1 1 y trade US core old as new against Uproar's own releases. Mags and t-shirts too!! Each order comes with free stickers wow?!! Or even better, some kind of record distribution. Anything to get peoples attention long enough to see what punksters really are ana the different things they stand for.
Perhaps I can change everyones opin- ion. Readers, please comment, I need the mail to keep me occupied. It gets up to 1 02 degrees here every day and I ve got nothing better to do besides sit in front of an air conditioner listening to music that friends and I manage to smuggle into the area. That reminds me, we only nave two record stores here. I, etc. Get the idea? I found MRR while visiting my father in California. I plan to visit more frequently.
Well, when that letter was written. I wrote the letter entirely on what I had been told by some locals, without bothering to get both sides of the story and the blame for fhe whole mess was wrongly placed on Warzone.
When I wrote my original letter, it was nothing but the story I had been given by a few people who didn t have their tacts straight. The first letter was written out of anger, which was directed at the wrong party. This whole mat'ter has made me fee? I have heard rumors and tempting tidbits on anarchist communities that have existed. Beyond being just interesting, the very thought sustains my nope that there is something worth doing in my life. I am willing, in fact hoping to travel anywhere for such a community.
Further, anything along the same line could be just as perfect. Perhaps someone out there has a club committed to the ideals and music of punk. If you need help, I am the person. A emotion I feel is a little too common within the punk scene. Everybody hates everybody else. Skins and punks. Straight edge and druggies.
True, the whole ideas of punk are based on hatred, but not for itself, for the world that hasfucked usover. Unity in the scene is what we need. People banding together to fight a common enemy, the system. With constant feuding amongst the little cliques that form amongst every punk crowd, nothing ever gets accom- plished.
Look howfarthey came, and look at us. If we could get even the slightest bit of organization, coherence, we could very easily become a major force. FromLawrence was better than Athens, GA. The final blow came when the University of Kansas Board of helped with or attended "Quest for Rejects. Hey, all you Rambos! I Dear Readers, Here is the standard do it yourself MRR letter kit-adjust to suit, dear readers, and have a dead cert chance of getting your name in print!
If punk really was meant to be a united force against social indoctrinatron Their listening audience was al- ready large, but the big shots knew they coula profit even more from a dull colleae- Dop station. Play something new, for once! Well, now it is time for me to speak up for myself.
First off, let me sort of explain what has happened over the past year. Then a few months later, Tom and I tried to reform the band without Eric. Eric sued us and after months of feeding our lawyers big bucks, we settled and Eric won the rights to the name. We are recording an LP for Walkthrufyre Records soon. Thanks to anyone who report. Ben Weasel is orie of and sadly there are many the biggest hypocrites in the Chicago scene. Hmmm, something is wrong here.
Where did alj the money go? Perhaps to your information. Also since you live at home with Mommy and Daddy and have no job, how do you afford to buy your hardcore records, andtake your band on tour and into the studio so much? Louis, and your show. Hey Ben, can I start putting on shows with you? It seems to be very profitable.
Maybe then I can pay off these lawyer bills. Well, ben liketheold Clash ever hear of them? Clarendon Apt. But rest assured, we will send all orders shortly. Overseas orders, please send 2 extra dollars per item for postage. Thanks for the patience and understand- ing. Instead, I want to talk about the need to increase the flow of communication be- tween college alternative music organiza- tions and to introduce the world to my organization in the middle of Iowa.
By diverse crowd, I mean more than the usual hardcore crew and artists that show upfor anything non mainstream. I think that it would be great if the more experienced groups can send in advice or any helpful our college scenes local product, radio shows, politics, etc.
Hopefully, we can even work together on some projects to mutually benefit us as well as the whole alternative scene. Please do it soon. This will make fhem more cheaply available to people in the U. English translations would be appreciated but are not necessary. I also hope to be able to sell tapes through other non-profit organizations for better distribution. Dear Friends, Howdy. This letter is to let all of you out there in Musicland know that the Under- ground Railroad and Dry House are open again and ready to rock.
The Underground Railroad has spent years building a reputation as a fun and fair place for bands to play and it really hurts to nave some dude off the street LP) a tele- hone messing with our rep. If any of you out ere have been hurt in the confusion, I sincerely apologize.
We are not now and have never been in the business of screwing bands. Thanks for your time. I became a punk when I was 1 6 and I will stay one till I am dead. I had lived in Poland for years; 1 to 1 and 1 to 1 In 1 I was playing with the band called DENAT at Jarocin festival, so I think I know something about Poland and the punk scene over there plus I still have contact with friends-who supply me with zines, tapes and fa pi- th information.
Such a lot of shit can only come from some stupid asshole who believes that piece of zine and few independent labels mean free- dom. During the Martial Law where the fuck were you when tanks rolled on the streets of Poland?
I can tell you that I was on the streets of Warsaw getting my ass and head kicked by the fucking Zomo riot police and I am proud of it. It is nothing in comparison to the western free- dom and I am not any kind of defender of the West. Capitalism sucks the same way So- cialism does! I almost forgot, maybe you are a son of some fucking party official! How do you like that? This year Jarocin was attacked by 1 3, fans of all the styles of music.
Plus: Photos out the gazoo, th' dreaded reviews, G'ville stuff, rantings, comics, and a bunch of other punk muck Recorded in early '88 on 24 tracks, this 7 " E. And we won't even be able to hope that he croaks or gets impeached, be- cause the vice-president will be even worse. Yeah, I'm probably talking about Bush and Quayle, but it could just as easily be the other two, whatever their names were. Right now I'm pretty depressed about the political condition of this country, and a little scared, too.
I've been following politics since I was a kid in the s, and this is the worst I've ever seen it. Back in the early s when all us Catholic school kids were in love with John F. Kennedy and really believed him when he told us how America was going to hold up the light of liberty and justice for all the worla to follow, I couldn't have imagined that my country would sink so low so fast. The next guy, Lyndon B. Johnson, was no flaming liberal; he was the guy, after all, who sent naif a million troops to Vietnam.
But he still had some sense of decency, and he got all sorts of anti-poverty and civil rights programs going that might have had more success than they did if the war hadn't wrecked our economy that's when the national debt you hear the politi- cians yapping about first started getting out of control.
Goldwater, you see, was one of the most right wing candidates the Republicans had ever nominated. A lot of his nuking that's what they called it then was probably a communist. Goldwater himself was fond of saying things like we should saw off the whole east coast and let it float out to sea because of all the hoity-toity liberals who lived there.
Pretty soon Goldwater became a na- tional joke. Peor 1 showed glasses tions was undermining our national secu- rity. Time magazine took its readers on a tour of his desert compound where a solar- activated electric timer raised the American flag and played the national anthem every morning at aawn. The election wasn't even close; I think Goldwater carried maybe five states.
Goldwater, while he had screwy ideas, was fundamentally honest about what he be- ieved. Bush and Reagan among them, are such habitual liars that they probably wouldn't recognize the truth if they ever accidentally, of course ran into it.
And except fora handful of radicals and malcontents among whom I'm happy to number myselfnobody seems to care. You've got one of the most blatant imbeciles ever to occupy the office of president, who's spent eight years undermining and destroy- ing nearly everything that is good about this country, and who's about to oe replaced by an even more blatant imbecile.
Wnat do the media say about it? They suck it up. They treat these people as if they were deserving of respect, as if their nasty little scams were brilliant strokes of statesmanship, as if these mean spirited, double dealing, treacherous lowlife scumbags who have made a way of life out of systematically murdering and starving whole populations into submission somehow represent what the land of the free and the home of the brave is supposed to be about.
Hey, I've been living, right here in the USA all this time, even if California is a little out on the edge and I'm sure glad of that! Could the America I grew up in really have changed that much? Where aid these people who are running this country come from? Did someone pay off cill the newspaper reporters to stop asking questions and only write things that make the government look good? Did someone slip something into the water that turned Americans into zombies who only care about ting a good paycheck and what's on TV tonight?
Yeah, I suppose the answer is yes to all those questions. And someof you will proba- bly say, "Hey Lawrence, that's the way it's lways been, congratulations for finally noticing. When the American people aren't being bamboozled, bullied, manipulated, exploited and twisted into self- strangling knots by their government, their industry, and their communications media, they're capable of great things.
This country was founded on rebellion, and that spirit has stayed alive through most of our nistory. Now rebellion is being bred out of us. Now the issue is survival. Not just physical survival, although that's getting a lot tougher than it used to be. When I got out of high school inyou :ould go down to the local factory and get a ob that paid enough so you could make iown payment on anouse and a car and start supporting a family.
Try doing that on the jobs they're offering 18 year-olds today. But motionally and intellectually and person lly we're being constantly battered by force hat threaten to either turn us into cogs in the techno-industrial machine or simply squash us the way unruly or superfluous peasants have always been squashed when they got in the way or "progress.
Unfortunately, revolutions have a history of often creating bigger messes than the ones they started out with, and with all of the right wing gun nuts and left wing control freaks and street gangsters and petty criminals and barely functional idiots rattling around America, all armed to the teeth. In the s, as Hitler was solidifying his hold on Germany and beginning to ex- pand his influence into other countries, one of the first things he did was to round up the artists and intellectuals and political activ- ists.
Those remaining were faced with the question of whether to stay and fight to save their country, or to get out while the getting was good and save themselves. A lot of them bailed out and headed for the United States. Most who stayed didn't survive. It was dur- ing that time that Winston Churchill ob- served, 'The lights are going out all over Europe. Do I stay and lght? I just want to play loud music and write stories and grow vegetables.
Simple goals, but I'm wondering how much longer it will be pos- sible to pursue them in this country I always thought of as home. As long as I can see any hope. I'll keep raising a ruckus, or as B. Dylan once said, " stand on the shore until I start sinking. It was nasty. A team of tough men against a bunch of smiley tinsel towners! It's bad enough that someone named "Dallas" is going to manage the Yankees, but the Mets loosing to fat Tommy's butterball boys?
What a dis- grace! The world series will be as thrilling as St. Louis against Kansas City. I'll be sitting on the edge of my seat and nodding off for this one!! Fortunately, a bit of comedy picked up my spirits after the baseball disaster. It was inadvertent, on the part, of all things, a vege- tarian. Remember Mcnch Meier, the well meaning eco-frcak I wrote about last month? He told me the funniest thing I've heard in ages and now I offer it to you.
You know the classic veggie stumper. You ask them why it's better tokill hundreds of plants than tokill animals. It is a logical argument that usually stops them cold. Well, this veggie thought he came up with an answer. You see, if you eat a pound of meat you're eating sixteen pounds of dead vegetables, but if you eat vegetables directly, you only kill one pound of them. Then I laughed, LP). The "logic" of what he was saying was so twisted, it beat the old Abbot and Costello baseball routine.
Here's what was implied by what Mcnch ike a Gilman Street staged iver. Quail will get the blame. The Republicans of the late 80's will be like the Republicans of the late 20's. Inthe Democrats will take over. They'll get us into a nice foreign war to bring us out of the depression. Ana they'll stay in pounds of plants. If that pound of meat were still living, it would go on consuming plants at the rate of sixteen to one. By killing the animal that you eat, you are saving au the plants that the animal would eat had it lived.
So by Mench's logic, the MORE plants you eat actually, the more animals you killthe more plants you save. This was funny enough, but it got better when I pointed this out to Mr.
I could see farms littered with dead cows and chickens — all killed to save the grass and wheat. I could see a field of deaa pigs, lying with their throats slit to save helpless ears of corn. Rivers filled with dead fish, floating belly up, killed to save the world's algae and plankton.
Laughter ex- ploded out of me like a fart after beans. A laugh like that is just what I needed to save me from thinking about the horrors of an all- California World Series. I'm not sure if eat- ing vegetables makes you funny or it just makes you stupid — but I'm glad somebody does it. So, we've got the thrill of a stupid World Series and the thrill of stupid vegies.
If your collective hearts can take it, I want to write about a third thrill: the presidential election. I'm writing this on October There's about three weeks till Bush-day. I will vote either for Ron Paul, on the Libertarian ticket, or Gus Hall, the eternal commie candidate. Of course, I dislike commies as much as the next guy, but I figure every commie vote in the US. Bush's TV commercials almost make me want to vote for the Duke. Give me a soyburger if you want to make me gag.!
Still, it's not enough to lever a vote for the eye- brow man. I really don't care who wins because I figured out what's going to happen. When Nixon ran against McGovern, the press knew all about the Watergate stuff. Nobody be- lieved it, though. They assumed it was just election propaganda. Then, after the election, the Watergate shit hit the Woodward and Bernstein tan.
Nixon was impeached. Right now, with Americans so riled up about drugs, the same thing is going to happen to President Bush. After the election, alt this stuff about Bush approving the selling of drugs to fund the Contras is going to come out. Tcople will be outraged. Although all the facts are already known, no one believes them. Bush will impeached. It'll be President Quail by Because of the national debt and the ineptitude of Quail, the economy will crash "But what about the Supreme Court?
That is a problem. The only two good guys left on tne court are in their eighties. Presidents Bush and Quail will probably get to replace them.
But, in a way, a right-wing court may not be such a bad thing. At least it'll teach the feminists a lesson. All through America, local feminist groups have teamed up with theTV preacher right tp fight pornography. In Minneapolis LP) Indianapolis among other places, they won. OK girls, now it's time feel the prick of your actions. You worked with those guys, now see what it's like living under tnem. Now have a taste of them as they remove abortion clinics. You supported them as they passed tougher laws against prostitution and child sex.
Now suffer through their tougher laws against lesbianism and women's rights. You but- tered your bread. Now youMl have to sleep in it. Between the election and the Playoffs, this month could've been a total loss, but: Every once-in-awhile a Goddess comes a long. You know, a girl so overwhelmingly captivating that you'd disembowel your father, or suck off GG Allin just to talk to her? There's not a lot of these Goddesses; often they disappear or do stupid things like marry singers from Holland.
They are as rare as Dead Sea Scrolls and a hundred times as valuable. The girl who sings lead for them is such a God- dess. I tried to talk fo her after the set at CBGBs. They were all standing there. Unfortu- nately, she seemed to have less trouble taking her eyes off me. As a matter of fact, that was the last I saw of her for the rest of the ight. But I had my glimpse — the month was not to go thrill-less, If you see her, give her my regards.
Qh, guess there were a few other thrills— all music. I got to see some great has more space to add stuff. I suggest reader's poll, like Flipside's. Flipsides pc poll pac r' s poll, like Flipside's. Flip; was a bit off the waft, though. But I guess you already know that most people are wrong. Anybody have any other suggestions? I've tried, but I can t reach. A group ofpunks stood near the entrance to the Gilman it. Project, smoking cigarettes, drink- ing Jolt, and asking for spare change from other people hanging out.
It's all I got. Her friends. Did that surprise you? If not, you're lucky enough to have escaped your social training, or else you grew up in a different world. In our society, male is the norm and female is the exception. And we're so used to it we don't usually even notice, unless we get caught by surprise.
That first happened to me reading a psychology textbook. They had an example about some experiment, and they went on about "the subject did this" and "the subject did that" for a couple of para- graphs and then they threw in something about "she" — and for a second I didnT know who they were talking about — where did "she" come into this? Wasn't "the sub- ject" a guy? I had "him" visualized in my head without even realizing it. But they never said it was a guy.
Why would I visualize a guy? The fact is, most of us automatically assume everyone is male unless someone comes out and says they're female. Except for words like nurse, social worker, babysit- ter, secretary etc.
Doctor, lawyer, judge, politician, professor, boss, worker, slave, farmer, peasant, American, leader, friend, person, child, youth, adult, human being All those words, for most people, conjure up a male image. And most of the time we don't realize it.
But we're so usea to thinking of males as the norm we usually don't notice it at all. I think it's because guys aren't used to having to relate to women. It makes them uncomfortable or something.
We - women- are used to relating to men on stage, men on the screen, men in books, men every- where. But most guys aren't used to relating to women as role models. That's how it seems, anyway. Am I wrong? Think about the books you like, the bands you like, the movies you like I've found that I've become more and more tired of having to relate to male role models. I tend to like all-female bands more than all-male bands in genereal, just because I'm tired of seeing BO YS on stage all the time.
Most of my favorite books are written by women because I feel like I can relate better to the way women write. You can call it sexist if you want, but it's just a reaction. I'm glad I'm a woman.
I've never wanted to be a man. And despite the feminist cry of oppression, there's a lot of advantages to being a woman in our society. And I've discovered that I just can't take it anymore. I can't even read books that use the words "man" or "men" when they mean "person" or "people".
Even if I want to read them — tnere's a lot of books with important ideas that use sexist language — I can't do it. It makes me feel like someone's talking through me to other people — talking to men.
Then I could read them. In the meantime. I'm gonna have to miss out on what they're saying because I just can't bring myself to read more books about MEN. What was that word? There are many changes in life in which the hardcore com- munity concerns itself.
The purpose of this column is to recognize, discuss and criticize the changes in our lives and to hopefully show that we can change things in our lives and in the world. The topics of discussion will range from changes in the political arena, to changes in the hardcore scene, to perhaps the most difficult changes of all, changes in myself. I never wanted to hurt someone so much in my life.
Why was I in this posh, over- priced club in the first place, you ask? The answer to that, comrades, is the root of all evil in this world: boredom. I had nothing better to do. So here 1 was, more watching a crowd of semi-mohicaned, no doubt a hast- ily done job in the car, so mummy and dad- dums wouldn't see precious' weird hairdoskinny leather tied bozos bop around the floor like some type of instructional film for the Heimlich maneuver, and then I noticed him. There he was sporting a spiffy looking coiffure that was "you know kmda short on the sides, not too shortkinda long on the top," wearing a MacDonald's tee shirt, and a smug little pug-faced grin that made me think of my little cousin Georgie, I hate my little cousin Georgie.
But that's not at all why I wanted to hurt him. Sure I thought he looked a little silly, but so did my friend Amy when she dressed up as a pumpkin on Halloween, and I didn't want to hurt her. No, it was much more than looking smug and silly, it was when he would go into the crowd and jump on someone's unsuspecting back, try to knock them down, float arounain the "pit," it was more of a pothole, actuallyand then go back to his two giggling bopper friends with a look or his face like ne ruled the world, that got my goat.
And, oh, how they loved little Ronald MacDonald, that's what I named himso tough, so strong. I guess in retrospect it wasn't even the jumping around that both- ered me so much, maybe he was just high strung. I guess it was just that look of smug superiority on his face as he bashed into the rest of the crowd, that look that said, "I know who and what you are and I rule the world," that burned my butt.
So time after time I watched Ron leap at the writhing mass of yuppies, buppies, guppies, and whatever the nell else was in that mess, my anger growing uncontrollably and for no apparent reason, until finally I had to take action.
At the height of my hell-bent fury, I decided to say something. The next time Ronny went for the big plunge, I grabbed him and said, "Why the nell don't you grow up? Ron's reply, how- ever, did nothing but confirm my suspicions about him.
He puffed himself up as much as he could and said, "No, man why don't you grow up? Why don't you either join in or stay out?
I threw up my hands in dis- gust, sat down and tried to enjoy the show, all the while wondering what haa possessed me to get so angry at this boob. I sat by the door waiting for him to come by. After a few minutes, i saw Ron coming, and he saw me.
Just as I was about to begin my apology, that look re- turned. My stomach started churning and my face was flushed as that smug little piece of doo-doo said with such arrogance, "See you later, Joe. The future is a scary thing. More and more I see the signs of reversion to a gestalt civilizational environment i. In words of no more than two syllables: the Roaring T wenties have come back, so get ready to relive the past.
Some LP) I see a sine wave Stock Market with computerized insider trading that parallels the margin practices of an equally volatile market of sixty years ago. A populism that transcends the tradi- tional spectrum of political Left and Right is sweeping the nation.
This is partly in re- sponse to a government that is taking a de- cidedly anti-labor and anti-union stance. Social realistic pop art is making a comeback as Labor, unions, working class. Left and economic nationalism are again being ro- manticized. We work to party and our party- ing glorifies our work.
A great irony is this, for work is playing a greater part in the structures of our lives, what arc you? Not quite dust bowl, but wait'll next year.
The Fundamentalist and weird' sects of modern American Christianity are mov- ing to the forefront of recognition. In general, the 'New Age' is the 'Same Old Shit' repackaged for existing demographics, and many New Age philosophies ana ideologies are being incorporated into mainstream Christianity.
Hey, I got a book printed in that reads a lot like Shirley MacLaine. In the '20s we had the formation of the tennents found in the modern Pentacostal and Charismatic movements: close, personal contact with God Almighty, ecstatic nearly orgasmic salvation, miracles, healings, speaking in tongues and the like.
Of course, you'll find all that and more in Voudon, the fastest growing religion in New York and Los Angeles, but were not talking about pagans. Yean, and the end of the world is ancfwas just around the corner. That has been exas- perated by Homo Industrials' fascination with round numbers. Last time we had a millenium we responded with the Crusades. And now, a basic fact: The economy of the world, and all world governments, are the end-products of people's jobs.
Are you en- lightened yet? I'll pick up the Noble Prize in Economics one of these years. I think this puts the entire, incomprehensible thing into some kind of easily managable perspective.

The President is not the Government, the middle aged, over weight, polyesther clad slob behind the bul- let proof plastic at the unemployment office is the Government. And on most of their collective minds is the same thought: "Any day now. Pray, can anyone tell me of a depression that happened before the 17 th Century? I mean a real, large scale depression that happened for no apparent reason?
Before tnen we experienced plagues, famines and other natural disasters that certainly depressed a lot of people. And local regions like cities and duchies and principalities slipped from prominance due to shifts in power that lead to changes in trade routes, or new technolo- gies, or government debauchery.
They started to gain real political and real politik power amongst the waning and inbred aristocracies. And some Vemtian Bean Counter discovered currency speculation and the global fucking economy has been subject to the capricious fiat of power predators ever since. Post revolutionary America was funded on the 18 th Century equivalent of junk bond arbitragers who gambled the crumbling fortunes of what remained of the Spanish Hapsburgs' holdings in The Netherlands on American specie and won.
Yeah, people starved, but somebody profited. Why can't we stay in a linear mode, break out of a cyclical pattern of history and events? Nostalgia becomes the Future and that way we know what to expect, how to act, how to be firm and correct.
Our parents harp upon us, or their parents on them, about the tough times they survived and we, or they, have got to beat them in the sufferi ng sweepstakes. We're number one, mother fuckers! We'll have the biggest stock market crash, the most bank forclosurcs, the biggest starvation statistics that history has ever known! I guess, but I sure as hell don't know.
And, as always, there will be profit to be made for some. Starting with the publishers of "How to survive the next great depres- sion" books. We do see several at the end of each calendar decade, don't we? The only person who'll be richer than the synthesizer and marketer of adrenalin will be the per- Ison who applies Chaos Theory to Economics l and figures into the equation dissemination lof that information.
That's where Prechter remember him? Once he had his fifteen minutes, his predictions weren't worth a damn because everybody knew what he was talking about. Profits are way up this year, thanks to [The Drought. The entertainment biz and prosper. Verily, it is so easy to rant and complain about situations present and scenarios fu- ture, but can I offer a solution.
Okay, go read. Carol oore and Pierre-Joseph jProudhon can explain decentralization in 10, words or more, but what about putting it into effect? One cannot use the method s of the existing System to renovate or destroy the System without becoming either the new System or co-opted by the existing System.
Nor is there a new frontier open to the likes of you or me. You wanna live in outer space? Or Antartica? And be non-explotive, go for Cynicism aside, I think it is possible to carve out a niche in this world that allows a measure of individual freedom and comfort while more or less ignoring cyclical capital ism.
The mechanics would not simple, and they won't be presented here in any case, as they involve activities which could be con- strued as being illegal.
Besides which, I don t know exactly how to go about it either, but I'm willing to try and as soon as 1 do the Money Monkey being the hardest habit to kick. I'll let you know how I did it. But the basic idea is to exist between the strata of industrial society, with a variety of cottage or collective industries and alternative cur- rencies or systems of barter and local units of trade, and all covered by careful employ- ment of tactical disinformation.
I know this sounds like back to the earth h ippy crap, and it is, sorta. It won't be easy, but frontiers rarely are. Stars or an infinite uni- verse sparkled faintly alongside the moon. Crickets and bullfrogs were speaking in the distance inside a marshy web of murky riv- ers. A night owl hooted m the highest corned tree as several mice scuttled unde-I of a tall 1 tected at thebottom of the tree trunk. All was normal within the marshy terrain or was it? From out of nowhere the fog began to creep its way down upon the marsh, trailing across the full moon and slithering through the marsh weeds.
Out on the biggest of tne endless rivers inside the marsh, sat two old fishermen on a boat. They had fishing lines strung over the sides of the boat, deep down into tne depths of the murky water. They sat speaking in a soft tone about stories of catch- ing fish and stories of how the "big one" gotta away.
The eldest of the two fishermen, Mike Belittle, age sixty-five, was a gentle man when it came to fishing. But otherwise in his old age had a knack ofal ways being set in his ways. No one dared argue with Mike because his short temper always got the better of you. So everyone in the small town of Cape Bedford which stood four miles north From the marsh, let Mike have his way.
The other fisherman. Bob Griffin, age fifty- four, was every child's dream of a grandfa- ther. Bob was a good natured man, always going out of his way to make people happy and doing anything for the towns people of Cape Beafora. As mey sat telling their sto- ries that each has repeated to each other a thousand times, of course each time with one or two more fictious facts added, they sat oblivious to the blackened fog approacning.
Mike stopped at mid-sentence, moments later iust when he was uttering, "You won't be- lieve the size of the fish Fog like this is not to uncom- mon from time to time but never as bad as this during the summer season. For just a split second each of the men felt scared in their hearts but Mike began his story again as if he hadn't stopped telling it. Bob reached out to check his line as Mikes raspy voice ut- tered behind him.
Bob though began to get lost in his own train of thought and soon Mike was inaudible in Bob's ears. Bob cut off Mike, "Hey, remember when we were kids playing out here on the raft we both made ana we were both with those two dames we met back at the soda shop? Mike replied in hesitation, "Sure do Yeah I remember more clearly now, that one girl I fancied, what was her name?
Bob and Mike, frightened, both sat staring at the fog for quite sometime, both became silent, both a little scared, both perspiring on their brows Mike spoke in a low tone, ''We heard screams coming from inside the fog, those screams we thought were other kids on boats out on another river nearby.
Denied her man, their prison visits desecrated by the ever-listening guard. Pikes Peak 5, Colo. The cowards call us cowards, but with you we face the darkness, change its face. The criminals call us criminals, but with you we revive hope, put an end to crime, to prostitution, hunger.
And we give eyes, a voice, ears, a soul, to the heart of man. The racists call us anti-human, but with you we give hate its universal tomb in the city of embraces. They call us so many things. And those who say them forget, they are so stupid, that tomorrow their grandchildren will joyously fall in love with the star-filled letters of your name: revolution.

Their organs were also muti- lated. As the fishing lines began to sink below the murky water, where the hun- dreds of fishing lines had done before, they eventually got snagged on the remains of human skeletons lining the rivers floor as the hundreds of other fishing lines had done the same.
Maybe because they, tne townspeople, do not want to believe such a horrible murder could take place in their town?
Or maybe because no one wanted to believe Satanic cults are real? But Satanic cults are indeed real and murders do occur. It is amazing how man often refuses to be- lieve the impossible. He dares not question the unquestionable out of fear or simply out of his ignorance. Indeed we all must ques- tion the unquestionable to find out whether it may be true or false.
The question of Satanism is one that tends not to be asked. Rather, when the possibilities of such activ- ity arise, for instance, in Los Angeles several years ago when the case of the "night stalker" was being investigated and Satanic symbols were found beside a victim's body.
The na- tional press treated this odd aspect with sensationalism instead of seriousness. Often times, more than it should, the national press or even everyday common citizens view such activity as a ghost story or tall tale. No one actually thinks to themselves, "If indeed some of these murders are done for ritualistic purposes or carried out because of a Satanic belief?
They always find it much easier to label such an action done by a "lone nut" rather an action for a specific reason such as killing for Satanic reasons. Satanism is viewed as the excuse: A small but insignificant number of mass murderers have invoked Satanism to explain their crimes.
But the one thing you really can't figure out is to what extent it is used as an excuse Some people may actually have convinced them- selves that these executions are necessary. I don't know anybody who believes that Satan has any- thing to do with murder If a killer claims the Devil made him do it, either ne is faking or using it The matter must not be taken with a grain a salt but with seriousness to the possibility.
One of the biggest areas of abuse by the Satanic ideal is the abuse of children. This has received the most attention by all kinds f people, than any other area of Satanic nvolvement in a crime. There have been scores of cases of child abuse all over the United States being tainted with Satanism.
Generally when young children come for- ward with stories of drinking: blood and or urine, animal sacrifices, sexual abuse, eating human flesh and so on, they are not believed at first. But when serious investigation commences the findings are startling, for the unbelievable does exist. Well, it could have been made upr Butre- listically, where do two, three or even five l children get the idea to describe such activity? First of all, many of the aspects told such as drinking blood, animal sacri- fices, etc, are indeed common practices amongst some Satanic cults and lend more redibility to such a story, I think this is what mazes me the most when some psycholo- ists, police investigators, defense lawyers or cases that do go to court and so forth onclude that, "Oh, it's a child's imagination one wild " Even though almost every ictim's story is incredibly independently similar, some still remain set not to believe.
Logic would suggest a well organized atanic cult would be careful about leaving traces, keeping everything as secret as pos- sible: w — "AugustAntelope Valley, Califor- nia. A child abuse case turns bizarre when a foster mother reported that three children in her care onfided in her tales of Satanic rites involving murder and the eating of human flesh.
