an anarchist journal of dangerous living

Capitalism presents us with two paths to defeat:

Either to accommodate ourselves to every injustice

Tasking each imposition lying down

As if we could sleep on a bed of nails,

Or else to throw ourselves away

In useless gestures of isolated defiance-

To take arms, as they say, against a sea of troubles,

Not so much to end them

As to be done with our miserable existence.

Hardest of all

Is to fight where we stand, for ourselves and togethor

As if we might even triumph:

Not to die fighting, but to live that way--

Courageously, graciously, joyously.
