Reading for 9/29

Sorry for the late post this week! We couldn’t get a digital version of the Peter Lamborn Wilson essay we had in mind for this week, so instead let’s just do a short reading from his book Spiritual Destinations of an Anarchist. Let’s read “Spiritual Anarchist: Topics for Research” and “Anarchist Religion?”. It’s about 20 pages officially but you’ll see that the pages are real small, so it goes by quick. Book is HERE. See ya Tuesday!

Next week we’ll begin Emil Cioran’s History and Utopia. Let’s read from Eugene Thacker’s foreword all the way through the second chapter, “Russia and the Virus of Liberty”; (in other words, stopping at the chapter titled “Learning from the Tyrants”). There’s some genuinely astonishing thought on display throughout this book — looking forward to exploring it with all of you!

Reading for 9/8

Next week we’re going to take a look at Julian Langer’s book Feral Life: Meditations on Rewilding and Anarchy. Let’s read through about pg 31 or so, through the section called “History is Totalitarian”. As always, if you only have time to read part of that, or feel like looking at other parts of the book, go for it. No need for formalized, linear readings in 2020! But yeah, let’s just go through those first 31 pages or so.

Here’s Julian’s blog:
