Canadian anarchy, like that of George Woodcock, is not about destruction but about eliminating the entrenchment and abuse of power. In this absence, it is hoped, a better world will be founded.
Rock on this vid, after exercise, I used this to try to block the pain (well that and a pill about 130 times more powerful than morphine with significant street value). The video is based in Hawaii, Japan, and around the Northwest, with a Japanese theme. There is the anarchy of joy, of cats (nature's anarchists), of exuberance, (yes that is a monk standing in Japan), of smiling when no one expects it. I loaded the video so you can do HD, and full screen if you want.
This is Oysterband, a folk group I went down from Battleford Sk. (about iceland parallel) to Saskatoon in order to get their first CD. It had Leon Rosselson’s re-version (including some of the original 1640’s lyrics) of the Digger’s song. Leon is an anarchist as well and allowed use of his music and lyrics publishing on the anarchist label ‘FUSE!’, I follow his example here which is why photo’s and text are and can be used with minimal credit.
Regarding my post on choice and defiance, I honestly wish I could lead the kind of life which makes the true difference, spending 10 or 15 years working in the back, silently making changes. Linda and I used to do ‘Hard/Soft’ advocacy, where I would come in, and demand change, point out illegal actions, breaches of human rights and then Linda would come in with mild and moderate suggestions. They always ended up flocking to Linda to avoid what I called ‘The Mirror’. The problem is that bullies always pick someone, and if I don’t stay ‘No, not here’ or just ‘No.’ then someone else gets hurt. I welcome the idea of people acting on their convictions regardless of consequence, and still hope that if they see it, if they know it can be done, they will.
The worker who came was not physically able to carry any items (or even perhaps walk to the Y), so Linda came tonight. She said she saw the readings and tried to do the level of intensity in the workout. After, she told me that she could not, and that it was hard to believe that this is what I do, and harder, week after week. She helped me a lot when I was going into seizures and hallucinating while trying to sleep. ‘We do what is front of us.’ I guess I, as one teacher put it, ‘Hoe till the end of the row.’
