Emma Goldman is a woman of great ability and of personal magnetism, and her persuasive powers are such to make her an exceedingly dangerous woman.
— U.S. Attorney Francis Caffey, 1917

For nearly half a century, Russian emigrant Emma Goldman was the most controversial woman in America, taunting the mainstream with her fervent attacks on government, big business, and war. To the tabloids, she was “Red Emma, queen of the anarchists,” but many admired Goldman for her defense of labor rights, women’s emancipation, birth control, and free speech.

Emma Goldman a ninety-minute biography of the notorious lecturer, fearless writer, and merciless publisher, includes fresh perspectives on Goldman offered by historians Oz Frankel, Barry Pateman, and Robert Rosenstone; biographer Alice Wexler; novelist E. L. Doctorow; poet Andrei Codrescu; and playwrights Tony Kushner and Martin Duberman.

Set in a detention camp in an America of the dystopian past, Punishment Park’s pseudo-documentary style places a British film crew amongst a group of young students and minor dissidents who have opted to spend three days in “Bear Mountain Punishment Park”. The detainees, rather than accept lengthy jail sentences for their “crimes”, gamble their freedom on an attempt to reach an American flag — on foot and without water – through the searing heat of the desert. The pursuit of Group 637 a lethal game of cat-and-mouse with a squad of heavily armed police and National Guardsmen is contrasted with the corrupt trial of Group 638 by a quasi-judicial tribunal.

La lucha sigue! Tabling at a Dallas art show success for local anarchists

Under the cover of night local artists, poets, musicians and anarchists converged at local Xican@ community Center The Meet Shop OC to celebrate our collective rebellion thumbing our noses at the City of Dallas’ art-hating, party-crashing fire marshal (Who’s office has been battling the cities artists for several months).

Members of Ft. Worth’s Black Cat Collective and Dallas’ Emma Goldman Book Club tabled and gave away dozens of Pyramid of Capitalism posters as well as Fuck the Police posters inviting others to the next meeting.

The anarchists were joined by other parties interested in the liberation of the working class. We understand that liberation will only come through the education, organization and agitation of the working class.

Pokémon Go offers a rare glimpse of an equitable society

A Haltom City teenager witnessed a fire of playground equipment at a school construction site while playing the Pokémon Go free-to-play mobile game. Other players have aided in the arrest of an assault suspect or built community spirit with a group sing-along of the game’s theme song.

The game’s outreach effects are just a sample of what an equitable society that prioritized people’s autonomy over their homes and workspaces would look like. Neighbors would likely need fewer work hours to secure a level of material comfort, leaving more opportunity for community building outside their homes, like the way Pokémon Go players are doing.

When social welfare is outside the reign of police powers and the necessity of wage labor, people have space to build their own alternative associations, and the perpetuation of those associations make coercive institutions even less relevant.
