Letterpress anarchist journal The Cunningham Amendment feeds my soul. It is a transfusion of subversion, beauty and wit so perfect it makes me want to weep with joy.
This, from the latest edition, which I received through the post the other week
“All Anacrisps (sic) strive to practice a simple kindness to Others. Other is respected because the Other is Other. Periods of time are spent in voluntary simplicity in order that a return to the non-fool world can be made. During this time we stress frugal consumption, ecological awareness and periods of solitude…
We are crazy as loons to take this world seriously. The real joke is all around us. If you are not careful you can end up spending years struggling to achieve illusions you can never obtain, and on a planet that could never support the same craved for life-styles. The problem with the rat race is that even if you win, you are still a rat. Watch out! Be Prepared! If you don’t condition your soul positively there are others who will do it for you negatively”
The content and asethetic of this publication resonate with me so much. I’m off to investigate anarchism.
