One of the finest anarchist scholars ever to publish ever anywhere; one of my role-models/heros when i used to do academic work.

Anyone interested in this essay will also like his 1976 classic Housing: An anarchist approach Pretty sure this is the book i cited most often in my BA thesis about squatting in the South Bronx

Also his The Child in the city (1978) is a must, one of the most influential works of social science by an anarchist.

And i should have mentioned Anarchy in action (1973) when someone asked for good books about anarchism a couple days ago.

I am so old i have actual paper copies of these books printed back when dinosaurs walked the earth.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $100.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
