[W]hy now of all times publish a beginners’ manual on firearms? From the vantage point of our current plateau, it hardly feels like the time to start robbing banks, liberating prisoners, or attacking police stations. Few anarchist communities are so rooted in their neighborhood that community self-defense programs make much sense, and copwatch programs probably aren’t ready to arm themeslves any time soon either.
The reason for beginning to share firearm skills now is that the ability to conduct successful armed actions, even on a small-scale, does not emerge overnight […] In the same way that anarchists need to know carpentry and roofing and cooking skills long before they participated in radical relief efforts in New Orleans, so too will we need firearms training years in advance of the need or ability to use that training.
Nothing about MnM makes any sense. I have watched the SWAY video many times & when they greet each other they are like a married couple and she telling him to hang up his coat dinner is in 5 min. It does look like she is coming down with a cold and he looks tired. Yet, they both worked there tails off and performed a beautiful dance. What I also see is genuine love and affection that even being tired and sick cannot cover. It's in there they just need to flip the switch!
