Registration is probably the most stressful time leading up to the semester. There’s that dread with starting over again after having been away for so long. The stress in hoping you get the class with the teacher who has a 4.8 rating or from wanting to be in a class with your best friend. The fact that you might have to deal with an intense course load doesn’t help…

Radical Biographies: Murray Bookchin and the Anarchist’s Nature

Murray Bookchin would have been a gadfly had he not trilled the notes of beauty and imagination. The philosopher was raised in a different society. Political discussion was public discussion, frequently done at the feet of the local candy store. If the weather was nice, one could go hear the daily preachings of radicals at street corners.

An Argument Over Dinner

Terror is in the moments where hope becomes knowledge despite any underlying understanding of the inevitable, and then it is in that instant when our very human lack of knowledge is understood. This is horror. It accounts for the countless less obvious terrors of our existence… The party that was gathered for the reading of the will was stuffed into a hot room. On fabric chairs they listened to a letter:   “I’m afraid I will have talked a lot and left so much unsaid. Things go unshared, even after…
