Peak Oil Anarchy

Peak Oil is indisputable, inevitable and -- probably -- imminent. As the Cheap Oil era ends & oil supplies grow ever more scarce, our consumerist, earth-eating economy will go into convulsions & industrial civilization will teeter on the brink of collapse. Best be prepared! Peak Oil could herald a Golden Age of Anarchy. In Leviathan's ashes, we could create new decentralized communities of mutual aid, solidarity against oppression, & egalitarian harmony. May this be a map to the terrain ahead!

Peak Oil Anarchy Hits the Road, Dawg!

Peak Oil Anarchy is bringing Gaia's gospel on the road! First stop was the National Conference on Organized Resistance in Washington DC, where we presented a workshop on "Peak Oil Activism: Radical Sustainability, Earth Liberation and Community Solutions." Then we're rolling down to south Floridian Everglades swampland for the Earth First! Organizers Conference & Winter Rendezvous, with detours en route in the Boone/Asheville area of Appaliachia and possibly the regional Rainbow Gathering in Ocala, Florida. The mountains here in western North Carolina are beautiful! It's tragic and sad that the same can't be said elsewhere throughout Appalachia, thanks to mountain-top removal coal mining that Mountain Justice activists are fighting.

For all ye newbies who we turn on to this blog while traveling, a few introductory essays are posted first. But if ye already know all that, there are many more interesting posts below on topics such as the collapse of industrial civilization, radical post-carbon praxis, class war & disaster capitalism, "the disintegrating authority of the governing classes," & other beautiful nuggets of eco-anarchist inspiration. And, don't forget to visit the sidebar links!

We'll be away for most of February, and won't be updating this blog, unless something amazing happens like the self-immolation of Dick Cheney or George W Bush admitting that the US of Empire has an "oil addiction." Oh, wait a sec, didn't he say that in the "State of the Union" address last week? OK, in that case, if he says another truthful thing this month, then we'll update the blog!!

When we're back in Squirrel Country this March, we'll be working to help organize another PetroCollapse conference, this time in Washington DC. Watch out, Republicrapitalists, geological limits to economic growth are breathing down your reign of lies and terror! And check out the upcoming Spring issues of Earth First! Journal and Communities: Journal of Cooperative Living for a couple of kick-ass essays we wrote that they're publishing.....

Are there any other activists in the house? Post a comment & let us know what you're doing!!!
