Anarchy in the age of dinosaurs

Anarchy in the Age of Dinosaurs, " It's a 154-page, fully illustrated anarchist tactical guide. It covers everything from anarchist shanty-towns, the French Resistance in WWII, to the destruction of dinosaurs - focusing on how decentralization and DIY serve catalysts for revolution" from the Crimethinc camp. We have massive disagreements with much of it and reproduce it for reference only.

Just for reference. Wasn't this Curious George Brigade, not Crimethinc folks. How connected were they?

Is this the one where they glorify fascists in Italy as some sort of anarcho-autonomous thing, or am I thinking of some other shit part of anarchyist past?

And yeah, this was Curious George Brigade. No idea how they were associated with Crimethinc since 'its not an organization, its a name anyone can use'.

that is Days of war, nights of love. Although I guess it is possible it is in this as well. The article in Days is credited to Hakim Bey, but B claimed that Hakim Bey didn't actually write it, they just plagiarised his name as some kind of bit of wacky subversion.

Hakim Bey might not have written the article in Days of War, Nights of Love, but the part about the "Republic of Fiume" was taken from his book TAZ.

On the subject of plagiarising names, I can remember a rather amusing story of when someone published a fake Hakim Bey book in Italy, which received glowing reviews in leftist papers and magazines.

yeah, that was the article in Days. In my first draft of my CrimethInc. critique I mentioned that it was decidedly dodgy to have a paedophile involved in a group which had significant numbers of children in it. They responded by saying he wasn't associated with the group, they just put his name on something.

yeah, that was Luther Blissett, funny stuff:

Oh dear god it's like a comedy book I just keep laughing.
Crimethinc uses to be the funniest goddam organization ever, I bust my gut when I heard about the guy who ate nothing but garbage for 15 years
