Killing king abacus anthology: a collection of writings for relations without measure

Submitted by dendrite303 on November 14, 2018

This is an anthology of the writing tied to Killing King Abacus. Killing King Abacus was started as a writing project to challenge aspects of discourse and practices within the North American anarchist scene by three individuals Leila, sasha k and Wolfi Landstreicher. One of the central challenges of this project was to think through/explore “insurrectionary anarchism” as a practice/process. This anthology spans a time between 2000-2005 covering Killing King Abacus #1 and #2; Hot Tide Bulletin which is comprised of anti-authoritarian/anti-capitalist analysis; an exchange between sasha k and Chris Dixon debating/dialoging issues of organization; the role of “activists” and “political experts”; a collection of letters and articles in other publication that where in response to or in discussion with the larger Killing King Abacus project.­
