This issue is dedicated to our dead nihilist-anarchist comrades; Ryo from the archipelago of fire named Indonesia, and Darko Mathers, our comrade from pirate island. Both of these compas made considerable contributions in their own way to the international informal anarchist network that we are part of. Insurrection is a process and an act. Sedition, subversion and provocation are our aims.
We know its possible to add to the destabilisation of the State, because right now we are doing precisely that. The methods of insurgency are open source, and available for experimentation. The State will always be vulnerable in the realm of ideas, even when it is protected by an armed guard of strong symbols, and industrial murder, because it is simply a bad idea, and one that takes too much and gives nothing back. Control systems are always parasites. A separation has emerged in anarchist discourse between the social and the political.
What this distinction really means is rarely made clear, and in a sense, such a distinction does not exist, it changes as the situation changes. For us, the term political refers to a process whereby decisions and acts (aim to) direct social relationships and organisation, and the term social denotes the body of people, their organisation, their customs and arbitration of differing opinions from which emerges a process that is political. An anti-political discourse is probably closer to our aims; against not only society but civilisation itself as it is.
