From Volume 1, #1 - Why Eat the State!?

           Welcome to this, an initial issue of what we
           intend to be a weekly, four-page forum for--like
           the masthead says--anti-authoritarian political
           opinion, research, news and humor.

           While Seattle already has lots of forest-eating
           print publications, including some very good
           political ones, it doesn't have one that is
           explicitly anti-statist (by which we mean both
           governments and corporations, which these
           days are essentially the same); explicitly
           activist; or published frequently enough to
           respond to breaking events, decode the news
           and publicize activist initiatives. That's what we
           wanna do. We also think being clearly biased in
           our approach is not only more honest than
           so-called "objective" corporate media, but lots
           more fun to read.

           Short, frequently published broadsheets,
           interpreting the news of the day in a way the
           newspaper barons would not, were a staple of
           the radical U.S. labor movement in the late 19th
           and early 20th centuries. They served to link
           isolated communities and provide a voice and
           soapbox for the voiceless. The "Democracy
           Wall" writings of China's student movement in
           1989 filled a similar function. On a more
           modest scale, that's what we hope to do, too:
           avoid rhetoric, make the issues of the day
           relevant to our daily lives, get the word out,
           inspire, have fun, and encourage each other to
           think for ourselves and look beyond what
           self-interested corporations and governments
           hand to us.
