Do you strive for immortality? Many people who’d like to be remembered after they pass, and this goes for anarchists as well. We act with the hope of inspiring someone in the future with communiques. We dissect projects and organizations that have left this world and actions that have had their moment, memorializing them with the hope of educating future rebels. We tell stories about those who have left us and break windows in their names in the hope they won’t be forgotten, and perhaps hope our friends, children, and strangers we inspire will do the same for us.
What does life after death look like for you? How do you honor the past (people, actions, projects), and how do you want to be remembered? How do we carry the past into the future in a way that liberates rather than dominates our sense of what’s possible?
