I have no idea if Mike Antipathy still publishes this. I only got three issues in the mail but was consistently blown away by the author's big brain. I have never really studied anarchism as a political theory other than from the zines I recieved. I've always kind of gravitated toward it on a personal basis, but when it comes to voting and civic participation, I vote very liberally and kind of dig the utopian bullshit associated with socialism (and take great pride in this when it comes to environmental and human rights causes). This and other zines like, The Match, ATR, and Here be Dragons, at least gave me some exposure to the intellecutal argument for anarchism. What was cool about this zine for me was that Mike wrote about anarchism in a way that made it more touchable and real. He wrote about his life experiences, sex, food, activism etc. and explained how his personal life reflected his political values.
