Breaking up the old world: On prison uprisings and self-emancipation.


The whole system should be condemned. The whole system gotta go. There can be no 'advising' the state. Ordinary people have to arrive on their own authority and establish their own self-government and hold the reins of society, if we are going to have a new society based on the principles of mutual aid and cooperation, and not greed and exploitation.
