Episode 2: Potholes, Goals, Spectacle, & Portland

Our second episode! The five hosts, now dispersed around the world, talk about how almost every ideological strand of anarchism became a self-parody in their responses to a couple folks filling potholes in Portland. We score easy laughs and praise the pothole-fillers for the greatest troll in a long time. Along the way we try to engage more seriously with the ethics of infrastructure and resistance, propaganda and spectacle, a world without work, whether anarchism is about goals, and the context of the Portland anarchist scene. The main takeaway however is that Will and Sean oppose poetry and Pax opposes their faces.

pothole, you pothole
do you reinforce the civ
help white people live

pothole, you pothole
do you want to cut my wage
coopt all the rage
