In this segment of my discussion with gonzo journalist, conjurer, and political theorist Dr. Bones, we discuss the recent uptick of far right violence over the past several weeks, and fit the global rise of far right violence within the larger ecological crisis currently underway on our planet. What role can mutual aid and militant organizing play in adapting to the rapidly disintegrating life systems of the planet, in particular as societies around the globe move toward more regressive, oppressive, and violent political ideologies and organizations in the face of these massive changes currently underway?
Dr. Bones is a gonzo journalist, political theorist, and conjurer who believes “true individuality can only flourish when the means of existence are shared by all.” A Florida native and Hoodoo practitioner, he summons pure vitriol, straight narrative, and sorcerous wisdom into a potent blend of poltergasmic politics and gonzo journalism. Bones is the author of ‘Curse Your Boss, Hex the State, Take Back the World,’ the co-host of the The Guillotine podcast, and regularly writes for Gods & Radicals Press — a site of beautiful resistance.
