Over on the Infoshop News post about Joseph Stack, there’s a raging debate about whether or not “we” as anarchists should support this action. I guess I’m not really seeing it in those terms. I’m seeing it as an event that happened, perhaps like an earthquake or something. I don’t support earthquakes, and I’m not anti-earthquake. They are events that occur. People feel screwed by the system and end up wingnutting out. In this case, the person got into their plane and crashed it into an IRS building. I still haven’t heard a death count, but it looks like at least two (one potentially being Stack himself?).
It is, however, heartwarming to read in those comments more than a few people pointing out the absurdity of anarchists embracing random violence.
