In Seattle, this annual day of republic-improving protest and nihilistic rage-venting has become rote ritual, complete with entirely predictable debates on every media platform ever invented.
In that case, the traffic advisories alone aren't going to get it done.
In which case we've been ignoring the one important TRUTH, which we'd tell you except obviously we're neoliberal globalist corporatist scum and so we're hiding that TRUTH under a pile of gold coins comprising 1/1000th of our vast alt-weekly journalist riches.) Here's some of what we've learned along the way: How did May Day in Seattle became a sprawling clusterfuck of incompatible causes and ideologies?
Anyway, Brendan had a response to my criticisms, blog commenters had hundreds of feelings, May Day continues, and it remains eternally guaranteed that if you ever write about May Day, on any platform now or hereafter invented, your words will continue to be policed by people who, in the same breath, will tell you they're philosophically opposed to the very idea of one human being policing another human being.
Fuck a bunch of the anarchists...
