The Anti-Authoritarian Architecture of Dance and Rave

Dancing invokes a heightened emotional state characterized by positive feelings and infectious enthusiasm. Rarely does the urge to hurt or threaten another human result from harmoniously moving, swaying, and stepping to the rhythm and thump of a beat. Dance will therefore always be loathed by those that dwell in the chambers of power. The elite…

Ross Ulbricht’s Murder-For-Hire Charges were Fake News used to Assassinate his Character

Ross Ulbricht submitted a Petition of Certiorari to the US Supreme Court. It was denied on June 28.

To See the World in a Grain of Sand: A Short Guide to Everything MDMA

MDMA

The designer drug MDMA has caught a lot of flak from mainstream media over the years.

Anarchy and Emotion: A Heart-Based Philosophy for Transforming Society

ANARCHY AND EMOTION: A HEART-BASED PHILOSOPHY FOR TRANSFORMING SOCIETY

I study counseling psychology. I learn to use skills that help people deal with personal issues, trauma, mental issues, and stress. But saying I “help” someone is actually a misnomer.
