Matt Damitio's shamelessly egotistical Buddhist-Anarchist blog
offers three books for free download: Slackville Road
, a novel about homelessness in the US; Rough Living: An Urban Survival Manual
about how to survive, er, homelessness in the US, and, last but not least, the Anarchist Manifesto Project
, which offers an easy introduction to such rare philosophical delicacies as Anarcho-Taoism, primitivism, syndicalism, and green anarchism... a healthy antidote to the sense of defeated self-loathing that the corporations have generously given us all for Christmas. "Money is what the system tells us people obviously need", opines Damitio. "However, if one takes a deeper look, it becomes clear that what we really need is time. Time to enjoy a spontaneous discussion. Time to express our views and hear them critiqued. Time to hear the views of others and allow our thoughts and ideas to evolve."
