EXPERIENCE COUNTER-CULTURE ARTIFACTS
THE ANARCHIST COOKBOOK
Here is 00individual’s personal original First Edition 1971 copy of THE ANARCHIST COOKBOOK. This was as popular as the Whole Earth Catalog among the Counter-Culture.
So as not to assign a negative connotation to the word “anarchy”, remember that anarchy simply rejects being ruled by a hierarchy.
The Cookbook was packed full of subversive lethal and non-lethal tactics and information; this was really only for serious revolutionaries “in the field” – but still provided a lot of advance knowledge of home-made tactics if needed. Admittedly, Chapter One: DRUGS was of most interest and of practical use.
The fact that this book was even published with the intent that there would be actual incidents when drastic measures would have to be taken, speaks volumes on the social-injustice and outright criminal climate created of and by every authority figure from President Nixon’s criminal acts, all the way down to the daily unjustified brutality by Cops.
The times were weird; horrific events one day and sublime trips the next. People were extremely angry and frustrated and there were an assured many who took this book to heart, and society labeled them Radicals. These Radicals all had the same initial drive; to prove or bring up an important critical point of injustice and rectify it. That definition of a Radical’s cause is what Freedom and the birth of the United States was built on; Radicals, Revolutionaries, Freedom-Fighting History-Influencers,
For most Tribes, Radicals were few, and generally they splintered-off to more active groups, this included the political intelligentsia. 00individual was passionate too, only he expressed it in a more out-of-the-line-of-fire sort of way through doing his part by being a Psychonaut Representative for Responsible Heads Everywhere.
As one can see from the dog-eared pages, it was an ongoing source for conversation as it was generally left out in the open as a “Counter-Culture Coffee Table Book”. Vive La Revolution!
“Archaeological Weed” copyright 2016 00individual TLL
Here is a relic from 1973; a glass Ball Mason Jar with the original sticker that was adhered to Pink Floyd’s Dark Side Of The Moon album cellophane wrap. 00individual removed the sticker and placed it on the hermetically-sealed jar to forever commemorate a time when his archived personal stash consisted of different choice strains of compressed Marijuana guarded by the cosmic seal of PF DSOTM!
This jar created a visible timeline of Marijuana acquisition that served much like archaeological strata in the ground – an artifact that, as each layer was smoked, revealed the past history of legendary times.
While the jar and sticker are the real artifact, the weed is digitally-applied, as alas, the archived weed slowly dwindled due to lean times, which proved the Stoner’s Adage that: “Weed will get you through times of no cash, better than cash will get you through times of no weed.”
