Krist reflects on Seattle WTO protests, 9/11 and their affect on civil liberties

In his latest blog post, Krist reflects on the anarchist pamphlet You Can’t Blow Up A Social Relationship published in 1979 that notes violence and social disobedience only invites authorities to constrict civil liberties.  In the pamphlet it is evident that meaningful work, through association & peaceful collaboration is a greater tool for social/cultural change than violence.  Specifically, Krist identifies and elaborates on two events that exemplify the teachings from the pamphlet:  the 1999 Seattle WTO protests and 9/11.
