"Better stop short than fill to the brim.
Oversharpen the blade, & the edge will soon blunt.
Amass a store of gold & jade, & no one can protect it.
Claim wealth & titles, & disaster will follow.
Retire when the work is done.
This is the way of heaven."

      — Tao Te Ching by Lao Tsu

J.G. BALLARD
British distopian novelist of bleak too-late-capitalist futures.


Austria: ST. LEOPOLD'S DAY marks the beginning of new wine season with drinking & festivities.

FESTIVAL OF TOTAL SUBMISSION.

"Given the unique opportunity & the world-upside-down symbolism associated with carnival, it is hardly surprising that it would frequently spill over its ritual banks into violent conflict. & if one were, in fact, planning a rebellion or protest, the legitimate cover of anonymous assembly provided by carnival might suggest itself as a likely venue."

James C Scott, Hidden Transcripts: Domination & the Arts of Resistance



INTERNATIONAL DAY OF THE INDIAN. Declared by World Council of Indigenous Peoples in 1997.





791 -- Mayan King Chan-muwan dedicates Temple I at Bonampak.


1492 -- Christopher Columbus notes first recorded reference to tobacco. E Rodrigo de Jerez becomes the first recorded European smoker, a "devilish" habit that later gets him imprisoned by the Inquisition. Second-Hand Smokers, Beware!

Recent studies indicate that this reference was in fact code, designating his real motive for sailing into the new world: finding a "hip" tobacconist. The treasure he hoped to find was not gold (for which, if Indians didn't bring him, he had their arms chopped off) or spices, but "alcapulco gold."

Il prend part également au développement des coopératives à Dijon puis à Saint-Claude (dans le Jura). Influencé par les idées de Proudhon, de Bakounine et de Benoît Malon, il se revendique d'un "socialisme intégral" enpreint des idées libertaires qui avaient présidées au sein de la "Fédération Jurassienne." Il participe ensuite à la création de la "Fédération (régionale) de l'Est" et se montre un actif propagandiste; "socialiste possibiliste" partisan de Jean Allemane (qui s'écarte des idées anarchistes par sa participation aux éléctions). En 1894, Marpaux se montre un ardent dreyfusard. En mai 1896, il est élu à la municipalité de Dijon; en tant que premier adjoint au maire, il est associé à de nombreuses réalisations sociales : caisse de chômage, maison de retraite, assistance médicale gratuite, cantines scolaires (gratuites pour les plus pauvres) etc. Au congrès socialiste de Paris en 1899, il s'élève contre le sectarisme et se prononce pour un fédéralisme communal. " Vous voulez que l'individu soit libre dans la commune libre, vous voulez que l'Etat ne soit que l'ensemble des communes fédérées, eh bien! sachons faire dans notre parti ce que nous voulons appliquer au gouvernement." Après la défaite municipale de 1900, il quitte Dijon pour diriger une imprimerie coopérative dans l'Ain. Malade, il poursuivra ensuite son militantisme au sein de la SFIO jusqu'à sa mort le 6 mai 1934. Il est l'auteur de nombreux articles dans la presse socialiste et de divers ouvrages et brochures. After the municipal defeat of 1900, it leaves Dijon to direct a co-operative printing works in Ain. Patient, it will continue then his militancy within the SFIO until his death on May 6, 1934.

Long before the book burnings of 1933, Toller’s works suffered political repression. Toller was also, of course, one of those who played a crucial role during the Spartakist revolt in the years 1918 - 1920, as did B.Traven, Gustav Landauer, etc.

Impulsée par Pierre Besnard, la création de cette nouvelle organisation de sensiblitité libertaire et ouvertement anarcho-syndicaliste était devenue nécessaire après la main mise des communistes staliniens sur la C.G.T.U. La C.G.T.- S.R adhère à son tour à l'A.I.T (anti-autoritaire) créée à Berlin en 1922.

"Ils ont un drapeau noir
en berne sur l'Espoir
Et la mélancolie
pour traîner dans la vie
Des couteaux pour trancher
le pain de l'amitié
Et des armes rouillées
pour ne pas oublier...

Léo Ferré, extrait de la chanson "Les anarchistes"


http://www.ephemanar.net/novembre15.html Malgré une forte détermination de ses militants et en premier lieu de Pierre Besnard, elle restera une petite organisation (de nombreux libertaires refusant une nouvelle division). Elle aura pourtant, à travers son journal "Le Combat syndicaliste," une analyse clairvoyante de la révolution espagnole, à qui elle apportera aide et solidarité.


Crash
1930 -- Author J. G. Ballard crashes out, in Shanghai, China.
J.G. Ballard

At the forefront of modern British fiction writing for over three decades, Susan Sontag refers to him as "one of the most important, intelligent voices in contemporary fiction."

His first book was The Drowned World, in 1961. His acclaimed 1984 novel Empire of the Sun was based on his prison experience under the Japanese during WWII.

As the owner of Crash's distributor Fine Line Features, Ted Turner attempted to block Crash (the film based on his book) being released in the States at all, & only backed down when the press caught wind of his behind-the-scenes manoeuvres. (For the complete story, check out the Wired News report.)

1936 -- Spain: Today 1,800 militiamen from the best of the Durruti Column enter into combat at University City (Madrid). Durutti poster; source images.anarchosyndicalism.net

Buenaventura Durruti was called to the defense of Madrid, but had refused to leave the Aragon front. Later he was persuaded as his presence would lend moral support to the fighters. The combat & the bombings were terrifying. Madrid was the first civilized city in the world subjected to a fascist attack as a prelude to WWII. Franco initiated the attack he thought would be the final one. At University City combat was hand to hand.

By the 18th only 700 of the 1800 anarchist militiamen remained. On the 19th Durruti was told some militiamen were deserting positions as they had been without eating or sleeping for five days. Durruti went by car to the Clinic Hospital & on the way stopped to persuade some militiamen to return to their positions. As he got back in the car he was mortally wounded by a shot to the chest. He died at dawn on November 20.

Whose the Biggest Prick
2000 --

WASHINGTON D.C. - Following an emergency meeting
Wednesday morning, Congress unanimously voted to excise
Florida from the United States of America.

The move was a reaction to the confusion & irregularities in
the state's voting numbers that have totally disrupted the 2000
Presidential election.

"We're all pretty much sick of Florida," said Representative
Barney Frank. "They've been a constant embarrassment for
too long now."


In a speech on the Senate floor, Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy commented that the loss of Florida's sizable elderly population will free up billions of dollars in social security funds. "These are valuable funds which can now be redirected toward national defense," said the Senator to roaring applause.

Vote Nobody: Make community, not government! As a result of the Florida screw-up, the House & Senate decreed a new election will take place in early December. This time, ballots in each state will be tabulated by robots, said Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert.

"Remember," said he, "every vote counts, especially if it's counted by robots."

Dynamiting will begin along the Florida border next Wednesday, after which the state will be completely geographically separated from the United States.

"After that, they're on their own," said Hastert. "I hope they sink."
