3 September 2021

website

Venue: FORGED BOOKS ONLINE

Organiser: FORGED BOOKS

‘…it has almost become a social expectation in the fast-moving blur of this stage of modernity that we be present in a media environment that more and more becomes ‘the environment’, that we participate in the never ending conversation about nothing, and respond. The weight of blocks of information hurtling towards us like a Tetris game leaves us too little time simply to reflect on what they really mean, while the constancy of paths these interruptions can take to now reach us (being in most Western consumers back-pockets at all times) scatter our thoughts, weaken our memory, and make us tense and anxious.’

A discussion of RETURN FIRE’s text CAUGHT IN THE NET hosted by FORGED BOOKS.

The session will begin with a reading from the text: https://theanarchistlibrary.org/library/return-fire-vol-4-supplement-caught-in-the-net#toc4

No prior reading is needed.

Conversation will take place on the Jitsi platform here: https://8X8.vc/forged/books
