Introduction to Spiritual Anarchism

Note: We will be doing a short series of posts about pertinent themes in the upcoming books, starting with Anarchism as it pertains to spirituality. It plays a major part in “The Peasant and the King,” though the A word isn’t mentioned once.

As an intro, here is a spoken word piece by the great folk musician and labor agitator Utah Phillips, set to music by Ani diFranco, about the Catholic anarchist Ammon Hennacy, who was a mentor to Phillips and a much admired hero of mine.

“Force is the weapon of the weak.” — Ammon Hennacy
