A Kinder Gentler Anarcho-primitivism

Sending mail bombs has its place, I’m sure, but I’m not sure where that place is.  I have to admit that there is a certain satisfaction in imagining the brains of powerful heads of industry splattered across the interior of their designer office spaces.  It plays into a delicious sense of karma, a small bit of retribution for the victims of world wide corporate oppression.

The problem with blowing up corporate CEOs and other evil corporate scum is that for every one you pop there are 500 clawing up the rungs of the corporate ladder to take his or her place.  I suppose with unlimited pyrotechnic resources, you could eventually start to make a difference.  If you continually pick the leaves off a weed, the roots will eventually run out of reserve and the plant will die.  But wouldn’t it make more sense to target the roots to begin with?
