Ammon Hennacy’s One Man Revolution

David Gross writes:

Your readers might be interested in knowing that Ammon Hennacy’s autobiography has just been released as a free (as in speech and as in beer) ebook.

Hennacy was a Christian anarchist, and the most walk-the-talk radical I can think of. He did time during World War I for distributing anti-conscription propaganda, then spent 9 months in the hole for organizing a prison strike. He quit his job and started working day labor when income tax withholding was introduced so the government wouldn’t get a dime from him. And he operated Catholic Worker houses of hospitality — homeless shelters that never accepted a dime of government money.

He did more than any author outside of Thoreau to convince me to get off my ass and get my life in alignment with my principles. You don’t have to be a Christian (I’m not) to appreciate his outlook.

Thanks for the heads-up, David. And for all the work you’ve done at and The Picket Line on culture jamming and legal tax resistance.
