From an indymedia site:
"Pacifism alone appears obsolete in the face of tyranny. Yet what if pacifism is but only one form of nonviolence in a spectrum limited only by our imagination? The author looks at one scenario sure to rock your world! (note: this article has been intentionally kept lacking in the creativity the author *could easily* launch off into)
(inspired in part by the art of Eric Drooker)
While the industrially-stuck imaginations of seemingly most "demonstrators" and others seeking to 'speak truth to terrorism called "power" are off doing the same old thing, let's say we care enough to be waiting nearby, ready to spring into our radicalized desires at a most crucial time.
"Let's say that the soldiers called police are on the brink of their usual orders--to smash heads and spray their peppers, WHEN SUDDENLY a terrific NOISE turns all attentions in various directions (NOISE bouncing off buildings or whathaveyou).
"The NOISE is pure, deafening NOISE reflecting our intensities too long held secret. (more...)
From FirstNations.com, see easy_target's first post and others:
"...So here's the vision i'm taking and running with: a spanarchy of ways of being and doing which realizes the value of consciousness about formal and so-called 'elite' systems and the ways those systems have a way of tooling all who 'submit'. All arting ourselves, whenever we feel like it, towards realizing the value of being RADICALLY EXCELLENT with each other and what i call the crucial arts (not the martial arts). "And when someone chooses to assume and chooses to take things personally (as has happened in my experience before), i "hope" to find ways to art that person and their beliefs so that they become what "Little John" was to "Robin Hood". "And if i can inspire a few others, maybe we can work/play as a team to artfully intervene, mess with the mind-set of the alienated (whether intensely violent or not), derail them from such hysteria, and seek to radically bridge with the beautiful human that they are within their fortressed mind-set and armored heart."

From anti-politics.net's forum:
"How about an idea of a way to do our radicalized desires called spanarchy? Beyond anarchy because anarchist imagination appears so limiting (at least to this longtime observer). And beyond panarchy because spanarchy doesn't rely on already-established forms of government or non-governments (and doesn't confine people automatically to such). "Spanarchy is a bridging of every way that its participants dare to imagine; it is a way of realizing the value of bridges with fellow human beings, no matter which kind of community they've been enculturated into. "Spanarchy is closer to post-left anarchy than anything else I know of. But perhaps even more radical. "Spanarchy is made up of ways known, partly known, and not yet known, or not even dreamed up yet, as well as those considered, in our backwards era, to be "completely nutty" and "not useful". "All these ways *allowed* to co-exist, even *encouraged* to exist (*!!!*), in the context of a human community realizing the value of *protection via strategies of enrichment* instead of restriction." (more...)
"All ways have excellence to teach. What are they? What if we thought along lines of commonality rather than difference? We are not permitted to see similarities, even genius in some groups, particularly those being demonized at this time; why? Spanarchy sees the value of making radicalized bridges to all ways of being and believing. The most extreme are not left out (but due to legal reasons, each of us make our decisions how far we dare go), but are listened to (particularly with the knowledge that such groups have not been allowed to be heard in any meaningful way). Spanarchy is also an always-in-process method of visualizing and envisioning radical renditions of sanity and mutually beneficial outcomes. Doomed from the start, surely, but an ideah whose time has perhaps come." (more...)
