Rad Geek Speaks: “Ask An Anarchist!” TOMORROW, at the Vegas Anarchist Cafe. Las Vegas, Nevada, 5 March 2009, 6:00pm

Here's a pretty old post from the blog archives of Geekery Today; it was written about 15 years ago, in 2009, on the World Wide Web.

The Vegas Anarchist Cafe is an informal meet-up for networking, building community, and doing some outreach for anarchists in Las Vegas, organized by Southern Nevada ALL and other local anarchists. The Anarchist Cafe is a place for people to meet, discuss ideas and make contacts in a low-pressure environment without a formal activist business agenda. (However, if you want to start up a group or a project that will have a formal activist business agenda, A-Cafe is a great place to meet people and get information on local groups.) We used to meet every Wednesday; in order to be able to reliably reserve a meeting room at our venue we’ve switched to meeting every Thursday, 6:00–8:00pm at the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf at Running Rebel Plaza (4550 S. Maryland Parkway) in Las Vegas, Nevada.

This week — specifically, TOMORROW, Thursday, 5 March 2009 — Anarchist Cafe will feature an event in our Free Speech Soapbox Series during the first hour of the meeting, from 6:00–7:00pm. I will be hosting a freewheeling Q&A session, called Ask An Anarchist!, which will give A-Cafers, guests, and random looky-loos the chance to fire away with any question they may have about Anarchy, Anarchism, or Anarchists. As our advertising handbill puts it:

Are you curious to learn more about Anarchy, Anarchism, or Anarchists? Have you got questions about Anarchist ideas, the history of Anarchism, how Anarchism has affected mainstream culture, Anarchist solutions to contemporary social problems, or how Anarchists believe that a free society would work without government? Want to know whether the picture of Anarchism that you’ve gotten from the mainstream culture is accurate or based on misconceptions? Want to try and stump an Anarchist? Bring all your burning questions this Thursday, and our speaker will do his best to answer any question you care to ask. Come on in and fire away!

This event is for anyone curious about the ideas of philosophical Anarchism, or interested in conversation. All are welcome to attend.

The Soapbox event will run from 6:00–7:00pm. An informal meet-up and discussion will follow from 7:00–8:00pm. If you're in the Vegas area (or even if you're not), it'd be great to see you there. If you know anyone around abouts who might be interested in a talk about Anarchism or radical labor organizing, then please do forward the announcement on to them.

    50-60 years from now, they will be viewing these ads like we view Tucker’s Liberty ones ( : ( :

    Sorry I didn’t make it, something came up at the last minute. I hope everything went well and the attendance was good. I have a suspicion that something also came up for our new Libertarian friends.
