Bob and I met Trace and his partner Kristin recently when they moved up here from the coast. Kristin is a media activist. and co-founder of Be Yr Own Hero.

Trace works at Eastern Carolina Organics, a marketing and distribution service for local organic fruits and vegetables. Trace also hand makes books and writes an excellent blog called Cricket Bread.

Basically, they both live and breathe Anarchy, something which up until now is a concept I’ve been having difficulty grasping. Fortunately, Trace does a masterful job of making the concept clear in his latest blog entry.

In his words, Anarchism is “community based, non-hierarchical, inclusive, effective, non-governmental, do-it-yourself, consensus-based, and sustainable.”

All those things we stand for as individuals, we can stand for together! Who knew? If there is any chance the working class can beat the corporations which run our world, this is it.

To date, we have ordered three of Trace’s hand made books and are quite impressed with his writing and his workmanship.
