Poster activism, supplies & storage


  I think calling our outreach efforts "marketing" and "PR" also causes them to lose their value, although that is a separate point.

  My main response to what you wrote below is that putting posters on an ugly construction clapboard wall where it's common for people to put up posters is a far cry from putting them on a private business, let alone a private home, without the owner's consent. It's the difference between preaching on a soapbox on the street corner versus yelling at people as they step out of their doorways.

P.S. - When it comes to public property, one person's "defacement" is another person's art. I do not feel obliged to follow government dictates concerning which is which.

The real problem here, if it isn't obvious, is that public property is a
contradictory, nonlibertarian concept. Public property belongs to
everybody and nobody. And I don't see a sharp distinction between a
corner soapbox and accosting somebody on their doorstep.
Philosophically, a libertarian case could be made for blowing up City
Hall (cf. Guy Fawkes). But Chris, Rob, and Brian make an important
practical point about the effect on our cause, in terms of our being
perceived as champions of property. Just because one person's art is
another person's defacement-and one person's music is another's noise
pollution-I say keep it all out of "public" spaces.


  "Keep it all out of 'public' spaces" would imply no more street corner musicians, no more Pride parades, etc. Surely that's not what you advocate as a "meanwhile" solution on the road to anarchy?

That would be my personal preference. My neighborhood is about as quiet
as you can find, but rock concerts in the Park make it impossible to
work or sleep.
