The other thing I feel I must mention is that the first few issues will contain reprints of some articles originally appearing in the pre- release issue #0 (this issue, the Anarchism outline is reprinted). This is mainly because many people reading this never had a chance to read issue #0. Also, youíll probably notice many format changes if you did happen to read issue #0. "Funny Pages" has been reduced to a page, cyberfunnies. This is an attempt to make better use of space, such as giving a full page to 3 articles that were previously only allowed a half-page. However, nothing is written in stone, and suggestions are always welcome. Well, Iíve babbled enough for now, it appears that for this issue, we actually have a letter, so lets get on with it, shall we? Our first letter is from Steven McKenna of Summerside, in response to a Note of Appreciation from the Rich:
Placing all the blame upon the "upper class" is hardly a step towards solving the problems of the social gap. After all, weren't the upper classes born into their assigned places along with the rest of us?? Perhaps the manner in which the rich manipulate the poor is just as unconscious as the way in which the poor submit to the rich. To merely place the blame upon a visible, easy target (the rich) is no more productive (in my humble opinion) than blaming blacks, women and homosexuals. So, maybe we should try to look at the class problem from a different perspective, one that doesn't lay the blame so easily.Good points, but Iíd like to put in my 2 cents worth, too. It seems to me that the point of the article wasnít to tell us who we should blame, but to get us to stop blaming others and start making our own changes.
Well, we need more letters, so donít be shy, speak your mind. Hasta la Mata fer now!
