    Editor: DJ Slo-Mo.
    A collection of bits of speeches from the annual Bay Area Anarchist Book Fair, Mob Action Against the State is about half interesting and thought provoking, and half dry and boring; not bad for a two-CD compilation with a wide selection of activists going off about subjects generally concerning anarchism and other related subjects. Among the best speeches is one by activist and journalist Christian Parenti who discusses how capitalism requires poverty-stricken masses and weak unions to function and flourish. Craig O'Hara is probably the most entertaining and lively speaker. He has a great story about an old friend who was this supercool, great guy and one of his punk pals when he was young and then he bumps into him 15 years later in San Francisco at a gun range and the guy turns out be a cop who has moved out to San Francisco because they are trying to make the S.F.P.D. more like an East Coast-style police force. He confronts him about this and asks the guy if he doesn't remember when cops used to shut down all of the shows they used to go to when they were kids. It's an excellent, funny piece. Jello Biafra is as eloquent as always talking about the war on terrorism and how you don't have to be with George Bush or with the terrorists, but you can be firmly against both. Otherwise, there's a lot of material about the history of this and anarchists should do that and why don't working class people do this and blah blah blah, which will put most people to sleep. But it's worth skipping through those bits to get to the more interesting speeches from a several folks who have a lot to say. ~ Adam Bregman
