Subtitle: Theme: A tribute to the radical imagination of Ursula K. Le Guin
Notes: Fifth Estate #382, Spring, 2010

“We are going to inherit the earth. There is not the slightest doubt about that. The bourgeoisie may blast and burn its own world before it finally leaves the stage of history. We are not afraid of ruins. We who ploughed the prairies and built the cities can build again, only better next time. We carry a new world, here in our hearts. That world is growing this minute.”

-- Durruti
