“The Revolution aimed at new arrangements; insurrection leads us no longer to let ourselves be arranged, but to arrange ourselves, and sets no glittering hopes on “institutions.” It is not a fight against the established, since, if it prospers, the established collapses of itself; it is only a working forth of me out of the established.” – Max Stirner, The Ego and It’s Own
Deep in the savage State of Florida sits a hyena den where Sorcerers discuss Communization and Insurrectionists breathe life into anti-cop mojos. At the crossroads of the political and the spiritual, the violent and the theoretical, even the holy and the profane, sits The Conjure House, home to Dr. Bones.
I’m a 10 year practitioner of Traditional Southern Conjure and have walked with the spirits my entire life. Whether it was healing broken relationships, drawing money to starving artists, or putting the jinx on some asshole who deserved it, I’ve undertaken all aspects of the work. Self taught and spirit-led I’m familiar with Arabic Lunar Mansions, Shamanism, Chaos Magick, Psi Phenomena, Necromancy and Mediumship. I’m quite hireable and affordable, able to aid in the following areas:
Spousal Problems, Fixing your Boss Up, Getting Lucky, Drawing Money, Getting Rid of Troublemakers, Increasing Psychic Vision, Breaking Jinxes or Hexes, Retribution Work, Removing Spiritual Attachments, Gaining Control Over a Situation, and much, much more.
What I’m also familiar with is a burning hatred of the wretched Capitalist system that keeps us enslaved, and unlike other authors I’m not afraid to say non-violence keeps that same system in place. A Conjurer’s place is in the Revolution and we Hyenas must bring a swift and merciless death to all that would limit us. If I must label myself to facilitate understanding I’d say I’m an Egoist-Communist, Insurrectionist, and an Illegalist. I believe individuality can only flourish where equality of access to the conditions of existence is the social reality. This equality of access is communism; what individuals do with that access is up to them and those around them. I do not believe in protest or “waiting” for something to occur. I believe we must all begin striking where we can, however we can, even if simply for our own enjoyment.
Freedom cannot be granted. It must be taken. This ethos informs my politics as well as my Hoodoo.
My writing, found at Gods & Radicals and Disinfo, is for pioneers and accomplices attached to no party, non-conformists standing outside herd morality and conventional “good” and “evil.” Sometimes falling, sometimes triumphant, sometimes vanquished,they join the cause of class struggle not as a demagogues, but as a inciting elements; not as apostles, but as a living, effective, destructive forces. As individuals who share these ideas increase in number, so will our chances improve of seeing our aspirations realized; the wider our voices spread, the more our activity grows, the more will our lives will be mutually intensified.
Only when we have become as wise as the Serpent and as riotous as the Hyena can we truly begin to make ourselves.
