Writer Highlight: Dr. Bones
Is there a contradiction in Marxist Conjure? Or Communist Hoodoo? Meet Dr. Bones, one of our newer–and more prolific writers. As well-versed in Marxist and Critical Theory as he is in spirit-work and the occult, Dr. Bones writes confidently (and engagingly) on current events, modern history, and the tangled threads of state power and magic.
From his essay, Folk Magick As Insurrection:
What else is magic but the metaphysical embodiment of Anarchism, of politics on a spiritual plane? That YOU could defy the laws of the “Lord” and make new arrangements for yourself, that YOU could gain insights and knowledge beyond your “station” in life, that YOU needn’t wait for someone to save you because you were going to save YOURSELF? Isn’t that what Sorcery is all about? Wasn’t it a battle against the dragon Zarathustra spoke about, the one that must be defeated, that must be slain?
You cannot buy the revolution.
You cannot make the revolution.
You can only be the revolution.
It is in your spirit, or it is nowhere.
–Ursula K. Le Guin
