SLINGSHOT #117: free, newspaper, 15 pgs.

May 07, 2015

Oh, to read a newspaper! Feeling ink smudge against my finger pads and hearing the rustle of the oversized pages, I have to admit these are experiences I rarely indulge in.Slingshot is the newspaper experience I have yearned for. Personally, I have grappled with the concept of anarchism—the contradictions I’ve encountered, the lack of a true and visible end goal, and the countless run-ins with holier-than-thou radicals who claim to know how to live life better than I do. Slingshot is like a breath of fresh air. Though I approached it with trepidation, the smart, delightfully well written articles captivated my attention. Many of my apprehensions were addressed within each of the articles. Differences of opinion on any given topic not only existed but were also discussed within the very same issue! The opinions and ideas presented were offered in a manner that was honest and accessible. After reading, I was filled with genuine respect and admiration for both the authors and the publication as a whole. –Ashley Ravelo (Slingshot, 3124 Shattuck Ave., Berkeley, CA 94705)
