I haven't seen a thread for this, so I made one! For all of those who have not read the book by Kerry Thornley, here - http://theanarchistlibrary.org/library/kerry-thornley-zenarchy
Thoughts?

There might be a reason that 13 years in the board's existence, we don't talk about Thornley's stuff much.

This book had a big impact on me. I've actually got it in print.

I liked Thornley's description of how naming the movement was its death.

Love the koans too:

Quote
The Shortest Theological Debate in History

Ho Chi Zen: “What is God like?”

Tom: “Somebody. I don’t care.”



a few snippets of this book made it into Camden Benares (aka the Count of Fives) book "Zen without Zen Masters".. If you like Zenarchy you should check it out.

Although it is quite dated and a lot of it revolves around sex, I rather liked Zen Without Zen Masters.

You could say that one some level most things revolve around the base of Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs, but that would just be stating the obvious.

On an intellectual level, most adult people are able to move past brainstem-level drives and contemplate topics that are more abstract than fucking, staying warm, and shoving food into their faces.
