In 1996, Bunting also set-up the server www.irational.org, a system for irrational information and products for the roaming and displaced.
In the run up to this years AND Festival in Manchester join Heath as he leads a series of bi-monthly workshops at Madlab that will give you the skills to develop new identities.
Entailed to prepare you for the final stages of the Bankster-generated economic collapse, participants will be encouraged to acquire some solid assets, a weapon and an exit strategy at this workshop, with the help of some useful maps you can learn how to build a new off-the-shelf identity to help you escape! The message: Don't be content with rioting and looting! Arm yourself with your rights and really get even! The workshop is based on concept the that "our identity is constructed as human beings that can possess one or more natural persons and control one or more artificial persons. The higher up in the class system the better the access to status variety."
To register for the workshop please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you more information prior to the workshop.
*Tea and cake will be provided, but no guns or gold.
