Among Farmers is a work of tactical agriculture. It is a game to be played literally, ideologically, and affectionately. To play, our thought must be engaged concretely, materially, in everyday experience: in our bodies, in our worlds, and with our others.

A LARP, an RPG, a set of principles for direct actionAmong Farmers takes its queues from a diverse array of sources. Errico Malatesta's anarcho-communism, Herman Melville's Billy Budd, Sailor, the Green Armies of the Russian Civil War, Robert Cover's legal criticism, Wendell Berry's land-community, Avery Alder and Benjamin Rosenbaum's "no dice, no masters," and the economic critiques of racialized policing and incarceration from Cedric Johnson, John Clegg and Adaner Usmani, and Dustin Guastella.

The game itself is ultra-minimal, formatted to fit on a single business-card. The accompanying essay provides the game with its theoretical framework and with sources for further reading. It is printable in both letter and half-letter zine format. To print the zine, select "booklet" and "both sides" in your print options.

Title font is Kalmansk by Simo Herold. Cover image is from Jacobin.
