Gods and Radicals

Gods and Radicals is a registered non-profit pagan anti-capitalist publisher. The name comes from a presentation on anti-capitalism and paganism by Alley Valkyrie and Rhyd Wildermuth.

"A Beautiful Resistance” is the name of Gods and Radicals' print journal. It is also their guiding principle. Because the idea of resisting capitalism and exploitation and patriarchy and all that can seem a bit dreary, and sometimes resistance can be seen as violent, Gods and Radicals thinks that resistance should be beautiful, because the idea is not to replace a violent world with more violence, or a dreary world with more dreariness, but to replace what has become destructive and cruel with something beautiful and life-affirming.

The publishing team consists of a board of four people and a managing editor. Their writers post their own pieces on the site and make their own schedules. A Beautiful Resistance is their twice-yearly publication, collecting the writings and artwork of over 30 brilliant people internationally. They also have published A Pagan Anti-Capitalist Primer, which is a great place to start if you have questions about capitalism and paganism.
