Author of The Anarchist Cookbook recants

William Powell, author of The Anarchist Cookbook, has apparently had a change of heart. He’s posted an editorial at where he apparently disavows his own book, citing youthful ignorance. One choice cut:

I want to state categorically that I am not in agreement with the contents of The Anarchist Cookbook and I would be very pleased (and relieved) to see its publication discontinued. I consider it to be a misguided and potentially dangerous publication which should be taken out of print.

I do not know if has verified that this person is actually the author.

Hat tip to Hit and Run.

    Ok, Bryan. If you are so eager to learn, please learn to spell. Steven, please learn to speak. Jared, kids are not naturally stupid. They are naturally misguided. People have led children and teens to believe that violence is acceptable. If our children were educated properly by parents, friends, and media, they might read books such as The Anarchist Cookbook and not actually carry out the recipes in it. And it is entirely justified for William Powell to be upset. He was being rash and was angry when he wrote the book, so he has EVERY right to be ashamed of this book.
