    well.

    it was sort of a philosophy that developed in the early 90's out of straight edge and veganism. but took it to such an extreme it's difficult to label it left or right wing. i'm sure you can find the manifesto somewhere if you look.

    basically, hardline preached a straight edge, vegan, pro-life doctrine with the use of violence to achieve these goals. it was a lot of talk and very little action. it's epicenter was memphis, and a record label released a handful of records by vegan reich, raid, and statement. none are so memorable that you should trip over yourself trying to find them.

    it took itself way too seriously. talking about a vegan society and those who eat animals being exterminated and things like that. i suppose that's one of the reasons it petered out. kids get into hardcore because it's fun, and it didn't seem like being hardline was much fun.
    all there is- is in the knowing, that this never has to end.

    that pretty much explained it, i had an idea of what hardline and it was pretty much that.. but thanks for the explanation.. are the guys from earth crisis hardline?? because i know there vegan and very militant (not violently) but would they fall into the hardline catigory.
