"[Anarchist Monthly] used to write special reports about the president. I saw the guy who wrote for that magazine being taken away to prison. Being imprisoned for telling the truth... That's downright wrong!!!"
The Anarchist Monthly are written articles in Final Fantasy VIII, found in the mission briefing room in the Forest Owls' Base. Each magazine contains information about the dictator Vinzer Deling and is written in the form of revolutionistic persuasion. Originating from Timber it seems the magazine only lasted for four issues before being shut down.

Moreover, the leaders of the resistance movements faced the threat of having family members imprisoned as well. Around this time, Deling began surrounding himself only with loyalists, which turned him into an even more fierce dictator.
