"Black Flame" blog updated again


The Black Flame blog has just been updated. The blog collates news, views and reviews of Lucien van der Walt and Michael Schmidt's book, "Black Flame: the revolutionary class politics of anarchism and syndicalism".

Published in 2009, 'Black Flame' has been a great success. It has generated debate, has helped recover the global history of anarchism/ syndicalism, and the strategic tactical and analytical debates in the historic movement.

The book is on its second print run, and translations are in the works.

There have been launches in Brazil, Canada, Germany, Mexico, South Africa, and the UK, with Sweden coming up soon.

The first of a two-volume set, 'Black Flame' re-examines anarchism's democratic class politics, its vision of a decentralized planned economy, and its impact on popular struggles in five continents over the last 150 years. 'Black Flame's' approach is thematic and analytical, drawing out key themes in the history (for example, pioneering role in Asian and African trade unions, class composition), and theory (on the one hand, the core contours of anarchist/ syndicalist theory and debates within that theory, and, on the other, the key strategic and tactical debates in the historic movement)

Its successor volume, 'Global Fire,' will be a narrative history of the movement from its origins in the 1860s, to the present, covering the world ‘from Albania to Zimbabwe’…

textAnarkismo message of support to 1st Congress of Columna Libertaria Joaquín Penina 17:47 Wed 22 Apr by Anarkismo 0 comments

We are very pleased to be able to congratulate you on the realisation of your First Congress as a specific anarchist political organisation. In light of the disbanding of the Federación Anarco-Comunista Argentina we believe that this is a very important step both for our shared especifista tendency as well as for the development of anarchism in general, both in Argentina and the region.

videoComunique from A(A)A. Anon Anarchist Action 03:47 Thu 24 Feb by NetAnarchist 0 comments

In the last few years, Anonymous has gained increasing notoriety for its action against websites, agencies and organizations that promote censorship and control. It has helped spread information and supported protestors demanding freedoms and rights. But the popularity of the movement, the attention it brings along, and the structure it has engendered threaten to push Anonymous away from the decentralized, collective movement it has been. As decisions become more centralized and newcomers jump on the bandwagon, Anonymous risks becoming yet another ineffective reformist group, fueled by well-meaning rethoric but subject to third party interests and paralyzed by its fear of authority...

Anarchism & Socialism: Reformism or Revolution?
by Wayne Price

From the Foreword by Andrew Flood (Workers Solidarity Movement--Ireland):

"This collection of essays by Wayne Price…will hopefully play a significant part in helping us build the movement we need…..This volume represents a good foundation to this process. It revisits many of the essential basic questions and lays down a coherent position in regard to them. Wayne's insights are important to us because they are based not just on a theoretical study of revolution but on five decades of practical experience in the North American left and the anarchist movement"

textAnarchists lubricate the axes of the wheels of history that revolve too slowly Jul 24 by Ilan S. 0 comments

The main means of all ruling elites throughout history to force the people to submit to their rule was to recruit metaphysical powers - magic, deities and other kinds of lies to
frighten people into submission and accepting authority. People who challenge these lies
were the main enemy of the rulers all along history.

imageBridges between Anarchism and Democratic Confederalism Feb 21 by BrunoL 1 comments

Introduction: discussing the party model and mission – 1

Since the beginning of the Kobane siege by Daesh (ISIS) the Kurdish left, and specifically the Rojava model of social organisation has been studied and followed by several organisations, activists, networks and committed scholars. I decided to collaborate with KurdishQuestion.com to produce a series of short articles to expose (and prove) the similarities between the western (and not western too) anarchist tradition and democratic confederalism. While one of my concentrated areas of study is political theory (and radical political theory), I decided to help in drawing the parallels between both paths and familiarising them to one another. I hope this will help and all criticisms are welcome. [Italiano]

imageKevin Carson’s Revival of Individualist Anarchist Economic Theory Nov 30 by Wayne Price 2 comments

This is a review of Kevin Carson's "Studies in Mutualist Political Economy". Carson seeks to revive individualist anarchist economic theory. Taking from Marxist and pro-capitalist economic theories, he tries to develop an anarchist economics which can analyze existing capitalism as well as provide a model for a market-based but non-capitalist stateless economy.

imageA Response to Rojava: An anarcho-syndicalist perspective Nov 14 by Hüseyin Civan 0 comments

We are not fortunetellers, we can't possibly know what will happen in Rojava a month or a year from now. We can't know that this social transformation which not only gives us hope as revolutionaries that struggle in a geographically close region, but also feeds our struggle in the regions that we struggle in, would move towards a positive or negative future. But we are revolutionary anarchists. We can't just sit aside, watch what's happening and comment; we take part in social struggles and take action for an anarchist revolution.
