Libertarian Socialism is the brand of socialism which opposes statist, authoritarian, and oppressive varieties of socialism. It is anti-statist, radically democratic, self-managing, and humanistic. It blurs the boundaries between anarchism and Marxism, especially between class-struggle anarchist-socialism and libertarian-autonomist Marxism. These 15 essays place libertarian socialism in the context of various anarchists, syndicalists, council communists, decentralists, and libertarian communists--examining their views and histories. read full story / add a comment

There has recently been controversy on the Left over "free speech" for right-wingers (not necessarily fascists). Should it be supported or physically opposed? Some leftists have revived interest in the ideas of Herbert Marcuse on "repressive tolerance" and why it should be opposed. Marcuse's theory is reviewed and arguments are raised against it from a revolutionary anti-authoritarian perspective. read full story / add a comment

Alle organizzazioni politiche anticapitaliste che hanno come orizzonte una società egualitaria fondata sulla libertà non sfuggirà la necessità sempre più pressante di costruire situazioni di cooperazione e di coordinamento per sostenere quelle forze sociali che sono il tessuto reale dell'alternativa di oggi e di domani.
Il comunismo, quello libertario, è sempre all'ordine del giorno. read full story / add a comment

ireland / britain / the left / opinion / analysis Thursday June 15, 2017 20:24 byAndrew Flood   image 4 images
Corbyn’s strong showing in the June 2017 UK elections has given a big morale boost to the left.  A considerable youth vote, self-mobilising in larger part as a reaction to the ‘me and mine’ selfish society revealed by the Brexit vote seriously set back Tory plans for a fresh wave of Brexit required austerity.  Activists used social networking to overcome what had previously been seen as an all powerful smear machine of the billionaire print press.  Very few outside the radical left expected this outcome, what drove it and more importantly where can it lead?
[ This is a long read so you can also listen to an audio of the text ] This piece is not going to answer that in terms of assumptions and assertions but as far as possible through hard numbers.  66% of 18-24 year old’s voted Labour, only a quarter of that, 18% voted Tory [p4].  27% of those 18-24 year olds said the NHS was the most important issue for them, even though they are least likely to need it [p40].  For the over 65 age group this was flipped, only 23% voted Labour and over twice as many (58%) voted Tory [p4].  In fact, given the way the UK election system works, if only 18-24 year olds had voted, Labour would have been heading for 500 seats.  If it had only been those over 65 voting the Tories would have had over 400 seats. read full story / add a comment

We live in a paradoxical world. Much debate on the radical left revolves around multitudes of discontented groups – sometimes lumped together as the 99%, sometimes rebranded as precariat – struggling against an abstract empire and its 1% rulers. Capitalism and class – once serving as a compass to navigate left politics through the apparently chaotic sees of everyday life – have turned into subjects of theoretical debate with little to no connection to political praxis. read full story / add a comment

É lugar comum ouvir em análises e expressões vindas de todas as camadas da esquerda e da centro-esquerda, algo como “quando este povo vai se levantar indignado”? Além do sentimento de revolta e frustração – totalmente compartilhado por este que escreve – a afirmação também traz elementos de certa condescendência com o governo deposto e algo da perigosa inocência politica. Neste breve texto, tento demonstrar como a categoria ideologia foi desprezada e, por óbvia consequência, a relação com o oligopólio da mídia – em especial com a empresa líder – foi reificada. read full story / add a comment

In this post, Anarchist Lens returns to the subject of electoral politics and how it demobilises the struggle for change. The example of the German Greens is examined. In the late 70s, Die Grünen (The Greens) emerged as a new force on the German and European left. Radical and activist led, they claimed to be aware of the pitfalls of the electoral process and were, in their own words, an ‘anti-party party’. Yet, in less than twenty years, they had capitulated on all their key principles: tolerating nuclear power, rubber-stamping German participation in NATO and even agreeing to capitalist-friendly market reforms. How did this transformation come about? read full story / add a comment

Oriente Medio es históricamente visto, desde Occidente, como una zona caliente. Desde las películas hollywoodenses hasta las empresas de viaje, ponen el acento en la extrema violencia que vive la región. Sin embargo, lo que nadie dice sobre esa violencia es que es agitada, y financiada, sistemáticamente, por Occidente y su punta de lanza: los Estados Unidos. read full story / add a comment

La elección de Donald Trump es una más de una serie de insubordinaciones políticas espectaculares que, en conjunto, apuntan a un colapso de la hegemonía neoliberal. read full story / add a comment
north america / mexico / the left / non-anarchist press Monday January 23, 2017 16:18 byNancy Fraser
The election of Donald Trump represents one of a series of dramatic political uprisings that together signal a collapse of neoliberal hegemony. These uprisings include the Brexit vote in the United Kingdom, the rejection of the Renzi reforms in Italy, the Bernie Sanders campaign for the Democratic Party nomination in the United States, and rising support for the National Front in France, among others. Although they differ in ideology and goals, these electoral mutinies share a common target: all are rejections of corporate globalization, neoliberalism, and the political establishments that have promoted them. In every case, voters are saying “No!” to the lethal combination of austerity, free trade, predatory debt, and precarious, ill-paid work that characterize financialized capitalism today. Their votes are a response to the structural crisis of this form of capitalism, which first came into full view with the near meltdown of the global financial order in 2008. read full story / add a comment

There is no doubt that over the last couple of decades our movement has declined dramatically . Not only it is not achievable anymore, in fact it cannot maintain what had already achieved before. It is also very clear that Marx's theory is not the remedy for the current situation any longer. I believe it is extremely hard to expect that the revolution to take place in the advanced industrialised countries, at least not in the very near future.

This article puts forward the argument of possibility that the revolution could happen in the less or non-industrialised countries, before the advanced industrialised countries.

The article explains the mechanisms that exist in the non-industrialised countries that brings about the revolution.

Dopo una lunga malattia che lo ha costretto a ritirarsi dalla carica nel luglio 2006, Fidel Castro è morto lo scorso 25 novembre. Nel corso della sua vita Castro era sopravvissuto a molti sforzi degli Stati Uniti per rovesciare il suo governo ed anche eliminarlo fisicamente, vedi la sponsorizzazione di invasioni, numerosi tentativi di assassinio e attacchi terroristici. Castro ha tenuto il potere politico supremo a Cuba per più di 47 anni, e anche dopo aver lasciato il suo alto ufficio ha continuato ad essere politicamente impegnato per diversi anni incontrando numerose personalità straniere e scrivendo le sue Reflexiones sulla stampa del Partito Comunista Cubano.
