This essay is slightly expanded from one which was rejected by a US anarchist magazine for political reasons. It deals with a disagreement among activists: Should we propose that the movement raise a program of demands? I think that anarchists should, but with a more libertarian-democratic version than the liberals and state socialists. The essay is followed by a response to the political points raised by the editors of the anarchist journal. read full story / add a comment

This is a review of Ronald D. Tabor, The Tyranny of Theory: A Contribution to the Anarchist Critique of Marxism (2013).
Marxism, like anarchism, came out of movements for democracy, socialism, and working class liberation. Its goals were for a free, cooperative, classless, stateless, and nonoppressive society. Yet Marxism ended up establishing totalitarian, mass murdering, state capitalist, regimes. This is the paradox of Marxism. Why did this happen? An attempt to analyze this is made in this new book by Ron Tabor, a former Marxist and now an anarchist. Wayne discusses Ron's ideas. read full story / add a comment

Democratic Party politicians have denounced right-wing Republicans as "anarchists." Why? Are they "anarchists"? What about rightwingers who call themselves "libertarians"? Are "anarcho-capitalists" really anarchists? Are they consistent with the tradition of "individualist anarchism"? read full story / add a comment

Marxists argue that anarchists really do advocate a state, or something indistinguishable from one, but do not admit it. But what anarchists advocate is the overturning of the existing state and the creation of a new, nonstate, association of councils, assemblies, and a popular mililtia. There is no such thing as a "workers' state." read full story / add a comment

For Black History Month: In 1941, the African-American labor leader, A. Philip Randolph made a call for a national demonstration by African-Americans in Washington, D.C. The demonstration never occurred, because of sabotage by White and Black liberals. But the organizing for it, and the movement behind it, continuing during World War II, had a big impact on U.S. Black people. It was an important influence preparing for the Civil Rights and Black Liberation struggles of the 1950s and ‘60s. read full story / add a comment

Αξιολόγηση του βιβλίου του David Porter, Κοιτάζοντας στο Νότο – Γάλλοι Αναρχικοί και Αλγερία - Από το 1954 έως το 1962, ένας βίαιος πόλεμος μαίνεται μεταξύ των λαών της Αλγερίας και του γαλλικού κράτους. Οι αναρχικοί στη Γαλλία έπαιξαν ένα μικρό αλλά σημαντικό ρόλο αντιδρώντας στον αποικιακό πόλεμο της κυβέρνησης. Οι δραστηριότητες και οι απόψεις των αναρχικών, μαζί με τη στάση τους προς την μεταπολεμική Αλγερία, παρουσιάζονται σε αυτό το εξαιρετικό βιβλίο. Οι τρόποι που οι Γάλλοι αναρχικοί αντιτίθενται στον πόλεμο και οι διαφορετικές απόψεις που είχαν πάνω σ’ αυτόν, μπορούν να βοηθήσουν τους σημερινούς αντιεξουσιαστές (στις ΗΠΑ και αλλού) να προβληματιστούν σχετικά με τους αγώνες κατά της εθνικής καταπίεσης.

There has been a flood of books about the Great Recession of 2007-2009 and the limping "recovery" which we are now living through - which the liberal economist Paul Krugman has called a "depression". Of the many works, one of the more interesting is by Foster & McChesney (2012). Among its several virtues are its clarity of style, rare among economists of any orientation. The chapters began as separate articles in the left magazine, "Monthly Review", of which Foster is the editor. (This causes some repetition.) It is a continuation of the previous book, The Great Financial Crisis: Causes and Consequences (Foster & Magdoff, 2009; reviewed by me: Price, 2010). read full story / add a comment

Book review of David Graeber's "Debt: The First 5,000 Years." A good history of debt, credit, and money. Weaknesses in seeing debt as central to economic development, downplaying role of human labor, exploitation, and class struggle. This leads to a misunderstanding of the recent economic crisis, and to a limited and inadequate vision of a post-capitalist future. read full story / add a comment

A sostegno degli scopi anarchici e per capire come funziona il capitalismo, torna utile agli anarchici ricorrere alla teoria economica di Marx. A tal fine, si criticano qui di seguito 3 saggi sull'economia capitalista elaborati da teorici della parecon (Participatory Economics). [English] read full story / add a comment

In support of anarchist goals, and to understand how capitalism works, it is useful for anarchists to use Marx's economic theory. As an illustration, three essays on the economics of capitalism as developed by theorists of Parecon (Participatory Economics) are critiqued. [Italiano] read full story / add a comment

Paul Krugman, il noto economista liberale, ci presenta il suo programma per mettere fine all'attuale depressione economica, seguendo una strategia keynesiana di espansione della spesa pubblica. Ecco qui la mia critica radicale di questo programma, fatta secondo la prospettiva di un anarchico che crede nell'utilità della teoria economica di Marx. [English] read full story / add a comment

Paul Krugman, the widely read liberal economist, lays out his program for ending the current economic downturn, by following a Keynesian strategy of expanded government spending. I make a radical critique of his program, from the perspective of an anarchist who believes in the usefulness of Marx's economic theory. [Italiano] read full story / add a comment
