There is a new approach on the U.S. Left, which rejects both capitalism and state socialism. In several ways it resembles anarchism. It has been promoted by The Next System Project, and has been critiqued recently by Sam Gindin--who makes some insightful comments, but also demonstrates limitations. ... read full story / add a comment

In recent decades, there have been efforts to "rehabilitate" the U.S. Communist Party as an historical model for the Left. Anti-authoritarian socialists and anarchists find this troubling. Whle the CP did some good things it also did some very bad things. A brief summary of its history demonstrates that and explains why this is. ... read full story / add a comment

Theorists of the climate-justice movement have been raising decentralist ideas as part of their programs for an ecologically-balanced society. This ecological program means more local democracy, workers’ management of industry, consumer coops, and federations of radically-democratic institutions. Such ideas revive the decentralist ideas of anarchism.

For months there has been a heated discussion over charges that Michael Schmidt, author of well-known books about anarchism, is actually a fascist and "white nationalist." Now that the main statements are out on both sides, I have been waiting for an evaluation by some panel of reputable anarchist activists and theorists. As this has not happened, I am publishing my own conclusions. ... read full story / add a comment

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. ... read full story / add a comment

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. ... read full story / add a comment

Liberals and progressive forces support the Democratic Party in elections, even though humanity is facing a number of interconnected threats and nightmarish catastrophes: economic, ecological/climate, and others. Democratic liberals, while perhaps the "lesser evil" to the Republican reactionaries, have no solutions to the objective dangers which threaten society with great suffering and destruction. The only real alternative is popular mass struggle or defeat--socialist-anarchism or catastrophes. ... read full story / add a comment

Anarchism and the philosophy of pragmatism can add to each other. Pragmatism is explained as a philosophy of active experience and experimental naturalism. Pragmatism advocates radical, decentrlized democracy and industrial self-management, which is very close to anarchism. However pragmatists have often opposed reformist perspectives to revolution. The case for revolution is presented. ... read full story / add a comment

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

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

severas.jpg image[Colombia] Manifiesto Marika 10:37 Tue 21 Jun by Colectiva Severas Flores 0 comments

Somos la Colectiva Severas Flores. Somos colectiva como grupo de personas, no como masa uniforme, sino como conjunto heterogéneo, como multiplicidad de cuerpos, existencias, sentires y luchas que se atreven al encuentro; y somos colectiva en la medida que resistimos al lenguaje patriarcal desde el ejercicio de denuncia de la masculinización de las lenguas, desde el reconocernos como palabras y espacios en disputa, construcción y deconstrucción.

Somos libertaria porque asociamos lo libertario con la tradición anarquista de la eliminación de todas las formas de opresión; entendemos lo libertario como la posición que lucha por la libertad de “ser” con otres, de existir en colectivo, de destruir todas las formas autoritarias en que se intenta encapsular el poder.

Somos severas flores porque nos re-apropiamos de una burla, de un chiste, de un insulto, de una violencia naturalizada, solapada, que esconde un profundo sexismo hacia cuerpos considerados masculinos al proponerlos débiles, femeninos, errados, insuficientes. Somos flores, flores tan fuertes como delicadas. Somos severas al pararnos duro, echar raíces contra la explotación y resistir siendo nosotres mismes. Entendemos la feminidad no como sinónimo de debilidad o pasividad sino como uno de tantos colores que nos componen y que la monocromía patriarcal quiere negar. Las flores crecen a pesar de todo, son el esfuerzo constante de una planta para sacar semilla, contienen los órganos sexuales de ellas y son parte del equilibrio natural interespecie. Al mismo tiempo las flores transitan, son efímeras; tan efímeras como nuestras vidas y burlan el dogma, la rigidez y el control que se quiere imponer en nuestras formas de verlas, pues están sujetas al cambio, a la mutación. Las flores rompen el sistema de prejuicios, negando lo binario y proponiendo lo múltiple, dado que muchas son hermafroditas, diversas, subversivas: No sólo son “bellas”, hay flores horribles que se cagan en los cánones de belleza racistas y occidentales; no todas huelen “bien”, algunas apestan a rebeldía y sueños de libertad; no todas son débiles, algunas matan, incomodan e irritan si no se les respeta.

A casi 4 años de conversaciones entre las FARC-EP y el gobierno nacional en busca de una salida negociada al conflicto interno armado, parece haberse llegado a un punto de inflexión que prevé la pronto finalización de la negociación y el inicio de un largo proceso para materializar lo pactado.

El anuncio público del 23 de Junio que expone sumariamente los acuerdos logrados en puntos tan polémicos como el cese al fuego y las hostilidades, dejación de armas, garantías de seguridad para la guerrilla y los movimientos sociales y políticos, acciones contra los grupos “sucesores del paramilitarismo” y la refrendación de lo pactado[1], los cuales corresponden a casi la totalidad del punto 3 (Fin del conflicto) y una pequeña parte del aún pendiente punto 5 (implementación, verificación y refrendación) del acuerdo general construido por las partes[2], nos plantea un escenario de no retorno que pese a las discusiones aún irresueltas han permitido sustituir la mentada premisa de “nada está acordado hasta que todo este acordado” por la emotiva y repetitiva expresión: “que este sea el último día de la guerra”

El rastro de este reaccionarismo social y de penetración en la cultura y en la religión, es un espectáculo dantescos de misoginia, de homofobia y uno rechazo “medieval” a los avances obtenidos dentro de la Constitución Federal de 1988.

textMaking sense of the Brexit tide of reaction and the reality of the racist vote Jun 28 by Andrew 1 comments

The Leave / Brexit vote in the referendum came in the end as a surprise, a narrow win for Remain was expected. This may be because the core Leave vote was in the run-down white working class communities of the now desolate English and Welsh industrial zones. A population trapped in conditions of long-term unemployment and poverty who no one really pays much attention to anymore. Some on the left have seized on the makeup of this core vote to suggest that there was some progressive element to the Brexit vote despite the campaign being led by racist hatemongers and wealthy US-oriented neoliberals. Mostly that’s a mixture of wishful thinking and post hoc justification for having called for a Leave vote in the first place, but it is true that a section of the working class, C2DEs in marketing speak, voted to Leave in close to a 2:1 ratio. Is the class composition of that vote enough to automatically make it progressive regardless of content? And what does it tell us that a section of the radical left seems to think the answer to that question is yes, that it is enough to be anti-establishment?
