Il mondo malato

Quanti anni sono passati dal vertice di Kyoto che partorì il famoso protocollo, secondo il quale gran parte degli Stati della Terra si impegnavano a ridurre le proprie emissioni di CO2 e degli altri gas serra, responsabili principali dell'aumento repentino della temperatura media del Pianeta?

Come possiamo continuare a delegare i nostri bisogni, la difesa della nostra salute e dell'ambiente biologico in cui viviamo, a persone che, per il ruolo sociale che rivestono, pensano prima di tutto ad accumulare denaro e proprietà, infischiandosene del bene collettivo?

The expansion of the US attack on Afghanistan and Pakistan is not due to the personal qualities of Obama but to the social system he serves: the national state and the capitalist economy. The nature of the situation guarantees that the system will act irrationally. Anarchists should participate in building a broad movement against the war, while raising our political program.

In discussing President Obama’s expansion of the US attack on Afghanistan and Pakistan, it is important not to focus on Obama as a personality but on the social system to which he is commited, specifically to the war-waging capitalist national state. “War is the health of the state,” as Randolph Bourne declared during World War I. It is what the national state is for, what it does, and why it still exists, despite the real trends toward international unity and worldwide coordination. In an age of nuclear bombs, the human race will not be safe until we abolish these states (especially the big, imperial, ones such as those of North America, Western Europe, and Japan) and replace them with a federation of self-managing associations of working people.

Anarchism can learn a lot from the feminist movement. In many respects it already has. Anarcha-feminists have developed analyses of patriarchy that link it to the state form. We have learned that no revolutionary project can be complete while men systematically dominate and exploit women; that socialism is a rather empty goal if men's domination of women is left intact.

This essay argues that anarchists can likewise learn from the theory of "intersectionality" that emerged from the feminist movement. Indeed, anarchist conceptions of class struggle have widened as a result of the rise of feminist movements, civil rights movements, gay and lesbian liberation movements, etc. But how do we position ourselves regarding those struggles? What is their relationship to the class struggle? Do we dismiss them as "mere identity politics"?

Jamás he sido muy bueno para las matemáticas, pero el siguiente cálculo es bastante sencillo: súmense 10.000 nuevas tropas a Afganistán, sistemáticas violaciones en las ocupaciones de este país y de Irak, silencio cómplice ante dos genocidios, uno en Gaza, el otro en Sri Lanka (donde aún hay 300.000 seres humanos en campos de concentración), un golpe de Estado en Honduras donde la participación norteamericana ha sido un secreto a voces (aunque les haya salido el tiro por la culata), siete nuevas bases militares en Colombia y ¿qué tenemos de resultado? Un premio Nóbel de la “Paz” para el presidente de EEUU, Barack Obama.

En realidad, no me quita el sueño lo que hagan o dejen de hacer con un premio que vale bien poco, y que el único mérito que cuenta para obtenerlo es el cálculo político. Es verdad que este premio lo han recibido gentes de indudable valor como Pérez Esquivel, Rigoberta Menchú, Martin Luther King o Desmond Tutu. Pero estos casos en verdad son más bien excepcionales...

Pinochet and Wojtłya

In June 2009, one of Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet’s most renowned accusers, Judge Juan Salvador Guzmán Tapia, visited South Africa on a speaking tour. Dean of the Law School at the Universidad Central de Chile in Santiago, and also a lecturer in human rights at the School of Journalism at the Universidad de la República, Guzmán was originally a Pinochet supporter, but turned against him after being selected by judicial lottery in 1998 to hear the 186 criminal charges against the man who, until his death in 2006, cast such long shadows over Chilean political life.

For those Chileans who took to the streets of their poblaciones in the early 1970s and mid-1980s to demand the release from Robben Island of Nelson Mandela and for an end to the apartheid regime in South Africa, the rightward shift of the African National Congress (ANC) with its embrace of anti-working-class neoliberalism is likely to be confusing. How did the world’s most celebrated new democracy come to be marred by ongoing violent protests by the poor against “their” government, faced down by police as bloody-minded as before, by continued housing evictions and mass forced removals so evocative of the depths of apartheid (1)? This analysis shall attempt to explain the trajectory of South African “democracy” and the failure of the “South African Revolution” by comparison to the Chilean experience of the popular overwhelming of Pinochetist reaction – in which the Left found itself fundamentally defeated, even as it attained its cherished victory.

textIn the Shadow of Social Democracy: Right-Wing Challenges and Left Alternatives Apr 24 18:12 by Ingo Schmidt 0 comments

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.

Το βιβλίο του Πιοτρ Κροπότκιν «Νόμος και Εξουσία» εκδόθηκε από τη «Διεθνή Βιβλιοθήκη» το Φεβρουάριο του 1977 και εκτός από το ομώνυμο δοκίμιο, το οποίο μεταφράστηκε από τον Γιώργο Νταλιάνη, περιέχει και άλλα 6 δοκίμια του Κροπότκιν. Η μετατροπή της πρωτότυπης μετάφρασης στο μονοτονικό σύστημα καθώς και η προσαρμογή της γλώσσας και της ορθογραφίας στα σημερινά πρότυπα έγινα από εμάς, χωρίς αλλαγές στη σύνταξη και χωρίς να υπεισέλθουμε σε έλεγχο της νοηματικής απόδοσης.

La reciente declaratoria de guerra de Corea del Norte a Estados Unidos y su vecino Corea del Sur suscita opiniones encontradas. Están quienes defienden la retórica de Estados Unidos porque el país asiático está armándose “hasta los dientes”. Otros, como la izquierda del capital, llaman a defenderla ante la amenaza del imperialismo norteamericano. Sin embargo, ¿cuál es el interés que tiene la clase obrera en este conflicto?

Nonviolence can be used in many circumstances as an effective tactic, but it is irrelevant, irresponsible, and utterly ridiculous to even consider it as a strategy. So yes, nonviolence should be utilized as a tactic where pertinent, and in turn pacifism, as an ideology and a strategy, must be purged from our movement.

Although the 20th century may have seemingly signalled the eclipse of libertarian forms of socialist thought under the bureaucratic weight of ‘real socialism’, Bakunin views are an urgent reminder of what socialism could be. His voice, in spite of some antiquated expressions, resonates a hundred and a half years later with the same vital energy.

Αν δεν απαλλαγούμε από τα όρια του εθνικού κράτους, από το φαντασιακό της εθνικής επικράτειας δυσκολευόμαστε να σκεφτούμε το πώς θα μπορούσε να αυτοκυβερνηθεί αυτή ακριβώς η επικράτεια. Με σημερινούς όρους συνόρων δεν θα μπορούσε, ακόμη και αν τα εθνοκράτη δεν κατέρρεαν, όπως καταρρέουν. Δεν έχουμε λόγο να περιοριζόμαστε σε αυτά τα όρια. Βλέπουμε σήμερα πληθυσμούς να εξεγείρονται, όχι αρνητικα μονάχα, μα με θετικό τρόπο, προχωρώντας σε τοπικές αυτοθεσμίσεις που συνδυάζουν παραδοσιακούς κοινοτιστικούς τρόπους ζωής με το σύγχρονο πρόταγμα της άμεσης δημοκρατίας.

Παρακάτω, λοιπόν, μελετάμε με τα γραπτά του ίδιου του Μπακούνιν αν η σκέψη του προσδιοριζόταν από «πατριωτισμό» όπως κάποιοι θέλουν να πιστέψουμε.

Πριν από μερικούς μήνες, κυκλοφόρησε στη Γαλλία ένα μικρό βιβλίο που μοιάζει «καταδικασμένο» να ταράξει τα λιμνάζοντα νερά της διεθνούς αριστεράς, και ειδικότερα της ριζοσπαστικής αριστεράς. Το βιβλίο αυτό έχει τον εύγλωττο τίτλο«Επαναστατικές συγγένειες-Τα κόκκινα και μαύρα άστρα μας», και για υπότιτλο «Για μια αλληλεγγύη μεταξύ μαρξιστών και ελευθεριακών». Οι συγγραφείς του δεν είναι καθόλου άγνωστοι, πρόκειται για τον ηγέτη του γαλλικού Νέου Αντικαπιταλιστικού κόμματος (ΝΡΑ) Ολιβιέ Μπεζανσενό και τον Γαλλο-Βραζιλιάνο μαρξιστή φιλόσοφο, κοινωνιολόγο και οικοσοσιαλιστή Μικαέλ Λοουί.

Our global society is broken. Donald Trump & Brexit are symptoms along with the rise of the far right elsewhere in Europe. In an old pattern, fundamental economic crisis often results in society becoming very much more brutal for most people.  In the age of nuclear weapons this current crisis could be our last.  And with a somewhat longer countdown to disaster we are also facing climate catastrophe.

anarkismo_banner.jpg imageStatement on the Schmidt Case and Proposed Commission of Inquiry Mar 28 17:50 by Anarkismo 6 comments

In our last statement on the Michael Schmidt case and accusations by journalists Alexander Reid Ross and Joshua Stephens that he is a fascist and white nationalist that attempted to infiltrate the anarchist movement, we said that the Anarkismo network had decided “to call for a commission of enquiry to investigate more closely both the accusations and the defence, and to make recommendations to the broader anarchist movement based on their findings”. Regrettably it has been over a year since we announced our intention to convene a commission of inquiry and it has not yet materialised. While we have recently started making progress once again on the call for a commission and will continue to work towards finalizing our proposal and framework, however, we have also had enough time now to debate aspects of the case both within and between some of the organisations in the network. New developments and information concerning the case have also come to our attention that must be addressed immediately.

Large parts of the western working class now seem to gather around right populists, demagogues, and racists. They vote for reactionary and fascistoid political parties. They helped to vote the UK out of the EU and to make Trump president of the world's superpower number one, and they vote so massively for the far right political parties that the latter have government power in sight throughout several of Europe's most populous countries.

Em 2016 comemoram-se 90 anos da primeira publicação da chamada “Plataforma”. “A Plataforma Organizacional da União Geral dos Anarquistas” foi publicada originalmente na França, em 1926, na revista Dielo Truda, pelo Grupo de Anarquistas Russos no Estrangeiro, do qual participavam Nestor Ivánovitch Makhno, Piotr Andreyevich Arshinov, Ida Mett (pseudônimo de Ida Gilman), Jean Walecki (pseudônimo de Isaak Gurfinkiel) e Maxime Ranko (pseudônimo de Benjamin Goldberg). Neste post comemorativo, o Instituto de Teoria e História Anarquista (ITHA) — além de inaugurar a seção “Arquivo”, que constituirá um banco de dados com fontes produzidas pelos próprios anarquistas — disponibilizará, em três datas diferentes, os seguintes documentos: 1.) A versão fac-simile dos números da revista Dielo Truda em que a “Plataforma” foi originalmente publicada; 2.) A nova tradução da Plataforma ao português, realizada a partir do original em russo; 3.) A tradução ao português do documento conhecido como “Suplemento à Plataforma Organizacional”.

Κατά την περίοδο 1860-1870 μέσα από την συζήτηση και την πολεμική κριτική ανάμεσα στους Μαρξ και Μπακούνιν ήρθαν στην επιφάνεια του εργατικού κινήματος δύο διαφορετικές ερμηνείες του κοινωνικού μετασχηματισμού, του τι είναι πράγματι κυριαρχία και ποιες συνθήκες είναι απαραίτητες για την απελευθέρωση του ανθρώπου. Η έντονη αντίθεση ανάμεσα στις δύο μεγάλες κινηματικές προσωπικότητες είχε τις βάσεις της σε θεμελιώδεις θεωρητικές διαφορές, που ακόμη και σήμερα συνεχίζουν να υφίστανται. Αυτός ο διαξιφισμός ήταν και η πρώτη αιτία για τη διάλυση της Πρώτης Διεθνούς και που αργότερα στιγμάτισε τις πιο ριζοσπαστικές τάσεις, αναρχικές και κομμουνιστικές, του διεθνούς εργατικού κινήματος.

Μολαταύτα, το αναρχικό κίνημα δεν μπορεί να είναι και να παραμένει εσωστρεφές και αυτοαναφορικό. Αν οι αναρχικοί δεν απέρριπταν για λόγους αρχής την συγκεντρωτική διακυβέρνηση, τότε δεν θα είχαν παρά να καταλάβουν την κρατική εξουσία και να αναμορφώσουν δια της βίας την κοινωνική ολότητα κατ’ εικόνα κι ομοίωση των ιδεολογικών τους φαντασιώσεων. Ούτε θα ήταν απαραίτητη η δημιουργική αλληλεπίδραση του προτάγματος τους με τα ετεροκαθοριζόμενα κοινωνικά στρώματα, μιας και θα μπορούσαν να επιβάλλουν μονομερώς το δικό τους έτοιμο από-τα-πριν θεωρητικό μοντέλο για τον ενδεδειγμένο τρόπο οργάνωσης της κοινωνίας σε όλα τα επίπεδα.

Η θεωρία του Μαρξ αποτελεί κατά βάση κριτική της πολιτικής οικονομίας και πιο συγκεκριμένα, την κριτική του κυρίαρχου οικονομικο-πολιτικού συστήματος της εποχής της αυξανόμενης βιομηχανίας του 19ου αιώνα. Ο βιομηχανικός κόσμος, όπως και η άνοδος του καπιταλισμού, φαίνεται ταυτόχρονα να υπόσχονται έναν αυξανόμενο τεχνολογικό και οικονομικό πλούτο, αναπτύσσοντας παράλληλα πολλές αντιθέσεις εντός της κοινωνίας. Ο Μαρξ εντοπίζει αυτές τις αντιθέσεις ως καταπιεστικές και αποξενωτικές για την ανθρώπινη φύση και θεμελιώνει μια θεωρία που προτάσσει τους όρους απελευθέρωσης του ανθρώπου από αυτές.
