Like a tidal wave: A Case for Anarchist Agency

Anarchist Movement

Effectively communicating our messages is also a way to counter what I call “brand anarchy,” where businesses/media appropriate the ideas and sell them back as rebellious alternatives within mainstream culture. As the ideas of anarchism have been popularized and coopted, a split set of narratives has developed.

Raoul Vaneigem on Lautreamont and Anarchism

Art & Revolution

Lautréamont entered literary history by means of Maldoror, and, with the mastery of Isidore Ducasse, the author of the Poésies, he is almost indebted to it for not being excluded from that history. Of the judgments made by critics, how many try to prove their innocence – through embarrassment or the casualness with which they open the “Préface à un livre futur” with a tactic disavowal – an unconfessed disapproval of the Poésies? None, no doubt, as it is true that their disaffection still appears in their will to subject the delicate processES by which multiple aspects of a single being are differentiated to the mechanisms of a purely formal logic.

Palestine-Israel - the joint struggle in turbulent times

Middle EastThe popular unarmed struggle of Palestinian communities joint by Israeli anarchists against the wall and others is not a struggle for the "national liberation" or "self determination" of the Palestinian nation. It is the struggle of Palestinian people which overwhelm majority of them are working people against the threat of transfer, and the suppression and exploitation by the Israeli Zionist settler colonialist project. No one of the involved in the struggle who are not in the Palestinian elite have illusions about the Palestinian elite and the state they will rule and manage after the end of the occupation. No one of the involved in the struggle believe that the end of the direct occupation will solve the 1948 Nacba and the refugees problems. However, they still prefer the end of the occupation and independence from Israel, over the direct Israeli rule, as it will not be an agent of transfer or of so brutal suppression and exploitation.

In Defense of Radicalism

Dissent

In the present period few terms or ideas have been as slandered, distorted, diminished, or degraded as radical or radicalism. This is perhaps not too surprising given that this is a period of expanding struggles against state and capital, oppression and exploitation, in numerous global contexts. In such contexts, the issue of radicalism, of effective means to overcome power (or stifle resistance) become pressing. The stakes are high, possibilities for real alternatives being posed and opposed. In such contexts activists and academics must not only adequately understand radicalism, but defend (and advance) radical approaches to social change and social justice.
