“I hope that an infinite number of bombs explode against the citizenry”

Translated from Maldición Eco-extremista on atassa.wordpress.com

“Human jails were made to contain those whose impulses, reactions, and instincts made them incapable of living in society in a peaceful way. The technological system has an essential role to play in the penitentiary structure. There would be many more prison breaks if not for the security cameras, motion detectors, drones, electric fences, etc. One could thus quickly conclude that the object of one’s critique should not be prisons per se, but the giant technological corporations that ensure that prison really is a detention facility for those who are dangerous to the system.

TOTW: the Alt-Right

Over the past few years and especially proceeding Trump's election, there has been a lot of debate about the growth of right-wing authoritarianism. One of the items on the table is the use of terminology to describe relatively new forms of ideology and practice throughout Europe and the United States. In the USA, pundits are taking positions on the label "alt-right;" whether a variety of different sorts of authoritarians ought to be recognized in their particularities, or rather exposed as (or lumped into) an undifferentiated camp that we simply call "fascists" or "white nationalists".

From submedia.tv

Yesterday we posted the documentary on the history of Anarchism "No Gods No Masters" (it's amazing!) Seems the distributor made a mistake and made the upload public. By the the time they took it down, already hundreds of people had seen it, and some even downloaded it. One such person put in on YouTube. So for a limited time (probably) here is is again. - submedia

TOTW: Call Outs: what's worked

  • Posted on: 1 November 2016
  • By: thecollective

If we've been around at all, we've all had experiences of either being called out, or calling out, or both. This totw is not for the same conversations about how fucked up the most egregious examples are (a target that is far too easy), but one about our own positive (as much as possible, and however complicated) experiences: when has calling out someone or something worked in a specific case? when has someone had a really solid response to being falsely or correctly called out?

TOTW: On democracy, electoral politics, and voting

  • Posted on: 24 October 2016
  • By: thecollective

Like so many anarchists, perhaps your brain has begun to hurt and your to stomach churn when you hear yet another conversation about the USA presidential election, or talk of any election or democracy for that matter. With the election a little more than two weeks away perhaps now is a good time to pause and reflect on our anarchist analysis of democracy, electoral politics, and our actions leading up to and beyond this election cycle.
