The Government is Never Incompetent

from IGD by Simoun Magsalin

Power in the Pandemic under Duterte

From the beginning of the pandemic, anarchists were not surprised to see opportunistic power grabs by nation-states around the world. Governments have used the pandemic as an opportunity to deepen social control. The state showed its mortality, as well as highlighted the true misery of capitalism for many; global markets came to a halt and governments scrambled to appear as if they had a plan. At the same time, it is no surprise that many governments saw this as an opportunity to further consolidate power, as the unprecedented virus sparked fear across all of humanity.

From Gods and Radicals by Christopher Scott Thompson, October 13, 2021

A Response to “What Happened to Anarchism”

This post is a response to Rhyd Wildermuth’s “What Happened to Anarchism? (A Critique of American Antifa)”, which was published here on Gods and Radicals on September 7. As I am an anarchist and anti-fascist, Rhyd must have known I would disagree with his article. Still, I doubt he would have predicted the impact it had on me. After reading what Rhyd had to say, I was up until four in the morning wrestling with intense anger and sorrow because of his words.

Against All Domination at Anarchist Gatherings (1986-89)

A series of annual gatherings from 1986 to 1989 revitalized the anarchist movement and built the infrastructure for national and continental coordination. I will share more writing about this in the future, but I wanted to share a quick anecdote about the debates over food and animal liberation at these convergences. They offer a window into the evolving values and ethical norms of the anarchist movement at the time. Anarchists developed a commitment to fighting all forms of oppression, hierarchy, and domination—including of other species—rather than solely focusing on capitalism and the state.
