TOTW: Serendipity and the Flame

The dream is dead. There is no big-tent; no mass. The siren song of community organizing is silent.

A coin falls to the floor--one side, Populist Struggle; the other, a Struggle to identify.

There are no hyphens; no anarchism with adjectives. The rock of ideology is no match for the river.

Many have come to idolize infrastructure; infatuated with their captors. Permanence is a myth and those who peddle it are spiritual thieves. Everything is falling apart.

Topic of the Week: Your Favorite Anarchist Action(s)

  • Posted on: 22 February 2016

We thecollective invite you to discuss your favorite anarchist actions from the distant and/or recent past, or in an imaginary future. Of course, definitions of "anarchist action" will be questioned as well and we expect to see many different ideas about the designation of an action as anarchist. However, this thecollective contributor suspects that even those that would dismiss the idea of an "anarchist action" completely still have a special place in their hearts for some kinds of behavior. What might those be?

When asked by Portland author and former WW reporter Corey Pein on Twitter whether the pizza company stole their idea, the group responded: "You can't own an idea, so they didn't steal anything, but fuck Domino's, it's obviously a marketing ploy and not actually care for the community."

From anarchist communist group

This article is based on a talk given by the London group of the ACG at the Radical Bookfair on June 2, 2018.

The slogan ‘Land and Liberty’ has long been an anarchist slogan. It was the name of the Russian revolutionary organisation ‘Zemlya i Volya’ in 1878 and was used by the peasants in the Russian Revolution. When women marched in St Petersburg on the 8th of March, 1917, helping to kick off the revolution, the slogan was Bread, Land and Peace. ‘Tierra y Libertad’ was prominent in the Mexican and Spanish Revolutions and is still used today as the name of the Iberian Anarchist Federation paper.

Given that we have an idiot in the Whitehouse. Given that we have driven the alt-right back to the shadows where they belong. Given that a blue wave is coming.

Given that 2018 is the year of Mo. Given that we are finally ready to take environmental problems seriously.

The Death of a Gig Worker

An 8-year-old told me about Pablo Avendano’s death: “My dad’s friend was just killed riding his bike.” The 8-year-old was a friend of my son, Dai. I had taken the boys out for water ice in our neighborhood in Philadelphia. “He went out to work and he’s never coming back,” my son’s friend said, bobbing on his feet. “And he didn’t even like his job!” Avendano made deliveries through Caviar, the food-ordering app.“His boss is probably in trouble,” Dai said.
