Counter-Insurgency as a State Philosophy with Peter Gelderloos
From It's Going Down
Counterinsurgency as a state philosophy has been used to crush uprisings before they even happen by pacifying movements and managing conflict to ensure the stability and continuity of governance.
We spoke to anarchist author Peter Gelderloos to understand the relationship between repression and recuperation, the reason why capitalists are attracted to democracy, how anarchists can be more effective and apply those principles, and a whole lot more.
