Editorial: TOTW: New Laws in the New Normal (11/5/21)

by Anonymous

We may be past the worst, or not. The economic and climate crisis are still playing out. It remains to be seen whether and (if so) how capitalism will recompose for a new wave. If there’s an upturn then there may well be some social liberalisation or attempts to imitate aspects of anarchism in a tamed form. (I say this because of the similar process with liberalism in the nineteenth century and socialism in the twentieth). Archaic and pointless laws (e.g. against drugs and sex work) might be repealed. If there isn’t an upturn then the state might survive but with reduced resources, or it might collapse. In either case the gap between what’s legal and what’s possible will grow.


The Legacy of Peter Kropotkin

via Autonomies

These words are part of Peter Kropotkin’s heritage. But he himself went through a sad episode: he became intoxicated by the nationalism of French and English culture, supposedly progressive and favourable to the next revolution in the Latin and Slavic countries, which weakened his analytical capacity.With incredible courage, in very fragile health, after forty years in exile, Kropotkin decided to return to Russia, already liberated from Tsarism in 1917, to end his life there. It was then that Lenin wanted to meet and manipulate Kropotkin. Or was it his attempt to do the opposite? We will see this strange situation on another occasion.
