The Best Years of Our Lives
In this episode, we drink some basic beers, and talk about leftist organizations that pass themselves off as revolutionary, but really just function as cults. I was a member of one of these groups before really identifying with anarchism, and that experienced solidified my commitment to the big @, and still informs my politics. Anyone who's ever wondered what it's like to sell Leninist newspapers in the street should watch!
Anarchism is a philosophy which, over the years, has often been seriously misunderstood, thanks largely to the efforts of its enemies. But the situation seems worse than ever today, in that even those who call themselves anarchists sometimes lack a clear understanding of what it involves. Sometimes they accept the comic-book version of anarchism presented to us by the mainstream media and so help perpetuate that parody.
Not long ago anarchists were gifted copycats. The autonomist movements of Europe set a prime example of how to take an idea, open it up to participants, and allow for them to experiment and improve on ideas as they went.
The Social Centre Movement was key in imagining anarchist spaces seeking freedom from the status quo, and gave birth not only to the infoshop but also to the DIY movement, and longer-lasting experiments like Christiania.
Gatorna (”The Streets”) is an anti-authoritarian self-organized media project, which aims to inform and inspire! The site broadcasts information from different class struggles and rebellions as well as encourages revolutionary actions and revolt. Gatorna is not a place for information/news produced by mainstream media, political parties, reformist unions and similar organizations. Gatorna does not compromise with power structures but gives space to non-hierarchical spreading of information and discussions directly from the streets to the streets. Gatorna strives to spread grassroots information in a non-hierarchical way without supporting the construction of ideological dogmas and reflects a multitude of perspectives and experiences. This project is spun out of the idea that we, the radical social movements, to an all greater degree have been getting our information from bourgeoisie press rather than from our own infrastructures. That means that someone else sets the agenda for us and that our own autonomous projects do not become “real” if they do not get any publicity in the bourgeois "public" sphere. It is an impossible situation for a movement whose goals are directly opposed to the interests of the owning class.
“Why, then, has mankind not long ago gone extinct during great epidemics of madness? Why do only a fairly minor number of individuals perish because they fail to endure the strain of living – because cognition gives them more than they can carry?” asks Peter Wessel Zapffe in his 1933 essay, “The Last Messiah.” For him, the cosmic panic he saw endemic to the capacity for meaning-making burdened his species with a perpetual psychic scramble to avoid absorption into the infinite regression which undergirds that capacity. For anarchists, the whole of the world as it is faces them with similarly unthinkable problems whose sheer magnitude, complexity, or both render them as in fact meaningless by dint of scopes in excess of the capacity for a given brain to cognize them, terminating thought into impermeably blank anagnorisis. Having achieved a state of no mind, only those with suitable religious inclinations bother remaining here for long.
