PREPARING FOR OUR FIRST ACTUALLY BLACK FRIDAY:

Hey scrubs, Critical Mass Crew here! You may have heard our call to action in our previous post (if not you can read it here). Here's a summary: "Shit's fucked, anarchists are alone as usual, and it's time we start acting on our own behalf."

Critical Mass! Get Off Your Ass!

Critical Mass is a project to get anarchists out into the street and causing trouble. Every month until May Day there'll be a new challenge which independent anarchists and crews will be able to creatively solve, naturally leading into higher levels of struggle with the systems of control with the intention of making an especially explosive May Day 2020.

We will be showing a collage of video documentaries and historical stock footage related to Audre Lorde and Emma Goldman (30-45 minutes) and followed by a discussion relating to the intersecting philosophical themes that they both illustrated in their writings that relate to the anarchistic genealogy of the refusal and rejection of state, capital(ism), and the multitude of hierarchies (institutional & interpersonal) that dominate our lives.

On the "Anarchist Society"

I’ve had the pleasure of talking to anarchists of many stripes and colors. From anarcho-capitalists, to anarcho-communists…From anarcho-primitivists to anarcho-transhumanists. While all of these ideologies claim to be anarchist, I have always noticed something that keeps me from really seeing them as anarchist. To me, these kinds of ideologies seem to have more in common with something like communism, socialism, or capitalism, than actual anarchy. Too many anarchists want to prescribe solutions, and propose ways of living, rather than voluntarily work with others to come up with an egalitarian way of living.

No-Wing Anarchy

I am told that anarchism is a “left wing” ideology, by many. I am not sure those who claim this understand the true meaning of the term.

The terms “left wing” and “right wing” come from the position of seated delegates during the French Revolution. The bourgeoisie would sit to the left, and the monarchists would sit to the right. The first leftists were, in fact, capitalists.

Nihilism is Not Nothing

Ask nearly anyone, and they will tell you that nihilism is a belief in nothing. Popularized by the movie, the Big Lebowski, and perpetuated by lazy academics and philosophers, this misunderstanding of nihilism has led to a sort of demonization in anarchist circles. Primitivist John Zerzan frequently laments about nihilism, saying things like “…you start having people that are so nihilistic they don’t even care about life anymore.” To Zerzan, nihilism is simply not caring about life.

TOTW: Polyamory

  • Posted on: 16 June 2019

This topic comes up from time to time but usually buried in something else. I have found that polyamory (or other versions that boil down to having deep, romantic, non-exclusive relationships over time) is the most consistent way to keep anarchist community strong over time. Obviously this isn't everyone's goal. Some people want insurrectionary (sudden, bursting anarchy that can go away as fast as it comes on) relationships. Others want organizational relationships (manifestos, lots of meetings, and hard straight lines).
