Revolutionary Horizons of the Pandemic w/a Crimethinc Participant

In this episode of the solecast I sit down with a crimethinc participant. I view crimethinc as some of my favorite philosophers of “anarchy,” with no adjectives. Throughout the pandemic their instincts have been spot on so I’m excited to share this conversation.

Notes on “Social Anarchism or Lifestyle Anarchism”

Notes on “Social Anarchism or Lifestyle Anarchism”

From Libertarian Labyrinth by Shawn P. Wilbur

These are notes from a Reddit debate on “lifestylism.” They are by no means an exhaustive critique of Bookchin’s most divisive text, but perhaps they give some reasons to believe that more is not necessarily needed.

Looking at Social Anarchism or Lifestyle Anarchism: An Unbridgeable Chasm, these problems jump out immediately:

Serbia: The Latest Front in the COVID-19 Riots

Serbia: The Latest Front in the COVID-19 Riots

An Anarchist Perspective from Belgrade

Just outside the European Union, Serbia is the latest country in the COVID-19 era in which simmering unrest has given rise to open revolt. In this upheaval, as at the beginning of the Gilets Jaunes movement in France, protesters of every persuasion from fascists and football hooligans to liberals, leftists, and anarchists are competing to determine the shape of future protest movements. In the following account, anarchists in Belgrade describe a week of confrontations in the capital city, analyzing why it is important to prevent fascists from dominating clashes with the authorities and to prevent liberals from delegitimizing such clashes as “violent” or inherently fascist.

July 4 in Minneapolis: The Logic of Autonomous Organizing

From Crimethinc.

July 4 saw fiercely ungovernable demonstrations from Olympia to Atlanta. The following report from south Minneapolis describes a march that took place that evening, exploring the logic of autonomous organizing and concluding with a gallery chronicling the graffiti that the march left in its wake.

The Anarchists versus the Plague

From Crimethinc.

In 1884, cholera tore through Italy, claiming thousands of lives. Despite a three-year prison sentence hanging over his head, Errico Malatesta joined other revolutionary anarchists on a daring mission to Naples—the heart of the epidemic—to treat those suffering from the disease. In so doing, he and his comrades demonstrated an alternative to coercive state policies that remains relevant today in the age of COVID-19.
