Earthquakes and Revolution

Keita Watano, while taking up Yasushi Kurihara in his commentary on current events in “Avid Reader” asks, “is an earthquake a revolution?”. As someone who has assessed Kurihara on this blog, I’ll respond. For anarchy, revolution is the release of governance, a condition in which nature’s superiority over civilization is exposed, and within those terms we can say that the conditions brought about by disasters such as earthquakes are close to a revolution.

On Two Revolutions

When it comes down to it, there are two revolutions. The revolution which answers and the revolution which does not, or the revolution which answers and the revolution which questions. The revolution which is made to conceal even a millimeter of teleology, evolutionary theory, or program is the enemy. Caught between right wing and liberal, the old left, New Left, and even officially recognized anarchism (including mutations like anarcho-fascism) form a gradation. All of this amounts to nothing more than a struggle over governance. All that matters is severing ourselves from it.
