Canenero on Immediatism podcast

Caneneroooooooooooooooooooooooo

"Canenero was a weekly anarchist publication that came out in Italy between the end of 1994 and the beginning of 1997 with one break, when the Marini investigation against anarchists began to bear its rotten fruit in the state's attempt to imprison dozens of anarchists on charges of 'subversive association' or membership in an 'armed gang.' One of the ideas behind Canenero was to provide a means for ongoing communication and discussion in the face of this repressive operation of the state. A substantial portion of the material in the paper dealt with the situation and the various anarchist responses to it." ~from the cover

Extinguish the Old, on Immediatism podcast

Extinguish the Olds.... ageism!

These three podcast episodes contain "just a few of the surviving literary fragments and insurrectio nary ephemera produced by the Russian individualist anarchists A.L and V.L. Gordin, before and during the Russian Revolution. In 1917, the Gordin brouthers founded a society of Anarchist-Communists which they called the Union of the Oppressed Five, the 'Oppressed Five referred to those categories of humanity which endured the greatest hardships under the yoke of Western civilization: 'worker-vagabond,' national minority, woman, youth, and individual personality. The organizationalists adn dry rationalists of the Russian anarchist movement considered the Gordin's wild-eyed philosophers run amuck, annihilators of all accepted verities and traditions who were satanically bent upon the destruction of all institutionalized discipline and (party) authority. In the context of the Russian Revolution, the Gordin Brothers fashioned Molotov cocktails out of these ideas and bolstered their impactive power with their own colorful and explosive language." ~from the cover

The Totality is Incomplete, on Immediatism podcast

Science's inheritance from Christianity is the subject of this enjoyable series of three articles, which first appeared in The Anvil Review. "Golem in the Catacombs" describes us as cyborgs, walking around looking at devices. "For the Love of God" addresses three versions of Victor Hugo's Les Miserables whilst discussing apparatuses of control from Christianity through the present day of science as state religion. "Science" dives deeper, identifying the commonalities between Christianity and science, as partial ways of knowing. The collection of Alex Gorrion's columns for The Anvil Review is entitled The Totality is Incomplete and is from Ardent Press, and available through LittleBlackCart.com. The nineteen essays included share a delightful use of language and frequent surprising connections to popular culture.

Immediatism: Against the Corpse Machine

Defining a Post-Leftist Anarchist Critique of Violence

This is an analysis of both the constant presence of violence and its inevitable presence in projected future anarchist communities. The essay starts by describing the problem of the construction of non-violence, then describes the violence in our anarchist history. It analyzes a number of myths and perceptions, such as that "the People" are alienated by violence. The author, who here goes by Ashen Ruins, takes the case of Mumia as an example of how anarchists commonly, at least conversationally, fetishize and misrepresent situations that should not be described in terms of innocence or justice as these ways of seeing such situations are not anarchistic. Pointing out white supremacy throughout the essay, the author challenges anarchists to recognize the anarchistic acts of violence happening all around us, perpetrated by non-anarchist actors, everyday, and to have an anarchist analysis of whatever we encounter.
