The False Idol of Self-Sacrifice

Anarchism has often been conflated with social work, much to the chagrin of those of us who prioritize undermining oppression over improving how it functions. The tendency towards charity, thinking it solidarity even when we want very different things politically from those we try to aid, is complicit in the maintenance (or manufacturing) of authority.

Travelogue: For a projectualty in times of war (and in times of peace)

Often we think of our ideas as pillars staved-in stable grounds. However, the grounds are generally stable but in appearance. It’s enough for conditions to change, for the grounds becoming muddy or for the waters rising, to see our stable grounds move and our dear pillars subsiding like castles of cards. Then panic seizes us, we run from one indigestible alliance to the next one which is even more improbable, our concepts which we thought so solid become gelatinous, shift into modelling clay, and in a short laps of time, we become what we always despised: simple pawns on a chessboard we do not understand. This happened to quite some anarchists when the First World War broke out, it happened to Spanish anarchists dragged from a revolutionary situation into a full scale war, it happened to many revolutionaries caught up in the geopolitical games of the Cold Ward, and it will happen again tomorrow.

Self-Destruction as Insurrection, or, How to Lift the Earth Above All That Has Died?

From http://www.e-flux.com

Modernism imagined itself to be beyond eschatology, those primitive bedtime stories about the end of the world, the last judgment, or some final act that would settle things as they ultimately should be. Modernism, however, in imagining that it could overcome its Abrahamic heritage, preserved it. Even as it claimed to surrender the idea of a savior, sent from heaven to redeem a fallen world, it relocated this figure again and again in this or that individual, class, or grouping—the enlightened monarch, the universal proletariat, the creative entrepreneur. The “revolutionary subject” is just another messiah born without original sin, in whose name the sinful and the fallen pursue their earthly redemption. In the absence of the savior, the image of the end of the world returns and the apocalypse reigns.

On Two Revolutions

by NEZUMI, from HAPAX blog

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.
