From The Conversation

The Dispossessed is set on two human worlds: the planet Urras, which resembles 1970s Earth; and Anarres, the moon of Urras, home to a unified anarchist collective. Anarres was settled from Urras by people seeking a better, fairer life, and the resulting collective has been largely isolated from Urran cultures for about 150 years.

After a long hiatus, subMedia’s foul-mouthed news anchor, the Stimulator, is finally back with his brand new show…. The Fuckin News!

In this pilot episode of TFN, Stim interviews far-right youtube troll, El Chico Lobo, and covers the alt-right’s pitiful attempt to hold a picnic in Chicano Park. Plus some good ol’ fashioned riot porn from Italy.

325 : The ”tough” bitches

From Anti-social Evolution by Archegonos

This is what todays humanistic world has created, some ”tough” bitches, bitching behind computers and words, in this way, hiding their weakness and patheticality as organisms. They are only ”personalities”, they see themselves as ”individualities”, they are the highest essence of Christ. ”I am a total Spirit, I am not afraid of anyone, I don’t recognize other powers, I am completely severed from the physical and the natural reality, I have my ideology, I am free!”. Individualism for them is the recycling of the gospel of Christ as an answer to authority. So a heavenly constructed ideal against a natural physical reality. It is not the realistic, tactical individualism. It is a humanist spiritual value. Egoist values and such, you know! Because egoism doesn’t describe a natural condition, no it is an ideology with content! You need guides such as ”How to be the best egoist you can!” or ”Be the better egoist (human spirit)”. And of course only the Light of Anarchy can teach us these.

I Have No Mouth But I Must Scream

From The Cult of Infinity

While I have doubts about the efficacy of militant anti-fascist actions in the US, like the one that shut down a certain self-professed internet troll in Berkeley for a myriad of reasons, the response to the riotous events from the liberal mouthpieces merits a response from anarchists that rejects the language of the Left that has always walked hand in hand with the Right. Anarchists would be wise to discard this language because by accepting it is to already violate the most basic unifying principles for us; that we are enemies of Government and State.

TOTW: Language

  • Posted on: 4 December 2016

Words dilute and brutalize; words depersonalize; words make the uncommon common. Culture is made up of languages - languages of words and numbers, of concepts and assumptions, of conventions and expectations, of problems and solutions, of answers and questions. Languages write our lives: they set the options whenever we make a choice, however free we may be in selecting. At the same time, it is our use of them that makes them what they are and reproduces them. This week we’re looking into how languages enforce their constraints upon us and ways to adjust, subvert, and remake anarchist dialogue.

New anarchist translation project: Theory Without Borders

  • Posted on: 14 June 2016
  • By: thecollective

Theory Without Borders is a project focused on promoting anarchist texts, theory, and analysis through translating texts into English in order to give their original authors a platform to access a larger audience. The anti-authoritarian left is an important voice that is often ignored or misrepresented within mainstream media, even if it is a major influence behind many contemporary global movements such as Occupy or Rojava.
