"We can choose not to live. That is the most beautiful reason for opening oneself up to life with joy."

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.

The Dark Mountain Manifesto on Immediatism Podcast

"It is, it seems, our civilisation's turn to experience the inrush of the savage and the unseen; our turn to be brought up short by contact with untamed reality. There is a fall coming. We live in an age in which familiar restraints are being kicked away, and foundations snatched from under us. After a quarter century of complacency, in which we were invited to believe in bubbles that would never burst, prices that would never fall, the end of history, the crude repackaging of the triumphalism of Conrad's Victorian twilight -- Hubris has been introduced to Nemesis.
