Menace in Europe

Anarkismo (en) - Mon, 04/13/2015 - 10:49
Lessons on unassimilated fascist Islam in Europe
Now that the grief over the terror attack on the Parisian satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo and on a kosher supermarket has subsided, overtaken by outrage at the far larger massacres perpetrated in Africa by Boko Haram in Nigeria and al-Shabab in Kenya, allow me to offer some observations about the cuckoo in the nest: unassimilated fascist Islam in Europe. I will rely here on some personal anecdotes of my time spent in Paris, the insights of French comrades, and in particular on Claire Berlinski's book Menace in Europe: Why the Continent's Crisis is America's Too (Crown Forum, New York, 2006).

Bolivia: Burdens of a State Manager

Anarkismo (en) - Mon, 04/13/2015 - 05:44
In the open­ing salvos of Latin America’s uneven lurch to the Left in the early twenty-first cen­tury, Bolivia dis­tin­guished itself as the region’s most rad­i­cal socio-political ter­rain.1 Left-indigenous move­ments in the coun­try­side and cityscapes alike threw the state into cri­sis and brought two suc­ces­sive neolib­eral pres­i­dents to their knees – Gon­zalo Sánchez de Lozada in 2003, and Car­los Mesa in 2005.2 Evo Morales’s party, the Movimiento al Social­ismo (Move­ment Towards Social­ism, MAS), leapt into the power vac­uum opened up by this series of revolts, and there has been seri­ous debate on the Left as to how best to but­ton down the cen­tral polit­i­cal dynamic of the coun­try ever since. In a coun­try where 62 per­cent of the pop­u­la­tion self-identified as indige­nous in the 2001 cen­sus, Morales became the first indige­nous pres­i­dent through the Decem­ber 2005 elec­tions with 54 per­cent of the pop­u­lar vote, assum­ing office in Jan­u­ary 2006. He repeated this extra­or­di­nary elec­toral suc­cess in Decem­ber 2009, with 64 per­cent, and again in Octo­ber 2014, with 61 percent.

Ο Θεός είναι το απόλυτο Μηδέν

Anarkismo - Sun, 04/12/2015 - 06:23
Το παρακάτω κείμενο είναι μια περικοπή από τον τόμο που κυκλοφόρησε από τις εκδόσεις «Ελεύθερος Τύπος» «Φεντεραλισμός Σοσιαλισμός Αντιθεολογισμός» του Μ. Μπακούνιν. Είναι, όπως φαίνεται και από τον τίτλο που επιλέχθηκε από μια φράση στο κείμενο, κομμάτι του κεφαλαίου για τον Αντιθεολογισμό. Ίσως είναι πράγματα που, θα πει κάποιος, πως έχουν ειπωθεί ή πως η επίκληση της επιστήμης έναντι της θρησκείας είναι χιλιοχρησιμοποιημένη στην τελευταία φάση εξέλιξης του καπιταλισμού. Παρ’ όλα αυτά, η φιλοσοφική αξία του κειμένου είναι αδιαμφισβήτητη και θα έλεγα πως σε καιρούς που ο σκοταδισμός επιστρέφει με ταχύτητα και μάλιστα, σε καιρούς που η αλματώδης τεχνολογική εξέλιξη του καπιταλισμού τον ντύνει με έναν μανδύα -ψευδο- προοδευτικότητας, η πολεμική, και κυρίως, η λογική της πολεμικής ενάντια στους παλιούς συμμάχους της εξουσίας, είναι περισσότερο από ποτέ αναγκαία.
