A-Infos: Neither Insurrectionism Nor Reformism but Anarchism!

In this presentation at Saint-Imier we suggested that both of these political currents – reformism and insurrectionism – come from the same source: frustration with the slow and difficult process of building a mass revolutionary movement. —- Our main point is to argue that there are, unfortunately, no short cuts to creating a new society.

Dónal O Driscoll: Towards An Anarchist Anti-Racism

To state the obvious: we anarchists are against racism – or at least we proclaim to be in every statement that seeks to set out a policy of inclusion. That is, we, the predominantly white people who rarely experience racial prejudice, proclaim it.  But is that necessarily true in fact? The implicit assumption is that Read more…

Eric Michael Johnson: The Prince of Evolution: Lee Alan Dugatkin on Peter Kropotkin, Anarchism, and Cooperation in Nature

Evolutionary biologist Lee Alan Dugatkin has made his career studying cooperation, so it makes perfect sense that the subject of his latest book would be an anarchist. In The Prince of Evolution Dugatkin tells the story of the Russian prince, evolutionary theorist, and political radical Peter Alexeyevich Kropotkin whose Darwinian theory of mutual aid was the first to argue that cooperation was Read more…

David Peterson: Reality Denial : Steven Pinker’s Apologetics for Western-Imperial Violence

It is amusing to see how eagerly the establishment media have welcomed Steven Pinker’s 2011 tome, The Better Angels of Our Nature: Why Violence Has Declined,[1] which explains not only that “violence has been in decline for long stretches of time,” but that “we may be living in the most peaceful era in our species' Read more…

Noam Chomsky: On Enlightenment, Classical Liberalism, Anarchism
David Morris: Anarchism Is Not What You Think It Is — And There’s a Whole Lot We Can Learn from It

On February 8, 1921 twenty thousand people, braving temperatures so low that musical instruments froze, marched in a funeral procession in the town of Dimitrov, a suburb of Moscow. They came to pay their respects to a man, Petr Kropotkin, and his philosophy, anarchism.   Some 90 years later few know of Kropotkin. And the Read more…

Eric Jensen: Enough with the Christopher Hitchen’s worship

I woke up this morning to a barrage of twitter and facebook postings mourning the death of a rich white man known as Christopher Hitchens.  While I mean no disrespect to the man himself, I think it is dangerous to place post-left celebrities on pedestals while millions if not billions of people world wide suffer Read more…

Michael Albert: Querying Young Chomsky

In 1976, looking a bit like Buddy Holly, Noam Chomsky gave Peter Jay what I think may be his most extensive interview regarding what a desirable society might look like. I believe the views he offered are still dear to him as well as to many other anarchists. They are dear to me, as well, and have Read more…
