  1. Action Will Be Taken
    Left Anti-Intellectualism and Its Discontents

    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 2004
    Marxism's decline isn't just an intellectual concern -- it too has practical effects. If you lack any serious understanding of how capitalism works, then it's easy to delude yourself into thinking that moral appeals to the consciences of CEOs and finance ministers will have some effect. You might think that central banks' habit of provoking recessions when the unemployment rate gets too low is a policy based on a mere misunderstanding. You might think that structural adjustment and imperial war are just bad lifestyle choices.

  31. Anarchists in the Spanish Civil War
    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 2002
    For workers around the world, the Spanish Civil War was a beacon of hope against the tide of reaction then sweeping Europe. As the promise of workers' revolution was being dashed by the rise of fascism in Germany and the rise of Stalinism in the Soviet Union, the workers of Spain led a heroic fight against the 1936 uprising of General Francisco Franco. In the process, they led not only a struggle against fascism, but also a workers' rebellion that gave the world an inspiring glimpse of what workers’ power could look like. The Spanish Civil War was also the high point of anarchist influence in the international workers' movement.
  32. The "Anarcho-Liberal"

    Connexipedia

    Resource Type: Article
    Anarcho-capitalists hold that "anarchy", meaning "without rulers", implies that people should be free to own property and engage in business. They hold that preventing them from voluntarily doing so would be a form of institutionalized coercion, and therefore by definition not anarchy. They accept that this would mean some inequality in society, but they argue that equality must not be enforced by social coercion.

    Chapter IV for The Anarchists, by James Joll

    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 1979
    It was Bakunin who gave later anarchists an example of anarchist fervour in action; and it was Bakunin who showed how great was the difference in theory and practice between anarchist doctrine and the communism of Marx, and thus made explicit the split in the international revolutionary movement. Bakunin, too, more than any of his contemporaries, linked the revolutionary movement in Russia with that of the rest of Europe, and derived from it a belief in the virtues of violence for its own sake and a confidence in the technique of terrorism which was to influence many other revolutionaries besides anarchists.

    Resource Type: Unclassified
    An excerpt from the 'confession' Mikhail Bakunin wrote in prison to explain his revolutionary goals and his ideas about how to organize a revolution. He writes: "I wanted to transform all Bohemia into a revolutionary camp, to create a force there capable not only of defending the revolution within the country, but also of taking the offensive outside Bohemia....

    All clubs, newspapers, and all manifestations of an anarchy of mere talk were to be abolished, all submitted to one dictatorial power; the young people and all able-bodied men divided into categories according to their character, ability, and inclination were to be sent throughout the country to provide a provisional revolutionary and military organization. The secret society directing the revolution was to consist of three groups, independent of and unknown to each other: one for the townspeople, another for the youth, and a third for the peasants.

    Each of these societies was to adapt its action to the social character of the locality to which it was assigned. Each was to be organized on strict hierarchical lines, and under absolute discipline, These three societies were to be directed by a secret central committee composed of three or, at the most, five persons. In case the revolution was successful, the secret societies were not to be liquidated; on the contrary, they were to be strengthened and expanded, to take their place in the ranks of the revolutionary hierarchy."

    More than six decades after her death, the anarchist Emma Goldman still stirs passionate political debate. Goldman made headlines in January 2003 when University of California, Berkeley, officials refused to allow the university's Emma Goldman Papers Project to send a fundraising appeal that quoted Goldman speaking out against war and for free speech. University officials said the appeal was too "political" to appear during the Bush administration's ramp-up to war in Iraq. Researchers at the Papers Project, which houses Goldman's personal and public papers, refused to concede in the face of university threats and organized protests against the university's suppression of free speech that forced the university to back down.

    Resource Type: Book
    The second and final volume of Wexler's life of Emma Goldman tells the story of her forced exile to Russia in 1919, the Spanich Civil War and finally her death in 1940 in Toronto. She became an eyewitness to the new Soviet state but had no qualms about airing her disagreements with their policies. Goldman would become dissolusioned with Lenin and Russia and ended up in political limbo-seen as pariah by the left and courted by the conservatives. The great triumph of the period was the brief time in Barcelona in 1936 when anarchism went from theory to reality. That moment however was fleeting as the communists defeated their leftist allies then themselves were destroyed by Franco. Goldman returned to North America a disappointed woman. As Wexler points however out she was one of the few who spoke out against the purges and massacres while others hid their cowardice behind cant.

    Starting in the 1970s, a new consensus emerged among serious scholars of the Russian Revolution. Instead of seeing the rise of Stalinism as the predetermined outcome of Leninism or workers' power, "revisionist" historians looked instead to the devastating effects of civil war and international isolation. They discovered that the early years of the workers' state were far more complicated and rich than the standard right-wing inevitable-march-to-totalitarianism version. In its broad outlines, their work confirmed that material conditions, rather than Bolshevik original sin, transformed a mass, popular revolution into its opposite, Stalinism.

    Luxemburg writes that "the mass strike in Russia [in 1905] has been realised not as means of evading the political struggle of the working-class, and especially of parliamentarism, not as a means of jumping suddenly into the social revolution by means of a theatrical coup, but as a means, firstly, of creating for the proletariat the conditions of the daily political struggle and especially of parliamentarism. The revolutionary struggle in Russia, in which mass strikes are the most important weapon, is, by the working people, and above all by the proletariat, conducted for those political rights and conditions whose necessity and importance in the struggle for the emancipation of the working-class Marx and Engels first pointed out, and in opposition to anarchism fought for with all their might in the International."

  142. National Anarchism
    Connexipedia Article

    Resource Type: Article
    National-Anarchism is a syncretic political current that was developed in the 1990s by former Third Positionists to reconcile anarchism with nationalism and in some cases racial separatism. It has philosophical roots in the writings of Julius Evola and the neo-Spenglerian Francis Parker Yockey, and claims Pierre-Joseph Proudhon, Mikhail Bakunin, Peter Kropotkin, Leo Tolstoy, and Max Stirner among its influences. Critics are concerned that national-anarchism may be the potential new face of fascism. They argue that by adopting selected symbols, slogans and stances of the left-wing anarchist movement in particular, this new form of post-war fascism hopes to avoid the stigma of the older tradition, while injecting its core fascist values into the newer movement of anti-globalization activists and related decentralized political groups.

This organ should be the secret and universal association of the International Brothers.... a sort of revolutionary general staff, composed of dedicated, energetic, intelligent individuals, sincere friends of the people above all, men neither vain nor ambitious, but capable of serving as intermediaries between the revolutionary idea and the instincts of the people."

    For some two centuries, anarchism -- a very ecumenical body of anti-authoritarian ideas -- developed in the tension between two basically contradictory tendencies: a personalistic commitment to individual autonomy and a collectivist commitment to social freedom. These tendencies have by no means been reconciled in the history of libertarian thought. Indeed, for much of the last century, they simply coexisted within anarchism as a minimalist credo of opposition tothe State rather than as a maximalist credo that articulated the kind of new society that had to becreated in its place.

  222. Who Controls The Black Bloc Anarchists?
    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 2009
    Whose interests do the violent actions of the black bloc benefit? The interests of the general public in using free speech as a means of political change? Or the interests of the authorities in providing the perfect pretext with which to crush and outlaw that free speech?

Real political change takes generations of struggle, decades of building respected educational platforms, and a gargantuan grass-roots movement focused on taking power on the local level and expanding upwards. Throwing a brick through a window isn't going to achieve anything other than making the vast majority of the general public despise you even more, and support the very systems of power that you are supposedly opposing. The black bloc sect exist to provide the media with violent footage with which to demonize legitimate protesters.
