Anarcho's blog

Now with added pirates!

Now with added pirates!

Headlines I did not expect to see:

Pirates release French yacht crew

Off the coast of that "anarcho"-capitalist utopia, Somalia. I wonder if the ideologues will using that as a selling point? I can just see it now:

"Not only does anarcho-capitalism hold the possibility of voluntary slavery, you can also be a pirate! Just like in the movies..."

Letter to Anarchy

Well, I seem to have pissed off Lawrence Jarach of Anarchy magazine. Not sure how, exactly. Maybe it was my letters critiquing their attacks on Platformism a few years back. If you are interested, they are:

Letter to Weekly Worker

I send letters reasonably often. I've just sent one to the UK based Weekly Worker on the Russian revolution. They edited it down, and cut out a couple of key points. Their version can be found here. They removed a key quote from Engels and the awkward fact that the Bolsheviks onslaught against the soviets started before the civil war, amongst others...

Is there much point in doing this? Does it have in impact? Or is it water off a duck's back?

Anyway, here is the letter in its original form.

Worth doing?

Well, I could have a blog. Would this be of interest to anyone bar me?

I'm currently revising section H of An Anarchist FAQ and I've confirmed my opinion that Lenin not only distorted the anarchist theory in "State and Revolution", but also Marxist theory as well. The social democratic vision of revolution was, in fact, the orthodox Marxist one -- so the SPGB are right!
