Obama: The times they are a-changing?

A few thoughts on Obama's election victory. Yes, it is historic but real change comes from below and anarchists need to stress that.

On Paul Krugman

A few comments on Paul Krugman winning the so-called Nobel Prize for Economics. He may be left-of-centre and a Keynesian, but his economics are sadly very much neo-classical in nature.

Authoritarians, vanguards and "anti-capitalist" movements

A critique of an SWP attack on libertarian anti-capitalist protestors. Exposes the hypocrisy of Leninists attacking others as undemocratic as well as the impractical nature of their alternative.

A reply to "Capitalist Praise For Anarcho-Syndicalism"

A critique of an "anarcho"-capitalist attempt to steal the term syndicalism (like anarchism and libertarian by redefining it away from what it historically means). Ironically, the attempt shows why "anarcho"-capitalism is just not anarchist.

Capitalism in crisis, again!

Some comments on the continuing crisis in the stock markets, discussing how economic ideology contributed to it and how capitalism has always been based on socialising costs and risk while privatising profits.

The Zapatistas, anarchism and 'Direct democracy'

The Zapatista rebellion of 1994 has become the 90's equivalent of the Cuban and Nicaraguan revolutions. It has excited the imagination of a layer of active young. The balaclava and pipe toting Marcos is becoming the same sort of visual icon that the bearded and beret wearing Ché was 30 years earlier. And perhaps it is this similarity that has scared the organised anarchist movement into comparative silence on the on-going rebellion in Chiapas?

Sacrifices are required to appease Capital, says Bank of England…

Why working class people need not pay the price of the mistakes of capital.

Anarchism & the Chinese Revolution - video and audio

A 60 minute recording of a talk and discussion on the Chinese revolution and the Chinese anarchist movement. It's available here as google video, mp4 and mp3 formats, the first two are preferred as the viewer will then be able to see the images referenced during the talk. 

 

Hypocrisy, elitism and communism

An analysis of the attacks on French public sector strikes in 2007. The irony of supporters of capitalism urging a levelling down, at least for workers.
