Hi. Gib government position and I gib whiskey.
They sound excellent, I will remember the name.
I've been reading Spinoza's "Ethics", alongside Deleuze's book on Spinoza. I've really enjoyed unpacking his metaphysics and grasping an entirely new perspective of things. There are some interesting links with Nietzsche and Stirner, which make an interesting foil for my own political and ethical ideas.
Among newer currents of anarchism there is a fair bit of misunderstanding over the nature of anarcho-syndicalism. First of all there is the idea that anarcho-syndicalism is an end goal in itself, a kind of direct-democratic government by the unions; and secondly there is the notion that anarcho-syndicalists limit their ambitions to economic democratisation, such that existing socio-economic processes are merely reorganised around the principle of self-management, and otherwise left as they are. The reality is rather different:
"Anarcho-syndicalists are libertarian communists. Without this communist perspective, anarcho-syndicalism would amount to little more than democratic trade unionism for a self-managed capitalism. Communists recognise that capitalism is not simply an undemocratic mode of management, but a mode of production. Making it more democratic doesn’t make it any more responsive to human needs so long as money, commodity production and exchange persist. Consequently [...] our notion of revolution is not simply the taking over of production in order to self-manage it democratically, but a simultaneous process of communisation – restructuring social production around human need.
This entails not the liberation of the working class envisaged by Rocker, but our abolition as a class and with it the negation of all classes. It also implies not the democratisation of work but its abolition as a separate sphere of human activity. Much activity - waged or not - that is potentially rewarding in itself is reduced to repetitive, alienating work by the requirements of capital accumulation. We don’t want democratically self-managed alienation, but its abolition. Furthermore - and this is of practical import to anarcho-syndicalists – whole sectors of the economy need to be abolished altogether, while those that remain need to be radically transformed in terms of the division of labour and the nature of productive activity itself."
Quoted from 'Strategy and struggle - anarcho-syndicalism in the 21st century'
Kassimo - I hear nothing but good things about Deleuze consistently - so many of my anarcho-friends are obsessed with him, and especially his take on Spinoza.
I was already into Spinoza from learning about him in High School but never really thought of him as an anarchist philosopher.
How would you explain his usefulness to you, politically?
I'd also love to hear your take on Deleuze. He seems good but I wanna know what makes people go Gaga for him
I was going to ask the same thing!
My issue has always been how does this way of thinking change my understanding of our social world?
Stroznia, I am going to reply to you, just finding the time because there is a lot I would like to say, and I am very slow at writing.
On another note, I am going to be away for the next three weeks, so I won't be as active. I will still check in when I have internet access. :)
I apologize for what I said in the Discord.
