Hi. Gib government position and I gib whiskey.

What kinda books is everyone reading lately?

I finished Vol. II and III of Richard J Evans history of the Third Reich and am nearly finished with the first volume. I recommend these books to anyone interested in political power and history (aka all of you!), I have one word to describe them: magistral. Evans is extremely good at creating a strong sense of contextual understanding of 12 years of a nation, raising voices you would never get to hear in most histories. Indeed in one instance he sent me down a book spree of learning about the treatment of the disabled, another you’re down a spree of books on the Nazis in the balkans. Every section is rich like this. Also the first volumes similarities to be found between the rise of the Nazis and today’s hard right (and as we know, “center”) are incredibly striking.

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."

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?

Hello comrades,

Quick update on the discord server. We now have a channel where we can share online leftist literature with one another. If you haven't joined the server yet, you should definitely consider it!

Strasserist Swarije has been kicked out of the region.

We are anti-fascist.

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. :)

Post by Stonialad suppressed by a moderator.

I apologize for what I said in the Discord.
