Hi guys! What do you think of Bookchin?
And are there still great anarchist theorists right now?

I thought there were some great ideas in his earlier anarchist writings, especially his introduction of ecological ideas. The later libertarian-municipalist politics I think are a backwards step, however. What do you think of him?

I see Bookchin as a revival for anarchist thought ...

Otherwise, I'm always looking for scientists who are interested in anarchism ...

Well, Bookchin has some influence in my ideas. However, I reject some of them or I prefer a different approach. For example (and this has more to do with communalists/lib municipalists), many libertarian municipalists see municipal elections as a tool and have a closet reformist point of view regarding municipal politics.

Ah ... However, I still see him as a revolutionary who organizes change before embarking on his fight against the state by creating a certain form of cohesion of the anarchist movement at the local level before fighting against State which is at a higher level ... But hey, I'm not based on his writings but rather on what I understood from a video on youtube ... (lol)

I dislike Bookchin.
I appreciate his environmentalism, because I too am an environmentalist and love science.
But Bookchin’s not an anarchist.

He even said so himself - he broke away from anarchism in 1995 and said, among other things, that anarchists “misunderstand power”

His ideology of Libertarian Municipalism means city-states with direct democracy — it isn’t anarchist.

A city-state is still a state, as it still has laws, lawmaking, law enforcement, etc. Some who get to impose their will and others who are imposed upon;

A city is still such a large entity that in order to make decisions at the city scale we are forced to delegate power - Bookchin promises “face-to-face” democracy, but delivers a system where neighborhood assemblies elect deputies who serve on councils.

And of course, direct democracy is tyranny of the majority. Domination of the strong over the weak by way of “strength-in-numbers.”

Bookchin even rejected consensus decision-making processes, which are just about the only voting methods that can allow a large group to make decisions by voting *without* committing tyranny by the majority.

Consensus is the least-libertarian form of social arrangement I’d accept and he wouldn’t even go there.

Bookchin also split the Anarchist movement very badly by labeling his critics as bogeyman “lifestyle anarchists,” deriding individualist anarchism as “juvenile antics”.

This is stuff Bookchin did openly and proudly - it’s all outlined in this article by a friend of Bookchin’s outlining his break with anarchism in his own words:

Neighbourhood assemblies would be face-to-face, no; as long as the delegates cannot unilaterally enforce their decisions and/or are recallable by said assemblies, I'm not seeing the problem?

Stroznia wrote:And of course, direct democracy is tyranny of the majority. Domination of the strong over the weak by way of “strength-in-numbers.”

That depends on what the majority claims jurisdiction over; I'm not sure it can be both without significant equivocation on "democracy".

Thank you for answering me,
it feels good to be surrounded by brothers and sisters' "anar" ... xD

it will take me time to read your article in addition to your long comment ... :p

New poll up on the subject of a latest embassy request

Also, as we haven’t been getting many embassy requests lately I’d like to start sending out a few of our own.

Does anybody have suggestions for places you’d like an embassy with?

For example I would like to send one to Hippy Haven, a region Strřznia dwelled in for some time years back.
