New pamphlet from the FdCA:

What A State To Be In

The Federazione dei Comunisti Anarchici is pleased to announce the launch of a new pamphlet in its "Studies for a Libertarian Alternative series, available for download from its website: What A State To Be In. This pamphlet examines the development of the modern State, its roles and functions. and was written by FdCA member Saverio Craparo.

Contents:

  • Introduction
  • The birth of the State and what came before it (Social relations under feudalism; The liberal State and rights; Progressive participation)
  • The 19th-century State and the birth of Anarchist theory
  • The evolution of the State (The State as entrepreneur; Control of the cycle; The direct management of capital; Welfare; From the primitive state to the modern State)
  • Ambiguities in the role of the State (The State in the revolution; The Number One Enemy; Collective functions and coercive functions)
  • A few groundrules

"A little history never hurt anyone! The beast that is the modern State was born over two centuries ago and was closely connected with the emergence of the bourgeoisie as the new dominant class. It is not by chance that a large part of the typical functions of the modern State owe their origins to revolutionary France in 1789. It is a good idea to examine the reasons behind this profound transformation of the power structures in society, which social relationships ceased to exist in order to make way for others, what effects all this had on class relations and, above all, how the domination of the emerging bourgeoisie came about."

imageHail the October Revolution Nov 07 by Melbourne Anarchist Communist Group 0 comments

The October Revolution in Russia was a momentous event and the Melbourne Anarchist Communist Group celebrates its centenary. The Soviets and the Factory Committees were great achievements of the working class and taking power was an even greater achievement. We are angered by the betrayal of the Revolution by Lenin and its total perversion by Stalin, but we are not disillusioned. Rather, we have learned lessons and work in the confident expectation that, if capitalism doesn’t destroy us in the meantime, there will be another revolution, and it will be worldwide. Unlike last time, workers won’t get taken in by the siren song of leaders who tell us fairy tales about a workers’ state. We won’t be fooled again.

imageBeyond May Day Parades: Building a Counter-Movement in Malaysia and Worldwide Apr 28 by Muttaqa Yushau Abdulra’uf, Sian Byrne, Warren McGregor and L 0 comments

Let us learn from our past struggles, in the USA and in Malaysia. May Day should be an occasion to reflect not jubilate, to engage not agonize, to demand not relent, and to organise, not complain. We need systemic change that can guarantee equality, fraternity, self-management and socialisation of the commonwealth, guided by a bottom–up approach to decision making. We need a labour movement that is multicultural and international, feminist, active in urban and rural struggles, and that prizes reason over superstition, justice over hierarchy, self-management over state power, international solidarity over nationalism. We need to fight for a universal human community, not parochialism and separatism. The organisational power and strategic location of the Malaysian union movement provides an excellent point of departure for building this counter-movement. This is our appeal and message as we celebrate this May Day, on the eve of dark days in which the storm clouds gather over humanity – but in which the light of hope of a better future can break through, if we arm ourselves with the correct ideas and approaches. May Day began as an example of globalisation-from-below. Let us rally to it. Let us take back its original vision: liberty, equality, unity.

imageWorld War One and 100 Years of Counter-Revolution Aug 08 by Mark Kosman 0 comments

In 1871, Karl Marx wrote that governments use war as a fraud, a ‘humbug, intended to defer the struggle of the classes’. In 1914, that fraud was so effective that not only most workers but also most Marxists supported their respective nation’s rush to war. Ever since then, governments have used war to defer class struggle and prevent revolution. But this strategy cannot last forever.[1]

imageInitial thoughts on Egypt Feb 07 by Jan Makandal 4 comments

All too often, we on the Left attempt to prematurely analyze objective reality based on what we see as the expression of an internal contradiction, without thoroughly investigating, understanding or appropriating the internal factors, even at the level of perceptual knowledge. [Italiano]
