Come dovrebbero regolarsi gli anarchici rivoluzionari in caso di un golpe di destra che rovesci un governo eletto? Oggi come oggi, è letteralmente una questione di vita o di morte per gli anarchici rivoluzionari trovare le modalità per partecipare alle lotte popolari, restando fermi sui nostri principi e dicendo la verità ai lavoratori. read full story / add a comment

What should anarchists do when an elected government is overturned by a right-wing coup, as happened in Venezuela or Nepal? It is typical of capitalism that its gains of political democracy are shaky at best. Countries go through cycles of democracy and dictatorship and back again read full story / add a comment

The crisis over North Korea has only reminded us of the worldwide danger of nuclear war. Anarchists must oppose all development of nuclear bombs, by the US but also by an oppressed nation (such as North Korea) and even by a Federation of Anarchist Communes. read full story / add a comment

Holloway is right in saying that the oppressed should not build a new state, but wrong in denying that the workers should use revolutionary power to get rid of the old state and the capitalist system. We need a stateless federation of communes and councils. read full story / add a comment

La guerra entre Israel (con un total apoyo de los EEUU) y Hizbulah (así como del resto del Líbano) ha terminado –temporalmente. “Temporalmente”, pues ninguno de los grandes temas han sido zanjados, particularmente, el rol colonialista de Israel en el Medio Oriente. Mientras, la guerra entre los EEUU e Irak se ha intensificado, al igual que la guerra civil sectaria iraquí. La guerra de los EEUU y Afganistán continúa. Y hay bastante evidencia de que el gobierno de Bush quiere atacar Irán. La paz no anda a la vuelta de la esquina. read full story / add a comment

The war between Israel and Hezballah is temporarily over. The left has taken a range of positions on the Israeli-Lebanese war. Anarchists have opposed the U.S.-Israeli aggression, pointing out the reactionary nature of both sides in the war. However, many have tended to equate the two sides, to treat them as equally bad, and to call for opposing the war on both sides. While there is a good deal of confusion on this issue among anarchists, it is my impression that most have failed to support the oppressed against the oppressor in this war. read full story / add a comment

Anarchism has been challenged for its supposed lack of vision about post-revolutionary society. In particular, Michael Albert challenges the great anarchist Malatesta. Actually Malatesta did have a post-capitalist vision. it was not a formal model but a set of ideas which were to be developed through experimentation, flexibility, and pluralism. The highpoints of his political life are outlined. His ideas are contrasted with that of other great radicals. read full story / add a comment

The most important reason for studying the nature of the Soviet Union and similar states is the light it sheds on what we mean by anti-capitalism and socialism. . Whether we regard these states as socialist determines what we think is the alternative to capitalism. There are a great many radicals who are attracted to the model of the old Soviet Union or of Maoist China, who are impressed by Cuba today or by the Nepalese Maoists. Conversely, the establishments of Western capitalism have been glad to agree that the Soviet Union, China, Cuba, etc. are/were “socialist” and “communist.” They say, capitalism may have faults, but this is the only “anti-capitalist” alternative which ever was or ever could be. These three essays published on Anarkismo over the last three months by Wayne Price look at the true nature of these states. read full story / add a comment

The Soviet Union and similar states are analyzed as State Capitalist. These states had commodity production, the exploitation of the workers, and internal competition. It is not enough to collectivize property; it is necessary to abolish the capital-labor relationship. The program of state socialism invariably produces state capitalism in practice. read full story / add a comment

This part goes over the theories that Communist Party-ruled societies are neither pro-socialist nor capitalist but are a new kind of class society. These theories are correct in believing that the collective bureaucracy is a new ruling class but wrong in denying that these societies are a variety of capitalism. They raised questions about the nature of Fascism. Such theories bring out the need for participatory democracy and workers’ self-management. Part 1, What Do We Mean By Anti-Capitalism? can be found at read full story / add a comment

If anti-capitalists want an alternative to capitalism, we need to examine the nature of countries of the type of the Soviet Union. There are three groups of theories about them. One is the idea that these societies are socialist or “workers’ states.” This will be compared with the original libertarian goals of classless socialism. This is the first of a 3 part series. read full story / add a comment

Many antiauthoritarians oppose the aim of “taking power.” They advocate a gradual replacement of capitalism by alternate institutions. Alternately, Marxist-Leninists propose replacing the state by a new “workers’ state.” Instead revolutionary anarchists should advocate the goal of replacing the state by a federation of councils, but not by a new state. read full story / add a comment

Pro-organizational, class struggle, anarchism (including Platformism) advocates radically-democratic federations built on a revolutionary program. This is counterposed to anti-organizationalist anarchism and to the Leninist program of the centralized, monolithic, "vanguard" party. read full story / add a comment

The U.S. state deserves to lose in Iraq. The bigger the lose the better for Iraq and the rest of the world. Anarchists and other militants should focus our energies on opposing the U.S. This does not imply any political support for the leadership of the Iraqi resistance. It implies complete opposition to U.S. politicians who support capitalism and the war. Now updated with part 4 - The Anarchist position on national self-determination is ambiguous. Anarchists should support national self-determination (for Iraq and elsewhere) but NOT support nationalism. read full story / add a comment
