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

Discusses the meaning of “revolution” and whether it is possible. Should revolutionaries support reforms? Should we make demands on the state? Must a revolution be violent? 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
international / economy / review Monday June 20, 2005 19:01 by Wayne Price   text 10 comments (last - sunday july 03, 2005 06:22)
Michael Alber and Robin Hahnel have thought out how an economy might function which is managed by its people rather than by either private capitalists or bureaucrats--an economy managed through bottom-up democratic cooperation, rather than by either the market or centralized planning. They call this "participatory economics," or "parecon" for short. Their model involves coordination by councils of workers and consumers to produce an economic plan. However, they have written little on the second issue. Having decided on a social goal, then what? Might it be possible to gradually, peacefully, and incrementally evolve through small positive changes from capitalism to antiauthoritarian socialism? read full story / add a comment
