Thesis 1: Nihilist anarchism is a confrontation with the symptom.

Anarchy: A word I have chosen from within my lexicon to describe a place from which all movements derive. Upon admittance to the symbolic order, we are forever barred from admittance into the order of anarchy. Anarchism: A metaphorical/metonymical discourse that allows for the discussion of anarchy from within the symbolic order. Whereas first-order anarchy […]

Psychologies from a Revolutionary Perspective

[This is taken from a letter in response to a comrade that wants to explore the importance of social-psychology for anarchist theory] History (and time in general) are of great importance to social-psychology, in my opinion. To me, this not only means evolution (the history of life), but social history, political history, etc. If a […]

The Social-Psychological Revolution

What sort of revolution are we really after? We have called it the “Social Revolution” before, in opposition to a political revolution (where we would merely change the political and economic systems). This is a good start, but I believe that anarchist theory has become much more than even a social revolution. Surely, we seek […]

Sexualism and Sexism (response to an Anarchy101 question)

This was a question asked on http://www.Anarchy101.org and it is a question I think is important, so I am posting both the question and my answer to it (which reveals why I think it’s an important question): Q: How does a male express sexual interest in a female without reproducing patriarchy or sounding artificial? “Many […]

Capitalism from the Perspective of an Artist

Capitalism from the perspective of an artist… There are many ways to critique the capitalist mode of production, the consumer society, its spectacles, and the stultification of the spirit one suffers under its logic. While I have found most of these critiques intellectually sound, my heart is not touched by them. Not by Marx, Debord, […]

I have found my Art!

Ah! What joy! I’ve managed to discover in the Wretch some sort of worm hole into other spaces, with different dimensions, and best of all… I have been able to find some of the things I was able to create before I wound up here… [enter search terms here] (SEARCH!) ^see the worm hole?^ yeah… […]

Drawing a line between love and (anti)politics

What’s a book? Is it a self-realization of an individual’s life in the context of living others? Or is it self-realization as a closed compartment, for example an “insurgent,” a category that remains separate from all the other separate categories? – Sophie Back from the Mountains In typical fashion, almost a month late – over […]

Pieces of a Roast – Part III

Finally a third one from a friend in OR ARAGORN! – Avatar of Clarity As the crisis of industrial civilization intensifies and the Biosphere becomes ever more fragmented, it’s clearer and clearer that those resisting the death march of Empire could use some truly radical analysis.

Cops Shot Six People this Week in the Puget Sound Region, Killing Five: Some Ways to Get Involved From the Artic Circle Collective… It’s been a week of disbelief. We all know that cops kill with impunity, but their recent spree has unfolded faster than we can even comment on it. Posting articles on the […]

pieces of a roast – Part II

Here is a second roast contributed by John Zerzan from Eugene Oregon Aragorn! Subversive Trickster or Postmodern Confusionist? Who is this larger (much larger) than life figure? How should we appreciate and applaud his bizarre term of confounding us? He who laughs at such pedestrian notions as commonly accepted definitions, historical fact, and consistent vision––what […]

Non-Sectarian means incoherent – editorial September 2010

Anonymous commenting means both that there are plenty of problematic ideas and ways of expressing ideas (problematic or not) to comment on AND that ill-thought-out criticism can easily get lost in better criticism. It also means that people share their ideas with relatively little fear of censure or abjuration. A recent poll*, the following comments, […]
