Django's thoughts on Gilles Dauvé's For a world without moral order.

For a world without moral order - Gilles Dauvé

Gilles Dauvé undertakes a radical critique of 'morality' and social mores and presents communism as a 'world without moral order'. We do not agree with much of it but reproduce it for reference.

Re-visiting the east ... and popping in at Marx's - Gilles Dauvé

Construction of the Berlin Wall

Apart from North Korea and Cuba, no country calls itself socialist any more. So why bother about old debates on the nature of the USSR? Since capitalism rules the world, what else is there to know?! A great deal.

Gilles Dauvé critically examines the idea that previous revolutions failed due to them viewing communism as being the affirmation of labour as opposed to being anti-work.

Letter on animal liberation - Gilles Dauvé

This is a letter sent by French readers to the authors of Beasts of Burden.

This pamphlet has the merit of addressing a vital question: If communism is to transform the whole of daily life, it can't leave out our relation to animals and the way we eat. Beasts of Burden forces to rethink the whole "primitivist" debate. We hope to tackle this some day.
