humanaesfera

What happened in June 2013 in Brazil? - From the incipient material community to its reactionary destruction in the ideological pseudo-community

After five years, we revisited this historic event that marked a shift in Brazilian history (unfortunately, a shift for the worse).

Against the (new and old) familism - down with the family! - humanaesfera

A critique of the family as well as of the ideas of reforming it. The article also deals with the changes of the family in capitalist society, in which there is an increasingly real subsumption of human reproduction to capital.

Huge truck drivers strike in Brazil in May 2018

Initially, capitalists of the freight sector tried to use the strike to bargain in the name of their interests in the inter-capitalist competition against the oil companies and the government. There was doubt whether it was lockout or strike. But then the strike went out of control. When the capitalists of the freight sector made an agreement with the government to end it, the workers continued it and the strike increased even more.

Telegraphic communist theory - humanaesfera

A telegraphic (i.e. brief, concise and direct) presentation of communist theory drawn from overwhelming evidence that can be verified by anyone in his everyday life everywhere in the world (as opposed to those stupid theories drawn from doctrinal and scholastic traditions). This is a theory that any unknown person on the street, work, queues, bus, train, metro will understand and develop better than ourselves. Concepts: private property, capital, proletariat, class struggle and communism.

A brief history of the state - humanaesfera

How did the state become distinct from the castes and presented itself as a neutral entity that hovers and contrasts with a so-called civil society? What is the relation between the emergence of capitalist power over the world and the emergence of absolutist monarchies and nation-states? This short article presents a synthetic look at the history of the emergence of the modern state.

The illusion of the precapitalist gift - humanaesfera

What was the precapitalist gift? In what concrete material circumstances did it make sense? Here, we briefly want to show that the precapitalist conditions which made the gift to make sense are not only without return, but are also absolutely undesirable today. In communist society the enjoyment of the productive forces can neither be a gift nor an exchange of commodities.

A dissection of the metaphysics of scarcity - humanaesfera

Some believe that, regardless of concrete praxis, scarcity is an inherent characteristic of time and space, as a metaphysical foundation (they generally use the thermodynamic concept of "entropy" to substantiate this idea). Thus, they suppose that, in this entropic universe, competition for what is scarce guides every specific being - and likewise human beings and societies - making the social form of scarcity, private property (and hence class society, labor, state and capital), have an eternal, cosmic, immutable foundation. In this text, we will try to criticize this metaphysics from a specifically philosophical, physical and anthropological point of view.

"Middle class": masochistic repressive paranoid moralism - humanaesfera

An attempt to analyze how the material conditions of existence explain the reactionary psychology that prevails in the working class insofar as it is crushed as a class and reproduces exploitation.

Universally interconnected/interdependent conditions of existence - humanaesfera

This article seeks to demonstrate that defending "identities", "nations", "ethnic zones", "communities", "countries", "autarchies", "autonomous territories" or "self-managed areas” is the same as claim the establishment of new private properties and, consequently, new capitals and new states. The article also addresses the issue of the irruption of the world human community which suppresses private property worldwide.

Strike and free production - humanaesfera

When most workers are in the service sector, does the striking tactic make sense if the proletariat use such services in their daily lives? How can we encourage class solidarity in this case?
