Thanks, Steven! Wow, it's been a long time since you made that reply. Sorry, I've just not visited libcom in ages! That's a great idea about posting the videos in the library. I will definitely be doing that. smile

Sike: Aw, that's a shame they left out such a hugely important part of the Makhnovist story! sad Well, thanks for telling it here. Even though it's a very plain description of the events I feel somewhat moved by reading it. They were real heroes.

Here’s a vid from the YouTube channel’Piper Thompkins’(formerly Social Revolution)...

https://youtu.be/lntzdSCcizk

Their material is fairly dry but it’s good educational stuff for not so learned commies such as myself.
Btw, they post on Libcom under the handle of ‘Ivysyn’.
I’m sure some support would be appreciated.

Hi Noah!

You should check out a French animation series called 'L'Ecole du Chat Noir' (which means: School of the black cat). English subtitles are available for the videos.

https://youtu.be/IoqcWoZU5to

The first episode is an introduction to the subject, and the second episode is entitled 'L'Anarchie c'est pas ce que tu crois' (Anarchy, it's not what you believe).

The third episode will be released in the coming month, and it's focus will be on religion !! This series is extremely informative and also very beautiful with stop motion animation. Hope you enjoy !

Here's a video I saw about the video game Dwarf Fortress and Anarchocommunism,
https://youtu.be/yup3hkmBj2Y

I actually didn't know anything about the game but her video and argument was easy to watch and follow.

also I've discovered a channel that reads out anarchist audio books in Esperanto

I don't see any links,

Recently I managed to find some time to upgrade my video editor and learn some editing and effects tricks and more importantly some shortcuts. So I've been practising with glitch effects

Here's a version of the music video I made with a friends remix of Mother Anarchy

Oh my fucking god! Seriously everyone, you HAVE to watch this. It is spectacularly good! Even for the aesthetic alone it’s well worth watching. I’ve only watched the intro episode but I know the content will be great. An absolute copper bottomed winner!

I've been subscribed for months but never took the time to watch. The two episodes are very good the production values are high and the information and presentation are great even with youtube captions.

I'm glad the next episode is coming out soon I'd feared the channel had been dormant.

Though I do see they have a lot of content on their soundcloud.

I watched this the other day. Really well argued. Definitely worth sharing with people who think that "leftist" parties will ever get us to socialism, or people who spend their time/energy on campaigning for a party or candidate.

This is FANTASTIC! I watched all three videos. I literally felt awe and gratitude at the beauty of it and the thought of all the love, time, and hard work that goes into making these.

Cairde, are you involved in this project in any way?

Here's a great video by Another Slice about how to organize your workplace. Really good editing and use of humor, clearly explained, the right balance between thorough and concise.

A fellow I know who used to be in the old Class War (I think second version, it was the one that worked with the old Anarchist Youth Network and he was at a meeting to raise funds to set up libcom.org) keeps getting his account information shared on far right message boards so he's moved onto youtube and given improvised vlogs a try.

Saw his vid on Antifa the other day - it was good stuff but he needs to keep still! His swaying around was disorienting!!!

They put it in their own thread but here’s the new video from Lucky Black Cat

https://youtu.be/OnKUVY4sQ0g

The channel is doing really well, this vid has had 2k views in a little over 48 hours. A lot of effort has gone into both the production and the circulation of the vid, so if you would like to help out, please could you share it and interact with in on YouTube? Thanks!

Thanks for sharing it, Noah! smile

I felt it would be too much of me to share it on two threads but since you did it already, I will post it again here with an embedded link so everyone can see the thumbnail image which I think is the best part of the video, lol. No need to watch, people, you've already seen the best of it.

Oh, and to plug another channel, Anarchopac is definitely one of the smartest, most knowledgeable political youtubers. She's read a ton about the history of anarchism, Marxism, and class struggle, she's read a ton of theory, she really knows her shit.

Here's her channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3FD64RRsrCLpiZNkq7ZkSg

but I think the best introduction to her is this interview she did on Revolutionary Left Radio https://revolutionaryleftradio.libsyn.com/in-dialogue-with-anarchism-ana...

I also recommend following her on twitter. Quality. https://twitter.com/anarchopac

A friend sent me a link to this

Alan Rickman - Revolutionary Witness: The Preacher (1989)
https://youtu.be/nXZqq2smuHs

Alan Rickman acts out a soliloquy about the enrages priest Jacques Roux

Quote:
Who are still the oppressors? The rich. Who are still the oppressed? The poor. Your slavery is their liberty. Your poverty is their prosperity.

Quote:
"Does it follow that I reject all authority? No. But I always keep my hat on in its presence."(edited)
"In the matter of bread, I consult a baker; in the matter of boots, a bootmaker; a house, a builder; for special knowledge, I apply to a specialist. But I don't allow the baker, the builder, or the bootmaker to impose their authority over me. I listen to them with the respect they merit--if any--but I keep the right to judge, criticize, and censure. Why should we treat politicians of any stripe, royal or revolutionary, any different?"

That was pretty good, not to long and was clear throughout.

@Reddebrek - Some good quotes there. I opened the video and watched the first 30 seconds. Holy visually intense! Will save the tab for later watching.

@Lugius: Posting the top comment on your video since it's quite enticing

Quote:
nice to see an explanation of anarcho syndicalism that focusses more on how anarchist decison making actually works in practice rather than dwell on philosophical/theoretical aspects.

The Belarusian Anarchist I shared a while back has setup a separate channel for English language content in the hopes of reaching a wider audience.

First time I've ever successfully embedded a video. Accusations of boomer are now null and void!

I thought it was a double post at first and I was about to accuse you of being a boomer. But I see now the second one was just a brag post on your transcendence of boomerdom. Although I'd like to congratulate you I'm afraid I can't, as bragging about being able to do basic embedding is a pretty boomer thing to do.

Oh yeah? Well fuck you - everybody knows that you millennials are the biggest boomers around.
All may not be lost though - as the saying goes, ‘if there’s hope, it must lie in the zoomers’.
Now try that one on your pianola!
