. I have plenty of questions to all you ancoms out there, however I am not sure whether this is is the place to ask them and I should instead make a topic listing down my questions if I cannot find answers from previous topics and articles.

Definitively make a new thread for questions, if you can't find answer to them elsewhere here and the Anarchist FAQ.

Welcome! That's a great idea. Here are the complete issues of Classe Operaia which contain a few texts by Tronti. I can send you the PDF if you're interested, although it's a rather big file (200 MB).

If you could translate what Sergio Blogna wrote about logistics in the 1970s, that would be great. Been trying to find an english translation for some time, but only even find snippets.

Howdy do, long time lurker, first time commenter. I tried (and might've) set up other accounts before when I wanted to discuss but had IP blocked or something, made passwords while drunk, and/or assumed that I registered a common anarchist nom de guerre that someone else already took. Anyway, I finally made it.

Hello, I live in the UK. Been unemployed most of my life and consequently drifted from mainstream thinking (anyway you might define that) and toward what I view as a better way of living. I don't know if I'd identify right now as an anarchist or a communist or a libertarian. I am a member of the Socialist Party in the Uk, which I joined to express solidarity as I live in the sticks and hopefully gain supprot if I should need it dealing with the system.

I despise the system, I despise our politicians and find the whole of our culture (for the most part) alieanating baffling and trite. Unfortunately for me that makes me sound arrogant. But it's hard not to sound that way I find.

Unfortuntely I find the few friends I have in the real world are not politically minded and are turning toward right wing thinking; one of whom is now using the N word and seems happy calling muslims 'ragheads' for example.

Hi, I came across this site as its the only place I found a link to this magazine of my brothers'
'Radio is my Bomb' by Hooligan press 1987. Unfortunately I cannot post a reply on that page.

Is anyone interested in having it, I don't want to just throw it away.
Thanks

Hi naisy, welcome to the site.

Were you sure you were logged in when you tried to post a comment? I just had a look myself and the comment box seemed to be working alright.

If you're still having trouble, try PMing one of the admins. You could try Steven, who left the post above you on this thread.

Good luck!

EDIT: It occurred to me you might have just found the .pdf hosted on libcom and, in that case, you wouldn't be able to post any comments. Try here: https://libcom.org/library/radio-my-bomb-diy-manual-pirates

Thanks

if you have a hardcopy and no one here wants it you could always donate it to a radical bookshop/library, like Freedom or Housman's in London, or The Sparrows Nest in Nottingham or the 1 in 12 Club in Bradford

He was probably feeling chilled when he posted this after one of his keepers wanked him off.

Hello. I'm Marxist.

I'm located in the Netherlands. I don't belong to any particular current of Marxism, but I'm to the left of Leninism. I previously was an anarchist.

Nonostante sia ancora inverno, con cappotti, sciarpe e cappelli, non possiamo fare a meno di pensare alle vacanze, all’estate, al mare e alle serate di festa che lidi e organizzatori di eventi ci regalano sotto un cielo stellato e il mare all’orizzonte.
La pelle abbronzata, le risate tra amici un mojito in mano e proprio non possono mancare i classici oggetti starlight che decorano e illuminano le notti d’estate.
Sarà che siamo tutti più rilassati o sarà la brezza marina, ma proprio non riesco ad immaginare una festa senza questi gadget fluorescenti.
Occhiali in varie forme, bastoncini o bastoni, braccialetti starlight fluo, orecchini, collane, anelli, miscelatori, pins, trottole, palloncini led, e tantissimi altri oggetti che rendono le nostre serate indimenticabili e magiche.
Tra i fornitori di fiducia di questi simpatici oggetti vi consiglio: http://www.braccialettistarlightfluo.com/
Hanno i migliori gadget a prezzi davvero economici, inoltre se ordini online ricevi la merce in meno di 72 ore dal lunedì al venerdì.
Ma ritornando all’estate, i gadget fluo non possono che essere associati con la musica e con le attività (ludiche, lavorative e anche di intrattenimento sportivo).
Recentemente ho scoperto che questi gadget vengono usati anche per il nuoto sincronizzato, infatti le squadre si servono dei gadget fluorescenti per creare coreografie suggestive in acqua. Dato che sono oggetti che non necessitano batterie o elettricità possono essere usati benissimo anche sott’acqua, non solo per il nuoto sincronizzato ma anche per le immersioni subacquee per illuminare il fondo del mare.
Inoltre, indagando un po’ su questi oggetti, ho scoperti che vanno a ruba in discoteche ma anche in spettacoli teatrali e di danza che, come nel caso del nuoto sincronizzato, si servono dei gadget starlight per dare alla coreografia un tocco magico che ne aumenta l’effetto suggestivo e quindi le emozioni che si trasmettono al pubblico che osserva.
Davvero geniali vero? Per essere così semplici ed economici hanno un sacco di modi d’utilizzo che si scoprono solo indagando oppure se stai nel settore. Infatti non sapevo assolutamente dell’esistenza di una vera e propria gamma di cosmetici e vernici starlight fluo che possono essere usate sia per feste come carnevale, serate in discoteca, feste a tema, halloween, ecc. ma anche per eventi e feste per bambini, dato che la casa madre inglese ne garantisce la non tossicità.
Comunque, tutto questo per dire che ho sempre associato i braccialetti starlight fluo all’estate, ma scopro che invece sono usatissimi anche nei mesi più freddi, infatti gli organizzatori di eventi che lavorano per locali o discoteche fanno grandi scorte dei gadget starlight in modo da poter pianificare serate e feste per tutto l’anno.

Hello everyone.

I'm an anarchocommunist. I also like other, similar schools of thought like council communism and anarcho-syndicalism, but I call myself an anarchocommunist because I feel it succinctly makes clear to people who aren't familiar with this kind of politics that I neither mean anarchism in the sense of orderlessness nor communism in the sense of tyranny.

I'm interested in disability politics such as the Black Triangle Campaign, cypherpunk and pirate politics.

On the subject of cypherpunk, it seems like libcom.org has chosen to make life difficult for Tor users. How disappointing. I hope this is corrected at some point.

Hi and welcome, altarego. I'm afraid I've got no idea it what you mean by this though. Certainly it's not something we have done deliberately. Feel free to start a thread in our feedback forum to discuss further. Thanks

Just dropping in to say hello. Capitalism is the bane of my existence. I used to be a Marxist, but now I'm an Anarchist Communist. In addition, Animal liberation/Veganism is something that I find to be very important.

Welcome! , animal lib is not generally considered very important on Libcom but there are a few of us that feel it is very important indeed and that it has significance in relation to revolutionary politics.
Hope you enjoy the site!

Hello,

I found this page after typing "Primitivism" into a search bar. After realizing that it was an actual thing and not just a made up word, I dug deeper. I found this site, along with many other that peak my interest. I had never expected to find such a level of organization and common thinking on the internet.
