The Coming Insurrection: An identity-based construction and existential alternative – Alain C.

A 2009 critique of the sensational anarchist best-seller, The Coming Insurrection, in which the author claims that it is not its “ideas” or “worldview” that are what is most important about the book, but rather the fact that it is essentially an appeal for an identity-based politics, a “permanent drunkenness of the Ego” that postulates an abstract, socially undifferentiated “being” that is supposed to find itself at home in a paradise worshiping its “fetish”, “identity”, and the author concludes that the total elimination of this harmful tendency is “one of the goals of a communist revolution”.

The Catalonian affair – Miguel Amorós

A December 2017 post-mortem on the Catalonian independence movement, its origins in the ruling classes of Catalonia, its social base among the middle classes, its goals, its tactical mistakes, its manipulation of the mass psychology of political and media catharsis, and most importantly, its tragic attraction for the pathetic remnants of the anarchist movement of the region, who flocked to the movement with the intention of furthering their identity and social issues, but only demonstrated their bankruptcy and decomposition with respect to their forebears who knew that nationalism was an enemy and fought it tooth and nail.

Sustaining the anarchist movement in a foreign country does not work

We wrote this text as a response to „The Kurdish people should get involved in and support campaigns on Local and National issues“ from Zaher Baher. We hope the experience of the migrants from our movement will prove useful for our comrades from other countries.
