The Krisis Group: a mountain gives birth to a mouse – Charles Reeve

In this review essay written in 2003 for Le Monde Libertaire on the occasion of publication of the first French edition of the “Manifesto Against Labor”, Charles Reeve discusses the Krisis Group’s critique of capitalism and concludes that there is “nothing new under the sun” here, that the Krisis Group presents its critique of reformism as if it were a novel discovery when in fact it is the heritage of “the revolutionary currents of Marxism and anarchism”—which the Group does not bother to mention—and that its proposals to implement a “break with the categories of labor” are “neo-reformist” and not so different from the positions of the civil society movement it ridicules.
