In the second episode of The Enragés, host Joel Williamson discusses with Eric Fleischmann their recent piece for C4SS “The End Is the Beginning: Abolition as Communicative Creation” (Renamed “The End is the Beginning: Anarchist Abolitionism as Communicative Creation”). The conversation spans from the juxtaposition of violence and communication to the influence of violent institutions upon people to the importance of the dialectical method to the existing and potential alternatives to statism and capitalism and more.
Eric Fleischmann (he/they), is a left-libertarian anarchist currently working around cooperative food systems. He is a close affiliate of the Center for a Stateless Society, the self-described “logistics gremlin” for The Enragés, and a co-organizer of & contributor to upcoming books such as Defiant Insistence: David Graeber, Anarchist, Anthropologist, Fellow Worker (1961-2020) and TOTAL ABOLITION: Police, Prisons, Borders, Empire.
Correction: Keith Preston did not used to write for C4SS. Previously, C4SS was, at times, loosely associated with Preston and Attack the System. This is no longer the case.
