Di William Gillis. Originale pubblicato l’otto agosto 2019 con il titolo Anti-State Responses to Terrorism. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. Un’altra settimana e un altro attacco terroristico misogino e/o del nazionalismo bianco. Si incitano a vicenda, formano vasti movimenti, ecosistemi, reti di cellule.

Anti-State Responses to Terrorism
Another week, another misogynist and/or white nationalist terrorist attack. They’re urging each other on, they’re forming broad movements, ecosystems, networks of cells. The Base. Atomwaffen. The Rise Above Movement. American Identity Movement. Hammerskin Nation. Wolves of Vinland. European Kindred. Proud Boys. The names and factions proliferate. Hordes congregate online to cheer the latest atrocity and…

Il Male della Disuguaglianza
Di Gary Chartier. Originale pubblicato il 22 gennaio 2016 con il titolo What’s Wrong with Inequality? Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. A credere ai cosiddetti esperti, sembra quasi che tutto quest’odio verso la disuguaglianza sia frutto dell’invidia e di una certa ignoranza sul funzionamento dell’economia. Una ragione in più per non credere ai cosiddetti esperti. Il…
Agorà o Supermercato?
Come ridare vita alla fiera del libro anarchica Di William Gillis. Originale pubblicato il 21 marzo 2019 con il titolo The Mall or the Agora? Revitalizing the Anarchist Bookfair. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. La fiera del libro rappresenta uno dei momenti migliori per un anarchico. Una fiera del libro ha una struttura gerarchica evidente. C’è…
Evitare gli Eccessi di Violenza e Pacifismo
Di Zachary Woodman. Originale pubblicato il 30 aprile 2019 con il titolo Avoiding the Excesses of Violence and Pacifism. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. Gli anarchici sono facilmente irritabili, anzi l’irritazione è forse ciò che spinge ad essere anarchici. Gli anarchici sono contro la politica convenzionale, come tutte le frange, e questo crea risonanza. Le due…
May Day Poetry Feature
First off, I want to thank everyone who answered the call and submitted poems for our first ever May poetry feature! I’ll admit I was a little scared about going off the beaten path here, but you all delivered, and it’s been a real pleasure to review the poems we’ve received. I also want to…
Avoiding the Excesses of Violence and Pacifism
We anarchists are usually very good at being edgy, and edginess is one of the personality traits that probably attracted many of us to anarchism. Anarchists, like any fringe movement, need to counter-signal against the political mainstream in order to remain relevant. These two things are not necessarily bad; an edgy predisposition enables you more…
Call for Poems: May Day 2019
Poetry has a long history in the anarchist tradition. It is often through poetry that we find ways to say the things we can’t say with prose, whether for fear or simply because they can’t be expressed properly that way. Fits of emotion are a part of radical politics, and for many it is these…
Pacifismo e Inerzia
Politicamente morti Di Black Cat. Originale pubblicato il 22 marzo 2019 con il titolo Pacifism and the Pacifistic: a Tale of the Politically Dead. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. Ci sono ancora, purtroppo, anche tra gli attivisti di sinistra, persone inerti, pacifisti ad oltranza. Ovvero, persone non solo intenzionalmente, esplicitamente pacifiste: tutti i pacifisti sono tali….
Insurrection in Omelas
In Ursula K Le Guin’s classic short “The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas” she considers a prosperous and happy society whose success is somehow purchased through a dark bargain — the torture and abject immiseration of a single child. Despite the positive good won for the many, a few starry-eyed children of Omelas refuse…
Come il Governo Putin Tratta gli Anarchici Russi
Di Citizen Ilya. Originale pubblicato il 23 marzo 2019 con il titolo How Putin’s Government Deals With Russian Anarchists. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. Se seguite ciò che sta accadendo in Russia, probabilmente sapete cosa stanno passando attivisti politici e persone dell’opposizione. La dittatura putiniana si basa sulla tortura e il carcere per chiunque non condivida…
How Putin’s Government Deals With Russian Anarchists
If you follow the news about Russia, then you probably know what’s happening right now with opposition and political activists. Putin’s dictatorship focuses on torture and imprisonment of everyone who disagrees with authoritarian anti-social politics. If somebody is struggling against total poverty and unfairness, then they will face repression from  government structures such as FSB…
Pacifism and the Pacifistic: a Tale of the Politically Dead
Sadly, there are still some people — people within the activist left, even, who are pacifistic. When I describe someone as pacifistic, I do not only mean that they are intentional, explicit pacifists — though, yes, all pacifists are pacifistic. By ‘pacifistic’ I don’t mean that they are explicit pacifists, but that they are irrationally…
The Mall or the Agora? Revitalizing the Anarchist Bookfair
Anarchist bookfairs are one of the most interesting features of anarchist life. A bookfair is immediately recognizable as hierarchical. There are the booksellers and there are the consumers. What separates the two is not merely the physicality of a table, but the capital investment it represents. Those distroing have usually been required to purchase space…
« Selon vous, la liberté, c’est le Diable » : Divinité et subordination dans la pensée anarchiste
Original : Jules Elysard. “Liberty, for you, is the Devil”: Divinity and Subordination in Anarchist Thought. Traduit par Decarnelle Rémi. « Viens ! Satan, viens, le calomnié des prêtres et des rois, que je t’embrasse, que je te serre sur ma poitrine ! » Pierre-Joseph Proudhon (1858). Dieu, dans presque toutes ses incarnations dans les religions monothéistes, représente la…
C4SS Featured in Two Podcasts
C4SS scholars were recently featured in two different podcasts. As a philosophy, left-wing market anarchism sometimes has a hard time finding a home — but the flip side is that our ideas are relevant to discussions in a few different political contexts. Recently, C4SS scholars were featured in two seperate podcasts — William Nava’s “Who…

This new podcast on anarchist thought, hosted by Zachary Woodman, brings together a wide variety of guests, from academics, to on-the-ground activists, to Center scholars, to entrepreneurs to discuss the latest developments in the philosophy…
Il Falso Spauracchio della Megamacchina
In risposta a Gelderloos Di William Gillis. Originale pubblicato il 26 novembre 2018 con il titolo The Megamachines Are False Specters – A Response To Gelderloos. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. Ritengo vergognoso il fatto che gli anarchici non si occupino più di geopolitica o del futuro. I più grandi successi di questi ultimi due secoli…
The Megamachines Are False Specters — A Response To Gelderloos
I think it’s a shame that anarchists don’t write more on either geopolitics or analyses of the future; over the last two centuries our greatest successes have come from our imagination and foresight. For this reason I applaud Peter Gelderloos’ recent attempted forecast, published in a variety of forms by Crimethinc. There’s much to agree…
