The End Is the Beginning: Anarchist Abolitionism as Communicative Creation
[Hear an in-depth discussion on this article and its topics in this episode of The Enragés] Thomas Malthus, in his infamous work An Essay on the Principle of Population, takes several sections to critique the ideas of arguably the first modern anarchist thinker William Godwin. In one, Malthus writes, The great error under which [Mr.]…
The End of Work (As We Know It) Part 2: The RICH Economy
In my previous essay Bullshit Jobs and the End of Work (As We Know It) I discussed the economic phenomenon that David Graeber coined as “bullshit jobs,” how the (transitionary) solution he suggested was to establish a universal basic income (UBI) and embrace automation leading to the end of work as we know it, and how this mirrors the…
Empregos de Mentira e o Fim do Trabalho (Como o Conhecemos)
Artigo original: Bullshit Jobs and the End of Work (As We Know It), de Logan Marie Glitterbomb. Traduzido para o Português por Gabriel Serpa. Pouco mais de cem anos desde que anarquistas, socialistas, comunistas, libertários e sindicalistas radicais venceram a longa, árdua e sangrenta batalha pela jornada de trabalho de oito horas, nos Estados Unidos,…
Bullshit Jobs and the End of Work (As We Know It)
A little over 100 years since anarchists, socialists, communists, libertarians, and radical unionists in the so-called united states successfully won the long, difficult, and bloody battle for the eight hour workday, we are still overworked and underpaid despite technological advancements necessitating less and less labor to maintain the same quality of life. To quote Bertrand…
Cos’è l’anarchismo?
Di Eric Fleischmann. Originale pubblicato il 23 ottobre 2020 con il titolo No Really, What is Anarchism? Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. L’articolo seguente è stato pubblicato originariamente su The Bates Student. Le parole “anarchico” e “anarchismo” si riaffacciano nel gergo politico del ventunesimo secolo. Cito da un mio precedente articolo pubblicato sul Center for a…
No Really, What is Anarchism?
The terms ‘anarchist’ and ‘anarchism’ are returning to the center stage of political lingo in the twenty-first century. To quote my own article on Center for a Stateless Society: President Donald Trump has repeatedly attempted to associate Black Lives Matter with anarchists and anarchism. He has tweeted such threatening posts as just the phrase “Anarchists, we see…
In Memoriam: David Graeber, 1961-2020
É convencional iniciar um artigo de obituário com um breve resumo biográfico, cá vai ele. Uma das irritações favoritas de David era referirem-se a ele como antropólogo anarquista, como tal direi que David Graeber, anarquista e antropólogo, faleceu aos 59 anos na quarta-feira 3 de Setembro em Veneza de causas ainda não conhecidas. Foi activista…
Ricordo di David Graeber (1961-2020)
Di Kevin Carson. Originale: In Memoriam: David Graeber, 1961-2020, pubblicato il 4 settembre 2020. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. È abitudine iniziare un necrologio con una breve biografia. Eccola: David detestava essere definito antropologo anarchico, dirò dunque che David Graeber, antropologo e anarchico, è morto a cinquantanove anni mercoledì tre settembre a Venice per cause tuttora…
A Critical Consideration of Hensley’s Appalachian Anarchism
In his book Total Freedom: Toward a Dialectical Libertarianism, Chris Matthew Sciabarra makes the astute observation that  “[j]ust as relations of power operate through ethical, psychological, cultural, political, and economic dimensions, so too the struggle for freedom and individualism depends upon a certain constellation of moral, psychological, and cultural factors.” This is something that Dakota…
In Memoriam: David Graeber, 1961-2020
It’s conventional to start an obituary article with a brief biographical summary, so here it is. One of David’s pet peeves was being referred to as an anarchist anthropologist, so I’ll say that David Graeber, an anarchist and an anthropologist, died at age 59 Wednesday, September 3rd in Venice of as yet unreported causes.  He…
Centrifugal Tendencies in Information & Wealth
I’m a big fan of Aurora and hope that her contribution to this symposium helps encourage more anarchists to engage fearlessly with the mathematical dynamics of an anarchist society. But I must admit my disappointment, I was hoping her contribution would seriously engage with the arguments for markets and either present a novel alternative or…
Denaro Senza Stato
Di Black Cat. Originale pubblicato il 7 ottobre 2019 con il titolo Money Without the State. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. David Graeber, in Debt, attacca quello che definisce “il mito del baratto”, l’idea che il denaro sia un’invenzione collettiva, uno standard universalmente riconosciuto per evitare i problemi del baratto. E ha perfettamente ragione: è un…
Money Without the State
Graeber, in his Debt, attacks what he refers to as ‘the myth of barter’ — the idea that money is a communal invention and agreed-upon standard to avoid the problem of having to barter. He’s entirely correct — such a myth is false. However, some of his overzealous fans are incorrect — he at no…
Logiche Postmoderne in Azienda
Di Rai Ling. Originale pubblicato il 23 settembre 2019 con il titolo Postmodern Discourse in the Corporate Boardroom. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. Ad un recente incontro d’affari ho capito come le gerarchie aziendali portino spesso a distorsioni della realtà e ad una concorrenza a somma negativa. Come analista, elaboro “quadri operativi” che forniscano istruzioni attendibili…
Postmodern Discourse in the Corporate Boardroom
During a recent business meeting, I noticed some ways in which corporate hierarchy leads to negative sum competition and distortions of reality. At my current job in data analytics, I build live business “dashboards” to provide actionable insights to upper management; this includes working with different departments to create new data pipelines and ensure the…
