Di Anarchismi e “Prove Viventi”
N_u_l_l | @N_u_l_l___. Articolo originale: On “Living Proof” and Anarchism, del 23 settembre 2021. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. Mentre per noia facevo lo struscio su Youtube mi è capitato un video di HBomberGuy intitolato “Vaccines: A Measured Response”. Ascolto spesso HBomberGuy perché dice cose intelligenti sull’attualità, e credo che il messaggio finale di questo video…
On “Living Proof” and Anarchism
On a long trawl through Youtube out of boredom, I came across a video from HBomberGuy, titled “Vaccines: A Measured Response.” I usually watch him because he has decent takes on current events, but the messaging at the end of the video I think hits home in the realm of “radical politics:” There is another…
È l’ora della Microproduzione?
Di Kevin Carson. Originale pubblicato il 25 marzo 2020 con il titolo Is This Micromanufacturing’s Hour? Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. Se operi nell’ambito delle micromanifatture o dell’hardware hacking, se fai parte di una comunità che produce macchine open-source, o anche se, come me, sei interessato alla rilocalizzazione economica al fine di sgonfiare il potere aziendale,…
Is This Micromanufacturing’s Hour?
If you’re involved at all in the micromanufacturing, hardware hacking, or open-source hardware communities, or interested (as I am) in their potential for economic relocalization and for undermining corporate power, you’ve probably seen a story going around about makers in Italy 3D printing valves to keep ventilators running for COVID-19 patients in critical condition. According…
We Are All Degrowthers. We Are All Ecomodernists. Analysis of a Debate.
View or download a PDF copy of Kevin Carson’s full C4SS Study: We Are All Degrowthers. We Are All Ecomodernists. Analysis of a Debate. Introduction One of the biggest problems with the debate over “degrowth” is the term itself. In many ways, “degrowth” is an unfortunate choice for a label because it is so ambiguous. On…
Nessun Cittadino
Abbattere le frontiere, andare oltre lo stato nazione Di Leif J. Originale pubblicato il 12 agosto 2019 con il titolo No Citizens: Abolishing Borders Beyond the Nation-State. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. La semplice esistenza delle frontiere rappresenta una delle fondamentali ingiustizie del mondo. Molti lo riconoscono implicitamente, inutile ripetere quello che è stato spiegato da…
No Citizens: Abolishing Borders Beyond the Nation-State
The very existence of borders is one of the founding injustices of this world. Most of us recognize this implicitly, and I won’t spend too much time here trying to argue what’s been clearly argued by generations of anarchists: Borders and citizenship are constitutive elements of the nation-state, and as such must be overturned and…
Goodbye, Cascadia: A Retrospective on a Political Mistake
Cascadia, Cascadia. What is there to say about this complicated movement? I suppose I should start by explaining what it is, and what it isn’t. After all, there are quite a lot misconceptions out there. Bioregionalism is not, on paper, nationalism in a green hat. Cascadia was originally largely an anarchist project, coming out of…
Per l’Açaí, Contro lo Stato
Come tutte le persone nate nello stato di Para, anch’io amo l’açaí (pronunciato assaì). Tutti i paraensi, a prescindere dallo status socio-economico, lo mangiano. È una realtà innegabile della vita nello stato di Para. Se vivi nella capitale, Belem, açaí ti ricorda costantemente che sei nell’Amazzonia, così come gli aironi in centro città. Açaí, preparato…
For Acai, Against the State
Like any other Para-born person, I like acai (pronounced “assa-IH,” people) a lot. Every Paraense, regardless of socio-economic status, eats it. It is an undeniablefact of life in Para. If you live in the capital, Belem, that is a constant reminder that we live in the Amazon, just like the herons downtown. Acai, as it is traditionally…
Obama’s Fifty Billion Dollar Corporate Gift
Ross Kenyon explains that Obama’s call for $50 billion to be spent on transportation infrastructure hurts local and regional businesses by subsidizing the transportation of goods from more distant firms, and thus further entrenches corporate domination of the marketplace.
