Individualismo hacia la abolición del yo
Frank Miroslav. Artículo original: Individualism Towards Abolition of the Self, del 17 de diciembre de 2019. Traducido al español por Vince Cerberus. Una de las palabras más retorcidas del discurso político actual es individualismo. Cuando la gente habla de individualismo, tiende a fusionar dos tipos de individualismo y los presenta como inseparables. El primero es el…
La Moderna Forma Urbana Come Costrutto Capitalista
Di Dawie Coetzee. Originale pubblicato il 6 luglio 2022 con il titolo The Modern Urban Form as a Capitalist Construct. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. In un quarto d’ora su internet non son riuscito a trovare quando l’espressione “andare in città” ha finito per significare (secondo un modo di dire inglese, ndt) fare qualcosa con grande…
The Modern Urban Form as a Capitalist Construct
I could not, in the course of a fifteen-minute internet search, find a definite first attestation of the expression “to go to town,” meaning to do something with great energy or exuberance. That a number of sources report a probable 19th-century American origin is not surprising given that the idiom rests on a metaphoric use…
Vindicating the Luddites
I have for so long held the same ground – roughly where the anarchic end of Chestertonian Distributism overlaps the individualist end of Proudhonian Mutualism – that I am willing to go so far as to propose as a rule that getting it in the neck from both sides of a false dichotomy is a…
Transhumanism and Egoism
I’ve been called upon to give a transhumanist perspective on egoism. I think that this is a pretty simple critique so I’m going to largely spend this piece talking about why egoists should take it seriously. If you’re already convinced of the importance of thinking rigorously, please just skip my self-indulgent rant and go to…

Coordinación económica descentralizada: Dejemos Cien Flores Florecer
De Kevin Carson. Artículo original: Decentralized Economic Coordination: Let a Hundred Flowers Bloom de 15 de junio de 2020. Traducido para el español por Kathiana Thomas. El problema del cálculo, tal como enunciado por Ludwig von Mises y Friedrich Hayek, ha sido central para la mayoría de argumentos libertarios en contra de formas coordinación económica…
Deplatforming Parler will have consequences for which we must immediately prepare
Two days after the American far right’s failed fascist coup on January 6th, 2021 that left five people dead in Washington, DC, Twitter (finally) permanently banned the would-be dictator responsible for inciting the mob from their platform. Shortly thereafter, the social media network most closely affiliated with the racist reactionaries, Parler, was kicked off its…

Imagining an Optimistic Cyber-Future
[Hear an in-depth discussion on this article and its topics in this and this episode of The Enragés] Mastering most things humans do requires lifetimes of practice. Woodworking, gardening, and painting are just a few crafts whose histories stretch back thousands of years. But modern telecommunication, the act of communicating nearly instantaneously with someone from afar,…
The Internet was always anarchist, so anarchists must learn to become responsible for operating it
The fundamental tenet of anarchism is the resistance to an Archos, Greek for “master.” To advocate for anarchism is to position oneself in opposition to a master, i.e., to claim the fundamental right of self-determination, autonomy, and freedom from a centralized system of (especially coercive) control. To act anarchically simply means to act independently of…
Coordinamento Economico Decentrato: Sboccino Cento Fiori
Di Kevin Carson. Originale pubblicato il 15 giugno 2020 con il titolo Decentralized Economic Coordination: Let a Hundred Flowers Bloom. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. La questione del calcolo economico, così come impostata da Ludwig von Mises e Friedrich Hayek, viene usata spesso dai libertari per contrastare forme di coordinamento economico che non si basano sul…
Decentralized Economic Coordination: Let a Hundred Flowers Bloom
The calculation problem, as stated by Ludwig von Mises and Friedrich Hayek, has been central to most libertarian arguments against non-market or non-price forms of economic coordination. The Misesian variant, argued in Economic Calculation in the Socialist Commonwealth and Socialism, is based on the role of factor input pricing in allocating inputs among competing uses….
L’individualismo Verso l’abolizione del Sé
Di Frank Miroslav. Originale pubblicato il 17 dicembre 2019 con il titolo Individualism Towards Abolition of the Self. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. Nell’attuale discorso politico, individualismo è uno dei termini più distorti. Parlando di individualismo, si tende a confondere, a mettere assieme, due versioni dello stesso rappresentandole come inseparabili. La prima è “individualismo etico”, che…
Individualism Towards Abolition of the Self
One of the most twisted words in today’s political discourse is individualism. When people talk about individualism, they tend to conflate two types of individualism and present them as inseparable. The first is ethical individualism which sees the individual as the most important ethical consideration. The second is methodological individualism which sees the individual as…
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…
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…
