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.

Against The Pull Of Simplicity & Disconnect
Alexander Reid Ross. Against The Fascist Creep (AK Press, 2017). Despite the right’s stereotype of antifascist activists as close-minded thugs or paid protesters, in reality the majority have long been quite geeky, prone to lining their bookshelves with obscure fascist screeds and abstruse historical tomes. This comes with its own problems. Fascism is a multifaceted phenomenon to say…
