To be frank, the two are not compatible and it is exactly their worship of the american constitution that holds this union back. Whereas many constitutionalists hold that the founding of america was a glorious achievement of western civilization that brought democracy and freedom to the new world, radical libertarians know better. Instead, they recognize that the founding of america came at the expense of the original residents of Turtle Island and was by no means the bastion of freedom many claim it to be. Whereas many constitutionalists will praise the 1st amendment, many of those same people claim that counter-protesters are violating the freedom of speech of others when they are not asking for anyone to be locked up for their speech but are merely engaging in counter-speech of their own.
They see it as being a capitalist scheme designed to make a few players wealthy at the expense of the millions who paved the way whose lives were ruined forever by the american legal system. Legalization means nothing if it does not address mass incarceration. Whereas many constitutionalists believe that only congress has the power to declare war within the confines of constitutional law, radical libertarians call for the end of all wars of imperialism and the abolition of the state.
Whereas many constitutionalists view the only proper role of the state as one of criminal justice, radical libertarians realize the history of our police force which formed from slave patrols before being hired as armed thugs for what would become the largest mass incarceration system in the world. While the constitutionalists will claim that slavery ended with the 13th amendment, radical libertarians realize the language of the amendment is plain as day and recognize that prison slavery is alive and well.
Whereas many constitutionalists see national borders as a necessary form of defense and a proper function of government, radical libertarians believe in abolishing all state borders in favor of the free travel of human beings. Radical libertarians, however, recognize that those words are still far from true today and that backpedaling to be closer to the visions of our founding fathers only means reversing much of the progress made in their wake.
Whereas many constitutionalists want to return america to a time and culture that only truly exists in fiction, radical libertarians realize that this project was flawed from the start and the only way to achieve true freedom is through abolishing the constitution and starting anew.

Estas cosas son brotes obvios del sistema y de no socavan de ninguna manera un llamado estricto al antiestadismo. Y anticipando el atractivo de la ley de Godwin : se puede ser un buen nazi y una terrible persona. De hecho, ambos van de la mano. Los agentes de la violencia estatal no son tus aliados de clase o tus amigos.
Nadie es inocente, pero los agentes de la violencia estatal tienen una mayor culpabilidad por el sufrimiento prevenible que encaran las personas marginadas, y por ende son herederos de los medios para ejercer una violencia inaceptable. Su recompensa fue volverse jugador sin contrato fijo de la NFL y que su protesta le fuera arrebatada de las manos en una torpe fiebre antiTrump. La bandera es poderosa. El culto a la bandera tiene consecuencias reales. Subsecuentemente, pareciera que, si se desea combatir esos mensajes, la iconoclastia es la respuesta.
Infortunadamente, quemar banderas rara vez comunica la sutileza y profundidad necesaria para cambiar las opiniones de la gente. A veces queremos hacerlo — como cuando escuchamos a Phil Ochs y pensamos en el complejo militar industrial y entran de repente esos deseos de profanar una bandera digo … es solo un ejemplo. Queremos aplastar algo sagrado para el Estado porque se va a la guerra y nunca va a dejar de hacerlo. Ellos lo ven como un ataque a todo lo que atesoran, en lugar de como una voz de protesta contra los sistemas que atropellan seres humanos.
Este texto es el sexto ensayo en el Simposio de intercambio mutuo del C4SS en junio. Al conservar el principio de igualdad de libertad, la democracia busca maximizar el control del individuo sobre las fuerzas que dan forma a su vida, en la medida en que semejante control sea compatible con un grado de control por parte de otros sobre sus propias vidas. Es imposible para cualquiera poseerla. Ahora bien, hay que admitirlo, se trata de un hecho interesante. Durante la mayor parte de la historia humana, ha sido inusual tener ambas al mismo tiempo.
Donde en efecto existe una maquinaria coercitiva, ni siquiera pasaba por la mente de quienes la controlaban que estuvieran imponiendo alguna clase de voluntad popular. Que esto pueda o no hacerse es debatible, aunque creo que vale la pena intentarlo. En la medida en que estos bienes comunes remplacen grandes cantidades de capital acumulado como fuerzas productivas principales en la sociedad, el gobierno de los bienes comunales implica acceso igualitario a estos activos como bienes productivos por parte de todos los miembros de la sociedad, y la habilidad de satisfacer una cantidad creciente de necesidades de subsistencia por fuera del sistema de salarios capitalista.
Di Logan Marie Glitterbomb. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. Ultimamente, il movimento per la legalizzazione della cannabis ha fatto grandi passi. La legalizzazione non ha effetto retroattivo. Occorre decriminalizzare completamente tutte le droghe, rilasciare retroattivamente tutti i detenuti per droga e cancellare i reati.
In recent years, the cannabis legalization movement has made many strides, legalizing medical and even recreational cannabis in many states. Despite the pushback both locally and federally, the legalization movement has by and large done what it promised: it has made a few handfuls of entrepreneurs rich off the demand built up by those whose livelihoods have been threatened by both the drug war and now the subsequent legalization.
The way many legalization regulations are written, growing, manufacturing, and retail licenses are usually extremely restricted, sometimes only to companies already in agricultural or medical fields or limited to only long-running businesses , thus squashing the potential for small-scale competition.
Menú de navegación
In areas where competition is a little more open, those with previous drug felonies are still restricted from working or owning businesses in the legalized industry , banning the very people who have long-term experience in the field. In places where cannabis has been legalized, the laws are not retroactive, meaning that those caught before the change in laws do not benefit by having their criminal records erased and many still are rotting in prison for previous drug charges.
Cannabis legalization means absolutely nothing if it does not address mass incarceration. For that, we need to ensure that these laws are retroactive, wiping the records clean of all previous drug offenders and releasing them from prison enslavement. And it is exactly the issue of mass incarceration that requires us to push beyond cannabis and call for the absolute decriminalization of all drugs and the retroactive release and forgiveness of all drug war prisoners. In fact, the issue of mass incarceration is an issue at the heart of the intersection of many important movements of our time, including movements against police brutality such as Black Lives Matter, movements against prison slavery such as Operation PUSH , the sex worker rights movement, movements opposing gun control, the Ban the Box movement, and many more.
As long as there are profit and power in prison slavery, the cycle will continue. In particular, witness the nearly perfect Cop Watch technique on display in the recent Starbucks racially-motivated arrest that sparked a nationwide media storm in response. Cop watching, a form of direct action and movement popularized by libertarians and other community activists, consists in monitoring and videotaping police activity in the interest of holding the police accountable.
The released video reflects cultural permeation of the concepts Cop Watch and other groups promote. This is ridiculous. The cellphone video itself is well positioned, showing the relatively empty shop, the arrest, and the interaction with the bystander while maintaining a close distance. We would also note that this video was released in a timely manner to news outlets and advocacy groups to provide maximum effect.
A quote from the Washington Post notes,. How long can you be on a property? Can you not browse at these stores now? Indeed, the small actions of two individuals can be said to have caused Starbucks across America to forgo profits for an entire day. Doubtless this action will also inspire more Cop Watch teach-ins, self-defense classes, and community push-back against regressive policing and commercial space policies.
Our networked society, as big business should know, can and does rapidly force boycott action on perceived violations of held values. Stated differently, when someone pulls out a cellphone to document, racism can become bad for business. Di Walker Storz. Originale pubblicato il 18 aprile con il titolo The Sick and the Damned. Scott Fitzgerald, Il Grande Gatsby. Il capitalismo produce inevitabilmente malattia sotto forma di alienazione fisica e mentale.
Il capitalismo comunicativo, o finanziario, accelera questo deterioramento sia del corpo sociale che dei singoli individui che si dibattono nel turbine. Scrivendo dal punto di vista del malato cronico, cerco di trovare posizioni strategiche che permettano di operare entro la malattia. Non voglio idealizzare la malattia, ma neanche trascurare il potenziale rivoluzionario insito in questa. Sotto il capitalismo, i lavoratori sono separati dalla loro creazione, il frutto del loro lavoro.
I malati sono separati dal proprio corpo, per quanto continuino ad operare entro i suoi limiti. I fantasmi sono spesso legati al mondo terreno, esseri incapaci di accedere al mondo puramente spirituale. Il compianto Mark Fisher elabora il termine con nozioni di nostalgia, cultura, futurologia e tardo capitalismo. Lo spettro non ci permette di accontentarci di mediocri soddisfazioni raccogliticce in un mondo governate dal realismo capitalista.
Dunque con cosa abbiamo a che fare quando esaminiamo il business e il capitalismo? Producono effetti materiali o immateriali? I malati perseguitano il capitalismo. Sono il memento della sua costante eterna di malattia e alienazione. Annunciano il suo imminente collasso, le sue contraddizioni interne, lo indicano come causa di malattia; virale, per esser precisi. Se un tempo si temevano e si evitavano gli appestati, oggi i sani fanno lo stesso con i malati fisici e mentali, i forieri del destino che attende tutti quanti con il collasso del capitalismo.
Se non ti senti bene per il troppo lavoro, lo stress o altro, non devi far altro che abbandonarti alla meditazione, o affidarti ad un terapeuta. Ci rafforzeremo con la carne del nostro nemico, superando noi stessi. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby. If capitalism must necessarily produce its own exterminating angel, it also produces a germinal form of this downfall in its spectres—those potentialities and excluded possibilities that haunt it. One of these spectres is illness. Capitalism cannot help but produce illness as a form of physical and mental alienation.
It is a call for actions that aim to do nothing less than stop the world so that we can break it and turn it inside out. Writing from the vantage point of someone who is chronically ill, I seek to find strategic positions to work from within illness. I neither wish to romanticize illness or to discount revolutionary possibilities that are germinal within illness.
The division between the sick and the well may be overly simplistic, but it is an important distinction that is both a class boundary and a metaphysical one. The sick are the most prime example of the way in which capitalism produces alienation. Under capitalism, laborers are separated from the fruits of their labor—their body of work. Those who are sick become separated from their body itself, while still bound within the limits of their body.
They become-incorporeal, while never being able to reach full incorporeality and the freedom that it entails, for they are still bound by the limits of their body even as they experience dissociation from it. Sickness creates an experience that is often physically and mentally dissociated and also temporally dissociated. If I go from feeling like a healthy year-old to feeling middle aged, to having the capacities of a middle-aged mind and body, I have experienced a dramatic and disorienting shift in time of the sort that is common with illness.
In addition, if I have a chronic or terminal illness and I am not sure of how long this state will last, I enter an even more temporally-distorted delirium or limbo. This is another facet of alienation that the sick are an example of—not only to be denied access to your body, but to be denied access to an unalienated experience of time.
While the sick are not fully-incorporeal, they live closer to death than the well. Being the companions of death, and being transient, and more incorporeal than the well, they become ghosts. Remember that a ghost is not simply another word for spirit, but is traditionally someone in a captive rather than liberatory form of existence after death. Ghosts are often unhappily bound to earthly realms, rather than going on to realms of pure spirit.
Thus a ghost provides a perfect image of one who is sick—one is becoming-incorporeal, yet still unhappily bound to earth. Mark Fisher RIP has elaborated on this term most prominently, using it to write about nostalgia, culture, futurology, and late capitalism. Mark Fisher has identified hauntology as the study of lost futures—his body of work is essentially the reimagining of capitalism as a ghost story, in which spectral desire for other possibilities continually haunt various realms of culture in capitalism, a system that has tried to foreclose those possibilities.
It is about refusing to give up the ghost or—and this can sometimes amount to the same thing—the refusal of the ghost to give up on us. Hauntology is understood by Fisher as a metaphor, a study of the virtual, those things which are not present but still have effects. I propose a deliberate misreading or double-reading of this term that confuses the boundaries between idealism and materialism, between flesh and spirit.
I conceive of hauntology in such a way that I refuse to reduce it to a materialist analysis. When capital acts of its own volition, is it unnatural to think that ghosts and demons inhabit the world? So what we are dealing with, in analyzing sickness and capitalism? Do both have material and immaterial effects? Hauntology is possibly the best field of study for understanding sickness and collapse, as it involves an understanding of the presence of absent and excluded futures and figures.
The sick haunt capitalism. They are a constant reminder that capitalism must produce sickness and alienation. Mental and affective disorders, as well as various illnesses, are rising exponentially under communicative capitalism via a mixture of insomnia, overwork, social atomization, psychological mutilation, and environmental toxins. This is a contradiction that anybody can understand once it is illuminated.
Just as people feared and shunned those sick with the plague, so shall the well and the wealthy fear and shun the physically and mentally ill today, because they are harbingers of the fate of all of humanity under capitalist collapse. The way woke liberalism aka postliberalism addresses illness and mental illness under capitalism is largely to feign empathy while remaining indifferent to the structural causes of illness.
Postliberal and neoliberal thought views the individual as totally cut off from a social body, simply a biological unit in which malfunctions can be addressed through medical or pharmacological interventions. If you are not doing well because of overwork due to stress, et cetera, you just need to squeeze in mindfulness meditation, or therapy. You just need to take Zoloft, or do Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, in which brainwashing takes on the veneer of rationality, and you label certain thoughts as errors and discount them. So what must replace self-care? Healing is always important, and leftist movements that emphasize productivity at the expense of the body and the planet and especially at the expense of the sick, are replicating the cancerous aspects of capitalism.
At the same time, individual healing will never be enough to solve the huge collective problems created by capital. Capital is an abstract parasite that takes time, value, and eventually health from the laborer. Working to get ahead is a vain effort that will only succeed in increasing the strength of this parasite.
Fascist movements specifically labelled the sick as parasites that needed to be cleansed, but this fascoid moralizing regarding the sick is extremely prevalent in liberal philosophy and capitalism, which are of course linked. I have decided that no longer shall I view parasitism as a bad thing, that I shall reclaim it.
I have been turned into a husk of a person, a sick body, by way of capital, and I will now direct my need for sustenance and support at institutions that are part of capitalism. Parasitism solves a Nietzschean problem—it provides a way that an anti-capitalist movement borne out of the anger of the ill can overcome itself, rather than being purely reactive.

It will be a productive and affirmative ressentiment that drives us. We will strengthen ourselves with our enemies flesh, thus overcoming-ourselves. We will haunt capitalism until we get our time and our labor back, until we can be reunited with our flesh. Rojava, che non obbedisce al programma neoliberale, rappresenta un pericolo per chi vorrebbe imporre un controllo statalista in Medio Oriente. Una simile esperienza dovrebbe ispirare lotte rivoluzionarie ovunque.
La costituzione di Rojava non segue lo schema da tempo usato dai neoliberali per asservire il Medio Oriente, come nella Turchia governata dai conservatori neoliberali. Senza Rojava, scompare gran parte delle speranze che il Medio Oriente possa uscire dal giogo della democrazia neoliberale e dello sfruttamento capitalista. La popolazione di Rojava ha dimostrato di meritare il sostegno dei radicali di tutto il mondo.

Lebsky, Maksim. Bookchin, Murray. At its inception C4SS focused on getting timely editorials with an anarchist focus published in newspapers around the world. However, with the slow decline of print media, many of the community newspapers that served as our bread and butter have dried up.
Meanwhile, thankfully, our profile has risen as an incubator of theory and discourse. We will offer a wide range of products, not just books and zines but a host of unique buttons, stickers, and apparel. Some of which was available early to fans who visited our table at a number of bookfairs and conferences. All of which will be accessible as public domain information in addition to purchasable material goods. Running a store for ourselves will enable us to provide more materials, to directly profit from purchases, and to generally lend the institutional weight of the Center to better fulfill customer demand.
Available in our store will also be book versions of our popular Mutual Exchange symposiums, which are in the process of going to publication. Nowhere else will you find anarchists thinkers from across the spectrum debating in good faith and with great depth topics like property, democracy, and antifascism. Eleven years of nonstop publication has given C4SS a rich backlog of material to pull from, but it can also become inaccessible.
Check out our youtube channel for uploads of the audiobook version of Markets Not Capitalism, read aloud by Stephanie Murphy as well as continuing new recordings of C4SS articles. You can also now download the audiobook on Bandcamp , for free if you like, of course. There are many more projects in various stages of work, from grants for investigative reporting and quantitative analysis, to reading groups and meetups.
Aku tidak lagi memikirkan, apakah bangsa ini sudah merdeka, dan sudah berapa lama. Aku pikir akan lebih adil bagiku jika cukup hanya menghafalnya, bahwa tanggal 17 Agustus, negara ini memiliki ritualnya. Aku pribadi meyakini, negara tidak akan pernah berdiri tegak jika tidak ada sekumpulan individu-individu. Namun individu harus merdeka seutuh-utuhnya, hingga mewujud dalam sosial untuk merebut kemerdekaan secara sosial. Jaman yang kuno tetap dibutuhkan di kekinian sebagai bacaan sejarah yang tidak bisa ditolak; bagaimana revolusi, juga demokrasi diteriakkan oleh sekumpulan pemikir-pemikir pencipta slogan untuk dapat menjadi tirani baru atas hak hidup individu, sekaligus hak ekonomi.
Bangsa ini terlalu takut untuk mengakui kesalahannya di masa lalu. Seni, juga ilmu pengetahuan tidak lebih sebagai karya slogan yang dikultuskan. Namun tragedi tersebut tidak dapat dibaca terputus, adanya kesalahan di masa lalu tetap harus dibaca detail, bahwa ada penghapusan pengetahuan tentang sejarah.
Mereka yang memahami, sekaligus memiliki catatan ini, masih berdiri dengan satu kaki saja kiri atau beberapanya memilih menyimpannya sendiri, dan cenderung bergerak di ruang-ruang elite, tanpa memikirkan nasib manusia. Dua tragedi ini sangat mengerikan, tidak hanya berdampak ke dalam sistem pemikiran ilmu pengetahuan, tapi juga ke dalam hak hidup manusia atas kelahiran, serta tanah airnya, di mana individu-individu ini memiliki hak perlindungan berupa payung negara.
Maka, apa fungsi negara jika propaganda hitam yang usang masih dipakai sebagai pendidikan sosial dalam menentukan hak kedaulatan individu masyarakat? Sejarah panjang revolusi kemerdekaan hak hidup manusia dalam melawan tirani berangkat dari hak kemerdekaan individu dengan menentukan pilihannya dalam berpikir, juga dalam hidup. Bukan memerdekakan sisi kiri ataupun sisi kanan. Bangsa ini belum benar-benar selesai dalam hal kemerdekaan ini.
Inilah wujud pemikiran modern yang konyol, bahkan ketololan bagi kaum terdidik. Bahwa dalam tubuh kiri maupun kanan ada satu keutuhan yang masih dilupakan, yaitu individu, sebuah keseimbangan dalam radikal pemikiran, juga radikal tindakan. Hak kedaulatan individu Self Sovereignty inilah yang tidak ada dalam tatanan masyarakat bernegara. Lantas bagaimana memilih keseimbangan, jika salah satu sisi cenderung diabaikan, dan fungsi negara hanya sebagai baju perekonomi dan sosial?
Namun melupakan inti peradaban manusia yang hidup, bukan yang mati.

Over 10, weekly visitors to e-laprensa. In the last week of the legislative session, lawmakers voted down a last-minute budget provision that would have denied prenatal care to pregnant women suspected of being undocumented immigrants. The Senate will return next week to vote on judicial nominations, but it will not consider major new legislation. Advocates for immigrants expressed relief that many of the provisions cracking down on undocumented immigrants such as making it a crime to rent them a home did not move forward. Jaime Aguayo, a member of Gov.
Don Carcieri s Advisory Commission on Hispanic Affairs, accused lawmakers of exaggerating the immigration problem to score political points in a state whose closest international border is the Canadian one, miles to the north. It s hard to make an issue of what doesn t really exist, Aguayo said. The frenzied debate erupted in March when Republican Gov. Don Carcieri blamed an estimated 20, to 40, undocumented immigrants living in Rhode Island for contributing to a halfa-billion dollar budget deficit, the state s worst fiscal crisis in almost two decades.
He signed an executive order forcing the state government and companies doing business with the state to use a federal database called E- Verify to check the immigration status of new hires. It also required state police and prison officials to identify undocumented immigrants for potential deportation. But advocates for immigrants warned the order could encourage racial profiling by police and deter undocumented immigrants from contacting police if they are the victim or witness to a crime for fear they could be deported.
The police department in the state s capitol city, Providence, refused Carcieri s request to join the enforcement effort. Opponents of Carcieri s order also warned that E- Verify sometimes mistakenly identify legal workers as ineligible to work. Business owners said the system would be burdensome to small firms. Lawmakers did approve one budget cut earlier in the year that eliminate immigrant children off state-funded health insurance, a step that affected both legal and undocumented immigrants.
But other bills including those that would have cut undocumented immigrants off from other forms of public assistance, deny them driver s license or bar them from getting worker s compensation payments when injured on the job all failed. Senate leaders said the E- Verify bill was technically flawed. They also had concerns about thrusting the state government too deeply into immigration policy, which is a federal issue, said Sen.
Daniel Connors, the chairman of the Labor Committee, which stopped the E- Verify proposal from getting a full vote in the Senate. If states meddle too much, multistate employers could be confronted with confusing or conflicting immigration laws adopted by the states, he said.

Spiderman loves these Webs bs: www. Obama was leading 46 percent to 38 percent among independents. Quinnipiac conducted simultaneous polls between June 17 and Tuesday in Michigan, Colorado, Minnesota and Wisconsin all considered key battleground states. Obama was leading in all four. McCain s strong showing among white voters in Michigan and Colorado helped him keep Obama to a smaller lead than in Minnesota and Wisconsin, where Obama led by margins of 17 points and 13 points, respectively. But the 48 percent to 42 percent edge McCain holds among white voters in Michigan may not be enough, said Peter Brown, assistant director of the university s Polling Institute in Hamden, Conn.
Michigan is a bluecollar state with a large white, working-class vote, the kind of voters with whom Senator Obama had problems during the primaries, Brown said in a release. But at this point, Senator McCain isn t doing nearly as well among that group as he needs in order to carry Michigan.
He also leads among union households of all races, 57 percent to 32 percent. Leah Yoon, regional spokeswoman for the McCain campaign, said Thursday that a recent spate of campaign visits by Obama undoubtedly helped the Illinois senator in the poll. Obama made a two-day swing through Michigan last week with stops in Flint, Detroit and Taylor. Earlier in the month, he was heard by 2, people at Troy High School and stopped by a distribution center in Oakland County s Waterford Township.
On May 14, he visited a stamping plant in Sterling Heights, held a town hall meeting in Warren and appeared at a Grand Rapids rally with former rival John Edwards. But the senator hasn t ignored Michigan, pouring hundreds of thousands of dollars into the state for a variety of campaign ads in recent weeks. Obama didn t begin running ads in the state until last Friday. Yoon said she s confident McCain s message will win over Michigan voters.
If anyone didn t think Michigan was going to be an uphill battle for John McCain, they re wrong, Yoon said. But we re going to continue to be encouraged that this state is within striking distance. Obama national campaign manager David Plouffe told reporters in a conference call that he s happy with how Obama is doing in the Upper Midwest, including Michigan, a state where Obama had taken his name off the Jan. We have a lot of work to do there, Plouffe said of Michigan.
But given the fact that we didn t campaign there, that John McCain has run in Michigan hard in and , to start from this position we think is important. Fifty-four percent of Michigan voters have a favorable opinion of Obama, compared with 27 percent unfavorable opinion. For McCain, 49 percent have a favorable opinion, while 29 percent have an unfavorable opinion.
