Women’s Liberation and Alienation: A Marxist Perspective

Zak Drabczyk Featured, The Commune Leave a Comment

Introduction The question of Women’s Liberation has always been one of a strenuous nature. Even amongst the broader Left, the role and function of Women’s Liberation has varied greatly. I will set the record straight by first not using the phrase ‘Women’s Rights’; I find this terminology highly frustrating because it tends to assume that women can reach some form …

Full disclosure: I have known Lauren Smith, one of the subjects of this blog post, for over five years. We are online friends, and I first “met” her through a feminist community I once co-moderated. An estimated 22 anti-capitalist protesters were arrested on Saturday after police clad in riot gear violently disrupted their march against colonial genocide, which is celebrated …

Conversations with “Free-Market Anti-Authoritarianism” – Part 1 First, I should probably lay some groundwork. What is a “free-market anti-authoritarian”? The reason I might need to explain what they are to some is that you are very unlikely to run into one anywhere but on the internet, and if you do they might go by several different monikers. One of them …

Matt D. Harris Anarchism, Class War 1 Comment

I think it’s important to take a moment to make this distinction.  Anarchism is a well-thought-out revolution leading to a well-thought-out lifestyle, free of oppressive/coercive hierarchies.  It is an implementation of true freedom that leads to peaceful co-existence and cooperation. Anarchy is an implementation of true freedom without any other facets.  Lacking the thoughtfulness and cooperative/voluntary structures of anarchism, it …

First, a disclaimer: I don’t claim to be an anarcho-capitalist, but I have a fair number of friends who do.  I’m fairly well-versed in ancap theory as well as theories from which it sprung forth (traditional anarchism and classical liberalism) as well.  I’m approaching this subject from an anarcho-capitalist perspective in order to critique some common statements made by self-professed …

Anarchism vs. Anti-Statism

Matt D. Harris Anarchism, Featured, Socialism 4 Comments

It seems that, at times, some people confuse anarchism and anti-statism.  Anarchism is defined by anarchists as an opposition to oppressive/coercive hierarchies.  This does not mean that anarchists oppose, say, a group of workers in which one work has been given the responsibility for making a schedule – while in this example, a hierarchy (a power imbalance) clearly exists in …

Towards a Masculist Movement

Matt D. Harris Anarchism, Featured, Gonzo 28 Comments

Feminism doesn’t speak for me. Feminists often claim that they speak for all gender oppression.  They claim to be true gender egalitarians, and that they’re opposed to heterosexism, transphobia, and discrimination against men, in addition to fighting against gender oppression targetted at AFAB [Assigned Female At Birth] people.  They also quite commonly make the point that “men” don’t understand the …

Without bad people, bad ideas cannot result in piles of dead civilians

George Donnelly recently posed the question “Are you opposed to bad people (statists)? Or bad ideas (statist philosophy)?” Let me start by saying that George is a principled guy, and I have a lot of respect for him, and for his views.  He’s a very genuine individual.  In this case, however, I tend to disagree.  I don’t disagree entirely.  Specifically, …

Opposition to Policing and the Law

Workers solidarity movement has one of the best articles about policing and law I have read in quite a while. It really hits the issue hard and concise: The police force is the state’s physical and intimidatory means of maintaining a desired status quo in society; one of socio-economic divisions and inequalities. Alexander Berkman stated that crime “is the result …

A Note On Anarchism Construction Over Destruction

Many can not remove their concept of a state from their concept of order or protection. This makes statelessness difficult for those people to comprehend. On the other hand many get caught up in the idea that I am promoting a ‘destruction of the state’ which is not entirely true. We do not destroy our way to a stateless society. …
