Anarchism Without the Name: Lessons from the Town of Cherán

IN A SMALL MEXICAN TOWN, LOCAL INDIGENOUS RESIDENTS HAVE CREATED A NEW, DEMOCRATIC, AND LARGELY PEACEFUL COMMUNITY. THE QUESTION, WHAT CAN WE LEARN FROM THEIR ACHIEVEMENTS? Murray Bookchin, in his seminal work in the field of social ecology, The Ecology of Freedom, criticised the tendency of history to focus upon the ‘achievement of power’, the empires with their ‘temples, mortuaries and palaces’ […]

Corona: It’s Love the Elites Are Really Afraid Of

‘The world stands at a parting of the ways’ begins one of my favourite quotes. And we are at such a crossroads now. In the coming weeks and months of this corona crisis the world will be divided into those who are not prepared to discard the community spirit we have (re)discovered and will use it to build a society […]

Propaganda and the Defeat of Jeremy Corbyn

I chose Channel 4 News for the very same reasons I have written about in detail previously: the programme presents itself as uniquely radical in the mainstream media, a lie that it is vitally important to expose because […]

Listing the ways the state-corporate media have sought to undermine Corbyn would sound preposterous to anyone not deeply immersed in these media-constructed narratives. But almost all of us have been exposed to this kind of “brainwashing under freedom” since birth.

US is manufacturing a crisis in Venezuela so that there is chaos and ‘needed’ intervention

Venezuela is America’s current target for mass destabilization in the hope of installing a puppet government. America has for years been waging an economic war against Venezuela, including debilitating sanctions which have dramatically affected the state’s ability to purchase medicines, and even mundane replacement parts needed in buses, ambulances, etc. Alongside the economic war there has been a steady propaganda war, but […]
