Autonomia robotnicza

Autonomia robotnicza
Aby zapobiec degeneracji ruchu społecznego, włoscy autonomiści zrealizowali koncepcję, wybiegającą o krok dalej od realiów ruchów czy partii oficjalnie kontestujących, lecz rzeczywiście potwierdzających istnienie kapitalizmu, w jego ewentualnie odświeżonej formie i treści. Dokonali analizy z punktu widzenia tych, którzy najbardziej odczuwali agresywny charakter gospodarki.

Marksizm i anarchizm

Marksizm i anarchizm
Upadek marksizmu w sferze politycznej i kompromitacja praktycznej realizacji idei „dyktatury proletariatu”, pociągnęły za sobą ogromne przeobrażenia na płaszczyźnie kulturowej. Ideolodzy systemu kapitalistycznego, mogli więc ogłosić „koniec historii”, ruch rewolucyjny został wyrugowany nie tylko w sensie fizycznym, zniknął również z ludzkich umysłów.

Teorie kryzysu

Teorie kryzysu
Czy kryzysy są wpisane w naturę sytemu kapitalistycznego, czy też są wywołane czynnikami wobec niego zewnętrznymi? Rozstrzygnięcie tego dylematu oczywiście ma spore znaczenie dla postawy, jaką dziś przyjmiemy: odrzucimy system w całości, czy będziemy starali się go jedynie reformować... aby dotrwał do następnego wstrząsu.

Samorządowa alternatywa

Samorządowa alternatywa
Czy w latach 80. istniała w ruchu "Solidarność" samorządowa alternatywa, zarówno dla PRL-owskiego socjalizmu, jak i dla kapitalizmu? Co się z nią stało? Czy samorządowa rewolucja została zdradzona, a jeśli tak to przez kogo? Na te pytania, mające fundamentalne znaczenie dla zrozumienia dzisiejszej sytuacji w Polsce, staramy się znaleźć odpowiedź w "Przeglądzie".

The Anarchist Review presents debates of radical social movements in Poland and abroad. By promoting and criticizing libertarian trends we develop knowledge about self-organisation and action strategies. You can find theoretical texts besides reports on practical activity, all with a global perspective.

WORK IN SCHOOL AND IN FACTORY

Libertarian Education: How is it possible?
Piotr Laskowski

Let us imagine a school that does not teach you to be "someone", that does not follow a clear purpose, but gives students a chance to judge things from a distance and to opt for resistance. This is what knowledge is about: to associate oneself with culture, not to take control over reality, but to create an intrinsic space both in and beyond reality. In order to prevent a situation where distance turns into isolation the school cannot be an institution, but has to be a community of friends who are understanding, caring and unselfish.

 

A Critique of Commodified Education and Knowledge (From Africa to Maine)
George Caffentzis

Although there previously have been eras when higher education was sold as a commodity and academics offered the knowledge "they produced" to the highest bidder, the contemporary barrier between university and market has grown so permeable that many academics are losing the sense of the distinction. Symptoms of this crisis abound everywhere around and in us. In this lecture I will challenge this commodification of academic research and higher education. To do this I first locate a common presupposition of the neoliberal, commodifying vision: knowledge is property. Second, I will examine the impact of neoliberal policies on university systems in Africa that, among the world's regions, have been least able to resist them.

Editorial for 12th issue

The 12th issue of the Anarchist Review is dedicated to the memory of Rafał Górski. Rafał was a great comrade who always attended demonstrations, pickets and debates. He lived and died free. We continue his fight against capitalism and the state.

Recollections of the long-term activist and historian of the anarchist movement, who died in 2010 after a long illness.

 

TECHNOLOGY IN THE SERVICE OF POWER

Uri Gordon | Anarchism and the Politics of Technology

Contemporary anarchists’ practical attitudes toward technology seem highly ambivalent, even contradictory. On the one hand, we find anarchists involved in numerous campaigns and direct actions where the introduction of new technologies is explicitly resisted, from bio- and nanotechnology to technologies of surveillance and warfare. On the other hand, anarchists have been actively using and developing information and communication technologies (ICTs), as well as engaging in practical sustainability initiatives that involve their own forms of technological innovation.

DEMOCRACY OR PARTICIPATION?

Czapka | Participatory Budgeting – Money and Ideologies
The concept of participatory budgeting carries the spirit of the 1990s, the faith in socio-economic transformation. Porto Alegre stood out as the living incarnation of the slogan „Another world is possible”. The city became a destination for many activists, including those who carry the black and red flag.

Sveinung Legard | Democratizing the Municipality, the Promise of Participatory Budgeting
It is not enough talk about future social changes, we have to work for concrete changes in the here and now that might move us in the direction of the society we desire implying, among other things, building up an alternative power structure that eventually will have to confront and try to replace the present oligarchic one.

FACISM IN THE AGE OF DEMOCRACY

Daniel Guérin Fascism and Big Business
Fascism is reduced to this: a strong state intended to prolong artificially an economic system based on profit and the private ownership of the means of production. Fascist dictatorship is the iron hoop with which the bourgeoisie tries to patch up the broken barrel of capitalism.

Jean Barrot Fascism/antifascism

„Fascism” is just an empty word used by the leftists to demonsrate their radicalism. However, the way they use the word results in confusion and theoretical compromises towards the state as well. The essence of antifascism is fighting with fascism by supporting the democracy at the same time.

No crisis no profit

Prol-Position - Comments on crisis
The modern crisis roots from the crisis in social production: excessive accumulation in industrialized regions of the world, disturbances and increasing demands of workers from the newly industrialized peripheries, strong pressure from the working class of the south, who are leaving their villages in search of a better fate.

Anwar Shaikh - An introduction to the history of crisis theories
In the history of economic thought we can see three main ways of analyzing capitalist reproduction. All of them bring different ways of understanding the crises, the factors that cause them and their consequences.

UTOPIA OF FINANCES

Grzegorz Piotrowski – The Present economical crisis in the USA in the eyes of social movements

When economical, political and social consequences of neoliberalism are considered at the turn of the 20th and 21st century, it is clear that neoliberalism has become the most criticised political doctrine. Some activists proclaim victory. The problem is that the end of that doctrine does not mean the end of capitalism.

George Caffentzis – Notes on the "Bailout" Financial Crisis

The mortgage crisis in the US is the effect of two proletariats: (1) the US proletariat's inability to increase wages (there have been almost no strikes of significance in the US in the last few years) and workers’ reliance on credit and equity to satisfy their subsistence needs (traditionally the attributes of rentiers) and (2) the Chinese proletariat's success, through thousands of strikes and protests, in increasing wages and forcing more investment in its social reproduction.
