Against Anarcho-Liberalism and the curse of identity politics

Anarchism in the UK is a joke. Once symbolising hard-fought struggles for freedom, the word has been stripped bare to make way for narrow-minded, separatist and hateful identity politics by middle class activists keen to protect their own privileges. We write this leaflet to reclaim anarchism from these identity politicians. We write as self-identified anarchists who see our roots in the political struggles of the past. We are anti-fascists, anti-racists,… …

Οι Βλάχοι μάς κλέβουν την (νεοφιλελεύθερη) απόλαυση- του Άκη Γαβριηλίδη

Την εβδομάδα που μας πέρασε, δύο επιφανείς εκπρόσωποι της δημοσιογραφικής «γενιάς του 90», ο Πέτρος Κωστόπουλος και ο Φώτης Γεωργελές, με διαφορά λίγων ημερών ο ένας από τον άλλο, προέβησαν σε δημόσιες τοποθετήσεις με τις οποίες επιχειρούσαν έναν απολογισμό των εξελίξεων που συνέβησαν στην ελληνική κοινωνία τα τελευταία χρόνια.

Under Neoliberalism, You Can Be Your Own Tyrannical Boss- by. MEAGAN DAY

The authors, both psychologists, conclude that “recent generations of young people perceive that others are more demanding of them, are more demanding of others, and are more demanding of themselves.” When identifying the root cause of… …


What Exactly Is Neoliberalism?- a talk with Wendy Brown

  Climate change, a crippled welfare state, the financial crisis, skyrocketing income inequality, political disappointments reaching back decades, terrible superhero movies grossing billions of dollars, Facebook and Tinder—these are just a few of the sins attributed to neoliberalism. But what exactly is neoliberalism? An economic doctrine? The revenge of capitalism’s ruling class? Or something even more insidious? Booked is a monthly series of Q&As with authors by Dissent contributing editor Timothy Shenk. For this… …


Was the Rise of Neoliberalism the Root Cause of Extreme Inequality?- by George Monbiot // Ήταν η άνοδος του Νεοφιλελευθερισμού η πρωταρχική αιτία της ακραίας ανισότητας;

[English+Ελληνικά] Imagine if the people of the Soviet Union had never heard of communism. The ideology that dominates our lives has, for most of us, no name. Mention it in conversation and you’ll be rewarded with a shrug. Even if your listeners have heard the term before, they will struggle to define it. Neoliberalism: do you know what it is? Its anonymity is both a symptom and cause of its… …
