(en) awsm.nz: Vote For Nobody...Nobody Tells The Truth

November 9, 2016 - 8:48am
The recent local elections have seen a continuation in the decline in the numbers of the people taking time to vote. Along with this comes the usual soul searching and hand wringing among commentators in the media wondering just what is going wrong, and how can it be fixed. ---- The usual possible solutions are offered including on-line voting, making voting compulsory, a "none of the above" option being placed on the ballot paper, or a "no-confidence party" being formed for the disaffected. Of course some just consider the electorate to be too distracted by other things, too ignorant, too ungrateful of living in a democracy, or just too lazy. ---- From my experience of talking with people who don't vote there is an instinctive repulsion for our politicians and the system that hands them a nominal position of power, while not really troubling the corporate giants ...

November 6, 2016 - 4:44am
The Hungarian uprising of 1956 a controversial memory. Proponents of a liberal anti-totalitarianism make proof that the Hungarian people adhered unconditionally to the capitalist model. Hungarian nationalists transform it into patriotic insurrection. One can also see this event for what it was: a massive revolt of the working class against authoritarian socialism, which rose direct democracy. ---- The context of the insurrection was threefold. On the one hand, following a pluralist period between 1945 and 1948, the Stalinist Communist Party, headed by Mátyás Rákosi, had reined in Hungarian political life with a particularly ferocious brutality. On the other hand, the Twentieth Congress of the CPSU in February-March 1956, which the "revelations" of Stalin's crimes had been timid echoes in Hungary, had raised the hopes of supporters of communists some liberalization, ...

(en) Robert Graham: "We Still Do Not Fear Anarchy" and René Berthier's comment par Eric Vilain

November 6, 2016 - 4:43am
The quote in the title is taken from Bakunin himself, who first publicly identified himself as an anarchist in 1868, around the time that he joined the International. It is surprising then that in another book along similar lines, René Berthier argues that the anarchist movements that emerged Social Democracy & Anarchism in the International Workers' Association 1864 - 1877 from the struggles within the International regarding the proper direction of working class and socialist movements constituted a break with rather than a continuation of "Bakuninism," and that Bakunin is better described as a revolutionary socialist or syndicalist than as an anarchist. I think my book provides a good counter-argument to that position. ...
