liberal anarchism please stop 

Since anarchism is getting more media attention, I think we can just expect more of that.

that tag

please explain

is there an actual film coming out

The East.

Writers Batmanglij and Marling spent two months in 2009 practicing freeganism and co-wrote a screenplay based on their experiences and drawing on thriller films.”

This movie looks horrible. It was filmed in New Orleans and stars Ellen Page. Throughout the filming they paid punks on the street for their clothes, shopped at our infoshop covertly, and yet.. Didn’t actually employ any punks or anarchists to wear their own clothes or sport their own radical paraphernalia  (fyi: most productions filming in New Orleans hire local actors and extras and support local economy, this film didn’t.) The cast was almost entirely white, in spite of being filmed here.

To boot, while it carries a “complicated” love story dynamic, the main character is still a cop infiltrating anarchists. It portrays train hopping and radical culture in the US in a grotesquely inappropriate way, and ultimately portrays radical environmentalism and activism as futile extremism. It humanizes a cop, portraying her as complex and moral. All the while tokenizing radicals and applying the same tired hippy free love cliches to Anarchists as was stereotyped onto radicals of the 60’s and 70’s. Have I mentioned it’s really white? This movie is really white.

Sensationalism is not what radicals in the US need, nor is it what the general public needs to see in relation to activists. Fight the urge to see this film and dont support it financially. Download it! Share it! Ignore it.

Dont let hollywood profiteering interfere with the natural development of radicalism in the US. Ugh. Ew.

And today is one of those days when I say “fuck the radical left.”

Fucking white manarchists.

Look, I’m a socialist (it’s in my blog name, see?), so I’m in complete agreement that a universal, public option for healthcare is the only right way to do healthcare. Medicine, life-saving operations, emergency assistance, and preventative care is not a product. It is not a luxury. It is a fundamental human right that every person in this world should receive regardless of how many little pieces of paper they have in their wallets.

That being said, if you believe that like I do, then you should support anything that expands healthcare to those vulnerable millions who cannot afford it. Republicans have been able to reframe the Affordable Care Act (or “Obamacare”) into just a debate over the individual mandate. The radical left, because we’re often so far up our own ass that we can’t hear anything but ourselves shitting every time Bernie Sanders tweets, have completely fallen for the right-wing lie. The Affordable Care Act is more than just the individual mandate.

Medicare will be expanded.

Most employers will have to provide health insurance to their employees.

Poor people will now receive tax credits to help them buy health insurance.

I’m seeing so many socialists/anarchists/communists complaining that they’ll now have to have buy a health insurance policy from an evil private health insurance company. That, to me, shows the most ignorance to the Affordable Care Act, because I great deal of the bill concerns reforming and regulating private health insurance companies. They can now no longer deny people coverage based on pre-existing conditions. They can no longer put a limit on the amount of care people can receive. Since millions more people will be insured, there’ll be waaaaay less healthcare bills being defaulted on, meaning the cost of healthcare will drop for everyone

There’s no reason not to support this law. Yes, we need universal healthcare, but we don’t have it, so why are you opposed to something that will provide free and greatly reduced coverage to millions of uninsured Americans? The universal option will come. In its absence, I accept and support the Affordable Care Act.

You know why?

Because I love socialism, but I love socialism because of what it stands for. It’s a concept meant to provide for everyone. It’s a concept and nothing more. I will support that concept in any form. Healthcare for all? Unfortunately, not yet. Healthcare for millions who could’ve never afforded it before the Affordable Care Act?

Fuck yeah.

Steal This Wiki

anticapitalist:

This is my favorite fucking wiki out there. Every person interested in activism and/or anarchy/socialism and shit should read this. It’s badass. I’ll quote from the main page

“The project is divided into three major categories.

  • Survive is a primer on basic level survival in tough times. Here, you will find information on everything from how to eat on the cheap, getting through high school, living on the street, knowing about drugs, and much more!
  • Fight is an advanced skills section for use after you have gotten your survival needs taken care of. Topics range from use of firearms, leadership skills, good use of the internet, getting the hell out of dodge, and even petty theft if you are desperate or crazy!
  • Lastly, Liberate is a section on individual cities written from a free spirit’s viewpoint. If you are stuck in a small town going nowhere and want to leave for adventure, Free Cities may have some good information for you”

Reblogging this again because EVERYONE NEEDS TO READ THIS NOW!

Especially anarchists.

GO!

Proudhon (via anticapitalist)

(Source: anticapitalist, via yajebbs)

"Revolutionary solidarity is, above all, a revolutionary practice. What this means is that it carries within itself the aims of revolution. For this reason, as anarchists, we cannot base solidarity on any authoritarian or economic foundations. It is not a matter of obligation, duty, or debt. No one owes anyone solidarity, regardless of what they have done or what they are going through. Rather the basis of solidarity is the recognition of one’s own struggle in that of others - in other words, complicity. This is of major importance. If solidarity is the recognition of my own struggle in the struggle of others, it is carried out in practice precisely through continuing that struggle, continuing to attack this social order, and doing so with a focus on what unites my struggle with that of others."

Punx Is Oppressors

leahxvx:

A story I’ve heard from many people is how hypocritical punx and anarchist punk types can be when it comes to policing people’s bodies and choices. While punks without anarchist politics can be just as fucked up as conservative christians or homophobic bro dudes, we do hope for something a bit more from those that “circle the A” in a serious way. Many will be anti-certain kinds of oppression, usually the big, easy to figure out ones like sexism and racism. Some will be body positive, sex positive, anti cop and anti capitalist. This is all great, any step in the right direction is a good step.

While many who take their politics seriously are body posi and supposedly reject mainstream ideals of attractiveness, a lot of punks still police other people on how they should look.

I have had many friends shamed by “radical punks” for starting to looking punk, not looking punk, for changing what sort of punk you they like (from street into crust, from crust into goth, hardcore to crust, hardcore to skin, whatever), for changing how they look and essentially telling them, you are poser, no matter what you do. Love the music? Don’t care. In Portland, most people who move here change into d-beat/crust punks because that is the local music scene.

Who cares if someone changes how they look every fucking day? If it makes them happy, why does it matter to anyone else? Why is it any of your business what someone does with their body? Why do you think you have the right to tell someone who they can or cannot be? How dare you tell someone that they are “fake” or not a “real” punk. I am sick of this bullshit high horse some folks get on when they think they’ve been in the “scene” for a few years. This is why I don’t give a fuck about the “scene” and I befriend people for their political beliefs.

None of us were born with bullet belts around our waists. None of us came out of the womb with a discharge tattoo. Everyone starts somewhere, and most of us change throughout the courses of our lives. ~*~get over it~*~

Fucking stop policing how other people look. It is not okay.
