Against Intellectual Property

We think that copyrights, trademarks, and intellectual property should be abolished. Proudhon said it long ago, that "property is theft," and if anything current intellectual property fights on the Internet bolster his claim. Intellectual property is for those with power, who can use the force of the state to enforce their claims. But intellectual property simply gets in the way of communication and the sharing of ideas, be it in the arts or in biology.

Fake Anarchists and Libertarians

In recent years, there has been an increase in people who promote ideologies which they wrongly associate with anarchism and libertarianism. Much of this has to do with an increase in the number of people who claim to be "anti-government", but who actually aren't against the state and who are for systemic things like capitalism which can't survive without states. We'd like to shed some light on these people, groups, websites and projects which claim to be anarchist and/or libertarian, but are everything but.

What you should know about the Revolutionary Communist Party (RCP)

The Revolutionary Communist Party, USA (RCP, USA), known originally as the Revolutionary Union, is a Maoist communist party formed in 1975 in the United States. The group has few members at this time and is considered by many to be a relic of the Old Left. The organization's main activities include publishing the Revolution newspaper (formerly the Revolutionary Worker), publishing books, running front groups and promoting the writings of their main leader, Bob Avakian.

A RECOMMENDED READING LIST

The perspectives on this web-site may seem novel or eccentric to some readers. But they haven't emerged in a vacuum. The main theoretical influences on my politics are The Situationists, left-communism, and anti-syndicalist class war anarchism. My descriptions will be short and not too sweet --

The SITUATIONIST INTERNATIONAL was an avant-guard and ultra-left tendency in Europe in the 1960's, active mainly in France. The Situationists were the most sophisticated radicals in the global social movement of their day. Their politics were a synthesis of the better elements of ultra-left Marxism and anarchism. The S.I.'s methods of subversive agitation played a significant role in the May 1968 events in France. This was the last time that a major industrialized democracy came close to being overwhelmed by revolution.

AMERICAN DEFEAT: an anti-state communist perspective on the Iraq war

As I write this, in early March 2003, the rulers of the United States are about to attack Iraq. If the prevalent guesses are correct, the American empire will rapidly defeat and destroy Saddam Hussein's regime, seize Iraqi oil fields, and occupy major urban centers. This will probably be accomplished with an initially low number of US military casualties, and a very high number of deaths among Iraqi civilians and military personnel. The United States will attempt to cobble together a client regime analogous to that of Karzai's in Afghanistan, and it will be at this point, the high-point of an apparently overwhelming and inexpensive US military victory, that a real, enduring defeat for the United States may begin.

From Munis to Meese: LEFT COMMUNISM OR STATE DEPARTMENT SURREALISM?

By Kevin Keating

A Sleepwalker's Guide To San Francisco

In 1983 I became involved in sustained political activity outside of conventional leftism. I joined an anarchist group, ``Workers Emancipation,'' which was nominally focused on the class struggle and published a magazine called Ideas and Action.

Stalinism's Loyal Opposition: The Counter-Revolutionary Politics of Trotsky

This article was originally written to refute lies about the history of 20th century revolutionary movements peddled by the comically obnoxious Trotskyoids of the Spartacus League, in their newspaper Workers Vanguard (sic). Fearing that they may be losing ground to an admittedly incoherent contemporary anarchism, and hungry for fresh cannon fodder, the Sparts ran an occasionally informative series of articles by Joseph Seymour, titled "Marxism vs. Anarchism", tracing the historic differences between anarchism and the Sparts' version of "Marxism".

In part 7 of this series, (W. V., page 7, 8/30/1996), the part dealing with the Russian Revolution of 1917-1921, Seymour claimed:
