The Undying Appeal of White Nationalism – By Candles and Torches – MP3 – Article – Read – Print – Archive – Torrent – YouTube
Originally published in December 2014, this piece investigates the cross- influence between fascism and radical environmentalism. Beginning in Germany in the early 20th century, we see how green utopian tendencies were incorporated into the Nazi party and how reactionary versions of environmentalism continue to influence today’s radical counter-cultures and political movements as well as how a radical populism is being used by silicone valley ideologues to develop a framework for a technocratic dystopia.
An Open Letter to Those Who Condemn Looting – By Evan Calder Williams – MP3 – Read – Print – Archive – Torrent – YouTube
This text was written in August of 2011 shortly after police shot and killed a black man named Mark Duggan in North London. In the days that followed tensions between police and disaffected youth exploded into wide spread rioting and looting, Many on the left condemned the rioters. The text that follows continues to be relevant because the police will continue to kill people of color , people will continue to respond and the left will continue to condemn them for it. We hope this audio production of this pamphlet will contribute to this tension until the police are no more.
“… buried beneath the attack on the ‘crass materialism’ of the looting is a nastier worm, that of distance and sheen, that supports critique and dissent precisely to the degree it remains irrelevant and immaterial, that it is to be seen and heard and not ever felt.”
A Surrounding for Us to Live Within: notes on industrial society and it’s ecology – By a Friend of Ludd – MP3 – Read – Print – Archive – Torrent – YouTube
A Surrounding for Us to Live Within came out of the Italian anarchist scene in 2003, is signed by “a friend of Ludd,” and sets out to “bring to light some relationships between the progressive loss of individual and social autonomy, environmental devastation and the sharpening of repression.” This very brief and unexpectedly gorgeous, succinct, and intelligent text starts off from one child’s definition of the environment and touches on everything from the mass hermitude of contemporary city-dwellers to the artful mixing of the pleasures of solitude with the pleasures of meeting, from meditations on the interplay between forest and village to a critique of representation, from the domination of technology to the war in Iraq, nuclear waste, the COP9 summit, the solidarity with Marco Camenisch, globalization, the state’s ecology, the wildcat strike of Milanese streetcar drivers, the struggle against prisons, the Luddite uprising, utopianism, the oil economy.
“In the notes that follow, we will try to bring to light some relationships between the progressive loss of individual and social autonomy, environmental devastation and the sharpening of repression. Not in order to update the endless catalogue of horrors and complaints, but rather in order to reflect on some possibilities. Just this once, we will start from a “for” and not an “against”. What is a “surrounding for us to live within”? I would say a place in which the pleasure of solitude and the pleasure of meeting are artfully intertwined, whereas we know from experience that industrial society destroys both.”
