“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Interesting Post on Anarchism

HT Moses Boudourides. Andrej Grubacic lays it down in the wake of the Occupy movement.

In particular I'm interested in the rapprochement with science, something that checks my “time of hyperobjects” box if you've been hearing my talks. And also in the gesture towards the post-postmodern, which I believe thinking such as OOO is fleshing out in part.

It is pertinent that Grubacic thanks Graeber and Gordon, both and particularly Greaber have articulated all of that stuff some time ago. Graeber was led to scream hello we exist! How things change. Have you read the Dispossessed by Le Guin? Or looked at the work of stevphen Shukaitis? Try Constituent Imagination...AK Press 2007. Nothing wrong with Grubacic's article but there is so much more. Radical openness continues apace.
