Hello comrades! Black Rose Books, a small anarchist publishing house based in Montreal, is hosting a conference onsite and online celebrating life of Peter Kropotkin. It will take place from February 5th-7th. A commemorative will take place on the 8th, the 100th anniversary of Kropotkin's death. If you would like to submit a presentation for the conference a working title, abstract, and a short description of yourself (preferred but not mandatory) is due November 22nd. We have allocated approx. 1 1/2 hours which would include group activities and discussion periods in addition to the presentation. Current submissions include university professors, independent authors, and activists from a wide variety of countries around the world.

What's your opinion on dialectics /dead/?
Like do you think it's usefull to analyse processes using a dialectical scheme or is that outdated to you? And what would be a post-strucuralist approach to the questions of developement and motion?
I don't agree with the hard line hegelian notion that the universe already exists in an dielectical form, but I do thing dialectics are overall still a valid conception.

Because dialectic movement always points to a resolution. There is always a conciliation at the end of it. This is also the reason why dialectics is incapable of comprehending difference i.e. anything that falls outside its totalising movement.


What is even negation? For example, Bakunin has this to say on the matter of human development while discussing materialism in God and the State:
> But as every development necessarily implies a negation, that of its base or point of departure, humanity is at the same time and essentially the deliberate and gradual negation of the animal element in man; …
What does this even mean, other than "the more things change, the less they remain the same"?


Ok, I'll read Deleuze
>It is at work everywhere, functioning smoothly at times, at other times in fits and starts. It breathes, it heats, it eats. It shits and fucks. What a mistake to have ever said the id. Everywhere it is machines—real ones, not figurative ones: machines driving other machines, machines being driven by other machines, with all the necessary couplings and connections. An organ-machine is plugged into an energy-source-machine: the one produces a flow that the other interrupts. The breast is a machine that produces milk, and the mouth i machine coupled to it. The mouth of the anorexic wavers between several functions: its possessor is uncertain as to whether it is an eating-machine, an anal machine, a talking-machine, or a breathing machine (asthma attacks).


The beginning of Anti-Oedipus is pretty great but you should probably rather start with his book on Nietzsche.


>Because dialectic movement always points to a resolution
Every process does come to end, but at that end a new process begins

>What does this even mean, other than "the more things change, the less they remain the same"?
I would say the things don't stay the same, they are always changing, but the form of change is persistent

I'm out of a job cause my employer got bought out by a bigger company, and that company is background checking.

I'm sick of this shit. Does anybody have guides on how to make money online? Legitimate, illegitimate, doesn't matter. Would not mind talking to somebody one on one either, so long as proper OPSEC is in place.

>I am skeptical of dropshipping
that's fair.

What you could do as well is scan through thrift stores, pick the good shit, clean it up, and sell it.
Do that on eBay and depop (for more fashionable clothing items specifically), and if you can do it with enough scale you can make some alright money.
Need shipping materials of course, Amazon boxes are everywhere and people just fucking bin them, they tend to be good for a reuse though.
Envelopes are always preferable if the item is small and light enough; way cheaper to ship and envelopes are way cheaper to buy.
Bubblewrap is where the real materials expense tends to come, shit can be had at Walmart though.
Phone is always useful for price checking if the option's available, always look up completed listings on eBay to see what you can sell something for before you buy it.

Sometimes you'll find a real diamond in the rough, like an old $20 camera that can sell for like $200 (less 10% for eBay's cut),
but a $5-$10 article of clothing that you can sell for $15-$50 is good enough, especially if you can get a ton of em.
Lot's of thrift stores are operated to make money of course, even if they're "non-profits" through the arcane eyes of capital, so they've wisened up to pricing the actually valuable things quite highly as well, be wary of that.
And I really do advise price checking everything before you buy it, at least until you've a good enough grasp on clothes that you can judge without aid;
and for things that have specific product models (electronics, vidya, books, etc.) you'll always want to price check outright.


A commodity is just something sold for value, specifically, the value gained from exchange of the commodity and not of the use of it. By selling that you are becoming a commodity, see "reification"


Yeah bruh but isnt reification already the false reversal of social relationships into material relationships of commodities and therefore spooked from the beginning?


But you are selling a photo of your feet, not your body.


Thanks for the tjp friend. I'm pretty alright at selling shit as is so, it should be easier for me. Currently taking as much shit from my job to sell as I can get away with before I leave.
Left this thread for a minute. Perhaps I chose the wrong word, but ultimately I just don't really want to camwhore. Setting up a fake only fans using random sets of photos I can find online though, is a valid option.

First of all I hope you are well. I take it that you're a euro who has second-hand knowledge of the events at the ZAD. I was very surprised because as a burger there are many things I'm not privy to, but I recall your complaint was basically that anarchists got the boot from the ZAD because the Appelists decided to go a legal route with the state, doing their 'petit-bourgeois goat cheese' farming or something. I don't think this makes them Marxists as you say, but it rings of Lenin at Brest-Litovsk, trading space for time. I just wanted to hear more about the Appelists actions at the ZAD, the different factions (I've read a little about them on English websites like autonomies and ill-will), and what you think of the following. The Appelists say this;

>There is no “other economy,” there’s just another relationship with the economy. A relationship of distance and hostility, to be exact. The mistake of the social and solidarity economy is to believe in the structures it adopts. It’s to insist that what occurs inside it conforms to the statutes, to the official modes of operation. The only relationship one can have with the structures adopted is to use them as umbrellas for doing something altogether different than what the economy authorizes. So it is to be complicit in that use and that distance. . . We should make use of economic structures only on condition that we tear a hole in them. . .

>As for the structure with holes in it, it draws its meaning not from what it communicates but from what it keeps secret: its clandestine participation in a political scheme immeasurably larger than it, its use for ends that are economically neutral, not to say senseless, but politically judicious, and for means that as an economic structure it is designed to accumulate without end. Organizing in a revolutionary way via a whole resistance network of legal structures exchanging between themselves is possible, but risky. Among other things, this could furnish an ideal cover for international conspiratorial relations. There’s always the threat, however, of falling back into the economic rut, of losing the thread of what we’re doing, of no longer seeing the sense of the conspiracy. The fact remains that we must organize ourselves, organize on the basis of what we love to do, and provide ourselves the means to do it.

as someone who is more of a Marxist, I admire the shift towards the politPost too long. Click here to view the full text.


basically I was surprised at hearing that the Appelists took this legal route and couldn't imagine what you were saying is right, but these passages clarify their position. I suppose you don't think it's the right way to go about things. It seems like a way to grow power and influence, though. And tell me, what has become of the ZAD and its productivity and factions after the fact? Have the Appelists lost credibility in the eyes of the others? Has it been a major setback for France as a whole? How does it now relate to the Yellow Vests and how are they faring?


Do you really believe that operating a print shop so that you can print pamphlets on the weekend is some conspiracy?


No but I believe that smuggling contraband in shipments of X commodity can be.

What's wrong with cat ears


there's nothing inherently wrong with cat ears.
But they're associated with a certain scene and first of all I just don't like the weebs n furries n sex obsessed nerds who generally are into cat ears, but also it's just too much of a meme now. Cat ears got too big. We live in post Big-Ear world. Big-Ear controls our society now, so as an anarchist I oppose cat ears, for ideological reasons

hi /death, as a ancom i have just been getting into post left theory, and i would like to ask for reasons why i should be a post leftist rather then a regular one. so i would like problems with the left being addressed here and alternative positions being given to reconsider my own

>just read x book on the topic

i am busy with that right now and i have a whole reading list, i would also just like discourse in the meantime

>Why do you care if they are egoists or not?
because i like to hear non moralfag justifications for the way things are


alternative: happiness is a choice an can be found anywhere, if youre willing to be a meditation slut


I don't get it. But if you have read Stirner, he wrote about how most people tend to approximate the egoist but feel guilty about it afterwards, he called them "involuntary egoists".


nice cope


they are egoists in the same wane as everyboy is an egoist, but they are usually still spooked.
owning capital comes with its own norms you have to adhere to to be talking seriously by others capitalists or that are simply the result of how accumulation works. Just because they are benefiting from class domination doesnt mean they are not integrated in the class structure and thus tend to live not as unique egos, but as capitalists and liberals.


We are living in an age of turbulence. The paradigm of our existence is shifting, the society is standing on the brink of something that would drastically change or destroy the existing world order. Destabilization, polarization (political and otherwise) and intrinsic danger surround us at every step. Europe is the core of our existence, and multiculturalism caused by mass foreign invasion, with all its consequences, is the danger.

Throughout our lands, crime rates are rising rapidly, economy is suffering due to wrongly distributed welfare benefits, culture and ethnicity are being subverted and led into degeneracy with a clearly visible intent; and throughout our lands, backlash is evident and harsh. Riots among indigenous population, protest growing into true resistance against the criminal, anti-European, anti-White regimes.

We have waited and waited; for three generations we have waited. We have asked ourselves: What can we do? How can any change be possible when the proclaimed democracy is a lie? How can any change at all be possible when everything has been decided for us; when our nations are degraded, when our blood has no social/biological value anymore?

All traditional higher values of our society, of or past, our culture, our history, have been subverted and overturned. The tradition is no longer there. The value of having European descent is no longer there.

And we are in a race against time to avoid cultural replacement through a new Islamic invasion; and our hands are tied by the legislation, and our mouths are tied by tolerance and political correctness, and our people’s minds are clouded by the lies from the ruling elites and the media they govern.

So what CAN we do, what can we do right now, to avert a total catastrophe, to revert the process of annihilation enforced upon the Western culture, upon the White race?

The world is changing rapidly; the age is shifting. And what we CAN do is accelerate the backlash. What we CAN do is unite the youngest generations of Europe under on flag of White European resistance, traditionalism, ethnic nationalism; what we CAN do is bring about the true civil war by counter-acting the current invasion and its supporters at the top of our states: The EU. This backlash, this answer by actions to the danger we are facing is necessary and inevitable to sweep away the ethnically foreign elements and to restore monoculture.

Further polarization of sociePost too long. Click here to view the full text.

your point?


>the society is standing on the brink of something that would drastically change or destroy the existing world order.
this would be great if it were true, sadly it isn't. but you probably don't mean systemic change anyways but rather 'oh nooooes, black ppl in vidya make me cry ;_;'

>the society is standing on the brink of something that would drastically change or destroy the existing world order.

>Europe is the core of our existence


>and multiculturalism caused by mass foreign invasion, with all its consequences, is the danger.


>Throughout our lands, crime rates are rising rapidly,

Again, would be cool. A rise in illegal activity might be enough to get rid of the legal framework os state authority. But the opposite is true mate.

What's the hot new torture from post-late stage capitalism?


VR nightmare simulators. Analyse a persons brain to figure out the worst possible experience for them, then simulate that.


Being alive.


Sometimes, if I spend too much time around positivists, I get this creeping fear that they'll actually discover immortality.A life of perpetual fear and labor, without even the release of death–that is Hell–and there are people fantasizing about how they will make it happen. Apparently well-meaning people, who are all the more terrible and dangerous because of this psychotic break from reality that makes them believe things will get better under capitalism.Of course, there is also the obvious torture use of such a thing. Keep someone alive and imprisoned for centuries, until they go so crazy they start to believe that other people and the outside world were just products of their imagination.

&gt&gt67"Life cannot simply be something to cling to. This thought skims through everyone at least once. We have a possibility that makes us freer than the gods: we can quit. This is an idea to be savoured to the end. Nothing and no one is obliging us to live. Not even death."


yeah but if there was a cosmetic that effectively stopped u from aging wouldnt you take it? like retinol x 1000

Do any of you guys feel like you are just going through the motions of life because it's all you know how to do?


I don't, but I guess that's more due to me not going through any motions at all. All I do is rott in my flat or buy groceries every 5 days.


I'm rotting too, this fucking sucks. My job has such a small amount of staff that at least I'm safe from the 'rona, but fuck this.


yeah basically, and honestly its the worst feeling there is for me, like just treading water. It instantly makes life meaningless when you're just living to live, but sometimes thats all ur circumstances allow for. Fucking sucks.
how i deal with it, friend: random acts of stupid willfulness basically. Get some hobby and make yourself work towards gitting good at it whenever you can. Get impaired at work. Get the supplies to camp/nomad and go on a lil trip. I think the only way to keep your soul is to remind yourself that the world hasnt totally broken you yet and give yourself "muscle memory" for things other than routine or what you're supposed to do. The thing that solidified my anarchism when i was younger was running away from home, but just because of how willful of an act it was. It reminded my soul that i still could choose for myself and change my own life
