The Dominant Idea by Voltairine de Cleyre

Editor’s Note: She uses a word in the text that today is considered a racial slur, especially in post-apartheid South Africa. I have not edited it out because that is what she wrote, but today such a word would be totally unacceptable. 5,313 more words

Anarchism

Welcome to Voltairinian School Anarchism

Welcome.

Since getting banned from Twatter (I was @der_bluthund) for stupid shit, I have decided to use my time more fruitfully. Hence this blog.

In it I hope to discuss Anarchism as theory and praxis outside of all the other isms  like Communism (oh how many forget what the Communists did to us in Russia when they joined with the army and had their little Leninist counter-revolution) or Syndicalism. 194 more words

Norte, the End of History (2013): Lav Diaz's Take on 'Crime and Punishment'

The film title refers to the Philippines’ northern province Ilocos Norte, where Diaz’s film takes place. In this way, the narrative has a specific locus, it is, at least provisionally, a hint that it is bound to the territory and the nation of the Philippines. 1,197 more words
