what makes the spanish civil war history relevant to us today?

what makes it irrelevant?

given their situation, what would we do differently?

11/4: Potluck + Georges Bataille + The Mayfair Set

Happy Post-Halloween!

At 7pm, we will potluck. Bring food!

Then, at 8pm we will watch Part 2 of the Mayfair Set.

Lastly, at 9pm, if we can keep our food down, we will discuss the horror (ahem…Halloween!!) and beauty that is Bataille (the readings are from last week, which got “cancelled” ).

9/30/14 – Malatesta

Here are three readings by Enrico Malatesta

Here are some questions that relate to Malatesta

  • Other than jargon what is actually different about the problems faced and considered by anarchists of his generation?
  • What mistakes do we share with our forebearers that seems more obvious in reading their material than our own?
  • What can we learn about how we think about race from what anarchists in the 19th century thought?
