We will be reading Fredy Perlman’s classic Continuing Appeal of Nationalism
This will be an evening of discussion about the origins and principles of anarcho-communism.
1) We will read a modern introduction from Libcom.org
2) We will read Alexander Berkman’s thoughts on the issue from What Is Communist Anarchism?
3) Finally, the conclusion of Kropotkin’s classic The Conquest of Bread
The reading for July 10th will be G20 Conspiracy Case: The Inside Story (this story has been removed from the Crimethinc site due to “some of the claims in the text (which) are extremely controversial. In response, we are withdrawing it until we can produce a version that draws on more perspectives.” Being this happened 9 months ago it is safe to assume this will never happen.)
We will be discussing The Politics of Being Queer by Paul Goodman.
We will be reading The Future Is Kid Stuff by Lee Edelman. It is the first chapter from his book No Future.
We will be reading The Right’s Tough by Robert J. Sawyer. Check back in this space as there was suppose to be a second reading but it has yet to be emailed to us.
the second reading is here, courtesy of j.j. (this is a short story by stanislaw lem, a polish science fiction author popular in russia).
We will be reading The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka.
We will be reading Lewis Call’s essay entitled Structures of Desire: Postanarchist Kink in the Speculative Fiction of Octavia Butler and Samuel Delany.
Is this month’s theme kink, science fiction, or something else? I thought we were done with Postanarchy already. Bring suggested readings and we will figure it out.
