Frédéric Lordon, François Ruffin, Bernard Friot, Etienne Chouard are the figureheads. They all have in common is to propose a radical change of society based on the call to "citizens". But what they really defending? ---- If these proposals may seem attractive at first, they have often disruptive solutions socialized salary prioritized according to the type of degree, return to economic protectionism and strong state, links sometimes troubles with Alain Soral in the case of Stephen Chouard ... ---- Visit our articles devoted specifically: ---- illusions left ---- Bernard Friot ---- Étienne Chouard ---- June 2 in Montpellier, the local collective of Alternative Libertaire organized a debate on citizenists thoughts. The latter has full house with 70 people present and exciting debates that ultimately lasted more than 3:30.

His goal was to bring a critical constructed of thought. Indeed, within the movement standing Night and more generally the movement against the "Labor Law", we see a strong development of current that could be called citizenist .

You can listen again below the audio podcast Alternative Libertaire Montpellier including all discussions:

What is it citizenism name? From Alternative Libertaire on Vimeo .

Interventions were cut into parts that you can download in PDF format:

1. What citizenism?

Political thought that is part of representative democracy, but who claims to renew or regenerate sometimes with "radical" solutions, but ultimately not offering only illusory reforms.

pdf link part 1

2. Presentation of the thought of François Ruffin and Frédéric Lordon.

If they can have interesting ideas, their final perspective is part of the Republic and the Nation, carried by a form of Keynesian economic sovereignism.

3. Presentation of the thought of Bernard Friot.

His salary socialized proposal is quite unusual. Above all, it offers a strange company: plant managers, retirees who do not stop working, wage gradations compared to diplomas.

Read his review here by Alain Bihr .

pdf link part 3

4. Presentation of the thought of Stephen Chouard.

It adopts a citizenist speech. He advocates an overhaul of democracy by a passage in the Athenian direct democracy. Unlike the others, who are people with whom we can fight despite our disagreements, Chouard is beyond the pale. It has a muddled speech that clearly is the Trojan horse of the extreme right.

To better understand .

5. What revolutionary perspectives?

For us citizenism is not satisfactory. This is the class struggle in the social movement in struggles that emancipation born. It will come from the street, will not be limited to a national space, and will take a revolutionary form. It is embodied in libertarian communism!
