(en) France, Alternative Libertaire #224 - Read: Michel Onfray: The Postanarchisme - Onfray or reformist anarchism. (fr) [machine translation]

The last pamphlet published by Onfray is divided into two parts. In the first (and it is always interesting because the human interest) Onfray recounts her childhood, the paths of his revolt and its politicization. Its meetings and lectures. Postures which are also supposed to protest that he is right to give lessons to the world of anarchism: the refusal to integrate small community highbrow Paris to stay live and teach in a technical high school of the Orne for twenty years (which is eminently respectable as the construction of the People's University). The reader notes nevertheless that there is no trace of real activism and such default anchor may partially explain the assumptions and errors. ---- In the second part the author too quickly distributes good and bad points to different thinkers and currents of anarchy. Reinstates Nietzsche and postmodern.

Says a complete break with the authoritarian Communism. Historiography rejects simplistic definitively separates individualism and collectivism. Note that anarchist thought seems paralyzed, even dogmatic. Proposes to revisit reports to the State and elections. Criticism and proposals relevant but often cater to different sensitivities without nuances and libertarian organizations galaxy as if it were the first to ask these debates.

Unfortunately this joyous commotion birth to a mouse. And the book will not fill the vacuum of space it denounces. In rejecting the same movement the Grand evening Marx and Bakunin for their glorification of violence, Onfray denies the materiality of the actual policy that is to say, the confrontation between the classes and the propertied class that violence is committed to use to maintain their privileges. The struggle for libertarian socialism he proposes, moreover rather nice, is the episode of "Noddy lends his red car! "Leaning on a beautiful quote from La Boétie" Be determined not to serve and you're free, "he proposes a militant ethics indeed indispensable. But he concludes by stating that this ethical power multiplied by the cooperation among all people (which was enough to hinder the Lilliputians Gulliver) is enough to forge a new world. Throwing dirty water from the tragic experiences of the twentieth century Onfray also throws the baby. I bet his grandmother will see that his wolf is toothless without danger.
