(en) anarkismo.net: The myth of "kinematic" unity - by Vectrum (gr) [machine translation]

Date Wed, 9 May 2018 23:17:07 +0300


Movement without memory is a movement without a prospect ---- Anarchism is not a historical continuation of left-wing national liberation fronts nor Marxist-Leninist analyzes. If we do not want to reflect on the struggles of the dead anarchists who were slaughtered by Bolshevism and devoted their lives to building the libertarian revolutionary perspective for the transition to individual, class and social liberation from the bonds of sovereignty and patriarchy for another society liberal values, we have to repurpose the historical thread of anarchism, and not to pursue unflinchingly against the enemies of liberty, like tails crawling behind ethnic-patriotism and statehood on the left. ---- The myth of "kinematic" unity ---- "A Malatesta partner and Trotsky's fierce critic, as well as Stalin, Luigi Berneri was a well-known Italian anarchist organization and traveled to Spain to fight the Spanish Civil War. He was given a seat in the Economic Council but refused to take part in the government. When conflicts between anarchists and members of the Communist Party controlled by Stalin in Democratic Spain broke out, Berneri's house, which shared it with several other anarchists, was attacked by Stalinists. He and his companions were described as "counter-revolutionaries," disarmed, stripped of their papers and forbidden to go out on the street. On May 5, 1937, the Stalinists murdered Berneri along with another Italian anarchist, Francisco Barbieri. "
From the Anxious voices of dead anarchists

The Stalinists prefer to kill anarchists like me and let the fascists defeat from taking on their political responsibilities in Spain in 1937

The voices of dead anarchists remain unsettled today because the systematic in the historical time and their mass killings by Bolshevism tend to be constantly and purposefully forgotten, overlooked, absent within the anarchist circles themselves.

The imprisonment, exile and execution of thousands of anarchists in the world since Bolshevism for two centuries, from the First International and the schism with Marx, Russia in 1917, Spain in 1936-39, Cuba and elsewhere, instead of forming a historical lesson and political stockpile in today for many political groupings are random "lathia" that are not going to be repeated, "mistakes" that are downgraded, ignored and eventually offend the life and work of those who were sacrificed for freedom, libertarian communism and anarchy.

At the same time, Bolshevism's power, with its rhizome and historical dominance in large geographic regions of the planet, implying statation, vertical organization, hierarchy, tends to move and is a point of almost religious worship by a large part of the current "anarchist space "in Greece. The attempt to link anarchist history in Greece with the triptych "EAM-ELAS-MELIGALAS" beyond unrealistic is also dangerous. The intended fronts to the left of the statehood are repeated as a historic tragedy after the Stalinist prevalence in the social revolution in Spain. Already the modern social democracy of the left-wing government as a genuine political expression of state and capital, the same left that until a few years ago participated in the same anti-fascist and individual social fronts and movements together with the "a / a space", continues the same persecution of every anarchist expression by faithfully following the previous political governors of the Greek state in the post- ND and PASOK. The left-wing aims of seizing power are anything but a relationship with anarchist ideas and libertarian values.

Weaknesses and shortcomings in the libertarian political strategy for the transition to social liberalization can not be covered, supplemented and relied on "loans" by the political aims and political strategies of the left. Organization and struggle based on libertarian values have nothing to do with the left pyramid-hierarchical organization and the strategy of taking power from the left. The myth of "kinematic" unity, the imaginary establishment of a "all together" movement is a proven historical recipe for the failure and defeat of the anarchist movement. The left has never ceased to treat imperialism, neonazism, poverty, immigration, etc. as opportunistic themes. in order to propagate to a small or large extent its political position and strategy, presenting its state model as the only way to address the social and political impasse imposed by the bourgeois sovereignty over the lives of the oppressed and exploited. At the same time it is instrumental in the imaginary concept of a "united movement" as it serves to emerge politically, to attract new members and to spend in the next ballot its participation in the "movement". Throughout this process, the co-operation with the left shows nothing more than self-organization, horizontalism, struggle against delegation and statistness, and by extension any libertarian revolutionary prospect for social liberation. As has been shown recently, despite the estimates,

"If the concept of Anarchy has so far been interpreted as a state of utter disorder, this is because people have been taught that their issues are regulated (by the State), that they are governed correctly, and that power is necessary." ANARCHIA THE ANARCHICS ARE WONDERING - by Johannes Moore and Emma Goldman

Anarchism is not a historical continuation of left-wing national liberation fronts nor Marxist-Leninist analyzes. If we do not want to reflect on the struggles of the dead anarchists who were slaughtered by Bolshevism and devoted their lives to building the libertarian revolutionary perspective for the transition to individual, class and social liberation from the bonds of sovereignty and patriarchy for another society liberal values, we have to repurpose the historical thread of anarchism, and not to pursue unflinchingly against the enemies of liberty, like tails crawling behind ethnic-patriotism and statehood on the left.

Movement without memory is a movement without a prospect.
