This is one of the


Wars and Classes
The main source of social exploitation, inequality and
wars is global capitalism. Instead of going to war for
bosses by the order of politicians somewhere, it is
smarter to wage a "war" against bosses and politicians
everywhere. The essential struggle for the
overthrowing of capitalism and for lasting peace must
be carried out on a class basis. When carried out
detached from class struggle; anti-war or feminist,
environmentalist-ecologist etc. movements do not have
a chance to be successful.

Libertarian Socialism
The "Real Socialism" experiences of the 20th. century
can be thought of more as how socialism should not be
than how socialism should be. Party dictatorships and
bureaucratic totalitarian regimes under the name of
"Dictatorship of the Proletariat" have nothing to do
with the ideals of equality and freedom. Socialism in
the real sense can be assured with the existence of
institutions such as councils and federations which
are the laborers' own organs of self-rule; where
decisions can be realised by means of direct
democracy, without being subject to any authority.

Bridging Utopia and Today
The question of what kind of world we want is
intertwined with how we are to reach that world.
Neither repeating utopic slogans detached from reality
at every opportunity nor swaying away from a
libertarian social struggle due to various concerns is
the right method. During struggle against problems
this system creates, the infrastructure of a free,
equal and just society must be constructed. Struggling
against today's social problems, while may sometimes
appear as demanding reform or being limited to a
single issue, when ordinary people see that they can
change things by coming together in solidarity, there
is no reason for them not demanding more. When
struggles where everyone has an equal right to voice,
responsibility and decision are seen to be the most
successful struggles, the new society will have been
started to be constructed within and against the shell
of the old one.
