"Whether one is living under a "state controlled market" or a "market controlled state" the state and the market form a feedback loop and the center of the venn diagram between the state and the market expands. This is due to the power consolidation tendency inherent within both states and markets. Conspiracy to maximize power/profit is a natural result of such systems. Whether we use states to fulfill the roles markets play, or use markets to perform the roles states play, or any awkward ratio of the two, socioeconomic hierarchy(and the symptoms of unmet needs and abuse that result) will persist." -Hagbard Celine (HC)


Iliti oba su podjednako distopije kao i bilo kakva njihova kombinacija.

Ova sva `postena telegencija` sto brani `slobodno` trziste i `liberalnu` ekonomiju je ista ona koja je branila `samoupravljanje` u SFRJ, genocid i raspad zemlje sa svojim klerofashistickim diskursom i uopste bilo sta sto je u interesu mocnika.



Cenim iskljucivo `nepostenu` inteligenciju koja misli svojom glavom.

Without changing the most molecular relationships in society — notably, those between men and women, adults and children, whites and other ethnic groups, heterosexuals and gays (the list, in fact, is considerable) — society will be riddled by domination even in a socialistic 'classless' and 'non-exploitative' form. It would be infused by hierarchy even as it celebrated the dubious virtues of 'people's democracies,' 'socialism' and the 'public ownership' of 'natural resources.' And as long as hierarchy persists, as long as domination organises humanity around a system of elites, the project of dominating nature will continue to exist and inevitably lead our planet to ecological extinction.


This pursuit of security in the past, this attempt to find a haven in a fixed dogma and an organizational hierarchy as substitutes for creative thought and praxis is bitter evidence of how little many revolutionaries are capable of 'revolutionizing themselves and things,' much less of revolutionizing society as a whole. The deep-rooted conservatism of the People's Labor Party 'revolutionaries' is almost painfully evident; the authoritarian leader and hierarchy replace the patriarch and the school bureaucracy; the discipline of the Movement replaces the discipline of bourgeois society; the authoritarian code of political obedience replaces the state; the credo of 'proletarian morality' replaces the mores of puritanism and the work ethic. The old substance of exploitative society reappears in new forms, draped in a red flag, decorated by portraits of Mao (or Castro or Che) and adorned with the little 'Red Book' and other sacred litanies.


Nor do piecemeal steps however well intended, even partially resolve problems that have reached a universal, global and catastrophic character. If anything, partial 'solutions' serve merely as cosmetics to conceal the deep seated nature of the ecological crisis. They thereby deflect public attention and theoretical insight from an adequate understanding of the depth and scope of the necessary changes.


To speak of 'limits to growth' under a capitalistic market economy is as meaningless as to speak of limits of warfare under a warrior society. The moral pieties, that are voiced today by many well-meaning environmentalists, are as naive as the moral pieties of multinationals are manipulative. Capitalism can no more be 'persuaded' to limit growth than a human being can be 'persuaded' to stop breathing. Attempts to 'green' capitalism, to make it 'ecological', are doomed by the very nature of the system as a system of endless growth.

Iz Dispossessed citat Odo, revolucionarke cija je misao bila vodilja stvaranja anarhistickog drustva na Anaresu:

“For we each of us deserve everything, every luxury that was ever piled in the tombs of the dead kings, and we each of us deserve nothing, not a mouthful of bread in hunger. Have we not eaten while another starved? Will you punish us for that? Will you reward us for the virtue of starving while others ate? No man earns punishment, no man earns reward. Free your mind of the idea of deserving, the idea of earning, and you will begin to be able to think.” (Odo, 'Prison Letters')
