  • Marxist Philosophy

    Aug 28, 2011

    It should be clear by now that I think there is, in fact, a Marxist philosophy. Throughout this book, I have tried to show that Marxism is best understood as a philosophical worldview – specifically, a variant of Hegelian Idealism that sees itself and presents itself as materialist. Beyond this, I believe Marx and Engels did hold to a conscious ontological position, a view of the nature and structure of the natural world, one that has come to be called “Dialectical Materialism."

    Aug 28, 2011

    Reflexionar sobre el pensamiento anarquista en pleno siglo XXI nos conduce inexorablemente al debate en torno al problema de la selección de los medios para la consecución de sus fines y la aplicación de métodos de organización concretos frente a las nuevas condiciones que imponen las estructuras de dominación contemporáneas.*

  • Orígenes y evolución histórica del movimiento anarquista

    Aug 28, 2011

    No hay duda que esta periodización requiere ser trabajada en sus detalles y exige un gran esfuerzo de articulación: por un lado, con los procesos históricos que la incluyen y que la condicionan y, por el otro, con las características regionales que la especifican y le otorgan singularidades irreemplazables en cada caso particular.

  • Anarchism in the Oppressed Nations - Book Review

    Aug 28, 2011

    It is widely believed on the radical left that anarchism has been solely a movement of Europe and North America. Marxists and liberals state that anarchism has never had anything to offer the majority of humanity in the oppressed and impoverished nations (the so-called “Third World”) – unlike Marxism or pro-Western liberalism.

  • Ohio Workers Fight Back! - Part II

    Aug 28, 2011

    While I was recuperating from surgery, it was exciting to see and hear about thousands of Ohio public and private workers demonstrating against Senate Bill 5, the anti-working class, anti-union bill passed by the Ohio Senate on March 1 by a 17-16 vote. Workers from the Autoworkers Union, teachers from a community college, single moms, and secretaries demonstrated as well.

  • The Leadership Crisis of the US Ruling Class - Part II

    Aug 28, 2011

    In last year’s issue of the Utopian, I wrote about the leadership crisis plaguing the ruling class of the United States. My article discussed the fact that although the US was faced with dire economic and social problems, the ruling class - the tiny, extremely wealthy elite that controls the country’s economic, social, and political institutions - was incapable of making the political decisions necessary to address those issues.
