National-Anarchism: Heroes and Villains

HISTORY is full of heroes and villains, the principled versus the unscrupulous, the noble against the corrupt. On one side stand the forces of international capitalism and the global establishment: the banks, the corporations, the bureaucrats, the scientists, the politicians, the army, the intelligence agencies, the police, the teachers, the court-philosophers, the multi-culturalists, the tax-collectors, the bailiffs and the artificial nation-states. On the other, meanwhile, are gathered the militants of the National-Anarchist resistance: the anti-capitalists, the revolutionaries, the decentralists, the organic gardeners, the barterers, the purveyors of alternative currency, the home-schoolers, the separatists, the free-thinkers, and the makers and shapers of an exciting new future. In this fifth volume in our series, we have asked our contributors to focus on a specific personality from whom we can learn - for good or ill - in the ongoing struggle against centralisation and exploitation. The subjects discussed include The Death of Durutti: A Look at the Power Struggle Between Marxism and Anarchism in Republican Spain; Anarcho-Futurism: F. T. Marinetti, Friend and Foe; Subcomandante Marcos and the Zapatista Movement: Land, Nationhood and Autonomy; Reality is What You Can Get Away With: Robert Anton Wilson; Dimitro Korchinsky: Anarcho-Patriot?; Herbert Marcuse and the Politics of Repression; Karl Marx and the Failure of a Coercive System Toward Anarchism; and Robert Owen: Welsh Radical and Co-operative Pioneer. The contributors are Troy Southgate (Editor), Wayne John Sturgeon, Keith Preston, John Howells, Craig FitzGerald, Jamie O'Hara, Joshua Bates, Colin Lockwood and Nathan Wild.
