What are they trying to do to us?

Posted on March 29, 2021 by winter oak A brief overview (also available as printable pdf) Life has become very strange indeed for billions of people since March 2020. We are no longer allowed to do what we always did, see who we want to see, live freely in the way we fondly imagined we were entitled to do. Everything has changed. Now we have to check the latest restrictions on our movements and activities. We can’t go to concerts, football matches, pubs or cafés. We are told to avoid […]

Anarchists and the Coronavirus

Posted on April 3, 2020 by winter oak Special report Moments of crisis like the one we are currently experiencing can allow us to see through the surface of our world and grasp with greater clarity some hitherto hidden truths. It is with this in mind that we present this provisional and far-from-comprehensive analysis of the reaction to the coronavirus situation from anarchist and left-libertarian outlets. Mutual aid Striking back Criticism of capitalism We are not “all in it together” Against the police state No to the “new normal” Limits […]

For Nature and Freedom!

Posted on May 11, 2021 by winter oak Three years ago we published an article explaining how the idea of a nature-based philosophy had been smeared by its opponents. Apologists for the industrial capitalist system, masquerading as “left-wing” and even “environmentalist”, constantly sought to suggest that there was something “fascist” about such an outlook. We quoted “social ecologists” Janet Biehl and Peter Staudenmaier in their attack on deep green thinking, in which they claimed that so-called Nazi themes such as organicist holism “have a chilling currency within contemporary ecological discourse”.

Fascism, Newnormalism, and the Left

July 26, 2020 by Paul Cudenec Sometimes secondhand books can come into our possession in ways that make it quite clear they need us to read them. Such was the case with Le fascisme italien by Pierre Milza and Serge Berstein, (1) which reached me by means of a random sequence of events including a friend moving flat, an unexpected traffic jam and a small public park on the outskirts of Paris. It did not disappoint and, as I am about to explain in more detail, helped me to see […]

Klaus Schwab and his great fascist reset

Orignally posted on October 5, 2020 by winter oak Born in Ravensburg in 1938, Klaus Schwab is a child of Adolf Hitler’s Germany, a police-state regime built on fear and violence, on brainwashing and control, on propaganda and lies, on industrialism and eugenics, on dehumanisation and “disinfection”, on a chilling and grandiose vision of a “new order” that would last a thousand years. Schwab seems to have dedicated his life to reinventing that nightmare and to trying to turn it into a reality not just for Germany but for the […]

Are you ready for the Fourth Industrial Revolution?

( In the context of North American anarchism, surprisingly little has been written about the Fourth Industrial Revolution. The same cannot be said of the radical scene of Europe. The text you are about to read is excerpted from the latest issue of the anarchist journal 325, published by one of the world’s foremost insurrectionist websites. The reader is highly encouraged to check out 325 #12, which is likely to forever alter the political consciousness of those who take the time to engage seriously with the ideas presented therein.) “One […]
