Dear all,

As Anarchist Radio Berlin we had the opportunity of talking to the workers of
the self-managed soap factory Vio.me in Thessaloniki, Greece.
In our interview they tell us about the origins of this factory take-over by
the workers, what this had to do with experiences in Argentina and they
managed to overcome financial problems. Listen to this audio also to know how
to show solidarity, as Vio.me is threatened by eviction due to a planned
compulsory auction of the premises.

Dear all,

The struggle for the right to the city, against the intensification of
exploitation and valorization is complex and diverse. May it be people in
Berlin stopping an eviction, squatting houses in Amsterdam, taking squares in
Greece or fighting for free public transportation in Brazil. A state with a
massive territory, huge cities and as in so many places a classist, racist
and sexist division of labour that expresses itself among other ways through
the public transportation system. As Anarchist Radio Berlin we had the
opportunity to talk with an activist of the Passe Livre movement from Sao
Paulo, Brazil, about their struggle.

brilliantFrom The Brilliant

In this episode, we respond to some of the wonderful feedback, suggestions, and questions we’ve received from listeners – there is actually so much that we weren’t able to get to all of it in this episode and will follow up on it in the next. We are asked about issues of race; discuss how we have very different backgrounds related to this issue; and end up talking about the importance of, and our frustration with, the way discussions of race are framed in North America. Bellamy addresses some feedback about how FRR was better than his current podcast, leading A! to talk about what it looks like to do meaningful projects in our context. A! responds to criticism of an essay he wrote in the past, connecting it to genocide. Finally, Bellamy escapes a dramatically read critique by filibustering.

0:45: Bellamy’s same old intro – new one on the way for #14.

2:27: The gap of alienation didn’t actually close; torpor – A!’s lack of support for B

3:10: This episode is for the People because the People speak

4:45: Response to e-mail asking us about race; Bellamy complains about local humans; A!’s piece “Non-European Anarchism; limits of North American conversations about race and the term POC; A! “put[s] it delicately”; growing up with good old-fashioned justifications for genocide.

15:00: Beginning conversations about race differently; accusation as time-management; realpolitik vs. complex conversations about race; Bellamy: honkey phallosopher; A! Gets heckled IRL for blogging; framing trumps actual discourse and ideas in most conversations.

22:06: Some friendly trash-talk from The Unterrified; Bellamy already a setting sun at age 28, alongside the ossified A!; The Brilliant is “artsy-fartsy”; How could someone doubt us!?! We are doing things!!; we are not those people, the terrible people with the terrible ideas; Bellamy went from authentic to pompous.

31:55: Benett Freeman on A!’s “Locating An Indigenous Anarchism”; A! gives his first performative reading; Geist and racial realism; genocide as lack of knowledge, death of stories.

38:55: A! gives a second dramatic reading, clearly enjoying himself; Tecumseh, well-known critic of Bellamy; Bellamy gives a near-monologue of seven minutes(!); you might say I’m a casual reifier, not a professional one; ideas as raising banners or being angry about them; A! not-so-subtly implies his perspective is more mature, nuanced than Bellamy’s ardent, naïve one.

Soon to Brno and Prague; Ian and Jeriah next week. More on Houellebecq’s Submission (the void of the West).
350.org as psychosis, Bellamy’s death drive diagnosis of anarchists. More: illiteracy, resistance to drug efficacy,

brilliantFrom The Brilliant

In this episode of the Brilliant, we begin by discussing briefly what made us first call ourselves anarchists: Aragorn! talks about being realistic by demanding the impossible while Bellamy almost mistakes the episode for a therapy session. We then spend a good bit of time on the Paris attacks, an effort which mutates into a discussion about how we frame analyses of distant events. Finally, we use a thoughtful and lengthy critical e-mail from a listener as a point from which to wander through the subjects of revolution, “changing the world”, pessimism versus passivity, and the meaning of joy.

0:44: A new intro by Aragorn!, so you don’t have to keep skipping past the beginning of the show

1:57: Bellamy frames the episode while and A! occupies himself by clicking and making noise in the background;

2:34: A! tells about how he became an anarchist

6:03: B tells about he became an anarchist

8:57: The call of the wild

9:10: A-News does something sweet and nice for a change

11:30: Aftermath of Paris incident

12:50: Reading from the Appelistas’ (anti-state communists) comment on Paris

13:58: Discussion of Paris attacks: humans as neurotic, caged animals; “there’s this thing called History”; people as mutually incomprehensible; the usefulness of an anti-civilization analysis for understanding the event; people performing ideological functions passively vs. actively; “[Civilization:] there’s no way to fight it other than going camping a lot”

29:50: More from the French commies

30:45: Beautiful sentiments; lived communism as something like dual power; rhetoric based on real relationships vs. abstract concepts

34:40: Response to listener e-mail: J’accuse!; the nature of human nature arguments

39:08: Wildness cannot be denied

39:30: chasm on the possibility of revolution; strategy vs. human-scale thinking

42:10: publishing as an indigenous perspective on revolution – “it looks like telling better stories”

45:20: “changing the world” as discrete vs. continuous; pessimism in the context of metaphysic of world as Becoming; anarcho-lexophilia; anarchism, anarchy, anarchist…choose carefully!; metrics of “success”; pessimism vs. passivity

54:45: Anarchy without emphasis; “You’re so fucked up! – Respond!”

57:41: Unmediated joy; joy vs. happiness; Joy is…bro-like?
