La muerte verdadera de la política

La muerte verdadera de la política

UN EJEMPLAR ORIGINAL DE EDICIONES INÉDITOS
originalmente publicado en inglés el 23 de enero 2017

Trump ya ha tomado el puesto de presidente de los EEUU y los de la Izquierda y los liberales han salido en masa para denunciarlo, incluso congresista & líder de derechos civiles, John Lewis, quien lo toma como ilegítimo. Pero lo toma como ilegítimo no por que, cual como dice, no porque Trump tiene una agenda racista, sexista, aislacionista, ultra-nacionalista o anti-gay pero porque piense que es el sujeto de una conspiración rusa. (Aunque hemos tenidos presidentes que han sido amos de esclavos, violadores, líderes de genocidio, fervorosamente anti-gay y por lo tanto han cumplido sus términos sin reproche.) Otros lo reprenden como un neo-fascista quien quiere rehacer 1939 sobre el territorio estadounidense. La Izquierda radical estadounidense clama para revivirse y  crecer sus números. Pero por lo tanto este Izquierda radical ha decidido, cada vez más, usar el lenguaje de la política en vez de una lenguaje de la revuelta (o revolución). A vez en cuando este Izquierda radical habla del comunismo como un conjunto de asuntos cual los proletarios deben acostumbrarse, en vez de ser el medio por cual los proletarios van a liberarse.

The Real Death of Politics

The Real Death of Politics

AN EDICIONES INÉDITOS ORIGINAL

Trump has been sworn in, the Left and Liberals have come out in droves to denounce a president whom Congressman & Civil Rights Leader , John Lewis, has declared illegitimate. Though the grounds for illegitimacy, as he states, are not necessarily based on Trump’s racist, sexist, isolationist, ultra-nationalist, anti-queer agenda but rather that he is the subject of a Russian conspiracy. (Though we have had presidents who have been slave-owners, rapists, leaders of genocide, fervently anti-queer and yet they were able to complete their terms.) Others more generally decry Trump as a Neo-Fascist set to bring 1939 onto American soil. The U.S. Radical Left clamors to revive itself and swell its numbers. Though this Radical Left has chosen, more and more so, to speak the language of politics rather than of revolt (or revolution). This Radical Left sometimes speaks of communism as a set of affairs to be installed, and to which proletarians must be won over to, rather than the means by which proletarians will free themselves.

NICE SHIT FOR EVERYBODY

NICE SHIT FOR EVERYBODY

this text was first written in 2013 by one of us and later published by Hostis in their first edition in 2014.

We hereby reject any form of self-imposed austerity. We posit that we want nice shit for everybody and that is not only feasible but desirable. We will not put forth graphs announcing how much work (or not) will require such a project but will state that such a project is part of our desire for communism. We hereby reject all forms of feigned punk slobbiness, neo-hippie shabby chic, or pajamas in the outdoors. We see the stores in the bourgeois parts of town (& the newly-gentrified ones too) and say that we want that shit and even more. Capitalism is that which stands in the way of us having the shit we want with its hoarding of commodities only to sell them to highest bidder. We’ve been told to live with less and less by not only Green Capital, but by the Church, by our liberal “friends” and even by fellow comrades. Fuck that shit. Nah: if we’re going to be putting our shit out on the line it’s definitely not going to be so that I can live simply.
