Why we should go on with IOPS

As anyone can see, IOPS is not doing well. Although new members keep coming in, the activity level here is close to absolute zero. So a natural question is, Why bother? Why not simply admit that IOPS is a failure and give up?  The essence of my argument for not giving up is that “something like IOPS” is needed, and that there is currently no alternative. I do not feel a particular loyalty to IOPS as an organization, and if I see a better alternative I’ll be happy to jump ship,…

Two Men & Two Words.   In this winter month of dying light that waits to be reborn. Two words, that are also names, embodied and lived by two men, have appeared on our world's conscious stage 'trump' and 'Fidel', and as poor Earth, our only eden sails like the Titanic into an environmental collision, full of drowning refugees who exodus in desperate hope from the consequence of an elsewhere power's blind pretenses & profit. As we all compete in the indignity of nations, to lower our…

IOPS has no spokespersons – yet. No one is mandated to speak on behalf of IOPS. I think it is time to change that. How? In 2003, Andrej Grubacic held a speech entitled Towards Another Anarchism, in which he read an outline of a new anarchist international he had been given to the audience. I don’t know the provenance of that outline (handed down to him engraved on golden plates?) and I have not heard any further news about the initiative, but the outline resembles the basic idea underlying…

Hail King Prick!   The vain glorious dick has been elected King Prick. A mourning of victory for all the worlds pricks!   Hide your son from the colours, go lock up all your daughter's ships. For hear a World full of slaughter happily skips.   Calamity of blind rages, has spoke a joke for all our ages. We will fight the Right                for the Right,                          …

The problem with Parecon is that you have to read about it. Yeah, you could listen to a talk by Albert or Hahnel, but...I mean what are the odds of anyone really doing that. Fuck, what a chore. And it is a fucking chore. One that deserves the use of an expletive. How many people have read the Parecon books, all of them? Really. Even if one excludes the one meant for real  economists. Who'd want to? Jesus. I have. I can't even remember most of them. Vague recollections. Everything just…

All Our World Is Ripples!  by Antonio Carty The ‘end justifies the means’ Machiavelli’s axiom that was gleefully consumed by the powerful & that capitalism proudly lives by, is a ridiculous & mistaken denial of consequence. It leads to the desperation & violent terror of war on all its terrible scales & blindly guides our Titanic environmental collision. Those who do whatever to get to their selected end are not the mature realists they praise themselves to…

yaşamı her koşulda onurlu ve yaratıcı kılmak için birlikte olma imkanlarımızı zorlamalıyız, örgütlenmeliyiz   darbe girişimleri veya iktidarın faşizan düzenlemeleri özgür ve onurlu yaşama karşı yöneltilmiş saldırılardır. kapitalist sistemin bizi sıkıştırdığı, ruhsuzlaştırdığı hayatlarımızda bir nebze açtığımız alanları bile elimizden almaya kalkan bu baskıcı, ölümcül girişimlerin hedefindeyiz.…
