Immediatism: Against the Corpse Machine

Defining a Post-Leftist Anarchist Critique of Violence

This is an analysis of both the constant presence of violence and its inevitable presence in projected future anarchist communities. The essay starts by describing the problem of the construction of non-violence, then describes the violence in our anarchist history. It analyzes a number of myths and perceptions, such as that "the People" are alienated by violence. The author, who here goes by Ashen Ruins, takes the case of Mumia as an example of how anarchists commonly, at least conversationally, fetishize and misrepresent situations that should not be described in terms of innocence or justice as these ways of seeing such situations are not anarchistic. Pointing out white supremacy throughout the essay, the author challenges anarchists to recognize the anarchistic acts of violence happening all around us, perpetrated by non-anarchist actors, everyday, and to have an anarchist analysis of whatever we encounter.

These 8 episodes of Immediatism podcast cover an array of topics to help you see crowds and terrain through a policing lens, in order to predict what police behaviors will be. Includes policing analysis of crowds, tactics, formations, and communications, gleaned mainly from a military operations manual, along with other mainstream sources of policing methods. The conclusion includes anarchist applications of this knowledge.

Novatore episodes on Immediatism

via Immediatism

Enjoy three new episodes of Immediatism podcast, featuring the writings of Renzo Novatore. These singularly beautiful insurrectionary writings, poetic prose exemplifying individualist thought, should occupy a place on the shelves of those who value insurrectionary and even egoist writing.Toward the Creative Nothing is about an hour long and the favorite piece of the three. I Am Also a Nihilist will give you a quick taste. My Iconoclastic Individualism claims that "All societies tremble when the scornful aristocracy of Vagabonds, Unique ones, Unapproachable ones, rulers over the ideal, and Conquerors of Nothing advance without inhibitions."
