Beyond good and evil: the Gaza massacre

26Jan09

More on the no state solution from Joseph K at Libcom. A two-part case study on the leftist politics of ressentiment, starting with an analysis of the dismal anarcho/left-wing response to the AF’s ‘No State Solution for Gaza‘ (linked to here). The second part is an analysis of the stomping of an anti-Hamas banner at an “anti-war” demo (already linked about here). Excellent.

Extract:

The left’s response to Israeli atrocities in Gaza provides a case study in ressentiment. If we want to stop such slaughters rather than participate in the spectacle of them, we need to stop fetishising distant victims and start trying to exercise power over our own lives so that meaningful solidarity becomes possible.
