Variousness 22: critical theory


The critique of arms

A very interesting and long sympathetic critique of anarchist insurrectionism at Crimethinc.

Europe and Iran: List of Terrorists instead of dialogue, by Stephan Grigat.

What we’ve learned so far from the Karadzic trial – with a comment thread on anti-germanism and the Balkan wars.

Oliver Kamm on Hans Kundnani on Germany’s 1968 generation.


The critique of capital

To shift register slightly, Chris Dillow’s post, Tony Pulis: capitalist lackey, uses a football analogy (Arsene Wenger talking about a tackle) to very neatly explain one of Marx’s key points. Understanding this superficially confusing but actually simple point is central, in my view, to a truly radical Marxian critique of capitalism.
