About: This is “Echo of Freedom, Radical Podcast (Эхо Свободы, Радикальный Подкаст)”. In each podcast episode a different issue is discussed.

Comments

Leninism has never been a coherent philosophy of the radical political change, it was closer to the opportunistic attempts at rhetoric (often blatantly plariarising from other groups, even when the plagiarised parts create major contradictions). However, there was one original thought that Lenin had had. Well… not really an idea, more like a slogan, but it was quite original and something that can be held as an example of at least one radical thing that came from the Bolsheviki. I am referring to the demand made by V. Lenin that Czarist Russia loses the World War.

To my knowledge no group at that time had such a position that was clearly vocalised. Many were too afraid to anger the loyalists who would commit any and all crimes in the name of their god, nation, ruler, or some other external entity. And for that, and for pretty much nothing else, Lenin can be respected.

But today we have the CPRF rejecting the only rational position that their “philosopher” has proposed. There are staged demonstrations taking place all over Russia supporting the government's decision to not only occupy Crimea, but also push further into the territories of other bordering countries. Forget the “right of all to self-determination”, this is not what is being supported, it is clear even by the language that they are using. Already today people who oppose Russian military presense in Ukraine are labeled as “separatists” (apparently they want to separate the part of Russia that has either just been annexed or where the annexation hasn't even taken place yet).

But enough about CPRF, it is a puppet party that didn't even complain after it became known that Zyuganov (CPRF candidate for the president) has gotten the most votes in one of the ellections. They are so afraid to rock the boat by now, that there is absolutely no distinction between the ruling elite and “Communist opposition”.

It is more important to see how this position reverberates in other circles.

The so-called “communists” in other countries seem to take this situation as the opportunity to write angry critiques of everybody around them, without even a thought of what sollutions exist to the current clash of Russia's and US imperialism. And much of the anarchist movement seems to attempt to side-step the issue. The parallel can be drawn with China's continuous occupation of Tibet, Communist Parties everywhere support it, and anarchists just don't talk about it… after all it is much easier to talk about some first-world problems and feel oneself important.

The whole situation seems shocking to me. Tibet and Crimea have the potential to become the perfect example of why creating a huge hierarchical machine in order to protect oneselves against another hierarchical machine creates an orwellian world where “pigs” are indistinguishable from “humans”. It is absolutely not necessary to support the USA in order to oppose RF, nor does one need to do the opposite.

Despite what the professional revolutionaries tell us, there is nothing wrong with the demand “USA out of Iraq, Russia out of Crimea”.

Сегодня КПРФ продаёт даже собственные принципы ради какой-то дешёвой политической или финансовой наживы. Парафразируя Дональда Рума, я говорю «Никто, кто знает сегодня КПРФ, не уважает сегодня КПРФ!»

Западные СМИ допускают одну очень серьёзную для них самих ошибку в их анализе политики Путина. Здесь я обсуждаю эту ошибку и надеюсь на комментарии от слушателей.

William is an anarchist from the States, who is engaged in Tranzmission Prison Project and The Final Straw anarchist radio. We talk about the range of things: his becoming of an anarchist, his view on the definition of the terms anarchism and freedom, his work and views on LGBT siguation in the USA and mention the current situation in Crimea.

Ни для кого не секрет, что сейчас в России анти-глобализм почти полностью зарос националистическим анти-Американизмом. Есть группы не поддающиеся философии уровня юмореск Задорнова, но их почти не видно из-за крутизны поназывать США «америкосами» и поржать над тем, что мы умные, а они тупЫЫЫе.

И сейчас эта позиция аукается очень даже громко.

С одной стороны Путин и его команда успешно парируют любые вопросы мировой общественности на тему вторжения в Крым ответами, что мол Америка делает тоже самое по всему миру. С другой, их приспешники на самой территории России кричат, что вторгаться надо, а иначе «америкосы» это сделают.

Я повторюсь, Путинцы одновременно используют внешнюю политику США для сравнения с политикой самой России и для декларации оппозиции к этой внешней политике.

И, хотя это может звучать весьма неприятно, но виноваты в этом не столько политики, сколько мы с вами. Конечно-же это они развязали данную пропаганду, но кто купился на неё? Ведь именно мы позволили переключить разговор об империализме в русло тупой неприязни ко всему Американскому. То есть, в то время как американские анти-глобалисты делают всё возможное с их стороны, чтобы дать людям шанс отдышаться; мы с дебильным смехом сами помогаем нашим лидерам делать «как Америка», но от нашего имени.

У россиянина в миллионы раз больше общего с почти любым американцем (даже самым тупЫЫЫм), чем с Путиным и другими чиновниками. И это может быть совершенно немодное высказывание, но оно остаётся элементарной правдой.

В Америке проблема с местными религиозными фундаменталистами, здесь тоже. В Америке проблема с местными нефтедобывающими компаниями, здесь тоже. В Америке проблема с полицейским бесприделом, здесь тоже. В Америке проблема с бюджетом почти целиком уходящим в военку, здесь тоже. Эти аналогии можно продолжать перечислять почти вечно; но всё равно будет круче назвать их «америкосами» и почувствовать прилив идиотской гордости.

Greetings,

More and more we see around us different forms of a simplistic nationalist analysis of the situation in Crimea. On one hand there are people who claim that Ukraine is entirely overrun by Nazi sympathisers (and that Russia should be supported), on another we have the claims that we should support anybody who is fighting the Russian aggression with no thought of the reasons for such fighting. In reality the situation is much more complicated, but the complexity of it should not be used to claim that only two extremist paths can lead to a reasonable solution.

Below are some facts that we should keep in mind when thinking about the problem:

  1. Russia did not intervene in Crimea because of the strong anti-fascist sentiment within the ruling elite. Putin has no problem playing with the fascist ideas and using propaganda tactics within “his” country when it suits the purpose of keeping him in power.
  2. West Ukraine does have the problem with Nazis and their sympathisers. An openly nazist “Svoboda” party does control a significant portion of the political spectrum there.
  3. Maidan protests, while having racists present, were not a reaction to Russian speaking people in Ukraine, but rather were powered by the economic questions. Ukrainian leaders, who were supported by Kremlin, were engaged in a large-scale corruption and theft. It is important to distinguish that not all anti-Russia protests were anti-Russian. Nationalists always try to capitalise on the anti-imperialist sentiment and turn it into their weapon, but that should not be used as a way to silence anti-imperialists.
  4. Theft and “vertical” corruption is the main pillar of current politics in Russia. Nothing from which the rulers cannot make profit gets accomplished. Putin uses Ukraine to shift the focus onto another country, this does not help people in either of two countries with fighting against this theft.
  5. United States has financially and through propaganda has attempted to aid the nationalist West Ukrainian sentiment. That was not done because USA opposes imperialism in principle, but rather because it wants to undermine Putin's imperialist ambitions and further its own.

I am *not* going to end with saying “and therefore you must think …”, rational people should be able to make their own opinions, and it is also possible that i have missed some very important facts. Keep fighting and keep thinking.

Anthony Rayson is the person behind starting of South Chicago ABC Zine Distro, the service dedicated to educating prisoners, education society about the prisoners, and prisoner support in general.

Sound quality may not be great due to the fact that it is the recording off of the skype conversation. The content of the interview is very thought provoking, however, and that should definitely more than compensate for the sound problems.

You can contact South Chicago ABC Zine Distro by writing to PO Box 721, Homewood IL 60430, USA.

This episode is recorded as a response to me watching Police Shoot and Kill Dog in Front of Owner.

I believe that no group should receive some special consideration, and everybody should be responsible for their actions, and only for their actions. Passive voice is OK linguistically, but not politically. We, as the society, should not move responsibility on case by case basis depending on what suits us in that particular case.

We, as anarchists, are almost afraid of specialising in our day-to-day lives, even though in our activism we have for a long time accepted the need for diversity of tactics. Is it logical? What should we be doing?

Here i don't answer all the questions, i think asking them at this stage is more important… plus i don't know one “correct” way in this case.

Обсуждение реакции главного главнюка Российской Федерации на теракты в Волгограде. И вообще я не понимаю, почему больше людей не сравнивает Путина с Бушем младшим?

Старые фото

Иногда просматривая старые фотографии понимаешь, что вся жизнь говно. Ведь всё. что могло произойти хорошее, уже было, а всё что могло произойти плохое будет и ещё раз. Причём чтобы дойти до дешёвой имитации хорошего прошлого надо потрудиться, а для того чтобы побить рекорды негатива, необходимо всего-лишь немножко подождать.

Да и жить продолжаешь, только ради того, чтобы пришедший после тебя человек, который будет хоть немного похож на тебя, страдал хоть немного меньше, но это похоже на попытку опорожнить океан чайной ложкой. Весь мир полон рек, добавляющих воду в тот океан с такой скоростью, что не смотря на все рациононализации о том, что с каждой вычерпнутой ложкой воды‐то должно становиться меньше, ты всё-же начинаешь завидовать Сизифу (а может просто он начинает сочувствовать тебе).

И не надо думать, что это пишется из-за какой-то депрессии или даже плохого настроения. Это просто реальность, факт жизни. И как-то невозможно сказать, что делать.

Вены резать не хочется… и не из-за страха смерти (чего её боятся‐то, ведь она может существовать только тогда, когда тебя нет), а просто из‐за внутреннего вопля «живи». И так живёшь. И иногда делаешь новые фотографии, и через небольшой промежуток времени смотришь на них, и понимаешь, дальше будет только хуже.

В анархическом движении чётко отслеживается разрыв между поколениями. Это не всегда связано с дискриминацией по возросту, а часто выходит просто из различных стилей жизни и отличительных смыслов жизни для людей находящейся на разной стадии своего существования.

Вопрос встаёт, что с этим делать, и как нам развиваться, как анархистам, зная, что такой разрыв часто неизбежен?

Правые силы во многих странах используют анти‐американство для того, чтобы отвлечь людей от истинных врагов, и чтобы заставить их враждовать между собой.

Эпизод «50 - Anti-Americanism» (на английском) обсуждает эту‐же тему.

I have mentioned this debate already, and this is yet another response to the whole thing, voicing my displeasure and anger. You can either view that as a rant or as a call to action, after all i do encourage you to think for yourself.

The good video that i mention is Preventing Rape by the1janitor.

Freedom, Equality, Brotherhood. But Freedom is first! In this episode i discuss why i support equality, but only if it is equality of freedom.

Those who support marriage, slavery, prisons, capitalism, etc. will be offended! (Just like with other things on this podcast).

As you may have heard, Isohunt (the torrent tracker site) is shutting down after the settlement with MPAA. But the internet community does not want to lose all the data that was on the site, and by 'data' we do not just mean the torrent files (they are normally mirrored on other projects like The Pirate Bay already), but the comments and metadata can potentially be lost.

If you can spare some of your bandwidth and about 50 MiB on your hard drive you can help the project to back up the entire site, which will then be uploaded to Archive.org for preservation. The setup will take a couple of minutes, after which everything is automatic and you can just run and forget.

P.S. Please spread the word, we only have a few days.
