INCUBUS: Incendiary rants of an apostate anarchist

 

 

Anarchists, base Marxists, other left-revolutionaries and social antagonists don’t seem to have a fucking clue about economics- Now I’d be the first to admit that the subject is deadly dull, lacking the romantic thrill of heroic guerrilla resistance or the adrenaline buzz of a riot, but then, those activities could be considered completely futile without having any idea of how to construct a viable economy in a post-capitalist society. Economics is universally known as the ‘grey science’- and that’s always been handy for the greedy capitalist pig who relies on your disinterest and short attention-span so that he can steal the shirt off your back, the food from your mouth, the time of your life and to sap your spirit. Economics ought to totally underpin the beliefs of all anti-capitalists. Why? Obviously, because if you oppose a social construct like capitalism, you are opposing it as a political

    Anarchists, base Marxists, other left-revolutionaries and social antagonists don’t seem to have a fucking clue about economics- Now I’d be the first to admit that the subject is deadly dull, lacking the romantic thrill of heroic guerrilla resistance or the adrenaline buzz of a riot, but then, those activities could be considered completely futile without having any idea of how to construct a viable economy in a post-capitalist society. Economics is universally known as the ‘grey science’- and that’s always been handy for the greedy capitalist pig who relies on your disinterest and short attention-span so that he can steal the shirt off your back, the food from your mouth, the time of your life and to sap your spirit. Economics ought to totally underpin the beliefs of all anti-capitalists. Why? Obviously, because if you oppose a social construct like capitalism, you are opposing it as a political economy- a complex system, one that demands to be understood if you are proposing to abolish it, and logically, demands an alternative to put in its place- Sadly, anti-capitalists seem to neglect to even bother seriously considering the question, and consequently look like a fucking joke to a lot of people- the very people who would benefit from the destruction and replacement of the system, and especially to the class enemy, who sneer at the ‘impossible utopians’ and ‘idealists’ of the ‘lunatic fringe’. Some reject having a ‘blueprint’ for a future society, imagining that a new economy would spontaneously and magically appear. Anarchists especially, seem more concerned about the rights of battery chickens than the overthrow of the market system that creates them in the first place.
