Ερρίκο Μαλατέστα – Χωρίς εξουσία

«Τι είναι κυβέρνηση; Υπάρχει μια αρρώστια του ανθρώπινου μυαλού που ονομάζεται μεταφυσική τάση, η οποία κάνει τον άνθρωπο, αφού αφαιρέσει την ποιότητα από ένα αντικείμενο με λογική διαδικασία, να υπόκειται σ’ ένα είδος παραίσθησης του τον κάνει να συγχέει την αφαίρεση με το πραγματικό πράγμα». αναρωτιέται ο Ιταλός αναρχικός, εξηγώντας πώς η θεώρηση αυτή παρά του ότι έχει δεχθεί πλήγματα από τη θετικιστική σκέψη και την επιστήμη, παραμένει ακόμα γερά ριζωμένη στο μυαλό της ευρύτερης πλειοψηφίας των σημερινών ανθρώπων. Η ιδέα αυτή περί αναγκαιότητας του κράτους και της ποινικής καταστολής έχει τέτοια επιρροή, που αρκετοί θεωρούν την κυβέρνηση σαν μια ηθική και πραγματική οντότητα, με ιδιότητες λογικής, δικαιοσύνης, ανεξάρτητα απ’ τους ανθρώπους που τη συγκροτούν.

AntifAlice in Monsterland

Racism, xenophobia and fascist obsessions appeared as trends in greek society when the first wave of immigrants entered the country in the early 90’s. But given the exploitation of immigrants from almost all parts of greek society and of any profit the exploiters gained in a time of artificial economic prosperity, these trends were, in a manner, dormant. It makes sense: When they harvest your olives and fruits, when they work in construction and the Olympic Games projects, when they clean your toilets and help your annoying, senile mother-in-law defecate, when they spread their legs in brothels, etc..

Crime and Punishment, by Errico Malatesta

Every anarchist propagandist is familiar with the key objections: who will keep criminals in check [in the anarchist society] To my mind their concern is exaggerated since delinquency is a phenomenon of little importance compared with the vastness of ever present and general social realities. And one can believe in its automatic disappearance as a result of an increase in material well-being and education, not to mention advances in pedagogy and medicine. But however optimistic may be our hopes, and rosy the future, the fact remains that delinquency and the fear of crime today prevents peaceful social relations…

Έγκλημα και τιμωρία, του Ερρίκο Μαλατέστα

Στο μυαλό μου η ανησυχία αυτή είναι υπερβολική μιας και η παραβατικότητα είναι ένα φαινόμενο ελάχιστης σημασίας συγκρινόμενο με το μέγεθος των διαρκών και γενικών κοινωνικών ανισοτήτων. Και κανείς δεν μπορεί να πιστέψει στην αυτόματη εξαφάνιση τους ως συνέπεια της αύξησης στην υλική ευμάρεια και την παιδεία, χωρίς να αναφερθώ καν στις εξελίξεις της παιδαγωγικής και της ιατρικής.

Errico Malatesta – Amor y anarquia (número 31)

Al principio puede parecer extraño que la cuestión del amor y todas las que le son conexas preocupen mucho a un gran número de hombres y de mujeres, mientras hay otros problemas más urgentes, si no más importantes, que debieran acaparar toda la atención y toda la actividad de los que buscan el modo de remediar los males que sufre la humanidad. Encontramos diariamente gentes aplastadas bajo el peso de
