She argues that the vastly disproportionate imprisonment (and the resultant disenfranchisement and exclusion from numerous aspects of mainstream society such as education and employment) of African Americans constitutes the single most important impediment to equality and civil rights in the US. -Chapter Two, "The Lockdown" - Part 1-

The Problem with Infoshops and Insurrection: US Anarchism, Movement Building and the Racial Order

'The Problem with Infoshops and Insurrection: US Anarchism, Movement Building and the Racial Order' was written by Joel Olson. Joel Olson argues that the anarchist movement in the US has failed to recognize the central importance of white supremacy in shaping American capitalism, ignoring anarchist struggles of peoples of color in US history; it has also failed in movement building in favor of the more fragmented tactics of covert direct action and autonomous spaces.

Insurrection vs. Organization, Part Two

When there are two different strategies for revolution, many of us do not see this as two paths for different groups of people to walk, taking their own while also trying to understand the path of the Other, but as evidence that somebody must be Wrong (and it is almost certainly the Other). An extraordinary essay on the differences between insurrectionary anarchists and organizational anarchists (anarcho-communists, syndicalists, etc.) and why both groups MUST work with each other because they both lack something on their own.

Let's Destroy Work, Let's Destroy the Economy -Part Two

"Let's Destroy Work, Let's Destroy the Economy" is a book consisting of essays written by Italian insurrectionary-anarchist Alfredo Bonanno. He encourages us to view work differently and to rethink the common revolutionary goal of making working conditions better. Bonanno argues that we must instead destroy work in its entirety and gives compelling reasons for its abolition. His essays are full of sound logic and and are great reading (or listening) for anyone who wants to challenge themselves and their beliefs surrounding the systematized slavery that we call work. Part Two includes chapter 2: 'Lets keep our feet on the ground, please', chapter 3: 'space and capital', and chapter 4: 'self-management'.
