Sub titel: Insurrection, movement, commons
Subversion is a truly human phenomenon. To subvert means to bring to the surface what is hidden beneath the forms of bourgeois respectability, a respectability in which every human capacity has its price. To subvert is to revolt against any system economic, political, cultural or religious where humanity is no more than an object to be manipulated, exploited, and dominated. Against the enclosures of our time, cycles of struggles build new commons of resistance, forming the basis for a new world from the insurgencies against the existing order. To subvert means to be realistic, to demand the impossible. With Human Autonomy as its Subject, with Dignity as the Purpose of the Human Subject, with Solidarity as the Purpose of Human Subjectivity in Action, this collection examines the socio-historical constitution of capitalism and its dynamic. It analyses the contemporary means of subversion-in-movement, and assesses the trajectory of struggles in the Americas, from Argentina to Mexico, from Bolivia to the United States of America. Authors include the Midnight Notes Collective, Massimo De Angelis, Werner Bonefeld, Paul Zarembka, Mariarosa Dalla Costa, the Leeds May Day Group, Harry Cleaver, Nick Dyer-Witheford, Stevphen Shukaitis, Ana Dinerstein, George Caffentzis, Conrad Herold, Patrick Cuninghame, and Sergio Tischler.
