How to Be an Anticapitalist Today
Give up the fantasy of smashing capitalism. Capitalism is not smashable, at least if you really want to construct an emancipatory future. You may personally be able to escape capitalism by moving off the grid and minimizing your involvement with the money economy and the market, but this is hardly an attractive option for most people, especially those with children, and certainly has little potential to foster a broader process of social emancipation.

If you are concerned about the lives of others, in one way or another you have to deal with capitalist structures and institutions. Taming and eroding capitalism are the only viable options. You need to participate both in political movements for taming capitalism through public policies and in socioeconomic projects of eroding capitalism through the expansion of emancipatory forms of economic activity.

We must renew an energetic progressive social democracy that not only neutralizes the harms of capitalism but also facilitates initiatives to build real utopias with the potential to erode the dominance of capitalism.

Abolition and Emancipation Were Not the Same Thing | Essay | Zócalo Public Square
Too many of these stories are unknown, because their subjects were ordinary people who did not make much of an impression upon history. Rose Herera used to be one of them. But luckily, I stumbled across her story tucked away in an obscure Senate report, published in 1866, about a rumor that black people in the South were being kidnapped and sold into slavery in Cuba.

Even though I am a professional historian of 19th-century America, I had never heard of this rumor, or Rose Herera, but the report piqued my curiosity and I wanted to learn more. So I began my own quest to track Rose Herera’s life, and the fate of her children, across sacramental registers, bills of sale, newspaper ads, city directories, court minutes, lawyers’ effects, and dead letters in Washington, New Orleans, and Havana.

Die nächste Revolution / Revolutionäre Politik weiß heute mehr als die Grundlagen, die in den Schriften der Klassiker stehen – aber diese Grundlagen braucht sie (junge Welt)
Revolution ist Arbeit, die nicht bezahlt wird, gegen Arbeit, die schlecht bezahlt wird. Revolution ist Gewalt gegen Gewalt. Revolution heißt Verluste an Menschenleben, mindestens aber an Menschenglück, an Muße, auch an sozial zuträglicher Produktivität. Revolution heißt Irrtümer, Fehler und Verbrechen auch bei denen, die das Schlechte ändern. Wer hat denn Spaß an Irrtümern, Fehlern und Verbrechen, wer ist verrückt genug, sich darauf zu freuen? Man muss die Revolutionen nicht lieben, hat Peter Hacks geschrieben. Es gibt wenige, die es über sich gebracht haben, eine Revolution zu lieben, etwa die große Revolutionärin, in deren Namen wir hier versammelt sind – Rosa Luxemburg besaß die moralische Kraft dazu, die intellektuelle Integrität, den furchtlosen Weitblick, der sah, dass nichts sonst weiterführt. Das kann man nicht von allen verlangen.

Der Imperialismus teilt und herrscht. Aber er zwingt die Beherrschten aller Kontinente auch in einen neuen Zusammenhang miteinander, den sie begreifen und gegen die Herrschenden und Besitzenden kehren könnten.
