Surplus Absorption, Realization Crisis, and Imperialism (David Gilbert, November 2015)

David Gilbert, a political prisoner held in New York State since 1981, wrote the following text in 2015, examining the the ways in which capitalism is confronted by, and contends with, crises in surplus absorption and realization, in the imperialist age.

David was not entirely satisfied with this text in the end, however here at Kersplebedeb i thought it actually was pretty thought-provoking and useful, so he agreed that i could put it online, which is what i am doing.

In the late 1970s, I studied political science at Oslo University, by all evidence pretty half-heartedly. With half a heart — mostly because it was a deeply reactionary subject with a unilateral Western perspective on the world, though fortunately the activist students at that time were still able to squeeze into the syllabus theories about unequal exchange between the center and periphery of the imperialist system.

Theorists like Arghiri Emmanuel, Samir Amin, ...........READ MORE

ANCESTORS ROLL CALL! What Did They Think? (poem by Jalil Muntaqim)


 

What did they think?

Tamir Rice, Sandra Bland, Akai
Gurley, Trayvon Martin, Michael
Brown, life precious blood spelled
in the mud FREEDOM …

When will it come?

What did they think?

Eric Garner, Oscar Grant, Sean
Bell, Amadou Diallo whose life
breath echoed the dreams deferred
from Afrikan ancestors through
the middle passage, to Denmark
Vesey and Nat Turner, do you
hear it, are you listening?

Micah heard the torturous
mourning echoing over
the ages forcing us to
remember Shaka Zulu, Queen
Nzinga, the Mau Mau to Steve
Biko and Nelson Mandela.

What did they think?

Riot police after entering the Da Sève Building Occupation at UQAM earlier tonite.

Daring to Struggle, @ UQAM

Riot police after entering the Da Sève Building Occupation at UQAM earlier tonite.

RESPECT to the strike defenders at UQAM and their allies. It was a full-day battle today (April 8), from early morning till late night. I only observed first-hand the crescendo tonite, after the intervention of what was clearly over 100+ riot police, backed up by bike cops, at the Da Sève Building occupation. The resilience of UQAM resisters is inspiring.

For a sense of what happened earlier today at UQAM, and the solidarity and support shown by students when the cops got called in, check out this ...........READ MORE

Craftsmen of World Revolution (by Klaus Viehmann)

What follows is the preface to the upcoming book edited by Gabriel Kuhn, Turning Money into Rebellion: The Unlikely Story of Denmark’s Revolutionary Bank Robbers, to be published by Kersplebedeb and PM Press later this summer. The book tells the story of the “Blekingegade Group” which had emerged from a communist organization whose analysis of the metropolitan labor aristocracy led them to develop an illegal Third Worldist practice. While members lived modest lives, over a period of almost two decades they sent millions of dollars acquired in spectacular heists to Third World liberation movements such as the PFLP and ...........READ MORE

Demand Medical Care for Kevin “Rashid” Johnson!

Dear Friends:

Kevin Rashid Johnson experienced a frightening medical crisis beginning on May 14th, we just got word of it a few days ago. He had crippling pain behind his left eye, blurred vision, and very high blood pressure.  This case of severe hypertension if untreated could cause life threatening medical episodes.

Today Rashid told us:  “Medical neglect is a serious problem here.  I personally have witnessed two inmates die from neglect.  On the night of May 14th, Nurses Doak and Armstrong referred me to see a doctor on May 15th.  I have never seen a doctor.”

“Ooh, momma,  those black cats are out back again”: A terse response to “get up for the down stroke”

The following text has been received from Chairman Shaka Zulu of the NABPP-PC:

What is a correct land policy for the New Afrikan Black Panther Party (NABPP)? Sanyika Shakur raises this question in his critique of Comrade Rashid’s article, “Black Liberation in the 21st Century: A Revolutionary Reassessment of Black Nationalism.”

We have stated many times that we promote New Afrikan independence from capitalism and neocolonialism by, in Rashid’s words, “liberating the areas of empire where we are actually concentrated.” This includes many cities of Amerika, from coast to coast.

We do not want to live in five states surrounded ...........READ MORE

On the Necessity of Armed Struggle Reflections on the RAF and the Question of Moving Forward (Ward Churchill)

The following essay, by Ward Churchill, is the introduction to the recently released The Red Army Faction, A Documentary History – Volume 2: Dancing with Imperialism, available from Kersplebedeb Leftwingbooks.net.

“Never again without a rifle.”
– Italian leftist slogan (circa 1970)

Looking back from the vantage point of more than forty years, it’s clear that those of us in the so-called developed world purporting to be serious about abolishing the prevailing order had by 1970 come to know a few things now forgotten or, perhaps more accurately, consigned to the murky depths of active denial. Among the foremost of ...........READ MORE

Shortly after accused U.S. rioter Kevin Chianella flew to Toronto’s Pearson Airport earlier this month and surrendered to police, he learned of the huge database – tens of thousands of images and video clips – that had been assembled.

Mr. Chianella, 20, of New York, is facing 53 criminal charges, including arson, arising from the June, 2010, weekend when foes of the G20 summit burned four police cars, smashed dozens of windows, ran amok through the city core – causing ...........READ MORE
