A Free Class on the US form of fascism @ Omni Commons
Jul 6 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

In recent years, the growing epidemic of police killings of mostly people of color, the obsessions with “war” (a misnomer for massacre at a distance), the desire to destroy social infrastructures as opposed to conquering territory in these “wars,” the impunity assumed by government, corporations, and police, the supreme court decisions that legitimize this impunity – all these aspects of a growing violence and extremism by institutions of power, suggest that both human concerns and civil society itself are becoming irrelevant to those power institutions. And this, in turn, strongly suggests a system whose name is “fascism.”

There are other names, and other explanations for these phenomena. Police violence can be seen as defending society, or a new Jim Crow. War can be seen as defending the US, or a new globalized imperialism. The technological destruction of social infrastructures by military means can be seen as targetting militants, or preparing invasions. And so on. But the bias toward corporations on the part of institutionalities like courts and administrations brings with it the suspicion (at least) that humans have been becoming irrelevant to the socio-political systems of power. And that makes reference to extreme contortions in the relations of people to power institutions – relations that have to do with structures of violence, structures of acquiescence, and an economy run by corporate structures.

For that reason, we need an understanding of “fascism” in its US context. Many people make the assumption that there is a concrete definition of fascism, that sets forth characteristics and criteria of evaluation. But even using the European experiences of the 1930s, one finds that different countries (Germany, Italy, Spain) produced different forms of fascism. The real question would be, are the political developments occurring around us simply the emergence of new forms of repression, some being carried to extreme, or are we witnessing something more fundamental, namely, the surfacing or resurfacing of a profound cultural and political structure in the US?

For instance, can we actually say that Dylan Roof was simply a lone (white supremacist) assassin committing his carefully premeditated massacre, or was he performing in terms of norms and exigencies of an underlying cultural structure, a part of whose operations has been to racialize not only the social environment, and US global militarism, but class relations as well?

The thesis of this class will be that there is an underlying structure – economic, political, and cultural – that has operated throughout US history, and which can truly be called fascist. The purpose of the class will be to investigate this thesis, to plumb the historical depths of what is signified and revealed by contemporary events, and to see if we can develop an interpretive description of an underlying structure, if it truly exists.

Some of the structures we shall examine in this class are those of racialization, the police-prison nexus, the corporation and corporatization of the economy and the political structure, and the cultural notions of membership in whiteness and white supremacy (for which racism can be seen as an instrumentality). For this purpose, we shall also discuss a critique of white skin privilege, the notion of cultural identity, what it means that class relations are racialized, and other allied topics.

Strike Debt Bay Area is an offshoot of Occupy Oakland and Strike Debt, itself an offshoot of Occupy Wall Street.

Strike Debt – Principles of Solidarity

Strike Debt is building a debt resistance movement. We believe that most individual debt is illegitimate and unjust. Most of us fall into debt because we are increasingly deprived of the means to acquire the basic necessities of life: health care, education, and housing. Because we are forced to go into debt simply in order to live, we think it is right and moral to resist it.

We also oppose debt because it is an instrument of exploitation and political domination. Debt is used to discipline us, deepen existing inequalities, and reinforce racial, gendered, and other social hierarchies. Every Strike Debt action is designed to weaken the institutions that seek to divide us and benefit from our division. As an alternative to this predatory system, Strike Debt advocates a just and sustainable economy, based on mutual aid, common goods, and public affluence.

Strike Debt is committed to the principles and tactics of political autonomy, direct democracy, direct action, creative openness, a culture of solidarity, and commitment to anti-oppressive language and conduct. We struggle for a world without racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and all forms of oppression.

Strike Debt holds that we are all debtors, whether or not we have personal loan agreements. Through the manipulation of sovereign and municipal debt, the costs of speculator-driven crises are passed on to all of us. Though different kinds of debt can affect the same household, they are all interconnected, and so all household debtors have a common interest in resisting.

Strike Debt engages in public education about the debt-system to counteract the self-serving myth that finance is too complicated for laypersons to understand. In particular, it urges direct action as a way of stopping the damage caused by the creditor class and their enablers among elected government officials. Direct action empowers those who participate in challenging the debt-system.

Strike Debt holds that we owe the financial institutions nothing, whereas, to our friends, families and communities, we owe everything. In pursuing a long-term strategy for national organizing around this principle, we pledge international solidarity with the growing global movement against debt and austerity.

OPWG was instrumental in stopping the DAC from becoming a city-wide spying network, and its members helped draft the Privacy Policy that puts further restrictions on the now Port-restricted DAC.
