Anarchism

Interview with Mark Bray, Part 2, Horizontalism and Anarchism

Mark Bray

The second part of our interview and discussion with historian and author Mark Bray, author of Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook and Translating Anarchy on the Occupy movement. The episode begins with an update on our “Grow Our Roots” fundraiser followed by hosts Markie and Pedro discussing listener feedback.

This show introduces our new segment “Forgotten Histories,” which introduces the personal histories of lesser known revolutionary figures. This first segment features Mexican anarchist, feminist, and PLM organizer, Elisa Acuña Rossetti.

In this portion of the interview Mark Bray discusses the differences between horizontalism and anarchism, looking critically at movements transitioning into electoral politics. He also discusses two different approaches of defining anarchism, one based on a historical approach and another based on a myth generated by the anarchist movement itself.
