this article by alex hochuli nails the problems with antifascism as a left strategy under neoliberalism. obviously we have to protect ourselves & our communities from cops & the far right, but that doesn't constitute a political vision. fascism doesn't appear to be the weapon of capital in the 21st century, but pretending it is lets liberals play as defenders of the "democratic" status quo.

mike davis on how marxists should respond to intensifying state repression (from The Antifada episode 125):

"the movement needs to grow through creating survival niches for young radical poor people, working class people... we have to create an infrastructure that gives people opportunities and survival resources, jobs and income... we need to nurture class fighters, and we need to nurture resistance in the communities that are most ready and able to fight."
