    About "Rod Dubey"

    1. Rod Dubey

      Raoul Vaneigem wrote that Nobody lies groaning under the yoke of inauthenticity twenty four hours a day there are very few alienations which are not shattered every day for an instant, for an hour, for the space of a dream, by subjective refusal Words are never completely in the thrall of Power, and no one is ever completely unaware of what is destroying him Revolution of Everyday Life, Rebel Press, p124 My interest is in the instances of autonomous activity that persist in the face of the spectacle, that resists subjugation, and that with the oxygen from breathing life back into them, may flare in the future in new ways.

    1. A provocative look at Charivari throughout history and how the duality of inverting class power and the often negative effects of humiliation interact. Its power to question and interrupt power are clearly detailed but its inversion in Nazi Kristallnacht and in the humiliation of collaborators in WWII are also analized. Its careful analysis calls for clear minded attention to tactics used. The book should be read by all activists in order to clarify practice and tactics.
