Essay on ‘Insurrection vs. Organization’ by Peter Gelderloos

May 30, 2009

In this essay Peter Gelderloos looks at some of the relationships and responds to the ongoing debate between insurrectionary and organisational anarchists. He argues for a more pluralistic approach to the struggle, and offers suggestions for either proponents on how to cooperate strategically, and in a mutually beneficial way, rather than furthering to alienate and isolate themselves from each other.

After responding to four relevant texts, he concludes that the question of structure and form maybe less important than some would regard it, and that unless we develop better communication skills and more affluent criticism the limitations and weakness of current structures and strategies could have fatal results.

Although rather lengthy, this could be a useful and insighful text, especially for any person or group who perceive this divide as a hindrance to the movement.
