My Enemy's Enemy: essays on globalization, fascism and the struggle against capitalismsecond edition
published by Anti-Fascist Forum
The militant anti-fascist group Anti-Fascist Forum has just published the second edition of this book examining right-wing, racist, and demagogic tendencies within the movement against globalization. Entitled My Enemy's Enemy: essays on globalization, fascism and the struggle against capitalism this book brings together a number of English-language texts which have been available on the Internet for some time, but not in hardcopy form.
What follows is a list of texts in this booklet, as well as the short introduction by the publishers.
Far be it from us at Anti-Fascist Forum to argue against fighting the World Trade Organization and other planning bodies of international capital. But the reasons why people choose to struggle against the WTO, and the ideas underlying their fight, are vitally important to all of us who would like to see capitalism overthrown and class society come to an end.
The authors of these texts, most of which have already been published on the internet, have all observed reactionary tendencies within the struggle against global capitalism which go beyond the presence of a few individual crackpots. While the Left currently dominates on the streets and, to a lesser degree, in the popular imagination, this is not necessarily a permanent affair. Without learning the lessons of history and debunking the pseudo-progressivism of the liberal left, revolutionaries may find themselves increasingly marginalized in a movement that whitewashes blood-drenched "local capitalism" and lays the basis for heightened exploitation around the world.
As we have argued in our magazine, Left-wing weaknesses, both intellectual
and organizational, provide a vacuum that is readily filled by the far-right.
At the very least, the anti-WTO campaign is a good example of this. In the
words of the International Militant Anti-Fascist Network, with which we
are affiliated: "Fascism is not the cause of the Left's collapse but the
punishment for it."
