This week two Scots (James, Will) and a Tan (Dan) discuss the history and contemporary politics of the UK (and Scottish) Labour Party.

James presents his thesis that the Labour Party has never been a workers’ party, was never constituted as a workers’ party, nor has it been sincerely directed towards overthrowing capitalism. We discuss this idea alongside many of the other issues plaguing the Labour Party in their most recent regeneration under Keir ‘I, for one, like the cops’ Starmer.

anomiezine.com Anomie: noun ˈa-nə-mē Social instability resulting from a breakdown of standards and values; also : personal unrest, alienation, and uncertainty that comes from a lack of purpose or ideals. According to French sociologist Émile Durkheim, Anomie occurs when the surrounding society has undergone significant changes in its economic fortunes, whether for better or for worse and, more generally, when there is a significant discrepancy between the ideological theories and values commonly professed and what was actually achievable in everyday life.We believe that we live in an neo-liberal and nihilist epoch and that by spreading the ideas of Libertarian-Socialism through our zine and Podcast we can do our bit to challenge the politics of greed and despair. We also hope to challenge Anarchism’s sacred cows and in so doing rejuvenate Anarchist thought that became constipated in the 20th century.
