Why Iceland is Not in the News Anymore [by Deena Stryker , originally published in OtherJones ] An Italian radio program’s story about Iceland’s on-going revolution is a stunning example of how little our media tells us about the rest of the world. Americans may remember that at the start of the 2008 financial crisis, Iceland literally went bankrupt.
At the very least, the hideous murder-spree of Anders Behring Breivik has highlighted just how strange and foreign much of Europe can still appear to Anglosphere eyes — even in this late age of globalization. The dozens of victims of Utoya island, for example, were not only gunned down in a mysterious place most of us have never heard of, but were participating in a political party “youth camp,” which, though common in European societies, have no real equivalent in North America. In the wake of this site’s recent debates over language, it was similarly somewhat jarring to note just how effortlessly bilingual the killer apparently is, a reflection of a growing European understanding that one’s native tongue is essentially reserved for the private and familial, while anything public or important — even murder manifestos — are best done in English.

This classic statement of anarchism was written by a diverse group of anarchists in Cardiff around 1980 and it is an interesting historical record of the optimism of mainstream anarchist thought at that time.Terry Phillips There is probably more rubbish talked about anarchism than any other political idea. Actually, it has nothing to do with a belief in chaos, death and destruction. Anarchists do not normally carry bombs, nor do they ascribe any virtue to beating up old ladies. It is no accident that the sinister image of the mad anarchist is so accepted. The State, the press and all the assorted authoritarian types, use every means at their disposal to present anarchy as an unthinkable state of carnage and chaos.
