Introducing Episode 28 – Terrorism

This week we will be discussing terrorism. Terrorism is the threat or use of violence in the pursuit of political goals. Obviously states use terrorism all the time to control and put fear in their constituent populations. The border situation terrifies both the people crossing the border and anyone living within range of ICE policing, border “asylum” camps, or the militarized border itself. This week we’ll be discussing anarchist views of terror, Adam Curtis’ Power of Nightmares that links 19th century and 20th century views on terror. We’ll discuss how the 21st century continues in this vein and how anarchists should confound politics of terror but end up being a kind of booster for statist terror itself.
