'Anarcho-populism' on Radio 4

There was a show on BBC Radio 4 last night looking at 'anarcho-populism', interviews with David Graeber and Michael Hardt so far, not sure I can listen to any more of it tbh...

It's like the journo/producer looked for the worst possible interviews to deliberately discredit anarchism.

Jesus, this is really painful. The interview is just asserting things about the beliefs of anarchists without any basis in, ya know, the actual anarchist movement.

And 17 minutes in, capitalism hasn't been mentioned once yet....

EDIT: So painful.... angry

Haha, yeah that's a bit painful.

P.S. what's with the anarcho-capitalist colour pairing, guys? wink

Jesus fucking H! I managed 20 minutes but my fortitude ran out when I was informed that the revolutionary vanguard would consist of the young frustrated middle class. The point was proved by the fact that Castro was a lawyer that had failed to get further up the bourgeois ladder! Lollollollollol!

Who are some good representatives of anarchism? Orators i like are all pantheresque like Angela Davis , Huey Newton , Mumia AbuJamal and that dude from DeadPrez. But theyre far from Anarchist. Ive heard Joseph K. a couple of times , he's pretty good.
