Crime Thought: Theorizing CrimethInc.

Format: book


Out of stock



“These essays are not intended to be a full-fledged critique of CrimethInc.’s theory. Instead, their aim is to function as a way to move beyond CrimethInc.’s own theoretical autopoiesis. Due to its instant accessibility, continuous multimedia presence, and longetivity, CrimethInc. has been one of the entry-points into contemporary North American anarchism for fledging antiauthoritarians since the turn of the century. It is easy to fall into the simplicity of its romantic rhetoric, but to uncritically languish there as a complete system of thought presupposes a naive conception of autonomy and freedom that would do well to reevaluate its relationship to critical theory.”
