    The Government of No One by Ruth Kinna review – the rise of anarchism

    From terrorists to Groucho-Marxists ... the story of one of the most daring political currents of the age. The first suicide bomber in English literature is a crazed anarchist professor in Joseph Conrad’s novel The Secret Agent who stalks around London wired up with explosives. Entranced by a vision of pure nothingness, he has only to squeeze a rubber ball in his pocket to annihilate the present and clear a space for a utopian future. His political comrades are a bunch of sinister continental freaks who succeed in blowing up a young boy with learning difficulties. Anarchism, in short, has something of an image problem. Even Ruth Kinna, in this sympathetic, impressively well-informed history of the movement, has to admit that it has had its fair share of bombers and assassins. Yet she also illustrates its extraordinary creativity. Born in the 19th century, a brainchild of the Unholy Trinity of French libertarian socialist Pierre-Joseph Proudhon and Russian revolutionaries Mikhail Bakunin and Peter Kropotkin, anarchism rejected what it saw as Karl Marx’s narrow economic and proletarian viewpoint. Nevertheless, the two creeds have a lot in common. Both believe in class struggle, the abolition of private property and the overthrow of the state. Both see the role of the state as defending private property, a view that you can also find in Cicero. Marx thinks that the state will eventually wither away, while anarchists believe in helping it on its way as soon as they can. Where the two camps really collide is on the question of power. Power for Marxists is in the service of material interests. It isn’t the last word. Anarchists agree about the material interests, but see power as more primary than that. Domination of any kind is to be rejected. Anarchism isn’t opposed to government as such, just to any form of it that isn’t self-government. For many, this includes democracy, which involves the tyranny of the majority over the individual. Marxists will work with liberal democracy, whereas anarchists won’t. For them, it is just a more kid-gloved kind of coercion. Yet no society can survive without coercion. There is nothing despotic about being made to drive on the left, or stopping your flatmate from playing the bagpipes all night. Rules can facilitate freedom as well as obstruct it: if everyone drives on the same side of the road, I’m less likely to end up in a wheelchair. The political state is indeed a source of lethal violence, but it also arranges for children to learn how to tie their shoelaces. Not all power is repressive, nor all authority obnoxious. There is the authority of those who are seasoned in the struggle against patriarchy, which one would do well to respect. Telling someone something they need to know isn’t always “hierarchical”. Nor is knowledge, as some slightly wackier libertarians have maintained. Some anti-hierarchical anarchists believe that all opinions hold equal weight, in which case the view that all opinions don’t hold equal weight is also true. When the young Noam Chomsky (an anarchist, no less) came to Europe in the late 1960s with vital information on the political turmoil in the United States, some students refused to listen to him on the grounds that lecturing is a form of violence. Even so, anarchism has been among the most daring, imaginative political currents of the modern age, from the Paris Commune of 1871 to the Occupy movement of 2011-12 (20,000 Parisians were slaughtered in the wake of the Commune, a fact that those appalled by the French revolutionary terror generally fail to recall). By the end of the 19th century, the movement had become a global presence from Uruguay to Japan. Rejecting state socialism and revolutionary vanguards, it devoted itself instead to direct action, self-governing cooperatives, experiments in education, flexible networks and grass-roots organising. Kinna’s book is packed with information about this rich history, all of it delivered in a curiously toneless, styleless way. Some of the pioneering figures of modern anarchism, such as Emma Goldman and Paul Goodman, are appropriately honoured. Anarchists don’t like restrictive labels, including the word “anarchism”. Yet the term isn’t all that restrictive: as Kinna points out, it includes class-struggle anarchism, social anarchism, anarcho-syndicalism, post-left anarchy, individualistic anarchism and quite a lot more. Post-left anarchy, one of whose advocates once sponsored something called Groucho Marxism, is basically just a matter of having a good time. There are those activists for whom there can’t really be anarchist parties or political programmes, since parties and programmes are part of the problem rather than the solution. Anarchist politics thus becomes a form of anti-politics. You can only bring down the state by organising, but organisation hampers the free spirit. Disruption and transgression thus become the order of the day. Only by keeping on the move can you avoid becoming part of the system yourself. Pressed to an extreme, freedom means freedom from the constraints of other people, and thus an unbridled individualism. This was the view of the 19th-century thinker Max Stirner, with his so-called philosophy of egoism. (As some wag remarked, one would like to know what Mrs Stirner thought about that). Philosophical egoism, however, has not had many takers in anarchist circles, as opposed to the common-or-garden variety. What has been more popular is the view that human nature is inherently good but is corrupted by external powers. One of the many problems with this view is that power works as well as it does because we internalise it, so that to violate it would be to violate ourselves. The Government of No One ends with a useful set of brief anarchist biographies, but overlooks the career of Michel Foucault, one of the most influential of modern political thinkers, who was an anarchist at heart. There is also no entry for Edward Carpenter, who around the year 1900 ranked among Britain’s most celebrated anarchist writers and was a pioneer of gay politics. I should declare a personal interest in drawing attention to this fact, since I once spent four dreary years writing a doctoral thesis on him. . Humour by Terry Eagleton is published by Yale.

    Why are celebrities 'trademarking' their Instagram posts and is it a hoax?

    From Usher, to Julia Roberts and Niall Horan, celebrities have been sharing the same copyright word salad in Instagram posts. Composite: REX/Shutterstock;Invision/AP;Getty Images/Capitol Music GroupHi Naaman. Perhaps you can help me. I hear that it’s apparently really important that I trademark, copyright and patent my Instagram photos or Facebook might steal them? Is this true???Hi Steph. Before I say any more, I want to make it clear: I do not give you or any entities associated with you permission to use my pictures, information, messages or posts, both past and future, under UC 1-308- 1 1 308-103 and the Rome Statute.Pinky swear I won’t do that. But actually, what are you talking about? Did you accidentally swallow a legal dictionary?No I’m just doing my bit to share the latest Instagram phenomenon and protect my precious photos.From actor Julia Roberts, to musician Usher and even the US energy secretary, Rick Perry, the same word salad has been doing the rounds lately.> US Secretary of Energy on his personal Instagram account. @SecretaryPerry pic.twitter.com/939zhde5Eg> > — Yashar Ali 🐘 (@yashar) August 21, 2019> Countless celebs including Judd Apatow, Julianne Moore, Julia Roberts, Debra Messing, Taraji p Henson, Beyoncé’s mom, Wacka Flocka Flame and more have spread this hoax to millions and millions of fans pic.twitter.com/guc1X8F6WU> > — Taylor Lorenz on VACATION (@TaylorLorenz) August 21, 2019The copy-pasted image claims Instagram is introducing “new rules” where they can steal your photos, reveal your messages and more – unless you don’t post the exact same message.“It costs nothing for a simple copy paste, better safe than sorry,” it says.But this is clearly a hoax. Right?Oh yeah. If the incoherent grammar, varying font sizes, and reference to arcane laws didn’t tip you off, then it may be familiar from the fact it’s been around since the early 2010s.In fact, this latest post is based on a 2016 Facebook post that thousands of people shared – that was itself based on posts from 2012. It’s basically word for word. You can see the word Instagram has been poorly stretched over the word Facebook. Come on!It’s not clear why it’s doing the rounds again, but now it’s become an ironic meme in itself, with new iterations (like one from the Daily Show’s Trevor Noah) clearly poking fun at it. One Direction’s Niall Horan shared it, but then clarified in the comments, “it’s absolutely not [serious] Hahahahah”, before deleting it.> You see @NiallOfficial , on Instagram they don't understand sarcasm neither pic.twitter.com/l1phCtASNe> > — ɾօcíօ❁ (@xgirlcrushxx) August 21, 2019What even is the Rome Statute?It’s the international treaty that founded the International Criminal Court. It established that the ICC has jurisdiction over, among other things, genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes.I mean, I know sharing smoothie pics and boomerangs of champagne glasses clinking should be a crime, but …But yes, that seems harsh. Don’t worry though, as the Guardian’s previous reporting on this pointed out, it has no legal effect. You can not be tried in the Hague by Instagram.The law “UCC 1-308- 1 1 308-103” also does not exist. In the US, the UCC is the Uniform Commercial Code, which governs sales contracts and commercial transactions. But that actual string of numbers is nonsense, and nothing else in the code would help you override the existing terms of service you signed up to.In all seriousness though, don’t social media accounts technically already have your permission to use, modify, redistribute your images etc. simply because they need it in order to like, work? Instagram is literally an image sharing platform.Yes, things the post purports to block, like “permission to use my pictures”, are essentially all that Instagram does.There is a kernel of truth to the whole thing. These terms of service frequently change with no warning, or reach into parts of your data you wouldn’t expect, and people are right to be worried and try ways of improving their digital rights.But in a nutshell, legally, the post has no effect. If you think Instagram’s terms go too far, you must reject the terms of service and not use the app.Instagram’s current terms of service grant it an automatic license to use anything you post. This is “non-exclusive, fully paid and royalty-free, transferable, sub-licensable [and] worldwide”. This means it can sell the right to use your photo to a third-party, without your permission and without paying you.And they can change these terms and conditions when they want – and if you disagree, all you can do is delete your account. This is actually quite standard across a range of companies, and not just social media.Haven’t we been internetting for long enough now that we don’t believe badly photoshopped screenshots over, like, actual privacy policy updates from companies that get emailed to people by law? Is this a boomer thing? It’s definitely a boomer thing, right?It’s the most delightfully boomer thing. Older people are more likely to share fake news, studies have shown. And the format of shareable pictures with grainy photoshop is a classic of the genre.Former West Wing actor Rob Lowe was in fact publicly roasted by his more internet-literate sons for posting it. “Oh god,” said Johnny Lowe. “You literally have a son who went to law school. @matthewwardlowe come get him”.And without a doubt, a very similar thing will be back. I can’t wait.

    Also lovingly called the Govinda Festival or Gopalakala, Dahi Handi is a grand Hindu festival that is celebrated with great enthusiasm and fervor, especially by the young men in Maharashtra, Mathura, Goa, and Gujarat. The festival is inspired by the childhood stories of adorable, albeit naughty, Lord Krishna, who is considered to be the eighth Avatar of Lord Vishnu. This is because His dialogue of immortality in the Bhagwad Gita made spirituality accessible to ordinary people as it did not require renunciation from the world, instead of encouraging world acceptance.

    Amitabh Bachchan And Jaya Bachchan's Unseen Dance Performance At Abhishek-Aishwarya's Sangeet

    Bollywood couple, Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's wedding is still considered an affair beyond fairytales. The duo had tied the knot when there were no hashtags and we knew nothing about couple goals. Yet, their grand wedding had left a huge impact on all of us. We still remember sitting in front of television sets, in the hope of getting one glimpse of the bride and the groom. (Recommend Read: Prabhas Reacts To The Rumours Of Him House-Hunting With Alleged Muse, Anushka Shetty In Los Angeles)On April 20, 2007, Aishwarya and Abhishek exchanged the wedding vows and left the entire nation starry-eyed. Every time, we see them together our heart rushes a beat and we crave for love like 'Abhi-Aish'. Recently, designer duo, Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla made us nostalgic when they posted a series of unseen pictures from Aishwarya and Abhishek's grand wedding. In one of the pictures, we can see Aishwarya looking prettiest in a sky blue lehenga and Abhishek complementing her in the designers' gorgeous creations. Take a look at the unseen pictures below:They had captioned the pictures as, "2007: A wedding beyond a fairy-tale! Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla and the Bachchans go a long way. Jaya Bachchan embraced their work ever since the opening of their first boutique, Mata Hari. She has always been an avid supporter of their creative visions and 'The Boys' as she affectionately calls them, have known Abhishek and Shweta since they were kids.So designing for Abhishek's wedding with Aishwarya was a highly emotional and creatively satisfying experience for the duo. In the picture above, they dressed the groom in a blue silver brocade short Sherwani adorned with gota resham, stones and pearls. For Aishwarya, they created an embroidered pastel resham ghagra set that shone with sequins and stones and a dupatta that was just as rich in details. The wedding was an epitome of glamour and grace and the memory of it remains fresh in our hearts." (Also Read: Charu Asopa And Her Hubby, Rajeev Sen Head Off For Their European Honeymoon, Share First Glimpses)In a throwback interview with the Hindustan Times, Abhishek had revealed the details of his love story, and had shared, "I've never asked who fell in love first, actually. I'll have to ask her that. But the moment we got together we knew this was it."In an interview with Famously Filmfare, Aishwarya had shared snippets on her marital life with Abhishek. She had stated, "It feels like yesterday and what's funny is that everyone else thinks so too. It's going to be 12 years in April and it's flown by, which is a great sign. I am clueless about the time that's flown by."She had also talked about the time when Abhishek had first proposed to her, and had revealed, "I remember. During the shoot of Jodha Akbar's song 'Khwaja Mere Khwaja', sitting as a bride, and I am like, omg this is surreal, all happening on-screen, off-screen, this is bizarre and Ashutosh is like you are engaged and I am like what."

    A happy marriage is all about keeping the love alive and treating your wife as your queen for the rest of your life. And Bollywood actress, Anushka Sharma and cricketer, Virat Kohli's relationship is a perfect example of it. From planning date nights to keeping karwa chauth, the duo has been making our heart flutter with their every picture. (Recommend Read: Prabhas Reacts To The Rumours Of Him House-Hunting With Alleged Muse, Anushka Shetty In Los Angeles)Virat and Anushka had a perfect start to their love story when they met each other for an ad shoot, and within seconds they felt the sparks. Even though the couple tried to keep their relationship away from the media glare, their love couldn't be kept under the wraps. And rest as we say is history!The hot couple had made headlines when they had shared their wedding pictures and for the longest time, we had been star struck. On August 21, 2019, Virat took to his Instagram handle and shared a mushy picture with Anushka from their beach vacation. We totally loved how the duo looked their best. Take a look at the picture below:In an interview with the Filmfare magazine, Anushka had talked about her marriage and had shared, "I feel so happy when people say that. If the happiest moment in your life can make others so happy, it makes me feel so blessed. We wanted to keep it genuine. We didn't want it to be adulterated and touched by anything, which would remind us that we're celebrities. We were with our parents and our siblings, who've sacrificed so much for us, our closest friends, who've supported us through our worst." (Also Read: Charu Asopa And Her Hubby, Rajeev Sen Head Off For Their European Honeymoon, Share First Glimpses)She had further talked about her wedding, and had stated, "If we'd allowed it to become public in any way, we would be reminded of our public standing. We didn't want that. We just wanted to be like two people in love. We never counted for who we were publicly when we fell in love. Our beings fell in love. We wanted to feel that purity at our wedding. That's why we kept it so close to our hearts and kept it away from anything, which would make us think about anything other than us and the people who were part of this. It was surreal."Anushka had opened up on how it feels to be married. She had said, "I'm married to my best friend. I'm married to my confidant. I'm married to someone I love so dearly just because of the human being that he is. You talk about being misunderstood in life and then you meet someone, who understands you completely. Then the world doesn't exist. So for him and me, when we're together, the world ceases to exist. We find solace in one another because of the similarities we share as people. Even when we were dating each other, it was the same thing. I feel extremely happy because he's my family."
