Communitarian Anarchism

By Firestorm Coop

A virtual event featuring John P. Clark, in discussion with artists Liz Lessner and Mat Keel, about the updated edition of his book The Impossible Community: Realizing Communitarian Anarchism and their work with the project Yes We Cannibal and La Terre Institute for Community and Ecology.

In this stunningly original work, John P. Clark skillfully argues that a free and just social order requires a radical transformation of the modes of domination exercised through social ideology, the social imaginary, the social ethos, and social institutional structures. Ambitious in scope and compelling in its strength and imagination, The Impossible Community offers readers an accessible theoretical framework along with concrete case studies to show how contemporary anarchist practice continues a long tradition of successfully synthesizing personal and communal liberation. This provocatively innovative work will appeal not only to students of anarchism and political theory but also to activists and anyone interested in making the world a better place.
