The autonomy in autonomous Marxism does not have to be confusing, it does not have to be the revolution. The autonomy in autonomous Marxism doesn't even require Marx. The autonomy in autonomous Marxism, for me anyway, really and truly refers to the ability of the working people, the poor, the exploited, the multitude to act without, even within, capital, even within Empire. The poor can/do/must organize themselves. The multitude are always resisting capital and making communism without even the need of a bunch of "advanced" socialist intellectuals explaining, teaching, leading, ordering, or marching in front.
No Party need apply.
The poor, the multitude demonstrate every single day, here or there, an extraordinary ability to resist, survive, and create the new. Most of the advanced, call them Marxists, communists, anarchists, the socialist intelligentsia, or whomever or whatever, miss the whole thing as they are too busy figuring things out, arguing with each other, and doing what vanguards do...vanguarding.
What you will read below is (not) surprisingly just the work of the multitude and the precarious themselves doing what they have always done...with little fanfare, without spending hours studying, without the "help" of others from classes other than their own.
I love it.
Thank you to Poor Magazine for opening the door and allowing me to look in.
