The Free, Irish anarchist novel, out now for free..

category dublin | anti-capitalism | press release author Monday April 30, 2012 20:34author by M Gilliland Report this post to the editors

One lonely abused schoolgirl 'occupies' herself.. and sets off an explosive social and economic Revolution..

Read it online now at thefreeonline.wordpress.com. (or free download for all apps)
The original of The Free was set in a fictional Ireland, and even in this huge updated 4th edition you can recognize streets, and Dublin banter.
The thriller story is more topical than ever, set in an anarchist/feminist social revolution which triumphs due to the collapse of Capitalism caused by climate chaos.
Now it's a world book, with 2035 'Friends on Farsebook', but the first chapters could be the backstreets of Dublin.

blurb
The State is going bottoms up, the Climate is going crazy,
......we’re living the collapse of capitalism, blow by blow,
...............................with a rainbow.
..............Linda changes her name to Maxie
.....She and her new friends get free of their traumas,
..and get into dealing death blows, to a skinhead gang,
....a bankrupt school and the testerical special police.
.........Next thing they flee to Ragwort CoOp Pool,
........ in a big safe occupied working class area.
.......We play the adventure live through their eyes,
..laughing and lamenting... inventing social revolution.

..The PIF soldiers eventually arrive, to restore capitalist chaos,
............Macker and Maxie are missing, the hunt begins,
....while the spaced out invaders get subverted, corrupted,
..............................swallowed and digested.
Our odd family puzzles with the pieces.. finding a fun lifestyle,
......a coppice farm, and bright ideas for saving The Planet,
but keep your hankies handy, folks.. click on your giant wings,
........................... for the fantastic FLYING finale!

So whats your alternative I hear McGuffin ask ?


Anarchists are often presented as being combative and anti-social, while their doctrine is co-operation and sociability. Peter Kropotkin explained the split between Anarchism and Marxism of the 1870′s in terms of cultural differences between Northern Europe and Southern Europe. France, Italy and Spain were the strongest centres of Anarchism while Marxist intellectuals were strongest in England, Holland and Germany. Ireland would identify more strongly with southern Europe for several reasons one of them being a sense of passion from the heart or E.Q rather than I.Q.


The Anarchist-Marxist split runs along the lines of Anarchism essentially being the concept of most people naturally wanting to be good to others when the incentives in the current system, that encourages people to be arseholes are removed, then tradition, custom and the natural desire to be good to family, friends and neighbours will regulate society. Marxism on the other hand believes, people need to be controlled by a dictatorship of the proletariat, without which Marxists cannot visualize a society functioning or maintaining cohesion.


Anarchists could perhaps do things smarter by attraction rather than promotion. Anarchism is mostly seen in terms of smashing the state, class warfare, propaganda of deed or as Bakunin said, “The passion for destruction is a creative passion.” However this is at odds with our greatest strength, which is our community focus, instead of smashing the state, perhaps we could consider building stronger communities, which no longer need the state and that we do propaganda of deed by actually building these communities?
