BONUS EPISODE: Theses on the Council Concept

This essay from the New Institute for Social Research explores the concept of the council, originating out of the “council communist” tendency, which is closely related to communisation. A lot of this essay is given over to a form of “social fiction,” wherein the author tries to imagine how the council, as a relational process, would be the form of complex social organisation in a post-revolutionary future. We enter into the topic via the concept of the “mega-machine,” taken from the Deleuze and Guattari’s book “Anti-Oedipus.” And we spend some time ourselves imagining how a post-revolutionary communist utopia might appear.
