This brief essay places Bob Black’s idea of anarchism firmly in a Ludic rather than workerist tradition, more in common with Wilde than Wobblies. This view places Black – seen here at odds with both Capitalism and Communism – as a frontrunner in Post-Left anarchism, separating from the older, worker and working-class orientation of the red-and-black, but similarly steering clear of the trap of post-modern capitulation to Capitalism. It is Marxists and Marxism he attacks with this sly but exciting satire and his trademark word play, a brief but hilarious assault on the last agents of the Old Left.
