Author’s Abstract

This article argues that radical theory in general, and post-anarchism
specifically has spent so much effort deconstructing and analyzing
power that it has largely overlooked the important task of examining
the constructive and prefigurative dimensions of the political alternatives
coming to the fore. Drawing on the post-anarchist thought of
Deleuze, Guattari, and the Zapatistas this article offers the beginnings
of a corrective to this trend by outlining three strategic contributions
located in their political theory and practice: (1) a multi-centered
strategy of political diagnosis, (2) a prefigurative strategy of political
transformation, and (3) a participatory strategy of organizing institutions.
