This essay critiques classical anarchism using Nietzsche’s concept of ‘ressentiment’ and Michel Foucault’s ideas on power. While Newman caricatures ’classical anarchism’ in his haste to define his own ‘post-anarchism’, and tends to favour individual identity over collective revolutionary action, he does make important points about the need for anarchism to be more than just a reaction to the state, and the fact that “we come from the same world as power, not from a ’natural’ world removed from it”.
