Abstract

This paper reflects on the Greek revolt and considers it as a result of the crisis of capital and at the same time, of our negation of capital and its state. The crisis of capital is produced by our struggles and our refusal to identify ourselves with neoliberal norms and values. Considering this process dialectically, the crisis of capital intensifies our struggles and reproduces the crisis of identification with capitalist bearings. The paper argues that the Greek unrest was a struggle against capital and its state, a struggle for humanity and dignity. It concludes that this struggle creates new forms of self-organization, promotes the project of social autonomy and allows us to have a militant optimism.
