"Dogmatic Marxists and Dogmatic Anarchists should go to Hell" The Working Class Today by David Harvey

David Harvey talks about how to conceive of and organize the working class in contemporary circumstances. Different from its classical, factory-based, guise, the working class today is fragmented and scattered throughout the urban setting. '

 In this context, Harvey emphasizes the importance of thinking up new territorial strategies for class struggle – a terrain more explored by the anarchist tradition than the classical Marxist one.

He then, paraphrasing Murray Bookchin, insists that the future of the left depends crucially on our capacity for putting together the best of Marxism with the best of anarchism.
