What Are We Fighting For?

I have contributed an essay to this collection, What We Are Fighting For, published by Pluto Press.  It follows from last year's conference at the ICA, which sought to deal with some of the political, strategic dilemmas posed by Occupy.  It features Peter Hallward, David Graeber, John Holloway, Nina Power, Mark Fisher, Zillah Eisenstein, Dan Hind, Owen Jones, Hillary Wainwright and other excellent contributors.  It also features, as I just mentioned, me.  I'm in there.  Buy it.  Buy it or you're not my friend any more.*  

*(See, this is what happens when you become a member of the petty bourgeois intelligentsia - non-stop hawking of your own wares, all relations subordinated to the cash nexus, all sentimental bonds drowned in the icy waters of egoistic calculation.  No, but seriously.)
