Anti-Authoritarianism and Resisting Illegitimate Authority, Talk by author Bruce E. Levine

Bruce E. Levine, a practicing clinical psychologist, writes and speaks widely on how society, culture, politics and psychology intersect. His latest book is Resisting Illegitimate Authority: A Thinking Person’s Guide to Being an Anti-Authoritarian-Strategies, Tools, and Models (2018).

In this fifty minute talk, Dr. Levine will define authoritarianism and anti-authoritarianism, and he will discuss definition controversies. Next, he will discuss his path to writing Resisting Illegitimate Authority, including how he became an activist in the mental health treatment reform movement and began focusing on authoritarianism and anti-authoritarianism in the larger society. Dr. Levine will then discuss Resisting Illegitimate Authority, which is a book about anti-authoritarians and also for them. Much of the book is devoted to profiling a diverse group of U.S. anti-authoritarians, all of whom having something to teach about anti-authoritarian triumph and tragedy, and Dr. Levine will discuss some of these profiles and offer ideas for anti-authoritarians struggling to survive and have a good life. Following the talk, Dr. Levine will take questions and comments

Talk Description:

After the past three years of a political climate in turmoil, next year we hope to correct the course. While there are many suggestions as to what that course is, the consensus always excludes what to do about the far right that dominates today’s climate. How do we change that, how have we fought them in the past and how do we fight them in the future and most importantly, who are we fighting? This will be a discussion about what we have seen and what to expect as we go forward.

College of the Redwoods 7351 Tompkins Hill Rd. Eureka, CA 95501, Room AJ 108

Talk Description: Debbie Bookchin, recently returned from the autonomous Kurdish-led region known as Rojava, will talk about the history of Rojava, why it is critical to defend this feminist, ecological, democratic project from the ongoing onslaught by Turkey and its jihadi allies and the Syrian regime. Discuss how ideas of social ecology have influenced the Kurdish freedom movement  and why Rojava project is relevant today!

Debbie Bookchin is a long time journalist and author who has won awards for her news feature and investigative reporting. She has reported and written for a number of publications including The New York Times, The Atlantic, the New York Review of Books, and The Nation. She served for three years as Bernie Sanders’ press secretary when he was first elected to Congress from Vermont. She is the daughter of two activist parents. Her father is the philosopher and social theorist Murray Bookchin who is credited with originating the critical theory known as social ecology which had a major impact on the New Left of the 1960s, the Alter-Globalization movement, and more recently the Kurdish autonomy movement with its anti-capitalist, reconstructive, ecological and communalist vision of social organization. Her mother, Beatrice Bookchin, worked alongside her father for more than 50 years contributing to the development of his ideas and running twice in Burlington City Council elections on a radical, municipalist platform that proposed grassroots democracy, ecological stewardship and a moral economy as part of a project to develop a countervailing power to that of the nation-state. Many of the ideas that have animated the Kurdish autonomy movement, can be found in Bookchin’s latest book of essays: The Next Revolution Popular Assemblies and the Promise of Direct Democracy, which Debbie coedited.
