"Even when labor is subjugated by capital it always necessarily maintains its own autonomy, and this ever more clearly true today with respect to the new immaterial, cooperative and collaborative forms of labor."

Autonomism, also known as Autonomous Marxism, is an anti-authoritarian form of Marxism. It wants the working class to force changes without the state, trade unions, or political parties.


Autonomism is a political movement that emerged in the 1960s and 1970s in Western Europe, particularly in Italy and Germany. It is characterized by its emphasis on individual autonomy, direct democracy, and grassroots organization, and its rejection of traditional forms of political representation.

The roots of autonomism can be traced back to the student and worker protests of the 1960s, which challenged the traditional structures of power and authority in society. In Italy, the movement was heavily influenced by the writings of Antonio Negri, a Marxist philosopher and political activist who argued for the importance of workers' self-management and the rejection of bureaucratic forms of organization.

In the 1970s, autonomism became more organized and militant, with the emergence of groups such as the Red Brigades in Italy and the Red Army Faction in Germany. These groups engaged in armed struggle against the state and capitalist institutions, and advocated for the creation of autonomous zones in which individuals and communities could organize themselves according to their own needs and desires.

Despite its radicalism and militancy, autonomism has had a lasting impact on leftist politics, particularly in Europe. Its emphasis on grassroots organization and direct democracy has inspired a range of social movements, from the anti-globalization movement of the 1990s to the Occupy movement of the 2010s. Its rejection of traditional forms of political representation has also influenced the rise of alternative forms of governance, such as participatory democracy and citizen assemblies.

  • Anarcho-Syndicalism - Based on the workers' revolution and anti-authoritarianism, but labor is too organized. Unions are no longer a good force in fighting capitalism.
  • Insurrectionary Anarchism - That's a bit too far.
  • Platformism - You claim to be libertarian, yet you are obsessed with organization.
