Abstract [en]

In this commentary, I offer, from an anarchist–geographic perspective, a constructive critique of certainelements of Simon Springer’s article. I welcome his article for bringing to light some of the more politicallyproblematic elements of (orthodox) Marxist thought. Springer raises important points about the practicalitiesof social change, but he does so in a rather binaristic manner. Accordingly, I address several elementsof Springer’s characterization of both anarchism and Marxism – especially on political organization andpraxis – in order to nuance some of his arguments and draw out broader lessons for radical geographicalscholarship and the future of the radical/revolutionary left in general.
