The House Always Wins: The State and Autonomism

Autonomism, as a strategy, is growing in popularity during this current moment of uprising. While an autonomist strategy can provide some important victories, it can never bring about true liberation because it misunderstands the nature of the state. We can neither reform the state nor work around it, so we must overthrow it.
