The present book brings together a series of interventions concerning pressing political, ideological and organizational issues of the contemporary situation, edited by Agon Hamza and Frank Ruda. These texts were written in a very specific political conjuncture: some during the time when Álvaro García Linera was serving as a vice-president of Bolivia, others in the period after the coup d’état of November 2019. The chapters in this book are dealing with social movements and different forms of political and subjective autonomy in Bolivia; with democracy and its function in late capitalism; with the discrepancy between national and capitalist spaces; with the Russian October Revolution as an event, and its resonances in other parts of the world; with the concept and function of the state; and, finally, with the idea of communism in its relation to necessity and contingency. At the end, the book presents a long and detailed conversation between Linera and Hamza and Ruda, as well as an afterword written by Slavoj Žižek.
