In Rojava, Kurds brought a new life to an archaic communal form. Equality for women became a crucial aspect of a social revolution. See “Witnessing Revolution in Rojava” by Paul Z. Simons in current issue of News & Letters (newsandletters.org).

It is a contrast to the crucible of death that Syria has become at the hands of old counter-revolutionary nationalisms and imperialisms, the most vile of which is the Islamic State. All state players are united in trying to erase the revolutionary humanist challenge to Assad awoken by Arab Spring.

Can Rojava’s revolution afford to stop at Bookchin’s democratic confederalism, adapted by Ocalan as the opposite to the vanguardism of Marxist-Leninism? What about the revolutiona’s internal contradictions, for example, Kurd’s participation in Putin’s blitzkrieg against human forces fighting Assad in Syria? What do we need to finally break the cycle of revolutions that transfrom into their opposite?
