Nihilist communism

Nihilist communism[1][2][3][4][5] is a collection of anti-authoritarian, anti-political, anti-organizational communist perspectives[6] cardinally developed by two anglophone authors using the pen names Frère[7][8] and Le Garçon.[9] Since 2003,[10] they have written collaboratively as Monsieur Dupont.[11][12][13]

Nihilist communism aims to level "a critique of optimism in the far left".[2] Rather than attempting to establish new and popular sets of positions, it is counterpoised against, among many other things, the "religious" dogma of the Marxist and anarchist[14] milieus. It attempts to disencumber itself of its content in order to explore new concepts and ideas.
