Hi Adam,

this contribution today, contains a critique of your assumed position, by
Brian Holmes,

see http://blog.p2pfoundation.net/construction-or-resistance/2009/11/27

> *However at the same time I think that critical and resistant practice is
essential these days, and it also appears necessary in order to avoid a very
strange kind of utopianism which says that in fact, everything is fine, we
are on our way to a new society. I would say this is a form of autonomist
quietism! In my opinion Adam Arvidsson is today one of the chief
representatives of this tendency. I have read his work and I criticized it,
not superficially I think, in the introduction to my new book, in a text
called “Recapturing Subversion.”

I wonder if you could react to this, not necessarlity directly, but by
pointing out your theory and assumptions of change,
