Although some of the formulations are confusing, this piece seems to be
rejecting the "don't take state power" line, and argues for linking up
local, national and transnational efforts through democratic assemblies as
a way of taking, or at least pushing aside, the State.

And his notion of "diagonal" organizing might prove helpful in overcoming
the horizontalist fetish.

Note also his belief that the level of anger and potential for mobilization
in Europe, especially the southern tier, is still high (more on that later).
