To recommend that the working class “assume the dialectical project of a creative negation” and take “the risk of political alienation in order to make politics superfluous” is not part of an anarchist project. For Bakunin, the only creative negation is the destruction of the state and its replacement by the class structures of the proletariat. To engage - voluntarily moreover - in a process of self-alienation would not seem to Bakunin the best way to achieve self-liberation.
