We've seen a lot lately about the “violent radical leftist/anarchists” disrupting the national conventions. I will not condone the political left
(or right) anymore than violence. I can understand why certain factions don't want to be associated with these individuals, but what bothers me more
is the way this paints a bad picture of radicals and anarchists. Even those who may support the dissent will say, “well yeah, but we're not really
anarchists...those are just government agents.” I am almost certain that the violent operators are government sponsored provocateurs, but I take
offense at the idea that there is something wrong with being even a non-violent anarchist or radical (or that such individuals are inherently
Here are my thoughts on anarchy. This will surely offend many of you. Some will claim that I am a shill of the N.W.O, but as a control mechanism, they
are my enemy just as much as any person or organization that wishes to impose its will on another. My only masters are my will and my freedom. Non
serviam. I will serve none. If we all followed our own will, we may enjoy a perfect world – sure, some will say, what about the rapists and the
murderers? ...well, I am driven to wonder what kind of world would drive one to that state. I know that my most violent and angry instincts come when
confronted not with natural occurrences and interactions but when an external control machine tries to impose itself on me...I hope some of you will
There are many who fear the prospect of anarchy, seeing in it a world of dog-eat-dog brutality, chaos, violence, riots and selfishness. Nothing could
be further from the truth. Aside from the rare misguided and mistaken individual, those who feel the true calling of anarchy are blessed and/or cursed
with this vocation because they see the potential – and the necessity – of rising above and moving beyond these basest of needs.
In the earliest years of humanity, we lived in a state of complete freedom. There were of course conflicts and difficulties, and while most could be
resolved easily and peacefully, it became apparent that some organization amongst groups of individuals might provide beneficial to all involved. Thus
were formed the first tribes, nations, and eventually governments. Nonetheless, there were many who still clung to their most primal instincts, both
those that remain very beneficial and those that will forever be harmful (sex and violence, respectively.) These individuals, in their lust for power,
adopted the manner and rhetoric of the enlightened organizers.
As a result of espousing successfully tried and tested ideas, these individuals became very popular and very powerful. At the same time, they had no
interest in the common good, but enjoyed the rise of their influence. This persisted for generation after generation, until the whole world was
controlled by those with a lust for power, posturing and pandering to those who strove for love and life and peace.
Humanity used the tools of government as a useful crutch for some time, but that time has long since passed. We have been debating for decades the
importance of individuality and self responsibility. It is high time we take these ideals to their logical conclusion/evolution, and move forward into
a world where every individual is responsible for their own lives and no one feels the need to impede on anyone else's experience of reality.
This is why both the right and the left are wrong, and why all governments are inherently “evil.” We are far past the point at which we should all
be able to work together peacefully and cooperatively to achieve both individual and community goals. Those who insist on government may have good
intentions (some, perhaps) but they are going about it the wrong way. Anyone who works for the government – from the president to the policeman to
the clerk filing paperwork at the DMV – has sold out to a dying machine. Maybe we can save them, but first we need to save ourselves – each and
every one of us. We need to build new and better machines, those that will make us free rather than confine others.
The concept of government, state and nation are becoming as obsolete as such archaic notions as organized religion, authoritative structures, the
nuclear family and lifelong monogamous marriage. We are moving into a brave new world where anything can and will happen at any given moment and we
cannot let ourselves be enslaved by the past.
OK, so I expect to take alot of heat for this thread. Please try to avoid the reactionary and partisan bickering. I would appreciate honest and
intelligent debate, because I know my ideas are far from perfect, though I feel I am on a path with potential.
