If there where no Government, no Police, no Taxes, we would have Anarchy! You’d see murders and atrocious acts like back in Stone(d)Age!
Some Random Idiot, You’ve all heard them…
Anarchy, in what in German we call the “Urgedanke” (original thought), has nothing to do with chaos and destruction, murders and atrocious acts, it is on the contrary a well-organized society, where each individual has his own responsibility and authority.
In recent centuries, anarchism has been the scene of terrorist bombings, and in the last decade, bored people, mostly from the rich upper classes and some other stoned idiots, have taken advantage of anarchy as a means for a Saturday night party, or just to let off some steam on a manifestation.
Anarchism, in truth, is a very old political and social idea, putting the individual being in control – and as such, should be brought closer to the society and demystified.
It is (by accident) the probably oldest social form of human society, and has been more and more demonized by the emerging ruling classes, but has in fact brought Humanity thru millennia of struggle.
Anarchy is what happens when catastrophes hit a country, and the Governments are out of service. Then, neighboring is suddenly a thing. This, is anarchy.
Anarchy is what happens in a family, where everyone has a role, well defined, and thou no one has a total power over any one else.
Anarchy is what happens when we want the same piece of meat, and either share, or don’t.
Yes, anarchy can mean brutal, natural struggle where the stronger may – in some cases – eradicate the weaker.
Let me remind you that no law ever made by humans has ever successfully stopped strong killing weak.
Our modern human rules may be successful in punishing after any prohibited act is done – it however cannot avoid the act to happen. The absence of such written rule hence would have no impact at all.
Anarchy means the absence of domination, not the absence of social order, for there is another adequate expression: Anomie.
Absence of domination (Anarchy) does not mean that there is no order (Anomie), that no law enforces its power, and so on.
It simply means, no one can permanently misuse power to produce obedience to commands from others and justify this with a socially accepted rule.
An anarchistic system respects laws that can not be broken by anything or anyone, because they are given by the circumstances, because they are laws, not rules.
These laws, do not need a ruling class to enforce them – because they are self-appealing and performing by their nature.
Any rule, that needs a clarification, a guardian and a statement is not a law. A law does not need any of this. An Anarchy, is the only political and social philosophy that takes this in account, and respects those laws, reads them, and formulates (unwritten) rules that allow the society to prosper within.
That’s right. Anarchy does not need a law book to avoid mass murder. Law books don’t avoid mass murder. Circumstances do.
Any act, aimed to break a real, anarchistic law is not possible per definition.
A law cannot be broken. A rule can be broken.
