Definition of Anarchy.
Vic Biorseth, Saturday, February 04, 2012
Definition of Anarchy: Opposition to State Authority in favor of Voluntary Associations, i.e., Gangs. Anarchy is a supposed Political Philosophy that holds the state, and any other organized authority, to be immoral. Government, or any other entity that holds the power to use force against citizens is opposed. Under its own definition, anarchists recognize no rule of law. Unlike Communism, which calls for a period of training called by Marx the Dictatorship of the Proletariat, or Socialism, during which mankind is trained and perfected for the state of statelessness, anarchists seek to move directly into that state, right now.
By its own definition, anarchy would be a government-less, authority-less, co-equal, supposedly voluntary society of sorts in which everything is held in common and everybody works for the community; a total collective. The definition of anarchy insists on an absence of force and an absence of authority.
How would it work? How could all people be expected to cooperate with the collective, share in work, responsibilities, property and so forth? Anarchists say that people would need to be educated in life in anarchy and then everything would be fine. But, who is to do this education, and by what authority would they teach it? How many generations could any collective operating by the definition of anarchy last?
The shared property and shared income – where is it to come from? How is it distributed? Who does the distribution, and by what authority? What happens when all the wealth that the anarchist collective starts out with is all used up?
By the very definition of anarchy, anarchy is a completely disorganized organization, which is, of course, an impossibility.
Modern public (government) education in America is infected with Communist-Anarchist-Revolutionary propaganda. An important goal of public education is to prepare students to be future revolutionaries to topple the existing system. To that end, it teaches children to oppose Authority and challenge it everywhere. The type of student the system hopes to produce is this:
The revolutionary is the man who has emancipated himself from ties of blood and soil, from his mother and his father, from special loyalties to state, class, race, party, or religion. --Eric Fromm and Abraham Maslow.That is a pretty good definition of an anarchist. It is also a pretty good definition of a potentially dangerous and violent sociopath. There is nothing left for him to be alienated against. But, this is what public school teachers are taught to teach; this is the product they are supposed to produce.
When I first looked at Communism, I thought nothing could possibly be more stupid. I was wrong. Anarchy is so stupid it makes my feet hurt.
