What is Anarchism

Anarchy dose not mean civil disobedience or civil unrest although both these things are sometimes necessary to achieve anarchy.Most anarchist have adopted the non aggression principle this states that an anarchist must not initiate violence  and that violence or is only justified in direct self defence. This is not a “rule” but a common recognition of a moral principle that comes naturally to anybody who has adopted the principle of self ownership and ultimate responsibility for there actions. Anarchy is not chaos or disorder in fact quite the opposite. Anarchy is the highest form of order, it is order through cooperation between self aware sovereign individuals that have made the decision to accept full personal responsibility for there action’s and choose to work together for a common goal

Anarchism questions authority and demands the dismantling of that authority if that authority can not justify its existence

Anarchism is faith in the human race to be able and willing to take care of its own affairs without the need for coercion, manipulation, exploitation, and blatant forced control.

Anarchism only basis for any just society .. the peaceful voluntary  co-operation of group’s of individuals living and working together for the greater good

Voluntary cooperation is the  meaning of anarchism

Anarchism is freedom

we are being led up the garden path my friends

what I have here are some facts… not a made up story or a distortion of the truth just facts I implore you to make up your own mind about the origins of our culture

so to begin .. Edward Bernay’s was the nephew of Sigmund Freud he lived at the start of last century he was a prominent figure in the moulding of the propaganda machine used to control us today. He was skilled in manipulating the psychological processes that effect peoples behaviour. He was referred to in his obituary as “the father of public relations” it was his belief that the masses are incapable of making decisions on there own and should be manipulated into there beliefs His view was that the general public were an “irrational collective” a lot of his work drew from the work of Gustav Le Bon’s theories  on crowd psychology

“THE conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country”

-Edward Bernays

In the 1928 he was hired by American Tobacco to devise a propaganda campaign to open the tobacco market up to the female half of the market, until then tobacco sales were restricted predominantly to men and smoking in woman was widely regarded as unacceptable even being associated with prostitution. He hired a group of young attractive models to march in the New York City parade and on informing the press that a group of “women’s rights” activists were marching devised the headline’s “Torches of Freedom” “Group of Girls Puff at Cigarettes as a Gesture of ‘Freedom‘” it was a success… and it was a completely manufactured event that was reported to the public as a genuine news story.

It was the Industrial Revolution that allowed Bernay’s to promote the idea that a consumer society must be created in order to create a balance between production and consumption and (conveniently) line the pockets of the producers. Advertisements  began to use psychology to convince you to by there products. The general public were introduced to the idea that purchases could be made for pleasure rather than necessity or a need for survival.

According to the book Tavistock by John Coleman  in witch he proves that Bernay’s along with Walter Lipman (a man with whom he shared much of his ideology with)was intrinsically tied to the Tavistock Institute. For anybody unaware, the Tavistock Institute of Human Relations is a “charity” organization concerned with “group behaviour” and “organisational behaviour” or in other words social control. It has been instrumental in the manufacture of consent for  war’s/invasions by America and Britain.

Tavistock rose directly from Wellington House the propaganda organization that was used to alter public opinion and position the public as willing participants in the first world war. This was achieved by characterising those how opposed the war as “isolationists” using shame and fear of standing out from the crowd to mould public opinion.

Terms like “regime change” witch actual means a military take over and “collateral damage” witch means the death of civilians including woman and children were introduced by Tavistock to soften of the reality’s of war it is using method’s like this that Tavistock are able to form public opinion

Tavistock still operate today this is not just something that used to happen… this is what is happening now! ..We are being led up the garden path my friends

On Anarchy and the Nature of Authority

Proletarians of the world, look into the depths of your own beings, seek out the truth and realise it yourselves: you will find it nowhere else”

-Peter Arshinov The History of the Makhnovist Movement

The Anarchist Question

The problem that confronts us today . . . is how to be one’s self and yet in oneness with others, to feel deeply with all human beings and still retain one’s own characteristic qualities.”

-Emma Goldman(anarchist writer- this is teremed “the anarchist question”)

In other words, how can we create a society in which the potential for each individual is realised but not at the expense of others? In order to achieve this, anarchists envision a society in which, instead of being controlled “from the top down” through hierarchical structures of centralised power, the affairs of humanity will,to quote Benjamin Tucker, “be managed by individuals or voluntary associations.”

Quated from “an anarchist faq”

http://anarchism.pageabode.com/afaq/index.html

My understanding of and commitment to anarchism is a direct result of the same process that lead me to come to the conclusion that there is only one being in existence. That process was and still is one of uncovering what is real by striping away what is illusory

I have not always been an anarchist nor have I always believed that there is only one being in existence and arriving at both these conclusions was not what I set out to do five years ago when I began this journey. Arriving at them was something that happened to me when I began, through a series of events to question what was real. And it was this questioning that brought me to the conclusions that I am left with today those conclusions are….1. that other/separation is not real and there always has and always will be only One Being in existence…. And 2. that government and authority are not real and there can only be has been and will only ever be Anarchy

So to first of all say a bit about Anarchism …Anarchism in itself is not a complete social theory it is the bases on which we can build a social theory. Anarchism branches of into many different theories and directions all prefixed with the word anarcho for example anarcho syndicalism, anarcho Communism and many other anarcho’s. There are many theories and many arguments for or against all of them. I won’t be going into any of those arguments here. Instead I will talk about what is at the root of all these theories and is the foundation of any anarchist theory. It is that which the word anarchy means in itself. Anarchy on its own is not enough to form a social structure it is a premise from which to start and is intended to be built on. All “anarcho’s”have one fundamental and undeniable truth from which they are all built on and that is anarchy and that is what I am going to talk about

Anarchy is undoubtedly the most misunderstood and misused term. It is widely misrepresented to mean chaos and disorder. And for many people who call themselves “anarchists” it might well mean that. But that is not what I mean when I use the word anarchy nor is it the true meaning of the word.

An-archy” …. “An” meaning (“Lack off” or “without”) and archy” meaning (“a ruler” or “authority”) so “without a ruler,” or “without authority,”

That is… without “a ruler” not without rules. Anarchists (true anarchists) do not believe in a world without rules. Rules (rules in the sense of defining an order) are part of a social structure and they help to maintain an order but if and only if(and this is the most important premise which anarchist believe)

Those rules can be only be justifiable, moral and effective in a sustainable way if they are entered into freely.

If they are not entered into freely and are forced on others by “a ruler” or “authority” then by definition there is oppression and the rules then without exception become very damaging to the individual’s on the subservient end of the resultant authoritarian relationship and the order that results is an imposed fixed order which will always lead to suffering and injustice ..

It is also vital to understand what I mean when I say “authority”. There is the authority that is given to someone that displays an aptitude for or has knowledge, skills or experience in a particular area this is an authority which is agreed to by both sides of a relationship and is engendered through a mutual respect… Anarchists would have no problem with this type of authority this is not the type of authority I am referring to here and in fact it can be said that this type of relationship is not one of authority at all but one which delegates responsibility due to a imbalance in knowledge or skill thereby creating for some people a level of dependency specific to a particular person with superior skills in particular area of knowledge. These types of relationships occur naturally in complex social beings and are in no way authoritarian provided they satisfy three basic conditions 1. The relationship has consennt from both sides 2. Both sides remain autonomus within the relationship 3. The relationship can be terminated by either side at any time . (Theses conditions come naturally to most relationships anyway which is why anarchist maintain that the following types of “authoritarian” relationships are un-natural and must be questiond)

Then there is the type of authority that is assumed by one party because of their status or position. This type of authority is imposed by one side because of nothing other than that person’s position as an authority. This type of authority is not one that requires an agreement from both sides it is an authority which one assumes over another whether that other agrees to it or not, it is imposed or enforced by one side upon the other resulting in the oppression of that subserviant side… This is an oppressive authority.. and I am talking about this type of authority. This type of authority is “authority by force” and the reason it is allowed to exist is because we as human beings have formed a system of beliefs that allow it and in fact it is our belief in it which gives it its very existence

I am talking about the use of authority by force as a means of control. This is what I mean by authority.

Anarchy……is the absence of this authority. …Anarchy does not ask that that authority be replaced by something else it only asks that it be removed

Anarchy is letting go of the control that that authority imposes and allowing a natural order to emerge. That order the “real order” does not come from human beings involved in hierarchical relationships or delegating who has the right to rule. It does not come from imposition of force by an individual or a group of people. This is the distinction that anarchists make. “a ruler” is someone who imposes his will on others. Whereas true anarchists believe that rules are not fixed, but are agreement’s and are something that should be allowed to emerge and should, once they show themselves be entered into freely and the agreements therefore reflect the natural order and like the natural order the agreements are never fixed but always open to change. .In my personal opinion the overwhelming majority of people will recognise and respect rules or agreements that come about in that manner and are entered into freely because people are essentially good and this is what anarchy represents for me. It is the trust in humanity to find its natural order and be able to organise its affairs in a compassionate and respectful way without the need for forced control and authority.

Almost all of the instances of injustice in the world today have their root in systems of belief which stem from one core belief, that is the belief in the requirement of authority by force. Flip through the pages of any history book and you will see that most of the injustice in the world was not the result of people disobeying an authority but it was the result of people believing in and enforcing an authority on others. The evils that have been committed in spite of authority are trivial compared to the evils that have been committed in the name of authority

Forced authority is not a noble idea that sometimes goes wrong. It is not a basically valid concept that is sometimes corrupted. It is from top to bottom a horribly destructive form of oppression which results in untold suffering. The belief in authority often gives rise to people doing things they would otherwise never consider because it removes personal responsibility.(refer to the Millgram experiments) It removes all compassion and ability to use one’s own moral judgement. Forced authority as a belief is a completely irrational concept which has no place in a just society.

Anarchy means the removal of authority by force and more importantly the removal of the belief that force is necessary. So when we as individuals let go of our belief in the need for an authority to control us by force then we as a society remove the permission to be ruled by force then what we are left with is anarchy. Anarchy is not something that has to be imposed because it is already there waiting to be revealed. Every time you meet a friend in the street that meeting involves people voluntarily co-operating and is anarchist in nature, every time you sit down for a meal with your loved ones that is anarchist in nature, social gatherings are anarchist, meeting a friend for lunch is anarchy, meditating in a group is anarchy. Any interaction that occurs without forced control or hierarchical relation is anarchy. Anarchy is happening now all around you and is the natural state of humanity. Anarchy is what is left when you remove the embellishment of forced and authoritative control.

Since government is by many magnitudes the biggest representation and wielder of authority by force and it has at its core a complete dependence on a need to force compliance through the threat of violence so it is the case that addressing the nature of government and our “belief” in it is unavoidable when addressing anarchy and the nature of authority.

And since anarchy is in direct opposition to the hierarchical systems of government and a government is generally deemed to be necessary to “maintain order” ..it is little wonder that the tendency is to assume that should that government be removed then the order would go with it.

The absence of government is not the absence of order. People falsely assume that many of the useful and legitimate things that benefit society require a government but people can organise for mutual defence (should it be necessary) , people can work together to achieve common goals, people can find ways to co-operate and get along peacefully and come up with agreements and plans that would better allow human beings to exist and thrive in a mutually beneficial and non-violent way all of this is entirely possible without a government and the forced authority that it brings. The only thing that government bring is the threat of force and violence with our permission. The overwhelming majority of people would, can and do chose to enter into mutually beneficial agreements without the need for force and the vast majority of problems only arise because we are operating under the false assumption that force is necessary

No man has the right to rule over another man by force this is a basic fundamental natural law … one of the universal natural laws that like anarchy exists in the very core of our being, despite the man made embellishments that cover them up. It is the law of “free choice and invitation” meaning you can only ever enter into something of your own free choice and you can only ever invite others to join you in those choices. Ask in yourself if this true your heart will tell you. If we do not have the right to forcibly rule over our fellow man then we certainly cannot delegate that right to someone else therefore government and authority have no legitimate existence. People think it is this way because it has to be, because we don’t have a choice, we do have a choice, we can let go of our beliefs and step into the unknown, or we can keep things the same. The one constant in this life is change and one thing that is stagnant right now is our beliefs and assumptions about the nature of authority. Anarchy in itself does not have any of the answers to the problems that face human beings on this planet but in my opinion it is absolutely essential that it is recognised as the only foundation on which we can build

Anarchy does not mean chaos or disorder in fact anarchy in its truest sense represents the highest form of order, order which is not imposed but is allowed to arise through free associations and voluntary co-operation with self aware individuals who understand their relationships to other people and have agreed to take full personal responsibility for their actions. Anarchy is being allowed and allowing an order to show itself through you. Anarchy is accepting there is an order and we cannot control it. If you love something you allow it to be exactly what it is without trying to control it or change it, you accept its apparent imperfections and don’t try to change them….. that is anarchy. Anarchy is the field beyond right and wrong, Love allows things to be as they are. Anarchy is love

Peace Love Anarchy

The transition should begin strait away

In the 17 hundreds when Adam Smith published The Wealth Of Nations things were very different. We did not have the threat of scarcity of resources or the realization that our very survival could be under threat from over consumption.  We did not have the ability to effectively organize the distribution of resources, so the economic system that was emerging and the analysis and the ideas proposed by Adam Smith would have seemed reasonable and at the time and probably were.. The Wealth Of Nations is only concerned with the mechanics of the movement of money based on the assumption that the free market is required to manage our distribution of resources..

Well a quick look at any modern computer programming algorithm or the distribution structure of a major supermarket chain will tell you we have the organizational intelligence to distribute our resources fairly and (assuming most of us still have our humanity intact)..provide for every member of the human family while still sustaining and nurturing the planet. That we haven’t begun this process already speaks volumes about who is really in control. The transition to a system of distribution that achieves these goals will be long and difficult but it is absolutely necessary and it should begin strait away

Advertising

Bombarding you yet subtlety manipulating you at the same time its all around us

it is part of our culture and its based on deceit and trickery, always on the edge of morality its boundaries have been slowly expanded

before the onset of the consumer culture in the 20/30s advertising main purpose was imparting information about the product. That all changed with the introduction of TV advertising space and the onset of mass production, with witch came the need to create demand for the products

Advertising facilitates the rampant consumerism that is destroying our society it is part of the self perpetuating machine that is capitalism, Capitalism is consuming our society. Is there a grand kabbala of masons in control of our destiny.Well there is certainly grand kabbal’s of masons and who knows what other unknown secretive gatherings of wealthy people but despite there wish to be so.. NONE of them are in control.. Of course there are very powerful groups of billionaires that are feeding the machine and manipulating the scenery and outcomes as best they can…

Do they come together to conspire and try to expand and maintain there power and control?…

Of course they do!

But they are no more than men and woman like you or me

They don’t have control!

At best they improvise and make the best of whatever comes up next, we still have control over our own destiny, we can begin to make changes that will begin the process of de-constructing the whole system right now!. We are witnessing the battle being “thought” as more people wake up to techniques used by the corporations, the corporation have to employ ever stronger tactics to keep you in your obedient consumerist mind set. There are changes happening in the world , what you do about it is up to you

Its All An Elaborate Hoax!!!

Government institutions use the environment, drug problems, public safety,  to create laws to gain advantage for the company’s that lobby for exemption’s and to collect money in fines ….its all an elaborate hoax

reasons not to vote

1. Because it is enforcing your views on the rest of society with the threat of violence
2. Because your choice is EXTREMLY! limited
3. Because it is always a well financed candidate that wins regardless of policy’s
4. Because it reinforces the idea that we cannot live peacefully together without forced control
5. Because elected government will force you to comply with there wishes and it dose not logically follow that if the majority believes it then it must be right for me (you are better of not playing the game)

6. Because there is no “vote for freedom”

7. Because in the grand scale of things if we are honest.. your vote doesn’t matter

8. Because all political party’s are controlled through funding and lobbying and funny handshakes and “old school ties” and are managed by miss-led corporate puppets that have no concept of humanity
