Take now or stay the same..

For all our anger and posturing we are politicised chiefly because we care about people and are appalled by the needless suffering created by a privileged minority. ALL hierarchical political structures – no matter how liberal they may claim to be – rely on division, privilege, poverty and fear to survive.  The poor and powerless exist BECAUSE the privileged and powerful exist. Some people claim that this is simply ‘human nature’, but if this were the case the powerful wouldn’t need billy-clubs (be they sticks, swords or  nuclear armaments) and prisons (be they walls of stone or mind forg’d manacles) to enforce their will upon the rest of us.

If there were no anarchists, the state would have had to invent them. We know that on several occasions it has done just that. We need anarchists unencumbered by anarchism. Then, and only then, we can begin to get serious about fomenting anarchy.
