Punk Politics #9

This one’s for the anarchists. So to define real quick. Anarchism is a complete absence of centralized government. So there would be no cops, no borders, no nation, no military or politicians from local municipalities all the up to the president. Now, I like this idea. Why then, are there so many who claim anarchism holding hands with socialists and communists or feeling the Bern. All of these believe in a strong central government which is clearly the opposite of anarchism. And if you’re an anarchist and helping build a stronger state then you are commiting suicide because somewhere down the line your beliefs will run afoul of the state apparatus. Sure, on a personal level you may have friends who march at protests with you that veer red instead of black, but ideologically when everyone truly understands what each view is about, it draws a line in the sand. Anarchism is allowing all to simply live by natural law. Don’t hurt people and don’t tale their stuff. Beyond that, do and say whatever the hell ya want. The 2 main parties and the socialists aren’t just gonna let ya live how ya feel most free. Socialism is statism and therefore not compatible with anarchism.
