Anarchy


Wikipedia defines anarchism as “a political philosophy which considers the state undesirable, unnecessary and harmful, and instead promotes a stateless society, or anarchy.  It seeks to diminish or even abolish authority in the conduct of human relations.  Anarchists may widely disagree on what additional criteria are required in anarchism.  The Oxford Companion to Philosophy says, ‘there is no single defining position that all anarchists hold, and those considered anarchists at best share a certain family resemblance.'”

Ezine @rticles records the following:

Anarchism is the political belief that society should have no government, laws, police, or other authority, but should be a free association of all its members. Anarchist Philosophy is, in essence a continually debated philosophy with a broad range of viewpoints. One example of of such a point of view is that of William Godwin, a well known and popular anarchist philosopher who lived in Britain in the late 18th century, who believed that the “euthanasia of government” would be achieved through “individual moral reformation”.

Anarchism is a philosophy on a political plane that takes into consideration ideals and opinions which view the state, as an instated governing force, to not be required, oppressive, and harmful to the further liberation and evolution of mankind.

Particular anarchists sometimes have more or less ideas for what anarchism means to them, many anarchists philosophize with each other on whose ideas, or which strain of anarchism is purer. Really, this is anarchism in its most basic form – an ever changing and very personal set of ideas that can constantly change and adapt to however the person wishes to apply them to his or her own life.

According to The Oxford Companion to Philosophy, “there is no single defining position that all anarchists hold, and those considered anarchists at best share a certain family resemblance.”

Anarchism can be a political theory which aims to create anarchy, “the absence of a master, of a sovereign.” (P-J Proudhon, What is Property, p. 264) In other words, anarchism is a theory for a political system that encompasses a society which people can freely co-operate with whom they choose, on an equal field. As such, anarchism opposes all forms of hierarchical control – be that control by the state or a capitalist – as harmful to the individual and their individuality as well as unnecessary. This idea is contrary to many peoples interpretation of anarchy as something equivalent with disorder or the breakdown of society. Such publications as “The anarchists cookbook” have not helped this perception.

“Anarchism” and “anarchy” are widely regards as some of the most misunderstood and poorly represented ideas in political theory. Taken in a general sense, these words to many people equate to “chaos” or “without order” and due to this – as a case of “guilty by association”, anarchists want chaos in a social sense and even a return to a more devolved time.” This, generally is not always the case.   Article Source

In my opinion, this political philosophy is as dangerous as Socialism, Communism, Marxism, Libertarianism, and any other “ism” you can think of.  In many cases is it worse because as an underlying theme is the overthrow of the American Government regardless of method.

You must have no misunderstanding regarding my stance on violence within our Republic where political differences are concerned.  I do not now nor have I ever suggested, invited or encouraged any form of violence against our elected leaders.  The only truly successful removal of our unresponsive elected representatives is by VOTING THEM OUT OF OFFICE!

TEA Parties were started as a way for the American people to stand up in our hometowns all across this nation in an attempt to show solidarity in one respect – we have been Taxed Enough Already and we have had enough of the spend and tax methods our politicians have forced on us for the last several decades.  Admittedly, the primary purpose has been modified to include other laws being forced on us against our will by the Socialists who today are in control of our government.

Yes, we want them out of office – but we want it done legally, non-violently, and finally with such a loud voice there can be no doubt of our true feelings.  We want to use our votes to speak for us as it seems that is the only voice they are willing to listen to.

Today’s email offerings included an alert that our April 15 Tax Day TEA Parties will be infiltrated and disrupted this year by a group of anarchists who have as their goal the overthrow of the American Government and the institution of chaos in our nation.  They may not say this publicly on any of their websites, and to be honest with you, I’m not going to give them my IP address by reading their propaganda for myself.  There are enough ways for them to get that information without my handing in to them on a silver platter.

Infoshop News provides their plans.

Crash the tea parties!

On April 15th thousands of right-wingers will attend rallies in cities and towns across the United States. The organizers of this nationwide day of protest call it a tea party. This tea party movement that emerged only a year ago is a coalition of conservatives, anti-Semites, fascists, libertarians, racists, constitutionalists, militia men, gun freaks, homophobes, Ron Paul supporters, Alex Jones conspiracy types and American flag wavers. If the tea party movement continues to grow in size and strength there is a big chance they will dominate this country in the near future. If the tea party movement takes over this country they will really hurt poor people by getting rid of social programs like food stamps, unemployment benefits, disability benefits, student aid, free health care, etc. The tea party movement will say these programs must be gotten rid of because hard-working taxpayers cannot afford to pay for these things especially when the economy is in a depression. There are three options we have with the tea party movement:

1. Organize counter-protests against the tea party demonstrations, same time, same place. This is probably the best option. We need to get in the streets on April 15th and show the tea party movement that there are lots of people out there who oppose their agenda.

2. Get individual tea party protesters to leave the right-wing and move to the left politically. That would involve passing out stuff like this at the tea party demonstrations: http://www.anarchist-studies.org/node/299

3. Ignore the tea party movement. This is the worst option because without anyone opposing them they could easily gain power.

They even provide TEA Party organizational websites for their supporters:

Tea party websites, so you can spy on them:

In an earlier article I wrote, “It has become painfully obvious to us that the liberals in Congress have their own best interests at the root of these outlandish bills they are forcing down our throats.  Their greed seems to know no bounds.  Until they hit the brick wall that is the American people.”

Make no mistake about it – anarchy is as disastrous an end to our Republic as Socialism is.  This political movement must be shown for the ignorance they espouse just as any other.

To them I would say, “HOW DARE YOU compare me to ‘… anti-Semites, fascists, libertarians, racists, homophobes, Ron Paul supporters, Alex Jones conspiracy types…’!  On the other hand, THANK YOU for the compliment of noticing that I AM part of ‘a coalition of conservatives … constitutionalists… and American flag wavers.’

I plead guilty to loving my country, my flag and my Constitution!  I am a proud Conservative and will remain that way until God calls me home.  I cry when the American Flag passes in review as I proudly place my hand over my heart in salute.  I make a point to go out of my way to say, “thank you” to every military person I see.  My heart swells at the first notes of the “Star Spangled Banner.”

I clearly remember standing on the high street in Canterbury, Kent, England with my hand over my heart reciting the Pledge of Allegiance to that Flag that a friend of mine had graciously displayed from the upstairs level of his restaurant for me.

Anarchists, Socialists, Marxists, Liberals everywhere, Libertarians and all you other socially unacceptable groups, this is for you from Americans everywhere who believe in freedom and the rights of a people to be self-governed.
