Society is like a stew. If you don't stir it up every once in a while then a layer of scum floats to the top.
Anarchism is not a romantic fable but the hardheaded realization, based on five thousand years of experience, that we cannot entrust the management of our lives to kings, priests, politicians, generals, and county commissioners.
In the land of bleating sheep and braying jackasses, one brave and honest man is bound to create a scandal.
And the so-called 'political process' is a fraud: Our elected officials, like our bureaucratic functionaries, like even our judges, are largely the indentured servants of the commercial interests.
If you hope for any sort of dialogue and unity with all factions on the vaguely leftist or radical side of politics, you must cease from silly verbal abuse. If you don't want it, then we go on as we are, fractious and impotent.
Anarchism is democracy taken seriously.
Our 'neoconservatives' are neither new nor conservative, but old as Babylon and evil as Hell.
