Anarchists unite...

11 February 2013, 09:00

Anarchy, According to the Merriam-Webster online dictionary anarchy is "a state of lawlessness or political disorder due to the absence of governmental authority". This neat piece of propaganda goes a long way to prove my point that we are already in a state of anarchy because, contrary to this widely held dictionary view, anarchy in the conventional sense these days is precisely because of the presence of government.

Wikipedia puts it more accurately as being "to refer to a society without a publicly enforced government or violently enforced political authority". In the modern world the latter part of the definition holds true and hence serves to further substantiate my assessment. In any case, publicly enforced government ceased to exist with the advent of modern democracy.

To prove the latter one needs only to look at our "democratic" system in South Africa, Europe and the USA viz. once every so often the people elect a leader and that is the last democratic function the individual performs. From that point on the duly elected leaders may use their power (for that is what it is about) to declare war, ignore rapes, grafts, corruption and murders and to steal money.

It is no accident that unskilled people who become politicians are generally wealthy - look at Julius Malema.
Anarchy is also defined as the absence of order and utopian freedom. However, there is a different definition of anarchy which is far more accurate and it is used far too infrequently. In this definition anarchy is defined merely as an absence of government. Hand in hand with this there is the philosophical view that the notion of "State" is immoral. Most people would agree that this borders the unthinkable but to those I would merely reply thus: look around you; what do you see? There is murder, theft, larceny, cover-ups and unbridled warfare...all in the name of the State.

An example of this is the "war on terror", which is a thinly veiled war on Islam for oil and financed by big business, declared by power-mad, democratically elected despots in the name of some god that nobody has ever seen; fighting a holy war against people of a god those people have also never seen. It is good for business to hype these tensions up and instead of cooling our heels the media is actively participating in the feeding frenzy. But let us be clear that the media are also just people with preferences and who are also indoctrinated.

We are so indoctrinated that we have become what we have been warned against; anarchists. Hence, in the current status quo and by current norms those who profess to be leaders and in charge are the real anarchists while those who are trying to change the status quo are labeled as counter-revolutionaries by the anarchists who are in power. The public who are disaffected by the underlying issues are mostly ignorant but aware of the gradual heating of the water. They, by virtue of their ignorance, think in simplistic terms and continue to attempt to cause change by acting within their frame of reference: man crosses me. I hit him in the head. End of story.

I am sick and tired to pay for helicopters for anarchists (Mugabe)I am sick and tired of paying for luxury cars and jets for anarchists (Zuma)I am sick and tired of paying for wars we want no part of (USA in Muslim countries)I am sick and tired of paying more for everything because an anarchist says so (USA sanctions in Iran)I am sick and tired of working hard just so that others can print money for free (the banks)I am sick and tired of being told what to do by these people.

I want order! And so, I call on all you outlaw anarchists to unite and to join forces so that we can create our own anarchy. We need no leader as we are all leaders. If someone steals, rapes or murders then we deal with them in the streets of our townships. Yes, we need laws but not politicians to tell us what is right. Because we know what is right...more than they do.
