Socialism could never work as it goes against human nature. We, as a race, naturally compete.
Ha. Whom says this? The capitalists. In this system, yes, we compete instead of cooperate. We do this because we live in a competitive system, where the few exploit the majority to live in luxury and throw the rest to the devil- as long as they still work. Let me take you back to pre-civilisation, as it is so called (doublespeak).
What would man have to gain from turning on his brother? Nothing.
If they cooperated, however, they could get more than 2 men working alone. Thus, it doesn’t make sense to compete.
We have overcome these hardships that hunter gatherer societies faced. Now, a few hundered men with machinery can feed ten thousand. Survival is the key motive, the will to live. With money abolished, we are merely cutting out the middleman between work and survival, as we need money to live, thus, we work to live.
The ‘communism can’t work because of human nature’ argument has been debunked, ironically using human nature and examples from so called ‘primitive communism’.
Capitalism can’t work because of human nature, as humans don’t like being exploited. Anarchism means one is free to do what they want as long as it does it involve exploration of another, or it limits others freedom.
We will have no economic chaos, or any chaos.
Opposed to the caricature of anarchism, anarchy equals order.
We all want freedom. What we do not understand is that the freedom of all is necessary to our freedom. To be free, one must also have economic freedom, i.e. the freedom to live as they want without being exploited. This freedom we yearn for is limited by capitalism, where a minority exploit the majority. Equality also is necessary for freedom, as if the freedom of all is necessary to our freedom, then we must be equal; none must be exploited, none must own private (not personal, a distinction must be made) property, none may rule another.
Anarchy can be summed up with this phrase: No gods, No masters. If we have no masters, we are all equal and we are all free. The state prohibits freedom and equality with it’s police force, which is essentially the private army of the bourgeoisie- thus it must be abolished.
Our cry is ‘liberty or death’, and we encourage you to take up that cry too. We can not achieve liberty for the people because the people are required to take their liberty. We can not simply bring about anarchism through a coup d’état! We must educate the people on the ‘evils’ of capitalism and the possibility of the freedom and equality that is anarchism. That is the purpose of this site- to be a flame to pierce the ubiquitous darkness.
With your help our flame can turn into a bonfire. Tell all those whom you know. Take up the cry ‘liberty or death!’
Anarchism has many enemies, left and right, whom spread lies against it. I hope to tell you what anarchism is, and what it isn’t. Let us start by debunking some of these lies.
Your employer, your boss, your politicians will not tell you the truth, as anarchism would make them lose their power, and stop them exploiting and leeching off the proletariat.
So let us respond to the criticisms from the left, as the right intentionally lie to discredit anarchism and to keep their power. Marx and Engels said anarchism would come from socialism, but their adherents denounce it as disorder and chaos. Even the leninists, who denounce anarchists as reactionaries appear to ignore Lenin, who also claimed if one was to follow Bolshevism, we would get anarchy. So what is anarchism not?
Anarchism is not bombs, disorder and chaos;
It is not robbery and murder;
It is not every man for himself;
It is not a return to barbarianism.
Anarchism is the opposite of that.
Anarchism means no one enslave you, rob you, or impose upon you;
It means you are free to do what you want, and not compelled to do what you don’t want;
It means you should have the chance to choose how you want to live without anyone else interfering;
It means that the next fellow should have the same freedom as you, that everyone should have the same rights and liberties;
It means that there should be no monopoly, no oppression, or taking advantage of your fellow man.
To sum up anarchism, it is a condition or society where all men and women are free, where all equally enjoy the benefits of a sensible and ordered life.
