That’s cool. I wish them all the best.
now that they have electricity , they need sewage and giant toilet so they can flush down the turds in blue…
they might have to disguise the toilet as a church though.
I wonder how this project will be received by the authorities?
This is a nice contrast to these Randian cryptocurrency arseholes:
Straight up colonization. Fuck these assholes.
I would think part of the lesson here is:
If you’re going to do good, don’t call yourself an Anarchist. Call yourself a Christian Liberationist or something. It confuses the Man.
If you’re going to call yourself an Anarchist, go ahead and build some bombs.
Antifa? Seriously? Where did this come from? Who is telling the police to look for people fighting against fascism? Better yet, why aren’t the police helping fight fascism?
If they can do it, the rest of us can as well. Local generation and storage of power is a great way to strengthen the grid.
I am 100% in favor of Confusing the Man, but using leftist liberation theology
hasn’t worked so well in Latin America in the past, mostly due to entrenched opposition from the Vatican itself (not to mention military opposition from the US via the School of the Americas, etc.)
Plus, I myself might make common cause with left religion in a pinch, but would be profoundly uncomfortable with it unless it were, say, Quakerly/nonhierarchical in nature. You can’t be an anarchist and think the Pope has a more specialler connection to god at the same time–or at least, I can’t reconcile the two.
really wanted to Confuse the Man, I’d start calling cooperative mutual aid “Bootstrapping”.
Leo Tolstoy would disagree with you.
Christian anarchism is a movement in political theology that claims anarchism is inherent in Christianity and the Gospels. It is grounded in the belief that there is only one source of authority to which Christians are ultimately answerable—the authority of God as embodied in the teachings of Jesus. It therefore rejects the idea that human governments have ultimate authority over human societies. Christian anarchists denounce the state, believing it is violent, deceitful and, when glorified More ...
The Kingdom of God Is Within You (pre-reform Russian: Царство Божіе внутри васъ; post-reform Russian: Царство Божие внутри вас, tr. Tsárstvo Bózhiye vnutrí vas) is a non-fiction book written by Leo Tolstoy. A philosophical treatise, the book was first published in Germany in 1894 after being banned in his home country of Russia. It is the culmination of thirty years of Tolstoy's thinking, and lays out a new organization for society based on an interpretation of Christianity focusing on univers Th...
I must be misinformed because this seems like the opposite of anarchy. How is it anything but socialism? People getting together and pooling resources to build infrastructure that benefits all of society is not what anarchy is supposed to be about. It’s like building a Starbucks and calling it punk rock.
Pierre-Joseph Proudhon (French: [pjɛʁ.ʒozɛf pʁu.dɔ̃]; 15 January 1809 – 19 January 1865) was a French politician and the founder of mutualist philosophy. He was the first person to declare himself an anarchist, using that term and is widely regarded as one of the ideology's most influential theorists. Proudhon is even considered by many to be the "father of anarchism". He became a member of the French Parliament after the Revolution of 1848, whereafter he referred to himself as a federal Proudhon...
Mutualism is an economic theory and anarchist school of thought that advocates a society with free markets and occupation and use, or usufruct property norms. One implementation of this scheme involves the establishment of a mutual-credit bank that would lend to producers at a minimal interest rate, just high enough to cover administration. Mutualism is based on a version of the labor theory of value holding that when labor or its product is sold, in exchange it ought to receive goods or se Altho...
Pyotr Alexeyevich Kropotkin (/kroʊˈpɒtkɪn/; Russian: Пётр Алексе́евич Кропо́ткин; December 9, 1842 – February 8, 1921) was a Russian activist, revolutionary, scientist, geographer and philosopher who advocated anarcho-communism.
Born into an aristocratic land-owning family, he attended a military school and later served as an officer in Siberia, where he participated in several geological expeditions. He was imprisoned for his activism in 1874 and managed to escape two years later. He spent th...
The Conquest of Bread (French: La Conquête du Pain; Russian: Хлеб и воля) is an 1892 book by the Russian anarcho-communist Peter Kropotkin. Originally written in French, it first appeared as a series of articles in the anarchist journal Le Révolté. It was first published in Paris with a preface by Élisée Reclus, who also suggested the title. Between 1892 and 1894, it was serialized in part in the London journal Freedom, of which Kropotkin was a co-founder. In the work, Kropotkin points out what h...
Anarcho-communism (also known as anarchist communism, free communism, stateless communism, libertarian communism and communist anarchism) is a political philosophy and theory of anarchism which advocates the abolition of the state, capitalism, wage labour and private property (while retaining respect for personal property, along with collectively-owned items, goods and services) in favor of common ownership of the means of production, direct democracy (among com Some forms of anarchist communism,...
Fascists have the coolest uniforms and the most opportunities for bashing in a few heads. Why would they want to fight that which they desire most?
Are there even any far-right white nationalist groups for Antifa to fight in Puerto Rico? It doesn’t seem like the island’s demographic makeup would be a great fit for Neo-Nazis or the KKK to get much of a foothold.
There are fascist Jews. What makes you think there wouldn’t be fascist Puerto Ricans? Also, quite a few Puerto Rican’s consider themselves white…
*the irrationality of fascist ideologies also allows them the flexibility to take root anywhere there exists a non-insignificant quantity of nationalists.
@the_borderer provided some good resources, but to sum it up, modern anarchist philosophy sprung from early socialist thought, so yeah, socialist AF. Philosophical anarchism has nothing to do with nihilism, and is certainly anti-capitalist.
As long as they’re on a solar kick, why not build one of those parabolic hot dog cookers and cook up some Long Pig when confronted by the boys in blue? /s
