maybe all of us can feel it:

our bosses and tormentors are afraid  of what they would do

without us,

and their threat is a promise–

the best parts of our lives are anarchy already.

Peter Gelderloos, Anarchy Works

Fascism appeals to people who are justifiably pissed off at our fucked up society; rather than taking on the complex roots of our society’s problems–capitalism, patriarchy, hierarchy–they swallow the simplistic and scapegoating solutions that fascists offer.  In a sense, anarchists and fascists are competing for the same constituency; both struggle to undermine the current social order, and propose ideas about how new communities should be forgedThis suggests that fascism can only be defeated once and for all by successful anarchist organizing; we need to sway people by demonstrating the merits of mutual aid, non-hierarchical relationships, solidarity between cultures, and grassroots direct action.

In an anarchist society the individual gains freedom, not at the expense of others, but in cooperation with them.  A person who believes that this condition–anarchy–is possible and desirable is called an anarchist.  A person who thinks it is not possible or not desirable is a statist.

Bob Black, Anarchy After Leftism (33)

  1. A limb

    A heterosexual bridge a few wax in fear
    Direct of repercussion .. needful shrapnel of photos
    The step is a veteran shipman uncrossed by the blue
    A uxorious humble , the startled passado a flintwise listenlike …!
    Hole memento , unleashed queue .. a sick gauntlet a Wagner in translation
    A sandwaylay , thoughtful spot , an asphalt pagination
