Anarchy =/= violence
Anarchy =/= chaos
Anarchy =/= “leftist” agenda
Anarchy = voluntary interaction, no coercion
Anarchy = peace and harmony
Anarchy = no rulers (*not* to be confused w/no authority. I would yield to the authority of a car mechanic to fix my car, for example)
Please know that if someone is saying that “anarchists” are plotting with Democrats and/or Unions that those being called “anarchists” are not real anarchists and the person doing the talking is only using the lie that people think anarchy is. With this OWS thing picking up steam, mainstream folks are trying to associate negative things within OWS as being done by anarchists. This is not the case.
For more on real anarchy, look into Molyneux, Rothbard, Mises, the non-aggression principle…
Thank you for reading and reblogging!
Jesus was a radical social activist, so his followers must be the same. It’s just that Jesus never once placed any trust in the government of his day to address social issues. He rather just addressed social issues by how he lived and taught. So too, we who are Jesus’ followers are to place no trust in government to address social issues. We’re simply called to address them by how we live.
Following Jesus’ example, we’re to place our trust in the power of the cross – the power of self-sacrificial love – not the power of the sword. We’re to trust the power of Calvary, not Caesar. And this is why I believe those who spend their time and energy trying to control the political arena “in Jesus’ name” are profoundly missing the point.
a3 stands for Agora, Anarchy and Action.
Agora is a term now used to describe a “truly” free market. It is a Greek word meaning meeting place, and in ancient Greece, markets were the meeting places. For more on this subject, see Agorism.info.
Anarchy is simply no ruling class or elite. It is NOT chaos and vigilantism! I want to make that perfectly clear! Real anarchists believe in living their lives without the oppressive presence of the government. Most adhere to the Non-Aggression Principle and have a “No victim, no crime” mantra. In other words, anarchists will not incite looting and riots (like recently seen in England) because that would be creating victims.
Action is just that - action. It can be something more visible, such as protesting, civil disobedience, blogging, journalism, etc and it can also be more subtle, such as just living your life as freely as you can.
Please consider all angles in politics and economics. Do not allow the propaganda machines that are the mainstream media to cloud your perspective. Be open, honest and practice debating. In order to keep and maintain true liberty and freedom we bear the responsibility of knowing what we are talking about instead of depending on others, that usually have a more selfish motive than we do.
