There Are No “Anarchist Systems” without Anarchist Fundamentals

“Discussions about anarchy and anarchism too often jump right into talking points about competing ways to organize economic or political structures. This doesn’t seem to happen only when skeptics and cynics are present — it also tends to be a pitfall for those who value a stateless future. But it’s putting the cart before the horse. Whether you’re trying to introduce someone to anarchist ideas or even going through your own intellectual journey, thinking about anarchy first in terms of systems and structures is a false start for many reasons. Most importantly, it misses fundamental principles.” (07/16/21)
