btw, I base my conclusion that goverment should not exist on the idea: "don't hate the player, hate the game". I don't hate politicians/government workers, just the idea of government itself. please don't hate..

I think not. Zephyr, go to the News and Isuues section and meet Ian (or human6, as Imagine puts it.) You guys have something in common, but then that depends on the situation.:P

ancap (anarcho capitalist); free enterprise replaces the state
 
ancom (anarcho communism): free association of collectives and worker owned factories
 
muatualism: free market with worker owned collectives instead of hierarchical firms

I'm more or less an anarchist, but I don't always put myself in the name box. 
 
If I'm feeling specific I'm sometimes a rational anarchist (whatever that means). 
 
Greetings, ZephyrPunk.  Are you a conspiracy nut too?  Double greetings then.  Look forward to getting to know you.

Cool.  You ever read Behold A Pale Horse by William Cooper?  Right now I'm in the middle of The Creature from Jekyll Island, which isn't exactly CT but reads like it.  It's about the Federal Reserve and how it controls the government by controlling the flow of (fiat) money.  I'll probably post something about it in News/Issues when I finish.

I can't say I'm fully in agreeal with this, but to an extent I am. A lot of the troubles seem to be caused by the government. IBut at the same time, what would we do without a structure?

What would the world be without government? Government seems to be submission to a certain few that would help keep order, peace, and improve our daily lives.
 
Wouldn't anarchism of any sort require world peace? In anarchism, it would be every man for himself, right? Each individual would have to make some sort of agreement with another to keep peace. Disputes would be handled through the sword, and justice would merely be revenge for the individual. Bartering would be the only means of trade, which is an up in my opinion. But anarchism will always have its problems, especially in its justice system. And someone will always rise to the top of the food chain and claim ownership on everything. It always works out that way.

really it depends upon what kind of anarchy you're talking about, in my idealistic setting everyone would be for eachother, except maybe I'm more of a mix between mutualism and ancap.. I mean, like I like the idea of extreme capitalism because it would work with larger groups, but if you have a bunch of smaller groups (like city-state sized) I think mutualism is the way to go. I'll put my essay on anarchy types on here tomorrow or whenever I get to it, but it will probably be tomorrow, and it will prob. give you a better understanding. Anarchy isn't just chaos, it's just another idea on how to live peacfully with eachother as humans. One of my more basic, less detailed philosophies is that nothing else has ever really worked.

First a definition of anarchism:
 
 


Anarchism, then, really stands for the liberation of the human mind from the dominion of religion; the liberation of the human body from the dominion of property; liberation from the shackles and restraint of government. Anarchism stands for a social order based on the free grouping of individuals for the purpose of producing real social wealth; an order that will guarantee to every human being free access to the earth and full enjoyment of the necessities of life, according to individual desires, tastes, and inclinations.


 


 


 


Emma Goldman, Anarchism and Other Essays, Anarchism What It Really Stands For 
 
 
 
Taken as this I believe that we see anarchism  all around us. When you help your family to do the dishes without asking "whats in it for me" your practicing anarchism.
 
 
 
 
At many times in history anarchist principles have swept over whole regions:
 
 
 
 
The Ukraine 1918-21, worked with the red army before being betrayed.
 
 
 
The Russian Revolution the Soviets were direct democratic institutions set up by the people of the region. Lenin destroyed them and maded them part of the state appartus. He killed the Russian Revolution.
 
 
 
 
The Spanish Revolution, in 1936 a Nazi backed coup occurred in Spain, in much of western Spain anarchists were the main force in driving back the army. They found themselves stronger than the national government, and soon set about creating an anarchist society. Where all industries were taken over by there workers, and the wage system was abolisioned.
 
 
 
 
 
Shinmin Autonomous Region: founded in Manchuria by exiled Korean Anarcho Communists. It was amazingly democratic, but it was crushed by Soviet and Japanese Imperialists. Its survivors were a major threat to the Kim's.
