Communist Anarchism: A Manifesto of Equality

August 6, 2011

This essay was written when I was still very new to radical philosophy. It was voted to be published by a book of student work (essays, stories, poems, photos, and the like) at Dutchess Community College. It was written in a matter of a week specifically for this publication. The other day I was asked […]

Black anarchism and anarchist pluralism

July 13, 2011

It has come to my attention, especially most recently through my conversations with a close group of friends (particularly I would like to mention Chelsea, Mike, and Cali Mike) that the nit-picky sub-classes of anarchism are destroying it as a philosophy. So, I have decided to attempt to establish a universal view of anarchism to […]

The problem I see between the relationship of the State and its people is the same as the problem with personal relationships. When people enter a relationship with someone, they place new expectations on that person on the grounds of the new relationship.

The following is a question and my response from Tumblr that I found worthy of publish here. nevertakethelifeofarealg asked: In an anarchist society, what would happen in this situation: One man kills another man. Is the killer killed? Jailed? Let me begin by saying that is an impossible question to answer. The world is not anarchist. People […]

Ants on a Wasp

May 20, 2011

For the past 30 minutes I sat and watched the miracle of natural communism as Peter Kropotkin would describe in his Mutual Aid. Last night I hit a wasp on my window (sad, I know, but I’m allergic) and it fell, still intact, to the window sill below. I watched as one ant approached the […]
