Anarchists the new Bugaboo?
« on: April 01, 2009, 01:21 PM NHFT »

After Oklahoma City, militias were the big bugaboo that everyone was supposed to be scared of, then after 9/11 it was terrorists, are anarchists next?  At one of the parties conventions last year (I don't recall if it was democrats or republicans) there was some riot started by "anarchists".  Same thing now at G20.  Are we going to be the new thing that people are supposed to be terrified of?

Good question. It seems this is an inevitable step in the process of becoming more successful, i.e. the fact that anarchy is becoming far less fringe. I say "far less fringe" right now because that's just the first step toward becoming a part of mainstream understanding. I'd say this is good news. Of course, we should be doing all we can to educate the public about what we're really about and we cannot be too redundant stressing that we are working for peaceful evolution and not insurgency.

Some anarchist on the left still believe in "propaganda of the deed" and don't look at private property favorably (without exploitation). Rothbard questioned whether or not any corporation that derived more than 50% of it's profits via the state could be considered "private property" and thus just for appropriation via homesteading.

The black-clad, red bandana-masked, rock throwing "anarchists"communists have been burning cars and smashing windows at every G-whatever meeting for a couple of decades now. No doubt some of them are provocateurs, but many are just brainwashed angry yutes who believe capitalism is evil.

There is a very interesting discussion of this issue here.

yutes


Two what? Did you say "yutes"?

Yeah I like saying that, people don't even know what you're talking about. It's feels so non threatening too which I enjoy since I seem to scare everyone I come into contact with. But I do like telling people I'm an anarchist too, because well they seem so surprised, like it never crossed their mind there are other options.

The G20 isn't really about free market though... the capitalistic aspects of it are more corporatist and socialist in nature.

Correct.
But governments tend to support corporatist or socialist policies... even both at the same time.
