Anarchist Federation of Individuals and Locals in America

So here are some principles for forming an anarchist federation of individuals and locals in America. Other principles? Better principles? Your idea on how to do a federation? Don't really care if you don't want a federation, we get it, this is a conversation for those who do.

re marlon's encouragement to move from non- to anti-racism

the belief in ‘categories’ as independently-existing things-in-themselves entities [yes, 'spooks'] such as ‘races’ is the great folly of Western culture. they are the product of the architecture of noun-and-verb Indo-European/scientific language-and-grammar. by contrast, the languages of indigenous aboriginals have a relational architecture which employs verbs where we use nouns.

continuing from anarchist federations

our indo-european languages are used to construct 'semantic realities' in which 'names' are used as place-holders for sources of authorship of results which imply great power in the sense of positively causal authorship.

so, we can agree that literate people who buy into some or other 'semantic reality' can manifest coordinated behaviour aka 'organization'.

Why It Doesn't Matter Whose Elected: Anarchy or Annihilation

Neo liberal doctrine was brought about due to structural changes within the capitalists base structure rather than as a result of electoral politics. Capitalisms own internal contradictions along with global upheavals in the peripheral states led to a shift from Lacanianism/the welfare state in the world system.

Criticizing the Center

The basis of violence is formed around the accusation of fascism. If the conditions are right and some one or some group happens to fit as close to the literal definition of fascism, the more likely anarchists and allies are to violently attack them if they enter the radar of anarchist intelligence or attempt any public gathering.

continuing from social media, revolt, and civilization

'wounding the beast' is a binary interpretation

in a relational world, there is only relational transformation.

in trying to represent relational transformation, a convenient tool is language, like ours, which converts the dynamics of relational transformation to terms of 'things' and 'what things do' and thus construct a 'semantic reality' that we tend to use for our 'operative reality' [one that orchestrates and shapes our individual and collective behaviours].

continuing conversation from can we live as anarchists

sir einzige, once again, it seems we are on a 'similar page'

as stirner says, in the same vein as nietzsche;

"[F]or 'being' is abstraction, as is even 'the I'. Only I am not abstraction alone: I am all in all, consequently, even abstraction or nothing: I am all and nothing; ...." -- Max Stirner

how can we talk about 'living real lives' as 'anarchists' without exploring such assumptions on 'being/becoming'?
