TotW: Helping People

There's an old story about a man who ran up to a woman on the street, threw her to the ground, rolled her around, and beat at her. He was then called a hero and given a medal. She had been on fire, and he was putting the fire out and saving her life. It's a story about story telling, but also about how context changes the meaning of what we do.

We generally prefer our actions to be just another strike amongst the many, adding to the already existent chorus of rage and discontent. As the crisis deepens and the feelings of isolation and helplessness appear to be sinking in, it is important to remember that one way of regaining agency in our lives is through attack and disruption.

The inherent existential element in anarchism

From El Libertario, By Tomás Ibáñez

If anarchism values diversity, it can't surprise us that it be plural, diverse, polymorph, and it is to such a degree that it becomes more appropriate to speak of “anarchisms” than anarchism.
