Any other anarchists on here?
 
Hey! I was just wondering if there were any other people on this forum who subscribe to anti-authoritarian ethics and politics. Some [hopefully respectful] debate is always entertaining and enriching.

cartman?

No. This is actually supposed to be somewhat serious.

chiron 11-07-2010 03:55 PM

If it was serious then shouldn't you make a point before posing a question.

For me, any debate regarding anarchy or other political systems fundamentally involves a debate over human nature. The notion of self-government strikes me as rather empty, the basic question is always: how do we deal with antagonistic people? How do we define antagonistic? It seems to me that as soon as you answer those two questions a structure begins to emerge, and as soon as there is a structure there have to be those responsible for maintaining and enforcing that structure.

We'd all rape and kill one another, then die out. Anarchy is foolish.

Personally speaking, I wouldn't rape or kill anyone, but I guess you might rape or kill me.

Funny how animals don't have a system of government but they don't kill and rape each other and then die out.
In fact, Bonobos just sit around and fuck and massage each other all day long. :D

Not to suggest that I already have plans laid out in the event that all structure and government collapses.

So you're basically saying that humans have absolutely no sense of right and wrong as it pertains to their own morality, and simply don't rape and kill because there would be a legal consequence?

No, I'm pretty much saying that all of the *******s would destroy everyone else because they would have a world with no consequences.
