The best anarchists refuse to be ruled by the idea of anarchism.— Slope of Function (@SlopeOfFunction) February 12, 2019
Ultimately you can either value freedom or some random dead static thing. Some specific state of affairs rather than motion and agency. To identify with freedom, to truly live, to embrace possibility, is to reject and overcome all walls, including those between one another.
By declaring ourselves for the abolition of rulership itself we have created a space for striving; the furthest particulars will always be unsettled. Anarchism does not represent a final state of affairs, but a direction, a vector pointing beyond all possible compromises.
so anarchist I refuse to make to-do lists because its clearly an attempt of present self to assert authority over future selves.— Slope of Function (@SlopeOfFunction) July 8, 2018
"Resistance to authority," said Mike Travers, who was there with his 5- year-old son, Sam. He came, he said, to check out the state of anarchist theory. "I thought of myself as an anarchist 20 years ago," said Travers, 47. "Anarchism is great as an attitude. I lost faith that you could run the world according to anarchists' principles." He sighed: "It's hard being an anarchist parent," he said, "because as a parent, you have to be the authority figure." A couple of hours later on his way out, Travers showed off what he had picked up: a book about the Critical Mass bike protests, a history of the Industrial Workers of the World and a George W. Bush coloring book for Sam -- the future of anarchism, Travers said proudly.
