Great piece from Richard Spencer. It’s interesting that Richard understands what ninety-seven percent of the self-proclaimed “anarchists” I have met in twenty plus years of studying anarchist movements do not understand, i.e. that the removal of an over-arching state system that imposes a uniform value system will result in the proliferation of subsystems representing a wide plurality of values.
I also suspect that Richard is right that collapse of the U.S. state at present with no alternative plan might well produce a “Mad Max” scenario. The state has wiped out, co-opted or otherwise weakened virtually all contending institutions that might step in to fill the void. Collapse of the state might well produce a New Orleans 2005 or Los Angeles 1992 kind of scenario. This prospect makes the building of alternative infrastructure all the more important.
