From the World National Anarchist Alliance.
The great thing about National Anarchism is that it works as a conflict resolver regarding the various types of anarchism in existence. A lot of fighting happens, especially between the capitalist and more socialist forms. Anarchy is not a “winner takes all” type of society. The concept that should stay with all anarchists is the concept of a voluntary society.
National Anarchism solves the conflict by acknowledging that different people have different ideas regarding how they would like to see society. In acknowledging this, the solution of living in separate tribes is proposed. This allows anyone from the anarcho-capitalists to the anarcho-communists to have a community dedicated to their ideals. Basically just about any distinct ideology could be used to form a tribe around. Economics, religion, sexual orientation, race (if you so desire) and many other categories could be used to build a community around.
The best thing about this solution is that a tribe succeeds or fails on its own merits. A voluntary society means a society of responsibility for how you live, and what type of community you would associate with.
The most upsetting about all of this is that many anarchists brand National Anarchism as “fascism” clothed to persuade anarchists over. The only workable solution to sort out our differences is demonized and left to the wayside. Sometimes I wonder if just using the title “Anarcho-Tribalism” would convince more people. I am convinced that even if we used that title exclusively, Chomsky and others would continue to find problems with it.
Are we the first to use “nation” to describe a tribe and not actual borders of a country? The answer is no, and just about everyone would remember this fact if they thought about it. The various Native American tribes are sometimes described as “nations”. One could disagree with their top-down vertical structure of having a chief at the top (and I do), but this still proves our point that a “nation” does not mean what people take it to mean in the modern era. People do not accuse them having to be pawns of the establishment to call themselves nations.
I hope this shows some visitors the frustration that National Anarchists get when these arguments are leveled against them. The “Antifa” crowd would like to beat anyone up who even suggest such a thing. This shows that they clearly do not accept the Non-Aggression Principle or any ideal of Voluntary association. Some “anarchists” make themselves into leaders and destroy the concept of anarchy altogether.
I am making a call to anarchists of all stripes to consider National Anarchism as the solution to the problem of division. If we all unite, we can see liberty much sooner. Let us all fight for the right of people to form communities which choose their own economic system. As a mutualist, anarcho-capitalism doesn’t scare me, because I believe that a free market will inevitably lead to a voluntary form of socialism. Even if this is not the case, let people stand or fall on their own two feet.
Unite to smash the interests of the State and the global Elite. I don’t know how much more fair anyone can make it other than to let everyone choose which type of society they want to live in. Trying to force people to adopt your ideology is selfish in the highest degree. I would never try to force someone into Anarcho-Mutualism or Buddhism. It is fair to ask that everyone has the same attitude, lest you sacrifice anarchy on the altar of Selfishness.
