Electoralism/Democratism

Dear Biden Voter…

Debunking the presumptions of liberal democracy should be the main intellectual project of anarchists in the modern world. The majority of the world’s nations are now liberal democracies, and all of the developed countries. In the ancient world, the royals were worshipped as gods (which still takes place in some remote Asia societies where the Abrahamic religions never took root). When Abrahamism became the dominant theological paradigm, political legitimacy came to be based on the divine right of kings and dynastic tradition. Modern totalitarian in the 20th century was simply an effort to resurrect the god-emperors in a secular form. Very few people in modern societies take any of this seriously but the pieties of liberal democracy are almost universally embraced. Voluntary association, not a social contract. Voluntary cooperation, not capitalism. Individual sovereignty, not ocholocracy.
