Anarchism/Anti-State

Different Ways to Anarchy

There are a lot of different ways to arrive at the conclusion that the effects of the existence of the state, taken as a whole, are detrimental.
Some people see the state as their enemy because it negligently and even willfully damages the environment, and shields others from the consequences when they do the same.
Some people see the state as their enemy because it infringes on their fundamental right of property ownership.
Some people see the state as their enemy because it actively participates in the exploitation of the working class.
Some people see the state as their enemy because it abuses, and facilitates the abuse of, traditionally marginalized groups.
Some people see the state as their enemy because its entire existence is predicated on violence, and it engages in specific acts of violence against various individuals and groups.
Some people see the state as their enemy because it demands allegiance and obedience that only God is worthy of.
Some people see the state as their enemy because it criminalizes certain voluntary interactions between individuals.
All of these people are natural allies. Don’t be turned against each other by disagreements over what a voluntary society would look like. The point of a voluntary society is that each individual decides what their part looks like. And don’t be sidetracked by the poseurs and trolls who think they’re cool because they call themselves anarchists and trash talk everyone who’s the ‘wrong’ kind.
Be free.
