At Independent Political Report, our mission is to post articles about independents or alternate parties. From time to time, however, an interesting article comes around regarding the philosophy of libertarianism or anarchy, both of which are topics which many of our readers have interest in. This thread is dedicated to those articles.
Feel free to post something in comments that you may find that fall into the categories of small “l” libertarianism, or anarchy. This is also a good thread for those discussions about anarchy that keep showing up on other threads, which aren’t related to the topic.
I’ll end intro to the thread with some words about anarchy.
anarchy Pronunciation: /ˈanəki/
Absence of government and absolute freedom of the individual, regarded as a political ideal.
Some interesting quotes about anarchy:
“Anarchy is the only slight glimmer of hope.”
― Mick Jagger
“People have only as much liberty as they have the intelligence to want and the courage to take.”
― Emma Goldman
“Our masters have not heard the people’s voice for generations and it is much, much louder than they care to remember.”
― Alan Moore, V for Vendetta
“Anarchism is founded on the observation that since few men are wise enough to rule themselves, even fewer are wise enough to rule others.”
― Edward Abbey
“That is what I have always understood to be the essence of anarchism: the conviction that the burden of proof has to be placed on authority, and that it should be dismantled if that burden cannot be met.”
― Noam Chomsky
