Y'all know how people say that joke about a hipster burning his or her tongue by drinking coffee before it was cool? I think I've heard that joke like six times in the last two weeks.

anarchy always comes back. the bourgeois godhead tries to crush anarchy with its gold thumb. but anarchy swipes back with vine whip. tentacool spins in circles on a record turntable and splashes its victims eyes with venemoth's seed. anarchy is served on a plate with fries and gives the godhead heartburn approximately every three days. anarchy is a goblin that sneaks up behind a wizard and pulls the wool over its eyes. anarchy is the wooly bully (messiah), both fully man and fully lamb.

OH boy political discussions sure are fun!

It is true, Anarchy (or at least an anarchist/socialist movement) has worked in some parts of the world. There is a place in Sweden i believe that was a small village for about 30 or 40 years that was pure Anarchy where everyone helped and worked and etc. But then meth headed bikers from out of town came in and took over (by force of course) and ****ed everything up. It's unfortunate but it is true. Not everything (or everyone) in life is perfect, and like Due 07 said himself, Outside influence causes anarchy to collapse. Well thats all it takes really, just one person or one thing to break something down.

The reality is that there will always be someone who wants more. Or take advantage of any given situation. Take the "occupy" movement for example, sure there were pleanty of individuals on one agenda (against corporate greed- pretty broad right?) and there were homeless junkies walking off the street for a free place to crash. OH well

I always seem to get into this same debate with people every time this kind of argument comes up. I say things, then someone else says "man that isn't true" and then I say more stuff and instead of refuting me people just go "man it sure is sad that you are so brainwashed by the popular views of the capitalist/hierarchical/class-based systems."

Please move on from this whole idea that I think anarchy is nothing but structurelessness. I understand that. Anarchy isn't just not having someone in charge. I'm not 14 anymore.

I just don't think that anything an anarchistic society has ever done was worth a damn, and that cherry-picked propaganda about how magical some anarchist organizations are isn't going to convince me otherwise. I don't believe in working towards some magical visionary pseudo-socialist anarchistic collective in the future when there are systems that can get clear results.

For once I'd like to talk about anarchy without some loser telling me I just don't get the way things work and I'm wrong about everything. I'd love a reasonable discussion where my lack of knowledge of a system I think is stupid isn't seen as me being a brainwashed capitalist. I want you to look at me as a crazy cynical old man who just doesn't give a damn anymore about silly kids telling me how the world works. That's the angle you should come at me with.

So how exactly is it that people think anarchy is awesome when it takes so little effort to wreck everything people worked on for over 40 years? Like how hard do you have to cognitive dissonance your brain into not seeing how blindingly useless a system as fragile as that is?

"Go ahead, argue that science and mathematics would progress without a structured society."

I'm terribly sorry for misunderstanding you, Mr. Axe, but that statement sure implies that anarchism is structureless. \_(ツ)_/
