The first of Crow Qu’appelle’s conversations with Paul Cudenec from the booklet The New Anarchy: Truth, Nature, Beauty and Withness, free to download here, which now features a striking cover by […]
New Normal Nihilism
While random acts of violence aren’t new, they have been on the rise. In many places, random acts of violence are increasing, reverting a decades long trend of decline in stranger attacks. This is the New Normal Nihilism.
Freedom, Slavery, and Magic Spells
If we are responsible and respected in the cocreation of a meaningful narrative, an open source operating system, and an open-ended world view, we are free.
Free, we challenge authority and stand our ground. We refuse to follow dictates that would do us and others harm. And we think and act outside the box of prescribed remedies.
When another England seemed possible
by Paul Cudenec I am very honoured to have contributed an article to the second issue of the beautifully-produced and highly interesting Parisian “counter-history” journal brasero which is […]
Reacting to change…
We talk a lot about radical change and why it’s needed. Sometimes, it’s useful to pause and consider what we really mean by radical change.
Eclipsed by the State: A Critical Look at Christian America
The pledge of allegiance is a similar ritual to Covid facemask wearing: it is a ritual of subservience to the state, and a ceremonial statement of belief and faith in the authorities.
Ted Kaczynski Tried to Warn Us
Will the social engineers of the future use social engineering tools such as social credit scores and social impact finance to co-create a more equitable and just world? Or are all of the buzzwords simply another mask for the next stage of colonialist-corporate-capitalism?
Anarchism = Natural Law
It is precisely because we already know true justice – in our blood, in our bones, in our guts, in our dreams – that anarchists are so revolted by the sick parody that is served up to us by the bigwigs of the state.
Activating the power of life
The first step is to see through its smokescreen of lies and distraction to grasp that the threat to our existence comes not from “the virus” but from the system using this as a device for its own corrupt ends.
On the ethics of torching vaccination centres
A flick of the lighter, the whole thing catches fire, and the silhouettes disappear into the night.
Los rebeldes volveran!
Siempre he estado orgulloso de ser anarquista. Estoy orgulloso de haber encontrado mi camino hacia el anarquismo hace unos 30 años, orgulloso de haber aprendido […]
The quest for real values takes us much deeper, into the pursuit of the ancient wisdom that can be found at the heart of the world’s religions.
THOU SHALT NOT RULE
Anarchism has only one commandment: Thou shalt not rule. This is the only barrier which anarchism offers egoism. However, anarchist-egoism grants a thousand liberties which are forbidden in today’s society.
Envisioning a Post-Western World
If the society produced in Europe through centuries of bloody violence and subsequently unleashed to ravage the entire planet can be thought of as “civilization,” an intelligent human being can only conclude that this civilization is something which must be eradicated so thoroughly as to never again be obtainable.
We need to rediscover what it means to be truly human, to cherish value over price, communal belonging over personal self-interest, honour above wealth. We need to look deep inside ourselves and search out and nurture everything that makes us noble, authentic, generous and kind.
From Fear to Loathing – How the Repression of Expression Sows the Seeds of Fascism
Over the past few years, many “progressives”, “liberals”, and even “anarchists”… have reversed their traditional stance on free speech, and come to see it as allowing for the rise of fascism. I believe the opposite is true – suppression of free speech leads to fascism.
Refuse to be afraid! Freedom is fearless love.
We must declare independence from the society of fear and declare our dependence upon the freedom of nature. A declaration that says that freedom is fearless love and that a society of fear can never know freedom.
THE TYRANNY OF THE CLOCK
Now the movement of the clock sets the tempo men’s lives – they become the servant of the concept of time which they themselves have made, and are held in fear, like Frankenstein by his own monster.
