UPDATE 20/03/10: chapter 6 finished.2 Replies 185 weeks
UPDATE 03/02/10, new chapter added, apologies for the long pause, I've had other things to plan and write for my own page which you are more than welcome to read if you're interested in me trolling the past decade and reflecting on people whom I have pwned in the past. You will notice that I have removed a few chapters from the contents, this is because I felt that this "book" needed to be condensed a little bit. I will update soon.
UPDATE: chapters 3 and 4 written and completed, I will write two more soon.
First of all, I would like to point out that this is just an attempt, if I actually decided to write and publish a book on Anarchism, this one would only be the basis for it, not the finished product. I haven't been able to think of a title, I thought I might call it "Modernised Anarchism" but it sounds like I'm trying to create a new branch of it which I am not.
Anyway, just for the sake of authenticity I'll start with the contents page.
1. The state.
2. Technology and Anarchism.
3. The ruling class.
4. The working class of today.
5. A critique of Anarcho-Capitalism.
6. The "pipe dream" argument.
7. Narcotics and Anarchism.
8. The chaos and disorder argument.
9. Economics and Anarchism.
10. The truths of the media.
11. Marxism and Anarchism.
12. Punk rock and anarchy
13. The means.
14. The ends.
Chapter 1: The state.
If we take a hard look at today, we can see that this is NOT the best condition our society can be in. We have the potential to be masters of our own destiny, today we have a choice of what we can say, do, feel, think, and as great as those rights are, we still face one issue which some try to deny even though they know it in their hearts, we are STILL not free. We are brought into this world, shaped into a mere shell of apathy and self-pity, forced to work as wage slaves, exploited and in some cases cast out and forced to find a job which eventually ends the same way, the cycle continues until we die. And who is the culprit of this? You may ask. Who is responsible for these acts of exploitation and subjugation? The answer is: the state, the government, the bourgeiosie elite, but more specifically the state that WE in Ireland and Britain live under. We are told that there are no dictators in the current system, this is a lie. The boss at work is a dictator, he/she dictates whether or not we have a means of production, and even so it isn't really OUR means of production it is his/hers. Consider Microsoft, a big corporation, massive, who gets the credit for building our computers? Bill Gates, but he doesn't really build our computers, at the most he designs them, the engineers and programmers that nobody seems to care about are the ones responsible for those lovely computers that enhance our lives, why aren't they known? The men and women at Microsoft are perfect examples of wage slaves, they created this very computer I'm using to write this at this very moment, I thank them, not Mr. Gates. Many say that the state is neccessary. Why? What purpose do they really serve outside of their own? What interests are they trying to meet if not their own? Do you think the government care about you? We are insignificant, with Anarchism every person is significant to his/her community, you won't be rich or famous, fame, fortune and glory are all products of Capitalism, none of these things truly make us significant. The state coerces us into believing that we need them, but the truth is we don't. In the hunter-gatherer times, people lived in a society with no centralised government, they produced ONLY for themselves and managed to co-exist in a relative degree of peace, this basic concept CAN be modernised and applied to today.
Chapter 2: Technology and Anarchism.
This is where things get interesting. When Anarchism was originally concieved, technology was not quite as advanced as it is today. Today we have the aforementioned computer, we have m
