From Statist to Anarchist: A Metamorphoses Through Healing

From Statist to Anarchist: A Metamorphoses Through Healing

To become an anarchist one must undergo self-therapy. Anarchists must relive past traumas and examine their histories. This is how they morph into freedom advocates. One cannot just suddenly claim they are an anarchist, mention they studied Rothbard or  Spooner, and then hatch from the egg of Statism. Being an anarchist involves experience and knowledge…

Anarchy and Emotion: Overcoming Childism and Healing Emotional Injuries

emotional

(Note: This is Part 3 in a 3 part series covering Hard Versus Soft anarchism, the doctrine of Relationalism, and movement toward the Sensitive Society. This is my attempt to professionally reconcile the underlying truth of psychological findings with voluntaryist anarchism.) “The evolution of culture is ultimately determined by the amount of love, understanding and freedom experienced by its children…Every…
