sans any form of m\a\p
from fragments of an anarchist anthropology:
against policy (a tiny manifesto):
the notion of ‘policy’ presumes a state or governing apparatus which imposes its will on others. ‘policy’ is the negation of politics; policy is by defn something concocted by some form of elite, which presumes it knows better than others how their affairs are to be conducted..
policyness.. and any form of people telling people what to do – any form of m\a\p
so.. the question becomes: what sort of social theory would actually be of interest to those who are trying to help bring about a world in which people are free to govern their own affairs?
this is what this pamphlet is mainly about.. for starters, i would say any such theory would have to begin w some initial assumptions.. not many.. probably just two.. 1\ another world is possible.. that institutions like the state, capitalism, racism, and male dominance are not inevitable.. that it would d be possible to have a world in which these things would not exist, and that we’d all be better off as a result..
act of faith.. it might turn out such a world is not possible.. but one could also make the argument that it’s this very unavailability of absolute knowledge which makes a commitment to optimism a moral imperative: since one cannot know a radically better world is not possible, are we not betraying everyone by insisting on continuing to justify, and reproduce, the mess we have today..
this is ridiculous ness.. dawn of everything (book) ness.. and..
1\ undisturbed ecosystem (common\ing) can happen (fitting with his first proposal – another world is possible)
2\ if we create a way to ground the chaos of 8b legit free people (fitting with his second proposal – no coercion.. no inevitable history.. but a bit of a stretch as his/this second proposal is talking democratic admin org.. which is better.. but not legit freedom..ie: observed/repeat-back ness.. we need imagine if we ness)
also ref’d in bs jobs from birth.. p 198
fitting with his writings of policy, police, polite ness.. et al
policy ness.. et al
