"And the stars are projectors, yeah, projecting our lives down to this planet Earth." - Modest Mouse
The Anarchy Archives presents a huge collection of writings by radical activist Emma Goldman. THe anti-political theory of Anarchy has often been dragged down by associations with violent rebellion and nihilistic chaos. Emma reminds us that anarchism is really the ultimate form of personal responsibility and freedom. Something to aspire towards, not fear. From Anarchism: What It Really Stands For:
ANARCHISM:--The philosophy of a new social order based on liberty unrestricted by man-made law; the theory that all forms of government rest on violence, and are therefore wrong and harmful, as well as unnecessary.
Anarchism, then, really stands for the liberation of the human mind from the dominion of religion; the liberation of the human body from the dominion of property; liberation from the shackles and restraint of government. Anarchism stands for a social order based on the free grouping of individuals for the purpose of producing real social wealth; an order that will guarantee to every human being free access to the earth and full enjoyment of the necessities of life, according to individual desires, tastes, and inclinations.
