(en) Aurora Obreira (Aurora worker) #23 - Anarchy against Power (pt) [machine translation]

Date Tue, 12 Mar 2013 12:46:32 +0200

I'm anarchy. I give my welcome to this book. I'll bring them to explain much that life schematically waves that can be organized differently. For that I will avail myself of ideas called anarchism. Anarchism questions and denies Power and Authority. States flatly that is life possible without these abstractions. The only valid for the meaning of anarchism is the authority which employs the word as synonymous with having the expertise, experience or ability. And I can also aceptar power as synonymous with ability to bring something for the end margin of subjugation of others. ---- For you to understand that you can bring the power waive, relinquish domination, organize society without coercion or violence that exists ...

Or at least it would be possible to reduce these factors, and I, anarchy, can I be your muse, your inspiration, let us return to the days prior to appearance of the first states. Rebuilding takes us to how we lived more than 50,000 years, and is done by studies that show a good assumption that current levels societies living in flocks reproduce roughly what happened in those times. I do not want them idealizes the lives of these people. Their customs are very different depending on what the case, and often some very questionable. Nor am I proposing that we go back to the times that have passed. But understand that if they were revealed and so that way there was the introduction of power and domination, can get rid of it and organize life under the sign of freedom and utopia. Now I will show you very briefly the political structure of a so-called non-state people.

Life without State

We are a stateless band formed by some 20 or 40 people without fixed seating, without leadership, without private property. We still have some flocks that forage retains a life in this modern society, doomed to disappear. We live collecting wild foods and hunting. Our society is egalitarian calls.
The reasons are simple: we can not have properties, because we have to carry them on our shoulders. Our utensils are of materials removed from the site. Them (wood, stones, plant fibers) we get all the equipment we need. We do not need warehouses, since we live more or less for the day. The whole group knows what is necessary to survive and we just have to take them from the wild. The tools are available to anyone. The population is small and the great earth. Men and women have similar rights, even us to perform different tasks. There is no leadership, because nothing in conscience obey who has no power. The mutual support and reciprocity are the basis of our exchanges and our life insurance in bad times. If someone shows up with trends send to avoid recruitment, taxes and oppression, neglect or kill him. And if those who aspire to leadership is too strong or skilful in left and formed another band.
