(en) Czech, Not for God -- Surely it is never a matter of brushing off anarchist anti-criticism. [machine translation]

Date Sat, 9 Feb 2019 11:30:13 +0200

Anarchists and anarchists have always been at odds with the authorities and publicly pardoned. Some forms of authority have already seemed to be a zenith, yet we find that they are re-emerging and reporting their share of power. Yes, I am talking about the Church. Perhaps it will not be a bit of anarchist antiquecriptionism. ---- There is no doubt that in the final phase of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy, which was very closely intertwined with the Roman Catholic clergy, it was just anarchists who promoted atheism among the simple people, called out to go out of the church and spoke aloud about the crimes of the so-called "blacksmiths" from past times, from our present day. The fact that their words were not just an accusation of unfair circumstances is evidenced by numerous censorship interventions in the anti -kleric texts in their prints.

Attitude to the clergy from anarchist positions has been spoken countless times. Let us quote, for example, the 1900 Independent Worker's Calendar: "The Thousand Head of Clericalism with Hatred spreads through the hypocrisy armed with its feet on the life of nations and by the name of Christ's love, and by the name of the forgiveness of Christ seeks to brush the brains of the crowds, and to cast their eyes upon the eyewitnesses. Honoring the way in the footsteps of that pointing to the kingdom that is not of this world, it fights with the least sacred means of government and power on earth. "The Church was conceived as" the most blasphemous opponent of all progress ", as an authority that besides its power ambitions and enrichment at the expense of others, focuses on the brains of people who try to keep themselves in a pliable ignorance. The so-called the religious plague is the words of Johann Most (1846-1906) "of all mental illnesses by which man systematically kills his brain, no doubt the most frightening" (see article Religious Plague in Existence No. 3/2016). However, the Czech anarchists of the 19th and 20th centuries opposed the official position of the Social Democratic Party, which claimed that religion is private. Ladislav Knotek wrote: "Yes, religion is a private thing, but a religion entirely internal, which feeds on the human soul that one feels warmly, which is his sincere conviction! Does this religion have anything to do with church accessories? No! He does not! He can not! It's his counterpart. And accessories to the church are not private; it imposes obligations upon us, the sadness of which all society suffers. "It is no wonder, therefore, that" the performance of the Church is a moral duty of every one of us ". And the anarchists, in spite of all the difficulties that this meant, acted out of the churches and did not let their children baptize demonstratively. And when the anarchist movement, after the emergence of independent Czechoslovakia, retreated, at least they assembled in unbelievable associations. We can be proud of the inheritance of our thoughts, which in our society has shut down the churches on the secondary college and replaced obscurantism with scientific knowledge and atheism.

But the black-men of today are shoving the corners again. Again, they go about wealth and wealth. They received billions in church restitutions. But was it a fair process, to return to someone something that his predecessors had swept out of the sweat and blood of ordinary people in the past centuries? The ecclesiastical subordination of the executive took new forms. Cardinal Duke and President Zeman are appealing in hate speech to trade unionists and bloody immigrants. Nothing good or stupid marching against the rights of queer people, abortion and contraception. It's lyingand a completely demagogic sermon on the subject of the Istanbul Convention is just the pinnacle of everything. At the moment, for all Catholics of this kind, whose purpose is the union of church and power, as in Catholic Poland or Orthodox Russia, perhaps the greatest misfortune of becoming the Christian head of the Vatican who promotes Christ's teaching of love to one's neighbor, calls for to help refugees and oppressed people, such as those living in the occupied Palestinian territory.

It is to be noted that anarchism has influenced various religions. As a rule, they tended towards the original teachings, placing people at the first place and opposing the religious hierarchy. Even today, anarchists and anarchists do not have a problem in subordinate cases to cooperate with believers and faith groups who are not concerned with the consolidation of power and the gathering of sheep but with unconditional help to others, as a rule, to needy people.

Even today there is a tendency to link anarchism and religion. For example, we are currently engaged in getting acquainted with the connection of anarchism and Buddhism (an article is prepared for the next Existence and a separate thematic publication). The paths of freedom are inexpressible, he would say. On the other hand, most anarchists and anarchists nowadays consider similar interconnections a step backward. Clearly, this is also the position of the Anarchist Federation declared in the document "Whom (We): "... we are alien so-called religious anarchism, whether with the effects of Christianity, paganism, Buddhism or other religious directions. We may be sympathetic to his followers against the institutionalization of their faith; on the other hand, we refuse not only unnatural earthly but also extraterrestrial authorities, and prefer a rational and materialistic view of the world, which must not become a new dogmatic religion. "

Anyone today fights against Islam. This is, among other things, a good distraction from the fascist tendencies of the Church represented by Dominic Duka in our country. It would not be fair to throw all Catholics, let alone Christians in one sack. We're far away. However, let us beware when the rattlesnake of the unidentified "European values", which is considered the worst thing that happened in this geopolitical space with the participation of the Church.
