But as governments in turn are the negations of individuals or of the people, aanarchist is reasonable that the latter, waking up to essential truths, should gradually come to feel a greater horror at its own annihilation than that of its masters.

The World’s First Anarchist Manifesto

Return to Book Page. Now, if dispensing with government is, on the one hand, the establishment of order, and, on the other, the enshrinement of anarchy, then order and anarchy go hand in hand. There is not and cannot be a social contract, for one thing because society is not an artificial construct, nor a scientific fact, nor a mechanical combination; society is a providential and indestructible phenomenon.

The only way one achieves trust is a society in which there is no division between citizens and watchers, and for that reason the responsibility to work well with one another is thrust back onto the citizens.

Selflessness is slavery, shabbiness wail abjection; it is king, government, tyranny, mourning and civil war. Bellegarrigue was a French individualist anarchist. Muhammad Shemyal Nisar rated it liked it Jul 27, However, the authorities are sheep as well, since they are also citizens and are not given by nature any greater wisdom or ability.

Likewise, all of these parties which can be seen swarming over the surface of the country the way that foam floats upon a boiling liquid have not declared war on one another because of any doctrinal differences, but precisely because of their common aspiration to power. Morality protects life and property, including of those who by virtue of possessing both will do untold damage to the citizens, the environment, and the public goodwill.


But refraining from attacking or defending the government so as to render civil war impossible is nothing short of paying it no heed, tossing it on to the dung heap and dispensing with it in order to lay the foundations of social order.

On which grounds I am correct in saying that the only social fact is the natural fact, the individual, the self. Mehmet Orhan rated it really liked it Jul 04, There is no possibility of the former’s not feeling its favour, nor of the latter’s not being persecuted. And, faced with that question, not one knows what I meant to say, every single one disclaims responsibility for what has occurred and the wretchedness has drawn no response from anybody.

It does not consider the finer points of individual cases, but creates rigid abstract rules which inevitably come into conflict. Like all animals with social habits, men are by nature social. Because, although he attends neither chapel, church nor synagogue, the non- attender must, thanks to the meddling of the powers-that-be, bear the costs of chapel, church and synagogue.

Yet this is the savage monstrosity that goes by the name of the collective interest! Herkes bi’ merak etse. In other words, once the government is in place, the favouritism that is the basis of privilege and which provokes division, spawns antagonism and civil strife becomes inevitable. Society is the inescapable consequence of the aggregation of individuals; likewise the collective interest a providential and inevitable consequence of the aggregation of personal interests.

What I do know is that I can boldly argue my case against all of the White and Red governmentalist prose of past, present and future. The first Anarchist manifesto, written indeclares “Anarchy is order, whereas government is civil war” and argues with language as sharp even now as any against the delusion that voting does any good for anyone but politicians and puts the case that the established power structure is a gigantic crime against humanity.


What do I care for what was done before me? Well, you were mistaken. If a party were to cease to be political, it would cease being a party and would melt back into the people, which is to say, into the realm of interests, production, industrial pursuits and intercourse.

Anarchy is an ancient word, but, for us that word articulates a modem notion, or rather, a modern interest, the idea being daughter to the interest. Thus, France, being self-organised along municipal lines, she is also democratically self- organised.

And you are reconciled with them? Those men use the force that you have bestowed upon them; and they use it against you.

Because commerce is stunted by the banks’ monopoly – to which the powers-that- be hold the key — and tightly restricted by the slip knot of stultifying regulation – more of the handiwork of the powers-that-be. Public All can see and participate is translation. That very fact alone quickens the seed of civil war, because the government, resplendent in its authority, cannot possibly act with regard to its adversaries the way it does with regard to its supporters.

On the one hand I watch the man whose head is swathed in the aura of supreme power and whose hands clutch the sceptre consecrated by that investiture, qnarchist to governmental journalism, to a journalism that owes its might anqrchist the gold raised by taxation and to the army’s steel. When this happens, those who can trust each other exclude those who are irresponsible, forcing them to create their own social group to ensure their survival.

I am better than you and yet you oppress me.
