The Tree of anarchy, or Anarchy explained to children
Anarchy is a philosophical system, which determines a whole way of thinking and understanding live different from the rest of nature and political systems because of its implementation are derived behaviors that determine how interact and how to use the environment.
Like a tree anarchy clings to the soil in the world trying to grow up looking for the sun of reason and down the deep water of human desires. Anarchy has:
Roots that feed it: Self Management, Direct Action, Mutual Support
The roots sink to feed, as could not be otherwise, in man and nature, our world. Man is a social being and should relate to other men and with nature to survive and develop. But in the multitude of relationships that exist anarchy is based on three simple principles that guide it.
Self-management or independence, in which the person recognizes his own will and do for itself, and help their peers to make theirs also accepting their help. This principle is in opposition to patronage or dependence in which a person must do the will of another, and is forced if want get something inaccessible by itself, like food. The one is voluntary, the other is obligatory.
There is not always agreement among people. Direct Action proposes direct dialogue between affected disagreements. And even if there is no agreement are their similar and equal those involved in the dispute. This is opposed to indirect or deferred action on one or more intermediaries arbitrate disputes. And when you accept arbitration you accept its authority, with the many implications, such as the establishment of laws, judges and police officers, with corruption and abuse that implies. So anarchists are anti-authoritarian.
Mutual support, or solidarity. Clearly get developed in a social and natural environment requires some agreement among people. For convenience and conviction it is acted for other individuals fulfill their goals and this are committed to helping in performing our own, must be reciprocal. This is in contrast to trade in which a person obtains property only if paid or exchanged, or to charity, in which a person receives only helps the giver will raise without common goals, or slavery in which a person it is alowed to live in exchange for services provided to the master.
Trunk that sustains and gives strength: Assembly and Collective
Of these three principles common trunk arises, associations, also called collective or just groups, formed by equal persons, in order to meet their particular objectives and thereby defining collective goals.
Creating a meeting point, discussion and decision-making among equals, the assemblies are formed. In they are taken by majority or consensus the agreements, as opposed to the councils, in which a select few make agreements, or headship where it is only one person who makes decisions.
Branches that organize: Commune, Cooperative and Unions. Federations
Organized groups in assemblies, groups or groups emerge specializations.
For man living it is need materials from environment, which involves work. This work may be as employee, working for one or more masters, or for themselves, working on their own.
- If you are self-employed, for themselves, it is form cooperatives, following the assembleary principles.
- If you work for one or more masters the group comes together to protect their aggression and exploitation attempts is called union. His goal is to conquer the mean of production and cooperativize.
Communes are the colloquial name of traditional clusters formed for the management of housing, living environment, connectedness and supplies.
And when the strength, the will and the organization are sufficient, voluntary groups come together in federations of autonomous groups, assembly, self-managed, practicing solidarity and direct action to address their problems and achieve common goals among all.
What about us? WE ARE THE LEAVES WHY TREE BREATHE.
Anarchy is disorder: for those who do not know it organization.
Anarchy is chaos: for those who want to impose to other people.
Anarchy is violence: for those who see their privileges threatened.
Anarchy is natural harmony for those who live their principles.
Anarchy is responsible for those who are committed to the people and their projects.
Anarchy is freedom for those who respect their peers.
The TARCOTECA is Anarchy
