Back on track :arrow: Question for those who class themselves as 'anarchists' and have a job :? How can this be? How can you pay taxes to the government ?
Is there a need to class yourself as an anarchist? Why a label? Is that itself not a contradiction of being a anarchist?
Was John Lydon not more accurate(back in 77 before he sold out and sold butter etc) When he said that it was more credible to be anarchy than have some pseudo interlectualising about being an anarchist?- As it wasn't really possible ,anyway?
Love to know from those who feel they are 'anarchists'.
It is possible to have a job and be an anarchist ...if you understand the definition of anarchism then this is clear...
Labelling yourself an anarchist is not a contradiction of anarchism...it is necessary as a result of language and perception..
things need to be labelled or we would not know what things are would we....it is just a word that sums up a persons views about the state/government ...it is necessary so that person can identify with other like minded people...it is not fake or ego-related...
of course some people label themselves anarchists who are in fact not anarchists at all...but that does not mean labelling is a contradiction of anarchism..
you could say why call a banana a banana? why not just eat it..or call it a yellow piece of fruit instead?
