"[National anarchism's] wanton intellectual cannibalism shows that groupuscular fascism poses a clear danger, particularly for ecological subcultures whose values are profoundly different from the ecological agenda mooted by the far right. The increasing ability of groupuscules like the [national anarchists] to absorb and mirror left-wing and environmental causes, effortlessly refracting their concerns about globalization and liberal democracy through their own antisemitic and racist framework, creates a dangerous conflation between ecology and anti-immigration as a way of restoring the ‘organic balance’ of nature... anarchist, ecological and global justice movements need to remain on their guard in order to ensure that the revolution will not be national-Bolshevized."
oh, so you think you’ve got some kind of monopoly on definition of anarchism? gimme a break!
Authoritarian culture values and radical anti-authoritarianism can’t be squared. Pointing out this fact does not mean one claims a monopoly on the definition of anarchism.
You should add a laugh track to this.
Nationalism is the opposite of anarchism. Nationalism = hierarchy. Capitalism is also the opposite of anarchism.
Smash Divisions, why would it be opposite? Do you even know what nation means? (What is born of, race of people). Anarchism is against the state, not against nations. You would not know what anarchism was if it slapped you in the face.
Nationalism doesn’t mean a hierarchy, what type of crap is that?
Nation: A large aggregate of people united by common descent, history, culture, or language, inhabiting a particular country or territory.
Anarchy: Absence of government and absolute freedom of the individual, regarded as a political ideal.
These things do not oppose each other. A state, or ‘nation state’, is opposing anarchy. In fact, they actually work well together. People are united through and loyal to their nation, therefore making anarchy more likely to succeed as there would be more community cohesion.
Please, tell me where I’m wrong.
Yeah, I’m not a huge fan of the NA’s, but the idea that nationalism and anarchism is antithetical suggests 1. a fundamental misunderstanding of “nationalism,” 2. An unfamiliarity with the history of the anarchist movement. See: Bakunin.
A fundamental misunderstanding or a radical disagreement?
I would have thought that absolute freedom includes freedom of movement regardless of race or origin though…
