If Darth Vader, Kit Marlowe, Woody Allen, and somebody noble were crammed into that trans-mat thingamajig that turned Jeff Goldblum into a fly, I'm certain that the ungodly creature that emerged would most likely be something like me. My life is a never ending tug of war between the priest and the poet. The priest wants to be austere and puritanical; the poet wants to be raging mass of self-indulgence. My goal is to become rich and famous so I can do both in an odd way. Like collect a bunch of homeless people and take them all out to a fancy restaurant.
I want to become a very wealthy writer so that I can finance my goal of becoming an evil genius and killing James Bond. other than that, my purpose in life is to make people question the status quo, f**k up the mainstream, and to inevitably be destroyed by the capitalist machine.
The 10 commandments of Anarchy
taken from http://anarchydownunder.blogspot.com/2007/10/10-commandments-of-anarchy_30.html
1.Thou shall seek to destroy capitalism in all forms
This is the first and foremost greatest commandment for all Anarchists. Everything flows from this first commandment. Anarchists seek to subvert the capitalist system and capitalists themselves at any appropriate time.
2.Thou shall disengage from the system and NOT worship consumerism
Anarchists should seek to reduce their inputs into the system. This includes any form of financial input which maintains capitalism, in particular Anarchists should NOT consume goods from the multi-national, like McDonalds, KFC, Bunnings or Harvey Norman et. al. and instead support small business enterprise. Think about setting up a local co-op, and use credit unions instead of banks, or Richies supermarkets which donate profits to community groups.
3.Thou shall seek self-sufficiency
Following on from commandment 2, Anarchists should learn to make their own clothes, grow their own food, and any form of self-sufficiency. This reduces an individuals need to operate within the capitalist system. Alternatively, using trade or the barter system amongst similarly minded people.
4.Thou shall learn various skills
Following on from commandment 3, Anarchists should constantly seek to improve themselves through the development of their skill set. This includes; martial arts for self-defense, learning mechanical skills for fixing cars, plumbing or any other household repairs.
5. Thou shall go forth and multiply
Like Christians who go out and evangelize to increase their numbers, so too should an Anarchist. Learn how to network and communicate your ideas to new people. The system will never change if we only associate with like minded people.
6.Thou shall encourage freedom of speech
Anarchists should see the abolition of censorship by the media, State, and individuals. Repression of freedom establishes fear, and disengages individuals from their political people power, which only serves to increase apathy and maintaining the status quo.
7. Thou shall NOT give away personal information to authorities
Anarchists should never use programs such as Facebook or Myspace where personal information is easily available for authorities to obtain. Anarchists should be in the habit of using Proxy servers to limit the availability of their IP address being available in the ether for tracking. Unless you are asked specifically by the authorities for your personal information, don't give it away for nothing.
8. Thou shall work together for the benefit of mankind
Anarchists should endeavor to work for the greater good, rather than seeking to increase their stature. Anarchists involvement in the movement should not be for financial gain (obviously), but should also avoid the pitfalls of narcissistic self-importance by Anarchist community notoriety, which borders on self-appointed charismatic leaders. Thus, Anarchists should work for the betterment of the community, not for themselves, which, in practice includes community service. This promotes anarchy as an option for social change; Food not bombs is a good example.
9. Thou shall NOT commit anarchy while in the presence of an agent of the law
You're no good to the movement if you're caught. Check to see if police or other authoritarian is present first!
10. Thou shall be paranoid when discussing actions against capitalism
Unlawful actions against capitalism (i.e. spray painting) should not be discussed, and follows from commandment 8 that Anarchists can find themselves entrapped due to the pitfalls of egocentricism. Always assume that even your lawful actions (creating a co-op) are going to be subject to infiltrators and trolls who seek to maintain capitalism.
Somewhere in between is truth.
Law courts are corrupt.
Farmers fields grow weeds instead of produce.
There arent enough food and supplies to go around.
Yet, our rulers wear expensive suits.
They adorn themselves with extravagant jewelry.
They gorge themselves with food and they drink too much wine.
They hoard supplies and wealth even though they have more than they need.
You can call it what you like, but this is no more than stealing!
Our rulers are no better than gangsters!
They're certainly not living Process (Tao).
