Punk Politics #69

Way too often in the underground there’s questions going around about whether or not Anarchism is the answer to societal ills. Being that Anarchism is the only moral and responsible answer to the boots on our necks the questions are of economics and how to achieve the goal.

There are a few economic options. There’s anarcho syndicalism which is essentially socialist anarchism as the workers run production and all capital is shared. There’s anarcho primitivism which would be an agrian and crafted goods system. Then there’s AnCap which even I’m not high enough to think is a good idea.

To achieve this requires revolution. That revolution can either be peaceful through the means of street activism to change politics beginning in local municipalities all the way up to federal. Or it can be violent. Both are valid options that carry a lot of risk and work. Of course the 2 can also be blended in various ways.

#punkvoter update. Okay we’re about a year out from the election. Couple things. None of these assholes are gonna save us. It is important to leverage our power of the ballot box to at least attempt to get the least problematic individuals into the government structure. I’m not gonna tell you how to vote but I will tell you what I think. We should vote. And we shouldn’t keep voting for these major parties. It isn’t hopeless. It’s a matter of taking their power. We the people gave it to them which means it’s our to transfer to whomever we wish. Even if you can’t stomach any presidential options there are ballot measures that matter and you can just pick a 3rd party option as a middle finger to the establishment or write in. To spread awareness we have been making #punkvoter memes. Feel free to steal and post them. We need to remember that we are the power. The government is paid by is which makes them our employees.
