The commonplace nature of radicalism

When you think about it, radical sentiments aren’t a rarity. How often have you heard these phrases?

“Power corrupts.”

“Work sucks.”

“Fuck the police.”

“The rich get richer and the poor get poorer.”

These are all the same sentiments held by anarchists and like-minded radicals. Anarchists aren’t as rare as they are because people disagree with the underlying ideas, but rather because people don’t know what anarchy is, nor do they realize how real of a possibility it is. Naturally, anarchists should make an effort to correct this.

Here you can see the assorted musings of a philosophically-inclined, theoretically eclectic anarchist. My blog: a grab bag of hopefully interesting rants, raves, and various other things.

    Probably not news to you, but something I tend to harp on because I think it’s important: “radical” is from the latin word, “radix,” meaning “root,” and so a radical idea is one that gets right down to the root of the issue. 🙂

    Totally loving your blog so far. Keep up the good work.

    We may not live in the same bioregion, but I would consider you an ally. 🙂
