@icefox Oh, when you referred to ideology it reminded me of Emma Goldman's views, who you should also read. Goldman argued that anarchism isn't so much a political end-goal as it is the persistent force of the human will to be liberated from oppressive institutions. (paraphrasing) So, it's less of an ideology and more of a way of approaching political issues. The prescription is always something else, whether it be mutualism, communism, socialism, syndicalism, communalism, etc.
I went through such a traumatic experience at the embassy today. With only 3 months left until my passport expires, the Spanish embassy refuses to reissue me a passport: first because I don't have a job contract (I'm a student), then because I don't have a rental contract in my name, now because I need a notarised letter to confirm who I'm living with... What most people think as 'rude' when dealing with Spanish authorities is actually just fascist remnants
An open letter to Minister Pro.P., the Chief of Police from residents of Exarcheia about the use of #teargas by police forces: "the use of chemicals in narrow and densely populated streets constitutes a direct attack on the population, irresponsible and extremely dangerous ... at every occasion the Ministry of Citizen Protection chooses to spray us like cockroaches." https://athens.indymedia.org/post/1581114/ #exarcheia #policeviolence #ΜΠΑΤΣΟΙ-ΓΟΥΡΟΥΝΙΑ-ΔΟΛΟΦΟΝΟΙ

Ancap-ism is a symptom of exactly the problem with the American right's anti-authority posturing. They're not anti-authority; they are against the idea of anyone holding them accountable for abuse of their authority. They disguise this as being anti-authority in an obviously cynical way. They are in favor of the oldest, nastiest, most brutal forms of authority available; what they don't want is for anything to stand in the way of them mercilessly abusing it.

Amazing #documentary about how #Cuba survived the peak oil crisis after the fall of the Soviet Union, and transitioned from a highly industrial society to a sustainable one: that is, from large farms and reliance on fossil-fuel-based pesticides and fertilizers, to small #organic #farms and urban gardens. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L2TzvnRo6_c
