Nothing in this blog can be believed. If you think that anything in this blog is true or factual, you'll need to verify it from another source. Do you understand? No? Then read it again, and repeat this process, until you understand that you cannot sue me for anything you read here. Also, having been sucked into taking part in the mass-murder of more than 3 million Vietnamese people on behalf of U.S. Big Business "interests", I'm as mad as a cut snake (and broke) so it might be a bit silly to try to sue me anyway...

anarchy...

Anarchy is generally a completely misunderstood political doctrine. I've been meaning to get acquainted with the basics of this doctrine for some time now, but I've bee too lazy. Since Mother Damnable sings its praises, I asked her to explain it to me:
I believe that if we were all take responsibility for our own selves and work collectively together there would be no need for laws or "leaders" That's it in a nutshell, I lived at Greenham Common at the Peace Camp and it was total Anarchy there, yet we managed to make strong and positive moves. Yes, there would need to be a massive sea change for this to happen, I suppose a start would be to admit that we're all control freaks, yet the only person we can ever really control is our own selves :>)
Hmmm... Starts thinking....

MD, for anarchy to work, wouldn't you have to have a population of honest, ethical, and responsible people - people who would not exploit the system for their own ends. Can you envisage us ever having such a population? And if so, how do we get there from here?

It's a nice idea, MD - but when too many people get involved, and the spice of life known as 'variety' kicks in, people are still going to steal and fight.
The inevitable result is why the word 'anarchy' has bad connotations.

I was gonna say F**k knows and walk away, but you deserve better so here's what I think.

I honestly believe that people do start out as honest, ethical, and responsible people, society as it stands today corrupts people.

I'm not sure that it is inevitable that people will steal, consumerism as we know it requires people to want more, but if we all shared there would be more than enough to go around.

Fighting well hey! that does seem to be part of the human condition, I suppose if two people wanted a fight they could just go out the back and get on with it, while the rest of up prepare a feast for their return :>)

As to how we get there from here challenge everything!

I'm not pretending to have all the answers but in all honesty could anything be worse than this?

Thank you for giving me a voice on you Blog Gerry.

MD, are you being a tad defensive? You needn't be. Mine's a genuine enquiry, if a touch sceptical. There are theories galore on how to better organsise (or not) the world. But these theories are mere puffs of foul smelling digestive gases if they don't come with a cogent explanation of how we get there from here.

I was not trying to put you on the spot. Rather, I had hoped that you might have some references or links to where my questions are answered.

Will I have to do my own hard yards? Bugger!!!

No I'm not defensive about Anarchy, ~ the snot nosed wannabe comment pissed me off a tad,~ but I'll get over it .

MD, I take it then that grace under fire is out of the question? We're all going to try to out-do me at spitting the dummy? Is this a cat fight I'm seeing?
I thought the Rocker's comment was reasonably valid.

Thanks for the link. I'll check it out.

Now hug and be friends! ;-)

Remeber?

"......or admit you're a mere snotty-nosed wannabe..."

I admit I only picked up on it yesterday so you may have forgotten.

Rocker I wanna apoligise now, those comments were never aimed at you, or even from me!

No worries, a girl nicknamed Rocker is not easily offended.

Gerry, are you perhaps chomping at the bit to host a cat fight?

Cool Runnings Rocker!

Chuckles, Yeah right in his wildest dreams ;>)

MD, so I said "...or admit you're a mere snotty-nosed wannabe..." didn't I say that in the context of "if you can't turn them all into toads" or some such ting? I've actually forgotten where I said that.

An who is yo callin' a dingbat, wannabe? [snickers and runs]

Rocker, me wanting to host a cat fight? Hmmm... Jelly or mud... What's you pleasure?

And I am going to come back to the anarchy topic, but first I gotta go read the link MD provided.

Isn't this fun!

I finally reached a conclusion about whether this non-cat fight should take place in jelly or mud. But in lieu of Dr. MD's sudden disappearance, you may never know, Gerry...

PS: 'pimp' is part of my word verification. Did you rig this?

Rocker, it seems MD can dish it out but not take it. Perhaps the kitchen became too hot. I don't know.

Word verification can get quite spooky at times. No I didn't rig it. That sort of synchronicity happens to me all the time.
