Quote
Historically, there have been slave-owning states, feudal states, monarchical states, republican states, and totalitarian states. It would be naive to suppose that they are all alike just because they are states. Yet even the most rhetorically “free” and constitutionally constrained republics in the so-called First World – which we euphemistically call “democracies” – are class institutions. They are structured by their traditions, constitutions, laws, bureaucratic and judicial institutions, police, and armies to assure that the property, profit-making, competition, capital accumulation, and the economic authority of the bourgeoisie and other privileged strata are protected. This relationship is fundamental to the modern state.
Murray Bookchin, The Unity of Ideals and Practice

Quote
Government, the legal system, school, organized religions, the media, corporations, various economic concerns… There are a number of powerful, persuasive institutions that want to control you. In order to not disintegrate, they must have at least a piece of you, if not all of you, for at least part of your life, if not all of it. They flatten and deaden. They exploit and punish. They’re never happy with the amount of power they have; they always seek to expand the breadth of their reach and the strength of their grip.

Housing Crisis PT. 1
Please watch this video. It’s deeply devastating to see so many people unable to afford a home. A PLACE TO LIVE! I cannot imagine how lonesome, terrifying, and utterly dehumanizing it would be for someone if they had no place to go.
We have the resources, yet choose to not “give handouts to people who don’t work for them.” Well, newsflash: not everyone can afford to live, regardless of how hard they work and how much effort they put into find job opportunities.
It will always be immoral to condone homelessness and starvation when there is the ability to prevent it. Keep this in mind when millions are at risk of losing their jobs, homes, lives.

I’ve Noticed Something:
Anarchists and Marxists don’t understand human nature, at all.
Marxists don’t understand that those in power will always seek to increase their power, up to & including, taking more for themselves and their friends.
Anarchists don’t understand that while humans are chaotic, we also love order and thus, will always create a government. Hell, our family units resemble small governments: parents are the rulers, and offspring (and sometimes grandparents) are the subjects.
