What are the 3 Pillars of Anarchy? Intro to the Blog and the Pillars

In this 3 part opening series, I would like to explore what I am calling "The 3 Pillars of Anarchy." 

Those pillars are Liberty, Ethics (consideration based), and Education. 

It is my belief that these 3 pillars are what will allow true anarchy to flourish, and it will serve to convince others that it is a superior political philosophy. And even if we don't always convert people to our way of thinking, all or nothing, if we can do as the Joker once said ("introduce a little anarchy..."), then we will have done our job for the day. 

 

In the coming days, I will upload my thoughts on these three pillars, illustrating what they entail, and hopefully begin the process of productive dialogue. 

 

Also, as exposure and content grows, I would also like to begin a series of discussions entitled "Is anarchy compatible with...." This series is designed to answer that question, with subjects ranging from various religions (Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, etc...), social movements (Feminism and other minority based-movements, Trans-Humanism, different kinds of philosophy, etc...) and political philosophies (Liberalism, Socialism, Communism, Conservatism, Minarchism, etc...) 

Ideally, if the blog does half-way decent, I may move into other media as a means to get that discussion going as well, such as through podcasts. 

 

In any case, let's get educated!
