Don’t Tread On Media Interviews Davi Barker

Josh LeCash from Don’t Tread on Media reached out to me for an interview after taking an interest in a number of articles here on Daily Anarchist, especially You Are A Slave by Daniel Hawkins. He wanted to know, “Is Anarchy The Answer?” I would say, yes. JoshLeCash focuses primarily on conspiracies, but saw a confluence with anarchists because, as he puts it, “Most conspiracies are rooted in the concept of those in power withholding or manipulating information being consumed by those without power.” Can’t argue there.

UKRAINEMany people would be interested to know if there is anarchy in the Ukraine. Anarchy can be wherever you want it to be, because anarchy cannot be limited by State boundaries. But, is there an anarchist movement in the Ukraine?

Marketing Voluntaryism

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012   Submitted by Davi Barker

I recently had some custom Voluntaryist lapel pins made. I designed a 1″ black and gold AnCap flag pin, and a 1.5″ Voluntaryist “V” pin, with the Daily Anarchist motto around the rim, “Building a Voluntary Society… Without Permission.” You can get the pins at www.ShinyBadges.com.

Last week I had my first opportunity to wear one to a formal dinner, pinned to the lapel of my coat, similar yet entirely different from the flag pins that the sociocrats wear. The pin generated a lot of questions and a lot of conversations at the dinner and I want to share my experience.

Why Muslim Fundamentalists Should Embrace Voluntaryist Anarchy

Saturday, July 14th, 2012   Submitted by Davi Barker

I want to be clear from the outset what I mean by “fundamentalists.” I’m not talking about muslims engaged in suicide bombing, plane hijacking, church burning, cartoonist murdering or teddy bear rioting. Those people have departed from any semblance of what I can call islam. So, for the sake of distinction making let’s call them “extremists.” I’m talking about a rigorously literal and conservative interpretation of islam which includes movements to establish a new Caliphate and an emphasis on end times prophecies. These are the type of fundamentalists that join islamic political parties, or separatist movements. And despite what the fear mongers pretend, very few of these fundamentalists have any interest in imposing islamic law on America. They’re far more concerned with countries like Saudi Arabia, which they don’t view as legitimate in any sense. At most they’d like America to stop thwarting their efforts in their own lands.

Putting all that aside, to explain why muslim fundamentalists should embrace voluntaryist anarchy we’ve got to start with some basic review of these two areas of islamic scholarship, the Caliphate and end times prophecies. This argument is primarily written for the fundamentalists themselves, but I’ll try to explain it in terms accessible to a general audience.

A Common Dispute with Left Anarchists

Tuesday, June 5th, 2012   Submitted by Wendy McElroy

One of the most common disputes I have with left anarchists is whether 19th century individualist anarchists were really socialists. On the surface, it is not absurd to argue that such proto-libertarians as Benjamin Tucker are best classified within the socialist tradition rather than the libertarian one. They generally accepted the labor theory of value and, so, rejected stock trappings of capitalism. For example, Tucker, William Greene, Ezra Heywood and Josiah Warren considered the charging of interest on money to be an act of usury or theft.
