We Are Not What You Think

Anarchist are considered Dangerous and disastrous people. We are consider rule breakers and “problem creators”.  But are we really? Those who claim all these things about Anarchist are being biased (unfairly prejudiced for or against someone or something).

Anarchist like many other people have their good sides and their bad sides.  We are not bad just because we are Anarchist; we are bad because we are human.  Anarchists are just like every other person out there.  We can be good or bad.  We can be smart or Stupid.  We can be disastrous or helpful.  But having the title Anarchist does not give us the title bad, stupid, or disastrous.

Anarchist are defined by society as people who support an anarchy (the absence of a government or otherwise defined as chaos or mayhem.)  We are assumed to want nothing but complete freedom to rule in the way we want to and while that is somewhat true it is also very much false.

Anarchist do not necessarily believe in Anarchy and we do not believe in creating chaos and doing whatever we please without consequences.  Anarchist defined by an Anarchist would be a person who wants nothing but freedom to live without getting beat down in the streets for protesting or for not supporting the way the US. Government works.  We want to be able to be recognized as people who won’t stand for violence even though we are made out to be bombers and terrorists.

Anarchists and “The Pledge of Allegiance.”

As Anarchist we have all been asked why we don’t say the Pledge of Allegiance.  We’ve been called disrespectful and rude. We’ve been jumped on by our teachers, coworkers, family, or peers. But why do Anarchists not say the Pledge of Allegiance and does it really make them rude or disrespectful?  Anarchist do not pledge their Allegiance to anyone nor anything except to the own Anarchist groups or family’s.  They are not followers; they are leaders.  This does not make them disrespectful in any way.  Anarchists are willing to take a stand, willing to show other people that there are other ways of living life and standing up besides being apart of America.  Anarchists do not say the pledge; not because they want to be disrespectful or rude.  They don’t say it because they do not wish to follow the government and its ways.  It is not that we are not thankful for the men who died for us.  In fact we are thankful;  but we believe that the violence shouldn’t have been started in the first place.  Our government only stands for violence.  Our government only stands for their so called marketing and taxing.  Anarchists do not believe in those things.  We do not believe that saying the pledge even makes you apart of America.

“We must become bigger than we have been: more courageous, greater in spirit, larger in outlook. We must become members of a new race, overcoming petty prejudice, owing our ultimate allegiance not to nations but to our fellow men within the human community.”      Haile Selassie                                                                                                                                                                               Read more at http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/quotes/h/haileselas540921.html#0CLeopwYaZSv8ZRW.99
