Individualist Anarchism is a school of thought which notices that capitalism and the state, along with other forms of groupthink, traditions and ideological faiths, are inimical to the lives of individuals.

About:

Individualist anarchists are not a homogeneous sort of folks. We likely disagree with each other as much as we will with whatever sort of terrible ideological phantasmagoria you'll try to convince us of. However, individualist anarchists, generally speaking, are people who see the state and capitalism (along with other forms of groupthink, traditions and ideological faiths) as inimical to our lives as individuals.

In our responses to this anarchistic observation about the state and capitalism, there is a long history of individualist anarchism overlapping with other schools of anarchist thought -- such as Post-Left, Green, and Insurrectionary Anarchism.

Purpose:

The goal of this sub particularly devoted to Individualist Anarchism is not to distract from these rich and meaningful overlaps with other anarchist traditions or anarchism in general. Rather, this sub is meant to facilitate discussion and education on topics related to Individualist Anarchism, and to advance the perspective that not only is anarchism compatible with individualism, but it is indeed the logical conclusion of radical individualism.

What to Post:

To that end this sub will be a place for discussion, inquiries and debate on the topics surrounding Individualist Anarchism, as well as a place to post links to literature from an Individualist Anarchist perspective.

Things I do as anarchist - do the same create another 100 me's

  1. I want to spread Tor Browser and Tails OS to as many people as possible. Also get people to use Linux. The intelligence services hate Tails OS with a passion:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tails_(operating_system)

" Der Spiegel published slides from an internal National Security Agency presentation dating to June 2012, in which the NSA deemed Tails on its own as a "major threat" to its mission and in conjunction with other privacy tools as "catastrophic"."

Snowden leaks "Tor Stinks" presentation before people claim "Tor is infiltrated by NSA!":

https://www.theguardian.com/world/interactive/2013/oct/04/tor-stinks-nsa-presentation-document

Top-secret presentation says 'We will never be able to de-anonymize all Tor users all the time' but 'with manual analysis we can de-anonymize a very small fraction of Tor users'

If everyone in UK + USA + other countries where Tor is legal use Tails, Tor, off the record messaging, VeraCrypt encrypt volumes, Signal all intelligence surveillance is completely pointless and its free! Use Tails OS with bridges is overkill even for dissidents!

Also donate to Tor and Tails OS and if technically minded run bridge relays. Every person you spread to get them spread 3 more people and donate to Tor.

Don't want ISP seeing what sites you browse? Tor browser browse web anonymously sends thru 3 relays layer of encryption removed each relay sites see exit relay IP Address totally legal in UK and USA Use with bridges (obsf4, meek-azure, snowflake) if in a country that censors Tor. Also access onion services only accessible via Tor aka "dark web." -

https://www.torproject.org

"dark web" - website list

https://dark.fail/

Ricochet Refresh - chat and share files anonymously over Tor network:

https://www.ricochetrefresh.net/

Buy things off dark web use Monero - download feather monero wallet unlike bitcoin impossible to track unlike Bitcoin

https://featherwallet.org/

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monero

" cryptocurrency which uses a blockchain with privacy-enhancing technologies to obfuscate transactions to achieve anonymity and fungibility. Observers cannot decipher addresses trading Monero, transaction amounts, address balances, or transaction histories"

"The transaction outputs, or notes, of users sending Monero are obfuscated through ring signatures, which groups a sender's outputs with other decoy outputs.[12] Encryption of transaction amounts began in 2017 with the implementation of ring confidential transactions (RingCTs).[6][13] Developers also implemented a zero-knowledge proof method, "Bulletproofs", which guarantee a transaction occurred without revealing its value.[14] Monero recipients are protected through "stealth addresses", addresses generated by users to receive funds, but untraceable to an owner by a network observer.[6] These privacy features are enforced on the network by default.[6]

Monero uses Dandelion++, a protocol which obscures the IP address of devices producing transactions. This is done through a method of transaction broadcast propagation; new transactions are initially passed to one node on Monero's peer-to-peer network, and a repeated probabilistic method is used to determine when the transaction should be sent to just one node or broadcast to many nodes in a process called flooding."

IF Feather monero wallet doesn't work search for a different monero wallet

For extra security use Tails OS sends all connections thru Tor only runs on a USB Stick buy a USB 16GB+ to install on. Follow instructions exactly don't use flash to USB tool of your choice:

https://tails.net/install/index.en.html

Watch these videos on Tails OS although slightly old:

Setup off the record messaging over Tor in Tails OS:

Checkout Tails documentation:

Use Monero on Tails will be even more untraceable send Monero over Tor:

  1. Expose mainstream economics teach lies to their students. Spread to as many people as possible especially in economics departments econ students riot. Full employment a step towards anarchy but obviously still very far away.

Learn MMT economics and spread it to as many people as possible. Spread Job Guarantee idea end all poverty in the UK. We must do ANYTHING POSSIBLE to get Job Guarantee implemented. Bernie Sanders supports idea:

https://berniesanders.com/issues/jobs-for-all/

Raising interest rates actually increases inflation. It's supposed to encourage people to save and discourage people take out loans. Loans go down deposits up. If loans go down deposits go down same amount. Cost of credit incorparated in all goods and services - higher the interest rate higher price. Keep rates at 0% permenantly. https://new-wayland.com/blog/interest-price-spiral/

The money multiplier theory taught to students is false so mechanism QE results in inflation does not happen. "The reality of how money is created today differs from the description found in some economics textbooks:" in other words economics students are lied to. Basically relationship between reserves and loans and deposits and loans function reverse way and rather than central banks choose quantity of reserves they set price of reserves - interest rates: https://www.bankofengland.co.uk/-/media/boe/files/quarterly-bulletin/2014/money-creation-in-the-modern-economy

Even Simon-Wren-Lewis agrees:

https://mainlymacro.blogspot.com/2016/03/mmt-not-so-modern.html?showComment=1458476695549#c6315301334150399714

"Forget the money multiplier. No serious economist believes in it, and why it is still in the textbooks I do not know."

QE the entire debt.

4 ) Under the current system, 5% of population kept unemployed to control inflation under the NAIRU: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NAIRU

We can use employed buffer stock instead more private sector employment for same level of inflation:

Basic explanation of what the Job Guarantee is:

https://new-wayland.com/blog/the-job-guarantee-more-money-less-tax/

Limit is real resources not money - run out of things to buy at price government sets.

"MMT works wherever it is used for the fairly obvious reason that it is a description of how a floating rate exchange system on a sovereign currency works. With the correct policy operations it is perfectly applicable to all nations.

But it is important to note that the fiscal space and the real space are separate entities. Each operates within its own sphere and the influence of the fiscal space on the real space is akin to an electrical induction circuit. Importantly there is no one-to-one relationship between the two.

As Bill's blog on world development shows, it is the real constraints on a nation that limit how prosperous it is. If you have a country with a small population and limited real resources then what it can create at full output may not be sufficient to adequately feed, house and clothe the population. No amount of financial wizardry can help sort that out and the country needs international gifts of real aid.

That is, MMT-style policies are best suited for advanced capitalist nations, not necessarily for Third World countries, because most of them face severe balance of payments constraints. Increasing aggregate demand would, for many Third World nations, simply cause a balance of payments crisis, as imports surged.

There isn't really such a thing as a balance of payments crisis in a floating rate exchange system. For those excess imports to exist at all, the saving of the local currency must occur at the same time. Otherwise the financing of the deal would have failed and the transaction would never have happened. And there would be no excess imports. The floating rate balances out the successes and failures automatically. That's its job.

Very simply imports cannot 'surge' unless the equivalent local currency savings by foreigners 'surges' at the same time. And if the savings don't surge then the exporter loses a sale and their economy shrinks as well - because there is nowhere else to export to in aggregate. Mars isn't open for business as yet.

Generally this entire misconception comes about by failing to analyse a transaction end to end"

Anarchy: The Life and Joy of Insubordination Documentary (teaser trailer)

For years, anarchism has been largely viewed through the political confines of a left and right wing paradigm. This documentary explores anarchism beyond that paradigm - not as a branch of leftism or as a euphemism for the libertarian right, but as an individualized lifestyle that rejects all forms of social control including that of civilization itself. Through interviews and conversations, this documentary takes an inside look at the ideas, thoughts, and lived experiences of post-left anarchists and other feral beings across the so-called united states.
