Our movement is broken. This statement might seem outrageous to some, but what am I supposed to say when I see anarchists of different stripes wishing death upon eachother with the utmost seriousness? That the movement of liberty is progressing swimmingly without a need for concern or worry? I would be lying to you if I said the movement as it is, right now, has a reasonable chance of progressing forward at a reasonable pace. Our movement must find common ground if it is to survive the assault, the constant barrage emanating from every form of our mortal enemy, the state. This common ground must be the core of our movement moving forward for it permeates all of our ideologies and resides within them as long as these ideologies are anarchist in their nature.
Unfortunately, this plentiful common ground has not been discovered even though it is in abundance...even though it is right in front of us and has been as such this entire time. This common ground has been successfully alluded from the vision of our movement and caused it Our movement is broken. This statement might seem outrageous to some, but what am I supposed to say when I see anarchists of different stripes wishing death upon each to degenerate into the mess that is the moment today. The movement has succumbed to the divisive political manipulations of the eternal parasite, the statist. This submission of ourselves and therefore our movement to the debilitating forces of division must cease as this is a momentous obstacle in our path to success. This division has been sowed into the movement of anarchy through agents of the state apparatus. These agents do not know they are serving the state, they genuinely believe that their division of the anarchist movement will somehow bring good fortune upon it. It won't.
How can we intensify the struggle if out movement is broken and indulging itself in rabid infighting? We simply cannot, this is why the state opposes the ideological unification of the anarchist cause, for if we were to unite we could present an organized front against statist oppression. They are unwitting agents of the state, they are acting in the interest of the state whether they choose to acknowledge their division of the movement as such or not. The divisions currently present in the anarchist movement are merely the results of the manipulations of these statist agents, these statist agents must be recognized as what they really are...useful idiots for the statist cause.
We all hold a respect for the ideological nature of man for we are all anarchists, our ideologies are merely different branches of the same ideological tree. The plentiful common ground that lies between the many forms of anarchist thought shall no longer be subject to being alluded from our movement's vision, impeding our ability to succeed. This common ground must be strengthened and formed into a spirit of cooperation towards our single goal that unites us. The goal of a achieving liberation from state oppression...the goal of anarchy. We must Unite to form a new, reinvigorated movement based around this common cause we all share if we are to progress the movement. No longer shall we be subject to the rabid infighting that has plagued us for so long and caused our movement to be slowly and continuously dragged into the dark depths of political obscurity.
We must resist the onslaught of the statist and without a united front to present our movement, we will be unable to resist and therefore will be subject to extensive degradation and ridicule and with it the last chance of humanities liberation from the eternal parasite that has humanity in its wretched grip, leeched of its progress and dragged it into the dark depths of world war, financial ruin, and ethical obliteration will be politically annihilated. We shall not let this happen, we must frustrate the devolution of our movement by binding together like brothers in arms. Divided we are vulnerable and weak while united together in a common cause we are unbreakable, we are strong, we are invulnerable.
The movement must hasten its pace in the wielding of its united political power to destroy the enemy of freedom that is statism for if we succumb to these decisions present amongst us and allow them to deepen, grow and intensify then our movement will be doomed not to slow progress but to utter political obliteration. We will not allow the statist to divide us, we will resist, we will overcome, and we will win!
Mr. Blane Tulloch
"Whoever will be free must make himself free. Freedom is no fairy gift fall into a man's lap. What is freedom? To have the will to be responsible for one's self."
What is an Anarchist? That is a question that most people will either be confused or quick to answer depending on who they are, but will mostly fail to answer correctly. “Anarchists are a bunch of violent thugs that want chaos and disorder.” “Anarchists are a bunch of immature kids that need to respect their superiors.” And the list goes on with the many answers that fail to correctly define who are Anarchists or what Anarchism is.
The main cause of this failure is mainly due to groups of individuals that wear the title of Anarchist like a badge of honor but shamefully act in ways that go against Anarchist principles. For years, they have had the spotlight placed on them on the subject of Anarchism and have acted like clowns and criminals to everyone they meet. These individuals are what we call “Fake-Anarchists” and have no place in the subject of Anarchism.
To ensure they no longer taint the title of Anarchist like the wolves in sheep’s clothing that they are, we must correctly define who Anarchists are, and who Anarchists are not. Anarchists support the abolition of government and do not support any form of government no matter how big or small. Anarchists believe in free-speech and do not censor anyone. Anarchists believe in personal-responsibility along with self-reliance and do not shy away from it. Anarchists believe in self-defense, and do not violently aggress on others. Anarchists believe in gun rights, and do not support gun-control or any regulation on firearms. Anarchists put freedom and individualism first, and do not put it behind things such as collectivism, identitarianism, intersectionality, or anything that can be used to divide people or oppress the individual. These are the core principles of Anarchism and those that adhere to them are Anarchists, but those that don’t and still call themselves Anarchists are Fake-Anarchists.
This is the definition that the public deserves to hear, but has been lied to by Fake-Anarchists and others alike along with the government, politicians, and authoritarians amplifying the voices of these people. Every time they do something violent or barbarous to supposedly “further Anarchism”, politicians and authoritarians will quickly come in and say “These people are violent thugs that must be stopped, so give me your rights and liberties so you can be safe from them.” Worst yet, most of these Fake-Anarchists will go as far as to befriend with these exact same, if not, similar authoritarians that they claim to hate so much, under the guise of “Left-Wing or Right-Wing Unity.” Instead of uniting with other Anarchist (regardless of economics and social beliefs) in the name of abolishing the state, they resort to fighting for authoritarians and people who undermine their Anarchist beliefs and some do so with a smile on their face. This will only result in them either becoming the authoritarians that they have warned others about and forget what Anarchism even is or being removed, excluded, or, in some extreme cases, killed for no longer being needed by the authoritarians, like the useful idiots that they always were. The action of these Fake-Anarchists only create the tools and conditions that authoritarians and politicians need to take people’s rights and liberties away. In every way, Fake-Anarchists are only counter-productive to creating a truly free society, and only will lead to more authoritarianism, disorder, and suffering.
If one wants a free society, one must be willing to adopt the true principle of Anarchism and discard the ones that Fake-Anarchists have perpetuated for decades. And every time the Fake-Anarchists make themselves the spokesperson of Anarchism, they must be called out for their inconsistencies and ignored. Then, and only then, can we finally give the public the correct definition and principles of Anarchism that they deserve to hear, and continue to further Anarchist thought.
Among the anarchists who are collectivist and believe in the class theory, intersectionality theory has quickly become popular. This likely happened because of the similarities between the proletariat/bourgeoisie dichotomy they espouse and the many oppressed/oppressor dichotomies included in intersectionality. The similarities include their collectivist nature, the idea of supporting group consciousness, and the fundamental basis being the idea that any difference between people must be based upon oppressive, hierarchical relationships. The support for these ideas, in many ways, holds back anarchism.
Trying to end a variety of supposed oppressive hierarchies distracts anarchists from the only true cause of oppression, coercive entities like the state. This is especially visible when a person who calls themselves an anarchist supports state action to end what they see as oppression. The sheer number of hierarchies that anarchists who believe in intersectionality are trying to end, makes it nearly impossible to put in any effort towards advancing anarchism; even if such efforts occur they will be diluted by attempts to aim towards other goals.
Intersectional identity politics is inherently divisive. The separation of people into levels of privilege leads to arguments about how much privilege different groups have, what types of groups exist, and which groups should be helped in what ways. These types of arguments have lead to infighting, not meaningful debate, because intersectionality theory is fundamentally incorrect. Just as it divides the focus of an individual anarchist, it separates the focus of groups of anarchists leading to different groups attempting to end different hierarchies.
The foundation of intersectionality is the idea that some sort of inequality or poor treatment implies the existence of an oppressive hierarchy. The problem with this is that an oppressive hierarchy can only exist through violent coercion or the threat of it. The second major problem is intersectionality’s collectivist nature. This makes intersectionality inherently authoritarian since collectivism disregards the individual in any case of collective benefits. The collectivist nature also leads to the problem of which groups to consider, the consistent answer would to consider all of them but if this is chosen then eventually every individual would be in a different category destroying collectivism and this is far too time-consuming to be worthwhile.
Intersectionality also pushes those who might be interested in anarchism away from it out of fear of being deemed a believer in wrong think, or “too privileged” to speak on specific matters. Those who argue for it depend on tactics like ostracism if one does not believe in intersectionality theory. Sometimes, they’ll even use it on those that slightly disagrees with what the group believes. This creates a massive echo chamber where only one view and opinion exist amongst the group of anarchist, and those that go against it are quickly kicked out, censored, or even physically attacked. These are not the action of anarchist, but the actions of the exact same authoritarians and statist that anarchists hate so much.
If anarchism were to succeed in the way a believer in intersectionality would want, the society would be totalitarian as that is the only way to end nonexistent or completely justified privileges. Individuals would have to bow down to the will of the collective, which in this case would be ‘embodied’ in those who decide what is and isn't just in the treatment of the groups they deem important. This means that the success of anarchism would lead to the creation of a totalitarian state. This puts the nail in the coffin for the idea of mixing intersectional social justice with anarchism. To truly continue furthering anarchism, and ensuring the abolition of the state, we must throw aside intersectionality theory for only creates division, favoritism, and inequality.
All knowledge begins with the senses, proceeds then to the understanding, and ends with reason. There is nothing higher than reason.
Love, relationships and egoism.
I’ve been in a relationship for a long time now and this is my secret to maintaining it as long as I have.
Don't base your relationships with others on love alone. Love is a feeling that comes and goes, just like happiness. Any relationship based on feelings alone will fail because feelings are not constant. I guarantee when hard times come, these feelings will not be constant. They will be tested. Sometimes they’ll disappear temporarily; all feelings do.
People often go on to make the mistake of quickly leaving each other. When this happens, it’s because people make the mistake of basing all of their decisions on how they feel. They do not understand the true nature of humans. They forget to take a step back and see the benefits of their relationship in all its aspects as if feeling a certain something was the only measure of importance a relationship should be weighed by.
Foolish people are to think this way! But how could you blame them we are all victims of the philosophy of romanticism. Within our minds as small children we have been raised to believe that love, family and all relationships should be a perfect fairy tale. Full of never ending 24 hr a day circles of love that never die or fade into the distant if even for a moment.
Instead of feelings, your relationships should be based on fulfilling each other's self-interest. Love and trust are side effects that only come when you fulfill each other's self-interest. If both parties do not have their self-interest fulfilled they have no reason to be together. They have no reason to care.
If you are sure to satisfy the self-interest of your partner the relationship will last. That is only if your partner can correctly communicate to you what it is they want. You also must be a good listener. Know what your partner wants, satisfy their needs, wants and desires and you should receive the same. It is in your partner's self interest to give you what you want if they wish to continue to receive what it is they want from you.
Every relationship is based on self-interest; this is the truth and only those willing to realize this fact will be the ones who are successful in all relationships. Those who don't understand this, and what I’ve said, will be the first ones to call me a fool. This is because they are still blinded by the lie of altruism. There is no such thing as a selfless act. Every action to help another is guided by self interest no matter how big or small the action. There is always a self interest at play. Whether it be direct or indirect, conscious or unconscious. The only way to remove the self interest is to remove yourself from the equation. And to remove yourself is to not exist in the transaction.
Give your partner what they want and you will get what you want. Your appreciation for them and their appreciation for you will both grow. Feelings of love will come and go. Bursts of happiness will come about and go. All because you are fulfilling each other's self-interest. This is the key to a successful relationship.
The same is for every relationship you ever had in your life. People do not do things for each other simply for no other reason than “just because”. Whether this be a business relationship, friendship, your lover or the relationship between you and your parents or extended family. Everyone with every action they engage in is motivated by self interest even if the subject and subjectee is not consciously aware of it.
When you love your wife you expect to be loved back. You give praise and admiration and expect it in return. Rightfully so you should. How long would you stay with your lover if they beat you and or treated you like complete shit in exchange for your warm love you gave them on the daily? You would not stay. It is not in your self interest to stay! That is assuming you do not enjoy being abused. You would cry for a breakup! What this means is that even if you are not consciously aware of the fact that you want appreciation from your lover back while giving them your warm heartedness it is still the truth.
You love because you expect to be loved in return. And when your lover dies one day you will be crying “why must they leave me so soon!” ah and there it is again. Your self interest, you cry and mourn their death not only because they are dead. But also because you live without their company forever more now. There is nothing wrong with this. It does not mean you are a bad person.
There is no such thing as a bad person. Individuals are guided by their self interest and it is that in which your ethics derive from. What is good is ultimately good for you. And it is only rational to do what is in your interest. However that's to be discussed another time.
You realizing that we are all guided by self interest will improve all your relationships. You accepting this fact will bring your interpersonal communication skills to a higher level which will in turn increase the overall level of satisfaction and well being of yourself and all those who accompany you as you satisfy the desires of yourself and all those around you simultaneously. Our self interest makes the world go round. It leads you to do great things for many people and leaves you satisfied as well.
If you wish to become the world's greatest communicator. You must be able to identify the self interest of everyone you come across. If you can accomplish this you will find yourself with many loyal friends and loved ones who truly care and will fight for you. It is in the self interest of us all to care for each other as humans are indeed social animals. The survival of the self depends on the help and security others give you. No one ever did anything great completely alone. The next time someone says “love makes the world go round” correct them. Selfishness makes the world go round.
No authority above the individual.

Be sure to check out the podcast concerning the drop here.
Several weeks ago, a small band of anarchists, and those who held a general dislike for the identity politics of the left initiated an investigation involving potentially illicit activity from left-anarchist Youtubers and Discord users.
They faced multiple individuals - some peers and some suspects - who rebuked them, subjected them to ridicule, and laughed off any and all accusations they had posited. These individuals, whether friend or foe, acted in order to minnow out any spies in their midst. But our band of investigators pressed on, the impetus for their resolve being the removal of deplorables from their community.
What they have uncovered was shocking, and revolting.
Now, what would be more fitting to begin with, than the unforgivable? Our journey into the depraved is initiated with two faces rather familiar: Finnish Bolshevik and Thought Slime. Our investigators discovered a myriad of conversations assisting in the construction of an irrefutable case against these two. Both are - as our researchers have found - pedophiles, and have openly admitted to this, despite initial attempts to have this truth concealed from the public. These men, however, not only have failed to cover this deplorable inclination, but have taken their scandalous dealings a step further: they have engaged in public text-based roleplay of the rape and murder of a child.
Of course, the staff couldn’t allow this to leak, so what do they do? The only logical thing of course: they forbid the discussion of this fantasy/roleplay. Yet, not once do they so much as criticise these two for being so morally bankrupt as to fantasize about the rape and killing of a child. Not once is there a case of the banning of users for support of this purely for the sake of it being immoral. No, they restrict the discussion of this scandal simply because it would tarnish the reputation of the server.
But of course, as of all things of this nature, it doesn’t cease there. Only a select few of the members of this discord spoke out against these actions. The overwhelming majority expressed adamant support for these two. Some criticized them for “doing it in public,” as if it would somehow be justified if this had been done privately.
But the story worsens. We have recently discovered that members on Finbol’s server have been sharing and trading child pornography. This does not simply mean loli (though that would be egregious in its own right,) but legitimate, live action, child pornography. There is no excuse for this. There is no explanation. Not only has there been no action taken against these members, but it has been condoned. In the words of a Discord user by the profile name of Gumball the Soviet, “Daily reminder that child rape is a revolutionary act and we should support NAMBLA against the imperialism propagated by the age of consent.”
Such brings me to my next topic. Not only have we caught the staff of these servers openly admitting to advocating for Spartacus League, a faction supporting pedophiles, but we have caught a multitude of users openly supporting ISIS against “western imperialism.” This, of course, is the most incredulous discovery that we have made. Why a leftist group would support a violent, reactionary terrorist group defies all logic. Yet, this is exactly what we have found. Calling into question the dealings and intentions of these servers and the staff in them.
And of course, the conspiracy theory that sparked this whole controversy: doxxing. Initially, our intent was purely to find members openly advocating for the doxxing of so-called “fascists,” but as we continued our investigations, we stumbled across something much more, say... intriguing. We had, fortuitously, came across a post with a link to a bot dedicated to “mass-flagging fascists.” Afterwards, a user had sent us a pastebin link with a list of videos leftists were planning to mass strike. Some had already been labeled “down,” that is to say, they had succeeded in striking the video down.
As the evidence continues to accumulate against these individuals, we seem to always find a dialogue or artifact more suspicious than the last. As we expose them for the frauds, the charlatans, and the terrible human beings that they are, they incessantly dilute, tarnish, and stigmatize the philosophy of anarchism. They are not anarchists. They hide under a clever facade, promoting their hypocritical, warped view of “equality, inclusion, and tolerance,” while they work to destroy anarchism’s already feeble reputation. Do not tolerate their lies, and twisted sexual fantasies in the name of our ideology.
This is a call to all rational anarchists. Our ideology and school of thought shall not be ruined by the violent revolutionaries, pedophiles, and general pseudo-anarchists that are so commonly seen in main-stream media. We must learn to disassociate from these individuals, for the benefit of us all. This ‘Tsar Bomba’ as we are quite keen on calling it, is our opportunity to do so.
Let us hope that once this controversy ends, a better and brighter anarchism rises from the ruins. Where will you stand?

Disclaimer: There is no illicit material within this data drop contrary to whatever Batko the Manarchist, Mr. Dapperton, or Jim Jesus say. All the suspicious discoveries were immediately reported to Discord and the appropriate authorities and were not contained within the possession of any investigators involved in this. We encourage you to also report any suspicious content or users to Discord and the authorities in order to protect the innocent lives of children who could be violated by the incentives that pornography featuring minors can lead to. We were very proud to be involved within this investigation to bring justice to children everywhere and protect them from these immoral actions.
Below is a screen shot of our team reporting this to one of dozens of appropriate agencys and proof that we have reported it throughout this entire investigation.
Anarchism is a socio-economic and political theory, but not an ideology. The difference is very important. Basically, theory means you have ideas; an ideology means ideas have you. Anarchism is a body of ideas, but they are flexible, in a constant state of evolution and flux, and open to modification in light of new data. As society changes and develops, so does anarchism. An ideology, in contrast, is a set of “fixed” ideas which people believe dogmatically, usually ignoring reality or “changing” it so as to fit with the ideology, which is (by definition) correct. All such “fixed” ideas are the source of tyranny and contradiction, leading to attempts to make everyone fit onto a Procrustean Bed. This will be true regardless of the ideology in question — Leninism, Objectivism, “Libertarianism,” or whatever — all will have the same effect: the destruction of real individuals in the name of a doctrine, a doctrine that usually serves the interest of some ruling elite. Or, as Michael Bakunin puts it:
“Until now all human history has been only a perpetual and bloody immolation of millions of poor human beings in honour of some pitiless abstraction — God, country, power of state, national honour, historical rights, judicial rights, political liberty, public welfare.” [God and the State, p. 59]
Dogmas are static and deathlike in their rigidity, often the work of some dead “prophet,” religious or secular, whose followers erect his or her ideas into an idol, immutable as stone. Anarchists want the living to bury the dead so that the living can get on with their lives. The living should rule the dead, not vice versa. Ideologies are the nemesis of critical thinking and consequently of freedom, providing a book of rules and “answers” which relieve us of the “burden” of thinking for ourselves.
If you are looking for a new ideology, then sorry, anarchism is not for you.
While anarchists try to be realistic and practical, we are not “reasonable” people. “Reasonable” people uncritically accept what the “experts” and “authorities” tell them is true, and so they will always remain slaves! Anarchists know that, as Bakunin wrote:
“[a] person is strong only when he stands upon his own truth, when he speaks and acts from his deepest convictions. Then, whatever the situation he may be in, he always knows what he must say and do. He may fall, but he cannot bring shame upon himself or his causes.” [quoted in Albert Meltzer, I couldn’t Paint Golden Angels, p. 2]
What Bakunin describes is the power of independent thought, which is the power of freedom. We encourage you not to be “reasonable,” not to accept what others tell you, but to think and act for yourself!
One last point: to state the obvious, this is not the final word on anarchism. Many anarchists will disagree with much that is written here, but this is to be expected when people think for themselves. All we wish to do is indicate the basic ideas of anarchism and give our analysis of certain topics based on how we understand and apply these ideas. We are sure, however, that all anarchists will agree with the core ideas we present, even if they may disagree with our application of them here and there.
