Politics can be defined as the affairs of governance, which comprises government and religion above all.
However politics can be understood in a broader sense as the defining aspect of man, as the Greeks used to say, the human endeavor to negotiate or interact with its neighbors peacefully or violently.
The realm of nature shows it clearly, wherever there is fight for resources there is politics. Wherever there is will for survival there is will for dominance.
And all this manifestations, of life and nature, obey the most basic principle of the universe: chaos.
All things derive from chaos.
Chaos is a natural order, it is a hierarchy, a self sustained system from which the stream of life flows and comes back to it.
Chaos creates life and takes it back again, it is a never ending loop.
It has agency over space, time, gravity and all forms of spirituality.
It is a multifaceted god, if not the father and mother of all the gods.
It is also the antigod, the dark neccesary force for renewal.
It is the religion of the world, and the very demise of all religions.
We were born from chaos. All our institutions stem ultimately from chaos. Language itself, as an instrument for politics.
Chaos has to be understood here as a maw of endless possibilities, a source of limitless energy. And cosmos is but the result of that energy.
The human cosmos can be seen through its institutions, such as government, state or religion. It is everywhere. But what anarchists understand for “government” ultimately comes from the deranged idea that the state has objective perceptible boundaries, when, in truth, it hasn’t. And here is why.
The state is nothing but a conspiracy theory created by human relations in order to engrain different structures of power into a supposed social unity, but it is not material, it is ideological.
The problem with the majority of anarchists is that they are unable to acknowledge this subtle layers that delineate a structure of power, which in the end constitutes the dynamic network by which human behaviour takes effect.
They don’t see that the tyrannical possibilities of mankind is not restricted to an arbitrary abstract concept such as “the state”, or “government”.
Tyranny appears within close relationships, family, parenting, sex, spirituality, religion. It is everywhere and it is subtle.
It doesn’t need direct force, nor coercion for it to aquire dominance. It requires simple things such as empathy, admiration, devotion towards something, or even compassion.
It doesn’t take much for a tyrant to use these concepts of human redemption and evolution to enslave humanity to itself once again. It is very easy, all religions do it.
Like, for example, the case of the anarchists.
While in theory they advocate for individual freedom they don’t honour the individual process in practice.
Because they talk a collective talk, they preach a collective narrative.
And they want everyone to preach that narrative.
They want everyone to think the same, to say the same, the same things they say.
They truly behave as a collective, even in their praise and advocacy for the individual.
And when the individual deviates from the common narrative, from the shared discourse, they try to silence it, so they can honour the collective, the herd.
So the individual doesn’t destroy the common ground, the supposed common goal.
All for the sake of an ideological cause shared by a group of people who identify with it.
That’s the nature of religion.
It groups people together so they abandon their individuality for the sake of a collective cause, so they become a single entity without the shortcomings of dissidence and, once again, form a formidable unit against chaos. That’s how religions work.
All social formations require a hierarchy to function. Without hierarchy there would be no system of values to engrain neither thought process, nor choice making. And this of course manifests both collectively and individually.
Just like the word “hierarchy”, “the rule of wrath”. It denotes the idea of force, a moral principle, a rule that ultimately serves as a building foundation for all institutions to serve human need, and this is always structured through a notion of power.
So, where is the anarchy when there is always a hierarchy going on?
And this is just theory.
Reality is much, much more worse.
