Example text

It is undeniable that antiglobalization movements became possible precisely due to the networks established by globalization. There is not yet, however, a uniform doctrine of anarchism on a world scale, although one can isolate some basic themes, the most consistent of which, as I hope to make clear in this volume, being the idea of unimposed order. There are several possible pathways out of that core idea, but what makes a conclusion particularly anarchist is the extent to which one combines in a meaningful way the two basic directions of anarchist thought, which on the one hand highlighted communal self-determination and on the other individual freedom—or as they had been understood for much of last century and a half, communist anarchism versus libertarian or individualist anarchism.

But unimposed order does mean that the practical authority we use in the course of everyday life vis-à-vis each other is not the model of authority at any higher level. Parental authority in the family, for example, serves a local practical rhythm of life, and as such we negotiate it in our own way as we mature. This is certainly not the model of governmental authority over society. The government does not know you personally, and in spite of that deficiency it still knows one thing for certain: that it has (or at least should have) authority over you.

This also means grasping the fact that in the final analysis what keeps us together is a system of fluid rather than solid solidarities. , my nation, my religion, my state, my tribe, my race, and so on). Rather, you begin with a conscious value, which emerges out of an organic reflection, learning, exploration, and debate. Out of the recent epoch alone we know from the disintegration of nations, the dissolution of social bonds, or the growth of intentional, affiliative communities in the space supposedly occupied by unchosen, filiative communities, that given frames of solidarity are prone to failure and replacement by others when they do not correspond to values more primary than solidarity.
