Post Christian anarchism
Christian anarchism
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christian_anarchism

Quote:
Most Christian anarchists are pacifists and oppose the use of violence, such as war.[3] The foundation of Christian anarchism is a rejection of violence, with Leo Tolstoy's The Kingdom of God Is Within You regarded as a key text.[3][4] Christian anarchists denounce the state as they claim it is violent, deceitful and, when glorified, a form of idolatry


Quote:
Old Testament
Jacques Ellul recounts that at the end of the Book of Judges (Judges 21:25) there was no king in Israel and "everyone did as they saw fit." Later in the first Book of Samuel (1 Samuel 8) the people of Israel wanted a king to be like other nations. God declared that the people had rejected him as their king. He warned that a human king would lead to militarism, conscription and taxation, and that their pleas for mercy from the king's demands would go unanswered. Samuel passed on God's warning to the Israelites but they disregarded him and chose Saul as their king. Much of the subsequent Old Testament chronicles them trying to live with this decision.

Leo Tolstoy wrote extensively about Christian pacifism and anarchism.

Under normal circumstances, the philosophy of christian anarchism has a lot of wisdom on its side. Under abnormal conditions, for example sociopathic abuse and violence, it is extremely vulnerable. You do not turn the other cheek when a psychopath is slicing you up unless you want to hasten your destruction and the destruction of the rest of your kind.

"One size fits all" just doesn't work for the majority given the broad spectrum of human variation and deviancy. It does work for the tiny minority, when they can get the majority to adopt the view the deviants can best work with. That is the basis for mind control.

Anarchism allows for the moment to change the system. This allows for a working comradery amongst a variation of perspectives. This system is based on the principles of liberty.

One size fits all would in the end restrict free speech. Disguising this fact is a basis of mind control.

You appear to be suggesting that self defense, logically concludes destruction of a species. In reverse, this is justifying collateral murder in the name of a cause, which would result in the Furor!

Perhaps you do not respect all compatible beliefs on life? Specifically the question of faith, belief, quantum mechanics, or what I would consider life.

The worse corruption of this "belief", which is inherent, is Religion (Science will be the same thing in time). Atheism tends to be peoples answer to such an overwhelming subject. I cant blame people for this, as to why anarchistic Athiesm should be acknowledged. Agnosticism? Atheism in itself is a one size fits all perspective.

The sociopathic technocracy is the next level of matrix integrity.

I agree. My reference to "one size fits all" applies to the programs the sociopaths develop and push to herd the sheeple, like one world religion, one world economy, one world order, etc.

Not really. When faced with a debilitating parasite, one does not "turn the other cheek" by accommodating the parasite. One devotes all energies to eradicating it and returning to normal. The parasitic species is not eradicated from Nature, but it is eradicated from the body. Once there are no more parasites causing damage to the body, the eradication typically ends. The most successful parasites are those that transition into symbiosis where mutual benefit occurs. This is precisely how cooperation and sharing evolve out of a selfish, dog-eat-dog world.

That is correct. Respect has to be earned. To respect everything equally is to have no real judgment. We must, however, have some tolerance for the variety of judgment found within humans since we are highly prone to error.

Not really. If the shoe fits, wear it. It's one size fits "one".

If we don't get a handle on sociopathy soon, I agree. We are clearly heading in that direction.
