ANARCHISM: Bringing ORDER to State-Created & Sustained CHAOS! (A Repost)


{The following is a repost from March of 2017}

Here is an example of anarchism overcoming the chaos created by the elite-swine owned and operated state (STATISM). Chaos, after all, is all the state has to offer we the individuals.

The following reveals how a self-governing/self-sustaining community can thrive without the despotic interference/meddling of the elite-swine psychopaths and their (s)elected stooges:

Anarchists Fixing Potholes In Roads In Portland, Oregon

By Vic Bishop

Over one half of every tax dollar we give to Uncle Sam is spent on ‘defense,’ yet anytime aa free-thinker questions the need to be ruled by a giant, bloated, corrupt government, the argument is that we need government because we need roads.

Public infrastructure is in serious neglect, though, and to set an example of this disconnect between reality and fantasy, a group of Portland anarchists has established a group which fixes potholes in public roads without notifying the government, and without using public taxes.

From the ‘about’ section on their Facebook page:

“Because we believe in building community solutions to the issues we face, outside of the state.

Because society portrays anarchists as only breaking windows and blocking roads.

Because when faced with anarchism as a political theory, statest often ask “But who will fix the roads.”
Because the city of Portland refuses to adequately repair roads in a timely manner.

We are Portland Anarchist Road Care. We believe in community oriented direct action. We believe the state cares more about funding a militarized police force to suppress free speech than caring for and repairing the roads.

The city of Portland has shown gross negligence in its inadequate preventative care through this winter’s storms, and through its slow repair of potholes as weather has improved. Daily, this negligence is an active danger to cyclists and causes damage to people’s automobiles, and an increased risk of collision and bodily injury.

Portland Anarchist Road Care aims to mobilize crews throughout our city, in our neighborhoods, to patch our streets, build community, and continue to find solutions to community problems outside of the state.” [Source]

Declaring itself as a political organization, the group considers this type of basic road repair by members of the local community to be a political action, highlighting the fact that we live in a time where the state has taken over many areas of shared society which have historically been managed by members of the community.

PARC takes the state of the roads of PDX into the hands of the people. State neglect has caused the streets to fall into disrepair. We will fix the streets. [Source]

The state inserts itself into every mundane and communal area of life, so it will be interesting see how the government handles citizens doing basic work such as this. Will Portland treat this group as many cities are treating groups who feed the homeless? Will the government outlaw fixing potholes by saying that it is not safe for people other than government to do such work? Will they call it vandalism? Will the people who are doing this be arrested for taking matters in to their own hands?

Anarchism is the idea that people can create and maintain societies without the presence of organized, bureaucratic government. What do you think, is this possible in our world today?

  1. This is so cool, and the thing about Yellowstone and how private companies are taking care of the park. I’d like to see more posts like this. It shows solutions, and that’s exactly what we need right now. Learn how to be self reliant and to solve our own problems. Thanks for sharing!


  2. Thanks, Jessica! Good to hear from you!

    Yes, anarchism, at least for now, is what I look to as a possible solution for the hell this world is in right now. This is why I posted so many articles on small, self-governing/sustaining communities in the past. But most of these postings were basically ignored.

    As you point out, we need solutions to this age old world order, which if not ended soon, will destroy everything.

    I’m not going back to blogging full time. But I am going to post things, here and there, that speak to me.

    Thanks, Jessica!

  3. Well, I totally understand. You’ve got to make time for yourself. If something is taking too much energy, it’s time to take a break or cut it back a little. Anyway, quality over quantity is better, in my opinion.

  4. My health, for quite a while now, has been less than perfect. And last October, in particular, I felt as if I were coming apart at the seams. And yet, at that time, I was afraid to stop blogging for fear I might lose it completely.

    But I had no choice, so I stopped. And I didn’t go crazy. Instead, I found some much needed peace, although not perfect by any stretch of the imagination.

    So now, I think I’m ready to begin again, but not in an obsessive, compulsive way. Or at lest i hope so!;-) I’m not the sanest person I have ever known;-)

    Thanks again, Jessica!
