When I first realized I was an anarchist I was excited to have finally discovered a political ideology I identify with. The problem is that now I have become acutely aware of the vast breadth of injustice and suffering in this world caused by those in power & I don't feel like I fit...well, anywhere within "society". I haven't had a job in almost 12 months, largely because I don't want my labour to contribute towards supporting the state. How do I live without feeling like a hypocrite? :/
“No one should ever work.
Work is the source of nearly all the misery in the world. Almost any evil you’d care to name comes
from working or from living in a world designed for work. In order to stop suffering, we have to stop
That doesn’t mean we have to stop doing things. It does mean creating a new way of life based
on play; in other words, a ludic conviviality, commensality, and maybe even art. There is more to
play than child’s play, as worthy as that is. I call for a collective adventure in generalized joy and
freely interdependent exuberance. Play isn’t passive. Doubtless we all need a lot more time for sheer
sloth and slack than we ever enjoy now, regardless of income or occupation, but once recovered from
employment-induced exhaustion nearly all of us want to act. Oblomovism and Stakhanovism are two
sides of the same debased coin.
The ludic life is totally incompatible with existing reality.
I disagree. It is now possible to abolish work and replace it, insofar as it serves useful purposes, with
a multitude of new kinds of free activities. To abolish work requires going at it from two directions,
quantitative and qualitative. On the one hand, on the quantitative side, we have to cut down massively
on the amount of work being done. At present most work is useless or worse and we should simply
get rid of it.
On the other hand — and I think this is the crux of the matter and the revolutionary
new departure — we have to take what useful work remains and transform it into a pleasing variety
of game-like and craft-like pastimes, indistinguishable from other pleasurable pastimes, except that
they happen to yield useful end-products. Surely that shouldn’t make them less enticing to do.
all the artificial barriers of power and property could come down. Creation could become recreation.
And we could all stop being afraid of each other.
I don’t suggest that most work is salvageable in this way. But then most work isn’t worth trying
to save. Only a small and diminishing fraction of work serves any useful purpose independent of the
defense and reproduction of the work-system and its political and legal appendages.
Twenty years ago,
Paul and Percival Goodman estimated that just five percent of the work then being done — presumably
the figure, if accurate, is lower now — would satisfy our minimal needs for food, clothing, and shelter.
Theirs was only an educated guess but the main point is quite clear: directly or indirectly, most work
serves the unproductive purposes of commerce or social control. Right off the bat we can liberate tens
of millions of salesmen, soldiers, managers, cops, stockbrokers, clergymen, bankers, lawyers, teachers,
landlords, security guards, ad-men and everyone who works for them.
There is a snowball effect since every time you idle some bigshot you liberate his flunkeys and underlings also. Thus the economy
Bernie Sanders has ALWAYS Helped Working Class Americans
It is nearly impossible to get a full time job for numerous reasons. Most of them have little to do with a lack of need for more workers. The fact is that unemployment figures are thrown around quite a bit, but the figures themselves are distorted for political reasons. Millions of Americans work hard all day for minimum wage and barely scrape by. They work 34 hours a week, or some other arbitrary number below 40, in order to keep them from the benefits full time employment provides. This only adds to the burden created by lack of medical care, child care, and all the other expenses working families encounter. For young people getting a job out of college is nearly impossible and with massive amounts of college debt those high interest rates make the situation even more dire. Something needs to be done, a lot of changes need to be made. So far nobody seems to want to make those changes, except Bernie Sanders. Bernie Sanders has consistently fought to bring meaningful employment to Americans through government work programs. On top of that he has also consistently advocated for meaningful change in health care, education, and increase in minimum wage. All to benefit the average worker. Bernie Sanders 2016!
Silicon Valley is on top yet again. For 10 years Dice, a 24-year-old site that specializes in technology jobs, has rated the metro area that stretches from San Jose to San Francisco as the top-paying spot in the country for tech jobs. The average salary: $112,600, up 3.7% from the year before. That’s some $23,000 more than the nationwide average of $89,450. Across the country, tech salaries are up 2% over the previous year.
La apoderada del PP, que integró la candidatura de su partido en las elecciones del año 2011, en las que Hernández Cansino fue cabeza de lista a la Alcaldía de la localidad, argumenta que a la hora de comer dejó su teléfono “cargando en el colegio electoral” en el que se encontraba y que, cuando regresó, se encontró ya escritos los mensajes.

“¡Y cuán leve es el susurro que hemos oído de Él! Pero el trueno de Su poder, ¿quién lo puede comprender?” Job 25.26
Intentar comprender a Dios en toda Su majestad es una tarea interminable que pondrá a prueba nuestras capacidades humanas, siempre limitadas por sí mismas. Reducir a Dios en un solo concepto, intentar describirle con un puñado de palabras, atreverse a hablar de Él es una osada labor que nos llevará a concluir: “¿qué es el hombre para que tengas de él memoria, y el hijo del hombre, para que lo visites?” (Salmo 8.4)
¡Cuán leve, diría Job, es lo que hemos oído de Él! (Job 25.26) ¿Quién podrá estar de pie cuando Él se manifieste? Nuestro Dios que es fuego purificador. (Malaquías 3.2)
Y el salmista concluye: Ahora, pues, oh reyes, sed prudentes; admitid amonestación, jueces de la tierra. Servid al Señor con temor, y alegraos con temblor. Honrad al Hijo, para que no se enoje, y perezcáis en el camino; pues se inflama de pronto Su ira. Bienaventurado todos los que en Él confían.” (Salmo 2.10-12).
Seamos, pues, prudentes, teniendo siempre presente que servimos al Dios vivo.

“Ask yourself if you would do it if nobody would ever see it, if you would never be compensated for it, if nobody ever wanted it. If you come to a clear ‘yes’ in spite of it, then go ahead and don’t doubt it anymore.”
