You really can become an individualist anarchist and this guide explains how.

    Preventing New States After Societal Fall?

    It’s a gamble: can the anarchist movement reach enough people fast enough that we can form strong pockets of anarchy unshakeable by future statism? I’m talking about in our lifetimes, right now. I’m a member of the FSP, and will be living as much of an anarchist life as possible within that economy. As more places trend towards anarchy due to a high population of liberty-minded people living there, how can we ensure these communities are protected from statism?   I refuse to repeat history, but I am only one individual. Utilizing our internet connections to form greater influence in our real lives, I know we can have at least a few pockets of anarchy even as the rest of the world devolves into another state.
