    A Beautiful Anarchy

    A Beautiful Anarchy by Jeffrey Tucker Here is my presentation of what it means to be an anarchist: to see the beauty of freedom all around. People do not love living in cages. They break free. Moreover, the state cannot really control people, not even in prison. Freedom is part of the structure of how we think and live. Kick off the discussion!

Description

Join Jeffrey Tucker for an examination of Albert Jay Nock’s famous essay, “Isaiah’s Job.” This essay has been seen as both pessimistic and heroic, and at embodies the best of Nock’s skills as a thinker and a writer. Here’s a sample:

One evening last autumn, I sat long hours with a European acquaintance while he expounded a political-economic doctrine which seemed sound as a nut and in which I could find no defect. At the end, he said with great earnestness: “I have a mission to the masses. I feel that I am called to get the ear of the people. I shall devote the rest of my life to spreading my doctrine far and wide among the population. What do you think?” …

I mustered courage to say that he had no such mission and would do well to get the idea out of his head at once.
