In other news, a protest of the Flag-defender Union of Conservation Committee (FUCC)in front of city hall ended in violence, as free speech advocates advanced on their position. Fourteen were arrested. The FUCC was staging a peaceful protest, objecting to the laws that allow desecration of the flag. "There's free speech," said one protester, "but it has to have limits. That's why we are out here, we object to the descration of the flag so strongly that we're out here burning them, to show people that you can't disrespect the flag." A spokesperson for American Speech Society (ASS), the organization responsible for the counter protest, had this to say: "We couldn't allow the flag burning in this cause to continue. To say that you can't desecrate the flag in protest is violating what that flag stands for; you destroy the meaning of the symbol."

Inspired when I saw a "Honor the Flag" bumper sticker. I mean, seriously, the purpose of the flag is to represent for us the rights that are guaranteed us. To say that the symbol cannot be used in the excersise of those rights is ludicrous. It's just dumb.

On another note, I've got a thought. You can't not live in an anarchy. The fact of the matter is, despite the social institutions that have been put in place, they only have what control you surrender to them. The idea that a nation exists is a myth. Nations are myths, archetypal figures, gods even, with high priests (Presidents) and clergy (senators and representatives). They can only be pleased with sacrifice (money), and certain behaviors (law-abiding). Often, a fitting sacrifice can remove some of the stain of sinning against the nation, and in fact, the clergy will often turn a blind eye if enough of a sacrifice is provided.

Anarchists are just national athiests. We don't buy the myth of the State.
  • Beautifully put.

    Although not an anarchist to my knowledge, it reminds me of something that was said by either Michael Collins or Eamonn de Valera about the Irish revolution: "We will defeat the British Empire by ignoring it."
