    Great post! I?m just starting out in cnomumity management/marketing media and trying to learn how to do it well resources like this article are incredibly helpful. As our company is based in the US, it?s all a bit new to us. The example above is something that I worry about as well, how to show your own genuine enthusiasm and share the fact that your product is useful in that case

    It is a mistake to czcraaterihe my argument as an appeal to anarchists to vote. I’m asking anarchists to really stop believing in the state deeply, truly. It’s like that objectivist line about not being an atheist because to be an atheist is to acknowledge that God is not even a meaningful concept to be against . We need to find the right voice. Struggling against the patterns of behavior we lazily refer to as the state often legitimizes and further impresses the importance of that concept in people’s mind. If we can find a way to bash the myth without reinforcing it, THAT would realize my end.

    Jeremy,We all agree, as your article euoqlently stated, that the problem is how to avoid complicity in the system, which happens even or especially when you use the allowed paths of opposition. The original statement of the problem is in c9tienne de La Boe9tie, who inspired the whole concept of non-violent resistance: All governments depend on the approval of their subjects; withdraw approval and the government falls. I guess my question to you was, rephrasing Lenin, What is to be done? What concrete steps do you propose to withdraw consent/complicity/participation? Trade by barter to avoid taxation? Travel by bike to avoid all the money-sucking hooks the state has in your automobile? Live in the country to avoid property tax? The real genius of Ghandi was to create non-violent resistance as the practical expression of Boe9tie’s ideas. We need an ingenious expression of his ideas for the new century. I’ll be the first to lift you on our shoulders if you can do this.
