Anarchy Regional Message Board
Anarchism cannot be nationalist because nationalism is based on loyalty to a nation-state, but unless one is egoist, there's nothing to prevent one from identifying with their nation and being biased towards it's culture. It's a natural human thing to identify with a group and prize it's attributes over other groups (even people before the existence of the state did that). In an anarchist world, I think there will be voluntary associations of those who want to preserve their culture and live with other people who feel the same. I can accept that others prefer multiculturalism and want to form communes built on that principle. But I also expect that others will accept that I prefer uniculturalism and want to form communes based on my principle.
I would expect that communes would eventually form their own cultures regardless. Preferring one's own culture to other cultures may be natural, but it's unfortunate since when we identify with others less we tend to care about them less, we are more likely to do them harm or to not support them. In-group and out-group behavior is also at least one of the causes for every war. I get that people value their own culture and want to preserve it by associating with others who share that, but culture changes over time anyways. A new culture would form if people from many backgrounds lived in a commune together for a long time. If people from the same culture formed a commune, their culture would change over time and still eventually become something different. Culture can't really be preserved in stasis any more than language can, it changes over time. That said, the in-group solidarity of belonging to a culture that is discriminated against can be a valued and necessary survival tactic to cope with oppression from the societally dominant group. People from the dominant group actively preferring their own culture can be part of the cause of the oppression that the minority groups experience though.
I understand your dislike of the co-authors nation name and style. However, this resolution has native support, so I vote for.
things have changed in the mean time. the resolution (which would have been fine in and of itself) was written by a member of the black hawks and since it looked as if the "for" camp was in the lead without any chance of reversal the region was invaded by the black hawks, apparently with the intent of locking it down.
i vote against.
Defenitively against now as well.
Thanks for the info.
I like the concept of anarchy. I really recommend to take a journey of about 3 weeks to Cambodia. There is no formal law, I think.. It is possible to rent a motorbike/car without driving license. However, some accidents might happen. I never had any problems apart from theft on the Thai border. If you really like to feel yourself free then I should give it a try! :)
Not sure what to write here as raiders often disturb our regional message board.. ^_^
there is a formal law in cambodia. it's a constitutional monarchy. the thing about cambodia is that money can easily buy you the sympathy of the police. it's neither an egalitarian society nor really anarchistic in any way, what is referred to as lawlessness in cambodia is mostly just corruption. but yeah, it's a really nice holiday destination nonetheless with lots of friendly people, great weather, nice food and lots of historic sites.
