About

Have a PhD in history; yet have been living under permanent unemployment and underemployment since receiving that degree.

The essays are from the perspective of an Anarchist Historian. Anarchist positions are classical Anarchism-Autonomy, meaning Anti-State, Anti-Capitalism and Against All Authoritarians, including self-proclaimed Anarchist leaders and Anarcho-ideologues.

Served in the US military for four years in a non-combatant role. Own guns, so a few of my topics will deal with the right to bear arms, shooting practice, and the history and the culture of firearms.

Have lived overseas in cities in both Europe and in the Americas, and have also done some traveling around the world, inclusive of reading, writing, researching, drawing, painting and street performance.

    Tony, it has been great for me to discover your essays on the internet, most of all they have helped me understand more about: what is an anarchist ?

    previously i was of the common opinion that an anarchist is someone who idealizes a society where chaos rules and the law of the jungle applies. However i now understand that this is lie and not at all the true meaning of the concept.

    I am a young man from Europe and my curiosity is never ending. Right now i am in southern California visiting relatives. If you are anywhere close to there, it would be a pleasure to meet you and talk.

      Thanks for the comments Jett,
      This is one of the reasons for my blog. Anarchy is a way of life that tries to create an existence outside of the crooked reigns of the state and capitalism. It hopes to create livable alternatives to the evil world around us.

      Enjoy the weather in Southern California – but watch out for the laws in that over-legislated state run by crooks and criminals. Some everyday activities of fun for a European are actual felonies that could actually land you some years in one of the highest prison populations in the world – the State of California.
      Regards,

  2. Tony, this is hard stuff, and yes, so true, but I think America was still the best place and was based originally on the ideas of the Age of Reason, but as even the founding fathers said, things like what your describing here would happen and we would end in convulsion. Its happening, and I like your basic liberal ideas, which as far as I am concerned mean embracing the right of free individuals to own the weapons of war, good show! I’m a documentary film maker who is currently working on a piece about how Spain and Hispanics were essential in winning the American Revolution, getting a lot of resistance to this! In the mean time loving your articles, thanks!

      Thanks Thomas for your points about American history and the Age of Reason.

      The founding fathers of the US were definitely political Liberals in the original sense of the term, meaning they wholeheartedly accepted the ideas of the Enlightenment, such as freedom of speech, opinion, press, petition of grievances, and armed citizens versus the power of the state. The Liberalism that they represented was the Liberalism of civil liberties, offered by the State for citizens under the same state.

      Good luck on your documentary work regarding Spain and Spanish speaking people during the American Revolution.
      Regards,
      Tony
