The New Testament, or the Holy Book of the Christian Religion, contains an interesting story. The leader of the Nazarenes, Jesus Christ, during his Sermon on the Mount, warns his disciples about the ‘wolves in sheep’s clothing.’ Apparently, even those days, there were abundant ‘self-proclaimed leaders’ among the brotherhood of believers. That leader, the Christ, cautioned his disciples that they must remain wary of the dangers in the evil world, (the Roman Empire), as they went out and proclaimed the power of the Christ. He later admonishes them again during his last days in Jerusalem, before his future Passion and Death, about the many false prophets and deceivers that would try to lure them away from the Truth.

It is quite ironic that Christianity, and which has represented the most powerful, sophisticated and extremist of the monotheist religious ideologies, has always maintained a humongous list of such wolves in sheep’s clothing. The historical record of its own gross hypocrites, pathological liars, hierarchical leaders, ego maniacs, madmen cultists, lunatic sects, arch-criminals, rapists and murderers, has been quite outstanding. No other world religion in human history has developed nor cultivated such a torrid and perverted catalogue of monsters and deceivers. Still to this actual day, spiritual degenerates across the globe have parasited off the unwary, naive and desperate believers.

We should not just point the finger at the spiritual ones in regards to the parasite-leaders and hucksters that have abused their faithful followers. We Anarchists have also fallen under the disease ridden gazes of cults of personalities, bogus leaders, radical salesmen, super revolutionaries, pseudo-authentic cool rebels – and even egotistical fanatics. Again, we have human history that has exposed such sordid truths.

There was the infamous story of the Russian revolutionist, Sergei Nechayev. Sergei actually came from a working class Russian background, unlike many other fellow revolutionaries, such as the Anarchist, Pyotr Kropotkin, who was born upper class. Sergei first worked with the Anarchist, Mikhail Bakunin. They collaborated together on writing revolutionary pamphlets, and then in the 1870s, Sergei branched out to form his own political cult, ‘The People’s Retribution,’ or ‘The Society of the Axe.’ Their holy book was his previously written pamphlet, ‘The Catechism of a Revolutionary.’

Like most cult leaders or cults of personalities, Nechayev was a sloppy reader of political and philosophical texts. He either didn’t have the time, or more than likely, was simply too lazy to read as a historian, meaning reading most of the author’s general works, and then interpreting between the text lines for the overall historical contexts.

Sergei read parts of Machiavelli’s The Prince, and St. Ignatius Loyola’s Spiritual Exercises, and then decided to plagiarize from them for his holy book, ‘The Catechism.’ Most spiritual and political ‘leaders’ have used identical methods, and will continue to use similar pilfering – without footnotes of course.

This super Russian revolutionist transformed into an ego maniac who controlled ‘his group’ through deceit, divide and conquer techniques, and psycho-manipulation. While the arch hypocrite fulminated against the evil, despotic Czar Emperors of Russia, this madman was constructing a little monstrous state of about 50 followers. When one of ‘his followers’ questioned his leadership, he formed a secretive group to murder him, which the leader exactly performed. A hundred years earlier, before there was Jim Jones and his Poison Acid-Kool Aid mass suicide at the People’s Temple in the jungles of Guyana, there was this maniac.

Thankfully, Bakunin alerted the other Anarchist revolutionaries of Europe about the danger of Nechayev, and that other radicals had to watch out for such a crooked individual.

Eventually, the Russian authorities captured the deceiver and sent him to die in a Czarist prison. Some years later, the Third Section Intelligence Service tried to recruit the lowlife as an informer and spy, but Nechayev’s madness had already diseased both his body and mind. The lunatic died wretchedly in his cell a few years later.

Unfortunately, the sinister influence of such a ‘revolutionary martyr,’ has led to other control freaks and political monsters in copying such nefarious methods. One such leader was the Russian Communist revolutionary-dictator, Vladimir Lenin, who formed his own death squad to imprison and murder his political enemies, called Cheka. After Lenin, there emerged the infamous Josef Stalin, who formed a more perfect union of the intelligence-death squads, later renamed NKVD. Such are the fruits from one prophetic so-called leader seeping out of the radical vanguard.

Anarchists have also fallen for the traps and snares of such master manipulators. During the Spanish Civil War of the 1930s, many Catalan Anarchists dived into the spell of the Anarchist leader-bank robber-outlaw-revolutionist, Buenaventura Durruti. Durruti was a great Anarchist leader, but he was not the only warrior to fight Fascists in battle. The regular fighting men of his military column performed great acts of valor too. As Anarchists we must always praise the common work and basic struggles of all honorable fighters. And as Anarchist historians, we fully reject the cult of all leaders, or the ‘great men of history’ trope. The human condition under civilization has always created its own history of everyday heroes. And this has always been the truth.

But within our own troubling, contemporary times, there are still self-proclaimed, ”radical’ leaders and political cultists that fight for our affections. They rant, hog the conversations, interrupt us, bully the weak, write unreadable and tiresome books and other useless pamphlets, and they even send their minions to our events and struggles. They do this – not to further the resistance – but instead, to recruit more slaves into their organization.

How can we spot the wolves in sheep’s clothing? Their literature and words always point at and mention one particular leader, one specific ego, one self-adulating buffoon who seems to have most of the answers for all the horrors found in our evil world.

How do we deal with them? We must reject them completely. The moment they begin their propaganda diarrhea, or ‘spiel,’ we can stop them verbally and admonish them to think for their own selves. A few might threaten violence against us, but reaching for our firearms ready for use will shut up the true believers quite quickly. Remember this too: a cult follower is also a coward.

We Anarchists are not cowards, nor are we slaves; we follow no leaders, no personalities, no cults, no sects, no ideologies and no states. We bow to no strange ‘gods,’ nor to any human rulers or leaders. We are free warriors fighting for our daily dignity and honor. This simple code maintains our freedom, while it shields us from the political cultist pests.

Ideologyideologyreligious_ideologiesideolgoy-tee-shirt ideological masterideology brainwash

The mind is a terrible thing to release.

The human body requires freedom of movement, but our minds submerged in human civilization need discipline. This simple truth represents a terrible contradiction, but it is more akin to human absurdity. If we all want to achieve a mental tranquility that leads to true freedom, then we have to train our minds to watchfulness on what we are actually accomplishing.

This method of the mind implies a total and absolute awareness, or concentrated mindfulness, on what we are actually doing and the marvelous magic that surrounds our actions. This practice further includes simple tasks, such as, breathing, sitting, standing, walking, thinking, pushing-pulling, ascending-descending, turning, etc.

Such a method for the brain is much easier to write about, than to perform in live practice. It takes the strength of the will and some personal determination to transform our minds into the wonderful now, this very moment of life leading unto our unknown deaths. We could actually love our paths towards transformation, rather than reaching for the ‘goals.’

Yet, our actual ‘life goals’ are often mirages or bizarre fantasies that usually don’t come from our minds; instead, they host and feed deep within our brains, and most unfortunately, those troublesome ideas have taken over our imaginations.

Living in our modern world, we are all inundated with incessant, perverted state propaganda, corporate media lies, advertising crap and publicity refuse. We have no real choices in the matter. Our imaginations and mental reasoning are bound in the tangled webs of ingenious media deceit. This deception comes from a myriad of sources that have incubated from outside of us. Modern mediums of communication share one common disease-ridden strain: hegemonic ties and ideological nonsense.

Ideology had its first eruptions under the rubrics of human civilization, around 6,000 years ago, implying static communities that practiced agriculture, instituted intra-family hierarchies, rituals and temporary social positions. Family dynasties consolidated their organized household properties: first moveable, such as domesticated animals, jewelry, clothes and basic furniture, and second, the immobile, such as lands and water routes. These civilizations also fabricated artisanal hierarchies through ceramic works, carpentry, culinary arts, medicinal-herbalism, masonry, language-scribe work, metallurgy, etc.

From this socio-economic base emerged the first political economies. These political economies later created social class differences and moveable market stations for trade and the creation of a merchant class. In order to facilitate trading, agreed to mediums of exchange, or money, emerged, such as cattle or precious commodities.

Due to differences in class positions, status and cultural differences emerged. Some societies had more of something than the other ones. Cravings and Conflict increased in intensity, and so village centers had to fortify their strategic positions, usually near water routes. Villages built walls or moved their center positions to higher altitudes, or they used both methods. This was the birth of the city.

These power centers could also wage wars, or stage treaties for peace. From this greater social complexity, a class of convincing and eloquent speakers, persuasive priests, and top warriors known for courage in combat, had transformed themselves into local leaders. The successful leaders won martial victories over enemies and furthered geographic extensions of the sacred territories.

Before there were ideologies, the victors representing the chosen community, embodied the incubation of social power through state craft.

In order to maintain social cohesion within the sacred community, leaders had to interpret the commonly held world-views, or render the cultural foundations that had originally created and nurtured ‘the sacred land and the sacred people.’

Their creative works of interpretation represented a marvelous culmination. Their concepts moved from a hodgepodge of ideas and mental imagination towards transcendence: the ordered and organized state-people-territory-religion cult.

Ancient Egyptian, Mesopotamian, Indian and Chinese religions were good examples. Latter imperial empires of ancient history also formulated their particular religious origins, legends, prophecies, myths, fantastic stories, heroic accounts, historical lessons and theatrical pieces, such as the Ancient Hellenes, or Greeks, the Ancient Romans, (before the official state religion of Christianity), and the Ancient Persians, or Iranians.

In the Americas, the Olmecs, Toltecs, the Mexica-Aztec regime, the Mayan city-state alliances, the Chavin religious center in the Andes, the Wari military regimes, the Chimú city states and the Inca Imperial Empire, all of those civilizations created similar religion-state-people-sacred land concepts.

Around 600 BCE, the Ancient Persians transcended even further. They created both a state-people-territory religion and a belief system that could travel across lands. The ancient Zoroastrian faith had embraced the powerful concept of mystical monotheism.

There was one God of Light and Love, Ahura Mazda and his archangels, who constantly battled an enemy, a Spirit of Evil and his demons called Anghra Mainyu. The Revelation of this one God came out of the voice of the Prophet, Zarathustra. The Holy Book, encompassing the Law, hymns or Psalms, rituals or Liturgies, while proclaiming the Divine Message, had the name of Avesta. Through the regular recitation of prayers, cleansings or Baptisms, and community rituals or Worship, believers could attain sanctification with the One God, and thereby Resurrect their Soul bodies into the Divine Heaven.

Zoroastrianism begat the other world religions of ancient history in Mesopotamia and the Mediterranean world, such as Judaism, Mithraism and Manichaeism. The most powerful of the three was Judaism.

Judaism linked the monotheistic, all-powerful God, with his adversary, Satan, and created a complete ethical-historical-mystical- heavenly realm around the One God and his chosen people, the Jews, which held the tablets of the sacred Law of Moses, originally given to the Hebrew speaking nation during their exile from Egypt.

The first Jews had emerged from exile during the grand epoch of Persian imperial control in order to rebuild the Second Temple of Solomon, destroyed during the Babylonian imperial invasion of Jerusalem in 597 BCE. Like the Zoroastrians, the Jews also developed the concept of a resurrected afterlife location called Sheol.

The Jews were the first religion-nation-land sacred cult, (from the earlier Hebrew identity), with the ability to transform themselves into a cosmopolitan and urban society of ‘believers.’ Their holy book, the ‘Tanakh,’ moved into the universality of world civilization, and this same transformation also took place after the foundation of the grand empire of Alexander the Great. Taking advantage of such a great political opportunity, Judaism spread from Mesopotamia and the Levant region into various regions of Asia, Africa and Europe.

Two later monotheistic religions in the ancient world had also transcended to even greater heights than Judaism. The two monotheist gods had fully given up the idea of a sacred earth and a sacred people. They, instead, raised the believer to the class of the priesthood. These two religious faiths represented Christianity and Islam.

Not only did they scrap the old land-people-temple-kingdom statecraft order, but they both became world religions within a short space of time after their ‘persecuted’ births. They built entire civilizations and world cultures under their jurisdictions, and which still last today. Their ancient names were Christendom, or the Christian kingdoms yoked under the Universal Catholic-Orthodox Church, and Dar Al-Islam, or those submitted to the Muslim faith, ruled through the Caliphate, and later, the Sultanate. Universal, world religions became the first ideologies. The sole criteria for both sanctification and power came through the institutionalized faith.

This is the full definition of ideologies. Ideology represents a compendium of contradictory and myriad beliefs, ideas, dogmas, creeds, doctrines and theses under some type of organized belief system transformed into a cosmopolitan science of universal truth.

Within our modern and contemporary world, ideologies have transcended into their final and most powerful positions. There are now hundreds of sets and subsets of ideologies, whether political, intellectual or cultural. Ideological positions have suffocated people’s minds across the Earth; while, ideological institutions have continually tried to seize the state or warp the general culture, all in order to both control the general population and murder their ideological enemies. We Anarchists have a special role in helping to destroy the intellectual foundations of all ideologies – inclusive of our very own faith – ‘Anarchism.’

Not only do ideologies create schemas for pseudo-truths, but they have also created political institutions and have formed sociopolitical alliances, or hegemonic ties. In the medieval period of the Mediterranean world, the Catholic Church constituted political pacts with powerful kingdoms, such as the Frankish Kingdom, (around 700 A.D.), the Holy Roman Empire, (around 800 A.D.), and the Kingdom of France, (around 1200 A.D.). During the ninth century A.D., the Islamic world created rival caliphates, such as the Caliphate of Al-Andalus, or Spain in the west, and the Great Caliphate of Baghdad, the Abbasids, in the east.

From 1400-2000 A.D., in the continent of Europe, the plague of ideologies increased a hundred fold. Most ideologies transferred themselves onto the secular world and they began to drop their religious connotations. The first ones were Renaissance Humanism, Protestantism, Trent Catholicism, Mannerism, the Scientific Revolution and the Enlightenment or the Illustration.

From these ideological sets, emerged the subsets of Rationalism, Liberalism, Nationalism, Journalism, Regionalism, Constitutionalism, Conservatism, Modernism, Marxism, Socialism, Communism, Leninism, Trotskyism, Stalinism, Maoism, Libertarianism, Monopoly Capitalism, Objectivism, Monarchism, Republicanism, Anarchism, Progressivism, Individualism, Feminism, Positivism, Nihilism, Utilitarianism, Imperialism, Keynesian Capitalism, Eugenics, Colonialism, Orientalism, Militarism, Racialism, Anti-Semitism, Fascism, Zionism, Neoliberalism, Communalism, Postmodernism, American Exceptionalism, Communitarianism, etc. Simultaneously, multiple artistic-intellectual ideologies came into view, such as Realism, Symbolism, Impressionism, Fauvism, Structuralism, Functionalism, Constructivism, Pointillism, Surrealism, Classicism, Neoclassicism, Minimalism, etc.

Meanwhile, intellectual and academic based movements have appeared on the modern cultural scene in order to seize some cultural capital and perpetuate their power. Some examples have included the Psychology Cult, Sexuality Studies, Social Engineering-Sociology or social control theories, Educational Theory-Leadership or coercive state schooling, Military Sciences or warmongering, Anthropology-Intelligence Data Mining, or state-corporate spying and subversion of indigenous cultures, Journalism-Media Studies or media manipulation, Business-Advertising-Management Theory or profiteering, Criminal Justice Theory or modern prisons, Public Health-Nutritional Studies or modern medicine, etc.

There are hundreds more of these ideological plagues, which are too long to mention in this essay, all incubating and rotting the insides of life within our small Earth. It is no wonder that our world has become so confusing, horrifying and daunting, while the more sensitive people turn to drug addiction or madness in order to escape such mental delirium under the lies of crap science and twisted truths.

The most ideologically poisoned land on the Earth is the current Amerikan Empire. The polished serial killers currently holding power have maintained an empire through erecting various levels of cultural dry walls and insulations to rule more effectively over the ignorant and cowardly subjects. This criminal super state has managed even greater hierarchical levels of revolving doors that have kept the safe distances between its shocking leaders and the lumpen citizen mass.

The functional highway median gradations between the state and the people have sustained themselves through ordered systems of respected knowledge and pseudo-sciences, such as Liberalism, Democracy, State Government, Constitutionalism, etc. These same ideological systems and institutions have given a fine shine and brilliant luster to an otherwise horrifying, criminal enterprise. This state of the art indoctrination system has worked marvelously. Within US society, all social classes, ethnicities, and most subcultures consent to the US government as the legitimate authority in matters of social control, waging total and aggressive war, and the right to legal theft, or taxation.

All modern states or governments must use a contradictory assortment of cultural, social, intellectual and political ideologies in order to effectively rule and abuse their citizen-subject victims. State and elite sponsored ideological formations have waged a ruthless propaganda war against our fragile minds since our childhoods. How do we Anarchists fight such cultural malformations allied with the state? How can we can help free the minds of our fellow humans?

The two proven methods are to both intellectually refute their theoretical lies with counter-knowledge, and to publicly ridicule such mental nonsense. This method also critiques the few remaining doctrinaires coming out of another ideological mess – Anarchism.
