Are the neocons heirs to anarchism? The neocons are a leftist splinter group that moved to the right adopting some elements of economic conservatism along with anti-communism, but not adopting a belief in the self of the West identified with European peoples. The neocons are universalists, not Westerners in this sense.
The neocons as a splinter from leftism are descended from 19th century leftist movements. This includes the anarchist movement. Anarchists were, like neocons, a universalist, anti-nationalist movement.
Anarchism was difficult to identify on what it really stood for. It was easier to say what it was against. The neocons are the same. When the term neocon became known to the public, it was difficult for the public to know what it meant. In fact, that is still the case. The anarchists and neocons are both against the traditional West including its identity with European peoples.
The neocons supported Muslim immigration before 9-11 and after 9-11. Thus it was a neocon policy that led to the September 11, 2001 attacks from within the U.S. by Muslim immigrants. The neocons have continued to advocate and implement the same immigration after 9-11 thus taking ownership of 9-11.
Leon Czolgosz, an anarchist and born here in the U.S. to immigrants, shot President McKinley on September 6, 1901. The anarchists supported immigration before and after this attack. They too attacked those for immigration restriction as nativists and the rest.
The anarchist bombings and attacks didn’t stop on September 6, 1901. They continued on September 16, 1920 in the Wall Street bombings.
These were a continuation of other bombings and incidents from before the McKinley assassination. This included the attack on Frick.
On June 2, 1919, there were coordinated bombings by anarchist leftists. These included on the house of the Attorney General Palmer. The left only remembers the Palmer Raids, not the bombings.
The neocons have taken ownership of the immigration that led to 9-11 but also to the anarchist bombings. They link them together themselves by calling those for immigration restriction during the time of the anarchist attacks, nativists and bigots. They use the same terms for those against immigration now during the Muslim attack on the West. That includes multiple incidents in the U.S. and Europe. Let’s not forget the 1972 Munich Olympics, as Vanishing American reminds us in her article on Nationalists and Neocons. See the article before this one here for more on that article and the discussion thread at VA’s site.
If we look at the consequences of neocon policies, its always anarchy. Iraq is the great work of neoconism. So is Afghanistan. Both are in anarchy. The neocons have an indifference to reality and to the consequences of the people of a land of their policies.
This neocon indifference applies most of all at home in America. The neocons brought the 9-11 immigrants after the 1993 World Trade Center attack. They are the ones who took ownership of the 9-11 2001 attacks by continuing the same immigration after the 1993 attack and the 2001 attack.
It was Bush’s policy before 9-11-2001 to end profiling of Muslims and Arabs as Steve Sailer pointed out on 9-11. That was what led one security person to let Atta through. The person said if he wasn’t a terrorist who would be? But let him through. That was Bush policy to let Atta through.
The 9-11 2001 attack is the direct descendant of the 9-16-1920 Wall Street bombings and 9-16-1901 McKinley assassination. The neocons are the direct descendants of the anarchist leftist movements of the 19th century. They consider those who were for immigration restriction during the anarchist bombings to be nativists and bigots, and say the same of those for immigration restriction from the 1993 World Trade Center attack through today to be nativists and bigots.
The forerunners of neoconservatism were often liberals or socialists who strongly supported World War II, and who were influenced by the Depression-era ideas of former New Dealers, trade unionists, and Trotskyists, particularly those who followed the political ideas of Max Shachtman. A number of future neoconservatives, such as Jeane Kirkpatrick, were Shachtmanites in their youth; some were later involved with Social Democrats USA. In this way neoconservatives claim to be compassionate to the people they govern by serving them and looking out for their best interests.
Max Shachtman (September 10, 1904 – November 4, 1972) was an American Marxist theorist. During his lifetime, he evolved from being a Leninist associate of Leon Trotsky to an anti-Soviet social democrat.
Trotsky became involved in revolutionary activities in 1896 after moving to Nikolayev (now Mykolaiv). At first a narodnik (revolutionary populist), he was introduced to Marxism later that year and was originally opposed to it. But during periods of exile and imprisonment he gradually became a Marxist. Instead of pursuing a mathematics degree, Trotsky helped organize the South Russian Workers’ Union in Nikolayev in early 1897. Using the name ‘Lvov’ , he wrote and printed leaflets and proclamations, distributed revolutionary pamphlets and popularized socialist ideas among industrial workers and revolutionary students.
Emma Goldman (June 27, 1869 – May 14, 1940) known as ‘Red Emma’, was a Lithuanian-born anarchist known for her writings and speeches. She was lionized as an iconic “rebel woman” feminist by admirers, and derided as an advocate of politically motivated murder and violent revolution by her critics.
Goldman played a pivotal role in the development of anarchist political philosophy in the United States and Europe in the first half of the twentieth century. In particular she incorporated gender politics into anarchism which, if at all, had only been hinted at by earlier anarchists. She immigrated to the United States at the age of seventeen and was later deported to Russia, where she witnessed the results of the Russian Revolution. She spent a number of years in England and in Southern France where she wrote her autobiography, Living My Life, and other works, before taking part in the Spanish Civil War in 1936 as the English language representative in London of the CNT-FAI.
In New York City, Goldman met and lived with Alexander Berkman, who was an important figure of the anarchist movement in the United States at the time. The two became lovers, and remained close friends until his death in 1936. With the influence of anarchist writers such as Johann Most, Berkman and Goldman became convinced that direct action, including the use of violence, was necessary to effect revolutionary change (see propaganda of the deed).
Goldman was widely believed by the authorities to have been involved in the planning stages of the Frick assassination attempt, but Berkman and the other conspirators refused to give evidence against her, and she was not charged in the indictment. Her defense of Berkman after the attempted assassination and her later attempts to win his early parole made her a marked woman and highly unpopular with the authorities who regularly disrupted her lectures. Berkman (or Sasha as she fondly referred to him) was released on parole after fourteen years in 1906.
In 1921, repression by the Red Army (under the direct leadership of Leon Trotsky) against the striking Kronstadt sailors left Goldman and other anarchists keenly disillusioned with the Bolsheviks.
===Hypothesis: Immigration always leads to anarchy.
We can make this hypothesis more explicit in the following form. Every large immigration movement leads to anarchy:
- The break down of social trust
- Failure of traditional institutions
- Actual failure to perform duties of office or employment
- Actual failure to perform civic duties appropriately, such as jury duty.
There is a Pew poll that almost everyone in the world opposes immigration into their country because it disrupts their society and culture. People recognize the breakdown of their traditional society. They know its bad. It means they can’t rely on the promises made by society for civil order. Thus immigration leads to anarchy.
The things that anarchy is neocons make direct policy objectives. Neocons want the breakdown of tradition and of bonds between people based on ethnicity. These are targeted by neocons. Thus neocons are trying to create anarchy as their objective. That makes neocons anarchists.
World Publics Welcome Global Trade — But Not Immigration
In both affluent countries in the West and in the developing world, people are concerned about immigration. Large majorities in nearly every country surveyed express the view that there should be greater restriction of immigration and tighter control of their country’s borders.
Thus neocons are against all people everywhere. Neocons are for global anarchy. They are against traditional society and all it brings for people everywhere. For themselves they can synthesize a traditional society using the wealth of the institutions they control. For neocons, traditionalism is something you have behind the closed doors of a think tank, investment bank, the top floor of a government office building, or the iron fence of an estate.
