Anarchist (Care and Love) Starter Kit

For more extensive reading on how anarchism can change our language of business, we put together this four-pack of anarchist pamphlets:
Secret #29—Twelve Tenets of Anarcho-Capitalism,
Secret #43.5—What I Believe about Business and Anarchism,
Secret #32—It’s All About Free Choice, and
“Going into Business with Emma Goldman.”

Ari shares: Part of what continues to inspire me about Landauer’s work is his insightful argument to start where we are—to work with care and love to create small communities, right now, that would make real the kind of radical caring, inclusive, loving work and relationships we aim for. For Landauer, that’s what anarchism was all about. (Yes, there were anarchists about who were engaged, famously, in acts of assassination and attempts to tear down governments. This is not, as I’m sure you know, my interest. At all. It wasn’t Landauer’s either. He wasn’t really known for his humor, but he did flash a bit of wit on occasion. “Those anarchists,” he wrote, “are not anarchic enough for me.”) Landauer also, appropriately and importantly, understood that the work to make all this happen had to begin inside ourselves. Landauer helped me realize that I had to do my own work if I wanted to make anything else better. If we were able to make those sorts of personal changes, Landauer believed—and I agree—we could create new, more loving, more meaningful, lives:

"This world [we seek] can only be constructed from within. . . . freedom can only come to life in ourselves and must be nurtured in ourselves before it can appear as an external actuality. . . . what we are waiting for can only come from ourselves, from our own being . . . Whoever brings the lost world in himself to life—to individual life—and whoever feels like a true part of the world and not a stranger: he will be the one who arrives not knowing where from and who leaves not knowing where to. To him the world will be what he is to himself. Men such as this will live with each other in solidarity—as men who belong together. This will be anarchy."
