Judging by the description on the official website, this might actually be worth going to, even just for the sake of curiosity :



Can't do any bad in a country run by the SVP/UDC
Quote:
The anarchist gathering in St-Imier in 2012 will be an opportunity to review the history of the anarchist movement, its ideas, its achievements, its hopes, its defeats, and what remains today; its own battles and those it shares with others: anti-militarism, anti-racism, anti-sexism, autonomous self-management, degrowth, education, feminism, internationalism, non-violence, etc.. A number of workshops and events are already planned: historical lectures, thematic conferences, theater, concerts, exhibitions, films, a book fair, a radio station, a libertarian camp, a self-managed market with organic products, workshops, restaurants, etc..
My understanding of anarchism was that it wasn't about any of these things, but rather the freedom from any type of rules other than the basic interpretation of natural law. But why miss out on an opportunity to ride one's favourite horse at such an event and call for things that will actually require more laws, regulations, state control, police and the persecution of those who disagree?

I suppose it's the old post-68 adage that persectution and dictatorship is a good thing as long as it's the good people (ie your friends) who are doing the persecuting. Thus numerous dictatorships could be propped up and supported in the name of freedom.

I heard on the radio last night while driving home, and again this morning that there is an anarchist meeting, with up to 3000 of the lazy worthless buggers , going on up in the Jura this week.
Why the Jura? Don't they usually meet up in Davos in January?

As summary Kant named these four kinds of government:
A Law And Freedom without Violence (Anarchy)
B Law And Violence without Freedom (Despotism)
C Violence without Freedom And Law (Barbarism)
D Violence with Freedom And Law (Republic)

Interesting stuff.
Having studied all these works in detail, I have come to the complete that he was indeed a complete Kant. I prefer the teachings of Mao, especially his spicy Wok recipes ...

Simply put: You don't understand anarchism

Quote:
There are many types and traditions of anarchism, not all of which are mutually exclusive.[13] Anarchist schools of thought can differ fundamentally, supporting anything from extreme individualism to complete collectivism.[2] Strains of anarchism have been divided into the categories of social and individualist anarchism or similar dual classifications.[14][15] Anarchism is often considered a radical left-wing ideology,[16][17] and much of anarchist economics and anarchist legal philosophy reflect anti-statist interpretations of communism, collectivism, syndicalism or participatory economics. However, anarchism has always included an individualist strain, egoist strain, and free market strain.[18][19][20] Some individualist anarchists are also socialists or communists[21][22] while some anarcho-communists are also individualists.

There is no direct link with separatism.

Anarchy offers the only 'true' expression of freedom for mankind!
