  1. The argument here is against the social organization of society, NOT against government. The attempt to project a society with no rules, no division of labor, no administration of tasks is not utopian. It is the consequence of self-indulgence who cannot move beyond their reflection in the mirror. Anarchism is the disputation of anything without any foundation as to what a future scenario establishes. How does water get to the spigot? How do the elderly survive without social support? Contemporary anarchism is based on anti-social behaviors and is more nihilism than anarchism. Spanish anarchists reorganized society along the lines of the ideology and the CNT reflected this. Today, it has no social base .

  2. You did see that the podcast is self-described as ‘anti-civilization,’ no? The fact is that these amenities that you’ve mentioned are created and sustained by systems of domination. Real anarchy resists even technocracy.
