Know Government: A History of Anarchy

Thursday, September 26, 2019, 2:00 AM - 3:00 AM

Examine anarchism through history and pop culture.

Current political discourse often focuses on what function the state should serve, and how to make it better. The question most overlooked is, "Do we need the state at all?" Rejecting the usual State of Nature and Leviathan arguments, anarchists have answered with a resounding, "NO!"

In this discussion, we'll look at the history of modern anarchism, and some of the tendencies under the black flag that have attempted to answer, "What do we need instead?"

Aadrial Phillips studied political science at Portland State University. She made it out with a degree, a healthy suspicion of institutional authority, and a belief that the state causes more harm than good. Before moving to Bend, she spent most of her time organizing with the Portland IWW and various anarchist affinity groups, and continuing her political education by reading everything she could.
