Fight Against Fluoride Rally


The Victorian state government has announced that they will begin pumping fluoride against the will and best interests of Geelong residents on the 22nd June. The Geelong National-Anarchists are calling on all supporters, Geelong residents and other freedom lovers to help us demonstrate against forced medication.

WE DEMAND THE POWER TO DECIDE WHAT GOES IN OUR WATER!

Homo Corporatus

capitalism
A stickering campaign during the recent Yarra harvest festival weekend is the motivation for this article. The stickering was mainly conducted throughout the blocks of corporate high rises in the Southbank area of Melbourne. Southbank is home to such corporate buildings as HWT, Eureka Tower and of course Australand Holdings which is the corporate entity centred in the following story.

National-Anarchists aim to make an impact and leave a message with our stickers. The stickers themselves are intriguing and appealing; they catch the eye and leave a person wondering about the ideas that come with such a sticker. Needless to say, stickering in a maze of corporate buildings is putting out a message of anti-capitalism in the very heart of global capitalist turf. Not to mention that National-Anarchist stickers are much more exciting and thought provoking than tonnes of concrete and boring corporate art.

As a National-Anarchist placed a sticker in the zone deemed “property of Australand Holdings,” a young bloke in a blue shirt came over to inform us of how out of bounds we were. We didn’t quite understand what he was trying to say; surely he wasn’t equating our stickers to crass vandalism? Sure enough, we had taken a step too far…

John Worker: “You can’t put your shit there, this is ours…”
National-Anarchist: “What do you mean yours? Who owns it?”
John Worker: “We do, I mean, Australand… I mean… I own it” *pointing to the company logo on his shirt*
National-Anarchist: “Do you really think you own any of this stuff? Do you really think you’re represented by Australand?”

John Worker didn’t want to keep talking, he was slightly confused and had to finish his work, he’d hate to keep his boss waiting. However, the activists had been left dumbfounded – never before had they seen a worker of any description identify with and defend a corporate entity, let alone the company they worked for!

National-Anarchists thoroughly oppose the entire concept of a corporation. A corporation is a legal entity designed to protect individuals in their business dealings. National-Anarchists do not oppose buying, selling or bartering but we do demand that every individual be held accountable for their actions. If you are selling Microsoft products, you should not be able to hide behind the name and collective assets of Microsoft Corporation. Corporations are a major enemy in our fight against the establishment – corporations of all descriptions are guilty of exploitation, environmental destruction, consumerism and globalisation.

It is fascinating to see an individual pledge loyalty to an entity as artificial and damaging as a corporation. Though, it happens and in our modern, consumerist world it is increasingly common. What is this “corporate culture” and how do we combat it?

A person is first drawn to a corporation by the needs that are met by such an entity. Obviously, salaries are paid which puts food on the table and meets the essential and material desires of a person. A corporation offers incentive or the potential to grow as a person – learning new skills, becoming a respected employee, getting a promotion and “climbing the ladder” are all a part of the corporate culture. A corporation does serve as a sort of family and tribe for its employees; your workmates may support you in tough times, your boss supplies your needs and motivates you and wearing the logo of your corporation is like flying the flag of your tribe.

globalisation

A National-Anarchist can understand why people would want to be a part of a corporation. It is not about being selfish or consciously supporting a negative and destructive entity. It is about belonging, meeting your needs and prospering in our consumerist world. It is now the norm to spend long hours in the office, earn a salary and buy the newest products. It is now the norm that independence from work, being close to family and non-materialistic aspirations must come second to the corporate job.

This is of course not the case with all corporate employees, though it is a trend growing in developed countries – Japan is a scary example.

In Japan, to spend your entire life with the same company is expected. It is not uncommon that Japanese “salary man” will put more hours in to work than he would his family and even spend a small fortune on gifts for his superiors. Such loyalty to a corporation has even been compared to the loyalty of Samurai to their Lord in the Japanese feudal era. Salary men are even known to have tattoos of their companies’ logo on their bodies.

Can we foresee a world where each human is assigned a corporation where they will spend their entire lives? Will the “Fight Club” prophecy come true when the corporations name everything new in the world? It may be a logical conclusion to capitalism and globalisation but National-Anarchists work to stem the tide of corporate influence and expansion.

The corporation may serve as a tribe for the materialistic employee of the 21st Century but it is an unnatural entity that should not be coveted as an idol. The real “tribe” as given by nature to mankind is the family and the extended family and is built by ancestry, tradition, values and religion. This natural culture has been stifled and ignored ever since the first pluralism in Persia and Rome, becoming more evident and increasingly decadent ever since the Industrial Revolution. The only way to prevent humanity from descending in to a future of robotic materialism is by reviving the organic society as embodied by the natural concept of tribe.

Fighting the corporate culture begins with meeting the needs of an individual and their family. Encourage self-sufficiency and promote independence rather than reliance on an employer. Build on the community by encouraging the community to meet the needs of its members; education, employment and recreation should be readily available within the community. Promote the independence of the community and negate reliance on all outside influence; especially the State. Individuals wants to feel close to other members of their community and belong to their community; any “community” where the members are vastly different in culture is not really a community at all.

Homo Corporatus is a creation of our modern society, it is one destined to fail as all unnatural concepts inevitably do. We can decide if we will pursue a natural lifestyle as is the goal of National-Anarchists or if we will continue to progress down a path of crass materialism and excess that will only serve to destroy our environment and lead to the destruction of life as we know it.

National-Anarchism is a natural, social alternative to global capitalism and the corporate culture. If you wish to meet and network with National-Anarchists, contact us at our contact page.

Oppose Internet Censorship

censorship

Since 2006, the Labor Party (then in Opposition) have been pushing to implement mandatory internet censorship in Australia. The censorship would be forced upon the Australian people and internet providers would be forced to participate in the controls. When the Labor Government took power in 2007, they formulated the censorship plan as being official policy and Minister for Communications, Senator Conroy, has been directing the policy ever since.

The general public have been given little information on the plans. Needless to say, the Government have used the same methods always used by Government to take liberty away from the people. Mandatory censorship has been promoted as the only solution to the child pornography industry and the networking of paedophiles on the internet. The Rudd Government knows very well that to pull the wool over the eyes of the public, they can make the emotional cry of protecting the children. Anybody that opposes must support child abuse, incest and rape.

The Government knows very well that their plans will not solve the child pornography problem. Experts have made it clear that websites play a minor role in the distribution of child abuse material and paedophiles network using means that cannot be simply banned by Government. Any form of censorship will serve only to force paedophiles further underground and make the detection of paedophile networks and protection of children more difficult than ever.

The Federal Government has also made it easier for these websites to be found. The ACMA blacklist featuring the prohibited websites was recently leaked to the anti-censorship website Wikileaks.org. Senator Conroy initially denied the list was legitimate but now faces the embarrassment of making a list containing hundreds of websites of child abuse material available to anyone that would want to find it. What more could anybody expect? If something is banned, people will always find a way to make it available.

Besides of being notoriously inept at protecting children, the mandatory filtering opens up a whole new world of political control and nanny-statism. Senator Conroy has stated that political content will not be banned and that political content is protected by the relevant Act. Conroy can say what he likes, we know how politics works and we know that every inch we give to parliament, they will take a mile. What will begin with seemingly harmless banning of pornography leaves the Australian public wide open to creeping increases in free speech material being banned under any number of excuses. The National-Anarchists reject any parliamentary censorship of material and the reason we give can be summed up simply, “any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both” – Benjamin Franklin.

The video below is a recent episode of the ABC programme Q and A, the programme runs for an hour and most of that is members of the public criticising and questioning Senator Conroy on his plans to blacklist and ban what people can see on the internet. One individual reminded Senator Conroy that 1984 is a warning, not an instruction manual!

The Australian public deserve to be able to moderate their own consumption of information. Australian parents deserve to be able to choose how to protect their children from harm. The Government does not know what is best for us and by imposing this mandatory censorship they prove once again that they are not representative of, nor responsible to the Australian public. When tyranny becomes law, resistance becomes duty!

Welcome to National-Anarchists AUS/NZ

Welcome to the website dedicated to National-Anarchism in Australia and New Zealand. The website will feature news and information for and about our activism and the ideals we pursue. We have used various blogs and networking sites in the past to share our ideas, now we are excited to have our own website. Here you can expect to find reports, essays, interviews and exclusive activist related content of interest to National-Anarchists and radicals of all sorts.

The Australian National-Anarchists are a network of activists that advocate decentralised communities, economic self-sufficiency, environmental sustainability and cultural independence as an alternative to liberalism, globalisation and capitalism. We believe that capitalism is an inherently exploitative system that places profits before the interests of people and is antithesis to a healthy and free existence as an individual. We consider globalisation to be the destruction of unique cultural identities in this world and the creation of a bland, materialist pseudo-culture based upon corporate symbolism. We oppose liberalism in all its forms, especially the Orwellian political correctness and nanny-statism that is increasingly surrounding our societies.

National-Anarchists advocate autonomous local communities. Our communities would be economically self-sufficient and the participants would be able to pursue their own destinies and live according to their will. We believe in cultural and religious freedom and the right to self-determination based on these diverse and unique identities. We advocate an economy that puts the interests of the community first – promoting self-sufficiency and meeting community needs. National-Anarchists advocate entirely stateless societies; we believe in voluntary association and organic leadership without coercion.

National-Anarchists are organised throughout the world. Australian National-Anarchists work closely with our comrades internationally to support each other in finding local solutions to our global problems. We also work with various other groups that agree with our aims. Australian National-Anarchists have ties with the Mathaba News Network, New Right AUS/NZ, American Revolutionary Vanguard, CORRUPT, GetUp Australia and more. National-Anarchist activists are also involved in local volunteer organisations, serving their local communities with real action.

National-Anarchists are involved in community activism, political demonstrations, self-sufficiency and permaculture projects, various political workshops and many more projects that promote and advance our ideas and values. We look forward to more people becoming involved in our network and helping to create a better alternative to the current trend of global capitalism.

Thank you for checking us out, stay tuned for much more to come!
