An Introduction to Tribal Anarchism - Part 1 of 2 (ATS/VOR Radio interview)

Keith Preston discusses the concept of tribal anarchism. Topics include:

* The origins of the political philosophy of anarchism and its critique of the state as a uniquely and inherently parasitical institution;

* The three major traditions within anarchism: the leftist-socialist tradition, the Anglo-American libertarian tradition, and elitist-individualist "anarchism of the right";

* The many different sects and tendencies within anarchism and how the meta-political theory of tribal anarchism allows for a synthesis of these divergent strands;

* How anarchism might work on a practical level and how common objections to the anarchist viewpoint might be answered;

* How anarchism properly understood is a polar opposite political philosophy to the prevailing totalitarian humanist ideology of the existing Western ruling classes;

* Why the Left is currently a greater threat to anarchism than the Right and how "political correctness" is a continuation of the tradition of authoritarian leftism associated with Marxism.
