The Virtues of a Disorganized Resistance

American opposition movements have always focused on the notion of organization. It has always been their goal to organize the people. Their hope has been to wield the collective power of the disaffected, downtrodden, and exploited as a single unit against the concentrated power of the ruling class. While their hope has been noble, their methods have been foolish. Organized resistance has many drawbacks. These drawbacks have seldom been discussed by the opposition. We believe that the only effective resistance is a completely disorganized, decentralized, and leaderless opposition.

While, on the face of it, this claim may impress you as absurd. Of course it seems absurd! It is counterintuitive. Never the less, it is the ONLY method of resistance that will work within American society. We will explain why organized resistance has never worked in the United States. In addition, we will promulgate a new formula for effective resistance.

Why has organized resistance failed in the United States?

There are many reasons for the failure of organized resistance. The two primary causes of failure are intimately connected to the culture of the United States and the political system laid down by our nation's founding fathers.

The Cultural Cause

Americans, culturally, are anarchists. Few Americans realize this. Most Americans have a false understanding of the term "anarchism." However, upon examining the beliefs of your average American, you will find that most Americans: do not trust leaders, do not trust government, wish to be left alone, value their privacy, think of themselves as independent from society, do not believe that there is a systemic solution to their problems, believe that others should be free to do what they choose, provided they do so in private and do not harm others

While it is undeniable that political culture in the United States often speaks to the opposite of the above list, it is also undeniable that most Americans register as neither Democrat or Republican and most Americans do not vote. Thus, despite the political culture, most Americans choose not to participate in it. This is not only due to their belief that the American political system is hopeless, but also is due to the cultural clash between the wider culture and the political culture.

Any attempt to organize large numbers of Americans into a single political movement will fail. Any attempt to create an organization led by a strong group of leaders will fail. Americans reject submersion into the collective. In a sense, Americans are anti-collectivists.

The Political Cause

American political culture is not ideological. Politicians attempt to draw ideological distinctions between the two major parties, but these distinctions are a matter of splitting hairs. The only significant difference between the two political parties is the degree of compassion represented by the rhetoric of the two parties. Compassion is not a political concept. Compassion is an attitude. Thus, the two parties differ, primarily, in attitude and not ideology.

Despite this, there remain two political parties. One is prompted to ask "why?" If each party is basically the same, with respect to ideology, why do they not merge into one party? The answer to this question is best found in viewing each political party according to its true nature. American political parties are, for all intents and purposes, organized crime units. American political parties have more in common with the Mafia than they have with their counterparts in more democratic societies. Like Mafia, each political party competes for control of territory in order to maximize the benefit to their business constituency. Like Mafia, the political parties attempt to mold the system to maintain their positions and access to resources. Like Mafia, the political parties force the average citizen to pay "protection" under the threat of violence (taxes). Like Mafia each political party uses the "protection" money collected for its own advantage.

By defining our political system in terms of the "majority" and the "opposition," our Constitution enshrines this two mafia system into law. Each Mafia passes laws to exclude new comers from the game while focusing the rest of its energy in destroying the other Mafia.

Thus, any resistance movement that chooses to become an organization is in competition with these Mafiosi. The deck is stacked and the power of the state, wielded by these organized crime units known as the Democratic and Republican parties, will waste the time and resources of any newcomer. A newcomer can only succeed by rejecting the political system, draining its resources, and undermining the rule of the state.

How is disorganized resistance superior?

In some societies, dissidents become heroes. In American society dissidents are systematically slandered, libeled, harassed, and villainized. If they become successful, they are murdered (e.g. Martin Luther King, Malcolm X). In the American experience, movements that look to leaders are decapitated. Leaders are a liability, not an asset. Organizations can be (and are) infiltrated. Organizations can be taxed. Organizations have legal responsibility. Organizations have membership lists and lists are wonderful tools for the oppressor. Organizations take on a life of their own. They struggle to exist and their continued existence takes priority over their mission. Organizations attract opportunists, power mongers, and attention seekers. Organizations tend to exploit their rank and file for the benefit of their inner circle. Disorganizations share none of these defects.

Bureaucracy cannot comprehend disorganization. Disorganization is invisible. The asymmetry of the relationship between organization and disorganization favors disorganization. Organization depends upon planning. Planning requires predictability. Disorganization cannot be predicted. This leaves organization at a disadvantage.

Organization requires a supply chain. Supply chains can be disrupted. Disorganization depends only upon the resources of its members. Supply chains that do not exist cannot be eliminated.

Disorganized movements rely upon swarming. Swarms are difficult to defend against. If you cut a swarm in half, you have two swarms. If you eliminate one of the resulting swarms, you still have a swarm. Disorganization breeds. Organization grows. The many and dispersed are a more difficult target than the large and concentrated.

Organizations takes their steps by design. If the design is flawed, the organization fails. Disorganization relies not upon design but upon evolution. The motivating notions of disorganization are memes. Memes evolve and memes compete. This process improves the motivating notions of disorganization. This process produces multiple courses of action. While some may fail, others are likely to succeed. Taken as a whole, disorganization is more likely to succeed.

The important thing to remember is that it is easier to destroy than to create that which is designed. Thus, the cost to those who lose the manifestation of their design outweighs by leaps and bounds the cost it takes to destroy it. That which evolves is cheap and when an effort is created to destroy the evolved entity, it merely mutates and evolves again, adjusting to the new conditions. As a process that fosters evolution, a movement based on disorganization will continue to survive, evolve, and expand without cost. The resource constraints placed upon the designed (e.g. government and corporate) and those absent from the evolved (a decentralized and disorganized opposition movement), favor the later.

The limits of disorganization

We do not propose a complete absence of organization. Instead we propose a disorganization of units. Units can be as small as a single individual, or as complex as cell of individuals working together. Cells may be internally organized, but they should not be statically organized cell to cell. The movement should have no commander. It should have no central committee or governing body. No global plans should be made. The modus operandi of each unit should be to think globally and act locally. Ideas, strategies, and tactics should float freely and compete as memes within the medium of the collective conscious.

Conclusions

We need to construct a disorganized movement. You need not apply to join. In fact, it might be better if you did not contact anyone except those with whom you wish to form a unit. Your ideas, strategies, tactics, and lessons learned should be spread anonymously or by word of mouth. When you act, should you decide to act in resistance, attribute your actions to "the Resistance." The growing din of disorganized disruption will be felt as an earthquake. There will be trembles. There will be pre-shocks. The tension will mount and, in time, there will be an earthquake. When that earthquake strikes, the organized edifice of the oppressor will fall like a house of cards.

This site makes an excellent counter point. I will take some small bits and post them here, but really, the whole site whould be read in entirety.

"Make no mistake, slowly but surely we are being enslaved and exterminated. Men who lead moral lives of honor, courage, and integrity are a dieing breed. We are offered only contempt, scorn, ridicule, and of course, blame. Our children have been taken from us. Our labor is no longer our own. Many of our compatriots languish in prison, or worse, have taken their own lives. Our very thoughts are under attack.

Freedom, it seems, slips from our grasp.

We constantly read of the strategies and tactics of our enemy. Cognitive dissidence and the dialectic are always at work against us. Political arguments are reframed, language is redefined, and so society reengineered. The lie is now the truth. Murder is choice. Evil is good. Death is life. Freedom is slavery. Slavery is freedom. And much, much worse, we are told and expected to be happy about it.

And we do nothing.

No more.

This victory of serenity essentially fails to attend to the very source of feminist power - the law itself. As long as females have such great power, men will never find the serenity we seek.

"And because governments have massive power in comparison to ordinary individuals, they will tend to use this power to create more and more societal disharmony with much success. Of course they will do this. Why? Well, because governments, and millions of government workers, benefit from disharmony, and they are not going to use their huge collective force to undermine themselves which reducing disharmony would do"

"And so governments can justify (and, hence, finagle and extract) much more money from the people in order to acquire more police officers, more prison officers, more probation officers, more welfare officers, more lawyers, judges and other courtroom staff, more psychologists, psychiatrists, therapists, doctors, nurses, social workers, remedial educationalists and, indeed, even more street cleaners! and, of course, many, many more bureaucrats to monitor and to exert control in all of these areas."

This whole post should also be read.My browser went fritzy before I got to the solution part of the article.

Not to say that disorganized resistance is not effective,but to ask how we can change the law in a disorganized state?

Well done spock.

The feminists have succeeded to such a large extent because they use guerilla tactics,ie using our own sexuality against us. We could do a lot just by mimicking thier tactics.

My post on obstructing shopping lanes comes to mind.Blocking traffic during busy times might also apply.

The Virtues of a Disorganized Resistance

Good points all, because when you look at the big picture, with government being the biggest player on the block, they are incredibly efficient at smashing dissenting organizations to bits. We just have to look at history to see that this is the case. Government smashed the Branch Davidians and Freemen to bits ( I didn't really agree with either of those organizations, but you never really heard their side of the story, as history and stories are only written by the victors).

Yet at the same time, look at how much trouble government had with disorganized forces. Vietnam was a good example, and Afganistan/Iraq are looking to head that way also. Government trying to crack down on disorganized resistance is like trying to grab water. The tighter your grasp, the more the water will leak out of your fist. Eventually the laws are going to anger a critical mass of people, and a revolt or succession will occur, hopefully a peaceful one.
However, with the way government is now, I wouldn't bet on that outcome.

[quote]Disorganizated resistance is the only viable response in the face of a massive system designed to crush any organized resistance to it. No number of MRAs and MGTOWs as a group can stand up to the power of a central regime.
However, what has proven highly effective is gueralla warfare, small groups or individuals who act only in their self interest.

Now they can try and imprison millions of dissidents but that never eliminates the dissent or the resistance.
Nazi Germany tried it with labor camps and death camps, the USSR tried it with Siberian exile and labor camps. These societies never managed to snuff out the resistance movement, never managed to silence all the voices of disagreement.

Guerrilla and underground warfare are the way to go, a termite can bring down a building from the inside out, whereas a large bull charging the building may not even leave a dent.

BTW, Changing the law is not going to be possible, those who are in power and desire to do so will simply change all the rules such that some laws cannot be undone in a democratic system.

That's the Achilles heal in these mass movement arguments, that simply put if we can get enough members and enough numbers we can get the laws changed. But the people who are calling the shots may simply arrange it such that you don't have a democratic system any longer and hence cannot change a thing.

I personally believe we are already long past that point of no return, we passed it back in the 1980s when more and more women started to gain the ears of the politicians who then co-opted the feminist movement to promote their own agendas.

The deck is not only stacked against us, there isn't even a deck they're dealing off of any longer![/quote]


I totally agree with you.

Organized resistance, if there was any, would be crushed by the government.

Our best alternative is to take all we can from society, work just enough for ourselves and disconnect from the matrix if we can.

People like plumbers, electricians and all crafstmen should raise their prices: no plumber, no water.

And I see not the relevancy to marry and have children on a planet that`s already overcrowded.

With time, I have become more disconnected, acting like an amused spectator.

My advise would be, for young men: stay away from what will destroy you (marriage and kids) , live only for yourself and try to make the best of a life that has been dulled by mounting bureaucracy.

I know, for sure, that if I could live my life again, I would play it differently, keeping my sweet freedom only for myself.

And you don`t even have to sacrifice sex if you chose to really LIVE.

Nice post Rebel! Can you clarify what you mean by the last sentence: And you don`t even have to sacrifice sex if you chose to really LIVE.

Thanks!

The Virtues of a Disorganized Resistance

Anyone expecting a revolution from men...can pretty much forget it. Every time the Govt is in a tricky situation where its covet mafia tactics are about to be blown....they will simply push the women in front. Most of the men will be paralyzed and will accept the Govt. sanctioned slavery as a part of life.

This is a new kind of war. Generally, throughout history, men have shown great courage and determination in over throwing other men through revolt. Nowhere in history there has been a war which pitted men against women.

Now to over-throw this dictatorship men will have to stand up against women first. And even before that men will have to battle their own lust for women. Daunting task as it seems.

The way it is now, men will silently go extinct obeying women rather than giving up on sex and putting up a fight...I don't see that changing anytime soon no matter what strategy we choose....Pathetic!!!

The only salvation may come (if ever) from the sphere of technology. The invention of a lust suppressing drug for men or high quality VR sex toys or anything that will defuse the sexual power women have over men, will completely tilt the balance in men's favor. The question is whether the Govt and women will ever allow such a commodity to be available for the common man which will render women absolutely useless? Only time will tell.
