Capital is reckless of the health or length of life of the laborer, unless under compulsion from society

Activate the Mechanism!: Twitter bomb time: #Liberalismin4words

Liberalism =/= American Liberals like Democratics. Historical liberalism refers to the existence of states and a capitalist economic system which is either independent of the state, or they are linked together in a corporatist relationship.
Conservatives are liberals in that they wish to perpetuate the liberal system of capitalism and states. People who are not liberals: Fascists, who wish to merge economic, cultural, and political life into serving the state. Anarchists, who wish to reconstruct politics outside of the centralizing power of the state and the exploitative power of the capitalist economic system. Communists who wish to do something in the middle depending on who you’re talking to. People who are still liberals: “Liberals,” “Conservatives,” and socialists, and anyone who exists along this gamut everyone feels so strongly encompasses politics with George Bush on the right side and like Dennis Kucinich on the other.
As anarchism is a political philosophy that opposes all relationships of power, it is inherently feminist. An anarchist who supports male domination contradicts the implicit critique of power which is the fundamental principle upon which all of anarchism is built. Sexist anarchists do indeed exist, but only by virtue of directly contradicting their own anarchism.
