Anarchism in practical society based on trust.

Disclaimer: This system without the real system in it is completely imaginery and symbolic, and will not work, just like any other system we have tried through the history of mankind. It is as pure and naive as was Marx's communism or Hitler's perfect nationalist world, but mine's definately better (, see!?). I just tried to create a happier utopia to this constant dystopia we live in. It is alse WAAAAY shorter than Communist Manifest to meet the limitations of the youth that roams through the internet and "has no time to waste" on reading.

- It's a society based on trust. Nobody is watching or controlling you, there's no bureaucracy and no one keeps statistical records of anything. Therefore there's no need to compete or compare things competitivly. There is no higher authority and your conflicts are always your conflicts, and they are settled instantly when they occur in order to maintain somewhat peace. There's no grudge when you solve your problems instantly, and do not put your own balls under the hammer. There's no peer pressure in such situations, it is just to maintain your peace of mind. People are treated as intelligent individuals and are in charge of their own spiritual growth and physical well-being. The ideal is to constantly evolve and compete against yourself, to become a better human being.

-There's no actual jobs with salaries or bonuses, everyone works to keep their mind healthy and they do whatever they are truly good at, and have passion for. Everyone finds something they like to do, and everyone can do something, the problem in our current society is that we just try to force everyone else, especially those with lower level of interest or education, to do our shitjobs. These people too would have some potential at something else (for example a troubled teenager could have a passion for carpentry, which is suffocated for we need more people on the factories). There would always be someone around to teach you what they've learned. Main thing is to adapt to your changing surroundings, be flexible and it pays you back. You specialize on something and do that stuff for other's, and in exchange they help you out when you need it. Everyone lives in same sort of houses, that are build by those who have the will and the skill to build houses. Everyone owns everything, and nothing, but there's a possibility to have more too. In order to have more things than others, you must understand that it does not make you any better than others, and the materia does not represent you or your status on society. It is just mere materia, and you must be willing to give it away in situations when someone else needs it more (for example someone's house burns down, natural disasters, anything like that). If you truly understand this, you can "work extra" and earn more stuff/services/whatever than people around you. People around you do not envy you, for they know having more stuff does not make you any better.

-All trade, when needed, is basically exchanging, and it happens in everyday basis. You don't have what you don't need. You do not take what you don't want. You don't evern realize all of the exchange done, whether it's information, education, building a house, seeing a doctor, going through surgery, you just get help when you need it, and don't bother people if they have better things to do.

-Every individual is on it's own and in full response of itself. You'll have to survive and work and be a part of this group-of-people-not-belonging-together. If you face a lowpoint of your life, a disaster, house burns down, whatever, the collective will help you back to square one and ou can start over. It is all based on trust of how we are thrown into this world and all we have is other mortal beings. That is why we need to have compassion and understanding for those "weaker" than some. People live in small communitites that are free to form their own democratic "non-parliaments". Non, becouse they are just forming guidelines for what people should do next, every vote and opinion counts, and things are truly discussed instead of giving a minute to every matter. The "power" does not form an elite, becouse it changes on a monthly basis, and everyone gets to be "the king" and the poor. This sort of short cycle keeps all the different paths open and all the different ways of doing things on the table. People can always try new ways to solve old problems. There's a leader only for having one extra vote in case of ties, to solve the situation. People are told to do what in the name of utilitarism is right, for they are all in the same boat. People have their own areas of expertise, and their opinions are valued.

-Worst of punishments is exclusion from the "society". Excluded people can form another "society" outside, probably the main reason was they did not just get along with the people, and they can find other people they truly get along with, and start over. Other punishments are mainly small physical or mental punishments, and the threat of bigger punishment. A threat of violence is usually more efficient than actual discipline.

-Everyone has a freedom to believe or not believe in anything they want. There's just one simple rule: KEEP IT TO YOURSELF. Everyone's free to practise their religion and rituals in anyways they want until it starts affecting others. Philosophical argumentation and discussion between different religions is more than welcome, but it should focus on what unites religions and their message, instead of pointing out all the meaningless little differences, as we do here today.

-Of course this sort of unconnected and armless society would seem like and easy target to anyone outside, a short term war and invasion while conquering some other country in the mean time. Becouse of this, every community should have Abbie Hoffman's Steal This Book! (1971), especially the part with bombs and anarchy, as somewhat safty instructions. The point being that every person can be turned in to a stealth soldier, living in the woods with only maggots and dirt, letting the napalm rain upon the invaders and letting them crawl in their own intestines, screaming for help. Some shaolin warrior monk shit, you know. If some of the communions starts to seem a threat, it can be leveled back to square one (demolishing infrastructure, not harming a single people) to teach it a lesson.

-Every individual has the freedom to do as they please, believe in what they want, have all the friends and happiness in the world. They just need to acknowledge, that if they decide to harm others, the natural Karma or whatever will take care of it. Not becouse they should believe in Karma, but becouse they are aware of the world history, and KNOW that every shitty decision to harm others has alway been punished in the long run, this sort of temptation would not even occur. The main problem in our world today in my opinion is that we try to bury the history and repeat the mantra "we know better, that does not happen to us" until the shit hits the fan. If people are aware of mankinds past, the can reflect it on their everyday lives and learn from it.

This should not be too hard, in my opinion. Way simplier than we have to go through today.
