This is exactly what i was looking for, thank you for the rich answer! Arch Linux is in a way both intimidating and tempting. I'll for sure explore Arch or Manjero at some point, because it sounds like the perfect setup, but as of right now, mostly due to my limited experience with Linux, I'll stick to something simpler, and hopefully something lightweight. I hate preinstalled software from the very bottom of my heart.

Fedora sounds like a solid choice. Perhaps not lightweight, but it makes up for that in all other departments (and maybe i just need to calm down about weight, hardware isn't limiting..). I'll go get some sleep and read through your comment again tommorow, my thoughts are a little cloudy thanks to a good 24 hours without sleep.

Again, thanks a lot for your help! Hopefully others will benefit from this thread too.

I've been looking at Deepin, a Debian-based distro, simply because i love its looks (and, at the risk of sounding like a big idiot, looks is very important to me, especially when we're talking daily driver), but it isn't open-source as far as i can tell, or at least not fully, which is a deal-breaker... Cherry on top, it's Chinese-developed.

I'll see if i can find something similar, thanks.

Alright, if it's just about choosing whatever and finding what fits your needs, then I'll start with the one with the sleekest stock interface. Manjaro looks like a solid choice. I'll do some research until the weekend hits, and then install whatever i settle on. If anybody's got other reccomendations than Manjaro, fire away!

As Charlie said in The Great Dictator:

"As long as men die, liberty will never perish".

Infinite life is probably a very, very, VERY bad idea.

That's disturbing. Those pigs look more like military than police. Why the hell are they beating, kicking and arresting peaceful citizens? They have a right to vote and protest, as far as i know.

Do you know if any cops got in trouble after this? Nothing in that video looks right.

What, an anarchist from Copenhagen. That's a rare sight! I'll take this opportunity while i can: do you know where (if anywhere) danish anarchists organize? Is there any movement worth helping out?

I think that depends very much on where in the world this society would spawn. If anarchists organized and took over enough land to create a somewhat self-sustaining, although tiny, society within one of the peaceful western countries, such as Denmark, Sweden, Finland or Iceland (where there's plenty of empty land perfectly fit for this), US and its allies wouldn't dare to come near it. They would be bombing allied soil, and would be in shit up to their necks if they threw as much as one bomb. I doubt that these smaller countries such as Denmark and Iceland would care enough about a small anarchist organization to deploy military forces. They would certainly use militarized police, but, as evidenced by the free-towns around the world, police can be repelled.

Although some people might disagree, i found An Anarchist Manifesto by K. H. Zube to be a really nice introduction, although a little different than most anarchist litterature. It's also quite lengthy, so it requires some patience.

edit: Accidental Anarchist too.

As someone recently explained on here, i think it was ziq, anarchism is a process. Those who fought for freedom in the first place will continue to abolish a concentration of power and keep things balanced. Thought that was a nice way to put it.

That doesn't mean an anarchist society isn't possible, though, and shouldn't discourage people from attempting to organize one. Everything starts somewhere.

They believe in living an everyday anarchy in the here and now rather than pining for a permanent anarchy

How can an everyday anarchy be possible when we are, to be sure, being dominated by the capitalist state almost no matter where we go (unless we abandon society completely and go to live on our own, which would be hiding from the government, a sort of revolution in itself)? How can you be free when you definitely aren't?

I think you're absolutely right, though the issue is i can't find any of the anarchists that you would expect to be there. As i mentioned in my reply to ziq, everyone i've met there is civilians, and i have no idea where to find the original anarchists. I was thinking about going to a community board meeting in Den Grå Hal, a place for various stuff including some community debates and discussion. I could probably find some people there and connect with them.

Christiania is an interesting place, it's a great example of the power of the people when they come together and make an effort to defend their freedom.

Most people (everyone i've ever talked to there, and that's a good bunch) at Christiania is there to buy weed, meet friends, skate, listen to music or something along those lines. The original squatters and anarchists that built the free-town is nowhere to be found, apparently.

"It's so frustrating. I have no idea what I'm going to do," Braelen said as she approached her Mercedes. Her back window was shattered.

Well, i guess you're gonna get a new window and move on? It's not like you don't have the money to get your Mercedes up-and-running again in an hour or two.

Any other sources on this? The original source that's cited on the link apparently deleted the publication.

Not just incorrect, it's ideas made up from absolutely nothing to earn some cash, or in the case of religion, power, by abusing the ignorance of the general crowd.

The President of the Mesa Police Association said, after Mitch Brailsford was cleared of murder, that “We’re extremely relieved with the verdict, although not surprised. We believe Mitch Brailsford acted as he was trained to do, as all police officers are trained to do,".

Mitch had engraved "You're Fucked" into his rifle dust cover, on top of all of it.

Thanks for demonstrating how not to do justice, America.

It is pretty difficult to exploit, so i doubt it's something the ordinary person would have to worry about. Corporations, activists and journalists might have to finally move off of Windows, though.

Fuck yes i am, that documentary really felt like an eye-opener. Seems like a society without leaders and hierarchy is after all not some silly daydream.

I just finished watching this one about five minutes ago, and i have to say it is one of the most powerful documentaries on anarchism. Really lit a flame in me, thanks for sharing.
