We state that it is either a fool or a scoundrel who can support the current system in Russia. Most of the proposed "alternatives" contain, albeit under a different sauce, the same "values" on which today's power stands - hierarchy, relations of domination and subordination, competition, greed, etc. It is not difficult to see that these "values" defects social life of our country.
Anarchism appeals to the thirst for freedom and equal collectivity.
A direct action, a physical attack on institutions and symbols of power, is at the same time an act of rebellion and confrontation with oppressors and a symbol that, having reached society, becomes a strong, loud call to fight. It is the point where the existential meaning of the act of combating converges with strategic considerations (with attempt to involve more people in a direct clash with the system). That is the basic goal of insurrectionary anarchism as a practice.
There are also more individualistic interpretations of the meaning of "insurrectionary" actions - some understand this action as complete self-worth, without having the task of influencing "ordinary people". However, this interpretation is not for us.
Honest minds of the Russian anarchist movement have long noted that a significant array of anarchist activities of our era is rather an imitation of activity. The most sorrowful type of imitation is an imitation of an organization.
A dozen years ago, when we were young, many of us realized it. But unfortunately we were almost completely deprived of worthy mentors and were forced to “build a house from its foundation". It was the time when we concluded that affinity-grours,informal unions, individual and collective initiatives are more effective than "chimerical" organizations.
