I recently listened to an entertaining segment on Free Radical Radio, episode 71 about anarcho-monarchism. Turns out it traces itself back to the venerable J.R.R. Tolkien, and this is from the private letter the anarcho-monarchists now treat as a foundational treatise:
“My political opinions lean more and more to Anarchy (philosophically understood, meaning the abolition of control not whiskered men with bombs) — or to ‘unconstitutional’ Monarchy. I would arrest anybody who uses the word State (in any sense other than the inaminate real of England and its inhabitants, a thing that has neither power, rights nor mind); and after a chance of recantation, execute them if they remained obstinate! […] Anyway the proper study of Man is anything but Man; and the most improper job of any many, even saints (who at any rate were at least unwilling to take it on), is bossing other men. Not one in a million is fit for it, and least of all those who seek the opportunity. [...] Grant me a king whose chief interest in life is stamps, railways, or race-horses; and who has the power to sack his Vizier (or whatever you dare call him) if he does not like the cut of his trousers. […] There is only one bright spot and that is the growing habit of disgruntled men of dynamating factories and power-stations; I hope that, encouraged now as ‘patriotism’, may remain a habit! But it won’t do any good, if it is not universal”
For the record, I consider this to be a wonderful bit of cookiness and am willing to defend it not politically but aesthetically. Anyway I take it that, in classic Internet fashion, some nerds from 4chan or reddit have latched onto this (overlooking the whimsy and the word unconstitutional), and determined to treat it as if it were a viable political philosophy, even basing a kind of constitution on it.
It's tragic what the limelight will do a funny idea transcribed in a private letter.
All this has little to do with anarchy as politics, but the fact that this exists, even on some remote corner of the Internet, does attest to the anarchy-as-chaos of the world.
