Why Anarchists’ should be gardeners…

When you read the words above, what picture does it conjure up? What kind of emotions was this person feeling when they wrote this?

All our actions stem from either Love or Fear.

Fear spreads like a disease. It can keep growing and growing, even cause an epidemic. People are easily controlled when they’re scared. Any historical turning point where people were controlled by fear?

Take someone who is racist; they didn’t grow up in a diverse community, so when they finally meet someone different they are scared. We are scared of what we don’t know. We can see this behavior in animals, becoming territorial.

Take someone who is rude; they’re stressed because they have a family to feed and bills to pay. Their fear and anger is aimed at others, when the real culprit is the system.

Yes but Naomi, what about the fat cats stealing the cream that we worked for? They too, are scared. They’re going to lose the money and power they’ve been collecting. This system is toxic and it will rot down to it’s core, becoming compost for the next life. In destruction there is also creation. But let’s remember that we can’t fight fear with fear.

Do you know what the strongest force in the universe is?

Love. Let’s rebuild communities. Plant seeds. Share resources. How do you want the world to look like?
