    Statesman Blogger: Khalil Robinson

    Quite often in my writings and discussions I have described my outlook as being that of an anarchist. By this I simply mean that I believe all authority should be challenged and most authority eradicated. I subscribe to Rudolf Rocker’s belief, that anarchism is “a definite trend in the historic development of mankind,” and that “freedom is not an abstract philosophical concept, but the vital concrete possibility for every human being.” The reader should remember this position when they read my views on certain subjects. On my first writing I shall describe what I believe anarchism is, what it could/should be, and why it is pertinent in the upcoming discussion. The reader should also acknowledge that I am writing from the position of a United States citizen and due to this fact my most severe criticism will be directed against this state. The majority of the writings are going to focus on the Middle East conflicts and what I believe are the just solutions. Iraq, Lebanon, Palestine/Israel, Iran, and Afghanistan are the countries I will predominantly focus on. However, I also want to address the situations in Algeria, Somalia, Venezuela, Greece, Turkey, and possibly a few others. I must stress that all comments are welcome and hopefully together we can gain a common understanding, as well as a course of action to change the world and especially the United States position in it.
