Anarchy is an awkward topic.
Whenever I am asked, "What are the Arès Pilgrims?" I reply in two polysemous words which people feel
as conflicting , "An anarchy of penitents," and in my questioners' eyes I can see
fear, or enthusiasm, or embarrassment; I can seldom
see peace of mind.
Nevertheless, The Revelation of Arèssays,
You will not be a leader for anyone (16/1), You
will never give orders to anyone (36/19).
which is the definition of anarchy.
But we live in the course of time (12/6), changing
our lives (30/11) can't help but be gradual.
Moreover, many an Arès Pilgrim, whose job is a power,
can change it into knowledge and responsability and
never lose his or her job.
As they are naturally prophetical, the
small remnant (24/1, 26/1, 29/2, 33/12), who are
the changed world in its early stages, will keep
on extending in depth and width following up The
Revelation of Arès's teaching developed by the eldest
brother (16/1) or just prophet (xxxvii/2),whose word is the Word (i/12). The small
remnant are to remain the epitome of the the
community layout of the small units of humans, most of
which will possibly consist of real penitents
and anarkhists (no leaders for anybody), whatever
affinities families they will belong in. In other small
units — as freedom shall be respected — organizations will
be non-Aresian and varied, but will tend towards anarkhism
as a result of their community smallnesses.
Anarkhia, an ingredient in the achievement of The
Revelation of Arès, cannot be introduced into the
big masses, whose peace and order are just based on
political powers and laws. Anarkhia as well as
penitent life in joy and festive
mood (Rev of Arès 30/11) is only possible in small
units of humans. Therefore, it is but towards the breakup
of the big masses into small units of free
humans that our action line in public affairs can be
conceived. We reject politics, which continuously pursues
power, makes laws, offends against freedom even in
democracies, which are rule by elected ones over a
majority of voters of the other side + nonvoters.
An anarkhia (Greek ἀναρχία) is a society organized and
managed without any government, in which no one claims to
have power over anyone. In 1840 Proudhon said, "Freedom is
anarchy, because it does not agree that willpower rules,
but it agrees with law's authority, that is, it agrees
with necessity." We can accept this statement, if the law
mentioned by Proudhon is the coming Law (Rev of Arès
28/8), the widespread practice of love,
forgiveness,peace, spiritual intelligence
(32/5) free (10/10) from all prejudices, that which
The Revelation of Arès calls penitence.
Élisée Reclus said : "Anarchy is the greatest expression
of order." Leo Tolstoï, also an anarchist, said about
social ethics : "(Only) private revolution, the daily
metamorphosis (penitence) of every individual
should be the rule in society." Jacques Ellul said about
Christian religion, "Churches' conformism and conservatism
either social or political, pomp, hierarchy, the so-called
Christian moral standards, law system, Churches'
dignitaries' authoritarian Christiany, etc., that is just
the social institution of Churches. That is not Christian
faith, at all. So anarchists are right to deny that
Christianity." Every one of these authors and many others,
whom I can't mention, are very much like The
Revelation of Arès on many a point.
The Revelation of Arès says, Just be One in
yourself! (Rev of Arès xiv/1) and by that it means
that the Universe, creatures and their Creator
are just One together. The Creator even hears
the rock shouting (xiv/6), which then has life
though it is different from what science calls life:
Life (24/5) in its universal extension. If as
things stand a present the man, the star and the Hand
of God (xiv/9) are not One, its is
because the Father has made the Child free
in His Image and Likeness (Genesis 1/26) and
because the Child has freely made its religion, politics,
power, law and culture breakers of Oneness. So the
paradoxical piece of dust, that is the Mare that
stinks (Earth, xix/15), poisons the infinite Universe.
How can men love and understand each other, and how can
harmony permeate through men but also through men and
anything else, if different are the concepts of the
True (Rev of Arès xxxiv/1-4), the basis of reason
that anarkhia can manage?
The variety of human kinds of society and the unbridling
of moral debilities not only never treated or mended, but
also seen as normal and even inspired, is the root of
never-ending inconsistencies and conflicts. Religions, not
to mentions other domains, are now monotheistic — Judaism,
Christianity, Islam —, now different — Hinduism, Buddhism,
Taoism, Confucianism and so on — , and within each
religion a wide range of types. None of ecumenicisms,
which are authoritarian themselves, will ever be able to
correct that. Faith variety kills the main Truth,
which achieved Good is, to which everything is
destined to go back. Politics heads up other forms of
religion. In brief, the world has gone off in such a way
that all of intelligent people questing for
unity, whatever culture they may have, are aware that
anarkhia is not an ideology among others, but it is
mankind's primordial wisdom, that we have to find just as
we have to find Life (Rev of Arès 24/5].
Shankara, previously mentioned in entry #171 "nonduality",
said, "The soul is naturally pure, alert and
free." As long as a great number of humans have not got a
soul yet, disorder injustice, violence and the
powers that claim they can control them, but that actually
cause disorder, injustice and violence, are going to wreak
havoc on the world.
I see press, politic speeches, administration forms, codes
of law and religious sermons as barbaric songs filled with
noise, threat, roughnes. There jostle together
formal demands, controversies, praises, threat,
intimidation, pathos, suffering, enslaving, renonciation.
What am I to do then, if not do hope that I will regain the
True and its wisdom in anarkhia right outside the noise,
Moses was a leader for anyone. He was just a guide.
He appointed Aaron leader for the ones of the Exodus
people that wanted a leader, but he decided so
When anarkhia crowns penitence, the liberation,
the fulfilment of man and the end of the chaotic History
of powers will be near at hand. Anarkhia will have reigned
for some time when dawns the Father's Day (Rev of
Arès 31/8), when the several thousand year old
alternation of life and death is over, when Good
and Life (24/5) definitely come into existence
and the last ones who speak from above the eye
(xix/7) vanish like flabby aerolites. The tupha
will never go rotten (xix/11)anymore, it will bloom
like immortal glorious water lilies on the rivers of
Nothing can be better to the world than anarkhia, the
flower and fruit of penitence. The Good
world will be managed and well-managed, but anarkhic.
Let's set our sights on a world changed and
leaderless in spite of the sledgehammer arguments
bound to be inflicted on us ; we will be called insane!
Thereupon, the murderous brutality of historic anarchists
has forever stunned me. How could those murderers think
that to kill the mighty might ever stop the system from
replacing them? They were innocently unaware of the thirst
for power that culture has set in man; they were unaware
that only penitence can quench that thirst. Only
an apostolic long-term job will be efficient.
