On agorism’s revolutionary superiority to other ideologies, I previously argued: “Agorism has the greatest chance of success because its proponents accept piecemeal victories, but primarily because agorists don’t succumb to the same loser-mentality as other econo-political ideologies.” Echoing these thoughts, the suburban anarchist recently echoed those thoughts, in a post suggesting that traditional anarchists can learn a few things from agorism:
The best thing that could happen to the anarchist movement as a whole, in my opinion, would be for every self-declared anarchist to start working with those around them that feel the same on building their own little vision of what society should look like
To which I reply: I think agorism as a revolutionary strategy has a far better chance of success than sit-ins and demonstrations. It re-invents the “invisible hand”. It’s micro-revolution. Incremental victory. Start by being 1% more free than you were yesterday. You can’t change the world for everyone in it. Admit that. Focus those for whom you can change the world, for whom you can make a difference.
If everyone were to start there, instead of going to some black bloc circle-jerk, I think we’d all be surprised at how rapidly we could effect real change.
