Non Serviam – Anarchism as a Dialectical Subversion Tool

"For “freedom” to be sensible, “man” as a concept has to have meaning and there must be some ground for believing in his “dignity” and “rights.” Who or what grants these “rights”? Nature? But nature demonstrates predators and prey, often with the weaker prey becoming the means by which the “fitter” members of the animal kingdom survive. Is that “natural” for human relations? On what basis does an anarchist (since 99% of them are atheistic, agnostic or materialists) derive these “rights”?

Given that there is no God, why should any other being be bound by your anarchic voluntarism principle? At this point, the debate always devolves into the utilitarian “happiness principle,” by which we are magically supposed to a priori divine this universal maxim to somehow be so."
