Wooden Shoe Books
is a bookstore located on South Street Philadelphia, specializing in anarchist and radical literature. You might remember its old location
are highly misunderstood identifications, often used in ad hominem
attacks to discredit people who argue against the dominant political or cultural narrative. Chances are, even Jesus would be called an anarchist
by today's standards. The Truth is radical
in any culture that promotes the idea that "perception is reality".
Needless to say, anarchism
is not a single concept, and it definitely is not the same as radicalism
. And if you are asking, I do not self-identify as an anarchist
or a radical
or as anything else for that matter. It could be said that the earlies anarchist themes
can be found in the works of Taoist
philosopher Lao Tzu, life and teachings of Jesus Christ, and many other religious traditions...
