“Anarchy doesn’t mean out of control. It means out of their control”

"Anarchy doesn’t mean out of control. It means out of their control” is a saying that has been printed on many images. “Living by Life: Some Bioregional Theory and Practice” by Jim Dodge, published in CoEvolution Quarterly, January 1981, stated:

“Anarchy doesn’t mean out of control; it means out of their control. Anarchy is based upon a sense of interdependent self-reliance, the conviction that we as a community, or a tight, small-scale federation of communities, can mind our own business, and can make decisions regarding our individual and communal lives and gladly accept the responsibilities and consequences of those decisions.”

Jim Dodge is known for his American novels, in addition to this popular quote about anarchy.

January 1981, CoEvolution Quarterly, “Living by Life: Some Bioregional Theory and Practice” by Jim Dodge, pg. 8, col. 2:
A SECOND ELEMENT of bioregionalism is anarchy. I hesitate using that fine word because it’s been so distorted by reactionary shitheads to scare people that its connotative associations have become bloody chaos and fiends amok, rather than political decentralization, self-determination, and a commitment to social equity. Anarchy doesn’t mean out of control; it means out of their control. Anarchy is based upon a sense of interdependent self-reliance, the conviction that we as a community, or a tight, small-scale federation of communities, can mind our own business, and can make decisions regarding our individual and communal lives and gladly accept the responsibilities and consequences of those decisions. Further, by consolidating decision making at a local, face-to-face level without having to constantly push information through insane bureaucratic hierarchies, we can act more quickly in relation to natural systems and, since we live there, hopefully with more knowledge and care.
