In the words of Social Anarchism’s dedicated editor Howard Ehrlich, it requires the development of “anarchist transfer cultures,” the perspectives and practices by which we sustain the move beyond state capitalism to anarchist social relations, building them as we go. Ehrlich describes anarchist transfer cultures in these terms: A transfer culture is that agglomeration of ideas and practices that guide people in making the trip from the society here to the society there in the future… As part of the accepted wisdom of that transfer culture we understand that we may never achieve anything that goes beyond the culture itself.
A is either B or it is not B, with no possibilities in between. We all know that the real world does not work like that. Worse, logic is never swayed by feelings or intuition: if all A is B, and all B is C, then all A is C, whether you like it or not. The new discipline known as “fuzzy logic” is just beginning to adjust the concept of reason to the findings of cognitive science, but it has a long way to go. It should be clear by now that a fundamental cause of anarchism’s shaky foundation (a problem it shares with most other products of Western philosophy) is dichotomization.
