He was a lonely, hurt man who didn't know how to cope in a world that had turned its back on him. Your psychotic criminal is playing with knives. You afraid to die? Astrid I hope you just left an important syllable off that word, princess.

Just once let me be warm. Is there no star capable of sharing its fire with me?
I mean, no offense, she sounds more mental than I do. You almost gave me a hard-on with that thought. At least tell me this time your hatred will last more than five minutes. Eat everything except for hooves. Acheron Ooo, good eating tonight. I get a Daimon for barbecue. Can I go now, akri? Some invincible asshole is trying to kill me. Astrid Why should I? The only enjoyment I have in my life is knowing I piss off everyone around me.
If I were dead, it would make them all happy. God forbid I should ever do that. Astrid or Aphrodite, she is my Circe. Only instead of changing a man into an animal she has made the animal human. Oh, the pleasure of the pain. I have to say I enjoy every minute of it. Classic Liberals define capitalism as the social system based on the principle of inalienable individual rights, including life, liberty, and property.
This definition is the most common ideological understanding by Americans. It accepts the notion of a society comprised of a balanced relationship between individuals and the ruling order, ie the state. This Lockean notion underscores a kind of theoretical logical consistency that sits well for many defenders of the current economic system by placing our role as rational actors on a stage of somewhat human scale. Capitalism-as-exchange ends up being invisible in this definition of capitalism, and that is what makes this definition such an effective way to defend intellectually the relationship one has to capitalism.
Who could be against rights, the ability of individuals to enter into contracts with each other and the state, and our ability to keep the state in check? This is the way people can understand themselves within a functioning social order where their own invisibility within it is far less important than the obviousness of defending every aspect of it.
Dance with the Devil Quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Sometimes if it seems believable then it is believed. Finally, capitalism is defined in the US as the current economic system in which the means of production and distribution are privately or corporately owned, and profits are gained in a free market.
This is another economic understanding that differs from the Marxist one; it has a different mythological framework, one where capitalism-itself is the sun, rather than the exploitation of labor. In this view, capitalism never sets and each of us if free to sell ourselves as labor and buy cheap products shipped from around the world. The sun was placed there before the US was founded and since then nothing else has happened; everything here has grown under its light.
The freedom we have as consumers is the same as the freedom we have as investors. The connections these ideas have to reality wither in comparison to their rhetorical and propagandistic social power within US culture. This myth is powerful: Conscious class struggle in the US is a non-starter either strategically or ideologically, Marxist even marxist-with-a-black-flag rhetoric to the contrary.
Whether defined by anarchists, Marxists, political philosophers, or economists, the assumptions in defining capitalism frame the ability to think outside, against, and in relation to it. Since anarchists have assumed that they are somehow outside of capitalism, that it is something outside of their experience, their daily lives, and their principles, they have not had a coherent way to engage the liberal notions of individual rights, the economic view of society, or the positive perception that capitalist social relations have had on a preponderance of people.
Tensile strength is the amount of force required to pull something apart.
Most of us test tensility every day and, like many properties, we do not need to measure it to understand its effects. A romantic relationship ends because of a series of small inconsiderations. Workers grumble about an asshole manager but nothing happens besides the complaining.
A radical returns to her family home for the holidays even after she has declared her rejection of normative values and relationships. Tensility has a variety of axes: If we were to be generous in approaching an answer to the question of why the current economic system works so well emotionally, ideologically, materially for so many people, it would not be because people are naturally inclined towards shopping, petroleum, or property-rights but because they prefer greater tensile strength over less.
One desires a connection to the land that they live on that is greater than what a contract, bank, or surveyor can provide. One desires escapes from even the most pleasant situation one finds oneself in. The simplistic solutions of against approaches to these problems are brittle; they crack at the slightest change in orientation from their strength.
Critique weakens tensility rather than strengthening it.

The coordination of capitalism with the political apparatus, religion, and cultural expectations regarding relationships makes it seem natural. These relationships developed over time, largely by force, and are worth studying. What is the relationship between the people who go to the same market on Tuesday, the same church on Sunday, and attend the same concerts on Friday nights? Compare this to a group that meets once a year under a flag of truce and spends the rest of the year in open hostility. The anarchist project would be to engage with these examples not because they are worth emulation but because they demonstrate principles of tensile strength.

Tensility can be seen as the relationship between frequency, intensity, variety, and duration of encounters. In the first example we see relationships with relatively high frequency and variety, with low intensity with occasional high intensity around music that happens over a long period of time, probably years.
In the second example there is far less closeness with low frequency and variety but high intensity that happens over a long duration. As long as society exists on an enormous scale, the scale of million, 1 million, or even a hundred thousand, it is not possible to believe that it will not form a monopoly on violence, an ideological system that preaches freedom while practicing constraint, and an economic system that alienates for the purpose of expediency.
Perhaps anarchism is the recognition that a society worth living in should be of a scale within which one can actually have some kind of direct impact.

There is nothing that can be done to reclaim capitalism. Not only has it been the ideological foundation for the extraction of resources and the economic basis of human suffering for centuries, but the term remains a meaningless abstraction. At the same time there is the false opposition of anarchist anti-capitalists; pretending to stand outside capitalism the same way they would stand in protest outside chain stores or a gathering of world leaders reflects the weakness of individualistic action. In this essay there has been no definition of anarchism itself other than to acknowledge the inadequate definitions that have preceded us.
In addition, the positive anarchist principles  are an inadequate beginning to an anarchism of today; they are the elegant principles of another time. If anarchism is to face the challenging times ahead it must become the mongrel beast born of the disparate parts of its stately and negative origins. It must become capable of recognizing the complicated relationship between living in the world and against the world, and instead of erring in the direction of liberalism or asceticism. Anarchism is conflict without compromise, without rulers, and with the choice to engage with the world on our own terms.
The fight is more important than the outcome. While I generally support the idea of there being a distinction drawn between a system called anarchism and the desire for something called anarchy, with one being critiqued as an ideology and the other as something else, I also believe that it is a waste of time to confuse the terms with the distinction.
