God is an Anarchist

Reflections On Judeo-Christian Teachings

[Image: Book Cover for God is an Anarchis.]A collection of essays, focusing on how modern Judeo-Christian teachings embrace statism. The essays explore several Judeo-Christian interpretations from an anarchist perspective.

I explore several modern teachings currently embraced within the Judeo-Christian heritage. Most of the topics I examine are concerned with the philosophy of statism, but every essay examines the flawed foundation upon which a particular doctrine or belief is based.

My general thesis in this collection of essays is that the philosophy of statism, and the general philosophy of using force and coercion, is not only incompatible with human existence but incompatible with the basic Judeo-Christian texts. In many essays I offer an alternate interpretation of traditional texts.

Epigraph

. . . the suffering of one man is the suffering of all. Distances are irrelevant to injustice. If not stopped soon enough, evil eventually reaches out to engulf all men, whether they have opposed it or ignored it.
