I'm well aware of the difference between communal anarchism with underlying principals of self-order being bound by an ungovernable contract of free will within the limits of equality. I know the egoists were more centered on the free will of the individual.

But i'm curious about specific egoist or modern post-left/insecrrectionary anarchists who elaborate on chaos and its relation with anarchism.

What original anarchists and modern anarchists find chaos compatible with anarchy or anarchism?
The rejection of governmental or authoritative "chaos" has been mentioned a few times by social and individual anarchist authors. The mentioning of the term anarchist order by produn does not stop the notion of the order of chaos from making sense or for it to be considered to be compatible with anarchism as well. But little is known about their views of pure non-governmental chaos or egoist-nihilism being maintained through chaos as part or compatible with of any branch of anarchism more so the egoist and individualist kinds.

Some seem to view chaos as a means to take over society for anarchism. But this again has not been greatly explained in detail or commonly supported by all. Rather just a means of idealistic revolutionary destruction or protest destruction through moments of chaos.

What are some anarchists that embrace chaos or even mention it as compatible or synonymous with anarchy or anarchism:

Aside of Hakim Bey there has been:

Peter Kropotkin, Words of a Rebel, 1885 (Look at Bottom on link):


Does Stirner, ever do so?

Anyone else?

Read the text: "Chaos is beautiful'- Feral Revolutions* (The Anarchist Library)

There are many in fact who wrote on 'chaos' in a good way.
Altough, and I have done the same in past times, most have tried to explain the opposite; that Chaos is not anarchy or a part of it.
Ment to not scare the people away, the 'masses' if you like. Simply because chaos is in general seen as something bad and unwanted.
The same 'bad name' Anarchy has been given (by states, political parties, media etc), they have given to the word 'Chaos'..and we know better don't we? Don't believe the hype.
The truth is in the 'meaning' of the word itself and how we look at it, interpretate the word. Chaos is not the problem- it is perhaps our vision (or fear) on it.
I am ofcourse not speaking about the chaos of evil, of hate and facism, the chaos that is seen in wars etc. I am talking about the "chaos' of nature-life, that is always been there. A Rainforest an be seen as a big chaos, it can also be seen as a perfect harmony of it all living together in a big 'chaos' that in fact is the 'order of nature'. Should we fight against nature and life itself, or try to see why it is there, why it is useful.

In fact, as some have said; Order (not chaos) is the creator of opression, of control, power and many unwanted matters.
Chaos could also be seen as the thing' that attacks this opressed, fictive 'order' and frees it from it's prisons, therefor it is always been for liberty, for freedom, for nature and life itself, not for the chaos of opression, wars and competitions.
But the chaos of life, diversity, freedom etc.

One of the texts that pointed that out to me clearly is called: "Chaos is beautiful"
written by Feral Revolutions, published (and can be printed) also on (www)'the Anarchist Library'
This text shows, as in many cases, that what is important (mostly) is HOW YOU DO IT- not (always) what you do.
It doesnt matter if we discuss endlessly if action or theory is the 'best thing' to do-we need both.
It is no use to discuss strategies, when they will never appeal to many others, simply because we are all different, and all situations are as well. Just do it if you believe in it.

It is how you/we look at "chaos',and how you can use it, even embrace and love it as a true power of nature itself. Not what meaning you give, or think you can give to the word. Chaos itself will not care much about that- it is there and will continue it's everlasting battle against the orders of fake moralities, false politics, opressing regimes, exploiting companies, religieus lies. This because Chaos also creates 'order'- but an order that doesn't tolerate any totalitarian way, any opressed laws that hold back the 'new', but lives by all ways that can be found natural or human.
Chaos is our companion in the "Never ending story"- Like in that movie- against the greyness, emptyness that is growing and eating up our world steadily.
The same greyness that is cleaning our cities from all spontaneous life (like murals, posters, graffiti, stickers, free music, parties, people and animals..shortly life in all it's (real) expressions.
Only those who can be made into money can stay.
At the same time the planet is looking more grey day by day, seen from above, from the sky.
The beautiful 'chaos' of life- is now replaced by a system of control- that leads to the 'order' of exclusion, opression, greyness, death and alienation.
