    Heey guys and girls i'm new here, but i was wondering if anyone noticed the message in the crossed "O" transforming it in to an "A".

    Its not just to make te word "losers" transform to "Lasers". The A within to O is also the anarchism icon.

    Anarchism is a form of government with:

     

    • "No rulership or enforced authority."[1]
    • "A social state in which there is no governing person or group of people, but each individual has absolute liberty (without the implication of disorder.) But is bound by a social code ."[2]
    • "Absence of government; a state of lawlessness due to the absence or inefficiency of

  • "Absence of government; a state of lawlessness due to the absence or inefficiency of the supreme power; political disorder."[3]
  • "Absence or non-recognition of authority and order in any given sphere."[4]
  • "Acting without waiting for instructions or official permission... The root of anarchism is the single impulse to do it yourself: everything else follows from this." [5]

I hope its isnt already posted somewhere, because (unfortunately) there is no search function and couldnt search fot it(?). 

I think this resembles a lot of the way Lupe is thinkin about the world, and how he is thinking about his ideal world.

It also (i think) refers to a couple sentences Lupe stated.

Like: 'I don't trust America, after watchin' Zeitgeist" in "all turnt up freestyle" from enemy of the state: a love story. 

In part two of zeitgeist there is something called "the venus project" (you can google it if you dont know what im talking about) which is using a form of anarchism too. 

 

I really love lupe and the message he is spreading. His thinking which he put in his lyrics very creativitely is really in the same line as mine. Thats one of the reasons i really digg Lupe.

He knows, and many others including me, knows the message of nowadays hiphop (you know that im talking about) influance this ideal negatively.

I wished more people would educate themself properly and start thinking like lupe.

@lupeforlife usually people do it when they have a oppressive goverment But when anarchism actually happens its chaos You seem to not understand anarchism at all, not tying to be offensive. Anarchy isn't the temporary removal of government and temporary chaos. Anarchy is a state of voluntary order (customary law) and self-governance (grassroots participatory democracy). Anarchism is about creating democracy from the bottom-up, and replacing capitalism with workers' self-management. Most anarchists today are anarcho-communists also believing in the abolition of money. Syndicates--enterprises democratically controlled by its workers--and consumers councils would set mutually agreed production goals, the products would be shared for free on the basis of mutual aid rather than being sold. This way you have production for needs, nor profits, so people don't starve so one man can make more profits (so-called market "justice"). Zeitgeist are a bunch of conspiracy theorists and technocrats, it's utterly unrealistic. But yeah, I believe lupe fiasco said his mother was "near anarchist", and since he doesn't vote and says you should always question authority he may be anarchist.

This is a misrep of what anarchism is. See the anarchist FAQ: http://anarchism.pageabode.com/afaq/index.html

Actually Anarchism is not a form of government. It is the absence of government. As Emma Goldman defined it: "Anarchism: the philosophy of a new social order based on liberty unrestricted by man-made law; the theory that all forms of government rest on violence, and are therefore wrong and harmful, as well as unnecessary." Happy Mayday!!

The Lowkey song? No, because I've heard the conversation before and I'm done with it. It's not provakotive or interesting. He's not covering anything that even FOX News wouldn't talk about.

did you listen to it

Well yeah, Lupe is a human being. If he had something insightful to say, I'd be more than happy to sit down and listen.

@MALIK You're right, Lu hasn't really discussed anarchy. I wish he would shed some light on his ideals and how he looks at the current situation revolving "illuminati", conspiracies and other stuff, he knows he's more than a rapper to us.

lol Kevner. Anarchy is cute though. I don't believe Lupe has ever written any extensive papers or interviews actually detailing what he means exactly when he talks about anarchy. So I can't really say much about it either way. Thomas Hobbes' Leviathan is a must read.

@LUPEFORLIFE the fact that it's banned from tv says enough.. realtalk

Being such a fan of anarchism, I'm surprised about the pricing of TRILLY&TRULLY..

I agree with LUPEFORLIFE but its still an Utopia though... A shift of the human mind to collective acting/thinking instead of thinking/acting as an individual. Besides we are all one and the same. When we all realize this consciousness i think were ready to start an anarchy... (some say this shift of consiousness will happen in the year 2012, but thats another discussion i guess) The TRILLY & TRULY 2010: BASIC INFO video on the blog mentions anarchy and Noam Chomsky.

I forget what the term is, but is like they say something that makes sense but they mean something else by it

LUPEFORLIFE, I think when he says I'm at where I'm at like an a in a circle, I think he's talking about the "@" sign. It makes more sense, but we both could be right.

@LUPEFORLIFE Most ppl commonly mistake anarchy for bedlam, but that's not the case. It's quite possible to oppose the current state without a descent into chaos. After all, "an educated population needs no control." And yea, American Terrorist is dope fo' sho.

But when anarchism actually happens its chaos so i don't exactly agree with it more anarchism lupe lyrics They tryin' to censor the influencer Just makes me sicker, influenza, (yeah) I'll abide by the censorship, Soon as they ride I'll get back on my nigga shit, Can't reverse [song lyrics reversed] The boy-game Advanced, complete the genesis, I've broke bread with societies menaces, I've dedicated sentences to the dead, and said hold your heads to my niggas doin' sentences,

If your familiar with Noam Chomsky politcal thoughts you must really like the song American Terrorist. I was planning , when im done reading the books im reading at the moment and i got enough money, to buy the book Hegemony or Survival: America's Quest for Global Dominance from Chomsky... I really find it important to educate yourself about the history of America and their agressive politics. "Im at where im at like an a in a circle" didnt even noticed this one damn...

Yess yess! I'm taking linguistics in University so I'm familiar with Chomsky and political anarchism and objectivism. Lu definitely injects his music with a good dose of power to the people.... I think it's dope and is needed.

Im at where im at like an a in a circle i dont think that there is anything wrong with anarchy. usually people do it when they have a oppressive goverment
