Garth Reseudo, the well liked Zorollian panarchist, was rather enjoying Montreal. The Canadians were a friendly lot and much more reserved and cautious than the Americans. They were slow to lose their temper and that made them the true fibre of panarchism.
Gandhi had appealed to Reseudo who read his books during his Washington stay. He agreed that one had to alter the heart and soul of one’s enemies before any true victory could be claimed. If you changed the heart of your oppressor, you changed their system. Gandhi failed in that he directed protest against the symbols of British imperialism and not the actual workings of the colonial system. The structures of class rule should have been altered not simply its symbols. Gandhi had laboured to construct an organization of passive resistance but the fault of that is that once one has created a strict organization with a myriad of rules there was bound to be a power structure even if Babu himself was against it. There would always be a director telling the masses to be at point A or point B at a certain time. There was no general and sincere spirit of the masses. That spirit was manufactured for them. Reseudo believed the individual to be the centre of any movement and not the masses as a directed entity. Masses should rise organically and spontaneously. In that fashion there would be no need for lawyers and leaders and repression control. Each individual should find contentment and reward in his or her space of anarchism, not anarchism of the violent Spanish Civil War kind but an anarchism born of the soul’s search for freedom. What else but anarchism could bring about freedom? Socialism led to an inevitable deterioration of freedom to the dictates of the dictatorship of the party. Fascism with its idiotic incorrect interpretation of history and brutality was designed to create a collective iron will and trample the individual. Liberalism was a thinly veiled excuse for economic exploitation hiding under the falsehood of the free individual will.
For his political views Reseudo had been exiled from his native Zorollia. Redbeard could not tolerate any resistance even if it was weak and weird. And what a surprise to learn from Montenez Eno Ergot, Redbeard’s nephew, was in Montreal and totally liberated from his corrupt ways and eager to topple Uncle Redbeard! In fact Ergot asked Reseudo to join him and help topple Redbeard but Reseudo made it clear his role was to be that of a panarchist leader. It was high time both Ergot and Reseudo return to their native Zorollia and take care of business.
