Wherever power is, the corrupt will be drawn to it by an irresistible magnetic force. So the only answer is to reduce the scope of power everywhere. That’s why I’m drawn to anarchism.

Precisely this. I see anarchism as necessary for our survival. The only way to a truce in our political and cultural wars is to lower the stakes by spreading power so thinly that no one can gain enough to blow up the world.
