- on anarchists and oligarchs

Ah-ah-ah, ha-ha, ho-ho!
 
Fly into the streets! All who are still fresh and young and not dehumanized - to the streets! The pot-bellied mortar of laughter stands in a square drunk with joy. Laughter and Love, copulating with Melancholy and Hate, pressed together in the mighty, convulsive passion of bestial lust. Long live the psychology of contrasts! Intoxicated, burning spirits have raised the flaming banner of intellectual revolution. Death to the creatures of routine, the philistines, the sufferers from gout! Smash with a deafening noise the cup of vengeful storms!

Is this the voice of the revolting, the oppressed, the unemployed, the disenfrachised - the jobless, the state-dependents, the unions, the students, the working-classes, the poor, the minority? Is it the call-to-arms of those fighting the old order, the oligarchs, the Bullingdons, the capitalists, the bankers, the bourgeois?

No.

Tear down the churches and their allies the museums! Blast to smithereens the fragile idols of Civilization! Hey, you decadent architects of sarcophagi of thought, you watchmen of the universal cemetery of books - stand aside! We have come to remove you!
 
The old must be buried, the dusty archives burned by the Vulcan's torch of creative genius. Past the flaky ashes of world-wide devastation, past the charred canvases of bulky paintings, past the burned fat, pot-bellied volumes of classics we march...! Above the vast expanse of devastation covering our land the banner of anarchy will be proudly unfurled. Writing has no value! There is no market for literature! There are no prisons, no limits for subjective creativity! Everything is permitted! Everything is unrestricted!
 
Anarcho-Futurist Manifesto, 1919, by A. L. and V. L. Gordin

Where anarchy and the market meet: Smash everything, you neo-anarcho-liberals!
