Interview 884 - James Corbett Discusses the Anarchist Ideologies

05/15/201418 Comments

via the Our Troubled Times podcast:

In this episode we are joined by James Corbett of The Corbett Report to talk about Anarchy. We will attempt to dispel any misconceptions and negative connotations of the term as well as try to understand what it really means and the implications of allowing the world to continue to be ruled by our bankster slave masters. Join us as we discuss what it means to live in voluntary association with other human beings and the revolution of thought which must occur in order to bring about a world without rulers.

    although a repeat, a most timely and pertinent piece.
    I find that as I learn and grow, both chronologically and intellectually, I’m definitely seeing that anarchy is the only system that can work where freedom and liberty are truly extant. This position is an evolution from a rebellious teen,husband, father,grandfather, I’ve had a bit of time to ponder. I’ve gone from a part of the “party” apparatus, trying to encourage people to vote and helping candidates, to not even bothering to vote!
    You Sir are a blessing to humanity, and your message of peace and personal responsibility are what is so desperately needed on this planet. I was greatly alarmed at your previous post “The Media War Has Begun”, because I have never seen or heard you so angry. I fully appreciate the volume of material you digest in order to create the beautiful platform that is The Corbett Report! Please do not let these subhuman evil manipulators get your goat, I was most pleased to see five of my favorite sites on that REAL news source list, high praise to yourself IMHO, and was disappointed that James Evan was not included! That just confirms to me that I am on the right path. Keep your cool Brother, don’t take it as an insult… consider it free advertising. This has to be the biggest back fire in the history of journalism. Curious, do you keep stats on how many visits your home page gets (before/after)?
    Take your own advice, laugh at the tyrants!
    Peace, Andy

      Hello amjamiediggins,

      Like you, i love peace, and wish for nothing more than to live my life without upsetting others, and i will even turn a blind eye when people get in the way or “become intrusive”.

      However, were do you draw the lines??

      Do you look at your handcuffs and say “oh, what a lovely two handed jewelry watch?” or do you view your “slave choker collars” as the latest in neckties??

      In my book, when you get attacked, and it appears the end result is going to be your demise, you have to stand up and fight, even if it is unequal fight.

      If you are just going to buckle to the system, you may as well work for them, and make “lots of money”

      • amjamiediggins says:

        Hello VoA,
        “However, where do you draw the lines??” Hmmm, well, personally I draw the line at my (imaginary) property line. You correctly surmise that I am a peaceful person, but I was a cub/boyscout, and the older I get the more the phrase “always be prepared” seems to pervade my consciousness and actions. I have a lovely 5 acres in the middle of nowhere, 20 minuets from BFE (a town of less than 4k). My little kingdom of dirt is situated in a nice little hood of 20 or so people in this square mile. We all get along as neighbors
        by treating each other with courtesy and respect, helping others when we can with our given experience and specialties. I chose this place to live 16 yrs ago, after being a city dweller (LA, Portland, Tucson, etc.)for the majority of my life.
        I also endeavor to be tolerant and kind, hoping for mutual cooperation. Experience tells us where and how far that goes.
        I am fully aware of the fact that I will never own my property, and of all the machinations conspiring to chisel away at my freedoms. I am well armed and proficient, and always packin… ABP (see above). I do not seek violence, and will not tolerate it.
        I’ve never made much $, and also never wanted for much. I learned early to work for what you want, only been hungry once in my life, and take great enjoyment in growing some of my food. Our chickens are a source of food and entertainment! I killed my TV many years ago and still do not feel deprived of info, never liked it.
        “The system” you speak of is much larger that you or I or James, and one ought to judge their ability and effectiveness before leaping to action. I’m not saying that it’s pointless to fight, I’m saying make the most of your efforts.
        Peace, Andy

        • amjamiediggins says:

          forgot to mention… All of my political activism was volunteer. It was NEVER about the almighty dollar, but rather doing what I thought at the time was the right thing.
          My attitude and opinions have matured and changed. I always reserve the right to be wrong.

  2. Serious warning(s) to James Corbett, and everyone else:

    1) The “anarcho-capitalist” branch (or supposed branch) of Anarchism is almost certainly a creation of the NWO. And, the so-called “anarcho-capitalists” repeatedly censor people who denounce it on their websites – like when I made the following comment:

    2) Everyone that seriously researches the NWO conspiracy and the true origins of the Communist ideology (, comes to the conclusion that Karl Marx was most likely an agent of the British Empire (a.k.a. New World Order). And, if you don’t believe me, listen to what Wester Tarpley ( and also Daniel Estulin ( have to say about it.

    3) Mikhail Bakunin has been denounced by Daniel Estulin as a British/NWO agent, in his series of documentaries on the Spanish version of RT (

    4) Pierre-Joseph Proudhon was a personal (close) friend of Karl Marx and also Mikhail Bakunin ( And, his “questioning” of private property came at about the same time as Marx’s and Bakunin’s calls to abolish it.

    Connect all the previous dots, and you might start getting a picture on what the true origins of the Anarchist ideology/ideal most probably are…

    • And, as an addendum (and, still as a serious warning that I make),

      Concerning only the “anarcho-capitalist” branch (that I see that you, James Corbett, seem to be a fan of – and, that several of the people that you have interviewed are also promoters of)…

      I have had someone high up in the LaRouche Movement (who are, by far, the best informed people there are about this whole NWO conspiracy) tell me, in a conversation, that the Libertarian Movement (obviously, the Austrian School/von Mises type of libertarianism – and, not the USA Founding Fathers’ type) is a creation of the British Empire.

      But, again, if you don’t believe me, you can all listen to the same Webster Tarpley interview that I linked to in my previous comment, where he also talks about this exact same “synthetic ideology”:

      (And, what this all comes down to, is that: when you’re promoting “anarcho-capitalism”, in the kind of planned economy capitalist society that we nowadays have – dominated and run by the Bilderbergers and the likes – you’re actually promoting the same type of neo-feudalist society that is the end goal of the NWO…)

  3. m.clare says:

    We can (and should) overthrow the ruling elite and redraw the political map. In time, new elites will appear and somebody won’t be happy with the location of the fence. The guy with the biggest mouth will win (until the guy with the biggest stick shows up). Competition for finite resources is what separates life from the inanimate; it’s the very definition of life.

    James will belong to one anarchical tribe and his neighbours will be free to belong to their chosen brand of anarchy. There will be conflict. There will be difference of opinion even within the tribes. Any of you ever belong to a Condo Board?

    There will always be hierarchical pecking orders. Is it possible that the pyramid is the most simple and stable steady state social structure? (Are there points for alliteration?)

  4. HomeRemedySupply says:

    I appreciate the re-run.
    It helps clear confusions while also stimulating a pondering of one’s own philosophies.

    Nomenclature is a funny thing.
    It’s evolution is a funny thing.
    It’s use in society often helps to shape that society.
    With more commonality of agreement society has in the definition of a term, then we see better communication and understanding.

    But what is cool!… We as freemen, as individuals, can create our own nomenclature to describe a concept. (No “authority” needed. ha!)

    Kids do this all the time…

    As kids, my brothers and friends made up the word “igamoe”.
    “Igamoe” describes someone who might be a little dumb on doing something or un-cool. Example: “Don’t be an igamoe!” “Oh! I was such an igamoe for doing that!”
    “Igamoe” was a lot better than curse words like “dumbass” or “bastard” or “retard”. It was gentler.

  5. VoiceOfArabi says:

    Hi James, I am directing these comments at you, please respond if you can..

    I don’t believe in labels and never did (my ethnicity is the only label i am forced to use – Anarchist is just another label)

    Currently, our problem is not labels or “systems” Our problem is whatever system we have in place is getting hijacked by group of people who are very aware of human nature..

    I agree with @ m.clare above. human nature is continuously driving us into “tribes” that requires “leadership” otherwise known as hierarchical pecking orders “pyramid”.

    This could be due to how we as Homo sapiens evolved, or it could be something else. I don’t know.

    But what i know for sure is.. even if you remove the current system, and install anarchist system in place.. The “Same Group of People”, will hijack that system, and bring about evil to mankind.

    We need to stop looking at the symptoms.. and identify the “man” behind the curtains.

  6. peace.froggs says:

    Anarchism can only work at the micro level of society.

    Roads would get built, however as James states in this interview with Anarchism people have property rights, therefore it’s fairly easy to predict that people that own land would simply put no trespassing signs all over the place, or they would charge a toll just to use “THEIR” roads in order traverse their land.

    Now imagine this scenario multiplied a million fold, that would be anarchism in a nut shell.

    You guys fill your boots, but sorry…no, not for me thank you.

    • Mark says:

      I think the roads thing brings out the fallacy underlying anarchism quite clearly. In this piece JC chooses to address it through misdirection – it’s companies who build the roads and not the government, sidestepping the heart of that matter which is eminent domain regarding acquisition of the land and the size of the project (think interstate highway system) and how many interests are involved. I remember seeing somewhere (possibly here, or maybe it was that cock Stefan Molyneux) an aerial photo of maybe a half-dozen private homes that had together constructed a small roadway behind them in an empty field or other space, this as an example of how roads would get built in a no-government anarchic world. Just laughable.

      Just about the largest cooperative project in our world today is the one dealing with global warming. Even if you don’t believe it’s actually happening as framed, it’s at least a very interesting theoretical test for the anarchists as how the world would deal with that on a voluntary basis – it’s the pollution issue writ large. Of course the easiest solution is to sidestep it altogether, simply deny it’s happening. Problem solved.

      • peace.froggs says:

        I’ll add this caveat, it maybe companies who build the roads and not the government, however for the most part, it is the government, through appropriated funds via taxes, that pay private companies to build roads.

        …and yeah, if anarchism would rule, we’d have a bunch of mosaic patch work of roadways owned and operated for only certain clique in this Utopian society (probably the wealthy).

  7. Mark says:

    Thanks, James, watching this replay I think I figured out the quandary I’ve had about CR, answer to the question I’ve been asking lately, namely why the “Jewish Question” is never addressed. Turns out I was circling very close to what I now think is the truth, but now I’m more confident that I’ve found it.

    It’s actually related to you being an anarchist, and more specifically a structuralist in that core belief in the “solution” to all the problems – all government is bad, and so the only answer is no government at all. That fundamentalism doesn’t allow for nuance, doesn’t allow for better and worse governments, doesn’t allow for evolution or revolution creating a better government. And as VoA suggests above, it doesn’t allow for identification of angels and devils, and that they exist under any possible structuring of society.

    The comparison I made once before, and now I think is even more apt, is with Gnome Chomsky, another anarcho-type structuralist. Gnome can’t deal with JFK because the power structures are the problem and nuance between players within that structure is meaningless, so there is no difference between JFK and LBJ, or Nixon, Carter and Reagan for that matter. Being no difference, and power being monolithic, it simply doesn’t matter who is presented as sitting at the top, so why would “they” involve themselves in that sort of messy business?

    With your central-banking focus and view of that as the crux of power, the Jewish power structure, historically and currently, becomes even more material in the entire matter, but as a structuralist/fundamentalist, it simply can’t be material. Because that would point toward “devils” and away from the structural issue, which of course is at some level the whole story.

    The Chomsky comparison does also raise the “gatekeeper” question, I suppose, and part of that question is the intentionality of that role. But that’s another matter.

    A couple additional comments here. As a person who spent almost his entire adult working life in large corporations, my “capitalist” working life is where I have had the least freedom, the fewest rights, where I had to put up with being told what to do, when to do it, and perhaps even worse than that, what to think. In the public world, where our governments exist, I have much more freedom and rights, I can participate in the decisionmaking process, etc. So just based on that one aspect of private businesses, getting rid of all government and retaining capitalism seems ridiculous to me as a “solution” to anything. Perhaps as a person who is apparently independently self-employed you have lost touch with that reality of the vast majority of people in this world.

    The notion that removing central banking from the US will collapse the government? I suppose it could take down specific governments, if monetary instability resulted from that and voters rebelled against that, but I just don’t see how central banks are that essential to government. I understand how banking is material to the real power structures in the world, but that’s different than the formal government structures. Power isn’t government, power controls government. At least that’s my view. Circling back to where I started here, it might be helpful to step back and focus on usury as the heart of the matter, and removal of usury as a solution.

  8. m.clare says:


    3.5 million people filed a tax return in Alberta last year
    $4.6 billion dollars was the budget for roads and bridges

    These precious Roads cost the average tax payer $1,300 per year.

    I pay this much tax in 2 weeks.

    What do they do with the money they take from me for the remaining 50 weeks in the year?

    • Mark says:

      In the US they use most of that to pay for usurious debt and to militarily run and expand a colonial empire for multinational corporations and to fight wars for Israel.

      If 4% of the taxes I pay went to things I support it would be a significant improvement…

    • peace.froggs says:

      Income tax and Sales tax aren’t the same thing, unless the government mixes them all together as general funds, however theoretically speaking, gas tax, and only gas tax is to be used to pay for roads.

  9. HomeRemedySupply says:

    James Corbett,
    I would love to see a Round Table discussion on kakistocracy.

    Here is a queued video where Corbett discusses kakistocracy.

    Here Sibel Edmonds has red ears about kakistocracy.

    In Oct 2016, even Forbes talks about kakistocracy. Investing in a Kakistocracy

    “The Greek word “kakistocracy,” which I learned from Peggy Noonan, describes a state or government run by the most unscrupulous or unsuitable people – in other words, the world we live in today. Corrupt, dishonest and incompetent politicians, regulators and bureaucrats were put in charge by self-absorbed, selfish and ignorant citizens…The country needs a political lobotomy….”

    Personally, I think many people miss this aspect about the “kakistocracy”. Once people gain an understanding of this aspect, then it better opens the door towards contemplating more viable solutions.

  10. madzz says:

    I wonder if James still feels the same? I’ve heard him recently mentioning how he is voluntarianist. Would love to know his opinion on the philosophies he does not resonate with, and why. Questions for corbett maybe?
    Also, I think we should bring back the Well Read Anarchist! What an amazing series that I feel did not get enough love,
