e-deologies V, 2023
E-deology is an internet slang term used to describe complex ideological labels. These hyper-specific categories serve as a gamified form of identity play and niche personal branding in the chaotic landscape of online politics.
Libertarian Georgist Hoppeanism
Georgism is an economic philosophy that advocates for the privatization of property and the socialization of land. Natural monopolies and resources are managed as public utilities, often redistributed as a basic income, while businesses are operated by individuals. Hoppeanism is anti-democratic, pro-market ideology organized around private communities with deeply conservative cultural values.
An anarchist society that dramatically restricts the scope of private property. Individuals may only own the land and property that they reside at or cultivate themselves. Resources are equitably predistributed and individuals may exchange their goods through a free market.
Effective Accelerationism seeks a technological singularity alongside the emergence of artificial intelligence. Its iconography depicts a parabolic curve of rapidly increasing technological advancement. The movement has significant philosophical overlap with Effective Altrusim but rejects anthropocentrism. Instead, e/acc understands humanity as the stewards of an emergent techno-capital singularity.
The peaceful and non-violent transition to an equitable society. Pacifist white borders socialist red behind the symbol of a black gear, used to represent the industrial workforce. The socialist rose signifies the promise of a better life under socialism, not just the bare essentials of bread, but art, music, education, nature and more.
Founded in 2021, Praxis is a start-up company seeking to build a new sovereign city-state in a special economic zone. The flag depicts a “Black Sun”, or Sonnenrad, a symbol popular with far right groups.
A progressive vision of gender identity and sexual orientation merged with the symbolism of the Soviet Union. Similar icons are used online by sincere left-wing groups and satire accounts alike. It can often be hard to tell the difference between the two.
A rallying cry for anarchists of all tendencies to unite under a common banner. The color stripes signify (from top to bottom): Egoists, Mutualists, Anarcho-Communists, Queer Anarchists, Feminists, Anarcho-Collectivists, Transhumanists, Pacifists, Individualists, Platformists, Primitivists, Syndicalists, the Post-Left and Green Anarchists.
A ruthless critique of industrial civilization. Green-and-Pink Anarchy posits queerness as the embodiment of “the other”, a condition created by our corrupt and oppressive mass society. They advocate for insurrection over conventional notions of workplace organization, reform or revolution.
