L’anarchie (du grec ἀναρχία / anarkhia, composé de an, préfixe privatif : absence de, et arkhêhiérarchie, commandement ou « primauté ») désigne la situation d’une société où il n'existe pas de chef, pas d'autorité unique, autrement dit où chaque sujet ne peut prétendre à un pouvoir sur l'autre. Il peut exister une organisation, un pouvoir politique ou même plusieurs, mais pas de domination unique ayant un caractère coercitif. L’anarchie peut, étymologiquement, également être expliquée comme le refus de tout principe premier, de toute cause première, et comme revendication de la multiplicité face à l’unicité.

& one of the things that endlessly impressed me about the Church of the SubGenius (sorta Neo; sorta not Neo) was that at the time it was an overwhelming presence in mail-art, it also had a powerful street art component. You could go to almost any USA city & find Bob Dobbs right there with all the other street art.

Well-said, BG, for the BIG Picture. IMHO.

Yes, DVS, street art is not necessarily anarchy.  Also, street art is not specifically graffiti.  The similarities of anarchy and graffiti in practice seems to be the quest for individualism over state power, in the modern sense.  And, graffiti is not necessarily an older concept.  I am unaware of the mail network of MNK.  I think Neoism is a double turn on its head, of individualism, in the modern sense.  Or not!

BG, the British x-Neoist Stewart Holme posted a query on the net for information about M.N.K. - probably for something he's writing. I think I have the same M.N.K. linked below. They work through the mail too. He, of course, had them connected to the Situationists and all sorts of things, which would mean going far back in time and organized. Street art linked to anarchy is pretty variable. We know the position of our Ambassador of Utopia.

European street art group M.N.K. (mink) are persons of interest to post-neo.
