The fifth chapter seeks to position anarchism as an ethical philosophy of nonviolence and the absolute rejection of war. The argument contextualizes outside of religion and within the processual framework of radical democracy and agonism in seeking to redress the ageographical and ahistorical notions of politics that comprise the contemporary post-political zeitgeist. If archy is generically understood as systematized rule, it stands to reason that any form of it must be learned. Before children are born into identities, nationalities, religions, genders, or otherwise, they are simply babies. Babies know nothing of the political, economic, social, and cultural structures and strictures into which they have arrived. At the moment of birth, they are “radical equals”, and in this way peace is attainable.
