About

Anarchist Supply Chains refers to memes and parodies of a post on X (formerly Twitter) in which user @yesvatore shared a simplistic diagram showing how supply chains would work in an anarchist society. The diagram (which later became an exploitable format) showed a crudely drawn house and farm, with arrows and texts indicating that beans grown on the farm would be carried to the house and eaten, with the post captioned, "Anarchist supply chains explained."

Origin

In March 2022, various X users engaged in online debates about the efficacy of an anarchist society. The debate largely coalesced around the idea of how an anarchist society would facilitate largely bureaucratized supply chains that create, among other things, life-saving medication like insulin.

X[1] user @exiliaex posted a thread discussing their anarchist ideas on March 13th, 2022, fielding a question about supply chains by saying, "why would I want to manage large supply chains" (seen below).


Soll life doe@exiliaex . Mar 13 there is no global unifier, no name to unite under; even capitalism could not unify us against capitalists, as proletariat. what is unifying is the horizon of each and every unique rejection of how we are forced to live. not a totalizing machine, but global in its locality. 16 48 doe @exiliaex . Mar 13 any "communism" worth fighting for is one that no longer separates how we live from our political actions. 7 freedom can't be born through managerial, bureaucratic practices, but only through practicing freedom itself; against those very bureaucratic practices. 513 5 132 317 bamzolino @bamzolino Mar 13 What does this mean?
