 Anti-authoritarian - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Anti-authoritarianism is opposition to authoritarianism, which is defined as "concentration of power in a leader or an elite not constitutionally responsible to the people" or the doctrine that advocates such absolutism in rule, as in autocracy, despotism, dictatorship, and totalitarianism. /wiki/Anti-authoritarian   (81 words)

The descriptions of the authoritarian personality which were developed by Adorno, Frenkel-Brunswik, Levinson and Sanford in their 1950 report of the research arising out of studies of ethnocentrism, anti-semitism and conservatism carried strong evaluative suggestions concerning those who scored highly on the F-Scale (Potentiality for Fascism).
This evidence is held to support Rudin's argument that rational and irrational authoritarianism (as exemplified by the F-scale) are independent, and that pathology is related to rejection of the former as well as acceptance of the latter.
The entitlement of the Rudin negative scale to the description of "rational authoritarianism" therefore seems to rest on some empirical foundation, apart from the purely conceptual argument that it cannot be rational to reject all authority. /rudin.html   (3778 words)

 Libertarian Socialism
Since capitalism's early beginnings in Europe, and it's authoritarian trend of wage-slavery for the majority of people (working class) by a smaller, elite group (a ruling, or, capitalist class) who own the "means of production": machines, land, factories, there was a liberatory movement in response to capitalism known as "Socialism".
It is recognized that there are authoritarian systems and behavior, distinct from libertarian, or non-authoritarian ones.
In almost every case, the socialist movement has been divided along authoritarian, and libertarian lines. /library/intro/sp001631.html   (1985 words)

 History News Network
While there are, admittedly, plenty of authoritarian types on the left (as everywhere else), there are also plenty of people whose instincts are firmly anti-authoritarian but who have been lured into supporting state socialism because it's been sold to them as the only effective counterweight to state capitalism.
For me the case is not primarily strategic, since I'm far more in inherent sympathy with the left's economic and cultural concerns than most libertarians are (and part of the point our panel were making in Boston is that libertarians have done too little justice to such concerns); but it certainly is at least strategic.
These leftists are our potential allies, but no alliance will be forthcoming so long as we continue to confirm most leftists' impression of libertarianism as a variant of conservatism. /blogs/entries/9451.html   (824 words)

 Power Line: One man's anti-authoritarian is another man's misfit
The time-worn argument that conservatives have authoritarian personalities is, more or less, a nasty way of recasting my thesis.
This George Will column ridicules a piece by four professors who claim that conservatism is symptomatic of a psychological syndrome that can involve fear, aggression, uncertainty avoidance, intolerance of ambiguity, dogmatic dislike of equality, irrational nostalgia, and need for cognitive closure, all aspects of the authoritarian personality.
Liberal Democrats, by contrast, tend to regard rules as tools of oppression that can freely be disregarded whenever it is in their interest to do so. /archives/004248.php   (396 words)

 One Anti-authoritarian, Anti-capitalist’s take on the EU
They are accusing the opposition everything from “plunging the country [France] into political disarray and jeopardizing the cause of European unity” (NY Times), being anti-immigrant(The Guardian and The Washington Post), stalling “efforts to develop common foreign policies and push the euro, a potent symbol of unification, into a downward spiral” (NY Times again).
Regardless of how the constitution is rewritten and reworded the concept of the EU is nothing more than another layer of authoritarian oppression being imposed on the obviously opposed European citizenry.
As expected the corporate media stateside has put its own authoritarian capitalist spin on the story. /?p=68   (666 words)

 Imperialism and Anti-authoritarian Resistence after 9-11
Thus, any group with a progressive or liberal agenda of any sort is finding itself less and less able to play a role in the political development of the region while power splits into a horrifying binary opposition of authoritarian clients of US imperialism, and fundamentalism.
One, the US will support brutal authoritarian governments in small states throughout the region.
It was, I think, clear from the beginning, that the US “War on Terror” marked a rapid acceleration of a process which is functioning to create a new imperial regime in Central Asia, one built on a model currently in place across the Middle East. /11marklance.htm   (2049 words)

 For An Anti-authoritarian Insurrectionalist International
We consider that all the revolutionary organisations who choose authoritarian structures internally as a method of relating to each other, and externally as method of struggle, are to varying degrees playing into the hands of the power they are claiming to fight.

We are doing so because we want to avoid wasting time and do not want to waste other people's time either. /cordobakaf/inter.html   (4885 words)

 The Frankfurt School of Social Research by Kevin MacDonald
Such a portrayal is implicit in the psychoanalytic theory that liberation of sexual urges would lead to an end to anti-Semitism, but these fascists were uninhibited, violent, and anti-authoritarian.
Within the new perspective, authoritarianism was viewed as the fundamental problem, its origin traceable to family interactions and ultimately to the suppression of human nature (Marcus and Tar 1986, 87-88).
Altemeyer (1988, 2) defines "right-wing authoritarianism" as involving three central attributes: submission to legitimate social authority; aggression toward individuals that is sanctioned by the authorities; adherence to social conventions. /alabasters_archive/frankfurt_resed.html   (16468 words)

In the 1960s and 1970s, the "establishment" was seen as representing restrictive, authoritarian policies.

Authored by Dr. Theodor W. Adorno and Max Horkheimer, with pages of "research" by other social scientists, The Authoritarian Personality argued that persons holding certain views about society could, by nature of these views, be accurately adjudged racists and anti-Semites.
There may be an authoritarian personality," he continued, "but it makes precious few distinctions among systems, and is diffused throughout the political spectrum.
By that standard, Dr. Adorno himself was an authoritarian personality. /essays/essay_the_adorno_scale.htm   (1084 words)
