    Taoist Anarchism (TaoAn) is a Libunity-yellow.png Libertarian unity ideology that believes Taoism is an Awaj.png Anarchist religion and philosophy and that Taoism should be the main religion to model an anarchist society after.

    History

    Beginnings

    It all started in the 6th century BCE in China. Lao Tzu and his writings are considered by anarchists and the like to be at least very libertarian writings. Him and Zhuang Zhou often questioned the legitimacy of the state and believed in something called non-rule where the ruler should do as little as possible and some people consider this an Anarchist goal.

    Wei-Jin period

    During the Wei-Jin period of China a new generation Taoist thinkers had Anarchist leanings as they also questioned the legitimacy of the state. They were similar to Philan.png Philosophical Anarchism as they questioned its morality and were pacifist. This was also the period that gave birth to Pao Ching-yen who was explicitly Anarchist and deeply critiqued states authority and power.

    Modern Day

    In the 20th and 21st century there have been some anarchists who identified as Taoists such as Liu Shifu and Ursula K. Le Guin.

    Beliefs

    Emphasizes the "natural harmony" between humanity and nature. Taoist anarchism generally follows the Daodejing, but besides that there are many different branches of Taoist thought (philosophical and religious Taoism).

    Many people consider Taoist Anarchism to be "proto-right libertarian" because it had chapters against taxation and state interference in the economy, but Taoists are also anti-hierarchical and have a definition of work similar to the desires of leftist anarchists.

    Taoist Anarchism is also strictly Anpacf.png anti-militaristic and does not like serving Monarch.png kings.

    Personality

    TaoAn is often depicted as being very calm. He talks calmly and keep calm even in stressful situations. He is also depicted meditating. He is seen meditating in his free time and in the background of panels. He is also depicted as being a wise elder to all the other Anarchist ideologies. He is seen giving advice and sharing his wisdom with other anarchist ideologies. Can be consulted by other Asian balls as the "feng shui master".
