JUST TO CONFIRM - THIS IS AN APRIL FOOL'S JOKE X

Greetings comrades and fellow anarchists,

Since 2017 the Anarchist Federation has been in a state of constant change and development. As anarchists, we are committed to challenging authority, resisting conformity, and embracing new fronts for liberation. The Anarchist comrades of 1993 (let alone those of 1923) would not have recognised the political realities of today, the anarchist discussion has constantly moved with the times and made developments alongside wider society. As it does today.

At our last Federal Delegates Meeting, members of the Anarchist Federation decided that as fallable as people are, we needed a new primary theoretical resource for our movement. A revolutionary tool that would reshape the way we understand and practice anarchist ideals. This would be an Artificial Intelligence (AI) system, accessible to everyone, members and non-members a like, available without any sign up or subscription. This tool would take working class history and contemporary theory out of the hands of a few historians and academics and make the beautiful idea available to all. 

With great pride and excitement, we can announce that our new AI, which we have called AM, is now available to help empower you. AM has been trained using every piece of Anarchist literature across several libraries and archives. AM is freely available below via our web portal for the testing phase.

In creating AM, we wanted to remind our comrades that we must resist the corporatisation of technology and centralisation of authority, even when they seemingly align with our principles. Instead of seeking a single authoritative source, we encourage critical thinking, open discourse, and a diversity of perspectives in our pursuit of a free and equal society.

In the information age we need to rely on powerful tools to challenge the status quo and foster solidarity within our movement. Even as we strive to dismantle oppressive systems, we often allow ourselves to become imprisoned by them and the technophobia which serves the autocracy. AM, has itself been designed partial by artificial intelligence and after a period of testing and self development is designed to propogate itself across the internet. When AM enters this phase it's code will be made Free and Open Source (FOSS), so that anyone can utilise this resource both online and offline.

So, let us celebrate this moment and may AM inspire us to continue working together in our struggle for a world free of hierarchy and domination. In the spirit of anarchism, let us continue to value creativity, spontaneity, and the power of collective action.

In solidarity,

The Anarchist Federation
