VOLUNTARYIST LOGO - COMIC STYLE

Voluntaryist Logo – COMIC STYLE

The Voluntaryist symbol stems from two concepts. First, it is the symbol in mathematical logic “∀” which means “for all; for any; for each.” The symbol’s connection to this logical term is that Volutaryism is a philosophy which seeks consistency- that all people should have equal rights and equal freedom not subject to the whims of authoritarian regimes.

Second, the internal “V” shape is the upside-down pyramid, symbolizing a rebellion against the elite. The pyramid symbol is normally seen in Egyptian culture and other beliefs as the elite (the apex) ruling over the many (large base). By turning the normal order upside-down, the Voluntaryist symbol tries to rectify the abuse of the many at the hands of a few.

The Statists, while not always using it in their gear, mock the Voluntaryists with their inverse, the triangle of rule – seeking to hold the elite in power.

  1. I also see an upside-down A for Anarchism and a V for Voluntary[ism].

  2. “that all people should have equal rights and equal freedom not subject to the whims of authoritarian regimes”

    It’s not only equality of rights and equality of freedom, but equality of authority. We could all have very few rights and few freedoms and this would be unjust despite the fact that we would still be equal. For more on this, see Roderick Long’s essay “Equality: The Unknown Ideal”: http://mises.org/daily/804

  4. v

    This is indeed great symbol. I would also like to note that flipped “A” can be seen as soft opposition to “pure” anarchy, meaning, albeit voluntary, law and order. Once “true” anarchist told me that voluntaryists are not “true anarchists”. I said that I don’t care, but maybe he was right and this logo can express the difference.

    • You’re absolutely right! That is part of why we don’t use the “A” because we don’t fall into traditional anarchism. Traditional anarchism usually follows the “no laws, no rulers” no matter what agreement is made by an individual. (Some would even say that defining anarchism is impossible because definitions are themselves rules.)

      Very astute observation!

  6. Like what you’re doing, but care less for the AnCap crap & colors. Ancaps promote property ownership.

    • Property ownership is a part of this universe. It is not AnCom focused.
