From the “Prologue”:

“This little book of essays isn’t partitioned, but it perhaps has two inseparable aspects: one which is more metaphysical, in which I focus on topics of a more spiritual nature, like cosmology, theology, ontology, and epistemology; and the other more physical, in which I consider themes of a slightly more material nature, such as sociology and political economy. As I hope to make clearer throughout the book, in essays such as “Class Antagonism and its Metaphysical Implications,” these two aspects, though admittedly different, are not disconnected. Rather, they are quite interrelated.

The Evolution of Consent will decidedly espouse and promote a doctrine of spiritual pantheism and political panarchism, more specifically dualist pantheism and geo-mutualist panarchism. This book will clarify the meaning and intentions of these worldviews, and unite them and solidify their co-dependence. They are treated both separately and together.”


“The world is facing one of the most dangerous periods of modern history. Europe is confronting a descent into chaos and conflict. The international financial crisis and the risk of default of public debts are unprecedented. The global economic system could collapse altogether… We are witnessing a dramatic increase in entropy and chaos and people are becoming scared of the future, they sense that a new world conflict is getting closer.

In this collection of essays William Schnack offers a new and fresh perspective. He suggests that it is possible to shift from entropy to syntropy, from chaos to wellbeing. It is a complex and controversial topic, which needs to be widely addressed and debated, and which could provide a way out from the catastrophic future towards which humanity is now heading.”

The Evolution of Consent is a systematic restatement of the basic ideas of 19th century individualist anarchism as formulated by Proudhon, Benjamin Tucker, John Beverly Robinson and Clarence Swartz, with additional insights from Henry George on land and Tom Greco on money. But like many of the 19th century individualists, Schnack has far broader interests than political economy alone; he places his economic views in a larger metaphysical and psychological context in a manner reminiscent of Stephen Pearl Andrews. Altogether an eclectic and engaging read.”
