About AAoA

Anti-Authoritarians of America exists due to the rise of authoritarian behavior in American politics. The election of Donald Trump served as both a catalyst and inward-facing lens that changed public discourse, political civility, and social interactions within the United States — and has given space and political cover to hateful, immoral belief systems.

It’s our position that authoritarian behavior, and the individuals who practice it, are unfit to govern, unqualified to speak for the American people, and undeserving of the relative opportunity and stability this country sustains. We hope future leaders choose a philosophy of leadership that includes integrity, inclusiveness, hard-work, honest effort, and a transparent process; and avoid finding power through intimidation, corruption, and peddling fear.

AAoA’s mission is to identify and publicize authoritarian behaviors, policies, and attitudes — and serve as a resource to those organizing resistance against it. We re-post blurbs from larger pieces from all around the internet, highlighting examples of authoritarian behaviors and those who fight against it.

Respectfully and In Peace,

Michael Janczyn and Andrew Schweizer
