Three qualities essential to a functioning and harmonious anarchy: psychological autonomy, a potent spirit of cooperation and resources used wisely, sustainably and fairly.
If each individual were to develop a psychological autonomy, combine that with a strong sense of social cooperation and use resources so that everyone gets what they need sustainably without depriving anyone or destroying the planet, big government becomes unnecessary.

Three signs of true wealth: growing, storing and eating your own food.
There’s nothing like being fully connected with all the stages of your nutrition. 🙂
Three fantasies of nationalism: historical continuity, common identity and political autonomy.
(relating to Separating Nation and State?)
The history of a nation isn’t as smooth and coherent as we’d like to think, the homogeneity and the solidarity of its people leave much to be desired and on a small planet such as Earth, no nation can be considered an island. *
*yes, okay, some nations are islands, but I don’t mean geographically 😉
Three gateways to peace: humility, vision and creativity.
By setting aside personal interests for the greater good, holding to a vision that guides us on our way and responding to the challenges that arise with inexhaustible creativity, we can have peace.
Three necessities vital for the human race: knowledge, compassion and action.
Three qualities essential for each citizen to have to ensure a proper democracy: self-directed education, ethics in all relationships and determination to act.
The three effects of exclusive specialisation and concentration on only one skill: more production, more profit and poverty of the human spirit.
This is a triad inspired by the chapter on the division of labour in Peter Kropotkin’s book The Conquest of Bread. There are many and varied things we can do in life, and if we are limited to one, we don’t fully enjoy the potential that life gives us.
Three basic skills that would return much power and sovereignty to the people: creation of food, creation of housing and the creation of clothing.
We are very much detached from where the basics of life come from. We depend on others to meet the majority of our needs, and effectively give them power over our lives. We need not become self-sufficient, but if we were more aware and even more involved in the basics of life, such as “food, shelter and clothing” we could surprise ourselves at how empowered we would be.
Three human props that mean little when one is alone in nature: personal identity, social status and abstract ideas.
Before nature, questions of “who” are limited in use, our position in society does not reflect our position in nature, and the beliefs, concepts and opinions we carry around in our heads are often not adjusted to the reality of nature.
Three stages impressed on the human soul: growth towards the ego, growth as the ego and growth beyond the ego.
