Comment of the Day: True Anarchists Target Govt -- Not Small Business

Categories: Blowback
Today's comment of the day comes in response to Nicholas Phillips' scoop about anarchists targeting small businesses on Cherokee Street, tagging their walls and disabling security cameras.

The post has inspired a raging (and quite interesting) debate, with this recent comment from reader "Libertarian":

Funny, true anarchists are opposed to government control and support the individual's right to make their own living free from government intrusion. They also support private property. These attacks seem mostly against business owners and not the government. If they are "anarchists," they need to learn what an anarchist system really is. These vandals seem to follow a "anarcho-communism" system. Or as I like to call it "communism."

I love when non-anarchists tell anarchists what anarchism is about. Wikipedia, and political science classes aren't where you go to learn about anarchism. Anarchism is a big tent with many diverging lines of thought in it, not to mention the current anarchist movement, globally speaking, is still evolving on its own with many NEW lines of thought.

While there are MANY different lines of thought connected to anarchism, and ones that often butt heads with others, it does at least show that many different people, from many different backgrounds, have a desire to live their lives on their own terms. It's more than I can say for those who settle with whoever is running for office.

If just making crap up qualifies for the Comment of the day, what's the Story of the day? "Moon landing was faked by lizard people!"?

Any anarchist in America is a poser. All the real anarchists know that Somalia is the place to be.

In true anarchist nature, not even the anarchists can agree on what they believe in. Maybe instead they're nihilists? Or maybe they're just whiny little punks who need a good shakedown.
