What is it with youz guyz fetish about "defining" words? And BTW, nobody is trying to define the word "anarchy" to begin with. What people are attempting to identify is a centuries old historical and contemporary social movement, commonly and unfortunately identified these centuries, in the English language, by the word "anarchism".
We don't care if the wingnuts wanna have their own "special" definition of the word "anarchy", or not. Just like we don't care if the wingnuts wanna have their own "special" little language, with redefinition of the words "voluntary", "capitalism", "force", etc, etc.
But what is consistently exasperating is this constant attempt to argue about the "one true and only" definition of this or that word. When non-wingnuts are discussing this social movement, we simply are using the standard historical English language label, for this movement
. We are not at all interested in hearing, once again
, that the wingnuts have their own non-relevant "special" definition too, and gee... let's all play dictionary thinking battle-star wars.
...The only difference between your system and the current one is we end up with 6 billion busybodies interfering with each other instead of a few centralized ones...
Once again, anarchism is not some kind of "personal theory". There aren't different kinds of personal anarchism, like ILOVEPOKER949
"kind" of anarchism, or any such non-sense. This text quoted above has nothing to do with anarchism at all. Seriously, there is a ton of info on the interwebs... why make up total and complete non-sense, what's the point ?
I'll repeat once again, even though most of the Occupiers are not anarchists, the way we go about making our decisions is pure anarchism. Organizations like General Assemblies and Affinity Groups/ Spokes-Councils are anarchism
, plain and simple. No need to make up non-sense, or try to play "make believe"... just go down to your local GA, or watch one streaming on the interwebs, and see how anarchism works in reality. We're just trying to get the rest of our lives organized this way, horizontal and leaderless, including our communities and work places.
