Anarchism is one of those words we use without really thinking about it’s real meaning. Usually it is used as shorthand for disorder, no order or chaos. But there is a long history behind this political philosophy, and it was a significant driver of radical political activity in the western world during the 19th and 20th centuries. I came across a good overview of anarchism recently.
As introduced on the site: “Everything you ever wanted to know about anarchism but were afraid to ask. This classic statement of anarchism was written by a diverse group of anarchists in Cardiff around 1980 and it remains a testimony to the timeless relevance of anarchist ideas. It has been widely reproduced on the Web but usually in a version full of typographic errors. As one of the collective authors I am pleased to bring it back home to Wales. It is reproduced here exactly as it was written. Anarchists have no need to edit their history! Terry Phillips “
