    Can someone "school" me on anarchism? I've never really gotten a clear explanation. Pros and cons maybe?

    thanks ;)

    That's a pretty broad subject. Which is probably why you never got a clear answer. Anarchism is pretty much what you make of it. And that's really what it's all about. However if you are into certain schools of thought, two of my favorites are ontological anarchy and green anarchy... but there are tons of brands out there.

    just use common sense, it's anarchisms arch enimy.

    you have a society with no set laws and no set order. who fixes the roads? who controls traffic? who mediates when someone gets in an accident? who forces someone to pay their debt? who insures children are not used as slave labor? who insures adults are not used as slave labor? who insures that dr's. are really dr's? who stops someone from just taking everything you own at gun point? who insures that airplanes are safe? that busses and trains are safe? who funds schools? who helps kids go to college? who insures colleges are anything more than diploma mills?

    ive yet to find a brand of anarchism that could even begin to stand up to half of those claims, and thats just the tip of the iceberg.

    anarchism is just suicide with bad haircuts and tight jeans.

    If we were no longer a hierarchical global superpower why would anyone attack us? I mean anarchism has it's flaws, and I personally don't think the world is ready for it, is the alternative really to keep living in this
    And you misspelled enemy.

    Christiania seems to function pretty well.
    But in all actuality I think anarchism can be applied only on a small scale. It would be much harder to manage larger areas especially when certain communities get stronger than others and become aggressive.
    I think that's what anarchy is really all about though is local, grassroots power.

    one thing that people dont understand is that anarchism, socialism, and communism all have the same end. Of course its idealsitic to think that anarchism is possible right now, thats why people try socialism and communism. People right now, especially in america have a way too messed up view of the world, human nature, etc that it would never work right now. thats not to say that the goal isnt worth fighting for
