Parent Article: CONFESSIONS OF A "BUSH BASHER"

Anarchists are unlike any other type of activist.
09 Sep 2004
In any country which lives under a government (which is all of them), anarchists are a universal enemy. By definition, anarchism MUST remove government, must remove ownership of private property, and remove all structure from hierarchial organization.

I cannot see any peaceful coexistence of anarchy with any known governmental system. That would include Communists, Socialists, even diatatorships and fascist states must use a structured government to maintain civilization (albeit oppressive).

Unlike all other activist platforms, only anarchy threatens civilisation itself. Extreme prejeduce towards anarchy and anarchist movements is universal worldwide. Fortunately, in most other countries, they are not allowed to assemble AT ALL. Freedom is not a myth, it is a condition which must be provided for, defended and supported by others. It is not a "given". Freedom is not free. People have died protecting it, others have had to lose their freedom to protect the freedom of others (i.e. anarchist criminals, would-be dictators, terrorists, Islamic radicals, cult leaders, etc).

I feel much safer with anarchist hordes in jail than blocking my way while I go to work or threatening my safety while I FOLLOW THE LAWS.
