Will the Real Anarchists Please Blow Up?

© John Backderf

Anarchists want to destroy government. Republicans want to destroy government. Or at least drown it in a bathtub. What’s the difference?



  1. Anarchy is and always has been as far-right as you can possibly get…?

    The difference is, when anarchists are done, a nation’s poor and working class lives have usually improved.

    The Publicans don’t want to destroy or drown gubmint. They do want to shape it into a fascist/oligarchic/plutocratic nightmare for the average person, though.

    Anarchists? I see them as far out there as most Libertarians are today. Mostly bent on destruction not construction. I’m scratching my head trying to draw up a time when anarchical action led to an improvement of the quality of life for the poor and working class. Please help me with that one, OregonBird.
