A proscenium theatre layout also simplifies the hiding and obscuring of objects from the audience's view (sets, performers not currently performing, and theatre technology). Anything that is not meant to be seen is simply placed outside the "window" created by the proscenium arch, either in the wings or in the flyspace above the stage.
Anarchism is a political philosophy which considers the state undesirable, unnecessary, and harmful, and instead promotes a stateless society, or anarchy.
Anarchists seek to diminish or even abolish authority in the conduct of human relations,
but widely disagree on what additional criteria are essential to anarchism. According to The Oxford Companion to Philosophy. "there is no single defining position that all anarchists hold, and those considered anarchists at best share a certain family resemblance."
"In broad terms, anarchism is the rejection of coercion and domination in all forms, including that of the priests and the plutocrats.... The anarchist...abominates all forms of authoritarianism, and he is the enemy of parasitism, exploitation, and oppression. The anarchist frees himself from all that is sacred and carries out a vast program of desecration."
One of the most difficult – and essential – challenges faced by libertarians is the constant need to point out “the gun in the room.” In political debates, it can be very hard to cut through the endless windy abstractions that are used to cover up the basic fact that the government uses guns to force people to do what they do not want to do, or prevent them from doing what they do want to do. Listening to non-libertarians, I often wish I had a “euphemism umbrella” to ward off the continual oily drizzle of words and phrases designed to obscure the simple reality of state violence. We hear nonstop nonsense about the “social good,” the “redistribution of income,” the “education of children” and so on – endless attempts to bury the naked barrel of the state in a mountain of syrupy metaphors.
The factions of anarchy vary widely, and can not necessarily coexist in the same community. For example, You would classify me as an anarcho-capitalist, yet I know some anarcho-communists, and I wouldn't want to live in that community, but the binging force is that I would be free to leave it at any time.

Because if what you say is true as far as not all Anarchists as a movement are coming together with the same common goals, be it the difference of opinions of the movement and what it represents along with the no so good public image be it because of fringe members with a completely seperate point of views but yet still under the same name that represents everybody in that group.. it still damns the movement and everything it represents in the end.
