I got the video from you tube and posted it on here for you.


Thanks AF. You must have been doing that while I was editing my post to correct it

I admit it is a bit silly lumping all anarchists together with other terrorists. Though I understand the gist of what they are saying: if you become aware of a group of people planning vandalism or other antisocial activities, then you should inform the police. Such people often call themselves 'anarchists'. Because it makes them sound hard.


Just the phrase "antisocial behavior" irritates me. I don't know why it's such a popular and accepted phrase in the UK... but it reeks of police state propaganda. Anti-social behavior? What the hell does that even mean?


I assume that anti-social means counter-culture.

Though personally, I would describe anarchists as being asocial. What this means is that, on the individual level, anarchists act on in the self-interest (which really is the definition of liberalism). This is the opposite of the concept of communitarianism, where we, as individuals entangled in eachothers' lives, gain much more through a community since we end up producing internal goods from the practices that we follow through in (basically, the gestalt effect).

I wouldn't say that. In fact, the vast majority of Anarchist theory, thought, and practice utilizes and celebrates community, solidarity, and deep human bonds/cooperation. Read up on some Anarchist writings, you'll see what I'm saying:

infoshop.org...

anarchistnews.org...

crimethinc.com...

en.wikipedia.org...


In an insane world... Anarchism may be the sanest stance for the long-term.
