I don't claim any sort of anarchist organization or group of them would provide perfect answers all the time, but Anarchism is an opportunity to be
invested in, not shunned.
If used by an enlightened person, Anarchism can provide an objective viewpoint of the governments actions, the public's reactions and the
consequences both must face. Because it is derided publicly and denied by the government, anarchism has no real interest in protecting either from the
other; only with detrimental amounts of government interference does anarchism have any ground to stand on, let alone the thin ice John Q. Public
The public does not like the idea of the government lying to it, the government looks deeply into the public for reasons to govern it. Anarchism, the
people who support it, give the loudest voices to the disenfranchised youth inherent in every democracy, and the disenfranchised elders in any
I think that if people gave themselves more leeway on being anarchistic, you'd find stability when you need some objective analysis to what the
public wants, to why the government can not deliver it.
Liberty, Fraternity and Equality are tenets of Anarchism, and now with the Green movement we could Shoehorn 'Sustainability' into that list of

I recognize that people do need some security, I recognize security is built upon trust. Neither the government nor the public trusts the other
completely. Anarchists only recognize this as a problem, but I'll try to show you a solution to having mistrust at all.
Mistrust is a virtue, the skeptical minds that oppose the governments drive to better its citizens for fear of their own liberty waste it; they'll
decry technological advantages that allow passive security because of the erosion of illegitimate liberty. CCTV cameras are scary, but the government
will only place them there at a cost if there is a cost to be paid.
Governments fear anarchism in the public, anarchists know this. Anarchists should use it to gain public office, continued opposition to coercive
oppression does have a place in any democracy, and it's the reason that people vote for opposition parties.
Anarchism, without leaders, finds itself floundering on the geopolitical stage because its greatest strength of autonomous action is a liability on a
Anonymous, a true leader, rose up to guide us and there are those rightfully fearful of this new non-faced leader among the powerful and elite. You
should be glad there are any who will abuse their powers to fight the powerful who abuse you.
