A right wing anarchist would punch your teeth in, whilst a left wing anarchist would try and kiss you?


Although, in this day and age, those classed as liberal left wing have gotten violent so I'm not sure if the above is really true.

this is the worst piece of garbage I have seen on ATS
anarchy is the belief that governance by a ruling elite is killing us all.
most anarchists, like myself support a free and equal direct democracy. its is electing, or having rulers born that anarchy is against.
left or right is just a game made up by the partisan democracies to keep you divided.
anarchists don't care about your divisions. we have enough of our own.
its a big enough fight to just get people to realise that anarchy IS not the absence of governance... its not a break down of the social order, although that CAN be described as anarchy but "anarchists" are usually against represntational democracy. thats why we get a bad rap in modern society

Anarchy = Without Rulers.
Not to be confused with Without Rules.

One side leans more toward Communist sympathies (Left), while the other leans more toward Fascist sympathies (Right).

In other words, in one direction an Anarchist may self identify/affiliate with a certain group and promote cooperation with and contribution to the benefit of said enclave, while the other is more antisocial, opportunistic, self promotional, and self centered.

I recommend reading some of the books in The Culture series by Iain M. Banks for a fair idea on a "Left" Anarchist Utopia.

The difference? Not sure, because neither has ever experienced true anarchy, and would likely pee their pants if they did.

What's the real detailed definition of "anarchy"?

If it means less or limited or almost no government, then anything authoritarian, totalitarian is Leftist.
Ruling elite corporatism, nazism, communism, socialism, capitalism etc. etc. is all authoritarian and thus Leftist.

If the "ultra right" wing wants less government and authority, then they would be closer to the ultra anarchy theory.

Moderate "right wingers" (like U.S. republicans) would be slightly left of center.

Slightly right of center would work towards anarchy.

True "Open Free Market" would be ?

In my personal opinion, that's where well intentioned idealism and reality part company. Some think those can be distinct and separate things.

That would be putting an enormous degree of faith in the criminal element society has (all society has) and those who really only stay straight because someone will bust them if they follow temptation. Those two categories, IMO, would form more people than we'd much want to think about.

Go here and find out:
www.politicalcompass.org - The Political Compass - Test...

Read here:
www.politicalcompass.org - Political Compass - Analysis...

So basically this organizes a person according to two dimensions (or axis):
1 Economic Rules
2 Social Rules

Very loose social rules are classified as "Left".
Very strong social rules are classified as "Right".
Very loose economic rules are classified as "Libertarian".
Very strong economic rules are classified as "Authoritarian".

My score is -3.25/-3.33, so I am Libertarian Left.

I guess the right expose their deep seated antisemitism by desecrating the holocaust memorial, while the left expose their deep seated antisemitism in the name of fighting Zionism and holding all the Jews responsible for the policies of Israel.

Right Wing: People are born "sinners", then most of them learn moral values.
Left Wing: People are born "selfish", and then must be civilized by a system of reward and punishment.

A right wing anarchist would be an anarchist with that is counting on moral values to overpower the "forces of darkness".

A left wing anarchist would be an anarchist who believes they will participate in forming a system of reward and punishment, presumably focused on free-market principles.

I find the concept of anarchy entirely confusing as its based on flaky words with weak meanings. The prefix "an" means "without", making the word literally negative. "archy" means rule or ruler.

Right wing anarchy is based on fascism, nationalism and corporate domination

Left wing anarchy doesn't recognise borders, race or the pursuit of wealth (apart from a minority who think it can work without the abolishment of capitalism or racial/national segregations so a just right wingers b another name)

For left-wing anarchy think a bunch of gullible child-like people who run around naked and chant hare-krishna while slowly starving to death. For right-wing anarchy think rule by a bunch of outlaws, motorbike-gangs and mafia-like groups while anyone not into violence and machismo dies out.

How can you have nationalist anarchists? There's no nation-state. How can you have corporatist anarchists? Again, there is no state. A corporation is a legal entity. There aren't any laws. These imaginary entities we call "corporations" lose their entire hypothetical framework without the state to validate their existences and qualify our interactions with them. In fact, it has been argued that the state itself exists for no other reason than to protect the wealth of the wealthy using the system the wealthy themselves created. If the state is eliminated, the very concept of wealth goes out the _

And vice versa...

I agree, it's abuse of the word. The concept of right wing anarchism is so stupid no one with two brain cells to rub together would ever follow it.

While nation states would cease to exist, right wing anarchy seeks to introduce national volkism where nations are redefined under pure ethnic tribalism which would see mass racial segregation where different races would be granted a territory and could not stray into another's for fear of being killed - which is far more nationalist/authoritarian.

Anarcho-capitalists have similar backwards views, they want to dissolve the state and instead have capitalism run under contract laws drawn up by companies (which are individually, rather than collectively, owned) which leads to ever more consolidated wealth and power plus fails to address the problem that capitalism is completely incompatible with the world (i.e expecting endless growth with limited natural resources).

... I don't even

There is no such thing as right-wing anarchism. Anarchism literally translated means anti-archy or anti-hierarchy. It's beyond just anti-government and anti-state. Anarchists believe in absolute liberty by means of non-exploitation and horizontal democracy. This means no or very limited government and a free market that recognizes labor as capital, not money. Right Wing "Libertarians" (they stole the word) simply believe in no government or very limited government. The Right has absolutely no problem with hierarchical structure as they believe everything under the sun should be privatized.

TL;DR:

Left Wing Anarchism: No government, no hierarchy.

Right Wing "Libertarian": No government, pro-hierarchy.
