|||||...so like er, what is an anarchist, mate?

perhaps anarchists could be defined as people who reject all forms of
coercive authority.
anarchists actively resist or reject, indeed seek to abolish, all forms of
domination or hierarchy.
with radical intention, an anarchist desires a life free of exploitation or
corporate-based profit.
anarchists intrinsically demand human rights and seek to inhabit a society
without State, Church or Capitalism; without Sexism, Nationalism, Racism or
Homophobia... etc.
furthermore anarchists believe that Private Property [private, corporate,
state ownership of capital, resource and ideas] is theft and that wage
labour is a form of slavery.
anarchists want to share their society completely, encourage respect for all
resources and distribution of all responsibilities fairly and equitably
across all societies and all life.
an anarchist seeks a productive culture of voluntary contribution and
participation without threat, fear or intimidation. many anarchists practice
deep ecology.
like all humanity, meaning is relative to experience - even to anarchists.
