  Anarchism - Biocrawler   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Many anarchists are critical of the fl bloc because some blocs have engaged in property destruction against multi-national corporations and have thus gotten a label as "violent" and "adventurists" from media and large-scale liberal organizations.
Anarchists also engage in building parallel structures and organizations, such as Food Not Bombs, radical labor unions, infoshop and radical social centers, new sets of schooling systems, media in various forms, organizing around housing and land issues, and work toward accountability with police and other institutions through such tools as consensus decision-making.
Anarchists have often been portrayed as dangerous and violent, due mainly to a number of high-profile violent acts including riots, assassinations, and insurrections involving anarchists.

 Symbolism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Symbolism is the systematic or creative use of arbitrary symbols as abstracted representations of concepts or objects and the distinct relationships in between, as they define both context and the narrower definition of terms.
The term "symbolism" is often limited to use in contrast to "representationalism"; defining the general directions of a linear spectrum wherein all symbolic concepts can be viewed in relation, and where changes in context may imply systemic changes to individual and collective definitions of symbols.
Human language is based in the use of phonemes as representative symbols, and the analogous written forms are typically deferential to the phoneme.

 Anarchy Basics   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Anarchist communists like Mikhail Bakunin and Peter Kropotkin built on the Marxist critique of capitalism and synthesised it with their own critique of the state, emphasizing the importance of a communal perspective to maintain individual liberty in a social context.
Anarchists, however, use a narrower definition, reserving the term anarchy for an anarchist society: that is, a society organised on the principles of anarchism, though exactly what these principles are differs from anarchist to anarchist.
Anarchist ideas are generally held to go back as far as Ancient Greece, where Zeno of Citium was, according to Kropotkin, "[t]he best exponent of Anarchist philosophy in ancient Greece" and the philosopher Aristippus said that "the wise should not give up their liberty to the state".

However, individuality is still cherished and sought for in the design of buildings seen as cultural symbols - the museum or fine arts centre has become a showcase for new experiments in style: today Deconstructivism, tomorrow maybe something else.

The word "anarchy", as most anarchists use it, does not imply chaos or anomie, but rather an egalitarian form of human relations that is intentionally established and maintained.
Similarly, anarchistic tendencies can be traced to the philosophers of Ancient Greece, such as Zeno, the founder of the Stoic philosophy, and Aristippus, who said that the wise should not give up their liberty to the state http://www.flcrayon.com/page.jsp/library/britt1910.html.
While anarchists recognize that the use of violence is ultimately an individual decision, some have proposed mechanisms by which an anarchist society would help to fix problems, and end tensions within communities.

 The Anarchist Alternative to Leninism   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
It is high time that Anarchists should explain their views, their aims, their tactics and meet this nursery tale of the spectre of anarchism with an explanation of the real differences between Anarchism and Leninism.
The anarchist revolution is marked by two key things: the abolition of capitalism and the state.
Kropotkin argued that anarchists "have endeavoured to promote their ideas directly amongst the labour organisations and to induce those unions to direct struggle against capital." The "chief aim of anarchism" is to "awaken" the "constructive powers of the labouring masses."

If we are going to denote and demand that all symbolism that degrades a people, then how can it be that there is no protest over the Amerikkkan red, White and Blue.
This flag… the Amerikkkan flag, is the true symbol of racism, exploitation, imperialism, sexism, and the deliberate destruction of our communities via the proliferation of drugs, which have enslaved more people than what chattel slavery had ever done.

Stirner has always been marginal to anarchist theory, and largely irrelevant to anarchist practice: the movements that constitute anarchism's appearance on the world stage-the First International, the Makhnovist rebellion in the Ukraine, the Spanish revolution of 1936-were workers' movements, populist and communitarian rather than egoist, scarcely compatible with Stirner's declarations that "truth...
Right now, large sections of the anarchist movement in the U.S. and elsewhere are influenced by the theoretical work of John Zerzan, whose opposition to all forms of "representation," symbolic and political, runs so deep as to include a call for the abolition of art and language itself.

It is an anarchist theory, suffused in the thorny style of Hegel, and in some aspects inspired by the dialectics of Marx, although Debord often disregarded the nuts&bolts of economic/judicial systems to concentrate on themes of worker/consumer alienation, and in particular a criticism of the pyschological aspects of Capitalism.
