The difficulty which anarchists meet in spreading their views does not depend upon the name they have given themselves, but upon the fact that their conceptions strike as all the inveterate prejudices which people have about the function of government, or "the state," as it is called.

This use of the word implies a broad definition: usually, any situation where there is no internationally recognised form of government can be considered "anarchy".
