AUTHOR: Ben Debney of the Anarcho-Syndicalist Group of Melbourne (Australia) 'What Is Anarchism?' Anarchism is a social philosophy which says that every individual has the right to make decisions for her or himself about things that affect her or him.
The State, meaning the sum total of the police, the law courts, etc and NOT society, is the system whereby the right of the capitalists to monopolise social wealth (the social wealth that should be owned collectively and managed equally by all) is consecrated in law.
Respect for the law being maintained by means of state violence, through the police the army, and so on, the state thus becomes a mechanism of social control, a mechanism for oppression the people for the benefit of the rich.

 Anarchism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Anarchism comprises various political philosophies, political organisations and social movements that advocate the elimination of the State, and what are believed to be authoritarian social and economic relationships.
Insurrectionary anarchism is not an ideological solution to all social problems, a commodity on the capitalist market of ideologies and opinions, but an on-going praxis aimed at putting an end to the domination of the state and the continuance of capitalism, which requires analysis and discussion to advance.
Opinions differ in various areas, such as whether violence should be employed to foster anarchism, what type of economic system should exist, whether social hierarchy or unequal wealth distribution is opposed, questions on the environment and industrialism, and anarchists role in various movements.

 The Negativity of Anarchism - David Weick
Anarchism then is the social and political philosophy that proposes the eradicating of all divisions between (political) haves and havenots, the dissolving rather than the redistributing of power; and the abolishing of identities of ruler and subject, leader and led, learned and ignorant, superior and inferior, master and servant, human and inhuman.
Anarchism rather than Marxism may be capable of sustaining a conception of genuine social dialectic, for Marx's theory of superstructure and the primacy of impersonal economic forces inhibits, if it does not entirely rule out, an apprehension of continuous interplay among the many arenas of politics and liberation.
Anarchism can be understood as the generic social and political Idea that expresses negation of all power, sovereignty, domination, and hierarchical division, and a will to their dissolution; and expresses rejection of all the dichotomizing concepts that on ground of Nature, Reason, History, God or other, divide people into those dominant and those justly subordinated.

 BlackCrayon.com: dictionary: 'anarchism'
Anarchism is grounded in a rather definite social-psychological hypothesis: that forceful, graceful and intelligent behaviour occurs only when there is an uncoerced and direct response to the physical and social environment; that in most human affairs, more harm than good results from compulsion, top-down direction, bureaucratic planning, pre-ordained curricula, jails, conscription, states.
Anarchism is a negative; it holds that one thing, namely government, is bad and should be abolished.
This brings us to Anarchism, which may be described as the doctrine that all the affairs of men should be managed by individuals or voluntary associations, and that the State should be abolished.

Purchase's piece, 'Social Ecology, Anarchism and Trade Unionism', is a malicious essay that begins by accusing me of writing belligerently and 'insult(ing) American anarchists and trade unionists' then goes on to heap upon me some of the most vituperative and ad hominem attacks that I've encountered in a long time.
If there is any 'filching' going on, it may well be by the guardians of the anarchist ossuary who have turned the rather smug boast 'We said it long ago' into a veritable industry, while themselves benefiting from whatever prestige anarchism has gained over the past decades by virtue of its association with social ecology.
