Anarchist Schools of Thought

Anarchist Schools Of Thought

Anarchism is generally defined as the political philosophy which holds the state to be undesirable, unnecessary, and harmful, or alternatively as opposing authority in the conduct of human relations. Proponents of anarchism (known as "anarchists") advocate stateless societies based on non-hierarchical voluntary associations.

Anarchist anthropologist David Graeber has noted that while the major schools of Marxism always have founders (e.g. Leninism, Trotskyism, Maoism), schools of anarchism "almost invariably emerge from some kind of organizational principle or form of practice", citing anarcho-syndicalism, individualist anarchism, and platformism as examples.

Famous quotes containing the words thought, anarchist and/or schools:

    Therefore Lord, not only are you that than which a greater cannot be thought but you are also something greater than can be thought.
    Anselm of Canterbury (1033–1109)

    I am an anarchist in politics and an impressionist in art as well as a symbolist in literature. Not that I understand what these terms mean, but I take them to be all merely synonyms of pessimist.
    Henry Brooks Adams (1838–1918)

    In schools all over the world, little boys learn that their country is the greatest in the world, and the highest honor that could befall them would be to defend it heroically someday. The fact that empathy has traditionally been conditioned out of boys facilitates their obedience to leaders who order them to kill strangers.
    Myriam Miedzian, U.S. author. Boys Will Be Boys, ch. 3 (1991)
