Anarchism is a widely disputed label, there are probably as many different kinds of anarchisms as there are different ideologies or traditions in statism. Therefore anarchism is used in a number of ways--by people who want to abolish the government, abolish capitalism, abolish violence, abolish technology, abolish large-scale production, or abolish society.

certain kind of anarchism, but it is our hope and goal to provide a basis for discussion. All anarchists are welcome!
This new site will cover different views on anarchism and the

Actually, we can tell you this: we will show you that all of
these different kinds of anarchism are unnecessary and build walls between us which have no foundation but ignorance. As a matter of fact, many anarchist beliefs are impossible to reconcile with a (coercion-)free society. Are they
then anarchist? The obvious answer is “no.” We will lead you towards a better
understanding of anarchism and the idea of a free society--where no force is
necessary to establish or uphold freedom and liberty.
