The philosophy of a new social order based on liberty unrestricted by man-made law; the theory that all forms of government rest on violence, and are therefore wrong and harmful, as well as unnecessary.
The above is Ms. Goldman’s definition of anarchism.
[She hoped to help move this country to the next stage beyond our present form of government. And the above almost sounds like a Libertarian tenet. But she also advocated “from everyone according to their ability and to everyone according to their need“. And she was an inspiration to President McKinley’s assassin.
It is possible we may be facing “the next stage” of government in the near future. Let us beware of forms which create hope of an utopia and bring poverty, violence, and everlasting servitude.–Joe]
