The word "Anarchist" is used with very different meanings depending upon who is talking. merriam-webster.com says "1) a person who rebels against any authority, established order, or ruling power. [That could be any teenager.] 2) one who uses violent means to overthrow the established order." That description could include George Washington, the Tea Party, as well as Che Guevara. It could also mean meatheads that get a thrill out of provoking a riot. I've noticed plants from White Supremacist camps who are charged with provoking a riot; these are also included in the definition of anarchist.
But there are also non-violent Anarchists, who advocate the reduction of central government influence, and increased local control of government, by non-violent means. Non-violent anarchist used to be #3 in the dictionary meanings, but seems to have been purged. Often those from Europe and South America understand this aspect of Anarchism.
In other words, Anarchism is when the People take control of the government whether it be through violent means or by non-violent means. If this is true, then Anarchism may be the only true Democracy!.
I love my country. I grew up thinking that the USA was unique because we have less government corruption and are guided by Rule of Law. I was proud that our war criminals in WWII & Vietnam were not tortured like the enemies did to our POW's. Now I see that all reversed!
My country has fallen from its moral height to become a Corporatocracy. Now service to People has been replaced by For Profit Only. Our government takes anti-Constitutional actions justified by an ongoing state of war emergency. And our legislators on both sides of the aisle seem to all be collaborators.
I am driven to fix things that are broken. I am a healer. I also have a charisma that confounds me. But a charismatic figure is what can be the catalyst to set things right. Some say it is hopeless, and I say they have been conquered. Not me; hopeless or not, I don’t wallow in hope. I act! I aim to create a massive coalition of all the people who long for Peace and Justice, and we can overwhelm our elected representatives non-violently. We need a group of Constitutional amendments that will create a “Wall of separation between Corporation and State.” MOVE TO AMEND!
