The word Anarchy is often misused and misunderstood. Anarchism is a political theory that holds all government authority to be unnecessary and undesirable and advocates a society based on voluntary cooperation and free association of individuals and groups in order to satisfy their needs. Due to the threat this imposes upon established authority, "Anarchism" has been, and is still, misused by power holders as violence and chaos. Anarchism does not mean death and destruction. It means you should be free; that no one should enslave you, boss you, rob you, or impose upon you. It means you should be free to do the things you want to do; and that you should not be compelled to do what you do not want to do. True anarchists believe that governments will inherently begin to exploit the people it wishes to protect. The idea is that because governments and those who run the government have power that is not granted to the rest of society, those who have power will use it to exploit and corrupt others. Anarchists do not promote a system that is lawless, but a system in which all people are equal and decisions are made by all individuals involved and not just by those in power.
Freedom. Sovereignty. Equality. Solidarity.
