    Since when was anti-system the definition of anarchism?

    If I could accomplish one thing before I died, it would be educating everyone that the correct definition of anarchism is no rulers.

    Bullshit!

    Sorry, I know you are new and all. I am sick of hearing about all these "spiritual anarchists"

    Evolution?

    Mate, you do realize that humanity was not brought into this world with rulers,, police forces, national borders, and arbitrary laws?

    Nonsense.

    You obviously trust them to rule over you.

    Ah, the classic 'resistance is futile' argument.

    The purpose of the state is to protect the special interests of the ruling class at the expense of greater humanity. In that regard, I would say most have worked quite well.

    There are only two positions that an anarchist can credibly hold on violence

    1. Violence is never waranted
    2. Violence is warantted in self defense.

    The state uses institutionalized force to establish a monopoly on violence. In other words, it actively steals, imprisons, and kills to prevent others from stealing, imprisoning, and killing.

    By the way, I caution anarchists on the usage of the word government.

    I advise you to use the words rulers or states (which would be etymologically correct), since most anarchists advocate some form of social organization, which could loosely be defined as government.
