More and more I see anarchists claiming propriety of the OWS movement. Anarchism would be the total destruction of the Constitution. Are you really willing to do that?

Anarchists are simply those of us who demonstrate the extreme ... in the effort to get others to think ...

when John Lennon ... (the Beatle not Vladmir Lenin) wrote "Imagine" ... he was being an Anarchist

There is a catch22 here. First, the current US government is not operating under the Constitution you speak of which is the 1787 constitution. the current government has fraudulently been presenting itself as "constitutional" for 140 years, wherein a great deal of damage has been done. This is why the anarchists are "screaming for freedom".

They don't know this either.

If you try to defend the "constitution" they turn their backs, or even explain this. If you continue they label you "government lover" and claim consensus is the only way.

This forum environment is not conducive to educating a group that is about social outrage who has no plant for anything, only outrage. Curiously they use rights the gov pretends it respects, while never the defending the social contract that creates the need for the pretense.

Article V is the way for anarchistic values to be expressed democratically within states for the ratification of amendment. Since we are 140 years overdue, the embedded corruption in state government logically makes this necessary.

Accordingly, in the face of state delegates to the Article V is the place for the anarchists to be "screaming for freedom", or whatever. Their presense there will actually work if they can define their intents and purposes clearly, they will get support from the public too.

That isn't the question. Are YOU, as an Amerikan citizen ( I assume) willing to tear up the Constitution for a society, so called, devoted to principles of Anarchy.

that doesn't make any sense .... why do you think Anarchists want to to tear up the Constitution ???

Umm...the very nature of an anarchist society precludes it. I suggest you read up a little more on anarchist philosophy.

I fail to see what this has to do with the O.P. Their are more and more people here that claim OWS is an anarchist movement. Many of them seem to truly believe in a society based upon those principles. And wonderful for Lennon. What does he have to do with anything.
