People don't like Anarchy. It doesn't create freedom when people are looting and breaking into peoples houses. Don't scare people, please.

please read some political theory so you don't embarrass yourself. anarchy is not chaos. its exactly what you all are participating in at the occupation. Its simply leaderless self-organization. no hierarchies, no representatives. power-with, not power-over.

I don't understand why you are so quick to make fun of me. I'm simply pointing out the perspective of average Americans, please keep that in mind. Can we agree to assume good intentions? Thank you.

Please adapt theory to reality. Anarchy may be a political system's anti-toxin but toxin is all they hear. When practiced openly and boldly, you better have deep-pocketed sponsor you're convinced is altruistic endorser of freedom and name yourself something else, like Tparty.

what do you mean "practiced openly and boldly"? all of you at the occupation, doing what you are doing, are practicing anarchy -voluntary cooperation and mutual aid- thats why so many activists these days identify with anarchism. its exactly the opposite of the top-down social system that has been dominating humans and the earth since the beginning of civilization. also, if you are engaging in illegal actions, the point is not to get caught. thats why its nice to remain anonymous at protests. who wants to sacrifice themselves to the state? we don't need anymore martyrs

My sarcasm about Tparty faux anarchy got lost in translation apparently. Until you're prepared for martyrdom (vs. intentionally inviting it), your convictions will be found wanting.

You do realize that a great number of the organizers of this occupation are anarchists, right?

Please, don't believe what the mainstream media tells you about anarchists and read some political philosophy.

its pretty much done. There's a guy making T shirts with the fist surrounded by leaves. it means power to the masses through non violence.
