Headline of the week: anarchism edition

When journalism and a poor grasp of libertarian theory combine:

Anarchists' gathering surprisingly organized

Genius. The reporter went for the big gag there, and I commend him. But as we all know, or at least should know, anarchism isn't the absense of order. It's a political system where everyone takes responsibility for decision making and organization within a given a society. There is no 'state', because everyone is the state. A nice idea, but one largely impossible to achieve. Spend 15 minutes in a Wal-Mart and you'll see what I mean.
