There was lots of interesting discussion yesterday about anarchist, and their objectives in the early 1900's. It was suggested that "Anarchy" and "Chaos" are two different things, and those who wanted Anarchy did not want Chaos. The picture above was taken in 1908, 20 seconds after a bomb went off at a rally of 5,000 anarchist at Union Square in New York City. The anarchist pictured had brought bombs to the rally, and were about to throw one at the police. The bomb went off before they threw it, injuring a large number in the crowd.
So, I must ask you . . . if anarchist do not want chaos, why do they bring bombs to their meetings? Today, elements of the anarchist movement can still be seen in the violent protests at the various G-8/G-20 meetings. Again, if Anarchist do not want Chaos, why are their demonstrations SO chaotic?
