Anarchism is one of those well-intentioned and sympathetic, yet totally unrealistic ideologies. Shame, really. As an ideal, it's all right. Practically, it doesn't really work.
Any examples of it working?
Whoever made this states that those are examples of functioning Anarchist societies, yet pretty much all of those failed horrifically. What am I missing here? Is creating a small rag-tag group of Anarchist revolutionaries who capture and control a relatively inconsequential patch of land during a war or perhaps a city for an extremely short period of time, only to be demolished internally from infighting or external attack considered "successful" nowadays?
Collapse due to external attack doesn't somehow excuse the Anarchist societies though. If the Anarchistic settlement/Communes/"States" or whatever fell because of invasion or outside meddling, that only proves that they aren't built to last and are incapable of any sort of longevity.
That doesn't really tell me a lot. Sources? Dates?
you ever heard of scrolling down? i hear it helps!
I agree with this.
