: : Equality = Marxism - Individual Freedom = Anarchism...

Hmm interesting.... I think that should be
Marxism + Individual Freedom = Anarchism

: 'Anarchism is bourgeois philosophy turned inside out.'---Lenin. Anarchism is but the repudiation of society's interconnectedness, a selfish ideology fully compatible with capital. What anarchism really desires is to simply set up shop again---with new monopolists controlling the means of production.

From my understanding of things, anarchism is is basically against hierarchial, elitist authority, and for voluntary labor associations. Note the Spanish Civil War for evidence of this. Since this seems to have a lot in common with what you are arguing, why would you equate our philosophy with chaos?
