: 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?

Why did the 'leaders' of the CNT - FAI become bourgeois ministers in the popular front government of Spain? (I.E., Why did the anarchists defend the 'shadow' of the bourgeoisie?)
