Anarchist FAQ

McSpotlight a while back you posted a excellent link to a websight called the Anarchist FAQ, it's the best site I've ever seen on the subject and beats the shit out of the crappy books like Woodcocks "Anarchism" (although Gurin's Anarchism wasnt that bad) is it ever going to be published? Is fundraising required? Could any help be provided in that direction by the people here?


P.S. I'm not quite an anarchist, swear, I'm a libertarian democratic "state" socialist, (My God see what you've done I used to love that word now I've got to use quotation marks to display digust/distrust!! You terrible people!!)

McSpotlight: Can't remember exactly, but I think this was the site linked to.

However, there's a bit of politicking here; as well as "The Anarchist FAQ" there is also "The Anarchist Theory FAQ" written by Bryan Caplan; the first document is written by conventional anarchists, whereas Bryan Caplan is an anarcho-capitalist; as you can probably imagine, each side champions their own version as the best one and pours some scorn on the opposing side.

(Still, at least both sides permit the other to argue freely!)

The latest comment on the war of the FAQs is in the Appendix of the Anarchist FAQ.

Hope that helps.

Rex, McSpotlight.
