: Let's just get one thing straight here. According to my dictionary, anarchism is: "the political theory that individual freedom should be absolute and that all government and law is evil. Capitalism and private property would be abolished and be replaced by voluntary cooperation."

Well, some Anarchists, Christain Flavoured ones, may call the Government evil, most Anarchists would just fetishise teh state and blame it for repression, class war anarchists would see the state as an instrument of the ruling class. Anarchy comes from the Greek an- (Without) Archos (Leaders), it means without leaders, if you are a democrat you are an anarchist, because democracy of the people by the people must inevitably have no leaders (Think on that, is that true of america?).

: Anarchist is defined as: "Someone who believes in in anarchism, a terrorist".

Lets be clear once more: terrorism was invented as a word to describe teh actions of Governemnts, states such as Tsarist russia were terrorist because they ruled by terror. Strictly speaking the Bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were terrorist actions...
