Let me say it again ...

.... because it cannot be said often enough: those who strike, demonstrate or riot for more state control and more redistribution of wealth by the state, whether in Athens or in London (where the inevitable Socialist Worker posters are much in evidence) are NOT anarchists. They are not anarchists of any kind, not even Bakuninites (and those are close to socialists); they are not anarcho-syndicalists, let alone anarcho-capitalists. One reader of this blog has suggested that they should be called anarcho-statists. Said reader is right but Prince Kropotkin is spinning in his grave.
