Nowadays the word "anarchist" seems to be thrown around a lot and taken to mean whatever people want it to mean, whether referring to any "violent" protester as an "anarchist" or reactionaries like Alex Jones calling themselves "anarchists." I think it's well worth 3 hours of people's time to check out this documentary (actually a compilation of a couple of documentaries) outlining what anarchism (anarcho-syndicalism/anarcho-communism) actually meant to the many thousands of people who lived and died for it in 19th and 20th century Spain, the area where the movement gained the most strength. Agree or disagree with every point they make, but it's a little known piece of history that could perhaps have some important lessons to teach us in this current age of unrest when both grassroots peoples' movements, and attempts to destroy, subvert and/or co-opt them are at a height. PS If I remember her telling me this correctly, the grandparents of "Rootsie", who blogs on these boards, were members of this movement.
