"I actually see this anarchism as a form of marxism, mainly because many of

"reformed anarcho-marxist."  "pure" anarchism appears pretty utopian and facile, 
and probably could be included in the laundry list of faux socialisms in part 3 
of the *manifesto*.  but an anarchist politics (anarchism does strike at 
governance, rather than economics) coupled with a marxian conception of history is 
a useful combo.  i.e., not all socialist activism need be within a leninist
