The truth is that they're all the same. If the "anarchists" spent as much
time waging class struggle as they did splitting hairs with competing
ideologies, maybe they wouldn't have to point to a masked guy trashing a
Starbucks, or their ill-fated role in the Spanish Civil War as the pinnacle
of their achievement. The same could be said about a lot of the
"Marxist-Leninist" sects in the West today.

What gets me is that, for all the bellyaching "anarchists" do about being
non-dogmatic or what have you, they are awfully quick to condemn anything
that doesn't fit into their strict model of revolution. I suspect they're
more interested in looking good for taking the moral high ground than they
are in actually accomplishing anything.
