Sure, but whether they or the CNT viewed that as a "state" is another issue
as they believed in the grass roots cooperative set-up.  But obviously,
whether through a "junta" or the armed militia of the CNT, such a society is
a presided over by a state objectively-albeit a highly democratic one-in
that it is backed up by armed force, and a state in a marxist sense given
its class character, even if you call it anarchy.  There's the rub.
