  •  Defunkt anarchistic political parties (0+ / 0-)

    I think that the Tea Party will join the other anarchists that thought that THEY were powerful enough to dismantle democratic principles: Mugwumps, KnowNothings, Communist Party of America, Socialist Party of America are only a few. The Tea Party doesn't have to change its policies because they are doomed to an ignominious death by Democracy.

    •  Misuse of the term anarchist (0+ / 0-)

      None of these you mention are anarchist. Anarchism is a well-developed sociopolitical theory, not a catchall phrase to be used to scare people.

      The teaparty is clearly not anti-capitalist and socialist, as are anarchists, and the Communist and Socialist parties have been instrumental in persecuting anarchists in history. No, not all communists and socialists are anarchists.

      And anarchism isn't at all what you by implication define it to be. Anarchists support democracy, and far more in favor of real economic and political democracy than the Democratic party. And anarchism does not mean lack of organization.

      Damn, why don't people take the time to educate themselves to the meaning of the term?
