I'm not particularly fond of self-identification with groups. For example I embrace the ideals of liberty and in particular the God-given right of each person to be a creative expresion of free will. There are some anarchist leanings there, expecially when govenrments use coercion of force to command allegiance without the option of a personal opt-out.

When you use a single term it can be taken to mean so many things that it is easily misunderstood and becomes an automatic label of contention. Anarchist was a term spun by those who foment war as bomb throwing lunatics. It is a term used in general to denigrate those who do not wish to be ruled by those who are dependent on the sene of 'security' they find in giving up their freedom.

In this article Gary identifies five 'anarchists' and provides an enlightening but brief window into their thinking. The are...

1) Henry David Thoreau
2) Emma Goldman
3) Mohandas Gandhi
4) Howard Zinn
5) Noam Chomsky
