People's perceptions of anarchism will vary according to what section of that babbling brook of bullshit, the mainstream media, they seek their information. The establishment would have people believe that anarchism is something odd, indulged in by a small group of oddities. An activity where these oddities run around the streets waving black flags and throwing things.
Of course to the informed, anarchism is an all encompassing way of life, a whole value structure that seeks freedom from coercion. and justice for all, a life of mutual aid, voluntary association and co-operation. Anarchism is the desire for all to reach their full potential in creativity for the benefit of all. This means that anarchism is always linked to "the arts", creativity, and self-expression. Though you may not have grasped it yet, anarchism is for you.
