Or is this whole thing sarcastic:



Why would anarchists 'get organized'?

I know this thread is a joke, but...

Anarchy typically refers to the absense of government or law; chaos is a lack of organization or structure. You can be a very orderly, organized anarchist.

To become better anarchists?

I have neighbors who are Christian Anarchists. They homeschool (read: anti-school) their children. They also fly a large pirate flag from second floor of their house.

Anarchists are those who advocate the absence of the state, arguing that common sense would allow for people to come together in agreement to form a functional society allowing for the participants to freely develop their own sense of morality, ethics or principled behaviour.

Unfortunately few in the human race seem to have enough common sense to allow this to actually succeed.
