"to arrive at anarchist thought one would have to desire it."
huh? i'm not following, could you explain that to an aging anarchist? what, exactly, does one have to desire?
i guess i didn't read it that way because of the phrase "to arrive at anarchist thought". which to me implies (mayhap incorrectly) that the person was unfamiliar with it to begin with. which is why i found the phrasing confusing. if one is not familiar with something, how could they desire that thing?
desiring something different - anything different - than what they have experienced their entire life is not just understandable, but (could be) admirable. but if they already know what that is (the different thing they want), then they must have some idea about it.
am i missing something major? i am simply being too literal?
edit: someone is unhappy with how things are, and they know they want something different. they don't know what that is, so they simply explore any/all ideas that are "different". they hit upon anarchy, and ... baboom!
is that what you meant, rs666? if so, i obviously misunderstood, sorry for being so dense.
dot: "i think that the point of this kind of site is to be available for questions from people who don't do any research"
which kind of makes this site their source of (initial) research, in a way. the process of asking a question here implies a certain level of interest (trolls notwithstanding). so what does that mean? fuck if i know.
i definitely understand the difficulties in figuring this shit out (i mean the site's purpose/intent, from the perspective of those implementing it). and you have a commendable amount of patience, i must say. :-)
Just a thought, maybe when the thing up top that pops up, make crime and/or punishment clickable to lead to http://anarchy101.org/search?q=crime. Perhaps that'll lessen the repeated question on those topics and maybe they'll ask questions based on answers of whichever question or something.
