Definition of Anarchy: Opposition to State Authority in favor of Voluntary Associations, i.e., Gangs. Anarchy is a supposed Political Philosophy that holds the state, and any other organized authority, to be immoral. Government, or any other entity that holds the power to use force against citizens is opposed. Under its own definition, anarchists recognize no rule of law. Unlike Communism, which calls for a period of training called by Marx the Dictatorship of the Proletariat, or Socialism, during which mankind is trained and perfected for the state of statelessness, anarchists seek to move directly into that state, right now.
By its own definition, anarchy would be a government-less, authority-less, co-equal, supposedly voluntary society of sorts in which everything is held in common and everybody works for the community; a total collective. The definition of anarchy insists on an absence of force and an absence of authority.
How would it work? How could all people be expected to cooperate with the collective, share in work, responsibilities, property and so forth? Anarchists say that people would need to be educated in life in anarchy and then everything would be fine. But, who is to do this education, and by what authority would they teach it? How many generations could any collective operating by the definition of anarchy last?
The shared property and shared income – where is it to come from? How is it distributed? Who does the distribution, and by what authority? What happens when all the wealth that the anarchist collective starts out with is all used up?
By the very definition of anarchy, anarchy is a completely disorganized organization, which is, of course, an impossibility.
Modern public (government) education in America is infected with Communist-Anarchist-Revolutionary propaganda. An important goal of public education is to prepare students to be future revolutionaries to topple the existing system. To that end, it teaches children to oppose Authority and challenge it everywhere. The type of student the system hopes to produce is this:
That is a pretty good definition of an anarchist. It is also a pretty good definition of a potentially dangerous and violent sociopath. There is nothing left for him to be alienated against. But, this is what public school teachers are taught to teach; this is the product they are supposed to produce.
When I first looked at Communism, I thought nothing could possibly be more stupid. I was wrong. Anarchy is so stupid it makes my feet hurt.

Yes, anarchism is even stupider and more out of touch with reality than Communism. The chaos that reigned at the Catholic Worker under Dorothy Day is a perfect example. She enabled the chaos and immorality, while ironically she was often able to escape its effects because of her travel and speaking schedule. In 1964, while at the Manhattan Catholic Worker, she rented a room in a neighborhood apartment that was not connected with the Catholic Worker so that she could write in peace. She also defended and idealized the disreputable Ammon Hennacy, another anarchist who shared her wacky views.
Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.

Definitions of all the "isms" with a lot of consensus of thinking behind them, which makes them popular opinions or ideas seeking political favor.
Definition of Marxism: Total control of means of production, including workers. The definition of Marxism describes the social, economic and governmental philosophy of Karl Marx, co-author of the Communist Manifesto.
Definition of Freudianism: The psychoanalytical thought and practice of Freud, Jung and Kinsey. This definition of Freudianism addresses Sigmund Freud's turn of psychological focus from cognition and intellect to the unconscious & subconscious mind.
The definition of Darwinism in a nutshell. In the definition of Darwinism we find the foundational priciples upon which the quest for the atheist holy grail: the purely material origin of life itself.
Definition of Islam: Ideology of Military Conquest Masquerading as a Religion. The Definition of Islam describes the “Convert, Submit or Die” War Strategy of Mohammed.
The term Marxist defined: Marxism today has overtaken many earlier terms. Re the term Marxist defined in contemporary usage. The term Liberal doesn’t mean what it used to mean either.
Definition of Conservatism: "That government is best that governs the least." A definition of conservatism must recognize that, politically speaking, the terms Liberal and Conservative have traded places.
Definition of Libertarian : A Pro-Constitutional Practical Atheist. The definition of Libertarian describes a religiously-cleansed conservatism defending core American political values while denying moral absolutes.
Definition of Capitalism: Economic Organization based on Private Property. Any true definition of Capitalism must state that it is purely an Economic system, not a Government system, and it works most efficiently and profitably under Representative Government.
Our argument supporting the Rule of Subsidiarity, practicality and common sense. The moral and organizational Rule of Subsidiarity is crucial to the rights of man and essential for freedom.
Definition of Communism: Marx's theoretical classless utopian society. The Marxian definition of Communism involves the theoretical, perfect, classless society with common ownership of all economic "means of production."
Definition of Fascism: System of Marxism resisting the Worker's Revolution. A true definition of Fascism must recognize its deep roots in Marxism.
Definition of Anarchy: Opposition to State Authority in favor of - well - Gangs. They said it couldn’t be done; but even the most cursory Definition of Anarchy shows it to be even more stupid than Communism.
Definition of Socialism: Intermediary phase between Marxism and Communism. Definition of Socialism: 1) The older ideology with "collective" ownership of power and means of production; 2) Marx's "Dictatorship Of The Proletariat" evolving toward Communist Utopia.
Definition of Democracy: Ideology stressing direct or electoral majority rule. The definition of Democracy as a form of government involves policy and law determined by the actual, real majority of the people governed.

Liberal Democracy defines elected representative government under rule-of-law. Liberal Democracy is differentiated from Social Democracy by not restricting the right to private property, which is to say, the means of production.
A pure Democracy that left the natural economy alone would be ideal. Pure Democracy in the Jeffersonian model, with unfettered free market Capitalism, would out-perform any other system.
Description of pure Socialism - the ideal that all Socialism is driving toward. A true, pure Socialism would be something considerably less than the Utopians dream of, since perfection is not of this world, or of this life, and will never be encountered in either.
Social Democracy defines an attempt to force-fit Marxist ideas into a Democracy. Social Democracy, neither fish nor foul, seeks, by devious means, by the gradual rather than revolutionary path, the ultimate victory of Communism, or, Communist Utopia.

"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
