Okay fist off sorry about the dumb post... as you can see I am a newbie here and my first post weren't really smart. I know being new is no exception for my stupidity.

I have read a lot of files on anarchy and I don't know what anarchy is anymore... is it just simple chaos and madness? Or is it a philosophy on freeing our suppressed selves in this bleak society? Or am I reading way to far into it? I know that all newbies can't just be spoon feed info and told what to do... but I really don't know what to do.

Maybe some of you seasoned veterans can help me out. What is anarchy really about? Havoc and mayhem? Or meaningful destruction <img src=" title="" src="graemlins/devil.gif" /> ?

I am a newbie as well. Personally I think that there should be some kind of meaning, a purpose to the mayhem.

I am thinking back to the movie Fight Club (1999), there was a great deal of havoc. But there was a reason, a message that was trying to be announced to the world. Especially the last scene, if all the banks are destroyed, then there is no division of the social classes.

I see it as a way to make a public statement, just as others might protest in front of government offices; nuclear facilities; or oil refineries.

Yah, there should be some goal that all anarchists strive to achieve. Or maybe anarchy is just the goal of total public terror and vandilsim. i don't know it seems that any punk can run around and vandalize shit, but it takes a dedicated person or persons to make a persice bomb and set it in a location to cause terror and mayhem. <img src=" title="" src="graemlins/devil.gif" />

Read political philosophy. Read books like 1984, Brave New World, Childhood's End, Animal Farm etc and make up your own mind about social/political utopias. Anarchy is a form of government where all unnecessary rule is abolished. Acording to the Webster's dictionary:
Anarchy: from Greek anarkhi, from anarkhos, without a ruler : an- without; arkhos- ruler; (without ruler) There's probably good anarchy links in this section in other threads so go look at them if you're really interested. Or better still look up on google "Political philosophy" or simply "Anarchy theory, concepts/whatever"

Well how do you go about trying to achieve this type of government in my local town. I was thinking of starting with my school cause I hate school. I tried blowing up an aerosol can but we tried it in the middle of a field where everyone could see... yah that was dumb we all got in shit. I guess i'm lucky we just moved in to a new school and our old school is right across the feild so we can wreck it.

Jesus Christ people.
An - without
archy - government or ruler

Put them together and what do we get? Without government or ruler!

I've answered your question. Now do as unreal says, and shut up.

"BUT UNREEL U JUST DONT GET IT LOL!!"

Die. I'm sick of all you little anarchy kids posting your bullshit about anarchy as some sort of utopia. The only reason you discuss anarchy is because you have the idea in your brain that you're special, and that you have it rough because you have to get up and go to school. There are no deep philosophical underpinnings to anarchy. Admit it and just drop the crap. All anarchy is is a bunch of ignorant suburban kids who think they can make a difference. Ever met a credible adult anarchist? Thought not. Grow up.

Actually I have a recommendation for you. Go to your local Barnes and Noble and pick up The Republic, by Plato. They've got a Classics series going on right now, and you can get it for 4 bucks. It's not about the Republic form of government, but really more about social contracts between a government and society. Plato explores what he would deem to be an ideal government, not a specific form, but the people involved in the government. He wrote this when he founded an Academy in Athens, the purpose of which was to develop philosopher statesmen. This is when he was fairly young, in his early 20s. When you're finished with that, read Laws, which was his final work. It's essentially a reexamination of the Republic, the flaws in his ideas, and how best to improve upon them.

Read those two works and you will understand another way of thinking regarding the relationship between society and government. You may not agree with any or all of the views, but having an understanding of multiple views allows you to better analyze information, solidify, and improve upon your own views.
