What kicked off my curiosity about this was this video: -Link- At first glance it seems that this girl and her friends are being, for the most part, wrongly punished for simply not divulging information. That, of course, gets me interested because I despise the abuse of governmental power. So, I look into what is happening. Not much information is given, but it seems the woman and her friends have information about someone who has committed some time of serious crime. I look into deeper, not much else is given. I do, however, learn that this group believe that all government should be taken down, all prisoners freed and all prisons destroyed. This confuses me, obviously. What about rapists, murderers, pedophiles and the like? Do they not deserve to be locked away? Should they just be allowed to roam about harming people whenever they feel like it? So, I look at this particular group's blog. They post and brag of breaking windows, rioting, destroying property, cars, sabotaging railroads and train stations, and generally causing harm to people in one way or the other. They are proud of this. Proud of causing destruction. Yet, I'm quite certain, if someone kicked down their doors, broke their windows, destroyed their belongings, they'd be pissed. How is it okay to do that to others then? This is what I don't understand and was hoping someone here might better explain it. Is this how they want everyone to live? Destroying other people's property, inciting violence, living in mayhem. I've honestly never given Anarchists a second thought. Thinking they were just a group who didn't want a government, but aren't they proof they humans do need a government, structure, laws? Are these people just trying to justify their destructive and violent nature by hiding behind a "cause". If they are so anti-government, anti-judicial system, then why (in the case of the video) are they utilizing lawyers? Why are they taking part in the system they hate? If they were truly anti-government wouldn't they represent themselves instead? Can anyone explain?
