"An Anarchist FAQ" is an indepth introduction to anarchist ideas, ideals
and history. It explains why anarchism is anti-hierarchy, anti-state and
anti-capitalist. It discusses why anarchists oppose the current system,
how we plan to change it and what kind of society we want. It also
explains why libertarian socialism is the only form of socialism that will
work and how Marxists distort anarchist ideas and history. "An Anarchist FAQ" can be found at:
