Wow, you are really reaching for excuses. People in India in the 1970s-80s knew perfectly well what anarchy and anarchism meant. There was no translation problem.

I studied K's teachings for 15 years, went to talks in Ojai, Victoria, Canada, and Brockwood Park, UK. and was close friends with people who knew him well. The authority he talks about is almost always in the context of spiritual and religious authority. He only rarely railed against political authority, and only because he saw that politicians were not 'enlightened' and had no love in their hearts. Which essentially circles back to spirituality. He always told the students in his K schools that they must obey their teachers. The curriculum of his schools included his own teachings, but he also insisted on academic excellence so that his students were well prepared to get good jobs. This was his idea of revolution. It's safe to say that not one of his schools has ever produced an enlightened teacher like K supposedly was.

So much for being against all forms of authority.
