"While an exciting idea, anarchism in practice is, well, boring. Far from what window-smashing insurrectionists are doing, it mostly takes the form of an extremely slow-moving and highly rule-bound process of collective deliberation. Anarchy, paradoxically, means more rules, not fewer, and more collective responsibility, not less.
The meeting ended up taking three long hours. But this characteristic tedium is a feature of anarchism and one that is inseparable from its insistence on genuine democracy.
While the reasons for these mischaracterizations are complicated, I would argue that in principle, anarchist organizing comes close to something that might cautiously be called leftist populism—a democratic politics in opposition to an entrenched elite."

that hurt my feelings, why u gotta be so cruel? i think i don't like anarchy anymore, you can have it : .(
