Look my other response to you was apparently lacking the substance the collective expects from its peanut gallery, so I will spell it out plainly. You obviously didn’t read this essay or look into the author’s other work on anarchism in this period and region because the definition of anarchism the author is using isn’t what you are implying. It isn’t some essay that is just saying “oh look here is anarchism but it wasn’t called that.” No. This essay is about the influence of pretty well established anarchists in name and in substance.

Long story short I think you are doing a genuine disservice by trying to dismiss this research. That’s sort of like calling you an asshole, but it’s nicer.
