    I suppose the issue is whether Americans have wrong appropriated the term. Not sure about that myself. There is a sub-set who do seem rather genuine (and are naturally suspicious of the Republicans)
    Yea I am not sure if many Americans clearly understand certain terms. They either see it on social media or tv and think its cool. A lot of the anarchism we see might be wrongly appropriated but it stems from anger over income inequality. They believe "burning it all down" is the only way to fix it. I heard some far left liberals say that not voting for Hillary was the fastest way to achieve that. Trump would be so terrible so fast that people would rush to progressive ideas. Had Hillary won, it would have been status quo for many years.

    You'll get the 'give the anarchist a cigarette' types that undoubtedly will smash up the odd McDonalds, but its typically focused on eliminating centralised power (thus the links with socialism, given reference to democracy in the workplace).

    I'm with the 'far left liberals'. You don't get anywhere by using Trump as an excuse to support the elites and status quo.

    Compare their rallies.

    You know, the rallies that all the leftist said did not mean anything.
    Many of the people at Bernie rallies wouldn't have awaken to go vote by the time the polls closed.

    regardless, it still boils down to control and who has it - who has the final say as to what is done (or not) and whose job it is to perform it.
