The London anarchist bookfair is on this weekend.

Lots of independent thinkers. It's a little too late for us to put on
anything formal this year, but i'll be wandering around talking about
the hackspace anyway.

How that bookshop killed any hope I had in anarchism: http://molotovcocktailumbrellas.blogspot.com/2011/06/this-way-to-freedom.html

we can, but since we were taught to read by an institution (and hence an arm) of the state, we prefer to avoid doing it.

Would it be okay if you all formed little committees to arrive at a consensus about what the words meant first?

I don't see why anarchists should be particularly embarrassed that
no-one can agree on what the word means.

Have you had a debate about "capitalism" or "socialism" recently? Each
of these ideas is a very broad umbrella with hundreds of years of
history and debate beneath it. Should we expect any of these political
ideas to really be summable as pithy slogan on a t-shirt?

I meant all the words. It was a reading / anarchosyndicalism joke.

Your point still stands, though.
