    Anarchism, also known as Anarchy, Anarchy without Adjectives or Mother Anarchy, is an ideology inhabiting the bottom of the political compass that advocates for a society without rulers or constituted authority.

    She is the mother of countless anarchist ideologies and is known to love all of her children except for some failed children. Unlike most other balls, whose gender is undefined, Anarchism is always female and wears a grey bow, as a reference to the Platformism.png Russo-Ukrainian anarchist song, Анархия-мама Сынов Своих Любит (Eng: Mother Anarchy Loves Her Sons).[1]


    The start of the Anarchist Theory

    Anarchism has been used as a term a long time ago, and used to mean simply "without rulers", deriving from the greek word ἀναρχος (anarkhos), with great emphasis on its use during the French Revolution by FrenchRep.png Robespierre to disqualify more radical groups like the Babouvism.png enragés, a group which inspired Soc.png Socialism as a whole, but the term had mostly a negative connotation. The ideology took shape after Proudhon.png Pierre-Joseph Proudhon self proclaimed himself as an anarchist formally, and because of the word's ambiguity, based his theory on organizing a society based on Thar.png Anti-Authoritarianism and Soc.png Socialism, and although he had differences with Ancom.png later Anarchists ideologies (a lot because of his emphasis on Marketsoc.png Market Socialism and Anin.png individualism), still he laid the basic foundations of Anarchism. During the XVII century, different branches truly developed even more the ideology, to the way we're accustomed to in the Modern Age, Anarchism took two different paths, a more Ormarxf.png Marxist analysis, with notable names like BakuninHeg.png Mikhail Bakunin and the Acol.png Anarcho-Collectivism, Kropotkin.png Piotr Kropotkin and Malatesta.png Errico Malatesta with Ancom.png Anarcho-Communism and the Socan2.png Social Anarchism umbrella term, for the more collectively minded anarchists ideologies, in contrast with the Anin.png individually minded anarchists such as Tucker.png Benjamin Tucker and Spooner.png Lysander Spooner, marking as well economical differences, between Anmark2.png Market Anarchism, or Mut Alt.png Mutualism and GE.png Gift Economy, and sparkling the first forms of Right-Anarchism.png Right-Anarchism in the end of the century, inspired by Austrobert.png Austrian School, Chilib.png Chicago School and Libertarian.png Libertarianism in general, as infamously Ancapf.png Anarcho-Capitalism.

    Anarchist Actions History

    Anti-Capitalist or Not?

    The first individuals to describe themselves as Anarchists without adjectives were thoroughly anti-capitalist, with Anarchist without Adjectives Voltairine de Cleyre saying in 1907:

    The hells of capitalism create the desperate; the desperate act - desperately!

    Malatesta, Errico, "Towards Anarchy" in: Turcato, Davide (ed.) 2014, "The Method of Freedom, AK Press, pp. 299

    But it's important to take into consideration the meaning of the terms employed. Voltairine, after all, also said:

    (Anarchists) are firm in the idea that the system of employer and employed, buying and selling, banking, and all the other essential institutions of Commercialism, centred upon private property, are in themselves good, and are rendered vicious merely by the interference of the State.

    Voltairine de Cleyre, Anarchism. Originally published in Free Society, 13 October 1901. Published in Exquisite Rebel: The Essays of Voltairine de Cleyre, edited by Sharon Presley, SUNY Press 2005, p. 224.

    However historical context is necessary, as these statements predate modern Ancapf.png Anarcho-Capitalism, and with modern Anarchists without adjectives such as Fred Woodworth instead saying:

    I have no prefix or adjective for my anarchism. I think syndicalism can work, as can free-market anarcho-capitalism, anarcho-communism, even anarcho-hermits, depending on the situation.

    Fred Woodworth, An essay by Fred Woodworth in Avrich, Paul (2006). Anarchist Voices. Stirling: AK Press. p. 475.

    Personality and Behaviour

    Anarchy is a mother and therefore portrays quite motherly traits within the comics, but because she is anarchist, she can be quite lax in her parenting.

    International Relations

    Since world doesn't have any Illum.png worldwide government, many theorists of international relations studies use the word anarchy to describe the order of the international system—independent states with no central authority above them. On this foundation was developed 4 schools of thought: Mach.png Realism, Neorealism.png Neorealism, Lib.png Liberalism, Neoliberal-icon.png Neoliberalism.
